0 Replies and 538 Views Directions To Idaho Claims (Boise County)  538  0 Started by  jimwhite Hello! Am planning a trip to Eagle, Idaho around the end of May 2019. Would like to take my daughter, son-in-law, and, 2 grandkids to the His & His 1 & 2 claims for some fun family prospecting. In my mining guide, there are no directions to these claims. If someone can give me directions to these claims so I can plan the trip well in advance, I would appreciate it very much. Thanks! And, safe and prosperous prospecting to you all! Happy New Year!!!

7 Replies and 4315 Views Do not throw out your cons, pack them out for further processing  4315  7 Started by   I have been telling people for years they are throwing out their gold by panning the cons out in the river. The pan is the first process, the secondary may be a miller table, and the third might be a retort. I went down to my claim where I let another man dredge, but I instructed him to pan in a large tub and keep what he got. He relied on one of those gold wheel devices so all his cons were left in the tub, perfect for me. I got the cons out and processed them my own way and pulled out ...

I am brand new and decided to buy a membership on a whim because I have always had a interest in gold and panning for it.

I don't have high expectations and my job allows me 35 days where I don't have to work when I am in the State so I plan on being as acti...

8 Replies and 2440 Views gold rush expeditions  2440  8 Started by  Kenaslan So for the fun of it, I was looking at purchasing a claim. Found claim from gold rush expeditions. How can they set a price on a claim without any studies No geo report no assay no pictures of the inside. Has not been worked in decades. They say a couple of guys could dig it out in a day or two. It would take an excavator a day. Also no exact location is given or ID number. What gives. They sound like snake oil salesmen.

1 Replies and 694 Views old abandoned claims  694  1 Started by  Kenaslan I thought I read somewhere that a claim to be kept active, the claim owner must have intent on mining it and do so yearly. What about all the claims that have been sitting without any work for decades. Are they still valid as long as the payments are made every year, or does the fact that there is no intention of ever working them make the claim invalid
