    I live in the Natomas area of Sacramento, and I'm looking for some prospecting buddies to go on a regular basis with. I've got equipment.

    Live in citrus heights, I'm too afraid to drive the roads myself. Also wouldnt mind having buddies to go with. I have my own equipment and am willing to pitch in for gas.

    Hello John:

    I live in Yuba City. Besides the basic gear (pan, sluices, etc), I have sniping equipment and a complete hookah diving system (air compressor, hoses, thick wetsuit, the whole nine yards). When the rain subsides, I intend to do some winter prospecting (I also have a lot of camping gear for both summer and winter). Beside GPAA claims, I have access to other private claims in the Mother Lode. Don't hesitate to phone me when you get the chance. I'll be attending the Gold Hounds meeting this coming Friday for a meet and greet:

    Hey guys, i know this is an old post but wanted to say i live in antelope ca and have most everything equipment wise besides dredge, use gold hog mats in a keen A52 sluice. Goldmaster detector, all the usual pans and classifiers and tools. Grew up going up to all the foothill locations and prospecting with my dad. Ive recently got back into it and dont really have anyone else interested so if you want to hook up for a trip sometime hit me up! Thanks Rick

    I'm another new guy here. I live in the foothills between Lincoln & Auburn. I'm still green, but I'm building my tool collection, studying hard, and looking to buy my first sluice soon. I joined GPAA hoping to meet some like-minded people and get out there to do some real prospecting. I'd be down for a group outing sometime.

    Welcome Rck and Eric,

    Man you are right in your yard for mining in that area, many great spots
    Check out the Auburn State Rec area, be mindful of "their" rules, many areas above Lk Folsom to poke around
    So much mining history in your area

    Check out local chapters, its a little early yet, rivers/creeks runnin high and cold, but they have group outings

    Also looking for prospecting comrades. Im about 1.5 hours from sacramento, im into detecting, crevicing, sluicing, etc, still an amateur though.

    We should all get a group going, cell texting is easiest for me (I dont have facebook). I will be posting my when I go out on here, most likely not until the water is lower.

    I Have checked out a couple gpaa claims around the area... so far just finding flour... much to learn I have

    Going out this week/weekend, most likely thursday friday saturday, half of sunday.... April 18,19,20,21.
    If anyone is interested in going out for a day or 2, or more, let me know. I dont know of any specific claim, I would be going to, but im thinking around edwards crossing @ south yuba, or maybe a little north near Downieville but im open to whatever.

    email or text, calling works too i guess, bobed89@gmail.com or 925 three 3 9 - 2 three 55

    Just a little head up on a small get together... Im goin to try to make it, I havnt personally met any of these people but i hear good things.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N9jteFfz9Jc

    details in the video description, ill paste it here too...

    "be held this May 11th & 12th 2019 . At the SOUTH YUBA CAMPGROUND Off north Bloomfield rd. Blue tent , California Just passed Edward's crossing . We will meet at 7am sharp Saturday morning there is the option to camp overnight you must provide your own camping equipment and food. There is also a $10 camp permit paid to the state onsite to camp overnight. If you decide to stay we will be prospecting Sunday until 2pm . Please be prepared for a 40min to 1.5 hour hike to prospecting grounds. There is also a heavy presence of bears in the areas so be prepared for that also. Bring non motorized equipment to comply with regulations. Please leave a comment after the video to let us know you will be coming! "

    Interesting....this doesn't look like a GPAA event, do you have to be part of their group to attend? I can't find anything about them other than their YouTube channel.

    Edit: I figured it out....Adam is a local prospector with a YouTube channel. There is no formal group, just a bunch of guys who hunt gold together. I might try to join them on this outing.

    Hi Bill... yeah, i play upright bass, love jammin Bluegrass n some country/folk . i drive up from SoCal. (San diego) theres alot of festivals somewhat close to some of the GPAA claims. (Actually quite a few!). main reason i joined GPAA. San Diego doesnt have the BIG WATERS, like NoCal.. i thought of starting a Musician Prospectors thread.. just to see how many prospectors are also musicians.. haha.. i kind of farmed the main topic of Sacramento tho! being from San Diego..
