Hi AuHunterGreat to see you wish to continue with your interests back east.If you follow the geological structuring on your mapping (even topos will show a lot), you will find good geology extending from Madoc eastward in an arch, going through the Kaladar/Northbrooke region and up Hwy 41 as high as Kashwakamak Lake (Mazinaw Lake area), and extending further eastward through Lavant Station above Sharbot Lake and into the hills of Lanark. That whole region has gold and silver, with silver the more predominant. I'm not quite sure where you might find reasonable placer unless in some of the creeks up around the Kashawacmack/Mississaugagon area. Good geology also extends further northward, into the Bancroft area. Bancroft is well renowned for varied gemstones, including Soladite. I also hear there is supposed to be some (possibly of emerald quality) beryl... probably in that Bancroft belt somewhere. I wouldn't hesitate to do a little research on the Haliberton to Gravenhurst area.If down in the Kaladar/Northbrooke/Cloyne to Sharbot Lake area, keep a sharp eye out for ruby silver. Native silver is also known to the areas. As well as gold in quartz. In days of old they used to do a lot of mica mining, and the old mine shafts and adits are many.... so exercise caution as to where you make your steps. If down to Kingston, do not pass up the opportunity to drop over to Miller Hall at Queen's University (the geology library and, geology museum). Information is unlimited and, the museum has a fabulous display of rocks types, ore, crystals, meteorite samples and you name it. A place you could get lost in for many hours.If I, I would place more focus on hardrock and gemstones, over placer.Hope some of this may prove of some help. All the best in your move and back-east life. LarryHi Larry,Are you still active on this site?Gord
