5 Replies and 236 Views Online Mining Guide  236  5 Started by  taylorconley90@gmail.com Hello all. I am just getting back into prospecting after many years. Last time I was a GPAA member there was only the annual membership where I received the paper mining guide. This time I opted for the monthly which only gives me access to the online claim guide on which I only see center of claim and ingress points. Is there a way to find out the coordinates of the corner markers of the claims I would like to avoid accidentally claim jumping.

9 Replies and 403 Views Greetings and Hallucinations!  403  9 Started by  jimmygibbswk@gmail.com Hello all! Jimmy here and I'm a brandnew, know nothing prospector that's looking to learn. I attended the GPAA Expo at the Puyallup Fairgrounds last weekend and received a great tutorial from Rick on panning and I'm hoping to learn about a few other things. First: Do you need to have a gold claim on your own property or property owned by family (that you have permission to use) From what I saw researching online, I shouldn't need one, but again, I don't know much and may have misread. ...

20 Replies and 7910 Views Claim map  7910  20 Started by  richard93yj@gmail.com
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
Ok so I just joined and was wondering if there is an online user friendly map of all the claims. I see you can search an area online and get claims, but you have to go through every one to figure out where they are. Is there a spot on this site where the claims are mapped out with names so it's easier to search. I plan to spend the next month or two driving from Mammoth Lakes Ca. To Tucson and hitting our claims and doing other prospecting along the way, so just would like a nice user friendl...

I only own a few things to do this. I purchased a Garrett panning kit with a 15 inch 1/2 inch classifier and gravity trap, with a 8 inch gravity trap. It had some things to keep the gold in and a set of tweezers with a magnifying glass attached. Was like 40 bucks I think. Then I purchased a 6 inch trap for finer stuff. I hope to hit this claim first. Has anyone hit this one that can give me some pointers I was going...

How is this possible The most easy way to see it is on The Diggings site.  Click the map link to open a larger map with clear claim lines.

10 Replies and 1199 Views Washington State  1199  10 Started by  micah.hanley@gmail.com Hi all! New member/new prospector here from Skagit County in Washington. Safe to say that I'm a pretty terrible prospector thus far. I've found a tiny bit of gold, but I've still got a long way to go. Anyone here from Skagit County I'd be interested in meeting up with someone experienced who I could talk to. Lunch is on me! Happy to meet you all, Micah
