(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
My son and I are going out to Rye Patch in a couple of months. My question is this. Can someone tell me basically how far west of the reservoir we need to drive or hike to get to an area where we would have a fair chance of finding a couple of small nuggets. We have two machines a Fisher gold bug 2 and a MineLab Equinox 800 so they will find really small pieces but I would love a little direction please. Thanks, Ron

To Tucson and hitting our claims and doing other prospecting along the way, so just would like a nice user friendl...

One of the things i would like to do is a day of goldpanning. But we don't want to do this on a commercial site for tourists. Now maybe we could join some people or someone give us a tip for a nice spot, not too far from the road. We have this planned somewhere around Downieville on the 2nd of august Thanks for a reply

4 Replies and 1788 Views Property Access  1788  4 Started by Greenhorn here... I've noticed on the properties pages other GPAA members giving tips to remember to bring your membership card and permit. Great tip, however how do I obtain obtain or show a property owner that I am a member and how do I obtain a permit. I understand these may seem to be simple and fundamental to experienced GPAA members but to be honest... I cannot find this information anywhere on the site and do not want to drive from Virginia to Ohio only to be turned away.... Thank you ...
