    Stop saying Nevada like it’s a gay bar. We locals dont say Nevhada…

  2. Carl Miller on August 9, 2022 at 5:26 pm

    How could you use this info for a fair area to go and use a metal detector? Obviously looking for stuff close to the surface.. already know about rye patch, but how do you know where would be a good area to go?

  3. Michael Neeley on August 9, 2022 at 5:26 pm

    Will you do utah next?

  4. Greg Johnson on August 9, 2022 at 5:28 pm

    What interactive map are you using?

    I just found this video from a friend

  6. Matt&Vicki's Travels on August 9, 2022 at 5:31 pm

    Good info

  7. Jackie on August 9, 2022 at 5:33 pm

    Neh-VAAAA-dah, not Neh-vahhhh-da. Thank you for your informative video, though. My backyard is a, no pun intended, gold mine 🙂

  8. Dennie Linch on August 9, 2022 at 5:33 pm

    Someone please please shoot me this guy is about as entertaining as watching congress in action or watching paint dry.. no educational purposes at all I’d rather listen to 40 hrs of some seminar that was pointless why bother dude give it up please spare everyone for reals!!!!!!

  9. Lincoln Fong on August 9, 2022 at 5:35 pm

    surprise !! looks like the entire state is claimed and being mined, offering good prospecting sampling and fun trips ~ caveat, exercise caution around ravine geography that offer big danger from flash floods ~

    In 2015, Nevada produced 73% of the total gold produced in the United States. Unfortunately most of that gold is Carlin style – micron. I live in and grew up in Vegas (which is not overrated – Reno people just love to hate Vegas) I go out into the desert to look for gold at old mines and use these maps too. I think those mines come up on the map because gold is usually secondary, if not primarily on many, many old mines out there – and there’s a million old mines out there too. Whole bunch of old Uranium mines out there to in Southern Nevada – thank you for your vids

    You are so bloody ignorant. You don’t know Basic nevada geology god I wish people like yourself would just learn to keep your mouth closed when you don’t know what your talking about.

  12. chris Valenzuela on August 9, 2022 at 5:40 pm

    Hey PJ im a new sub. Me and my family are moving to battle mountain from ohio and I’m planning on prospecting for a part time living I know it’s not easy lol I’ve been over by south lake Tahoe at my cousins claim on the Carson U have great content very informative your time is appreciated thank you

  13. Mike Marshall on August 9, 2022 at 5:45 pm

    Would you do an episode on Montana? Thank you for sharing your wisdom.

  14. Philip Callicoat on August 9, 2022 at 5:48 pm

    All the gold producing land and the surrounding areas for miles around have been claimed by the big companies…Period.

  15. Robert Monger the on August 9, 2022 at 5:48 pm

    Your basin and range is exactly backwards. Nevada is being stretched apart. I’d show you where the extension faults are-but they’re plainly marked so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding them–if you were to look. Hint: Look for the gold mines!

  16. Joseph Newman on August 9, 2022 at 5:52 pm

    Howdy there prospector jess! I mainly like to dig and run a sluice box! I travel quite a bit between California and north Idaho! Any river spots or creeks you may know about or have always wanted to try a spot lmk and I will try to get by there and sample with pan and sluice! When I dig , I dig! And after I try a spot you may mention I’ll get back to you and report my finds! Thanks for the videos! Joe gold

  17. jason brock on August 9, 2022 at 5:52 pm

    I live in Las Vegas, I would like to buy a metal detector and look for some gold for fun.
    How am I able to know where I am legally allowed to metal detect?
    I see people on youtube metal detecting, but I don’t want to get in any trouble.
    Please, with your expertise, would you be able to shed some light on this topic?

  18. Michael Melling on August 9, 2022 at 5:54 pm

    Thanks for making this video, Sir!

  19. Walter Sallani on August 9, 2022 at 5:54 pm

    Do you have ever cover Arizona. Since living by Colorado river

  20. Kiteh Kawasaki on August 9, 2022 at 5:55 pm

    Vegas is SO over-rated. Reno-Carson has it all without the hustle. I dig ur videos Jess-san.

  21. April Nieto on August 9, 2022 at 5:56 pm

    I have a patented lode gold mine in the spring valley mining district near Lovelock NV coming soon on the market. This is great. My owner mentioned pressure also from the Arctic makes Nevada so special right now.

