    Im planning a trip to reno for a week in september to do some prospecting, bringing my pans, stream sluice, and equinox 800. I know that the girlfriend is excited to summit Mt.rose, so i know we are going to try weather permitting. Is there a reason i havent heard of anyone prospecting there? Iv been trying to research the legality, but havent found anything. Iv searched for claims and there are none. What am i missing? Would panning or running a stream sluice be ok? Or swinging my detector around? As far as the rest of the trip still looking for other places, thinking rye patch, and maybe check out the gpaa claims around reno/tahoe area.

    Welcome Zack,

    Not familiar with Mt Rose or Reno area
    But usally if an area has past history of finds, you "should" be able to find something
    No history, probably nothing of worth there or not enough to produce
    I do know there are no GPAA claims at Rye Patch, there are some unhappy claim owners in the area because of its allure

    Take the gear, try some good looking spots, enjoy your time out there what ever you do
    You may start the next gold rush
