29 Replies and 3195 Views new members suffer  3195  29 Started by  gmiller5374@yahoo.com
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
I am a new LDMA and GPAA member and I have to say this is the one of the most lame forums I have ever seen. There is virtually no new information about claims either GPAA or LDMA. The catalog of information is about worthless as no new information has been published in what appears to be months to mostly years. I want to get started prospecting, but most of the information is out dated or non existent. Why is there so little information for new members As it stands for newbie on the east s...

8 Replies and 797 Views Prospecting permit  797  8 Started by  johnrmckeel@gmail.com I am new to prospecting and plan an outing to southern Nevada in the next few weeks. I wanted to go to one of the GPAA claims and explore. I read in my copy of the Mining Guide that I am required to have the guide with me, my membership card to GPAA and a 'Prospecting Permit'. I don't recall this permit. I assume it would have come in my membership package but can't find anything. How can I obtain one Thank you.

4 Replies and 173 Views New to GPAA  173  4 Started by  plmrphil@aol.com I’m finding very little information about locations on the website. I have an RV and can’t find information on which locations I can stay at. Or for haw long and Amenities. Also I do not find a map of locations. I have to google each one Individually. Than they give me the information for the general public. How does being a member of GPAA differ, I must be missing something. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Phil

6 Replies and 441 Views Gold Prospectors 1, 2 & Warrior (San Diego, CA)  441  6 Started by  zerdoff@gmail.com I went to GOLD PROSPECTORS 1, 2 & WARRIOR twice for 3 hours and found only nails and bullets so far. So I got few questions to save some time in the future. - Does this area contain any metal detectable gold Does it worth trying there with metal detector - Are there any other trails besides the one which starts at the picnic area - Does anyone plan to go there soon I could use some company. FYI: I'm 33 and I'm new to gold prospecting.

1 Replies and 254 Views What to do with lead and iron trash?  254  1 Started by  woltersaustin@yahoo.com Hey guys I'm wondering what people do with the trash they find I know people take pride in removing lead, iron, mercury, etc from creeks and just general mining areas. However I'm more city slicker than redneck even though I grew up in Dallas. I'm not really sure if there's a good use or safe way to dispose of some of this stuff. I assume we don't want to just chunk it back into our local landfills via the trash, so I'm looking for the best way to deal with it. Thanks in advance for any advice!...

4 Replies and 958 Views gps Ingress Point and Center of Claim  958  4 Started by  Petekottke@gmail.com Perhaps some of my veteran prospectors can help me. 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.
