5 Replies and 241 Views Gold Prospectors 1, 2 & Warrior (San Diego, CA)  241  5 Started by 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 63 Views What to do with lead and iron trash?  63  1 Started by 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!...

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...

7 Replies and 646 Views Prospecting permit  646  7 Started by 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.
