3 Replies and 25 Views Creek next to house  25  3 Started by  Joshuar90@yahoo.com funny story I been doing small trips to other claims and been out of luck. Last weekend I took my kid out to try his banjo pan out at a creek right across the street from my house. Ended up pulling 8 small nuggets just the hour we where there. Now every day after I drop kids off I take the baby and get a bucket of gravel out of the creek and been getting a few flakes every time. Even a shovel head that was 3 feet under the gravel and some square nails when I used my brother in laws metal detecto...

8 Replies and 9402 Views Texas Gold (yeah, Texas)  9402  8 Started by  Gold_Hogster Went to the round Rock GPAA spring outing on the Llano River. We have always got a few specks by just punching a few holes here and there but this year I learned to 'read' the river. Used google earths history and saw the river when it was flooded, and the gravel bars that formed in the following years. It pays to do the research. Heres the gold on the scale. For Texas, this is like the motherload

5 Replies and 232 Views New Claim Pics  232  5 Started by  elmo991200@gmail.com Met with a landowner today and was granted access to over a 1/4 mile of bedrock exposed creek. Took a few test pans and didnt find any black sands. Pretty dry but has deep pools everywhere. Lots of super mineralized rock and quartz/round gravel bars everywhere, really looking forward to taking my pick and shovel(the tools, not the magazine and paper lol) back with me and seeing what i can find. Looks super promising tho. Thoughts

3 Replies and 747 Views Two Pieces of Flour Gold -- Keep Looking?  747  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 8251 Views Garbage on claims  8251  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, ...
