4 Replies and 1124 Views Information on Triple D and M claim  1124  4 Started by Hello, I was wondering if anybody from the staff has any information on the Triple D and M claim in Ventura County, CA on Piru Creek. It is the closest claim to my house and there is no information under the directions or prospecting tabs in the claim directory. I haven't received my member package in the mail yet but was hoping to read something on the claim in the meantime.

Is it ok to just look up claimed areas and prospect the unclaimed portions 100 meters up/down stream I am new to this and I don't know if there are prospecting etiquette rules.

5 Replies and 416 Views LDMA vs GMAA  416  5 Started by 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

8 Replies and 733 Views Gold Prospectors 1, 2 & Warrior (San Diego, CA)  733  8 Started by I went to GOLD PROSPECTORS 1, 2 & WARRIOR twice for 3 hours and found only nails and bullets so far. So I got few questions to save some time in the future. - Does this area contain any metal detectable gold Does it worth trying there with metal detector - Are there any other trails besides the one which starts at the picnic area - Does anyone plan to go there soon I could use some company. FYI: I'm 33 and I'm new to gold prospecting.

2 Replies and 224 Views Keene power sluice  224  2 Started by So I put together a 2” highbanker/ dredge combo using all Keene products. Keene A52 sluice box, hopper, dredge riffles, stand, Honda GXH50 motor with p90 pump on it. I am mainly going to use it as a dredge. My question is how much drop do I put on the box and how much flow should I have going through the box for the best recovery of gold I’d post a video of the set up running but I don’t see that option available here.

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...
