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!

4 Replies and 610 Views Be Advised: USGOLDMAPS.COM  610  4 Started by  realbillmccoy@gmail.com Just a friendly public service announcement regarding usgoldmaps.com They make claims maps for use with Google Earth. The product looks really nice but upon receipt I discovered that their data is static and from 2013. I reached out to the Contact Us email and the response was basically, don't worry about it. Claim data doesn't change very often. Uh... I call BS Asking for a refund. Wish me luck and buyer beware.

0 Replies and 291 Views We have concentrates. We just need someone who can extract the gold  291  0 Started by  david@ucvcfunding.com My boss is part owner of a pretty famous gold mine and because of this we have about 50k tons of concentrate and hard rock ore left over from the exploration stage of his project. This particular ore is known to have high concentrations of gold, silver and other PGM's, but one of the issues we're having is that normal fire assays are not picking up all the gold. Much of the gold is being washed away. We need a master assayer that can extract hard to get gold through a chemical or atomic procedur...

14 Replies and 8294 Views Phone GPS in the field  8294  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...

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 12251 Views Mining claims on GPS  12251  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...
