This is my opinion only and does not constitute advice of any type.
Gold miners typically head for mountains containing rocks and streams. They usually follow the rivers upstream sampling for gold all the way. The best way to start looking for gold is with a metal detector. When gold is found we look at the ravines or gullies on the sides of the river (always moving uphill) to follow the gold to its source, “The Mother Lode” Since erosion causes gold to travel down hillsides into creeks where it sinks and stays put until you find it. The Indians had a much simpler method, they worshipped their Thunder God. They would see where lightning strikes the ground scorching it black since gold is a superconductor making an excellent ground for lightning strikes. Gold is often found where sulfide minerals (like iron pyrite) have decomposed or oxidized in quartz veins. Volcanoes are typically excellent places to look for gold. #ApacheThunderGod
