7 Replies and 582 Views Locations to Pan Research??  582  7 Started by hey there folks. Just curious as to how everyone goes about finding places to pan and prospect at. Other than the national forests. Not having a vehicle to access alot of out of the way spots is a huge hinderance at the moment. I live in an area where knocking on doors isn't accepted very well. I put a few adds on facebook and one on craigslist recently but no hits as of yet. We have our chapter meeting on Wednesday of next week where I can do some chatting with other active members in the regio...

7 Replies and 2648 Views Trip to Little Miami  2648  7 Started by Went to Georgia to do a little highbanking, got snowed in for several days, was unable to do any highbanking. Got back home to Ohio and had that itch I just had to scratch, so I went to the Little Miami. About 3 hours of running, ended up with some nice gold and a big fossil. Will be grateful to anyone who can help identify the fossil.

3 Replies and 366 Views Miller Table Surface  366  3 Started by I obtained a 12'x30' slab of natural slate, about 3/8' thick, and was considering using it to build a Miller Table. The flat surfaces appear to be along the natural cleavage; basically smooth, but with very slight ripples. It is not perfectly smooth and flat like a chalkboard. There is a monument/gravestone business near me that would have the machinery to plane the surface flat, plus saw off the rough edges. Would this be recommended, or would the 'natural' slate surface be superior Th...

1 Replies and 507 Views K- River camp ground  507  1 Started by Spent the day 9/21/2019 at K-River campground, awesome campground, friendly people but no gold. Tried several places on the river. Lady at the camp said several people have panned there with no luck. Also, the photo of camp is outdated. Nice place to relax, get your feet wet. Easy to find. No thumbs up from me.

3 Replies and 1183 Views Minnesota  1183  3 Started by  twins.fan91 I am a retired Marine who recently moved back to Minnesota and I am interested in prospecting here.  I live in Lake City and would like to find places close to me.  I have read about Nugget Lake in Wisconsin quite a bit, but have not been there yet.  I know about the gold rush on the Zumbro river near Oronoco and that that area is on private land.  I am assuming that prospecting would be better above the dam creating Lake Zumbro, but do not know if there are places for the pu...

4 Replies and 529 Views Greenhorn AND disabled in NoCo  529  4 Started by Greetings all. I apologize in advance, this is somewhat a sob story....I am a disabled vet, alone and with PTSD that keeps me in the mountains and in nature and as far away from people as possible. I cant climb or dig with a shovel, nor can I hike or walk very far. I also am being made to suffer with massive pain issues due to my allergies to pain medications. All I'm really looking to do is be in and around creeks and streams etc, and learn how and where to do some light panning, where I can f...

3 Replies and 491 Views fine gold recovery  491  3 Started by I have only been in to gold hunting for about a year. I always wanted to try and finally took the leap at the Alabama gold camp. The camp is mostly fine gold in courtesy piles. And a little bigger sometimes in creek but harder digging. My question is. I run a high banker and classify to 3/8 thru my header box. Would it be best to classify to a little bigger than gold you will find and bypass all the other larger stuff And take a chance of missing that rare nugget. Think blasting o...

7 Replies and 637 Views Colorado Update, HIT IT NOW  637  7 Started by Ron and Stacy Kennedy came up from Texas and wanted to work some claims so he gave me a call and I took him down to the FLW, BOSS, and Snake City Claims. It was a good trip and a decent amount of flood gold and one small nugget found. I myself just went down with shovel, classifier, bucket and pan. Ron carried down a small sluice and we worked two different areas in a bend of the claim. It wasn't the best spot on the river but at least I knew it had color and the scenery is beautiful. No rattles...

5 Replies and 669 Views Gold Ore  669  5 Started by I have a benchmark 15 ton punch press that I made a crusher for to crush rocks down for tumbling. I can make it crush to powder also. Is it worth it for me to get Gold Ore to crush and try to get the gold out or is it just to fine for the beginner with limited resources. I have sheets of aircraft aluminum and I made my own sluice box. I bought the burlap, minor moss and the 'V' groove matting along with a set of riffles. I have been running the sluice at 7 degrees right now in basement into a ...

5 Replies and 588 Views Ohio Panning  588  5 Started by I have found some Gold in the western part of Ohio under a super magnifier but nothing that the kids seem to enjoy. Are there still places that you can go and find flower Gold or just a bit bigger I was going to buy some pay dirt just to let them have fun but since Im a member I would rather go and hunt for it on a claim which to me is part of the learning and adventure. Thanks for your time and any guidance is better then none.

I want to let you know the conditions of Colorado are not good at all for even rafters, they are dying weekly, and the main melt hasn't even really begun yet. I was at two claims that we would normally work this time of year just 4 weeks ago and the water was so high, fast, and full of debris it was impossible to even approach. Three weeks ago I was in Telluride and saw that the head of the San Miguel Ri...
