2 Replies and 142 Views Mining guide coordinates  142  2 Started by  Kenaslan In the day and age of modern GPSs that use STANDARD coordinates the latitude and longitude system went out with the dinosaurs. Does anyone know of a good app to change the outdated longitudinal coordinates to every day Garmin GPS The Garmin Montana 610 that I use, uses standard WGS 84 hddd°mm.mmm' not a system that was used at the turn of the century. The use of non standard,outdated coordinates makes me want to not renew my GPAA membership

14 Replies and 7348 Views Angeles National Forest  7348  14 Started by  MSohlberg The 2014 GPAA Guide (Lastest version, I believe) lists Angeles National Forest near Azusa California as Public Land on which prospectors can pan or sluice for gold.  However, upon visiting the website for that national forest, I find this statement:  'All mining operations (location of mining claims, prospecting, and mining, including panning, sluicing, and dredging) under the 1872 Mining Law are prohibited within withdrawn areas of the Angeles National Forest.  Public Law No. 57...

1 Replies and 186 Views gps Ingress Point and Center of Claim  186  1 Started by  Petekottke Perhaps some of my veteran prospectors can help me. The claim page gives me two gps coordinates (center and ingress points) How do I find the other 3 corners I don't want to cross over into someone else's claim or private property. Here is a claim I am interested in going to this month - GOLD PROSPECTORS 1, 2 & WARRIOR I can get my hands on a GPS unit if it makes it easier.

With a bucket, shovel, sluice box in hand, I trekked to my spot and did some digging. As I was walking out with my gear, I noticed panners walking in with a unique backpack. I didn't get a picture of their pack, but I can describe it. It looked like an external backpack. It had two vertical pouches, one on each side of the area that housed a 5-gallon bucket and sluice box. That area for the bucket was intentionally void, specificall...

7 Replies and 3737 Views Do not throw out your cons, pack them out for further processing  3737  7 Started by  Hannover   I have been telling people for years they are throwing out their gold by panning the cons out in the river. The pan is the first process, the secondary may be a miller table, and the third might be a retort. I went down to my claim where I let another man dredge, but I instructed him to pan in a large tub and keep what he got. He relied on one of those gold wheel devices so all his cons were left in the tub, perfect for me. I got the cons out and processed them my own way and pulled out ...
