2 Replies and 3924 Views Lucky 13 in Plumas County. page CL-59  3924  2 Started by  xyoda07x Hey there fellow miners! I'm new to the GPAA and am researching for my first trip as a member.  I'm looking for some info on 'lucky 13 - CAMC298534 (A), page CL-59 in the book. I'd like to plan the trip in the next couple weeks. the book has no info, so comments on findings, terrain, campsites and what kind of gear can be used would be a lot of help not to mention greatly appreciated. Not set on going to this claim but would like to spend a week in NorCal looking for color......

2 Replies and 1919 Views Newby in CA - Permits?  1919  2 Started by  Kentuck Howdy, I signed my son and I up with GPAA mainly because he has some interest in doing some gold panning. I think it would be fun and a great opportunity to do something together and get him away from the stinking computer and video games! One question I have is, in California do you need some kind of permit to just go out and do some panning/prospecting   Thanks

9 Replies and 6140 Views Garrett Product Complaint  6140  9 Started by 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 6160 Views clean up claims please  6160  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 4138 Views Newb Questions  4138  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.
