(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...

5 Replies and 6643 Views LDMA Claim, Leadville, CO  6643  5 Started by I am trying to find someone who has visited the LDMA Claim in Leadville, CO.  I am considering upgrading to an LDMA membership, and this is the only claim I would be able to use.  I don't want to waist thousands of dollars on an LDMA membership if the claim is not any good.  GPAA told me there are no hosts there, which might say a lot about the claim.  I appreciate anything you can tell me.  Thanks,

0 Replies and 107 Views General area maps  107  0 Started by This from a thread elsewhere here. A suggestion of a national map giving a general location of claims and areas. Or even state by state would be a great addition. Could be linked to the state pages in the property page in the on-line guide, or a section in the members only page area. Would help members when planning a trip, as to what's in the area they're headed to, instead of sifting through the guide, be it on-line or hard copy.

5 Replies and 296 Views Three Fault  296  5 Started by Weather permitting, the first week of January I'm going to give the Three Fault claim a good working over. I'll be using a Goldbug 2, 6.5' coil, I'm going to be camping on the claim and spend four days there. I've read all the reports posted and just wanted to know if you or anyone had any more information to add. I can use my 10'coil if needed to get a little bit more depth but I'm hoping there is the real small gold there too that the Goldbug with the 6.5' coil can find. Looking at google maps...

2 Replies and 257 Views GPAA to build a .kml file of all claims for Google Earth?  257  2 Started by Has the GPAA management thought of creating a .kml overlay file for google Earth we could all download so that we wouldn't have to manually put in all the claim coordinates ourselves for areas we are interested in This would save much time and make finding remote claims easier, as well as being sure to be prospecting on the actual claim itself... as you know, the signage for many claims (not just GPAA) is often missing.. I have not built a .kml file myself but I don't believe it is very compli...

As I have time I am adding the GPS coordinates for the GPAA claim corners into Google Earth as an overlay, in the areas where I prospect. You recently had an article on this. The GPAA book has the claim corners for each claim, but I don't see them here online in the individual property descriptions, only the ingress and center of claim coordinates. Am I missing something, or are the corners purposely left out here in the properties section Also ...

0 Replies and 104 Views Pod Casts  104  0 Started by love the pod casts. I look forward to every one. They started out weekly, then about the end of March it went to every 2 weeks, then monthly, now we haven't heard a new cast since July 4th. You do alot for us prospectors, so I'm not complaining as much as I'm suggesting maybe getting some staff (gpaa) or state directors, or just other prospectors do some of the casts, so we the listeners get more content. Hearing from 'ol timers' is what we need.

3 Replies and 187 Views How to find groups  187  3 Started by Is there a forum for get togethers I want to find people who know the areas better than me. I want to also meet new people who i can learn from. I am learning the geology of gold and how to read areas but someone who knows the better places to use the goldbug 2 vs sluicing and whatnot would be beneficial at this stage of my prospecting adventures. I live in maricopa but there isnt squat to legally prospect here so im willing/forced to travel.

2 Replies and 501 Views Stay limits on claims  501  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 1392 Views How long can you stay on a claim  1392  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
