2 Replies and 309 Views New Equipment  309  2 Started by Good evening, I just got a new piece of equipment delivered today via Amazon. I kicked the bucket so to speak on this piece of equipment. I caved in and got the Gold Rush Nugget Bucket. The bucket is not all that bad, to be honest. Albeit being a new invention there are areas of improvement. The Gold Pan its self is eh so so. But then again I have my personal preference on the type of pan. One of the major benefits though is the fact that everything you need is contained within the bucket...

0 Replies and 207 Views Paydirt  207  0 Started by I am sure that we all know what paydirt is and how it works.

2 Replies and 201 Views Equipment  201  2 Started by I have been prospecting for a bit with just a gold pan, classifiers and the like. I now have decided that it is time to add some more equipment to the arsenal. I have been going through various youtube videos dealing with the blue bowl versus the miller table and the spiral wheel. However, the reviews seem like they are split down the middle 50/50. So my question is this; which one would you recommend and why Also, in regards to the videos; if you could post some links so I can check them out, ...

0 Replies and 170 Views New Report from Colorado  170  0 Started by I went down with the BLM to our claim,'I call the walk into hell is easy, it's much harder to find your way out.' But if you want to find the good gold then you travel where most won't. Once you get there you realize it is paradise. River conditions were awful, feet higher then just a few week ago and the head of the river and snow are forming a glacier that is going to break loose at some point this summer, the main melt has not even started as of yet.

It is the closest claim to my house and there is no information under the directions or prospecting tabs in the claim directory.
