(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...

0 Replies and 48 Views Pod Casts  48  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.

They are not expecting to renew the lease and the three of them would like to give the club members exclusive rights to the 80-acre claim. The claim is on both sides of the road.

3 Replies and 125 Views How to find groups  125  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.

4 Replies and 285 Views Website. I gotta ask  285  4 Started by Maybe i've lost my 55 year old mind but i'll ask anyway. Is the login 'remember me' broken or am i doing something wrong. Having to log in every time is a pain. I've been a programmer and robotics engineer for over 30 years and do much web work for the medical industry. I would be happy to help your web coder if they would like, in exchange for a cup of coffee. I'm also only 25 miles north of the Temecula office. Just asking/offering. Doug

2 Replies and 414 Views Stay limits on claims  414  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 993 Views How long can you stay on a claim  993  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 168 Views Cajon Summit Group Ingress Question  168  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...

Loooonnnnggg piece, or should I say several together. Gorrilla tape a funnel to the end. Take a piece of cord tie it in a tree high enough to let gravity take the water where you want it. Pour it in slowly. Might even set up another bucket with a small spigot to feed the hoses so you just keep feeding it with water instead of taking the water buckets out 300ft. lol, just...

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 ...
