I assume a lot of the minerals you do find are valuable, how much of a profit can you get, if any?

Too general a question, you could find a billion quartz nodules or some diamonds. The quartz nodules could be amethyst and have some value or none at all. You might find a diamond which could be gem quality or useless as a gem but have value as an abrasive. Some people might buy every stone you find and others find them worthless. It can be very rewarding or not.
