1 Replies and 2821 Views Paydirt  2821  1 Started by  anthony.ingersoll2@outlook.com I am sure that we all know what paydirt is and how it works. Many times, I have seen people go crazy over the paydirt because they do not get dollar for dollar in the gold. I have often said that if you want gold dollar for dollar then you just need to go and buy gold bars, nuggets, or coins. However, with that being said there are benefits to the use of paydirt. I do buy paydirt on a fairly regular basis. There are a couple of major reasons that I do this. The first reason is to keep up on t...

2 Replies and 1789 Views Stamp mill fines  1789  2 Started by  rocdoc888colorado@gmail.com I have some stamp mill fines from Blackhawk, Colorado. After screening them, I ran a few scoops with my gold pan. I'm seeing some very fine gold as well as some dark gray material (not black sands) which is heavier than the gold. I was thinking galena (lead ore), but although lead is heavier than gold on the periodic table, galena is less dense. Any idea what the dark gray material is and any suggestions on how to separate it from the gold Thanks for any information you provide.

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
The 2014 GPAA Guide (Lastest version, I believe) lists Angeles National Forest near Azusa California as Public Land on which prospectors can pan or sluice for gold.  However, upon visiting the website for that national forest, I find this statement:  'All mining operations (location of mining claims, prospecting, and mining, including panning, sluicing, and dredging) under the 1872 Mining Law are prohibited within withdrawn areas of the Angeles National Forest.  Public Law No. 57...
