1 Replies and 3069 Views tried out Buchana claim in Georgia  3069  1 Started by My neighbor and I went to the Buchanon Claim in Georgia (we are from Missouri).

Last weekend I took my kid out to try his banjo pan out at a creek right across the street from my house. Ended up pulling 8 small nuggets just the hour we where there. Now every day after I drop kids off I take the baby and get a bucket of gravel out of the creek and been getting a few flakes every time. Even a shovel head that was 3 feet under the gravel and some square nails when I used my brother in laws metal detecto...

11 Replies and 19671 Views Texas Gold (yeah, Texas)  19671  11 Started by Went to the round Rock GPAA spring outing on the Llano River. We have always got a few specks by just punching a few holes here and there but this year I learned to 'read' the river. Used google earths history and saw the river when it was flooded, and the gravel bars that formed in the following years. It pays to do the research. Heres the gold on the scale. For Texas, this is like the motherload

5 Replies and 4417 Views New Claim Pics  4417  5 Started by Met with a landowner today and was granted access to over a 1/4 mile of bedrock exposed creek. Took a few test pans and didnt find any black sands. Pretty dry but has deep pools everywhere. Lots of super mineralized rock and quartz/round gravel bars everywhere, really looking forward to taking my pick and shovel(the tools, not the magazine and paper lol) back with me and seeing what i can find. Looks super promising tho. Thoughts

3 Replies and 4940 Views Two Pieces of Flour Gold -- Keep Looking?  4940  3 Started by For fun, and to do a bit of testing/fine-tuning, I ran some material on a relative’s ranch in southern Utah. It was fairly compact cobble, and I ran about 10 buckets, of which there was probably 2 buckets of dirt. I wasn’t anticipating anything other than maybe iron and lead to help me gauge if I things were working. Instead, I was surprised by two iddy-biddy pieces of flour gold. I researched as much as I could, and I can’t find any indication that there is known/prospect...

4 Replies and 12049 Views Garbage on claims  12049  4 Started by Hello all, I was recently near one of our claims in Arizona and was a little taken back by the amount of trash that was around. I don't believe it was any of our members trash. I could have filled a garbage truck if I had one. It was sad to see that amount in a wilderness area. What surprised me the most wasn't just one area.  Anyone else encounter large amounts of garbage.
