4 Replies and 1057 Views backpack for panning  1057  4 Started by Yesterday I went to a public area to do some stream digging. With a bucket, shovel, sluice box in hand, I trekked to my spot and did some digging. As I was walking out with my gear, I noticed panners walking in with a unique backpack. I didn't get a picture of their pack, but I can describe it. It looked like an external backpack. It had two vertical pouches, one on each side of the area that housed a 5-gallon bucket and sluice box. That area for the bucket was intentionally void, specificall...

1 Replies and 363 Views Barstow desert conditions  363  1 Started by I've been out to to the desert a few times and had fun prospecting. Right now it's March and we are getting all of our rain. How long does it take for the soil to dry out before I can dry wash the material I'm really interested in going to the Barstow claims, but I don't want to waste my time and gas if it's too wet.

2 Replies and 772 Views We have concentrates we just need someone who can extract the gold  772  2 Started by My boss is part owner of a pretty famous gold mine and because of this we have about 50k tons of concentrate and hard rock ore left over from the exploration stage of his project. This particular ore is known to have high concentrations of gold, silver and other PGM's, but one of the issues we're having is that normal fire assays are not picking up all the gold. Much of the gold is being washed away. We need a master assayer that can extract hard to get gold through a chemical or atomic procedur...

3 Replies and 665 Views GRE Claim size too large?  665  3 Started by  Kenaslan Just got an email from the infamous GRE (Gold Rush Expeditions) trying to sell me a Lode Claim here in Montana. (side note - nobody should ever NEVER buy from them). The claim is a Lode however they state that it is 20 Acres. How can they do that Please correct me if I am wrong, but as I understand it the maximum size for a lode claim is 1500 feet by 600 feet, that is nowhere near 20 Acres. I am not an attorney in my mind this should invalidate any claim they are making as it is against the...

3 Replies and 792 Views Mining guide coordinates  792  3 Started by  Kenaslan In the day and age of modern GPSs that use STANDARD coordinates the latitude and longitude system went out with the dinosaurs. Does anyone know of a good app to change the outdated longitudinal coordinates to every day Garmin GPS The Garmin Montana 610 that I use, uses standard WGS 84 hddd°mm.mmm' not a system that was used at the turn of the century. The use of non standard,outdated coordinates makes me want to not renew my GPAA membership

I do have a question I went to Lytle creek a couple of time to find the middle fork 1-3 (A) claim I was following the direction in the book after I  made the turn on the middle fork rd I found the road on the left but it was only a mile down the road. Today I went down the same road and went the 2.5 miles and did not find any road on the left. So what am I doing wrong or missing. I do not have a gps yet but am looking at getting one soon.

Many, many people are looking for it in Yellowstone. You can read a cheap book and narrow down the location or keep throwing away money like looking in the wrong places like Yellowstone.

4 Replies and 884 Views Claim map  884  4 Started by Ok so I just joined and was wondering if there is an online user friendly map of all the claims. I see you can search an area online and get claims, but you have to go through every one to figure out where they are. Is there a spot on this site where the claims are mapped out with names so it's easier to search. I plan to spend the next month or two driving from Mammoth Lakes Ca. To Tucson and hitting our claims and doing other prospecting along the way, so just would like a nice user friendl...

4 Replies and 694 Views Melting gold  694  4 Started by  j.gray.17 I was smelting my gold and using propane but it didn’t heat up enough so I changed from propane to map gas and the gold seems like it melted into the flux. I’m new to this so I’m not sure exacly how to redo it. My flux went from black with a gold center to black with a greenish center that I assume is the gold mixed with the flux.
