5 Replies and 5219 Views Bad Prospecting Ethics  5219  5 Started by I was working the Placer Creek claim in New Mexico yesterday and came across this area where someone had dug along and beneath the Forest Service trail that accesses the claim from Hopewell Lake.  This is along Forest Road 356A.  Not only does this conflict with the standard guidelines of not digging into stream banks ~ one of the conditions the Forest Service is clear about when obtaining authorization to prospect on this claim ~ it's pretty stupid and disrespectful to cause damage to...

1 Replies and 3804 Views Let other members know when and where you're going prospecting.  3804  1 Started by Today I went out to the Maricopa group claims detecting. I ended up having a dead battery when I was getting ready to go. I was on the AzAu2 claim and barely any cell phone reception. I was able to call Bill Southern and he made sure that the right people knew my predicament. I started getting calls from other gpaa members asking where I was. I finally was able to get out of the claims with the help of Randy Brite. He knew exactly where I was and rescued me. I'm glad my wife and I joined such an...

3 Replies and 6900 Views Arizona desert prospecting  6900  3 Started by Anyone have any tips or tricks to find a little gold in the desert. I have been working the claims in the little San Diego area and haven’t found a thing. Was hoping to purchase a dry washer at some point but until I can find a little color I think I will hold off on that. Been working the smaller washes, sides of the washes, and in between the washes. I guess I don’t know we’re to look. Thanks for any tips Stan

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
Next time you're at Wally World add these items to your list.   Children's balloons, fishing line/string or twine & split shot lead sinkers. (Less than $5.00 total, and it will probably last you all season.) Find a spot in the creek where you want setup equipment then go up stream a bit. (Anywhere from 50' to a 50 yards depending on the stream.) Take about 3ft. of twine string fishing line. Stay away fro ribbon, it floats. (Actually you want about 1 1/2' longer than the stream is dee...

6 Replies and 8474 Views Fine stream gold extraction  8474  6 Started by I found a decent amount of fine gold caught up in sand in a stream. I just got a blue bowl but cannot get the gold to settle properly. It keeps going over the edge of the center hole. My partner made a jig out of pvc but still needs work on getting it to work good. What is the best way to refine the fine gold out of the river sand Help is appreciated....thank you much. Michael

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...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
Saw an interesting Youtube video a bit ago. Guy took a lemon sized smooth quartz stone from a gold bearing river and crushed It using a steel mallet and t-shirt. As he broke it up, he checked for gold veins and found none, but panned out the crushed rock and found what appeared to be nearly 0.5 grams of nice gold flakes. Anyone else ever tried that with good results
