Hello All,

   Here we are again, a partner and I placering a dry creek bed.  The process of placering is to remove all the overburden (rocks, gravel) and process or work the paypayer/bedrock.  We are doing that by using rakes, shovels, crevice tools and then using metal detectors to scan the paylayer and bedrock for gold nuggets.  

This process is back breaking hard work, but can be very rewarding in the right locations.  As you can see in this video, we hit a nice crevice that had a hidden beauty in it, a 3/4 ounce gold nugget.  The nugget was wedged below the hardpack gravels and wedged in a bedrock crack.  

In this video we were using the Minelab GPZ 7000 metal detector, Garrett AT Pinpointer and several hand tools, including "Two Toes" nice crevice tool he shipped me.  We have gotten a ton of use from this tool, very good on narrow bedrock cracks and holds up well.  Contact Gary for more information, or visit his "Two Toes Youtube Channel.  Thanks Gary!!

Remember, the true treasure is the ability to get outdoors and enjoy your friendship with others that also enjoy this hobby.  

God Bless,
