Long story short: I'm a scuba diver, new to GPAA & gold prospecting. I would love tips, places, and help with discovering potential spots to gold snipe in southern california.
Hello good members of the GPAA. I'm brand new to the world of gold prospecting/panning/recovery. I panned once or twice at some tourist paydirt places of the arm highway in Alaska. Recently I have bought a bunch of paydirts, got some pans I like, and I'm starting to get pretty good at managing my material and getting a near perfect recovery rate (in a tub at least).
I'm hooked completely. So I joined to the GPAA to find places to prospect and learn about while waiting out the storm. I recently learned about gold sniping, crevicing, or what ever you want to call it. I love the idea and I would love to get into it. I'm PADI certified with hundred or so hours under my belt and am a very experienced backpacker.
I currently live in Southern California and would love to find a spot to check out with a decent chance of finding anything.
Any tips, tricks, locations would be fantastic, hell even the names of some decently clear rivers would be a great help.
Thank you all
I have no idea what I'm doing
