Feel free to add any of your essential tool(s) list that you think we should carry in the store. We are looking to beef up our inventory and get everyone more of the tools and products they need to bring home the gold!

1 Replies and 150 Views No Tips - No Tricks - Just a question  150  1 Started by  ipscone@msdsite.com hmmm... Gold has existed for millions of years. Waters where gold is found today, is almost never where it was millions of years ago. So, wouldn't it be reasonable to believe that most gold is not in most current waters That it exists where you'd likely never think to look Does that mean we have to think like a gold nugget (rock) :-)

3 Replies and 236 Views wet you pay dirt before sluicing  236  3 Started by  sergprinting@sbcglobal.net As funny as it sounds, Gold dose float, so always wet your pay dirt before putting it in the sluice, otherwise your gold could float away and into the next persons sluice. I've learned a lot in a year! Newbie, Sergio

16 Replies and 1725 Views GMT  1725  16 Started by  pyrography10178@yahoo.com I recently purchased a Whites GMT. It came with the 6'x9' Double D coil and a 8'x14' Sierra Gold Max coil. I took it out to the gpaa claims in the Morristown area. Towards the end of my testing and it was getting hot. I put the big coil on. I got up on this hill overlooking a wash and started detecting. I got this positive zip zip sound. I scraped the loose gravel with my boot and still got a good signal. I scraped down another 2-2 1/2' and found a .04 gram flake of lead. I wish now I had starte...

1 Replies and 360 Views sluice with Miller table deep well & rubber V mat  360  1 Started by  sergprinting@sbcglobal.net Hello all, i thought I would share this with all, I'm not pro at getting the fine gold, but I made a sluice frame that doubles as a miller table and also made a sluice with acrylic that goes on top of the miller table frame, so i made this acrylic sluice as a miller table on top with a deep well about 1/3 & the rest i put a shallow V rubber mat that slides in & out under the miller table part for easy clean out, and as you know the miller table is a great way to seperate the gold from the black...

2 Replies and 339 Views Docs Detecting  339  2 Started by  scubajimwood@gmail.com I read an interesting article on equipment and tools by Kevin Hoagland in GP Mag. He mentions Doc's Detecting as a source to order Bates boots and some other items. I tried the phone number on their website and just get an automated message that does not sound like a business. Does anyone do business with Docs and can you advise how I can contact them for an order Thank you.

To keep my AU chasing dreams alive, I’m needing to come up with a clever solution. Does anyone know of a hopper set up, which I might mount over the Raptor which could feed into the destruction chamber, or something similar I usually bring material home and put it through the Raptor in my yard, so it doesn’t re...

2 Replies and 663 Views gold hog piglet flare  663  2 Started by  randy82271@gmail.com I bought the piglet flare a while back. No matter how i set it up i lose alot of dirt and water out of header box. Any suggestions on how to keep the dirt in the box. Ive tried all kind of angles and even turn water down to almost nothing. we usually shovel feed at a slow rate but no sooner than start dumping dirt starts coming off the back. It gets real bad if just dump a shovel and let it work down. Any ideas would be appreciated.

6 Replies and 1809 Views Newbie Question  1809  6 Started by  Andrea.leigh01@gmail.com So to introduce myself, my husband and I just moved to the central valley from the southern coast of California. In our search for things to do we've started gold panning and recently sluicing. Have talked to the guys in Jamestown and have gone out on fee based trips, watched lots of youtube, to get the hang of things and seem to be doing ok at it.... so thought we'd join this and see what else we can learn. We have kids and were looking into purchasing land to 'relax' on and not necessaril...

2 Replies and 17056 Views Gold Prospecting  17056  2 Started by  mulubishaj@gmail.com I am new to this forum but I have been reading a lot of what people have been posting. I have learnt a lot. I own a small company and we managed to acquire 2400 acres of land. Long story short, we have been finding rocks and geological deposits that point to the presence of gold and other mineral deposits in the land. I have collected samples and taken pictures of rocks, soil, land scape and I am hoping someone could look at them and help point me in the right direction.

3 Replies and 1415 Views The gold was Supposed to be there according to the indicators.  1415  3 Started by  guy@guydewhitney.org I just got back. A spot too far downstream from a gold source can have virtually all of the nice indicator rocks and amazing looking gravel bars and still not have an appreciable amount of gold because gold is 5 times heavier than anything else in the river except platinum. So there will be a bottom edge of nice prospects that fail to pan out If you have found wonderful indicators but little or no gold it would be well to work further and further upstream. Unless you reach a point where the i...
