    Hi all,

    My family and I are in the Phoenix area for just a few more days.  We went up to the Yahoos GPAA claim area all day today with no luck.  We have a Garrett AT Pro metal detector.  We've never prospected for gold in Arizona before.  We currently have 2 more days (December 21 and December 22) scheduled to prospect for gold - but we need help!  We just aren't sure where and how we should be looking.  Is there anyone in the area willing to either chat or give us a lesson on how this works?  

     

    Thanks!

    Check with the local chapters like Apache Junction, Scott 602 434-2843 or some of the other chapter in the Phoenix area.
    Scan the hillsides nuggets will be deep in a sand wash and detector may not be able to reach them. Look for areas along washes also where there is runs off the hill side. Check decontaminated quartz out crops and below. Others may have some better information for you.  
    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
