If I had been to 40 "clams" and never found gold, 1st I'd start going to "claims". And then I would take a good hard look at myself and admit I wasn't a very good prospector.

Clark hit the nail on the head,,,, I have Been doing the Gold thing for 50 years and heard most all "Newbie bitching" reasons you can hear about No gold I can stand But this wins the prize . 1st get you a panning bag or two and a Home depot tub,,,And a person that Realy knows how to pan then let him show you how to pan . Then wear that bag out over and over panning to you are tired of it . Then ask the person that showed you how to pan go to several caims where you did not find gold and show you how again . Some can find gold right off the bat,, some need help bad . Get some help quick . It's hard to jump right in and find gold each and every time but 40 claims,,,,, No way . Get the bags and tub with help to show you how to pan . Good Luck,,,Miner Mike .

The old truth Gold mining starts at the pan and ends at the pan. Learn to pan and you will find gold.

I have had good days and bad days,, some days i found gold,, other days i just moved alot of dirt. Thats life, if your never finding anything, then its time to try new tactics, or a new hobby. I was at gold and gem grubbing last week, after 60 buckets,,,, no gold, not even a spec,, but the gems were more than jumping. The folks next to us, didnt find any good gems but they did find some nice flakey gold. Its a crap shoot, you ether love doing this or you dont.
Sorry to hear that your having a difficult time

I worked a small wash that had been vacuumed down to bedrock. I took my small hand sledgehammer and cracked the top layer of bedrock for about 50 ft and vacuumed and found just over 8 gram's. There were large flakes and several pickers. So if an area looks worked do a little work to check it and you might be surprised.

I like to see these kind of comments to remind people that it takes a lot of practice and research to make it work. I've been prospecting for a long time and telling people that it is a technique that just needs to be refined. I'm not a rich man but i love the outdoors, it feels good to see color in your pan or slouch. Its even a better feeling when you teach someone what you have learned and you get the opportunity to pass it on to someone else.

Study,study and study some more. Also accept the fact that the entire United States has been mined extensively in the past. I prospect nm , dry desert conditions. I have had good results following advice I have read from Australian prospectors.

I'm a new member and new to gold prospecting and on each outing I have done I have found gold. Not sure what the people are complaining about. sounds like they either are not digging in the right spots and need more experience to learn that. Or they method they are using to catch the gold is not working for them. I have gone out with the local Delta gold diggers chapter and all the people are friendly and again have always found gold. Glad I joined.

If your ever in AZ, look me up.  I find the gold on the GPAA claims and post pics constantly on facebook.  Best day was almost 3 grams.  My 14 year old son picked that spot.  Just have to know where to look.

Holy Cow! I saw this post start almost a year ago and shortly after I got so busy with my Relic Hunting, I took a break from Gold until now, which I am back to, and it's hilarious to see the post still alive LOL
