29 Replies and 32761 Views Hello Prospectors and Miners    32761  29 Started by  khoagland@goldprospectors.org
(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...

3 Replies and 475 Views guest workers?  475  3 Started by  timothykpaulus@hotmail.com Has GPAA ever considered a program to link GPAA members looking for a different experience with small scale mine operators. There are lots of us from the east that vacation out west that would be willing to provide free labor in exchange for the experience of being on a real operation. GPAA's role could be as simple as providing the forum for the parties to connect and maybe develop a liability disclaimer for members to sign that protect the mine operator. Just an idea to throw out there that mi...

11 Replies and 1079 Views CA beach gold  1079  11 Started by  Docbart92 Just curious if there is any information on running a recirc system to get beach gold in California I’ve tried looking it up and it’s just a bunch of old pages with old information and even looking it up on CA gov websites doesn’t have anything in black and white saying you can’t. Just want to make sure I’m not breaking a law that may or may not exist since nothing is easy to find when it comes to California.

1 Replies and 139 Views “Where’s the Gold” feature in Gold Prospectors Magazine  139  1 Started by  realbillmccoy@gmail.com Hi Kevin, I’m new and have only been around long enough to receive two issues of Gold Prospectors Magazine. The March/April 2019 edition contained a feature you wrote, titled “Where’s the Gold” that I thought was excellent. In my humble opinion, occasional success is what will keep members engaged and attract new blood into the hobby. And the ability to efficiently located viable ground is key to having a good time and also one of the most difficult problems for the new prospector. ...

2 Replies and 450 Views claims and drones  450  2 Started by  blackchipjim Hello Ken, I was reading your exploits on research of the claims with drones and sympathize with your frustrations. If I may be so bold is to ask what brand were you using. I have a dji spark and was a little hesitant to use it in the desert to research the claims because of the same problems you stated in the pick and shovel gazette. You can PM me if it is out of order to ask you questions of paticular products that you use in the field. Thanks for all your work here at GPAA.

They are proposing legislation tthat would totally ban all motorized and gravity suction dredging in Washington State. It had it's first reading in both houses yesterday 01/17/2019. We need to get the word out and get everyone to write to their legislators to get this stopped as soon as possible.

2 Replies and 310 Views Mining Guide Claims  310  2 Started by  jimwhite Hi Kevin, I am a GPAA member and noticed a claim in my mining guide (Dickinson 2) that has a Member Report from an LDMA member of the same name. Since it is in my mining guide, is it safe to assume that I am allowed to go on that claim Guess I'm not clear on how the 2 different memberships relate to one another. Thanks for the clarification!

1 Replies and 1055 Views Gold fever episode.  1055  1 Started by  stananvergie@aol.com  Was searching for an episode where a fellow named Ralph/ I think. He was showing how he processed his concentrates. Found in a secret spot near L. A. California. He worked under a carport next to the house and had awesome amounts of gold. Also mentioned giving black sand for around the rose bushes. It was close to the episode we talked about not to long ago ' The Concrete Jungle'.
