0 Replies and 1492 Views diamond prospecting  1492  0 Started by  rrhobdy Now that I am retired, I took up the hobby of diamond prospecting.  It uses the same equipment as gold prospecting and very easy to do in some of the most beautiful scenery there is.  If you want to start, try Crater of Diamonds first, where you will get to learn about diamonds.  Then read up on the internet on where there are diamonds to be found elsewhere in the USA.  I prefer Colorado and Wyoming which has a history of finds.  There is an old saying: ' If you want to ...

3 Replies and 12195 Views Panning practice at home  12195  3 Started by  17CCRAMER@GMAIL.COM My father taught me this. You get some dirt in your gold pan (a normal pan full ) then you put about 10-15 steel BBs into the dirt and mix it in. The steel BBs are not as heavy as gold but heavier than the dirt. Pan normally until you get your 'concentrates' and see how many BBs are left in the pan. This is a good way to see how much gold you are losing when panning also. My father was a professional gold miner for big companies in California and Nevada. His hobby was prospecting. If y...

5 Replies and 10685 Views weighing gold  10685  5 Started by  dsabbo@sbcglobal.net I have an old vial with a small amount of gold in it.  I would like to weigh the gold to see just how much is in there. I just bought a small digital scale but now I'm wondering just how to weigh only the gold. I can weight an empty vial, but not the amount of water unless it is still mixed in with the gold.  Now, somewhere and long ago, I read an article about just how to do this, but I can't remember where or when or how. Any suggestions as to how or where I might have read about th...

8 Replies and 13356 Views What Classifier Sizes  13356  8 Started by  civilian_again@yahoo.com I am looking at getting more classifiers. I have the 2 (1/2') and 8 (1/8') mesh classifiers by Keene. I am going to use a 100 for (Blue Bowl and Miller Table). What sizes do you feel are best to add before the 100 mesh or can I just go from the 8 straight to the 100  My concern is having to much to dig through, in the classifier, if I make a big jump like this. Thanks

15 Replies and 24560 Views Dry washers, losing gold  24560  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...

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...

(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 9683 Views DIY Bazooka gold trap stand..  9683  2 Started by  mparramore1969@aol.com 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 ...
