2 Replies and 57 Views Plumas County Claims  57  2 Started by Fires have made these claims pretty much inaccessible, and if the fire doesn't get you the smoke will. Will be awhile, maybe next year before you can get to them. This includes Joyce in Butte County. The fires there are extreme and we don't want to hamper fire fighters. They have enough on their plate. Hwy.70, Hwy. 89, Bucks Lake Rd., Antelope Lake Rd. Gennesse and Taylorsville Rds. from Beckworth and Portola. Stay safe, Thank You just a heads up.

13 Replies and 16366 Views ---------}》> GPAA CLAIMS DIRECTORY <《{----------  16366  13 Started by  Dixie_Desert_Digger So I finally found the 'New' Online GPAA Claims Directory under the Community 'Tab'. I filed my report on the Gold Basin AZ Bahde 10 &11 Claims. I will go back and add more pics and perhaps even a more detailed report with more information. Afterwards I began to search other claims to read other reports and I was really shocked to see hardly anyone taking the time to file their reports and the few I saw gave little info or intel. I vividly recall many members requesting it, so I was really ...

3 Replies and 143 Views No Properties in Virginia  143  3 Started by I just joined and was shocked that there are no properties in Virginia to explore. Where I live near Goldvein Virginia there are a lot of old gold mines in the area. I expected there would be some sites within the state. I also would like to find a person to go out with. If you live in Virginia and need a prospecting buddy contact me. I have found few areas that are public land near old gold mines, I used a metal detector around one today but the metal trash was impossible to work around. I wil...

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...

I was travelling across country during my gap year before heading to college. I rockhounded a little bit and was stopping into a shop to buy a rock hammer and saw a pan sitting there. At that moment I was hooked, the idea of pulling gold out of the ground with my own hands and work is something i will never tire of. I went to the Libby Creek Recreational Gold panning area and spent the next 2.5 weeks on and off working and meeting new people, everyone had something to teach and I loved every min...
