2 Replies and 2643 Views 3in Dryland dredge nozzle question  2643  2 Started by I'm new to dredging. Just bough a 3in dryland dredge nozzle from GBE Mandrel. When I run it in my highbanker with the keene pump (2in) supplying it, it blows out the nose of the nozzle. I'm wondering if it is a problem with the nozzle, or perhaps my highbanker being higher than the nozzle is the issue. (~3feet ish) I bring up the possibility of it being the gun, because when I look inside the gun at the jet itsself, its necked down to maybe 1/2' -3/4' max... And would assume it needed to be b...

1 Replies and 2022 Views Place that's easily accessible  2022  1 Started by I'm looking for a place to take my blind brother. We have reconnected after a 6 year fall out, and in that time I have been bitten by the gold bug. I live near Sacramento, and would love to take him to a place to pan. I'd prefer a gpaa claim, as I'm a new member. But anywhere would be ok. I tried the bear river at the campground my first time, which I know is accessable, but I heard it's just fine gold, and I got skunked my first time there (which honestly was my first time prospecting). Any and...

I'm not really that green as I have been prospecting since i was a kid. I have explored much of Montana but there's still so much to discover and explore here and near my area of Hamilton. My local area is what i would describe as the hole with no gold but surrounded by it, which literally couldn't be far from the truth! There are areas to prospect around here but usually you would have to go through other people'...
