    I have some basic prospecting equipment, excellent electronic equipment for detecting on land and water & a 4x4.

    Located in the Sacramento area. Would like to team up with someone compatible.

    Israel,

    Southern California and Arizona are great prospecting areas. Primarily along I10 there are some great claims in the Mining Guide. Should bring a metal detector along and take a rest break at one or 2. I had ot make that drive 2 times last winter and stopped both times at different claims to take an hour off and it was worth the time just for the scenery. The gold was ok too.

    Hello folks,

    I live in Sacramento, have had the fever since this past summer. I've acquired a small high-banker, ran off a 12-volt battery; a miller table for processing those super-cons, and a few pans/shovels/tools. I could use a partner as well, willing to meet anywhere within 1.5 hours of Sacramento (only drive a Camry, the 4x4 isn't road-ready yet).

    The caveat - no drugs. Can't stand 'em. If you want to drink a beer or two, I'm okay with that (won't participate though), but can't be around the weed or other stuff.

    So if you're clean, sober, and ready to shovel and split the take, I'm checking this board semi-frequently. Thanks!

    Grass Valley is no where near Anaheim. Me thinks there are several GPAA claims near the LA area.

    Isn't GPAA Headquarters in the LA area? South of LA heading toward Dan Diego I think. I know lots of great places to prospect near LA. I see you tube videos of the San Gabriel river a lot and the I 10 corridor has lots of places to go. Like an hour or less north or south of the highway on major state highways. I miss California.

    I live in Illinois and am new to this.  I tried this last summer with my son and we had a blast.  Now I have the fever and he has a job.

    I want to drive west when the weather finally warms up and do some digging somewhere between Montana and Arizona, Lots of choices, but the south will be warmer sooner.  I am thinking March or April.   I have some equipment, pans and sluice and am building a motorized trammel.  I am having trouble finding someone to go digging with.  I live west of Chicago and am newly retired from teaching. I am looking for a prospecting buddy.

    Sure is fun up there, had a great time.  That is the Green Horn Creek, in Grass Valley, CA.  Did you find a local chapter to join on the list?

    Hi Richard, is the Green Horn Creek Claim a GPAA claim? It isn't in the 2014 mining guide. If it is can you point me to a link or something for its location. I come down to the Sacramento area frequently and try out claims in the vicinity. Would like to check it out. Like your YouTube videos, too.
