14 Replies and 10849 Views Newbie Finds First Nugget With Dry Washer in AZ!  10849  14 Started by  cchipster Hi guys!   I love that I joined GPAA a month or so ago and have really been hitting it hard!

This time, thanks to the good folks at A&B Prospecting (No affiliation) in Mesa and Prescott AZ, I have it all correct. And found my first nugget in my Gold Duster Dry Washer today! Not to mention, good clean o...

9 Replies and 6088 Views Garrett Product Complaint  6088  9 Started by  crashcrain@gmail.com Recently I purchased two Garrett products I could care not to use again. First was a small aluminum sluice box with slits cut into the aluminum instead of real riffles and miners moss underneath. It would fill the small slots with fine gravels almost instantly and everything else would wash out of the sluice. The other complaint is about the Garrett Gold Guzzler snuffer bottle. Instead of coming to a cone like most it has a top sided inside lip which traps fine gold making it impossible for you ...

7 Replies and 6092 Views clean up claims please  6092  7 Started by  timothyhipwell New member and fresh prospector, I was excited to go out to the nancy claim and find some color. Got there to find a lot of garbage. I mean trash! I found some fines and flake but was very disappointed to see the state of this claim. I will be bringing an extra garbage bag out next time and ask anybody visiting this claim to do the same. The place was awesome and will be back again. Thank you to everybody that keep these claims available for us to use.

2 Replies and 4092 Views Newb Questions  4092  2 Started by  captain  I was wondering. I want to go to Vein Mt. outing in June. I realize that you have to work a 4 hour shift daily, but when youre not, are you allowed to pan or  sluice on your own Can you draw the dirt from the provided paydirt or do you have to find your own It would seem that panning in the river would be pretty well picked over by now. Thanks Guys.
