NYT -- After Calif. heavy rains / good news for amateur gold prospectors .......................................

archive.is

excerpts :

<<<<< California’s prodigious winter rainfall blasted torrents of water through mountain streams and rivers. >>>>>

<<<<< the rushing waters are detaching and carrying gold deposits along the way. >>>>>

<<<<< The big chunks of the easy-to-find gold that had been lolling around in rivers for millenniums were gone after the first years of the Gold Rush, and Marshall himself died penniless. But miners resorted to spraying powerful jets of water onto hillsides and sorting through what flowed down, leaving giant piles of mining residue still visible today.

That kind of extraction is now heavily restricted in California, yet gold seekers say the recent battering of successive winter storms has produced a similar effect. >>>>>



In just 20 minutes of rooting around the creek bed, Albert Fausel had found about $100 worth of gold.



Small flecks of gold from a flooded area of the Cosumnes River, where Mr. Dayton had been looking for gold.
