  1. Are these ditches just supply for hydraulic mining monitors or are they ground sluicing? There is old patented (&fenced) mine property south of the road, no large pits, just some wider areas in the gulches. The area history is of gravels worked in the gulches and the decomposed material on ridges between gulches was also supposed to be gold bearing. A few hard rock mines are north and up hill of this area. I plan to detect around here a bit and wonder if the wider portions of the ditches, top center and the two parallel north of road, were ground sluice areas or if this was all to water the mine south of the road. Was any gold in ditch parts or just water? Should I focus on the hillsides and gulches and ignore the ditches? Of course I will check it all, just wondering about the original use.
