(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
Hi Prospectors, I asked our Social Media Guru Paul to create this area within the Forum to make it a bit easier for me to see and respond to Members Prospecting & Mining questions. There have been a number of occasions that I have missed questions that were directed to me, this is not going to be the case any longer. I can't say that I will respond immediately because of of my schedule and the fact that there are a lot of places I travel that simply do not have connectivity. But know tha...

2 Replies and 241 Views Stay limits on claims  241  2 Started by I was curious about how long can a prospector stay on a club claim in Forest service lands. My son and I usually stay a whole summer dredging on claims we have permission to dredge on. I just recently joined GPAA, monthly for now, because we saw some interesting areas where the clubs claim is on the Middle fork Boise river here in Idaho. We usually work upstream more on friends claims, but needed a change in scenery...too many dredges up in that area. I know if your working a claim, the stay...

4 Replies and 908 Views How long can you stay on a claim  908  4 Started by A member on FB recently asked if he could camp on a claim. I said of course. Then the discussion went to for how long. Please add this in your FAQ section. Some say it’s 2 weeks on BLM and FS land. Some say it’s indefinite on a claim. some say it's 6 months. What is it I can’t find anything on the GPAA website about this. The search function does not work. Thank you. Martin Wormser

2 Replies and 109 Views Cajon Summit Group Ingress Question  109  2 Started by Sunday - May 31st, 2020 So I went today to scout out this claim and I attempted to enter via the Ingress Coordinate of 34°20'6.84' -117°25'13.54' the incline was a little steep for me and wasn't sure if this was really the way to enter, since it was ascending fairly rapidly. I was almost to the top and chickened out since i wasn't familiar with the area, the road was narrow, no room to turn around unless you back up and drive backwards or unless you get to the summit and turn around. Is ther...

Got my starter kit and was surprised to see Malakoff Diggins, a State Park on the list of properties listed (online but not in the printed guide) as a claim. I searched the forums using 'Malakoff' as my search term but found nothing so: How is that possible Do GPAA members have some exclusive rights that differ from the general public Can you prospect using more ...

4 Replies and 415 Views ?? ABOUT STAKING A NEW CLAIM FOR GPAA  415  4 Started by I am in Southern California near Camp Pendelton. Recently I was looking for a place to play in the dirt, I found a great piece of river to work. I did my due diligence and could not find any claims to the land. I am not very experienced in this endeavor but I think that this is a good spot as every time I have gone out I have found color in my pan. Again I am not very good at this yet so I may not be looking in the right spots, however each time I have gone I have tested a different spot and eac...
