    I use a blue bowl and then use a black sand magnet that I bought. The black sand magnet works great especially when I am trying to separate black sand and fine gold. I live in Springfield, VA and I am looking for great spots to prospect, even a friend to prospect with. Trying to get my wife interested in prospecting, but she has no interest for now.

    Thanks! I actually do half and half bags. 12/14 and 20/22 mesh. Gold in every bag!

    I was wondering if your dredging, highbanking or just hand digging? It appears you have a fairly good spot here in VA.

    have you tried using a concentrator like the bucket sluice from California sluice box company

    you can mash out (squash the Pyrite out) in the pan

    if you pan it right you wont have pyrite with your gold

    I just hand dig and always hit crevices. I go in Louisa a lot but im gonna need to check out this club!

    nice looking gold. How far down are you classifying your cons for sale?

    To help answer your ? on how separate gold from pyrite it just takes time and practice on swirling the pan. Also i noticed only a little bit of water in your pan try adding just a bit more water. That should help the pyrite roll away from the gold and black sand a bit easier. Hope this helps. I pan for gold in northern VA near goldvein. There is a club at Monroe park that meets the first Saturday of every month if you would like come it is open to public. My name is Ryan

    I read that Virginia was the gold state before California.
