Is that gold real?

Yup. Most of it we got ourselves either from our placer or lode claims, but to be honest over the past few years we've been focusing more on lode than placer. There's something very gratifying about digging gold out of solid rock. In both California and Nevada there are thousands of these abandoned mines and they're yours for the picking. Not every lode mine requires a lot of work, some of them are nothing more than a quartz vein where you just dig the rock out, crush it and pick out the gold. All the gold below we either found, or someone we know found it. It's real, and there's a lot more out there.
