Prospectors Season 3
Good prospecting video:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
The traditional methods of prospecting involved combing through the countryside, often through creek beds and along ridgelines and hilltops, often on hands and knees looking for signs of mineralisation in the outcrop. In the case of gold, all streams in an area would be panned at the appropriate trap sites looking for a show of ‘colour’ or gold in the river trail.
Once a small occurrence or show was found, it was then necessary to intensively work the area with pick and shovel, and often via the addition of some simple machinery such as a sluice box, races and winnows, to work the loose soil and rock looking for the appropriate materials (in this case, gold). For most base metal shows, the rock would have been mined by hand and crushed on site, the ore separated from the gangue by hand. Read more
Chinese Yuan to Replace USD as Reserve Currency
Peter Schiff on RT Boom Bust 11/17/2015:
Not many people understand the TRUTH. it not their fault because our education system is designed to keep this in the dark ….but the truth of the matter is the dollar is only 44 years old …. 1933 ended classical gold standard 1971 ended the Brenton woods system ( 40%) gold backing ….I do feel people are starting to wake up now a days …. yes hold on to your gold/silver the price is low because they are suppressing it big time . ..wonder how long that can last though.

Personally I have sold off all my ETFs denominated in paper promises that the gold is there, or can be located and delivered. For a small investor, or just an average citizen trying to protect what little of their real world assets remain holding physical gold seems like a good bet.
I am aware of all the powerful arguments why that is not a good idea, but I remain committed and resolute to the concept that having something of marginal value that is universally accepted as a medium of exchange makes sense. If I am wrong my children will at least enjoy the beautiful trinkets with portraits of kings that have been around for five thousand years. Read more
Idaho Gold Nugget Specimens
On Labor day weekend, Gus from Idaho, using a Minelab gold metal detector made a discovery of some fantastic gold nugget specimens. Here is what Gus said:
Dad and I have just been given permission to hunt some exclusive private claims. The ground in this area is awesome! It has been worked over by the old timers, but we did not see 1 dig hole, or any evidence of detecting the whole 2 days we were there.
It rained until noon the first day we were there, and then the mosquitoes were out for blood. There are several square miles of claims that we have the privilege of choosing from. We started out in a small good looking draw that has sluice-tailing piles all the way down it, as many of the draws in this area do. Read more
Arizona gold nugget prospecting
Gold mining in Arizona reportedly began in 1774 when Spanish priest Manuel Lopez directed Papago Indians to wash gold from gravel on the flanks of the Quijotoa Mountains, Pima County. Gold mining continued there until 1849, when the Mexican miners were lured away by the California Gold Rush.
From the latest weather forecast it seems certain that Southern California and Arizona is in for major rains this winter. If you’re into gold prospecting, you should keep in mind that thunderstorms and major rain in the desert areas moves a lot of dirt. So, now gold nuggets that may have been buried down eight or 10 inches in the ground could be much closer to the surface after dry washes fill with water and a lot of topsoil is moved downstream.

Gold Nugget Sluicing Near Phoenix Arizona
Secret location outside Phoenix Arizona for getting small gold nuggets from a seasonal stream with a small sluice.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Using a sluice box to extract gold from placer deposits has long been a very common practice in prospecting and small-scale mining. A sluice box is essentially a man made channel with riffles set in the bottom. The riffles are designed to create dead zones in the current to allow gold to drop out of suspension. The box is placed in the stream to channel water flow. Gold-bearing material is placed at the top of the box. The material is carried by the current through the volt where gold and other dense material settles out behind the riffles. Less dense material flows out of the box as tailings. Read more
Modern Gold Mine
Shows the process of how gold is mined and how the process has changed over the past 150 years.
Good information and look at an active modern gold mine. Gold mining has changed dramatically over the last 150 years! Today, much of the gold that is mined is microscopic and so not visually apparent to the naked eye. Read more
Arizona Gold prospecting
Filmed in Congress Arizona. This version just shows Tony catching some snakes, (two at once) along with a recap of others animals that we caught earlier. Scorpions, Tarantula’s, etc. A final Tally at the end of the video to see if we did better of with the gold we found, or with the animals we caught. Please note that all animals were released right after filming.

Peter Schiff the Greek collapse
Financial analyst and author Peter Schiff discusses the Greek collapse, Puerto Rico’s faltering economy and how America’s monetary policies may one day put us on the same path.
Peter is always on point he makes good sense America’s economy is a big bubble waiting to implode. His analysis and knowledge is impeccable. We need more people like him in government
If the Socialist-Democrats keep holding to power, we will become a third world country like Greece. We need to hire someone who will bring jobs back from China and create wealth. We also need to protect our borders form illegals that are costing jobs and increasing our national debt. Read more
Germany Wants Gold Back
Why does Germany want it’s gold back from the Federal Reserve in New York?
The Germans actually wanted to inspect their gold at the FED a few years back, but was declined access. I wonder why? Some people say its because the gold there are actually lower quality than what they put in there in the first place. I do think Max Kaiser is right, the FED might have sold it to India or China, or they simply want to have their hands on the gold themselves. If the dollar is to collapse or the world economy is to collapse, the nations with the most gold comes out as the winner. Read more
