0 Replies and 113 Views Rock crusher  113  0 Started by  Petekottke I’m interested in building a rock crusher using chains as my rock pulverizer. I found a few utube videos to guide me. Perhaps I can get a few tips before I start my project. Any suggestions about what type or quality of material to use. Or can anyone guide me to a website with more info. Thank you

5 Replies and 448 Views Handheld GPS  448  5 Started by  jdebroux Hey there fellow prospectors. My wife got me membership for Christmas and Im in the midst of planning a few trips to some of the local claims. It dawned on me that I will probably need something that will be able to tell me my current location. I want to avoid inadvertently digging on property that I don't have any access to. With that being said, can any one out there recommend a modestly priced, handheld GPS that is able to cache loations/coordinates, provide a map and has way point to way...

Is there a certain speed I should feed the Cube Should I feed it fast to keep it feed or slower to let it run some of the sand off How do you get the air bubbles out of the matting out in the field I tried just using the pump and hose that came with it but it seems like it doesn't get the bubbles out.

3 Replies and 15700 Views Where to sell Antique Equipment  15700  3 Started by  bjlcbarr My Dad was a collector of antique mining equipment 40-50 years ago. His yard is practically a museum of 100 year old rock crushers, small gas engines, miners picks, etc. He also has some antique assay equipment like button molds, crucible and scales. I have decided it needs to sell to pay for his assisted living. What is the best magazine or online marketplace for selling this stuff There used to be a couple of annual mining equipment shows years ago. I couldn't find info online. Thanks

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
Which do you think is better at recovering fine gold, the Gold Cube or Blue Bowl and why  I have owned and used the Blue Bowl for several years now, and can really appreciate how much fine gold it recovers.  However, I don't like the fact you need to wash your concentrates first or else the water gets really cloudy, which makes it very hard to see what you are doing.  This process can take a lot of time and water to accomplish.  Unfortunately, I have only use...

2 Replies and 510 Views Traveling with equipment  510  2 Started by I live in New England and travel quite a bit, and I'm constantly asking myself 'how do I get my equipment out here' I have a kit that I use here at home that condenses into a pack, and carry my stream sluice which is great. I also own a hard rock claim North of Wickenburg which requires a whole different set of tools. My issue is do I ship my sluice Check it as a bag and risk TSA destroying it Should I rent equipment from a local shop Any ideas

11 Replies and 45072 Views vehicle recommended for prospecting  45072  11 Started by  blackchipjim  Hello all, I guess this is the best place to ask this question. I am going back to prospect some of the areas I have been researching by map. I just wonder what your  opinion is on vehicles to go into the desert and mountainous regions of arizona. I had rented a suv last time and was leery of some of the sandy washes i encountered. I was going to rent a jeep wrangler if for nothing else but for it's tires and ground clearance. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks

9 Replies and 29067 Views Recommendations for handheld GPS unit?  29067  9 Started by  MtnPipr Heya All, So I have been reading on the Claim Directory that folks say to buy a handheld GPS unit instead of relying on the cellphone.  Given that my AT&T iPhone hardly ever gets receptions in the mountains, I can appreciate that recommendation.  Trouble is, there are a *ton* of units out there ranging from very little to crazy money. Any members care to weigh in on what would work for finding the ingress and center of claim coordination for the GPAA claims that are posted on thi...

5 Replies and 16374 Views Miller Table Setup Help  16374  5 Started by  goldhammer I just won a Jimbo's Gold Miller Table kit, including pump.  Tried contacting him through his website and have heard nothing back in a couple of weeks.  No instructions are included, but I figured out the assembly from the slide show on his site. Looking to find an initial setup as far as flow and angle to run it at.  Any thoughts are welcome, as this will be first experience with one.

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
I am looking at the Gold Cube and I am wondering which combo works best There is the Cube with the Classifier Plate or the Cube with the Desert Fox Trommel. I am more interested in the quality of processed material than the quantity of material processed although quantity is a factor. If anybody has used the Desert Fox I would like their input as to its performance and durability, especially when it is with the Gold Cube.
