This is my first GPAA everything. First claim, first detecting, first panning so please bare with me if this is not the greatest report. :-)
I spent part of 2 days there last week, 11/2 and 11/4. I did not find any gold detecting but did find bullets, casings, a tin can, a penny and one "hot Rock". oh and maybe some lead.
Surprising to me I did find gold. It is really small and flat I classified it and it passed through 40 mesh. I can see it and I can see more when I put it under a magnifying glass but I can't separate it from the black sand and there is clay I think which makes it worse for the new guy trying to pan it.
I also found some interesting rocks. All in all it was not hard to find, decent parking and was a fun day. It will be more fun as I learn more about what I need to do to recover the gold.
