Ganes Creek 7 oz. Gold Nugget


Recommended Posts

He was yelling so loud I thought a bear had him.Then he threw it at me and it landed at my feet. Dave

Great story, that experience sounds like the second best thing to finding it yourself

Hey Dave,

What a great find. When I was at Ganes Creek, the first day I arrived I met a guy from Leadville, CO. He was at Ganes a week before our group arrived. He was excited to meet me and thought I might have some tips for the area. Heck, it was my first time on the ground, if anything I would learn from him. :) His first week he didn't find a single piece of gold, but the first day of the second week, BAM!!

He scored a nice 16+ ouncer and not far from it another 2+ ouncer. After these two finds, the entire crew spent several days in the area without another find being made in that general area.

Here is a picture of the guy.

Hey Roger,

Ganes Creek is in Alaska, one of the best pay-to-mine locations for metal detectorist looking for big gold. Here is their website, I believe this is the last season for anyone to give it a try.

Hope this helps a bit,
