I just felt compelled to pass along how impressed I am with the GPAA as an organization. I received my membership kit as promised (and then some) and could not have been happier with the contents and quality. Here in Idaho you've given me and my family several locations to enjoy, and wanted to thank you for giving us that opportunity! Now, on to the gold! IDGoldtailer

2 Replies and 5084 Views Better late than never, or still a pipe dream?  5084  2 Started by  Cpc1to3 My days as a prospector came about suddenly, when my wife and son presented my first gold pan and bag of paydirt for my 26th birthday (October 2014). They had observed my love for geology through stories of picking quartz out of my Uncle's Arkansas driveway, to cracking open fossilized ferns and mushrooms picked from Shadow Lake, IL. I often watched 'Gold Rush' with them, and dreamed of being a genuine miner. Not knowing of the immense world of small-scale mining, I was quick to abando...

1 Replies and 2621 Views Moab Claim 1 Information - Is there even gold?  2621  1 Started by  SteepHollow Hi all, After a trip to Arizona to dry wash before the rains, I stopped by the Moab 1 claim (page CL-159) on my way home to check it out. Having worked within 20 miles of the site as an exploration geologist for uranium I was surprised to see a gold claim there, as it is out in the sandy, silty, sedimentary lands, as far as one can see. The guidebook states that 'We had this claim tested and it gave off loots of gold flake', which really piqued my interest. I did a LR2000 search and foun...
