Need to mount a detector on it that would make you wife happy and you could cover more ground. Just a thought

While I do not pan for gold I was intrigued by trucks with orange flags (like bicycle flags) in Elko, Nevada when I was there a couple years ago. It turns out that this is the symbol that gold miners are required to carry. There were hundreds of them. Check out Elko, NV on the Web for details.
Happy Camping!

We have a second house outside Carson City, NV that touches BLM land. We ride our ATVs on the BLM trails and there are MANY abandoned mines here. The process for mining kind of dried up as water dried up. Now there's other methods for getting the gold and other elements out of the rocks. So people are starting to file claims again and they've been real sucessful. I love just rock-hounding out there. We have a Whites too--I think its called an XL Pro. Great little instrument. My husbands hoping to find relics. So far we've just found some old wagon wheel nails. I call it rusty gold. I love finding these old pieces of history. Love going to the old ghost towns too and there are many of them around here.

Along those same lines with the price of gold being what it is you can scratch out a bit of pocket change. Not saying you are going to get rich. I have spent many back breaking hours in Wa. bent over a gold pan and never see a spec but its like hunting a mountain goat in Co you are there for the adventure even if you come home empty. Just great to be outdoors on this side of the grass.

...on finding gold in the PNW...yes i agree Mike.
And can say for my wife she will shout out like she found a penny weight nugget every time she finds a flake in a patch of moss. Though i will say at season's end added up she will average a half ounce or more...so it does pay for the gas!
