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 5676 Views Need help with battery selection  5676  3 Started by 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.

1 Replies and 6008 Views Spriggs Property Ohio - any tips  6008  1 Started by 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 4376 Views Permits  4376  2 Started by 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.
