9 Replies and 1652 Views Greetings and Hallucinations!  1652  9 Started by  jimmygibbswk@gmail.com Hello all! Jimmy here and I'm a brandnew, know nothing prospector that's looking to learn. I attended the GPAA Expo at the Puyallup Fairgrounds last weekend and received a great tutorial from Rick on panning and I'm hoping to learn about a few other things. First: Do you need to have a gold claim on your own property or property owned by family (that you have permission to use) From what I saw researching online, I shouldn't need one, but again, I don't know much and may have misread. ...

I'm also job hunting and have a heavy science background with experience in qualitative and quantitative analysis. Does anyone know an efficient way to tap into the Mining Lab field I'm having problems finding the right search terms to find jobs like that. Any tips/referrals would be appreciated. Thanks in advance! Mary

1 Replies and 1401 Views Hoping to Hit Rock Creek riches this weekend  1401  1 Started by  tobey.mcmullen@gmail.com Hoping to hit a few of the claims in Placer and Nevada county this weekend. I only own a few things to do this. I purchased a Garrett panning kit with a 15 inch 1/2 inch classifier and gravity trap, with a 8 inch gravity trap.

10 Replies and 2265 Views Washington State  2265  10 Started by  micah.hanley@gmail.com Hi all! New member/new prospector here from Skagit County in Washington. Safe to say that I'm a pretty terrible prospector thus far. I've found a tiny bit of gold, but I've still got a long way to go. Anyone here from Skagit County I'd be interested in meeting up with someone experienced who I could talk to. Lunch is on me! Happy to meet you all, Micah

10 Replies and 2422 Views Arizona prospecting  2422  10 Started by  Stancalavan1964@gmail.com Moved down from Washington state about a year ago and have joined a couple of different clubs to learn this new way of mining. I want to buy a dry washer but haven’t found enough gold to even consider putting the money out for a new piece of equipment. Tried many different ways and have tried to stay out of the main washes. But nothing worth while. I also have tried my monster 1000 and have filled up a snuffer bottle with small bb’s. I wish I could spend an hour or two with someone who can show ...

2 Replies and 1039 Views Membership renewal thru Authorized reseller?  1039  2 Started by  usarianskiff@gmail.com Hello! I've been a member almost a year now and my membership is due to expire soon. I see now that GPAA resellers offer membership deals, so I'd like to go through one of them, but I'm nervous it will mess something up since they're selling it as a new membership rather than a renewal Thank you!!

5 Replies and 1637 Views Membership Card - possession requirement?  1637  5 Started by  butchpetty@yahoo.com Was surfing through the forum and passed by this statement in one of the post: “make sure you have your card in possession.” The problem: I’m in Arizona but from Texas. I recently joined, in Arizona, and my mailbox is in Corpus Christi. I’m two days away from checking out my first GPAA claim. I just assumed that the official membership confirmation info that I received from GPAA on my phone was all I needed to have handy. In my opinion that is as good if not better than a “card”. Am I right or ...

5 Replies and 1811 Views Helena, Montana Area  1811  5 Started by  Copter1doc@yahoo.com Trying to learn the rules of the area. Would like to team up with someone for a little knowledge, but also to put my wife’s mind a ease from going out alone ( limited phone coverage a times). I’ve got detectors, sluice and the will to learn, get dirty and wet when necessary. Most of all have some fun and get a little GOLD. Not looking to get rich just put some color in a pan. Would like to learn to trust my detector for gold also.
