7 Replies and 273 Views Arizona Prospecting  273  7 Started by  Stancalavan1964@gmail.com I have been Prospecting the Arizona desert now for a couple of years with really no success. I did buy a small hand puffer, dry washer but have had no success finding ground worth using it. I have been mining in the Morris town area claims. I know there must still be some gold out there on those claims, just need a little guidance on where to look for it. I tend to migrate towards the small washes and I guess that's not where to go since I have found nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciat...

2 Replies and 459 Views South Dakota GPAA Gold Claims  459  2 Started by  blarran@yahoo.com I started panning about a year ago. I live in Minnesota. I joined GPAA so I could be able to pan for gold in Blackhills of South Dakota. The GPAA mining guide 2020 edition listed Eagle Eye 1 as being near Rapid City. When I drove to Eagle Eye, the posted signs said that the claim has reverted back to private land use and GPAA members are not allowed. I did go to Husker claim near Deadwood but noticed that the site wasn't well marked. I found only one gold claim marker but it was part...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
My son and I are going out to Rye Patch in a couple of months. My question is this. Can someone tell me basically how far west of the reservoir we need to drive or hike to get to an area where we would have a fair chance of finding a couple of small nuggets. We have two machines a Fisher gold bug 2 and a MineLab Equinox 800 so they will find really small pieces but I would love a little direction please. Thanks, Ron

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
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 843 Views Membership card  843  4 Started by  josh92198@gmail.com Hi all, I’m a new member in the so cal area. I tried my best to find the answer to my own question but need some help. I just joined and I am a college student right now, so I took the monthly payment option for the membership. On the webpage, it does show that it doesn’t include a membership card, but I have access to the claims etc. I’ve seen you need a guide, and your membership card with you while prospecting. So how can I gain a membership card Any help is appreciated. Thank you
