4 Replies and 212 Views Mining olan  212  4 Started by I have recently staked a claim now it is time to put together a working plan. The claim is in NM along an arroyo. I understand about mapping the roads and structures utility pole etc. can the are to be worked is less than 5 acres. Is there a way to word my plan so I do not have to put up a huge bond to dig holes and prove the claim has enough gold. I am good with a pick and shovel but I need to move more dirt than that to really evaluate the whole claim. So I will need an excavator .

I rockhounded a little bit and was stopping into a shop to buy a rock hammer and saw a pan sitting there. At that moment I was hooked, the idea of pulling gold out of the ground with my own hands and work is something i will never tire of. I went to the Libby Creek Recreational Gold panning area and spent the next 2.5 weeks on and off working and meeting new people, everyone had something to teach and I loved every min...

3 Replies and 262 Views Dry washing near Randsburg  262  3 Started by Hello all new guy here was considering dry washing near Ransburg California. Tried using the BLM MRLS maps to ensure I don’t go on someone’s claim.. for me it has not been user-friendly and was wondering if someone knows of a place or how to use the MLRS system. Every time I touch the map and move it it jumps to another location/state. If someone’s considering going out this weekend let me know if you would like an extra shoveler.
