0 Replies and 231 Views Information on Triple D and M claim  231  0 Started by  gabrielmcguffey@gmail.com Hello, I was wondering if anybody from the staff has any information on the Triple D and M claim in Ventura County, CA on Piru Creek. It is the closest claim to my house and there is no information under the directions or prospecting tabs in the claim directory. I haven't received my member package in the mail yet but was hoping to read something on the claim in the meantime.

16 Replies and 8433 Views Angeles National Forest  8433  16 Started by  MSohlberg The 2014 GPAA Guide (Lastest version, I believe) lists Angeles National Forest near Azusa California as Public Land on which prospectors can pan or sluice for gold.  However, upon visiting the website for that national forest, I find this statement:  'All mining operations (location of mining claims, prospecting, and mining, including panning, sluicing, and dredging) under the 1872 Mining Law are prohibited within withdrawn areas of the Angeles National Forest.  Public Law No. 57...

2 Replies and 452 Views Does anybody read these?  452  2 Started by  pbhunter4 I'm giving someone a chance with my book. If you don't buy the cheap book with many color pictures and secrets and clues and just a good read and go find it. I will find it this summer, fairly positive. link below to my facebook where you can purchase the future best seller. Ha 'greenhorn' kind of misleading; I'd challenge Tom Massey any day to outpan him with REAL fine gold not what he calls fine gold, he can't catch it, but I think it means a greenhorn to this forum.

4 Replies and 510 Views Claim map  510  4 Started by  rae38@nau.edu 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...

4 Replies and 496 Views Melting gold  496  4 Started by  j.gray.17 I was smelting my gold and using propane but it didn’t heat up enough so I changed from propane to map gas and the gold seems like it melted into the flux. I’m new to this so I’m not sure exacly how to redo it. My flux went from black with a gold center to black with a greenish center that I assume is the gold mixed with the flux.

1 Replies and 390 Views gps Ingress Point and Center of Claim  390  1 Started by  Petekottke Perhaps some of my veteran prospectors can help me. The claim page gives me two gps coordinates (center and ingress points) How do I find the other 3 corners I don't want to cross over into someone else's claim or private property. Here is a claim I am interested in going to this month - GOLD PROSPECTORS 1, 2 & WARRIOR I can get my hands on a GPS unit if it makes it easier.
