Ever wondered the effects of illegal mining on our environment? Well Alluvial mining is now the latest 'fashion' for the youth of Prestea and its surrounding communities. A group of journalists recently visited the area to witness on first hand the much talked about activities of 'galamsey' operators. The were kind enough to let us film them while they perform their task which fives them their daily bread. Take a look at the video.
Alluvial diamond mining remains the major source of Sierra Leone’s hard currency earnings accounting for nearly half of the country’s exports. Sierra Leone is renowned for the quality of its diamonds and for the recovery of some spectacularly large stones of very high value from its alluvial deposits.
In this video, I talk about Prospecting for Gold in a running creek. I talk about what to look for and demonstrate my methods of finding and extraction. Some of the best Gold in a creek can actually be some of the easiest to get to...you just need to know where to look. I would rather fill up 1 bucket with good amounts of Gold then 20 with poor amounts. It's all about economy for effort. You will see in this video how I find some tiny Gold Nuggets and lots of "Colour" in only 2 small crevices. Enjoy..Aussie. Soundtrack "A Long Cold" by Riot courtesy of the YouTube Audio Library
No copyrights infringement is intended, and it is acknowledged that the soundtrack on the video is by Depeche Mode's "Gold" but however, since the topic of my video is about Gold, it is suited to back the pictorial narrative and video with such music. This video shows the basics of Gold mining both hardrock and alluvial mining. Mining is done since time immemorial, as we can ponder in the Bible, of Job chapter 28 verses 1-11, we were even given hint on what and how is mining is done. The love of mining comes to me by chance and thereafter i learned to embrace it as a science and a passion. Come view the video on how my interest of mining evolved into a passion that i can't get away in my system. Whatever, whenever, however chances and twist of fate bring me, i will always find time to ...
This video is part 2 of "Alluvial Gold Prospecting - How to get the most Gold from a Dry Creek Bed". In this video, I process the dirt which I scraped up from a small 2 metre squared area of a dry creek bed ( gutter ) shown in the first video. Although the results we're not as good as I had hoped, they were still good. I ended up with around 5 grams of gold including a nice nugget...so around $250 (AUD) for half a days work was a good day indeed. Imagine what a few full days on a couple of hundred metres of that little creek ( washout gutter ) would produce...now that's payable ground. Happy prospecting. Aussie.

In this video I show you how to work a DRY Creek bed in order to get most of the Gold, and hopefully the best Gold, in it. I explain what to look for and how to identify where the richest and most concentrated "pockets" are most likely to be. This method is fairly meticulous, but in most cases, ensures you get the "BEST GOLD" if it is there. Enjoy.
