3 Replies and 16561 Views Mat-Su Valley Alaska prospecting  16561  3 Started by  dkehler@yahoo.com I'm relatively new to the gold prospecting but have a pretty good grasp on technique. It helps I grew up in a rock hound family. I live just below Hatcher's Pass in Wasilla Alaska. I have tinkered up on the Little Sue but have not had much success. Only a frog fart of fairy dust. Any suggestions to areas up there would be appreciated. More to my reason for this post. I have been looking at claim maps and other information regarding the Knik Glacier valley. Friday Creek in particular. I see two c...

4 Replies and 982 Views Property Access  982  4 Started by  perry.neal@outlook.com Greenhorn here... I've noticed on the properties pages other GPAA members giving tips to remember to bring your membership card and permit. Great tip, however how do I obtain obtain or show a property owner that I am a member and how do I obtain a permit. I understand these may seem to be simple and fundamental to experienced GPAA members but to be honest... I cannot find this information anywhere on the site and do not want to drive from Virginia to Ohio only to be turned away.... Thank you ...

11 Replies and 1665 Views No Properties in Virginia  1665  11 Started by  dogmom@k9dejavu.com I just joined and was shocked that there are no properties in Virginia to explore. Where I live near Goldvein Virginia there are a lot of old gold mines in the area. I expected there would be some sites within the state. I also would like to find a person to go out with. If you live in Virginia and need a prospecting buddy contact me. I have found few areas that are public land near old gold mines, I used a metal detector around one today but the metal trash was impossible to work around. I wil...

6 Replies and 879 Views Online Mining Guide  879  6 Started by  taylorconley90@gmail.com Hello all. I am just getting back into prospecting after many years. Last time I was a GPAA member there was only the annual membership where I received the paper mining guide. This time I opted for the monthly which only gives me access to the online claim guide on which I only see center of claim and ingress points. Is there a way to find out the coordinates of the corner markers of the claims I would like to avoid accidentally claim jumping.

First: Do you need to have a gold claim on your own property or property owned by family (that you have permission to use) From what I saw researching online, I shouldn't need one, but again, I don't know much and may have misread. ...

1 Replies and 666 Views Hoping to Hit Rock Creek riches this weekend  666  1 Started by  tobey.mcmullen@gmail.com Hoping to hit a few of the claims in Placer and Nevada county this weekend. I only own a few things to do this. I purchased a Garrett panning kit with a 15 inch 1/2 inch classifier and gravity trap, with a 8 inch gravity trap. It had some things to keep the gold in and a set of tweezers with a magnifying glass attached. Was like 40 bucks I think. Then I purchased a 6 inch trap for finer stuff. I hope to hit this claim first. Has anyone hit this one that can give me some pointers I was going...
