6 Replies and 5309 Views Mew Member  5309  6 Started by  jleamer20 Hello all, This is my first post and first time being a member of GPAA.  After watching Tom Massie for a very long time on the Outdoor Channel, and wanting to join this grand organization I was able to do so this year.  As I said I have been a fan of the Gold Fever show for a long time, but never really could afford to join the GPAA until this year.  Things have changed a bit for me over the years.  My oldest son is moving off to college this month.  My daughter is a se...

0 Replies and 1890 Views LDMA news for GPAA members  1890  0 Started by Normally I don't care as I am considering joining the LDMA. But the one word topic 'Fire' next to Scott Bar information category kind of makes me wonder. There are regular GPAA claims in that area too.  And look at the long line of Duisenburg Auction item postings. Us regular GPAA members have cash too you know

3 Replies and 4607 Views Need help with battery selection  4607  3 Started by  graminella Hello: I am building a sluice that will be fed with a Johnson 2200 GPH 12 V pump; it draws 7.5 amps.  Does anyone know reasonably priced deep cycle (or regular) battery that will run this pump for 6 hours or so.  Realistically, I will run the slice 6-8 times a year.  So, I don't know if I really need a deep cycle battery for this number of recharges per year.  Maybe I do  Thanks ahead.

After joining I started putting my stuff together and trying to work out bugs and how things run. A couple of weeks ago I took my son and finally went out to a claim.

1 Replies and 4755 Views Spriggs Property Ohio - any tips  4755  1 Started by  graminella Hello: I am planning my first visit to a GPAA site - the Spriggs property near Lucasville, OH.  I will only have about 6 hours at the site.  Anyone been there who can give some advice on a work plan.  I have a small sluice.  Since it is on a large river I am concerned if there is enough flow and drop--otherwise, shovel and pan.  Any tips on good spots that might lead me to my first nice flake or nugget would be appreciated.  Thanks

2 Replies and 3434 Views Permits  3434  2 Started by  BenjiPOTF Hi, I plan on going onto the GPAA claims to pan, sluice and metal detect. The counties I plan on visiting are in El Dorado and Plumas counties. What kind of prospecting requires permits in CA  Might seem like a silly question but I rather be safe than sorry. Also to visit these GPAA claims, do I have to get a hold of the claim owner or is that something that members can visit anytime   Thank you for your time.

8 Replies and 10792 Views Trying Out Idaho  10792  8 Started by Hi to everyone out there.  I am new to GPAA (so forgive any ignorant questions).  My son and I are heading out west in June with a final destination of Idaho to give prospecting a hearty try.  I am planning on trying out the GPAA claims while there.  I just read that you can also request a 3 day trial to LDMA once.  Are there any LDMA claims in Idaho  I welcome any advice that could help us be a little less green while working for that first flash of gold.
