2 Replies and 79 Views New to Prospecting- Oregon  79  2 Started by  robertdmcgee@gmail.com I have been going through the prospecting forums for claims in the State of Oregon. By what I have read, there aren't too many and finding very little color to make it worth while. My main concern is the accessibility of the GPAA claims in my State. 2WD vehicle as well, so that has to be taken into consideration as to where I can go. I have panned in SD in the area of Deadwood back in August, spoke to BLM there where I can pan and I had a lot of fun. 2.73g isn't too bad for a first timer. I...

I remember seeing some sort of list of rules to follow on claims, but can't find it anymore. I also wanted to ask one thing in particular.

2 Replies and 487 Views Legal Equipment on a GPAA claim in Alaska  487  2 Started by  dsevernsgrant@gmail.com I have a quick question reference legal mining equipment in the Chugach National Park Alaska. The land is federal and specifies prospecting with hand equipment only. The discussion does not reference private claims in the park. So does this limit us to hand equipment only on a GPAA claim within this park or should I contact The Park Rangers I will contact the claim owner as in this one case I know who it is. This is not always the case. Thank you Daniel.

I did not buy it for prospecting, but after a few rockhounds and one friend who used to be in mining came out, I have been looking at it with new eyes. I know there were two gold mines above my property the last closed either late 50s or early 60s. I also know the markers for gold are there and the land is virtually untouched. And it's covered in multi-layers of magnetic black sand. So I have been panning samples i brought into town with me (during this co...

I am trying to plan a trip for my family to give prospecting a try. I was wondering if someone could suggest the best place for a family of greenhorns to give it a go. Also since I am sure many people go to the leased or owned sites is there really any gold left there to find Thanks Rod
