Are there places to rent equipment out there since I live in NY and cant prospec...

8 Replies and 1055 Views Gold Prospectors 1, 2 & Warrior (San Diego, CA)  1055  8 Started by I went to GOLD PROSPECTORS 1, 2 & WARRIOR twice for 3 hours and found only nails and bullets so far. So I got few questions to save some time in the future. - Does this area contain any metal detectable gold Does it worth trying there with metal detector - Are there any other trails besides the one which starts at the picnic area - Does anyone plan to go there soon I could use some company. FYI: I'm 33 and I'm new to gold prospecting.

2 Replies and 438 Views Keene power sluice  438  2 Started by So I put together a 2” highbanker/ dredge combo using all Keene products. Keene A52 sluice box, hopper, dredge riffles, stand, Honda GXH50 motor with p90 pump on it. I am mainly going to use it as a dredge. My question is how much drop do I put on the box and how much flow should I have going through the box for the best recovery of gold I’d post a video of the set up running but I don’t see that option available here.

The pictures in the video are from Grass Valley to Beckwourth and just about every camp or village in between. When Gold was discovered in California in 1848 it started a mass expedition to the territory in search of great wealth. I hope you enjoy the pictures and the video I just love visiting the Historic mining towns and sites .
