6 Replies and 764 Views Plumas County Claims  764  6 Started by Fires have made these claims pretty much inaccessible, and if the fire doesn't get you the smoke will. Will be awhile, maybe next year before you can get to them. This includes Joyce in Butte County. The fires there are extreme and we don't want to hamper fire fighters. They have enough on their plate. Hwy.70, Hwy. 89, Bucks Lake Rd., Antelope Lake Rd. Gennesse and Taylorsville Rds. from Beckworth and Portola. Stay safe, Thank You just a heads up.

I filed my report on the Gold Basin AZ Bahde 10 &11 Claims. I will go back and add more pics and perhaps even a more detailed report with more information. Afterwards I began to search other claims to read other reports and I was really shocked to see hardly anyone taking the time to file their reports and the few I saw gave little info or intel. I vividly recall many members requesting it, so I was really ...

At that moment I was hooked, the idea of pulling gold out of the ground with my own hands and work is something i will never tire of. I went to the Libby Creek Recreational Gold panning area and spent the next 2.5 weeks on and off working and meeting new people, everyone had something to teach and I loved every min...
