0 Replies and 469 Views FORREST FENN TREASURE  469  0 Started by  pbhunter4 I know a lot of people have been looking for treasure in the wrong place according to Dal's site (friend of Forrest Fenn}. Many, many people are looking for it in Yellowstone. You can read a cheap book and narrow down the location or keep throwing away money like looking in the wrong places like Yellowstone. Yellowstone is a no go, get the book. Forrest Fenn's book is great but it won't lead you to shiny dime. My book will help, get the book, save a bunch of money. https://www.facebook...

If you don't buy the cheap book with many color pictures and secrets and clues and just a good read and go find it. I will find it this summer, fairly positive. link below to my facebook where you can purchase the future best seller.

4 Replies and 1005 Views Claim map  1005  4 Started by Ok so I just joined and was wondering if there is an online user friendly map of all the claims. I see you can search an area online and get claims, but you have to go through every one to figure out where they are. Is there a spot on this site where the claims are mapped out with names so it's easier to search. I plan to spend the next month or two driving from Mammoth Lakes Ca. To Tucson and hitting our claims and doing other prospecting along the way, so just would like a nice user friendl...

4 Replies and 746 Views Melting gold  746  4 Started by  j.gray.17 I was smelting my gold and using propane but it didn’t heat up enough so I changed from propane to map gas and the gold seems like it melted into the flux. I’m new to this so I’m not sure exacly how to redo it. My flux went from black with a gold center to black with a greenish center that I assume is the gold mixed with the flux.

The claim page gives me two gps coordinates (center and ingress points) How do I find the other 3 corners I don't want to cross over into someone else's claim or private property. Here is a claim I am interested in going to this month - GOLD PROSPECTORS 1, 2 & WARRIOR I can get my hands on a GPS unit if it makes it easier.

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 ...
