Some of the location of gold on this claim

This area is about 1500 feet sown the road where you turned off of Red Cloud Road and less than 800 feet from the camp site if you decide to use it. Members have found free gold in layers of decomposed metamorphosed gneiss that is in the form of ribbons. It is decomposing and releasing the gold it holds. It is spotty and one area will have it and another will not have free gold when it the decomposed layers. Prospecting is a necessity and many parts of this claim have not been prospected. Access can be very challenging and there is a lot of jumping Cholla cactus in the area so keep track of your pets.

Hi,

This is my first GPAA everything. First claim, first detecting, first panning so please bare with me if this is not the greatest report. :-)

I spent part of 2 days there last week, 11/2 and 11/4. I did not find any gold detecting but did find bullets, casings, a tin can, a penny and one "hot Rock". oh and maybe some lead.

Surprising to me I did find gold. It is really small and flat I classified it and it passed through 40 mesh. I can see it and I can see more when I put it under a magnifying glass but I can't separate it from the black sand and there is clay I think which makes it worse for the new guy trying to pan it.

I also found some interesting rocks. All in all it was not hard to find, decent parking and was a fun day. It will be more fun as I learn more about what I need to do to recover the gold.

:-)




 

Technique impressive, results disapointing

Detected for 4 hours did not find any gold. The soil conditions are damp which prevent drywashing.
