(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.

1 Replies and 24 Views Tesoro Company  24  1 Started by I purchased a Shark from them and now have a 'left in batteries' problem. I wanted to contact their service department for information about possible repairs but get no answering of phone calls or replies to messages left with the company. their website still existed three weeks ago but the was no interaction with my inputs and no where to leave an email. Just curious if you have any inkling as to their current business status. Thanks in advance, Roland Shafer

4 Replies and 151 Views ?? ABOUT STAKING A NEW CLAIM FOR GPAA  151  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...

If you can save multitudes of concentrates and capture that micron, more power to you! My start, decades ago, was tweezing tiny specks, until I was laughed at by a Talkeetna, AK Potato Patch Alaska miner. He gave me a 3 oz. nugget. I graduated and was successful in finding. Fines reintroduced. Small, odd shaped gold is currently mystifying me with it's behavior when recover...

6 Replies and 614 Views Lucky Linda Again  614  6 Started by Hey Kevin, is there a way to get the coordinates for the Lucky Linda Claim From what I've read, others are accessing the claim, but I am at a loss as to what they are using to locate the claim borders. Bewildering as to why they aren't in the online Guide. Thanks from Greg in Vancouver, WA.

My plan is to camp along the road just west and center of the claim and walk to the claim. I know there is an elevation drop getting to the claim, but looking at google maps that appears to be one of my best options. Any suggestion, comments or ideas would be helpfull. I'll be metal detecting only, using a Goldbug 2, and a 6' coil. I know the road can ge...

2 Replies and 408 Views Hopeless 1 in Broadwater county Montana  408  2 Started by Hi Kevin. My name is Tom Allen and I belong to your fine club which I enjoy alot. I was doing some research around Radersburg Montana and found out that the claim Carol Ann 1 was abandoned not to long ago, it borders the Hopeless claim and I think it was 40 acres. I was actually thinking about claiming it but thought the GPAA might benefit from it more than I would. I just thought I would let you know so you could add some more land to the Hopeless claim. Have a nice day. Best regards Tom Allen
