JW, I live over near Christiansburg and I'm interested in doing some panning and prospecting.

I know there were some mines over near Riner and Pilot. What I dont know is where for sure to do some exploring and gold panning. I'd also like to meet up with someone who can help me distinguish the difference between a good and false sample. Everything I've put in a bit of acid has disolved. I'm still learning....


Has anyone had good success in our areas? Is it all flour gold around here or do we have stuff the equivalent of Contrary Creek pickers?

I'm still learning.... get a hold of me.

Hangfire.

Id very much like to get some feedback and maybe see some pictures of what other prospectors have managed to obtain from around Riner/Pilot areas if they will be kind enough to share.

Pretty Please?

Welcome to the forum there Hangfire .
The area you are talking about, is not in the Va. gold belt, but that doesn't mean there is no gold there .
I know there are a few prospects in SW Va., but I don't know of anyone here who prospects that area .
Sorry I can't help, but wish you good luck !

I live in Carroll county and been digging in a quartz vein here on the farm and finding some interesting stuff. Been aiming to put some pictures on here of it but can't figure out how to post pictures. Maybe soon. I am not far from Floyd or Patrick county.

I just moved here in Patrick county and am very interested in prospecting. Have been digging for arrow heads and artifacts for over a decade. I very rarely come back empty handed. I would like very much to have someone to prospect with. I've done some research and found that Virgina was actually the 3rd largest gold producing state in its prime. I have maps of old gold mine and claims locations that was registered in Virginia. Have panned a little in the creek below my house and may very well be on to something. Hope to hear from you soon.

I'm in the next county over from you. IF,... I read your post correctly you need to delete it !!!!.That's a LOT of gold with in such a small amount of material. There is only one creek in Patrick county that might hold that quantity.Good luck :)

You will have to ask a moderator to delete a post. You can edit a post. I edited the posts that I believe you are referring to.
