I’m located in West Virginia and I know that it’s been said there’s no gold in WV. But I find that hard to believe. Gold has been found in Ohio and in Virginia don’t see how it skipped WV. But anyway just wanted to introduce myself. Just ordered a Gold Bug Pro from Kellyco last night. Look forward to meeting some of you and finding gold. See ya around

I’m brand new to the gpaa but have been prospecting for a few years now. I’ve recently went through a pretty bad break up and I’m off work for the rest of the month.

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 3 )
I am a new LDMA and GPAA member and I have to say this is the one of the most lame forums I have ever seen. There is virtually no new information about claims either GPAA or LDMA. The catalog of information is about worthless as no new information has been published in what appears to be months to mostly years. I want to get started prospecting, but most of the information is out dated or non existent. Why is there so little information for new members As it stands for newbie on the east s...

3 Replies and 686 Views Separating very fine gold  686  3 Started by  huskerjk1@gmail.com Earlier this spring I went to a Colorado placer site and brought back some pay dirt that i ran thru a sluce box . I tried panning, the Blue Bowl and I have a Black Magic setup and still am having issues separating the very fine flour type gold without losing it. I seem to loose the gold before the black sand. I use dishwasher drying agent and have a 45 magnet. Just can't seem to get the gold. Any suggestions without spending more money on more gadgets Thanks.

3 Replies and 629 Views Taking Care of Business while prospecting  629  3 Started by  carenann@gmail.com Hello! I am new to prospecting and new to GPAA but having a great time so far. Recently I found myself on a claim out in the Sierras with no immediate access to facilities. I was grossed out when I saw a very shallow 'pit' covered in used toilet paper between the parking lot and the creek. Not only was it close to the creek (<50ft), which can create unhygienic conditions for us all in the creek, it was in what looked like the leftovers of a dredge operation that would otherwise be a good pla...
