3 Replies and 498 Views Colechy  498  3 Started by High in the Mountains of Colorado, I found a creek that has a 6 foot high bank on one side it consists of 6 inch round rocks and a black very hard material possibly volcanic ash It will crumble if hit with a pick but is very tough, there is maybe 12 to 24 inches of sandy clay on top. I tried to pan the sandy clay layer and have found no gold or black sand just blond sand in pan. There has been much mining just above here, could this be spent coal from the steam engines they used to operate th...

2 Replies and 469 Views incorrect coordinates and little data  469  2 Started by comparing coordinates in 50th anniversary edition and GPAA web site (blue moon, smith placer claims) coordinates are close but not exact. The 2014 edition gives townships ranges and sections were the 50th edition and the web site only gives latitude and longitude and no information on driving directions. Also how do you know if a claim is still active with the GPAA and has not been taken back or has became a close claim.

1 Replies and 449 Views New N' Blue Too  449  1 Started by Hi all, I'm relatively new to prospecting, bought some pans and a folding sluice, took my first trip a couple months ago to the Arkansas River downstream a bit from Point Barr in Colorado and managed to find some gold dust using a 14' and 10' pan (didn't have sluice yet). I think I found so little and such small gold because I was going through very little material *very* slowly and was not digging very deep, but was happy to find some on my first trip and was nice to visit mountains again. N...

I am in Easley, SC and have been bouncing around location to location looking for the goods. In the two or three weeks that I have been doing this, I have completed enough research to make me feel like I was seeking a degree in geology. Anyway, I found a promising location (at least from my research of the past and current), but I am having the hardest time with my method of panning. Here is what I am dealing with: lots of black sand and...

2 Replies and 887 Views Silicone Mat for Blue Bowl  887  2 Started by Hi, I saw a video on YouTube by Alan Robertson about how gold seems to stick to a silicone mat. He made one and put it into a Blue Bowl and it seemed to work well. I believe he was using gold from Flower Gold Wizard. Has anybody tried this, and does it work If it does work, can one buy these mats (I am not handy at making things.) I'm interested in beach gold. Cedric McKeever

4 Replies and 1558 Views Information on Triple D and M claim  1558  4 Started by Hello, I was wondering if anybody from the staff has any information on the Triple D and M claim in Ventura County, CA on Piru Creek. It is the closest claim to my house and there is no information under the directions or prospecting tabs in the claim directory. I haven't received my member package in the mail yet but was hoping to read something on the claim in the meantime.

What is the difference in the GMAA and the LDMA I see events that are attended by both groups. The LD costs $4800 and the GMAA costs $155 for 3 years. I don't understand the relationship. Are the claims the same What's the deal. Should I join the LDMA Are the claims in the Mining Guide the same for both groups Which is better Thanks in advance. Rick T
