    Just a friendly public service announcement regarding usgoldmaps.com

    They make claims maps for use with Google Earth. The product looks really nice but upon receipt I discovered that their data is static and from 2013.

    I reached out to the Contact Us email and the response was basically, don't worry about it. Claim data doesn't change very often.

    Uh... I call BS

    Asking for a refund. Wish me luck and buyer beware.

    Glad you found the post helpful

    I did the $100 donation level to mylandmatters.com

    Check it out on their site. They send some additional reports, twice a month I believe, which can be useful

    Thanks for the heads up. I was looking around for some maps and such. Although I am new to the prospecting, the part where they say claim data does not change much; yea thats a BS call. Land formations change with the weather and geologic type events will even change things. But again, thanks for the heads up. I appreciate it.

    I use the diggings website to locate old claims and new claims in gold bearing areas. All the same info is there

    Claim information can change daily. New claims can be filed with the county any weekday. When I've filed with the county, it did not immediately enter their online data base and took a coupe of weeks to appear. Claims are most likely only closed or dropped when the BLM updates their database after the September filings, but they occasionally close claims for reasons such as someone filed a 160 acre claim, but only paid the 20 acre fee.

    When prospecting new claims, I'll check my land matters for BLM date, and then go back in the country records up to a month. Filing a claim in the county opens it, and then the paperwork must be immediately done with the BLM, and once fees are stop being paid or the small miners waiver is not filed, then the BLM drops the claim. When paying an annual claim fee, you need not file anything with the county, so a county will have no record of a claim being closed.

    I've done everything correctly, went out to the site, and found someone else there saying he filed paperwork. I believed him and left, but turns out he was a little less than honest to get me off the claim. Next time, I will have someone show me the paperwork. There's usually at least 40 hours of work that goes into finding an area before I put boots on the ground to actually prospect.

    Hmmm, a little less than honest, imagine that
    You did the right thing that time, next time you will know for certain

    My partners and I were told by an individual that he had rights to the whole river side to side....until we said, the side of the river the power house sits on is public and open to anyone
    He walked away mumbling something, never bothered us again
    Do the research and know the boundaries or join GPAA

    I use Minecacher.org that works with Google Earth. They update monthly and send you an email when they do updates. About $30 a year. And then there is LR2000 if you are tight on cash and want to
    punish yourself.

    I checked out minecache.com and looked at their updates section. They haven't updated anything this year so far but last year it was something just about every month. Thought that was odd.

    I'm using Minecache. They update monthly. Not sure if the website reflects that but I get an email from them every month letting me know the update has happened on their end. Very happy with their product.
