3 Replies and 464 Views backpack for panning  464  3 Started by  Petekottke Yesterday I went to a public area to do some stream digging. With a bucket, shovel, sluice box in hand, I trekked to my spot and did some digging. As I was walking out with my gear, I noticed panners walking in with a unique backpack. I didn't get a picture of their pack, but I can describe it. It looked like an external backpack. It had two vertical pouches, one on each side of the area that housed a 5-gallon bucket and sluice box. That area for the bucket was intentionally void, specificall...

1 Replies and 179 Views We have concentrates we just need someone who can extract the gold  179  1 Started by My boss is part owner of a pretty famous gold mine and because of this we have about 50k tons of concentrate and hard rock ore left over from the exploration stage of his project. This particular ore is known to have high concentrations of gold, silver and other PGM's, but one of the issues we're having is that normal fire assays are not picking up all the gold. Much of the gold is being washed away. We need a master assayer that can extract hard to get gold through a chemical or atomic procedur...

0 Replies and 84 Views Information on Triple D and M claim  84  0 Started by Hello, I was wondering if anybody from the staff has any information on the Triple D and M claim in Ventura County, CA on Piru Creek. It is the closest claim to my house and there is no information under the directions or prospecting tabs in the claim directory. I haven't received my member package in the mail yet but was hoping to read something on the claim in the meantime.

16 Replies and 7966 Views Angeles National Forest  7966  16 Started by  MSohlberg The 2014 GPAA Guide (Lastest version, I believe) lists Angeles National Forest near Azusa California as Public Land on which prospectors can pan or sluice for gold.  However, upon visiting the website for that national forest, I find this statement:  'All mining operations (location of mining claims, prospecting, and mining, including panning, sluicing, and dredging) under the 1872 Mining Law are prohibited within withdrawn areas of the Angeles National Forest.  Public Law No. 57...

2 Replies and 260 Views Does anybody read these?  260  2 Started by  pbhunter4 I'm giving someone a chance with my book. If you don't buy the cheap book with many color pictures and secrets and clues and just a good read and go find it. I will find it this summer, fairly positive. link below to my facebook where you can purchase the future best seller.

4 Replies and 305 Views Claim map  305  4 Started by Ok so I just joined and was wondering if there is an online user friendly map of all the claims. I see you can search an area online and get claims, but you have to go through every one to figure out where they are. Is there a spot on this site where the claims are mapped out with names so it's easier to search. I plan to spend the next month or two driving from Mammoth Lakes Ca. To Tucson and hitting our claims and doing other prospecting along the way, so just would like a nice user friendl...

4 Replies and 314 Views Melting gold  314  4 Started by  j.gray.17 I was smelting my gold and using propane but it didn’t heat up enough so I changed from propane to map gas and the gold seems like it melted into the flux. I’m new to this so I’m not sure exacly how to redo it. My flux went from black with a gold center to black with a greenish center that I assume is the gold mixed with the flux.

2 Replies and 304 Views Mining guide coordinates  304  2 Started by  Kenaslan In the day and age of modern GPSs that use STANDARD coordinates the latitude and longitude system went out with the dinosaurs. Does anyone know of a good app to change the outdated longitudinal coordinates to every day Garmin GPS The Garmin Montana 610 that I use, uses standard WGS 84 hddd°mm.mmm' not a system that was used at the turn of the century. The use of non standard,outdated coordinates makes me want to not renew my GPAA membership

The claim page gives me two gps coordinates (center and ingress points) How do I find the other 3 corners I don't want to cross over into someone else's claim or private property. Here is a claim I am interested in going to this month - GOLD PROSPECTORS 1, 2 & WARRIOR I can get my hands on a GPS unit if it makes it easier.
