The Prospector’s Field Manual

In this manual I cover the 5 stages of my gold finding process.
I go briefly through everything about systematic gold prospecting, from site research to gold mining.  It is important to note that success in prospecting is in the details.  Each of these topics details out examples of my five stag gold finding process.  The more you understand these details the easier it is to find gold.

Mine Or Move On Report

Mine or move on takes paystreak sample mapping and your site information you collected during your site survey and assembles it into a picture of how you can recover gold efficiently from your site. When that recovery drops below a certain threshold you can move on to the next location. You can focus on the spots that produce.

Sampling For Gold Report

This tells you about the process of sampling to understand exactly how much gold you’re finding per unit volume in your sample hole. This is a key metric for you to get your head around when you’re looking at your gold site.

How To Find A Paystreak Report

Do you want to know how to use your sample holes to figure out where more gold is? The gold samples will only tell you what’s happening in one spot, but put enough of them together and you can map out a paystreak. This methodical trailing of the gold paystreak makes the difference between the men and the boys when it comes to successful gold recovery.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re using a hand sluice in a stream bed or you are using a giant power sluice with a full trommel wash plant setup, usage and teardown pretty much follows the same concepts. The speeds of flow, recovery & wash processes and so forth will vary.
