Is it safe to handle Arsenopyrite does one need gloves, a mask, or should I not even bother with the stuff I got freaked out when I identified the mineralization I found as Arsenopyrite, have never heard of it before but really don't want Ars...

I’m located in West Virginia and I know that it’s been said there’s no gold in WV. But I find that hard to believe. Gold has been found in Ohio and in Virginia don’t see how it skipped WV. But anyway just wanted to introduce myself. Just ordered a Gold Bug Pro from Kellyco last night. Look forward to meeting some of you and finding gold. See ya around

I’m brand new to the gpaa but have been prospecting for a few years now. I’ve recently went through a pretty bad break up and I’m off work for the rest of the month. So what better of a time to go out and dig. Was curious what states out west where still able to be prospected and or what claims I should check out through the gpaa. I would only be bringing a river sluice and pans. Since I will most likely end up be sleeping in my car I won’t have much...

3 Replies and 869 Views Separating very fine gold  869  3 Started by  huskerjk1@gmail.com Earlier this spring I went to a Colorado placer site and brought back some pay dirt that i ran thru a sluce box . I tried panning, the Blue Bowl and I have a Black Magic setup and still am having issues separating the very fine flour type gold without losing it. I seem to loose the gold before the black sand. I use dishwasher drying agent and have a 45 magnet. Just can't seem to get the gold. Any suggestions without spending more money on more gadgets Thanks.

Not only was it close to the creek (<50ft), which can create unhygienic conditions for us all in the creek, it was in what looked like the leftovers of a dredge operation that would otherwise be a good pla...
