1 Replies and 7586 Views Prospecting a Creek in High Colorado -- 15 May 15  7586  1 Started by  C-17A Hey GPAA Gold Prospectors... I had cabin fever, so I decided to hit the hills and prospect/sample pan on a nice creek that flows into the Arkansas River North of where I live... I have driven by this creek dozens and dozens of times over the years.  Finally went out for about 1 1/2 hours in the snow, wind and sample panned up the creek about 1/4 mile from the road access. The day was probably up to 45 degrees, but the shade & wind sure made it feel colder... &91;url=http://s570.pho...

7 Replies and 35377 Views Finish pan preferences?  35377  7 Started by  duluthian25.zapp@gmail.com I know practice makes perfect when it comes to panning. I am curious what pans you all prefer for finish panning (removing all black sands). Eventually I would like to get a spiral wheel to help but am looking for something to put in the backpack. Let me know what you think

4 Replies and 1641 Views looking for prospectors  1641  4 Started by  brandon.n.barton92@gmail.com Looking for fellow prospectors in my area (Humboldt, Trinity and Siskiyou counties). Go out alone a lot to the claims in those areas and after a few encounters with bears it would be nice to have another set of eyes lol. Even if schedules can not line up to go as a group then it would be cool just to meet like minded people who have that gold fever. bnb.prospectinggmail.com instagram: doctorofdevils

8 Replies and 18107 Views Arkansas Group Colorado  18107  8 Started by  jennielovescars@gmail.com Hey ya'll. I wanted to know if anyone has ever been to the Arkansas Group in Colorado and if there is any gold and/or anything I should know about the claims or area. I will be visiting around late June and just wanted to see if this claim was worth poking around or not. This group is the only one I'm going to be near and I have never prospected in Colorado before so this will be a fun new adventure!

1 Replies and 1111 Views Panning Banned in SD for 2019?  1111  1 Started by  Upnort Heard from a disreputable source that even panning has been disallowed in the Black Hills due to a tree disease. No soil turning what so ever, exception would metal detecting. Planning to head to the Husker claim next month and need to confirm that panning is still allowed there. Read somewhere on this forum last year that 12v high bankers where allowed in the Black Hills, at least most places. Is that still true Thanks, couldn't find a specific subcategory to place this post. Byron

1 Replies and 6644 Views Anyone else using the Gold Hog Flowpan? Tips? Tricks?  6644  1 Started by  wa7nxi@yahoo.com Been using the flow pan for a couple months now, it works really nice and is a great upgrade from my grizzly pan & nugget bucket I was previously using. It certainly moves a lot of material and no classifying is really nice. I visited several claims in AZ and CO with it last month (July '18) and had pretty good luck with it. In the dry AZ desert I used a flat rubbermaid storage tray that is about 2'x3' and 6 inches high or so and filled it with a few gallons of water and made my own portable...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
Pans! by charlotte49er on Apr.18, 2013, under Gold Prospecting I don’t know how many times people have come up to me and said, “All you really need is a pan to find gold.” Technically that’s true. All you really need to find gold is a pan. At some time, even with machinery, you will probably pick up a gold pan. Maybe not at the start, but more than likely at the end. However, gold is a numbers game. The more dirt you process, the more gold you will fin...

15 Replies and 24365 Views Pyramid Pro Pan  24365  15 Started by  prospectorjack If anyone is considering to buy the Pyramid Pro Pan do it. I know it seems to be a little pricey but let me tell you that it is worth it. I bought one last year and I have found it to be a necessary piece of equipment that I am glad to have in my arsenal of prospecting equipment. For processing material I can just about keep up with a sluice box. For catching gold, it catches the finest of gold, I would have to say that it loses none from what I can tell. It is easy to use. It is great for areas...
