    I like this guy, but he needs to switch to decaf. Just kidding. He’s certainly not boring.

  2. Candis Lawyer on May 20, 2022 at 2:13 am

    Jeff you are my personal hero. My old man and I watch you and always chime in when it’s time too… “LETTTTTS GO”
    I found my first batch of quartz bearing gold two weeks ago working on extracting but being with limited resources I’m still trying to figure out how to diy extract.
    Luckily my hubby works in a machine shop and one of his coworkers is a patreon of yours and now that I have materials to show I know what to look for I’m getting support from these guys who are excited about my finds!
    Learning it all from you though, I’m able to identify the indicators and have come upon some interesting minerals.
    So continuously watching your videos is my own personal geology class! Father in law is actually getting the detector you recommend
    Spending the day in Piru today the water level is low and we just had an earthquake so I’m gonna put your lessons to use again and refreshing my knowledge you’ve so generously imparted.

    Thank you for being the BEST and only geologist gold specialist I will watch on here.
    Wish me luck please!

    And I know what makes you a madman it’s the GOLLLLLDDDDD. I got the fever SONNNN

  3. Mk47k on May 20, 2022 at 2:13 am

    Texas To California this is the first video I’ve seen! You made me grasp a hobby and made me a believer. Thank you sir William! I will be mining with your knowledge and experience when I get up there this January!🤘🏽🤘🏽

  4. RICARDO Rodriguez on May 20, 2022 at 2:14 am

    I’ve actually hunted in some of the areas you filmed in Sony Jim. I almost know exactly where you wher walking during this video. Lol

  5. richard lopez on May 20, 2022 at 2:15 am

    Is a permit required?

  6. Tammi Cwieka on May 20, 2022 at 2:17 am

    Hey Jeffe, So come on let’s go to Central City, Colorado. Why boy?, because it’s "The Richest Square Mile on Earth." That’s why boy! Hurry up about it! Stop by my gold ore shop at 109 Eureka! We will show you around some of our favorite prospecting spots. C-ya someday…

  7. Akire De Medici on May 20, 2022 at 2:20 am

    I knew those mountains looked really familiar in the beginning lol

  8. einsteindrieu on May 20, 2022 at 2:21 am

    Enjoyed Jeff !!!! 💙😎

  9. Kurt Auerbach on May 20, 2022 at 2:22 am

    This answered my question!

  10. Michael Pass on May 20, 2022 at 2:23 am

    I lived in the mountains, did have five feet of the stuff.

  11. Formally Known As… J.A. on May 20, 2022 at 2:24 am

    Man I live twenty minutes from there. Yeah this video was made three years ago but i feel like i just missed Jeff… bummer. It’s funny cause I go to the range up there all the time and I’m always starring out the window wondering if there’s gold in them hills… thanks for the answer Jeff.

  12. Michael Burns on May 20, 2022 at 2:24 am

    You missed the best spots.

  13. SMOKYY_DA_BEAR92 on May 20, 2022 at 2:25 am

    I would drive by that Hill everyday when I was younger would never think it was a goldmine thanks for all the information you’re pretty smart man

  14. Av8r Doug on May 20, 2022 at 2:25 am

    Blue Cut is a bit of a wierd and at times, dangerous area. There’s a few "alternate" segments of the population that meet up and hang out there. Do some research into the area before making the decision to go there. Few tiny flakes in the creek but not sure it’s worth it. The noobs love it there because its easy to get to and they can actually find some fly poop size flakes. They soon realize that their sammich and soda cost more than the value of the gold they are bringing home. Horsethief is pretty much all claimed up (or private property), as is Lytle Creek. Please people, learn how to check for claims and don’t jump them or trespass. There’s various ranches, private property, claims, and government owned lands in the areas in this video and they can make life difficult for prospectors if we don’t obey the rules and treat the land and owners with some respect. At least join one of the clubs that have the claims in the areas you want to prospect in, then go get all the shiny you want, legally.

  15. Joseph Pecoul on May 20, 2022 at 2:26 am

    Jeff when did you become the fuzz

  16. Randall Bro on May 20, 2022 at 2:27 am

    I heard government shutdown and was thinking this video was from like 2020 lol idk why

  17. Agromonious Munk on May 20, 2022 at 2:28 am

    Ventura County has gold as well on Piru Creek and Muta Creek. There are active gold mines on Frasier Mountain as well. There was a small gold rush there just prior to the gold discovery at Sutter Mill. A small town grew along Piru Creek, but immediately failed as the region was overshadowed. Some say it was due to a curse by the Spanish on the area. Apparently the Spanish had a rich gold mine there, but had to abandon it when Mexico gained it’s independence. They sealed it up and cursed it. The are also has the Lost McDonald Mine, another fabled rich find. I recommend checking it out and looking deeper into the lore around the gold in the Los Padres NationalForestq, I greatly summarized it.

  18. Wayne Lacroix on May 20, 2022 at 2:28 am

    You were lucky to find that spec 😆 that area has been hammered for years! I’ve never found much in that area. For me it’s not about the amount but just being out there. But coming home with a few specks is not much fun because I drive an hour to get there so I don’t waste gas going to places that don’t have much. But you certainly inspire people to get there! I’m ready to get out every day!!!

  19. Michael Pass on May 20, 2022 at 2:29 am

    Music to loud.

  20. John Wick on May 20, 2022 at 2:30 am

    he predicted the government shut down one year before :0

  21. Kara Sherman on May 20, 2022 at 2:31 am

    I enjoyed this WAY TOO MUCH! I live in the area. My husband is gonna be so irritated with me when I try to drag him to Lytle Creek this weekend.

  22. Greg Novick on May 20, 2022 at 2:34 am

    jeff, you’re so funny and crazy !!!!

    Hey Jeff, is there gold in San luis obispo?

  28. jakebrakebill on May 20, 2022 at 2:38 am

    This video brings back memories. As a kid, I hiked the heck out of all those canyons in the early 70’s. Use to come across a few Marijuana plants and their owners processing them. Guess you didn’t find any of that Jeff ? In less they weren’t worried about you finding their Gold in the beginning of the video, they were running you off from their plants. Lol…

  29. Bryon Tharp on May 20, 2022 at 2:42 am
