8 Replies and 3315 Views Arizona Prospecting  3315  8 Started by Good evening, I bought a new Royal explorer drywasher and have been trying to dial it in on my back porch. I found a spot near Morristown that has pretty good fine gold. I brought a sample bucket home to play with. Dried it all out and my first run got 5 small specks. I ran the material again and found nothing. Decided to do a half a pan of the same material and found another 7 small specks that the drywasher missed. I am running the blower on idol so I know that I am not blowing the gold out....

4 Replies and 3023 Views Ore feeder build/design  3023  4 Started by Hey Guys I need some help here. I have built a 3.5' x 7.5' gold concentrating shaker table similar in design to the MBMM design and I have it working well. The one area that I am finding challenging is building an automatic ore feeder for the table. I feel that the table should be capable of processing about one ton an hour. I have a good selection of metal fabrication/ machining equipment for a build but I believe in the KISS principle in anything I build. I would have included a picture but ...

Table is level, etc. Will continue to pursue the fine gold. I don't care for basic panning figured either the DF or BB will give me faster results. Again, thanks guys.

3 Replies and 2174 Views Desert Fox  2174  3 Started by Tried everything, no luck. My paydirt is so concentrated, almost like dust. Tried even heaver, concentrate no luck. Followed instructions in handout, still no luck. I am convinced, in order to retain gold, the concentrate has to be nuggets size gold, rather than small fine gold. I would question the video's that show gold running to the top and dropping in the little basket. At this time, would not recommend the Desert Fox. Anyone who has had had luck processing small gold, please let me know.

6 Replies and 3119 Views Membership card  3119  6 Started by Hi all, I’m a new member in the so cal area. I tried my best to find the answer to my own question but need some help. I just joined and I am a college student right now, so I took the monthly payment option for the membership. On the webpage, it does show that it doesn’t include a membership card, but I have access to the claims etc. I’ve seen you need a guide, and your membership card with you while prospecting. So how can I gain a membership card Any help is appreciated. Thank you
