1 Replies and 195 Views K- River camp ground  195  1 Started by 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 Also, the photo of camp is outdated.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.

3 Replies and 914 Views Minnesota  914  3 Started by  twins.fan91 I am a retired Marine who recently moved back to Minnesota and I am interested in prospecting here.  I live in Lake City and would like to find places close to me.  I have read about Nugget Lake in Wisconsin quite a bit, but have not been there yet.  I know about the gold rush on the Zumbro river near Oronoco and that that area is on private land.  I am assuming that prospecting would be better above the dam creating Lake Zumbro, but do not know if there are places for the pu...

(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 ...

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 321 Views fine gold recovery  321  3 Started by 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...

7 Replies and 484 Views Colorado Update, HIT IT NOW  484  7 Started by Ron and Stacy Kennedy came up from Texas and wanted to work some claims so he gave me a call and I took him down to the FLW, BOSS, and Snake City Claims. 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 505 Views Gold Ore  505  5 Started by 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 ...

5 Replies and 465 Views Ohio Panning  465  5 Started by I have found some Gold in the western part of Ohio under a super magnifier but nothing that the kids seem to enjoy. Are there still places that you can go and find flower Gold or just a bit bigger I was going to buy some pay dirt just to let them have fun but since Im a member I would rather go and hunt for it on a claim which to me is part of the learning and adventure. Thanks for your time and any guidance is better then none.

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 394 Views UPDATE from Colorado  394  2 Started by 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 ...
