djui5 Posted August 3, 2006 Report Share Posted August 3, 2006 Hey all,I'm new here (and on other forums under the same screename), and am looking for information about the old days of gold hunting, before metal detectors.How did they find gold back then? Did they just follow others who had found out? How did the "initial" discoveries happen? What did they do when they would stumble across a nugget somewhere? Did they just search for quartz outcroppings? I don't have a metal detector, and really want to get into hunting for gold the way the old prospectors did it, in the 1800's and earlier I have been directed to some great books, so I'll be reading those, but wanted to get some first hand info if I could.Thanks in advance for your time.
