0 Replies and 16 Views Colorado Update, now is the time to start planning a trip  16  0 Started by  crashcrain@gmail.com I was in Telluride 'To Hell You Ride' last weekend, the head of the San Miguel River was still hanging with ice, but the water has slowed and cleared. I am going to be taking a member to some of our claims, and my personal claim, plus recreational rich claims. Our window this year is from now to about the second to third week of September. Be safe, the water is still fast and snow is already falling at high elevation. Bring your wet gear, cold weather gear, warm weather gear, mosquito repelle...

13 Replies and 477 Views Claims Guide vs Website Coordinates  477  13 Started by  theasthmatics@aol.com On the site, it gives totally different GPS coordinates for the ingress/center mark than what is in the mining guide (2018) for the Crimson Dove claims in Utah. The website coordinates (which, unless I'm mistaken, only give the ingress and center -- no corners) put the claim in the Fishlake National Forrest, close to the Fremont Indian State Park, right in Mill Creek The guide coordinates put it about 20 miles southeast in the middle of a swath of desert. Which is correct I've got a c...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 3 ... 4 )
I was wondering if anyone has a preferred place to buy pay dirt to pan with where you will find good color.  I ask because my 5 year old daughter has become bitten by the gold bug and I want to help 'cultivate' her understanding of the trade.  I my self am green at it all but have a couple trips planned with family and friends to go on a couple GPAA claims.  I want the pay dirt to make sure my daughter finds something.  Just looking for any suggestions.  Yes I know this ...

1 Replies and 135 Views UPDATE from Colorado  135  1 Started by  crashcrain@gmail.com I am sorry to say that the full melt is now on and the rivers are worse then I last reported, entire islands are gone, huge banks washed out, and giant boulders moved down stream. Even the 'Telluride Watch' news letter is warning people to stay out of the river unless you are a extreme expert rafter because the entire river has changed shape and there is a great deal of debris moving in the fast and high water. One of my fellow claim owners is heading down to a area that is usually very low ...

3 Replies and 252 Views Colorado, a bad year for prospecting  252  3 Started by  crashcrain@gmail.com I am sorry I have not posted in a long time but I have kept in touch with a few members. I want to let you know the conditions of Colorado are not good at all for even rafters, they are dying weekly, and the main melt hasn't even really begun yet. I was at two claims that we would normally work this time of year just 4 weeks ago and the water was so high, fast, and full of debris it was impossible to even approach. Three weeks ago I was in Telluride and saw that the head of the San Miguel Ri...

2 Replies and 183 Views New Equipment  183  2 Started by  anthony.ingersoll2@outlook.com Good evening, I just got a new piece of equipment delivered today via Amazon. I kicked the bucket so to speak on this piece of equipment. I caved in and got the Gold Rush Nugget Bucket. The bucket is not all that bad, to be honest. Albeit being a new invention there are areas of improvement. The Gold Pan its self is eh so so. But then again I have my personal preference on the type of pan. One of the major benefits though is the fact that everything you need is contained within the bucket...

0 Replies and 77 Views Paydirt  77  0 Started by  anthony.ingersoll2@outlook.com I am sure that we all know what paydirt is and how it works. Many times, I have seen people go crazy over the paydirt because they do not get dollar for dollar in the gold. I have often said that if you want gold dollar for dollar then you just need to go and buy gold bars, nuggets, or coins. However, with that being said there are benefits to the use of paydirt. I do buy paydirt on a fairly regular basis. There are a couple of major reasons that I do this. The first reason is to keep up on t...

2 Replies and 110 Views Equipment  110  2 Started by  anthony.ingersoll2@outlook.com I have been prospecting for a bit with just a gold pan, classifiers and the like. I now have decided that it is time to add some more equipment to the arsenal. I have been going through various youtube videos dealing with the blue bowl versus the miller table and the spiral wheel. However, the reviews seem like they are split down the middle 50/50. So my question is this; which one would you recommend and why Also, in regards to the videos; if you could post some links so I can check them out, ...

0 Replies and 110 Views New Report from Colorado  110  0 Started by  crashcrain@gmail.com I went down with the BLM to our claim,'I call the walk into hell is easy, it's much harder to find your way out.' But if you want to find the good gold then you travel where most won't. Once you get there you realize it is paradise. River conditions were awful, feet higher then just a few week ago and the head of the river and snow are forming a glacier that is going to break loose at some point this summer, the main melt has not even started as of yet. I am going to give a serious compl...
