Costa Rica Gold Prospecting
I have purchased some property in the mountains of Costa Rica's central pacific coast. Looking at an old map of the area, I found that one of the streams on my finca is named Minas Ora (good sign). I asked around and apparently many years ago, there were a couple of Ticos working a mine somewhere on the upper part of my place. Could be real because the story talks about some Gold and not fabulous wealth. This year I am going to do some prospecting. I have a metal detector, gold pan and turkey baster.
I have been hunting gems for a few years but the gold is a new thing. I'm open to suggestions.
Stan's response: I would recommend signing up for my free gold prospecting course found at www.StanGrist.com (in the pop up window). After that, practice panning with 10 bb's (from a bb gun) in sand and gravel. When you can finish the pan in less than 5 minutes and recover all 10 bb's, you are ready to go prospecting on your river according to what you learn in my free course. Please let me know how it goes. You may be on to something good!
