The Southern Jungle - Gold Dredging

July 10, 2012

We have been in the southern Ecuadorian jungle for the last 5 days. I am in search of a new commercial alluvial deposit to work on. It has been raining a lot and all of the rivers are quite high.

Yesterday, we watched a gold dredge work for a couple of hours on a small stream. The two young guys running the 4" dredge recovered 9 grams of sizable, flat flakes. I'll be posting some photos and video for you to see soon.
