Table is level, etc. Will continue to pursue the fine gold. I don't care for basic panning figured either the DF or BB will give me faster results. Again, thanks guys.

3 Replies and 1339 Views Desert Fox  1339  3 Started by Tried everything, no luck. My paydirt is so concentrated, almost like dust. Tried even heaver, concentrate no luck. Followed instructions in handout, still no luck. I am convinced, in order to retain gold, the concentrate has to be nuggets size gold, rather than small fine gold. I would question the video's that show gold running to the top and dropping in the little basket. At this time, would not recommend the Desert Fox. Anyone who has had had luck processing small gold, please let me know.

Tenn. and Ga. I know myself to be a “king of overkill”, by the time I build what I need there is usually a cheaper and maybe better factory model available but that will not stop me! I hope to head to Az. NV. N.M. in the spring. I see from reading here that the ground is getting pretty wet but maybe by the time I arrive it will be dry enough for drywashing. I can’t ...

11 Replies and 2309 Views Arizona Prospecting  2309  11 Started by I have been Prospecting the Arizona desert now for a couple of years with really no success. I did buy a small hand puffer, dry washer but have had no success finding ground worth using it. I have been mining in the Morris town area claims. I know there must still be some gold out there on those claims, just need a little guidance on where to look for it. I tend to migrate towards the small washes and I guess that's not where to go since I have found nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciat...

6 Replies and 2413 Views Membership card  2413  6 Started by Hi all, I’m a new member in the so cal area. I tried my best to find the answer to my own question but need some help. I just joined and I am a college student right now, so I took the monthly payment option for the membership. On the webpage, it does show that it doesn’t include a membership card, but I have access to the claims etc. I’ve seen you need a guide, and your membership card with you while prospecting. So how can I gain a membership card Any help is appreciated. Thank you

2 Replies and 1766 Views South Dakota GPAA Gold Claims  1766  2 Started by I started panning about a year ago. I live in Minnesota. I joined GPAA so I could be able to pan for gold in Blackhills of South Dakota. The GPAA mining guide 2020 edition listed Eagle Eye 1 as being near Rapid City. When I drove to Eagle Eye, the posted signs said that the claim has reverted back to private land use and GPAA members are not allowed. I did go to Husker claim near Deadwood but noticed that the site wasn't well marked. I found only one gold claim marker but it was part...
