16 Replies and 3445 Views Prospecting  3445  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.)

2 Replies and 3638 Views Nuggets, Pickers and Flakes?  3638  2 Started by  y.jaron@gmail.com Hi there fellow prospectors, it’s always been an ongoing debate. Is it a Nugget, picker or a flake I wanted to know your insight on how different sizes of gold is classified in your mind. I’m interested to hear everyone’s opinion, so let me know what you think.

18 Replies and 4377 Views Be Advised: USGOLDMAPS.COM  4377  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.
