I was looking at doing this setup because it is a bit cheaper to get and yes i know its more work to setup. A dry washer is a bit more expensive and less setup time to it. I was wondering...

My main concern is the accessibility of the GPAA claims in my State. 2WD vehicle as well, so that has to be taken into consideration as to where I can go. I have panned in SD in the area of Deadwood back in August, spoke to BLM there where I can pan and I had a lot of fun. 2.73g isn't too bad for a first timer. I...

2 Replies and 557 Views Legal Equipment on a GPAA claim in Alaska  557  2 Started by  dsevernsgrant@gmail.com I have a quick question reference legal mining equipment in the Chugach National Park Alaska. The land is federal and specifies prospecting with hand equipment only. The discussion does not reference private claims in the park. So does this limit us to hand equipment only on a GPAA claim within this park or should I contact The Park Rangers I will contact the claim owner as in this one case I know who it is. This is not always the case. Thank you Daniel.

And it's covered in multi-layers of magnetic black sand. So I have been panning samples i brought into town with me (during this co...
