Do they mean there is not enough gold per ton for it to be profitable?
I've been all over Central Texas to the border-has anyone tried panning for gold?

Some gold and silver has been found around Mason and Llano counties primarily associated with the Llano Uplift geological area. Mason county is also known for Texas blue topaz which can be found in the area if you have permission to access property or at a "pay to dig" site. I have been to that area in the past on arrowhead hunts but would like to go back someday with a gold pan and also to "eyeball" for some blue topaz:smile:

From some of the pics I've seen I would think so if you are lucky enough to get a coil close to one. I remember seeing a pic a few years ago where someone found a native silver nugget about the size of a quarter using a metal detector. The pic that really intrigues me is the handful of nuggets found while dredging in the Guadalupe River around Kerrville.? That stretch of the Guadalupe runs a little NW to SE in that area of Texas with many creeks and natural drainages feeding down from the mineralized area (Llano Uplift) just north of there? The history of that area claims that the Spanish did some mining in the 1700's and later in the 1800's claims of silver deposits were talked about? Here I am trying to recover from "gold fever" and you have to bring up this subject:throw: Ha!

In this case, the fever has you close to home.:biggrin:N/T
