Another New comer to this site.

Hi, I am the polywog from Kamloops. My wife and I have been metal detecting for the past 10 years.  We are very new to gold prospecting.  2 years ago we started prospecting and love it.  If anyone has information to share that might help with our new hobby we would appreciate it.

Welcome Polywog,
I hope you will enjoy this place and pick up some good hints for your hobby.
What methods are you using, nugget detecting?

I'm looking forward to seeing some of your finds.

Gold prospecting is all about persistence, just keep at it and sooner or later you'll find some nice nuggets! Keep in mind, that in an area that was glaciated, you can find good gold ANYWHERE. Your more likely to find good gold if you can get down to the bedrock, gold is often trapped in cracks and crevices and other rough places in the bedrock. Thanks to the glaciers, I've even metal detected a few of your nice "Canadian" nuggets down here in Indiana. Good luck up there!
