Gold On Winter Time Oregon Beaches

by William Douglas
(Gold Beach,Oregon)


The Oregon beach front from Seven Devils area to the north to the Chetco area to the south can be very good gold recovery areas.

I live in Gold Beach ( get it?) and spend the winter months on the beach with a sluice box, shovel and bucket.

A typical day of working 4 hours can produce a gram+ of flour gold. It is a healthy recreational activity with very little cost associated with it. Of course, getting some gold in the process helps.

Many times agate hunters approach me and want to know what I am doing and when I explain, they comment they thought all the gold had been removed by the old timers. Then I show them how to recover this elusive gold in the beach sands.
