California - the low water levels in the states reservoirs exposes land never seen by the '49ers due to the top soil and bushes being washed away. This terrain is steep, as it is in a canyon, but the chances of finding a deposit are high because this is very near the famous Columbia Basin known for its riches during the 1860s.
