May I suggest you drop into your nearest detecting and prospecting shop, have a browse through their publications, and I'm sure you will find the information you require. Failing that, try the local library. Geology and mining history are probably the headings that you need to search, and these will definitely turn up something even if you use your computer search engine.
From your request I get the impression that you are badly in need of some research, and research is something that you can never have too much of. " Knowledge is no burden".

Totally agree with you reg, plenty of info out there.
Good old you tube is the way to go yellowmellow, easier to watch a vid than to try and explain.
And remember not all reefs are gold bearing.

cheers  moredeep

Tim, Reg & moredeep have given you some sound advice, try to follow up on what they've said. Do as much research on what gold diggings/surfacings & gold bearing reef lines look like, then get out there & try to spot similar type workings. The only way you're going to find out for yourself, is by getting out there & putting in the ground time exploring.

Hmmmmm. Is this a trick question?? Suspect

If you can find yourself a copy of  "Prospectors' Guide" (Victoria) you will find an excellent description of Reefs and Indicators.
I have the 1958 fourth edition and the 1938 Third edition. This third edition belonged to my grandfather.

Here is a bit of what it states about reefs and indicators.

Many people confuse indicator and indications. I hope adrian's post has cleared this up for those confused.
