    Ok so I just joined and was wondering if there is an online user friendly map of all the claims. I see you can search an area online and get claims, but you have to go through every one to figure out where they are. Is there a spot on this site where the claims are mapped out with names so it's easier to search. I plan to spend the next month or two driving from Mammoth Lakes Ca. To Tucson and hitting our claims and doing other prospecting along the way, so just would like a nice user friendly map if it's available. Either way no worries. I can go through them individually. I have my new member kit and claim guide being sent to Tucson as I'm leaving Monday and wasn't sure about shipping time. Though looking online at claims seems fine. Thanks in advance for your help.

    I’m not aware of a map. Best bet might be to use the search tool for various areas you want to check out.

    Do you live in Mammoth? I’m in Lone Pine. Also a new member.

    Yes I've been in Mammoth for a while, but will probably be leaving tomorrow to prospect around SoCal and Arizona until it starts warming up. Was going to leave yesterday but this storm was no joke. Every side street up here is just one lane now. One of the biggest storms that I can remember.

    Yeah, you guys got slammed by this storm. Safe travels! In the future, let me know if you'd like to get together to do some prospecting.

    I was in Quartzite, AZ last week. The Flat Foot claim is close to the BLM campgrounds and as a result it has a lot of trash that interferes with metal detecting. The center wash areas are best for detecting and sluicing. The weather was outstanding for any type of prospecting.

    If you got the guide book with your membership there is maps in it. Very useful book.

    Not a map like that at present, but has been brought up.

    About the best you can do is either look at the online guide by state and county, if you know what counties your going through.

    Or download the GPS coordinates from the guide for center and ingress, and mark with pins on a GPS mapping system, ie google earth.

    The printed guide does have topo map sections showing the claim layouts.

    Your kit should show up in a couple weeks, depending on weather and covid.

    I was just looking for a map as well

    Since that is not available, what about downloading the database as a CSV..? That way we can import it into mapping software

    GPAA claim maps for all claims nationwide does not exist. If cords are not listed in the Guide or the online program, I go to the county recorder site to see the Township, Range Section, qarter, qarter/qarter. etc.. that the original filing has. From there, I go to a website that has PLSS like mylandmatters.org, and I get GPS cords.

    I think the GPAA has 350+ claims and this is not the first time this has been brought up, so what I listed above is the only way I found to get accurate claim coordinates. Either that, or asking until someone else who has done the work answers.
