    Good afternoon Kevin, 

     

    I am looking to take a trip to one of the claims in the mining guide, ( my first one )! My choices are AZ,CA,or OR. I would prefer  a claim that will be semi warm that time of year. I just want to know if you had any info or know wich claims have really good gold to pan and sluice. A claim that has fairly easy access to and is in a relativly safe area. Im planning a 4 day trip and plan on renting a jeep too.

    Johnathan,
    When are you planning your trip dates? There is very little water in most of the areas that are warm right now with many of the water claims are still snow bound. We can start there and work our way through the rest of it to find you a claim that you can spend some time on. When you are looking in the mining guide, claims that state seasonal water is important.
    Let's get you on a claim.
    I'll see you, out there!

    Water in March is going to be a bit of a problem in Arizona. Most of what we had is gone with the Monsoons being our next good hope. Water prospecting would be easier in the areas of central to northern California. Contact the chapter presidents from the
    Delta Gold Diggers - http://www.goldprospectors.org/Comm...rId/STOCCA
    River City - http://www.goldprospectors.org/Comm...rId/SACRCA
    NOR-CAL GOLD PROSPECTORS - http://www.goldprospectors.org/Comm...rId/REDDCA (Might be snow on the ground in a few areas in Nor Cal)
    Between these three they should be able to better let you know what is going on the the direct area.
    Let me know what you find out.

    Regards,

    Kevin
    I'll see you, out there!

    Soldier Boy Double JJ were my go to claims for years and still ones that I visit whenever I come home to Preskitt to see friends. Do your time prospecting and read everything you can about the area. Schist belts that intersect bedrock formations have done quite well for me over the years detecting.
    I've tested a lot of dete4ctors on those claims over the years and found some nice nuggets. Brush is tough to work in but persistence will pay off.
    Good luck and maybe I'll see you there some time.
