1 Replies and 4174 Views Fine gold recovery equipment  4174  1 Started by  jhilligoss1972@yahoo.com With all the different systems out there it is a bit overwhelming on which one is a good place to start. Blue bowls, spiral panning wheels, gold cube, mini sluices.....   I've even heard that some will mix their black sand with vinegar in a rock tumbler for 24 hrs. then combine it with salt and heat it   I'm sure each one has its pro's and con's and probably a lot is personal preference, but does any one type stand out above the rest  Ultimately after all the resea...

3 Replies and 5633 Views Want to get the kids outside away from t.v. and see the real world  5633  3 Started by  geniehall34@gmail.com I have three sons 10, 8, and 6 week old. My two oldest and wife want to go panning for gold but have no idea where to go. I am very glad the kids want to go panning, it gets them away from the t.v. You can't learn everything about life from the t.v. and internet. We live in Candler North Carolina. If anybody has any ideas where I can take the family it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

6 Replies and 12263 Views lode and placer claim overlaps  12263  6 Started by  rshafersr@gmail.com i've searched thru the BLM sites and can't find any reference to the legality of prospecting for placer deposits inside the borders of and active lode claim. i'm interested to find out if, by filing a lode claim, that gives the owner of that claim the right to ALL forms of gold deposits within the claim boundaries. if not, then wouldn't it be interesting to sample for placer and if found then file a placer claim on the same property....

3 Replies and 6213 Views Prepping my green pan  6213  3 Started by  lauriespicer27@icloud.com I saw an article on prepping a newly obtained gold pan earlier this year in the pick and shovel gazette. With my membership I received a new gold pan and would like some input as the gazette has come up missing. My wife obtained some concentrates for my anniversary present and I was hoping to get some practice in while the weather and work schedule hinder prospecting in the near future. Thank you in advance for your help and Happy Holidays. Dave
