  2. Does it say on the internet whether or not you can metal detect on these home sites?

  3. @orangedac i looked up the creek there was no gold history near by, you usually find gold where it has been found before by old timers, you find gold where you find it. its a backache looking for gold diggin between rocks to get the gravel, pan or sluice it out and find 2 specs of gold the size of a grain of salt.

  22. @treasurepirate1 you should detect the kinmount fair grounds then. I detect siteS between 1 and 45 miles from my house anything futher i go to in the winter when its not hot.

  23. cool radiator cap could be worth something and nice Indian head cent too, if that was here in Canada it would have been a large cent, Canada made large cents form 1858 too 1920 check out Locodigger’s channel he finds them at Kinmount fairgrounds 15- 20 minute drive from were i live. HH
