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 320 Views incorrect coordinates and little data  320  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.

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.

2 Replies and 372 Views Silicone Mat for Blue Bowl  372  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
