Merced River gravel

We start with Merced River gravel

The majority of our paydirt uses Merced River gravel. It has high mineralization, plenty of natural black sand and a small chance of random wild gold. The Merced at one time was a very very rich placer river. We either unload the truck onto tarps, or sometimes we fill bulk bags.

I started Goldbay in 1999 as a response to man-made or fake gold nuggets being auctioned on Ebay. I wanted a site that could control the authenticity of products and connect gold nugget buyers with a reputable source
