    Michael,

    Welcome!

    My wife and I are going to Loud Mine (1.2 miles up Town Creek Rd. from Gold and Gem Grubbin) on Saturday. We will be in a Black Dodge Ram, with prospector emblems, lol.

    I am going to do some prospecting and to catch up with the Care Takers at Loud Mine (great people!).

    I will probably bring my 12" Crisson Made Water Powered Trommel and the gold cube.

    Gold and Gem Grubbin has some really nice amethyst, etc...

    I have found a very rough sapphire at Loud Mine (about 12 carats, but, almost shattered.

    You will need to upgrade to LDMA to mine at Loud as it is an LDMA claim.

    GPAA members can attend one of the outings at Loud and camp there and mine on their own time when not working on the common operation

    If you were at Gold and Gem Grubbing,  You could come by Loud to meet Crock the caretaker. You could also sign up for LDMA while you were there.
