1 Replies and 325 Views Question about basic rules for working claims  325  1 Started by  wgmccarthy99@gmail.com Hey there, I'm a new guy that's excited to work some of the claims around my area and beyond! 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. I went to a claim today and was able to find a high bench up from the river that I wanted to work. Is this allowed I would be taking down buckets to the river to run through my sluice. For some reason I remember reading a rule that sounded like it said I could...

I would like to meet up with fellow prospectors/rock hounds to enhance my knowledge, learn better techniques and explore the east coast (mostly my area of New York - Putnam County). I only have limited weekends to enjoy life with peace of mind in this wonderful fashion. Any help, tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

2 Replies and 591 Views Legal Equipment on a GPAA claim in Alaska  591  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 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
