Saturday outting

Step 1 of 1

Part 1 Our first outting

Thank you GPAA for preserving public access for us, I haven't added any directions as yet the video camera was new and didn't have enough storage space. I will at a later date drive back to the claim and then upload the video. So I am a brand new Prospector/metal detector hobbyist with my wife. We caught a video online about metal detecting and dove in, since then I have discovered the menagerie of rules, regulations and laws that utterly confuse would be hobbyists and truly make it difficult to enjoy this pastime with family and learn about our history, our community, our country, and our world.

Thankfully organizations like the GPAA exist. So Aces and Eights in Nelson NV, this claim is easy to access. I mean it is really easy to access, mind the speed limits I don't know what the local law enforcement is like but it is a small community right before you leave the road and people and animals can step out anywhere. The drive back to the claim is via a graded gravel road that follows a wash that has seen some water activity so it still has some bumps, but completely accessible by 2 wheel drive.

Diggings and historical mines dot the landscape but most appear to be off limits for preservation and safety. The area of the claim we traveled to was near to the center of the claim area. The first monument as listed by GPS is very accurate and the post is there the tag is gone though. This claim site appears to have seen a lot of activity over time, there are very interesting dig sites that expose a lot of geologic information about the site as well. We spent our day working mostly down in the washes. I found a tailings area under where a significant amount of material was moved and collected a bucket to pan later.

Work is calling, I will post part two soon with video and pictures.

Good hunting!
