0 Replies and 2442 Views South Pass / Atlantic City  2442  0 Started by  dinruf Going to plan a week trip over to that area.  There is a GPAA claim Carol Placer.  Anyone ever work this ground and how did you do.  Also wondering if I should be exploring other areas, there is so much BLM to cover around there.  Will have 5th wheel and ATV, hopefully there is a good camping spot near the claim.

I am thinking of Gold Basin for dry washing (as well as some meteorite hunting) and was hoping to glean some tips as to what to look for in that area regarding the gold bearing gravels. I've been reading (and watching) whatever I can about it, and know that the gold is found in the gravels on top of the caliche false bedrock, which typically is 1-5' thick. Ive read that some area...

Being on the East coast of the U.S.A. it appears that Loudmine and Vein Mountain are the easiest to attend. I was wondering if anyone had any input as to which outing would be best as a first timer.

I have a Garrett AT Gold and it does good in the dry sand but anything near the wetness and it goes south REAL FAST. I knew that the Gold wasn't up for salt water like the Pro so nothing shocking. I spent 2 days at the beach and got little reward. Today I went to a local park and Scored. 37 pennies, 20 nickels, 20 quarters, 2 dollar coins, a silver ring, some foreign coins.

Right now it's a dried up riverbed that is in a DEEP canyon and runs for a couple of miles. The claim guide says that you can use a detector, dry washer, or even a sluice(I'm assuming when it rains.
