One of the things I like to do is to classify the ground that I am going to work in. By classifying it, first locate gravel which may contain gold. And one of the best things to do is to have a classifier to eliminate all of the larger rocks. The best place to look is in obvious gold producing creeks, streams, and rivers. I try to find a gravel deposit that is out of the water in a sand bar, behind a large rock, or an area of gravel exposed by errosion in the side of a body of water. Gold travels the path of least resistance, usually on the inside bends of moving bodies of water. Now being from New England one of the only places local is Vermont, and to increase your odds to find gold, classifying your material is the way to go. If you don't do this your odds will decrease dramatically.
