    Hello! Would anyone want to go prospecting in southwest Ohio, Little Miami, or StoneLick or even go to a Claim? I'm a Greenhorn, but try like hell! Anyone been to these areas? If so, any luck? Any advice? I've been going to Little Miami about once or twice a week. Haven't found anything yet! Ige been watching YouTube videos. Trying to learn! Any help would be much appreciated!

    Hi Edsil - I'm in AZ now, but would have loved to give the Little Miami or ... a try. I wont be returning to the area until next spring to summer. There is a group I liked http://www.ospagold.com/ Kevin and Betty were very good to me teaching me the art :)

    Hello again! I will talk to my woman and see, but this weekend should be good. I was thinking the Scioto Claim, or Stonelick. I've not been to the Claim yet! Hopefully the weather is nice. I live about an 1 an 25 from Scioto Claim/Lucasville, and I live about 30mins from Stonelick. You can text me at 5139404926. We will figure something out. Ttyl!

    Hello David, My name is Jimmie Smith and live close to Madison, IN. I have never tried the White River before and would love trying it out. But has to be warmer, lol. So if you would like to start setting things up lets do it. I am a life member of LDMA and want to get out more this year. Can you use a high banker there? I would like to hear from you.(812) 689-6658

    Hi Jimmy,
    I'm a lifetime member of the GPAA.
    I can't afford the dues for the lost dutchman.
    I get out every chance I get and find the yellow stuff every time. It's placer gold, so not alot, but it's there. I know of a couple places with fairly easy access for your high banker. I don't have anything as sophisticated as that, 2 sluices. 5 pans. And 4 snuffer bottles...lol.
    The greensburg chapter is having a cons party 29 feb in Lebanon, IN. NW side of Indianapolis.
    Can you make that? We could go over some plans then.

    I'm still in Arizona but the OSPA has many events, and every event I went to I came away with some color. I didn't join this year, since I'm out west but once I return to the area they will be my go to club. A lot of members cross to the Buckeye Chapter of the GPAA also (http://www.buckeyegold.com/meetings.htm)

    Hey Dan,

    How are the Ospa sites for metal detecting? I like to learn more about the southern claims I'm in the Akron area but I'm willing to travel so if you ever need help let me know.

    Been prospecting in OH for alot of years. Found gold ,pickers n flour, in Joes Run, behind Zanesville High. Used to take students there. Panned along US 50 from Hillsboro to Chillicothe. Found mainly flour, n lots of ruby sand. Stopped wherever a creek crossed road. Found pickers n flour in Raccoon Creek in Gallia n Jackson counties. All of it glacial drift. Best after heavy flooding where sand n gravel deposited. Good bit of black sand but not always.

    I've panned along the Kokosing River. Placier is there. I wish I had the experience then that I have now, I might have walked away with more than the flakes I caught. This summer I hope to be able to visit there again. Maybe we could do a meet up?
