0 Replies and 4657 Views Grand County Colorado, Kaufman Creek  4657  0 Started by 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.

6 Replies and 8776 Views Georgia Gold  8776  6 Started by  Gold_Hogster Spent 2 1/2 weeks in Georgia.  Was not impressed with Loud Mine. We dredged for 3 days and then ran 75 buckets of material hauled from across the creek and combined only got about 30 colors. Trying to get any info from caretaker was like pulling teeth. Was told we could set up the hi-banker anywhere, only to be told after an hour running could not be set up where we were, but could set up 15 feet from there. The material from the pile was a joke, all topsoil.  We spent the next week a...

2 Replies and 6053 Views Slo-Able 1  6053  2 Started by  seveneyes I just recently went to scout the one and only claim in San Luis Obisbo county. Its calle 'Slo-Able 1.' I wanted to see how camping would be and if there was running water on the claim this time of year and to take a couple of test pans to see if there might be some decent gold to be found. I made it to the Navajo Flat campground as it speaks about in the book, but then things got strange. The directions in the book said that the claim was 1/2 mile farther, but it wasn't clear if it was talki...

0 Replies and 5216 Views Flood Layers  5216  0 Started by I found this on a trip to Lake Mohave, AZ and thought it was interesting to see the flood layers. It was about 6-7 feet high and it had exposed bedrock in the bottom of the channel. I also got the metal detecting bug on this trip after using a Minelab Eureka, so I'm already looking to purchase one.

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
