5 Replies and 4776 Views Triple D&M claim help  4776  5 Started by  Drok625 Hello, I am a total greenie to gold prospecting, I just started this year. I went out to the claim yesterday and metal detected around for most of the day and didn't find anything. I am curious as to what areas are good for setting up a Highbanker or sluice All I found with the metal detector was a quarter from 1941 and a bunch of bullets and old cans. If there is anyone that wants to go out let me know I'd love to learn. Thanks Derik

This is really going to push the subject out in front of everyone. Only bad thing is, the story kind of leans with the salmon and many people dont fully understand how the dredging works. Its easy to see them get swayed by the libs to support bans.
