    Been finding in Pacific Missouri rocks from ancient days

    Thanks for the great info. By the way, it is pronounced Fred/erick/town, not Fred/erickS/town. No ‘S’, whatsoever, in the spelling.

    The date on the enstien mine was 10/17/1901

    Jesuit Core of engineers have dammed all the mines up lake of the Ozarks Truman lake and every lake in Missouri mines flooded to hide to be saved for later

    Southeast Missouri is AWESOME for rockhounding. Thatโ€™s why I started my channel ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Great info! Iโ€™d love to find some gold but Iโ€™ll settle for amethyst

    When people in Missouri find gold, they don’t talk about it… we don’t trust government here…

  9. Cabe on August 8, 2022 at 8:31 am

    There’s very very strong evidence of lost Spanish gold mines in the vacinity of springfield. Dig deep for research. You’ll see

  10. alan raleigh on August 8, 2022 at 8:34 am

    North fabius river has some gold

  11. Sky blue eyes on August 8, 2022 at 8:36 am

    Thanks so much. Live in missouri, south east and found weird rock I found out was called serpentine and went back when I found out what it was and found three large handfuls of a solid bright yellow soft rock that looks glittery in the sun but there’s so much quartz everywhere I’m not sure it’s real gold. I don’t know but I’m gonna find out. We have have several floods this spring and I live on a dead end gravel road with three branches of creeks on our 2500 acre property. These floods washed this stuff in. However I know exactly where the huge artesian well that is the mouth of the creek. Thank you thank you

    From what I’ve read from pretty thorough and varied resources over a couple of years is that most prospectable/placer gold in Missouri is going to be alluvial glacial gold in the northern third of the state. It’s fairly easy to find some of the streams known to contain some gold with a simple Google search (access and exactly Where are another thing) and the thinking is that it’s pretty likely most of the streams up there, particularly near or with some connection to the Missouri River will contain some gold. Widely disseminated, and very fine flour gold which, if you’re panning, will require some care and skill. That’s all I know/care to divulge. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Does anyone know if Texas County Missouri has good potential for silver or copper? Thanks

  14. DrNooby Noob on August 8, 2022 at 8:37 am

    so do you just go to the county courthouse, go to the land/title counter, point your finger on a map and say who owns this?

  15. Deanne kliene on August 8, 2022 at 8:40 am

    I lived on iron mountain lake…..the names around there tell u where it is….lol

  16. Jason Voorhees on August 8, 2022 at 8:40 am

    Just starting to prospect myself, live in midwest/western Mo. any tips or advice you can give would be amazing

  17. Stephanie Kathcart on August 8, 2022 at 8:46 am

    What if Pilot Knobs fort is a ghost volcanoes?

  18. Fungi Forge on August 8, 2022 at 8:47 am

    I just found this. Missouri actually has a lot of potential for gold. Most people don’t realize but Missouri a few million years ago was very volcanic. There was a massive lava lake that went from West Central over to St Louis then up to about Chicago. In the late 40s my granddad drilled wells and the assay always had trace gold in the west Central area. In the mid to late 1800s there was several gold and silver mines that opened also in the same area.

  19. Kevin honey on August 8, 2022 at 8:47 am

    Jeff if you find an occurrence of Tungsten,would it be a good place to check for gold?

  20. Julee Tinsley on August 8, 2022 at 8:49 am

    limestone and granite with some marble is most prevalent in washington iron st francis and madison counties

  21. Prospector Jess on August 8, 2022 at 8:49 am

    See where to start finding gold, silver and copper in the state of Missouri. Simply start where gold was found before watch this: https://SourdoughMiner.com/ggm/

  22. PSYCH๐Ÿšซ-NUT on August 8, 2022 at 8:50 am

    How can I contact you personally?

  23. MoRockHound on August 8, 2022 at 8:52 am

    There are many small claims in this region, which I currently live in.
    Lead is the primary mineral mined in the region, second is copper.
    The lead and zinc are primarily found in deep dolomite beds.
    Doe run mining company has a very large network of mines and claims in the region.

    Many of the unknown mines I would say are former workings from back in the day. Pre 1920.
    Many lost to time and growth.
    Many tales of lost silver mines from the Spanish and copper from settlers.
    Thanks for this video, I am curious about prospecting in the region and your video has been a great help

  24. Jamie Fowler on August 8, 2022 at 8:54 am

    There is also small glacial gold on North side of Kc.

  25. Jon Ryan on August 8, 2022 at 8:55 am

    Love watching all your videos and the history of different states that contains the original origins of gold ore bodies. I generally prospect in the state of Ohio and southward. Thanks jess

  26. ConsideringOrthodoxy on August 8, 2022 at 8:55 am

    Einstein mine is in a park and gated off. Trail to it.

  27. Jay Spacely on August 8, 2022 at 8:56 am

  32. RadRelics on August 8, 2022 at 9:06 am

    The mines here are old old

  33. TheJsmashey1984 on August 8, 2022 at 9:07 am

    I’m going to check the river that runs against our farm this spring.

  34. RadRelics on August 8, 2022 at 9:07 am

    Madison County Missouri here I want to pan for gold. The silvermines are about 6 miles from my house thats where the Koch Shaft is. I was told the gold is very deep here though and it wasnt worth digging but I have my doubts.

  35. Dellenite on August 8, 2022 at 9:07 am

    There are REEs in MO, not much gold unless you go to Moberly and pan glacial till

  36. Troy Dean on August 8, 2022 at 9:12 am

  37. Danny Boy 888 on August 8, 2022 at 9:13 am

  38. Johnny Toy on August 8, 2022 at 9:14 am

    How do you find that map for Middle Tennessee

  39. Jon Ryan on August 8, 2022 at 9:14 am

    Still trying to locate areas in Ohio where gold would be more likely found for prospecting.

  40. Bill Hasha on August 8, 2022 at 9:16 am

    Great information. I live in Springfield MO and I think Iโ€™ll do a little prospecting.
