16 Replies and 2197 Views Same Claim 2 Owners 2 Names?  2197  16 Started by I was researching the Nancy's Gold claim today and I found something funny, the exact same 30 acre location is also 1/2 of a 60 acre claim called Holy Moly, both claims are listed as valid surface Placer claims with different owners. How is this possible The most easy way to see it is on The Diggings site.  Click the map link to open a larger map with clear claim lines. Or am I missing something Here's 'Nancy's Gold' Here's 'Holy Moly' on t...

3 Replies and 406 Views Colechy  406  3 Started by High in the Mountains of Colorado, I found a creek that has a 6 foot high bank on one side it consists of 6 inch round rocks and a black very hard material possibly volcanic ash It will crumble if hit with a pick but is very tough, there is maybe 12 to 24 inches of sandy clay on top. I tried to pan the sandy clay layer and have found no gold or black sand just blond sand in pan. There has been much mining just above here, could this be spent coal from the steam engines they used to operate th...

2 Replies and 393 Views incorrect coordinates and little data  393  2 Started by comparing coordinates in 50th anniversary edition and GPAA web site (blue moon, smith placer claims) coordinates are close but not exact. The 2014 edition gives townships ranges and sections were the 50th edition and the web site only gives latitude and longitude and no information on driving directions. Also how do you know if a claim is still active with the GPAA and has not been taken back or has became a close claim.

1 Replies and 354 Views New N' Blue Too  354  1 Started by Hi all, I'm relatively new to prospecting, bought some pans and a folding sluice, took my first trip a couple months ago to the Arkansas River downstream a bit from Point Barr in Colorado and managed to find some gold dust using a 14' and 10' pan (didn't have sluice yet). I think I found so little and such small gold because I was going through very little material *very* slowly and was not digging very deep, but was happy to find some on my first trip and was nice to visit mountains again. N...

I am in Easley, SC and have been bouncing around location to location looking for the goods. In the two or three weeks that I have been doing this, I have completed enough research to make me feel like I was seeking a degree in geology.

2 Replies and 622 Views Silicone Mat for Blue Bowl  622  2 Started by Hi, I saw a video on YouTube by Alan Robertson about how gold seems to stick to a silicone mat. He made one and put it into a Blue Bowl and it seemed to work well. I believe he was using gold from Flower Gold Wizard. Has anybody tried this, and does it work If it does work, can one buy these mats (I am not handy at making things.) I'm interested in beach gold. Cedric McKeever
