3 Replies and 1010 Views Desert Fox  1010  3 Started by Tried everything, no luck. My paydirt is so concentrated, almost like dust. Tried even heaver, concentrate no luck. Followed instructions in handout, still no luck. I am convinced, in order to retain gold, the concentrate has to be nuggets size gold, rather than small fine gold. I would question the video's that show gold running to the top and dropping in the little basket. At this time, would not recommend the Desert Fox. Anyone who has had had luck processing small gold, please let me know.

8 Replies and 2050 Views 10 digits 1/2 a brain.  2050  8 Started by Hey, A GPAA member for two years. Living in NOLA I have never had a chance to use my membership. I have only prospected in N.C. Tenn. and Ga. I know myself to be a “king of overkill”, by the time I build what I need there is usually a cheaper and maybe better factory model available but that will not stop me! I hope to head to Az. NV. N.M. in the spring. I see from reading here that the ground is getting pretty wet but maybe by the time I arrive it will be dry enough for drywashing. I can’t ...

I know there must still be some gold out there on those claims, just need a little guidance on where to look for it. I tend to migrate towards the small washes and I guess that's not where to go since I have found nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciat...

6 Replies and 2027 Views Membership card  2027  6 Started by Hi all, I’m a new member in the so cal area. I tried my best to find the answer to my own question but need some help. I just joined and I am a college student right now, so I took the monthly payment option for the membership. On the webpage, it does show that it doesn’t include a membership card, but I have access to the claims etc. I’ve seen you need a guide, and your membership card with you while prospecting. So how can I gain a membership card Any help is appreciated. Thank you

I joined GPAA so I could be able to pan for gold in Blackhills of South Dakota. The GPAA mining guide 2020 edition listed Eagle Eye 1 as being near Rapid City.

I did go to Husker claim near Deadwood but noticed that the site wasn't well marked. I found only one gold claim marker but it was part...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
My son and I are going out to Rye Patch in a couple of months. My question is this. Can someone tell me basically how far west of the reservoir we need to drive or hike to get to an area where we would have a fair chance of finding a couple of small nuggets. We have two machines a Fisher gold bug 2 and a MineLab Equinox 800 so they will find really small pieces but I would love a little direction please. Thanks, Ron

Ok so I just joined and was wondering if there is an online user friendly map of all the claims. I see you can search an area online and get claims, but you have to go through every one to figure out where they are. Is there a spot on this site where the claims are mapped out with names so it's easier to search. I plan to spend the next month or two driving from Mammoth Lakes Ca. To Tucson and hitting our claims and doing other prospecting along the way, so just would like a nice user friendl...
