Has anyone ever tried checking these cuts for possible veins or exposed gold bearing material. Do you think that these guys working these road construction areas in the past ever uncovered gold I am tempted to pull off in a safe area and hike onto these areas si...

1 Replies and 2965 Views Moab Claim 1 Information - Is there even gold?  2965  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...

3 Replies and 4447 Views Want to get the kids outside away from t.v. and see the real world  4447  3 Started by  geniehall34 I have three sons 10, 8, and 6 week old. My two oldest and wife want to go panning for gold but have no idea where to go. I am very glad the kids want to go panning, it gets them away from the t.v. You can't learn everything about life from the t.v. and internet. We live in Candler North Carolina. If anybody has any ideas where I can take the family it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

3 Replies and 4943 Views Prepping my green pan  4943  3 Started by I saw an article on prepping a newly obtained gold pan earlier this year in the pick and shovel gazette. With my membership I received a new gold pan and would like some input as the gazette has come up missing. My wife obtained some concentrates for my anniversary present and I was hoping to get some practice in while the weather and work schedule hinder prospecting in the near future. Thank you in advance for your help and Happy Holidays. Dave
