3 Replies and 6025 Views Prospecting help needed in Arizona  6025  3 Started by  kevbart Hi all, My family and I are in the Phoenix area for just a few more days.  We went up to the Yahoos GPAA claim area all day today with no luck.  We have a Garrett AT Pro metal detector.  We've never prospected for gold in Arizona before.  We currently have 2 more days (December 21 and December 22) scheduled to prospect for gold - but we need help!  We just aren't sure where and how we should be looking.  Is there anyone in the area willing to either chat or give us...

0 Replies and 2519 Views diamond prospecting  2519  0 Started by  rrhobdy@yahoo.com 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 13767 Views Panning practice at home  13767  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 12085 Views weighing gold  12085  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 20912 Views What Classifier Sizes  20912  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 28420 Views Dry washers, losing gold  28420  15 Started by  rewipe@yahoo.com   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.
