1 Replies and 1092 Views Strategies to restrain those who are in office from controlling and limiting our freedom to prospect !  1092  1 Started by  Leonson   I have a hatred for the need of certain people to always try and control our lives and all in the name of FOR THE GOOD OF THE PEOPLE crap !   I am not trying to stir up trouble but I am wanting some input to an idea. These people need to understand that their constant meddling in other peoples affairs can be turned against them. I have read that the majority of our GOD GIVEN RIVERS that are rich in gold are the ones that these people ALWAYS  target to stop us from dredging or...

7 Replies and 1732 Views Snake Season again, be careful!  1732  7 Started by  Hannover   As a Texan I am super cautious about snakes and thought I would be the last person to ever get bit, WRONG. Heading to my truck off the claim I heard a hiss but no rattle and felt a sting on my leg. I thought maybe a wasp or hornet had gotten in my jeans and stung me right above the boot level so I checked my jeans and there was nothing there so I continued to my truck and drove home. While driving I noticed my vision was as if I was looking through a fog, that and I felt terrible. So whe...

I’d rather not have them clog up my list of forums if I am denied read rights. How can I block these from showing up in my forums list I see the arrow yes, but I would rather not have to click that every time I log in. Thanks

6 Replies and 1391 Views New member, help with claims/places to go in central California  1391  6 Started by  Tbone13 Hey everyone, glad to finally be a member of the GPAA! When I was growing up I went with my grandparents every weekend to the Greeley Hill area to look for gold. My grandpa would dredge and me and my grandma would pan and sluice. We didn't strike it rich but we got gold every time we went out. I've been trying to get started prospecting again but it's little bit intimidating. I've spent hours looking at online claim maps looking for unclaimed areas to try out. It just feels like everything ...

2 Replies and 2172 Views Learning to read the river  2172  2 Started by  Hannover Learning to read the river can be very frustrating for new prospectors but there is a simple trick that will help you get on the gold.    Take a metal detector and walk back and forth across the river, when you get a good hit stick some sort of marker on that site, and then follow that signal up and down the river because what you are looking for is a line of black sands, your gold will be in that line. A great deal of the time places I thought would be perfect I found nothing yet fr...
