6 Replies and 2871 Views opinions of access to claims  2871  6 Started by  blackchipjim   Hello to all,  I'm trying to get a read on some of the suggested routes and requirements that it  takes to get to the claims. In Arizona the rocky and be real rocky and sandy can be deep sandy in the washes. I know the rental companies say no go on off road adventures but that is a definition. I've been reading the access points that some of the gentlemen have added to the claims and the pictures are a added value to say the least. I have done off road driving before but nothing...

6 Replies and 2068 Views Trip to Little Miami  2068  6 Started by  Mistman Went to Georgia to do a little highbanking, got snowed in for several days, was unable to do any highbanking. Got back home to Ohio and had that itch I just had to scratch, so I went to the Little Miami. About 3 hours of running, ended up with some nice gold and a big fossil. Will be grateful to anyone who can help identify the fossil.

Also, tried searching but could not find instruction there either (likely my fault since there were a ton of hits on the search and I gave up after about 15 or so). Thank you in advance!

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
I am a new member here in Northern California and have been to two claims so far. Both were unmarked in any way I could find. Most notably at the entry points, No notices of federal mining claim were anywhere to be found. The BLM land office in El Dorado Hills has told me unmarked claims are considered unprotected by them. On the Lady Bug claim there is an obvious public entry point with no claim signs and on S Able Granma there is a 4x4 road to a well developed camp site that also has no markin...
