0 Replies and 236 Views Panning technique -- tap tap tap to clean your cons faster  236  0 Started by Many already know the basics of gold panning: stratify your material by shaking your pan left and right so that the gold sinks down. Then, you wash out the less dense material with water. And repeat. For the last little bit of black sand and gold, many people swirl the water around in a circle to uncover the gold or tip the pan forward and backwards. While this works, it takes so much time, and sometimes results in flakes getting swept too far down the pan. There's a technique you can use to wal...

1 Replies and 10273 Views Prospecting a Creek in High Colorado -- 15 May 15  10273  1 Started by 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 37072 Views Finish pan preferences?  37072  7 Started by 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

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. instagram: doctorofdevils

8 Replies and 19593 Views Arkansas Group Colorado  19593  8 Started by 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!
