4 Replies and 1383 Views puffer vs drywasher  1383  4 Started by  TheRoamingRaven@gmail.com This summer I am looking for a project for my grandchildren and me to build. I found the DIY vintage plans for a depression-era puffer. This looks fun to build. My question is how does it compare to an actual drywasher in gold recovery After we build the puffer, should I purchase a drywasher to show the kids what it is really supposed to do Thanks for the in-put.

16 Replies and 2446 Views Prospecting  2446  16 Started by  donland1@aol.com I'm looking for claim-friendly location(s) to test a new magnetometer system that I developed to map now-buried former stream courses by sensing and mapping black magnetite sand deposits close to stream locations historically known to have produced significant gold. Help with digging these potentially rewarding locations also wanted. My involvement would be totally at my expense. (TopoMag project.)

18 Replies and 3417 Views Be Advised: USGOLDMAPS.COM  3417  18 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.
