Looking for experienced prospector/s in Virginia that would like to teach me alittle bit. I have a small dredge 1"1/2. Panning kit and 2 sluices. Purchased some paydirt off ebay to pan at home, went up to Contrary Creek last weekend with the dredge but come up with nothing. Granted I didn't stray far from the bridge and it hadn't rained in a couple months there so water was extremely low. Did talk with a father and son out there looking for garnets. Would like to be a little closer to Roanoke if possible heard some stories about a few places having some color.
Edit: Forgot to add looked at claims in my area and doesn't seem like any available, GPS Coordinates not showing up
