1 Replies and 1821 Views Hoping to Hit Rock Creek riches this weekend  1821  1 Started by 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. It had some things to keep the gold in and a set of tweezers with a magnifying glass attached. Was like 40 bucks I think. Then I purchased a 6 inch trap for finer stuff. I hope to hit this claim first. Has anyone hit this one that can give me some pointers I was going...

10 Replies and 2644 Views Washington State  2644  10 Started by 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 3167 Views Arizona prospecting  3167  10 Started by 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 ...

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!!

I received some gold prospecting equipment this Christmas after a few years of being interested in going out and going prospecting. My initial plan was to get a sluce, just like the countless YouTube videos Iv watched. What I got this Christmas was a blue bowl, a standard gold cube and a mini trommel attachment. I’m trying to figure out a few things. 1) Is the mini trommel now useless unless I want to take buckets of un classified dirt and run it through the trommel at home 2) where ...

5 Replies and 1860 Views Membership Card - possession requirement?  1860  5 Started by 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 ...

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.

5 Replies and 2197 Views Dry washing near Randsburg  2197  5 Started by Hello all new guy here was considering dry washing near Ransburg California. Tried using the BLM MRLS maps to ensure I don’t go on someone’s claim.. for me it has not been user-friendly and was wondering if someone knows of a place or how to use the MLRS system. Every time I touch the map and move it it jumps to another location/state. If someone’s considering going out this weekend let me know if you would like an extra shoveler.

Two of my claims that happen to be listed in the guide have been listed as closed for non payment off maintenance fees. The small miner waiver was sent in July and recieved (certified return receipt). From what I can find out, some waivers were incorrectly entered in the system, and then MLRS automatically listed as closed. BLM says they caught most of them, but some have apparently slipped through. The issue is goi...
