Gravels and gold

Post by farm boy on Fri 29 Aug 2014, 9:18 pm

Hi all. I'm curious to know what people mean when they say "I dug down and found gold among the gravels". Is this referring to some sort of old creek bed accumulation so might contain water worn rocks etc? Is this "gravel" easily recognisable. I've pulled some nuggets in wa, mostly coolgardie area but can't say I've seen gravels when digging but maybe I wasn't looking hard enough cheers fb

Morning Farm Boy,
You can read about it here under "Alluvial Gold", part way down the page;
