Do these have any significant value?

Just for the gold content Matt...I crush them and then pan out the gold.

Pappy you are quite the Renaissance treasure hunter - all types and all places lol
Too bad gold is so valuable ;) because those are gorgeous as they area!
Wonderful find!

Tell me, are you using any specific type of gold hunting method when you do "digging(creeking)," as in a particular panning technique?

I usually just eyeball the quartz lying in the creek and then again sometimes I take a hand shaker with me...dig up some dirt...put it in the shaker and sift and look to see what I have...GREAT SUMMERTIME PASTIME being in the water and finding gold too. Have collected quite a bit that way.GREAT way to find different kinds of rocks/gems & Minerals also. I also do quite a bit of panning at the river.
