21 Replies and 11796 Views Geology  11796  21 Started by  tpleibel@gmail.com I have not been doing this long; but I have learned that knowing some basic geology would help.  I have been trying to find a class at one of the local colleges and can not find one to take. Go figure, only 20 colleges within 30 miles of me.  So does anyone know of a good source of videos or maybe books to learn the basic geology for reading a terrain in the field.  Or telling one stone from another.  I had this way back in 4th grade but have forgotten a lot and never did lea...

4 Replies and 978 Views backpack for panning  978  4 Started by  Petekottke@gmail.com Yesterday I went to a public area to do some stream digging. With a bucket, shovel, sluice box in hand, I trekked to my spot and did some digging. As I was walking out with my gear, I noticed panners walking in with a unique backpack. I didn't get a picture of their pack, but I can describe it. It looked like an external backpack. It had two vertical pouches, one on each side of the area that housed a 5-gallon bucket and sluice box. That area for the bucket was intentionally void, specificall...

1 Replies and 315 Views Barstow desert conditions  315  1 Started by  Petekottke@gmail.com I've been out to to the desert a few times and had fun prospecting. Right now it's March and we are getting all of our rain. How long does it take for the soil to dry out before I can dry wash the material I'm really interested in going to the Barstow claims, but I don't want to waste my time and gas if it's too wet.

2 Replies and 704 Views We have concentrates we just need someone who can extract the gold  704  2 Started by  david@ucvcfunding.com My boss is part owner of a pretty famous gold mine and because of this we have about 50k tons of concentrate and hard rock ore left over from the exploration stage of his project. This particular ore is known to have high concentrations of gold, silver and other PGM's, but one of the issues we're having is that normal fire assays are not picking up all the gold. Much of the gold is being washed away. We need a master assayer that can extract hard to get gold through a chemical or atomic procedur...

3 Replies and 559 Views GRE Claim size too large?  559  3 Started by  Kenaslan Just got an email from the infamous GRE (Gold Rush Expeditions) trying to sell me a Lode Claim here in Montana. (side note - nobody should ever NEVER buy from them). The claim is a Lode however they state that it is 20 Acres. How can they do that Please correct me if I am wrong, but as I understand it the maximum size for a lode claim is 1500 feet by 600 feet, that is nowhere near 20 Acres. I am not an attorney in my mind this should invalidate any claim they are making as it is against the...

3 Replies and 723 Views Mining guide coordinates  723  3 Started by  Kenaslan In the day and age of modern GPSs that use STANDARD coordinates the latitude and longitude system went out with the dinosaurs. Does anyone know of a good app to change the outdated longitudinal coordinates to every day Garmin GPS The Garmin Montana 610 that I use, uses standard WGS 84 hddd°mm.mmm' not a system that was used at the turn of the century. The use of non standard,outdated coordinates makes me want to not renew my GPAA membership

Many, many people are looking for it in Yellowstone. You can read a cheap book and narrow down the location or keep throwing away money like looking in the wrong places like Yellowstone. Yellowstone is a no go, get the book. Forrest Fenn's book is great but it won't lead you to shiny dime. My book will help, get the book, save a bunch of money. https://www.facebook...

4 Replies and 732 Views Claim map  732  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 634 Views Melting gold  634  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.
