Price of gold luring people to prospecting - | Gold prospecting |
The price of gold has lots of Arizonans getting a metal detector to try and find a treasure.


"This is what gold looks like right out of the ground," said Rob Allison, pulling six ounces of gold out of his pocket. "This gold was found with a metal detector. There are different sizes from little tiny nuggets to some bigger ones. The biggest gold in my hand is about three quarters of an ounce."


The handful of gold he had is worth about ten thousand bucks. Allison is a longtime prospector. He sells metal detectors as the owner of Rob's Detector Sales. He said there are a lot of tools to use in prospecting.