  22. LeavemWet on August 9, 2022 at 5:57 pm

    Hiw do you find this map?

  23. Nevada Gold Trommel Journal on August 9, 2022 at 5:58 pm

    Good gold video,

  24. Anthony Benedetto on August 9, 2022 at 5:59 pm

    It is not uncommon to find gold associated with cinnabar which is mercury ore, and mercury is found in hot springs deposits as is gold. And please learn how to pronounce Nevada, we nevadans can get very irritated when foreigners such as yourself mispronounce Nevada. Also you might want to bone up on your geology and mineralogy if you’re going to make youtube presentations such as this.

  26. Phillip Jacobson on August 9, 2022 at 6:01 pm

    Is gold found in veins with cinnabar?
    How rare is this type of find?
    Did old miners hide there gold veins from government by claiming cinnabar mines yet were digging gold and smelting in Canada or Mexico
    How often has gold and uranium Ben found in vein side by side?

  27. RikuSpirit on August 9, 2022 at 6:05 pm

    Is it legal to do gold panning on public lands? I’ve been interested in doing it just for fun but I don’t want a fine.

  28. Travis Bristow on August 9, 2022 at 6:05 pm

    is there any gold in the truckee river near Reno? if possible can you show the relationship between data points of gold and residential populations.. I’m brand new to it, really appreciate the content 🙂

  29. Nevada Gold Trommel Journal on August 9, 2022 at 6:05 pm

    Maybe you could explain Nevada’s great basin to us if you know anything about the Reconcentration of secondary Gold bearing alluvial gravel That occurred during the draining of lake Bonneville Chris Ralph didn’t seem to know what I was talking about do you

  30. Ramsen Albazi on August 9, 2022 at 6:07 pm

    So I paid $24 for the USGS gold maps and video help. How do you access this information? Or is my $24 gone?

  31. Walter Sallani on August 9, 2022 at 6:10 pm

    Many times there is gold in sand and gravel pits gold is found if in gold bearing areas. Kim know few sand and gravel pits washings use of dredge back home in the black hill of South Dakota. Hebe worked other areas also

  32. The Wizard of Croagz on August 9, 2022 at 6:10 pm

    If Nevada was a country, it’d be the 4th largest gold producing country in the world. Carlin

  33. Dogs Are the Best on August 9, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    Interesting video. If I were to go prospecting at any of those mines, how do I know which ones I need permission for? Who do you contact?

  34. Bryan Watrous on August 9, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    Would you mind making another video on Nevada. I live here in Carson city. Just wondering why there is more micron gold than coarse gold? And what type of mining would you recommend for the comstock lode area?

  35. jeff bybee on August 9, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    Dear Mr Jess. I enjoy your videos and have learned a good but from you but every once and a while you geologic history is flat wrong. Example on the baison and range they are the result of crystal extension. Resulting in normal faults is they slope toward the Groban or down droped block. And the deeper they go the flatter they get. In the idaho one you had the Hotspot moving east when infant its the north American plate is moving west. The pacific plate is moving north west and subducting under Alaska and Japan. One other note I have liked the term Isenberg for the horsts of the great baison. German for island mountians. Some are bounded on one side usually the west by a fault the block of rock may then tilt to the east and the lower part buryed by sediments filling the Groban. The Wasatch fault is west and thus the east side dips gently just as the serria nevada have the fault on the east side and dip west to the central valley at an adverage of 2 foot per mile. One last note there was a down warp weakness going east and west through the uinta mountians and through western Utah. The ocean may not have been hugely deep but as sediment collected it sank attracting more sediments till iirc over 30,000 feet had colected. Latter magma exploited the weak spot in the crust and injected granite forcing up the sedimentary layers that have eroaded away so that driving north from vernal the higher you climb the older the rocks are as the magma cooled hot mineralized waters flowed through the limestone layers depositing gold at park city and copper at Bingham canyon. These lackolithic mountians were originally described by Gilbert when he surveyed the henry mountians [ bromide baison on top of st mary?] ThaT you talked about. These blister mountians may or not have broken through to the surface or not but the material there today definitely cooled underground. Other blister mountians in the area include the abajo the la sal , Navajo mountian and also I think the sanjuans in Colorado. Best wishes to you. Thankyou for your vids

    Yo! We need you to do a video for Utah!! Lol
