    Why doesn't the on line mining guide have a map of the area showing the location? The old guide did. The map showed the topography of the area


    which was very useful.




















    I deal in reality and call them as I see them. Frank

    Frank, if you left click on the center of claim or ingress point GPS coordinates it opens a google earth map of that point.

    We are still using the paper guide and in future will have another new one out. The online guide gives an up to date information like if the claim is not there then it has been discontinued for some reason. Also it is an information gathering tool for the members and hopefully information to make the new paper guide more useful and up to date when it is published. Please do not ask when a new guide is going to be published, I do not know at this time, suspect that it will be after the new online guide has collected more information. Better Mining Guides means we need better information, best information always comes from members. The Pick and Shovels are also online that update this mining guide and is also in the works to make it easier to print from. 



    As a side note members can put pictures in the online guide which a map is a picture as well as turns and on the prospecting side it also accepts pictures of what boundaries may look like, water level, sand bars, camp areas - you get the picture. As a Gold Life member I can see this as a great tool when I go to a claim I have never been to before.
    If you notice an error in the Online Mining Guide or with claim information please add in the updated information into the online mining guide to inform other members. Thank You Walter H. Eason

    Why don't you just put the information from the paper guide in the online version? Then you won't even need the paper version. If someone wants to print out a page, they can. That way all of the current, and complete, information will be in one place. Even when you print the new guide it will be out of date quickly. And then you have to go back-and-forth between online and printed copy to get the complete picture.

    Do you still have to have the printed guide with you when you go on a claim ?

    Always best to have printed guide when you go to claims, if you happen to get to a wrong location or asked about the location you have something to show your intent. As far as copying the guide to online the intent of the online is to get members engaged with the claims so that other members get information about the claim that is most recent. Not available to published books, I have been told that there will be another paper guide int he future just that time has not been set yet.

    Yes customer service can help you with that, I know the books do get a bit ragged in time if you use them.

    Last Mining Guide was printed in 2014, I have been told we will continue to publish paper mining guides but the enhancement to the paper mining guide would be the online guide. It gives a venue for members to give update for all other members to see. We also have the Pick and Shovels online which also gives all the updates to update the existing paper guide. I think that all the leases back east have some information in them. This is not true of the Places of Interest, Pay to digs or the collecting area which have not had as many members populating them as to date.

    You do have to log into the secure site or you will not see everything on the web site including the information that members have shared on the online guide.
