29 Replies and 36862 Views Hello Prospectors and Miners    36862  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.

5 Replies and 286 Views Non members camping on claim/ no markers on migg1-4  286  5 Started by  tisbrew@hotmail.com Today I went to the Migg1-4 near Rochford SD. I couldn't even pull in to the parking area. there were out of state 6 big (I mean big) 5th wheelers trucks taking up the the area. All out of state and not GPAA.

The gentleman I spoke with stated a GPAA member told them they couldn't camp there due to it being a claim. I myself lean toward the national forest rules. Anyway just asking on...

10 Replies and 7250 Views LDMA Claim, Leadville, CO  7250  10 Started by  fritzj8@yahoo.com 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,

Hopeful the LR2000 replacement article has more information coming in the next update regarding the 'help' not found in the MLRS software by me. Is it possible to get a better source for items like 'how to search by GPS coordinates' I have no idea where that info might be on the GOV site.

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 ...

After spending half a day reading property reviews, I was aware that there's not enough photo documentation to the actual trouble spots of the roads. Gates were another topic along with signage. I know signs can attract as many people as they repel and gates are revenue intensive. The point being, I would like to volunteer some of my time along with what little ability I may hav...

5 Replies and 592 Views General area maps  592  5 Started by  waugh1198@gmail.com 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.
