10 Replies and 1346 Views Program for finding coordinates on a map?  1346  10 Started by I need advice please. I’m new to the GPS coordinates thing and need to know what program you all use to locate claim boundaries I can find the egress point and center point by clicking on those figures here on this site but the rest is confusing to me. Thanks a lot.

5 Replies and 1131 Views Membership Card - possession requirement?  1131  5 Started by Was surfing through the forum and passed by this statement in one of the post: “make sure you have your card in possession.” The problem: I’m in Arizona but from Texas. I recently joined, in Arizona, and my mailbox is in Corpus Christi. I’m two days away from checking out my first GPAA claim. I just assumed that the official membership confirmation info that I received from GPAA on my phone was all I needed to have handy. In my opinion that is as good if not better than a “card”. Am I right or ...

1 Replies and 818 Views 3830-2  818  1 Started by Shot story, won 3 claims in May and had a chance to check only 2. Didn't know that I had to file a 3830-2 by Sept. 1st. I know what I have to do now, but has anyone heard of an appeal working If not, anyone interested in helping to stake claims let me know. I would consider putting them under GPAA use also.

5 Replies and 1134 Views Helena, Montana Area  1134  5 Started by Trying to learn the rules of the area. Would like to team up with someone for a little knowledge, but also to put my wife’s mind a ease from going out alone ( limited phone coverage a times). I’ve got detectors, sluice and the will to learn, get dirty and wet when necessary. Most of all have some fun and get a little GOLD. Not looking to get rich just put some color in a pan. Would like to learn to trust my detector for gold also.

5 Replies and 1248 Views Dry washing near Randsburg  1248  5 Started by Hello all new guy here was considering dry washing near Ransburg California. Tried using the BLM MRLS maps to ensure I don’t go on someone’s claim.. for me it has not been user-friendly and was wondering if someone knows of a place or how to use the MLRS system. Every time I touch the map and move it it jumps to another location/state. If someone’s considering going out this weekend let me know if you would like an extra shoveler.

4 Replies and 881 Views Claims closed in error  881  4 Started by If you are holding any claims, get on MLRS and check the status. Two of my claims that happen to be listed in the guide have been listed as closed for non payment off maintenance fees. The small miner waiver was sent in July and recieved (certified return receipt). From what I can find out, some waivers were incorrectly entered in the system, and then MLRS automatically listed as closed. BLM says they caught most of them, but some have apparently slipped through. The issue is goi...

0 Replies and 787 Views Seeking experience  787  0 Started by Hey guys! I'm curious if there is anybody else from rock springs, green river WY or close enough to go out with. I'm 100 new to this but super excited to learn. You can only watch so many videos and read so many books before it's time to just go do it. I would love to find somebody that would let me tag along with them to show me the ropes and throw some experience my way.

0 Replies and 1131 Views Coker Creek  1131  0 Started by Living in New Orleans the closest places for me to prospect are AL, GA., TN., I did some panning in NC. earlier this year and found a little. Was going back in Dec. and while looking online many articles referenced a GPAA claim on Coker Creek in TN. The articles were written in 2019 and the claim is not listed in the 21 Mining Guide so I am assuming that the GPAA no longer has the claim. I was wondering why and if it is not in private hands might I get the coordinates so I could check out the l...
