    Hi All
    From March 17th to March 21st we will be having a outing out at the claim. Come on out and enjoy the fun as we dry wash and metal detect for Placer Pete Gold! Spend a day or more with us. We will also be working with a small group of greenhorns on Friday and Saturday in dedicated classes to learn how to read the claim to dry washing / metal detecting through clean out and weighing your gold! Contact us for details on the classes. There are only 4 spaces left in these dedicated classes. If you are a seasoned prospector and just want to share some stories or new to the prospecting activity this is a great place and time to share and learn. Hope to see the GPAA/LDMA folks out there.

    Hey there, greenhorn here. I’ve known about gold mining for years, and decided to do more in depth research over the last few months and realized even if I live in Houston, Texas I can still mine gold! So I’m really interested in buying equipment, getting out there, learning, mining, and basically spending a season out there in other states. Would a class like yours be open to me?

    Great Mark.
    Since most of our events are in the spring, fall and winter (the desert is hot in the summer of course) we hope to see you at an upcoming outing or class in the near future. We are planning our advanced prospecting course ( 3 days) for the near future, probably in early to mid May. Thanks for joining the mailing list. Good luck and may your pan always have color.

    Steve, Thank you, ive looked more into it and have seen that its dry washing in the desert, as well as you need to pay for your spot daily?. Would be nice, but im planning on buying a gold hog highbanker and was wanting to start off with that and learning to run material with water. I will undoubtedly attend one of your courses, but id want to get my feet wet first in the waters prospecting. Then again its not too late for me to buy a dry wash plant lol. Im keeping my options open.

    Mark, thats actually really great. I saw its a little over an hour from where i am here in Houston so id be happy to meet up. Im wanting to meet more prospectors here in Texas, maybe even do a trip here in Texas with fellow prospectors before i go all out and head to other state(s) for months. As i said im wanting to spend a season traveling the states mining for gold and hopefully pull in around 2 ounces a month. I know the goal is pretty high and a bit of a long shot, but ive also learned if you have a bit of knowledge, and perseverance, you can make it happen. (If anyone has a reality check hit me with it now lol) Anyways im getting off track, ill send you an email, we'll talk more on there brother.

    Hi Kevin and Mark
    Thanks for the interest in our Upcoming activity in the desert. I would like to encourage both of you to sign up for our mailing list again. It seems that there was an error in the web site regarding the email address. This has been fixed but unfortunately your email address was not sent to us to add you to our list. If you could please give it one more shot I will make sure you get onto our list. Thanks

    As far a desert versus river prospecting well I really enjoy both however in California it's a bit difficult to do any water prospecting beyond shovel and sluice box unless you are 300 feet / yards? (Don't exactly remember) from the water source. So please make sure you are following the rules before starting out on an adventure you may not be able to fulfill.

    Thanks again
