1 Replies and 522 Views Hoping to Hit Rock Creek riches this weekend  522  1 Started by  tobey.mcmullen@gmail.com Hoping to hit a few of the claims in Placer and Nevada county this weekend. I only own a few things to do this. I purchased a Garrett panning kit with a 15 inch 1/2 inch classifier and gravity trap, with a 8 inch gravity trap. It had some things to keep the gold in and a set of tweezers with a magnifying glass attached. Was like 40 bucks I think. Then I purchased a 6 inch trap for finer stuff.

17 Replies and 3050 Views Same Claim 2 Owners 2 Names?  3050  17 Started by  captaindebris@gmail.com I was researching the Nancy's Gold claim today and I found something funny, the exact same 30 acre location is also 1/2 of a 60 acre claim called Holy Moly, both claims are listed as valid surface Placer claims with different owners. How is this possible The most easy way to see it is on The Diggings site.  Click the map link to open a larger map with clear claim lines. Or am I missing something Here's 'Nancy's Gold'  https://thediggings.com/mines/camc298571 Here's 'Holy Moly' on t...

10 Replies and 1361 Views Washington State  1361  10 Started by  micah.hanley@gmail.com Hi all! New member/new prospector here from Skagit County in Washington. Safe to say that I'm a pretty terrible prospector thus far. I've found a tiny bit of gold, but I've still got a long way to go. Anyone here from Skagit County I'd be interested in meeting up with someone experienced who I could talk to. Lunch is on me! Happy to meet you all, Micah

I want to buy a dry washer but haven’t found enough gold to even consider putting the money out for a new piece of equipment. Tried many different ways and have tried to stay out of the main washes. But nothing worth while. I also have tried my monster 1000 and have filled up a snuffer bottle with small bb’s. I wish I could spend an hour or two with someone who can show ...

2 Replies and 401 Views Membership renewal thru Authorized reseller?  401  2 Started by  usarianskiff@gmail.com Hello! I've been a member almost a year now and my membership is due to expire soon. I see now that GPAA resellers offer membership deals, so I'd like to go through one of them, but I'm nervous it will mess something up since they're selling it as a new membership rather than a renewal Thank you!!

5 Replies and 900 Views Membership Card - possession requirement?  900  5 Started by  butchpetty@yahoo.com Was surfing through the forum and passed by this statement in one of the post: “make sure you have your card in possession.” The problem: I’m in Arizona but from Texas. I recently joined, in Arizona, and my mailbox is in Corpus Christi. I’m two days away from checking out my first GPAA claim. I just assumed that the official membership confirmation info that I received from GPAA on my phone was all I needed to have handy. In my opinion that is as good if not better than a “card”. Am I right or ...

I know what I have to do now, but has anyone heard of an appeal working If not, anyone interested in helping to stake claims let me know. I would consider putting them under GPAA use also.

5 Replies and 858 Views Helena, Montana Area  858  5 Started by  Copter1doc@yahoo.com Trying to learn the rules of the area. Would like to team up with someone for a little knowledge, but also to put my wife’s mind a ease from going out alone ( limited phone coverage a times). I’ve got detectors, sluice and the will to learn, get dirty and wet when necessary. Most of all have some fun and get a little GOLD. Not looking to get rich just put some color in a pan. Would like to learn to trust my detector for gold also.
