Finding treasure in my backyard

So I have learned a lot and I have almost a gram of pure gold. I'm completely excited and can't wait to buy a new battery for my miners wheel and get more. I figure if I can learn to do it in dirt then I will move to creeks where I know gold is. This isn't what I do for a living,but as a hobby that can pay you back why not right? I have only been mining like 2 weeks now and I'm sure I'm learning as I go. Treasure hunting is a hobby,although I might have some pirate blood in me from the rush of the gold. Bed rock gold here I come.

How do you mine for gold where you live? I wouldn't mind finding some gold myself.

What area do you live in ? First off small research, look up what resources as in minerals can be found in your state.2nd buy a gold pan it's good to start there. Dig a hole if any research leads there and pan it first. Quartz rock can be associated with gold with a list of other minerals and even the fools gold can actually have real gold on it there is a few different processes once you get enough to actually make a nice small amount of money I definitely suggest smelting, and I also know how to remove gold out of old phones and such with basic household stuff so there is actually a lot more gold than people realize,especially in creeks and oceans.

Good hobby If you have a backyard or lawn, you can sow some plants, and you will get Green Gold.
