Gold Prospectin’

I’m talking to my very nice Construction worker today and we’re having a lot of fun. He told me that he does prospecting on the weekend. That is Gold Prospecting. I love it. My husband and I need a hobby. I’m all in!

So, I think we need to buy a metal detector, some Sluicing buckets, gloves, and I’ll have to start doing my investigative homework. Oh my! I’m so excited.

I’ve always watched those Treasure Shows on cable and been so interested,  I’m ready to go live the dream. Now, what to do, that is the question.

Any one with knowledge I need please feel free to pass it on. I’m going to have to go Google it now, going searching for info…..

    Hi Evie,

    I have a friend that has a metal detector here in NYC and he had to get a license for it. He also mentioned to me that if he finds anything of a certain value on a beach in NYC he’s supposed to turn it in to some agency for evaluation and they can possibly keep the item. Not cool. So check the laws and regulations carefully where you live.

      Are you serious? God there are laws & regulations on everything…pulleasee…I don’t think that’s true here in AZ but I will check. Bastards….don’t they have enough taxes, etc. Thanks, Evie

    I didn’t know there were still gold prospectors out there. Wonders never cease.

    But your metal detecting thing is not a bad idea. I remember reading an article a few months ago about a man who decided to rent a detector to see if he could find scrap metal on his small farm somewhere in England. Instead, he uncovered an entire underground city–one of the most meaningful archaeological findings of our lifetime. So. You just never know!

    Thanks so much for stopping by 36×37 on Thursday. You have a fun blog here…I look forward to reading more from you!


  3. Evie, I am a gold prospector and I have a blog about gold prospecting, I haven’t used a metal detector yet to find gold. I mostly pan, sluice dredge and high bank, I am located on the East coast,so most of my prospecting is done in rivers. But in AZ a metal detector is ideal in locating gold, and there is a lot of gold to be found in AZ. There are specific metal detectors for locating gold and that is what you would want to get. There are rules and regulations set forth by the state on gold prospecting so be aware of them so you don’t get a fine. Gold prospecting is a fun and rewarding hobbie I hope you give it a try and good luck.

      Hey Jack…Thanks for reading and replying…very interesting….perhaps someday my husband and I will actually take it up as a hobby! By the way what do you think of the guys on on Gold Rush…I get so aggravated at their shenanigans! Evie

    Jack….We watch it all the time…it is very entertaining and I guess the drama and the “dumbness” or stupid mistakes are all part of the act for TV? Or At least I hope so….it sure does get your blood up and make you want to get out there on the hunt though! We have even checked out Bering Sea Gold now….that’s interesting it’s about the people who actually dive in the Bering sea hunting for GOLD!
    Anyway good luck to you on your endeavors and I hope you find gold….Evie PS My biggest dream and pursuit may be when I get my beach home and use a metal detector! Ha, ha!
