(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 219 Views claims and drones  219  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.

1 Replies and 126 Views CA beach gold  126  1 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.

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 109 Views Mining Guide Claims  109  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 842 Views Gold fever episode.  842  1 Started by  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'.

12 Replies and 18351 Views Makro Gold Racer  18351  12 Started by  jlocke1970 I was curious of any input on the new Makro brand Gold Racer. On paper it looks pretty good for a novice 'nugget shooter'. I have been trying to decide on a good vlf detector for nugget hunting. I have some (but NOT a lot of detecting) experience. I have looked at the Fisher Gold Bug 2 and the Whites GMT, now I run across this Makro brand ( European , I believe). Stats look good and what I have been able to find online review wise also looks promising. Opinions Thanks ! Jim

2 Replies and 1673 Views Hi just a question  1673  2 Started by  PatrickJRyan1981 Hi I have a question I hope someone can help me. The properties listed online why do some say 0 acres and not list directions Is it because that claim doesn't exist anymore I live in Crossville TN and only see the claim in Buchanan GA. I also don't see any regulations, I have a gold hog raptor that I want to take with me and also I'm not sure where I can and can't dig.... Any help from anyone would be much appreciated.
