0 Replies and 1060 Views may/june 2021 updates insert  1060  0 Started by  rshafersr@gmail.com Great supplement. Hopeful the LR2000 replacement article has more information coming in the next update regarding the 'help' not found in the MLRS software by me. Is it possible to get a better source for items like 'how to search by GPS coordinates' I have no idea where that info might be on the GOV site.

1 Replies and 1382 Views GPS coordinates for GPAA claim corners online? where?  1382  1 Started by  stcroix_man2002@yahoo.com Heya Kevin.. Prospector Dean here from MN. As I have time I am adding the GPS coordinates for the GPAA claim corners into Google Earth as an overlay, in the areas where I prospect. You recently had an article on this. The GPAA book has the claim corners for each claim, but I don't see them here online in the individual property descriptions, only the ingress and center of claim coordinates. Am I missing something, or are the corners purposely left out here in the properties section Also ...

2 Replies and 1309 Views Ingress/Gates/Signage  1309  2 Started by  human@sonic.net Kevin, et al New member here, liking the community already and to that point wanting to make an observation. After spending half a day reading property reviews, I was aware that there's not enough photo documentation to the actual trouble spots of the roads. Gates were another topic along with signage. I know signs can attract as many people as they repel and gates are revenue intensive. The point being, I would like to volunteer some of my time along with what little ability I may hav...

2 Replies and 1020 Views Goldbug 2  1020  2 Started by  geroldpersonett@gmail.com I was intrigued by the article you wrote about setting the sensitivity on the GB2, I'm a big fan of the GB2 and plan on trying it in a few weeks. But have a couple of questions. I like using the Audio Boost when I can or would that effect the sensitivity to much I also run my volume at max and adjust my volume on my headphones, maybe I misunderstood your instructions, do you set and leave your volume at 7 I also try and run in low mineralization but usually end up in the normal settings and m...

5 Replies and 1291 Views General area maps  1291  5 Started by  waugh1198@gmail.com This from a thread elsewhere here. A suggestion of a national map giving a general location of claims and areas. Or even state by state would be a great addition. Could be linked to the state pages in the property page in the on-line guide, or a section in the members only page area. Would help members when planning a trip, as to what's in the area they're headed to, instead of sifting through the guide, be it on-line or hard copy.

5 Replies and 1444 Views Three Fault  1444  5 Started by  geroldpersonett@gmail.com Weather permitting, the first week of January I'm going to give the Three Fault claim a good working over. I'll be using a Goldbug 2, 6.5' coil, I'm going to be camping on the claim and spend four days there. I've read all the reports posted and just wanted to know if you or anyone had any more information to add. I can use my 10'coil if needed to get a little bit more depth but I'm hoping there is the real small gold there too that the Goldbug with the 6.5' coil can find. Looking at google maps...

2 Replies and 1267 Views GPAA to build a .kml file of all claims for Google Earth?  1267  2 Started by  stcroix_man2002@yahoo.com Has the GPAA management thought of creating a .kml overlay file for google Earth we could all download so that we wouldn't have to manually put in all the claim coordinates ourselves for areas we are interested in This would save much time and make finding remote claims easier, as well as being sure to be prospecting on the actual claim itself... as you know, the signage for many claims (not just GPAA) is often missing.. I have not built a .kml file myself but I don't believe it is very compli...
