This video deals with the core subject of our hunt – Just what is gold?
It is important to understand the nature of our golden prey. To understand gold better I will look at 3 major areas that define the nature of gold.
These 3 areas about gold and its nature are:
- Gold’s properties (physical, chemical, etc.)
- The value of gold (as in spot price $/oz over time)
- Then there’s the true value of gold (see the video to find out what this is…)
Take a look at the answer to – “What is Gold?”
I mention the “Gold Prospectors Handbook” – by, Jack Black – I’ll be referring to it more as we continue the gold prospecting video series. If you want an indicator of prospecting value; my copy’s all dog eared, scribbled in and coffee stained after years and years of service…
This book is the reference for many gold prospectors. It not only answers what is gold, but it dives into detail about what you need to find it too.
As seen in and recommended in this video by Prospector Jess.
