5 Replies and 229 Views Locations to Pan Research??  229  5 Started by  elmo991200@gmail.com hey there folks. Just curious as to how everyone goes about finding places to pan and prospect at. Other than the national forests. Not having a vehicle to access alot of out of the way spots is a huge hinderance at the moment. I live in an area where knocking on doors isn't accepted very well. I put a few adds on facebook and one on craigslist recently but no hits as of yet. We have our chapter meeting on Wednesday of next week where I can do some chatting with other active members in the regio...

7 Replies and 2436 Views Trip to Little Miami  2436  7 Started by  golfballbill67@yahoo.com Went to Georgia to do a little highbanking, got snowed in for several days, was unable to do any highbanking. Got back home to Ohio and had that itch I just had to scratch, so I went to the Little Miami. About 3 hours of running, ended up with some nice gold and a big fossil. Will be grateful to anyone who can help identify the fossil.

3 Replies and 175 Views Miller Table Surface  175  3 Started by  davidvanderpool@att.net I obtained a 12'x30' slab of natural slate, about 3/8' thick, and was considering using it to build a Miller Table. The flat surfaces appear to be along the natural cleavage; basically smooth, but with very slight ripples. It is not perfectly smooth and flat like a chalkboard. There is a monument/gravestone business near me that would have the machinery to plane the surface flat, plus saw off the rough edges. Would this be recommended, or would the 'natural' slate surface be superior Th...

1 Replies and 335 Views K- River camp ground  335  1 Started by  r08faler@yahoo.com Spent the day 9/21/2019 at K-River campground, awesome campground, friendly people but no gold. Tried several places on the river. Lady at the camp said several people have panned there with no luck. Also, the photo of camp is outdated. Nice place to relax, get your feet wet. Easy to find. No thumbs up from me.

I apologize in advance, this is somewhat a sob story....I am a disabled vet, alone and with PTSD that keeps me in the mountains and in nature and as far away from people as possible. I cant climb or dig with a shovel, nor can I hike or walk very far. I also am being made to suffer with massive pain issues due to my allergies to pain medications. All I'm really looking to do is be in and around creeks and streams etc, and learn how and where to do some light panning, where I can f...

3 Replies and 370 Views fine gold recovery  370  3 Started by  randy82271@gmail.com I have only been in to gold hunting for about a year. I always wanted to try and finally took the leap at the Alabama gold camp. The camp is mostly fine gold in courtesy piles. And a little bigger sometimes in creek but harder digging. My question is. I run a high banker and classify to 3/8 thru my header box. Would it be best to classify to a little bigger than gold you will find and bypass all the other larger stuff And take a chance of missing that rare nugget. Think blasting o...

It was a good trip and a decent amount of flood gold and one small nugget found. I myself just went down with shovel, classifier, bucket and pan. Ron carried down a small sluice and we worked two different areas in a bend of the claim. It wasn't the best spot on the river but at least I knew it had color and the scenery is beautiful. No rattles...

5 Replies and 571 Views Gold Ore  571  5 Started by  33oneworld@gmail.com I have a benchmark 15 ton punch press that I made a crusher for to crush rocks down for tumbling. I can make it crush to powder also. Is it worth it for me to get Gold Ore to crush and try to get the gold out or is it just to fine for the beginner with limited resources. I have sheets of aircraft aluminum and I made my own sluice box. I bought the burlap, minor moss and the 'V' groove matting along with a set of riffles. I have been running the sluice at 7 degrees right now in basement into a ...
