0 Replies and 65 Views incorrect coordinates and little data  65  0 Started by comparing coordinates in 50th anniversary edition and GPAA web site (blue moon, smith placer claims) coordinates are close but not exact. The 2014 edition gives townships ranges and sections were the 50th edition and the web site only gives latitude and longitude and no information on driving directions. Also how do you know if a claim is still active with the GPAA and has not been taken back or has became a close claim.

5 Replies and 297 Views LDMA vs GMAA  297  5 Started by Hello Folks-I'm curious-I asked this of the HQ members, but no reply. That's ok, they're busy--but I'd like to know. What is the difference in the GMAA and the LDMA I see events that are attended by both groups. The LD costs $4800 and the GMAA costs $155 for 3 years. I don't understand the relationship. Are the claims the same What's the deal. Should I join the LDMA Are the claims in the Mining Guide the same for both groups Which is better Thanks in advance. Rick T

I am a new LDMA and GPAA member and I have to say this is the one of the most lame forums I have ever seen. There is virtually no new information about claims either GPAA or LDMA.

I want to get started prospecting, but most of the information is out dated or non existent. Why is there so little information for new members As it stands for newbie on the east s...
