Where Are The Best Places To Go Metal Detecting For Gold?
What sort of places do professional metal detectors or prospectors look for gold?
In a stream gold will accumulate where the water is slowest, such as on the downstream side of a rock, or where sand collects in a bend. Gold can be found in dry streambeds using similar thinking.
I think most people look in slow moving streams. The gold sinks to the bottom into the sandy river bottom. I wonder if a crowded beach or a busy park would be a good place for a metal detector. People are bound to lose stuff.
If I had a metal detector I would take it everywhere I went.. no one would know it would be on until it reacted. What a great motivation to take walks and explore canyons and public properties (so you don't get cited).
Here in England, natural gold is hard to come by but beaches are a good bet, especially those packed in summer. You will need a certain kind of metal detector for the wet, salt sand but beach metal detecting can be fun and very lucrative.
