29 Replies and 38535 Views Hello Prospectors and Miners    38535  29 Started by  khoagland@goldprospectors.org
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
Hi Prospectors, I asked our Social Media Guru Paul to create this area within the Forum to make it a bit easier for me to see and respond to Members Prospecting & Mining questions. There have been a number of occasions that I have missed questions that were directed to me, this is not going to be the case any longer. I can't say that I will respond immediately because of of my schedule and the fact that there are a lot of places I travel that simply do not have connectivity. But know tha...

2 Replies and 197 Views claiming a mine  197  2 Started by  tim270holmes@gmail.com I havebeen scouting an area in Idaho that had a GPAA accessible claim on it a few years ago but the owner closed out the claim after some trouble with the USFS. This has been a long process that started in January. I have had to submit my NOI several times thank goodness for the MLRS. Now the problem is I still have to wait for a cultural study. I have also found out that if I would like to file a claim I need to follow the Blue Book Idaho Information Guide on Locating Mining Claims. Am I making...

3 Replies and 844 Views Stay limits on claims  844  3 Started by  iancoyle2002@yahoo.com I was curious about how long can a prospector stay on a club claim in Forest service lands. My son and I usually stay a whole summer dredging on claims we have permission to dredge on. I just recently joined GPAA, monthly for now, because we saw some interesting areas where the clubs claim is on the Middle fork Boise river here in Idaho. We usually work upstream more on friends claims, but needed a change in scenery...too many dredges up in that area. I know if your working a claim, the stay...

1 Replies and 137 Views Dale Mining District Claiming  137  1 Started by  jerry.perez1969@gmail.com Kevin, We took a trip out to the Dale Mining District and noticed so much potential in that area. There are some locations that have gold still but is BLM. Understandable BLM is accessible to the public sometimes but my question is why has GPAA not snatched up any claims in the Dale Mining District,what's the catch There are some claims in GPAA, where there very little gold and have to bust your back just to get some flour gold. Why not give up some of those little producing claims and go t...

0 Replies and 531 Views Sampling in the Arizona Desert  531  0 Started by  stananvergie@aol.com Basically how deep are you taking samples from. Just read 'Where's the gold' in March April Gold prospector mag. Think like you're looking at a sluice definitely got me rethinking things. I could definitely see it in that photo. Next years visit to Arizona will definitely will be a new start on my way of searching. Are you sampling the surface, or digging out a good deep shovel full. Changing from Stream tactics, to the Desert way of thinking is sure different. Hope to see you at the Gold show ...

0 Replies and 277 Views MLRS And GPS  277  0 Started by  tim270holmes@gmail.com Hello Kevin Was wondering if you have any news information on the LMRS. I have set up an account and am slowly learning how to use it. I am not that good with computers or any thing tech. We talked on the phone after you article in the claims update, and you were saying the BLM was not quite finished building the site. My next question is about GPS. I use a Garmin eTrex 10. There was an article in the May June 2021 issue but the GPS used was a lot more complicated than mine. If I am trying to ...

15 Replies and 8274 Views LDMA Claim, Leadville, CO  8274  15 Started by  fritzj8@yahoo.com I am trying to find someone who has visited the LDMA Claim in Leadville, CO.  I am considering upgrading to an LDMA membership, and this is the only claim I would be able to use.  I don't want to waist thousands of dollars on an LDMA membership if the claim is not any good.  GPAA told me there are no hosts there, which might say a lot about the claim.  I appreciate anything you can tell me.  Thanks,

2 Replies and 529 Views Hand Held GPS Units  529  2 Started by  aquanautdave@hotmail.com Kevin, In your opinion, which hand held gps unit is the easiest for tech impaired old guys to use and also is fairly inexpensive. Just wanted to add I enjoyed your seminar on metal detectors at the last Colorado Gold Show. Looking forward to the next. Thanks, Dave

I've been poking around there for a bit now but I can't seem to sniff it out. I'm familiar with geology and such, pretty handy with reading the land, this one has me stumped though.

I am looking for up to date maps showing active claims. I am probably dreaming but would like to see if there is any ground available in the San Domingo wash area other than the the gpaa claim. Also I have scoured the area and some of the claims are marked shotty at best with Downed markers probably from our monsoon season. It would be nice to have a larger map showing active 2021 claims in the maricopa county Az area as to...

6 Replies and 834 Views Non members camping on claim/ no markers on migg1-4  834  6 Started by  sdreaume@gmail.com Today I went to the Migg1-4 near Rochford SD. I couldn't even pull in to the parking area. there were out of state 6 big (I mean big) 5th wheelers trucks taking up the the area. All out of state and not GPAA. Now as far I know National forest rules allow camping for a few days on public which technically this is. The gentleman I spoke with stated a GPAA member told them they couldn't camp there due to it being a claim. I myself lean toward the national forest rules. Anyway just asking on...

5 Replies and 910 Views Lucky Linda again north entrance  910  5 Started by  jim.penn@ymail.com Hello Kevin I decided to go check out Lucky Linda again claim today from the north entrance going past the so called chicken coop. I drove the half mile south and found that the gate Has been permanently removed and fence post and bobwire is in its place blocking access. This appears to have just been done in the last day or two evident of tire tracks and foot prints. Just wanted to give a heads up and something that you may be interested in investigating.
