    I realize piru creek has been heavily worked for years but it is still close to home and an easy day trip. Have been there 3 times with zero results. I also know gpaa has a claim there somewhere. (the map is vague.) Can anyone give me some insight as to where they have recently found any color or where might still be a good place to try? Any old mine shafts or operations with directions?

    Matt, I have worked on the TRIPLE D AND M claim a couple of years ago for a couple of hours and did find some color. I was working just a little south of Gold Hill road where it meets Piru. I was snipping and doing a small amount of crevicing. If you were to use the online mining guide and use the center of claim tab, I was working about halfway between where the pin sits in the center of claim and the road. Sorry I can't be more specific or get you a bit closer than that.
    Hope this helps.
