How is this possible The most easy way to see it is on The Diggings site.  Click the map link to open a larger map with clear claim lines. Or am I missing something Here's 'Nancy's Gold' Here's 'Holy Moly' on t...

3 Replies and 211 Views Colechy  211  3 Started by High in the Mountains of Colorado, I found a creek that has a 6 foot high bank on one side it consists of 6 inch round rocks and a black very hard material possibly volcanic ash It will crumble if hit with a pick but is very tough, there is maybe 12 to 24 inches of sandy clay on top. I tried to pan the sandy clay layer and have found no gold or black sand just blond sand in pan. There has been much mining just above here, could this be spent coal from the steam engines they used to operate th...

2 Replies and 224 Views incorrect coordinates and little data  224  2 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.

1 Replies and 164 Views New N' Blue Too  164  1 Started by Hi all, I'm relatively new to prospecting, bought some pans and a folding sluice, took my first trip a couple months ago to the Arkansas River downstream a bit from Point Barr in Colorado and managed to find some gold dust using a 14' and 10' pan (didn't have sluice yet). I think I found so little and such small gold because I was going through very little material *very* slowly and was not digging very deep, but was happy to find some on my first trip and was nice to visit mountains again.

In the two or three weeks that I have been doing this, I have completed enough research to make me feel like I was seeking a degree in geology.

2 Replies and 212 Views Silicone Mat for Blue Bowl  212  2 Started by Hi, I saw a video on YouTube by Alan Robertson about how gold seems to stick to a silicone mat. He made one and put it into a Blue Bowl and it seemed to work well. I believe he was using gold from Flower Gold Wizard. Has anybody tried this, and does it work If it does work, can one buy these mats (I am not handy at making things.) I'm interested in beach gold. Cedric McKeever
