Finding gold deposits can be a very profitable hobby, as anyone who finds a good source is able to sell the gold for a lucrative price. One way of finding gold involves searching for gold deposits in the river. The gold is often settled in the rivers during times of heavy rain. Once in the river, it sweeps down into the banks until finally, it is coated by a light residue.
