Had a great time, but didn't find anything. First time ever panning. I was down probably 12 inches and covered 3-4 different locations.
I really didn't know what I was looking at. So, I just panned down to a half cup or so of sand, and once i started seeing a lot of black specks in the sand, I poured all that off into a separate bucket.
I did that 10-12 times, and took that bucket back up to the cabin. I guess there could be some powdery gold hidden around that black sand. I'm going to look at that next.
Fun day, gold or not.
