2 Replies and 2274 Views Breaking up caliche  2274  2 Started by  matthew.n.edwards.2@gmail.com Hello everyone, I wanted to see what the group might recommend for breaking up caliche prior to running it through a drywasher. I was hoping for some tips that would not require purchasing large/heavy/expensive equipment. I am mostly looking for methods that would be better suited for a hike in trip.   Thanks in advance, Matt

14 Replies and 7864 Views Phone GPS in the field  7864  14 Started by  joestas A lot of people think you need Wi-Fi to use a cell phone GPS in the field.   That is not true if the app will download maps 'GPS Waypoints Navigator' for android will do that.   In fact I recommend you turn off Wi-Fi and Data to conserve your Phone battery. If left on the phone keeps checking for a connection and will drain the battery in no time. I have a couple of old phones I keep around just for the GPS.   I have some 1000 plus waypoints on my phone. I mark and label ev...

3 Replies and 33049 Views club claims and or your own?  33049  3 Started by  blackchipjim    I was just wondering how many of the members here go strictly club claims or have their own in addition. I would think if you have your own piece of the pie you would be too busy to even bother with the club claims. Heck for that matter you probably don't even post here except for entertainment value Eh

5 Replies and 11846 Views Mining claims on GPS  11846  5 Started by  mtbassman@msn.com Hi guys. I don’t know how many of you uses your GPS for accessing claims but I emailed onX maps here in Montana because they make land ownership software for your Garmin. I asked them if they could make a layer in their program with mining claims. They responded that if enough people asked for it they would make it! So if you could go to onXmaps.com and go to support and contact them about this layer, maybe we could get them to do this. I know it would be really handy in the field for knowi...
