Walbash river

 Hello everyone, I live in Vincennes Indiana which has the Walbash river bordering it. This is a very old River and I'm wondering if there could be any gold on it? Or am I wasting my time I need to look elsewhere.

Thank you very much Mark

  • There has been some good gold found on the Wabash River... Take to heart what David Olson said though. 

  • My understanding is you need to get to bedrock or pre ice age river beds. Based on what I know about the Wabash, it has a lot of sediment on top of the bedrock. I would look near New Harmony in the creek beds with  a lot bedrock and fossils for gold. The other option that seems viable is to get access to the gravel pits and look for gold near the wash stations.
