    Anyone have any tips or tricks to find a little gold in the desert. I have been working the claims in the little San Diego area and haven’t found a thing. Was hoping to purchase a dry washer at some point but until I can find a little color I think I will hold off on that. Been working the smaller washes, sides of the washes, and in between the washes. I guess I don’t know we’re to look.

    Thanks for any tips

    Try going out on club outings. You can learn a lot from helping dig in the right areas. Otherwise its sample , sample , sample , till you hit the gold!

    I've had best luck in the banks of the washes and up on the flat benches where there are often small feeder run-off areas. I generally always find fine gold in King#1, Yahoo#2, and Dumb Luck. Dig a half bucket, classify to 1/4 or 1/8" and pan (with water) on site as a test to be sure there's gold there before spending alot of time digging. If that sample doesn't show a few colors, move on to another area. Don't get discouraged, we all usually get skunked alot just starting out. Goioid luck. Enjoy and have fun!
