To get Gold Nuggets in Animal Crossing New Horizons, you'll need to strike rocks with a Stone Axe. As well as clay, iron and stone, there's a small chance that Gold Nuggets will be chipped off from a large rock. You can find these rocks throughout your island, or on other islands in the game.28-Apr-2020,
Rivers and Creeks One of the best places to find gold is in a river or creek, especially in areas with high erosion. The erosion process coupled with the heavy weight of gold, makes the metal accumulate naturally in waterways. Digging in the gravels and rocks in rivers and creeks can help you find gold nuggets.
The best gold mining areas in California are in 3 distinct regions; in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, further north in the Siskiyou and Trinity Mountains, and in parts of the Mojave desert in southern California.30-Aug-2015
