    Carrie,
    What part of Colorado are you from ? I may know a few places you could prospect. Do you have any equipment yet ?
    If you are near the Denver area I would highly recommend going to the GPAA Gold & Treasure show on April 13 & 14 at the National Western Complex. Also join your local chapter they can be very helpful and have group outings and get togethers.

    Welcome Carrie,

    Dont spend alot of money on gear until you figure out the type of prospecting you plan on.
    Checking out a gold show is an excellent suggestion, as well as checking out a chapter, good folks, good information
    Gives you opportunity to check out different types and different areas for mining
    Take your time, go slow, the gold aint going anywhere, there still plenty out there

    I actually do not know which chapter is the one we would go to, we live in Aurora but only until we finish our trailer. we have a metal detector and some pans, my husband is building a sluice when it warms up more. we also have a classifier and some other thing like a shovel etc. we are prepared to camp anywhere we can and get out of the city. thank you for the helpful information

    Carrie,

    Your local chapter is the Foothills Chapter in Golden, CO If you are able to get to the Gold & Treasure show I'm sure the Foothills Chapter will have a booth at the show.

    I highly recommend joining Kevin Singel's face book page, Finding GOLD in Colorado! Lots of good folks and good information. Check out his free web site also, same name, and if that is the kind of information you are looking for, he has a book, Finding GOLD in Colorado...I highly recommend it.

    I am a retired guy so I have a lot of time to prospect. I work a lot of the GPAA claims in southwest Colorado near Gateway. They have treated me well.

    I am easy to find on Kevin's facebook page!
