Dude, I just saw those pics you had earlier in the thread of the gold you found. An hour and a half? 3 hours of sampling? Pan only? That's amazing, you're really onto something. I'm extremely jealous you've found such a rich stream. Its taken me like 8 trips so far to equal about what you have, probably not even that much lol. Can't wait to see what you come up with after a full day of sluicing.

Like everyone else already said, keep it a secret at all costs!

I just read an article from a 2004 edition of ICMJ about gold mining in Serbia. Very interesting and shows much potential. Hope you do well.

Good to hear everything is going your way Sloba.....after you do a lot of testing and experimenting with your sluice you
will find some good gold...

So glad to hear that the sluice is working. That 20+ year old crevice tool has a magical power to find and recover gold. It was very lucky for me, hope it work as well for you.

Opposite here in Arizona, creeks are dry and no rain in the forecast for weeks.... Not enough water most places to even use a sluice or small dredge.

Don't think too much, you'll create a problem that wasn't even there in the first place.

Narkoza, I am planning a trip next year to Novi Sad and will be visiting Majdanpek. My cousin has an apartment which I can use anytime I want. I am looking forward to doing some panning and exploring the area and learning about the history. If you can find one of those traditional pans za ispiranje zlata...made from wood I would love one for my collection. Hold it for me and I will buy it from you. Hope your having good luck with the gold. From your photos of the gold you have found, it appears you are in a good location..never give up, its there !

Sloba here in Brasil where I live it never snows but November-April we have a lot of rain....it has

slowed down a lot now....I drove about 35 km this morning to some old areas that I haven't been

to for 12 years....their over grown with weeds and small trees so much it's impossible to use a

detector....

At first I went to two small streams that normally have only a trickle of water this time of year to use

my water proof coil with my GPX4000 but the water was much to deep....another month and there

will be little water....so you and I both have to wait it out with "mother nature"....

Sloba,

Do you have a general idea as to how deep it is buried? Just curious. Hope you find it!

Sloba I think the coins are very shallow because most tractors don't go deeper than about 6 inches when

cultivating for crops....I think the Gold Bug DP with the 11" DD coil would do very well finding other coins

still there that may be a little deeper.....if you get good weather so you can use your sluice you won't have

to wait for a year to buy the Gold Bug....
