RESIDUAL PLACERS
« on: December 23, 2008, 12:36:59 AM »
Some think RESIDUAL PLACERS are not prov-en an some think they're for real....what do you think??? The area I prospect has every mode of gold ya can think of..........this year I have uncovered A area that I'm thinking is A residual deposit.......I talked to some who think that this type of deposit is B.S.....but if A guy can use chemicals to extract gold why can't nature do the same.......I'm sure it's true but I thought it be A bit of fun.. <-thinking->

I definetly think residual placers are real. I have not foound one myself, but read of many instances where they have been found. For those who do not know, a residual placer forms right over and around a vien. they usually form best in areas of gently slope, so that as the gold weathers out of the vein, it is not tranported away, but settles down around the weathering vein. They are also called seam diggings.
Cannot find if you do not look!

Any thought on nugget forming from residual deposits???..........I'm thinking of this in my area........A residual deposit forming around A gold vein an in the history of time water action an landsliding has moved it..........one finds very coarse golds in A rotten bedrock clay with very little sign of quartz..... <-thinking->but this hasn't moved vary far....sharp gold with very small quartz.........I think this bedrock was rotten by chemicals in the ground an the quartz takes A bit longer to break down an the gold was leeched out an re-formed an then moved or slide down.........basically the rock isn't matching the gold.. ^#!

From what I have read, gold can be dissolved and reconcentrated near the surface at low temperature.
