54 Replies and 5101 Views new members suffer  5101  54 Started by  gmiller5374@yahoo.com
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 3 )
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. The catalog of information is about worthless as no new information has been published in what appears to be months to mostly years. 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...

0 Replies and 12 Views Idaho Claims Open?  12  0 Started by  cw@kalisoft.com I know most, if not all of the national forest campgrounds are closed in Idaho, but wondering if someone can still access the GPAA claims Thinking some of the claims would be a good place to 'shelter in place' for a week or so. If anyone knows anything, would appreciate some info.

1 Replies and 65 Views Taking Care of Business while prospecting  65  1 Started by  carenann@gmail.com Hello! I am new to prospecting and new to GPAA but having a great time so far. Recently I found myself on a claim out in the Sierras with no immediate access to facilities. I was grossed out when I saw a very shallow 'pit' covered in used toilet paper between the parking lot and the creek. Not only was it close to the creek (<50ft), which can create unhygienic conditions for us all in the creek, it was in what looked like the leftovers of a dredge operation that would otherwise be a good pla...

0 Replies and 26 Views Mining Relic's of the Mother lode  26  0 Started by  smithsgold@aol.com https://youtu.be/139UoRP5_Cc There are relic's from the California Gold Rush all over the State. The pictures in the video are from Grass Valley to Beckwourth and just about every camp or village in between. When Gold was discovered in California in 1848 it started a mass expedition to the territory in search of great wealth. I hope you enjoy the pictures and the video I just love visiting the Historic mining towns and sites .

2 Replies and 106 Views LDMA vs GMAA  106  2 Started by  rickthomason@gmx.com 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

2 Replies and 93 Views Maps  93  2 Started by  rickthomason@gmx.com HH Engineering in Orlando, Fl sells 'Gold Maps' purported to contain info from numerous geological/mining/ gov sources-with GPS coordinates. I know I could get most of this myself, but at 29 bucks for a state map with hundreds of sites, GPS, Ghost Towns, it sounds enticing. Has anyone purchased from these folks and if so, are you satisfied Thanks in advance Rick

8 Replies and 884 Views Prospecting permit  884  8 Started by  johnrmckeel@gmail.com I am new to prospecting and plan an outing to southern Nevada in the next few weeks. I wanted to go to one of the GPAA claims and explore. I read in my copy of the Mining Guide that I am required to have the guide with me, my membership card to GPAA and a 'Prospecting Permit'. I don't recall this permit. I assume it would have come in my membership package but can't find anything. How can I obtain one Thank you.
