15 Replies and 23589 Views Dry washers, losing gold  23589  15 Started by  rewipe   I got a Gold Duster dry washer that I bought used a few years ago. I'm getting ready for my gold trip and bought some bags of dirt at the Gold Show. I ran them in my dry washer and then panned the tailings and found some big flakes. What I'm I doing wrong I'm digging dirt on a mountain and classify it down to 1/4 inch and pack it down to the river and run it in my high banker. I was hoping to use the dry washer on the mountain to save me some trips up and down the mountain.  I...

11 Replies and 12393 Views Sensitivity or Gain on your detector  12393  11 Started by  Nugget Shooter   Hi All, Nugget Shooter's tip for today involves setting up your detector's Gain or Sensitivity.... First to those familiar with CB Radios TX Gain is more power out and RX Gain is receive, so this said all metal detectors currently used for the most part are VLF or PI and even ZVT, but all are ruled by their RF function in that if not set properly you will miss targets. So how do you set it up     Quick and simple with PI air tune to eliminate EMI and ground balance in...

14 Replies and 9585 Views Alluvial Fan tips...?  9585  14 Started by  Zappster1 It seems like the majority of available claims are of the alluvial fan types.  Does anybody have any prospecting tips for these particular areas  It is not like there are geological markers that are easier to follow. I am getting tired of prospecting and finding nothing but sand and sweat in these areas.  I am just curious if anybody out here has any tips that might help me be a little better with my prospecting.  I am not afraid of doing the labor involved to get that gold...

32 Replies and 29573 Views Crushing Quartz  29573  32 Started by  Katra12
(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

2 Replies and 9449 Views DIY Bazooka gold trap stand..  9449  2 Started by  Mparramore In the past I have had issues with setting up the Bazooka in the river. I thought there has to be an easier way. I looked online and figured that I would make a stand myself. I could drive the stakes into the river, adjust the height and angle if needed. The bungee cords hold down the Bazooka and it wont float off. I think I went over board with the wire and drilling the screws and sliding lock pieces. At least I wont lose the parts to the river. I am open to new ideas. You can use my ideas and ...

The researchers say the alloy sample pretty much destroyed a diamond pestle and mortar used to crush the sample for testing in a spectrum analyzer. The addition of Gold to Titanium makes an...

3 Replies and 9720 Views New LDMA General Forum  9720  3 Started by  ewbragg I would like to propose a new general LDMA Members Update Forum that all the LDMA  members and caretakers that can post updates for camp phone, address, rules, events, discuss issues, etc.  Another idea is a menu option for LDMA members to at least be able to view the LDMA camp current information.  I know there are individual forums for each camp, but I think a general LDMA Forum for discussing LDMA properties, events, or issues would be beneficial to all.

1 Replies and 8490 Views What's With That Name ?  8490  1 Started by  rockkingron@gmail.com      Something that is often overlooked is the names on maps and how they can help the prospector to locate likely areas to hunt.  A good example of this is the colorful and strange names the 49ers gave to towns, ravines, creeks, streams, hills, and mountains where they hunted for gold.  Also some of these place names have been renamed several times over the years.      One area that I hunted, I had with me an old 1890s map, a 1950s 15-min. topo map,...

21 Replies and 17149 Views Folding Sluice Box Classifier  17149  21 Started by  Stumbletown Miner     Hi everybody,     I made a cheap inexpensive classifier for a folding sluice box. It's made from a $3 IKEA strainer and a Dollar Store strainer with Home Depot plexi-glass, and Epoxy.     The main reason I did this is because the folding sluice box's load up with 1/2' rocks and they stay loaded up. So 1/4' or smaller is best. My classifier is in the water so it rinses all the rocks and materials. The first grate (Grizzly) puts the bigger rocks in t...

26 Replies and 25710 Views Gold mining bucket tip  25710  26 Started by  Stumbletown Miner
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
 If you've carried a bucket full of Gold mining tools very far, like four miles up a river, then you'll like this bucket tip. A snappy grip & a closet rod bracket bolted onto the bucket to carry the Gold pan & a classifier. And in the bucket are the usual tools...small blue pan, rock hammer, crevice tool, scooper, paint brush, black sand magnet, sucker bottle, pouch with viles & tweezers, etc..     Stumbletown Miner
