3 Replies and 552 Views Two Pieces of Flour Gold -- Keep Looking?  552  3 Started by  theasthmatics@aol.com For fun, and to do a bit of testing/fine-tuning, I ran some material on a relative’s ranch in southern Utah. It was fairly compact cobble, and I ran about 10 buckets, of which there was probably 2 buckets of dirt. I wasn’t anticipating anything other than maybe iron and lead to help me gauge if I things were working. Instead, I was surprised by two iddy-biddy pieces of flour gold. I researched as much as I could, and I can’t find any indication that there is known/prospect...

4 Replies and 8167 Views Garbage on claims  8167  4 Started by  j_pavli@hotmail.com Hello all, I was recently near one of our claims in Arizona and was a little taken back by the amount of trash that was around. I don't believe it was any of our members trash. I could have filled a garbage truck if I had one. It was sad to see that amount in a wilderness area. What surprised me the most wasn't just one area.  Anyone else encounter large amounts of garbage.

The east fork river has been a hot spot for Gold since mining was invented. This rich Gold area should be a monument to Gold Miners     Our trip was crazy, no parking, I couldn't go where I wanted to go. There were cars parked all the way down the road, so we ended up at 'nugget alley' if you're familiar with the area. There had to be 200 campers there, ...

0 Replies and 4623 Views Grand County Colorado, Kaufman Creek  4623  0 Started by  hooahextreme@gmail.com I used my Bazooka Gold Trap in Kaufman Creek.  I dug one hole along the bank down to a blue clay layer.  I only ran about 6 quarter full buckets of unclassified material.  I got fine gold and a bunch of black sand.  It was a fair rate of recovery for only a short time in an area where I have never prospected and had very little knowledge.  It is a beautiful place too with some good dispersed camping.
