FORUM ANNOUNCEMENTS - PROBLEMS

This is where I will let you know about new stuff, upgrades, etc. and this is where you post forum glitches and problems so administration sees it.


Forum Guidelines

This forum is a place to report issues with the forum, ideas, and for administration to make announcements concerning the forum. Same general rules as the rest of the forum...



There are just a few rules here and yup I do enforce them and keep an eye on things as best I can. Here are a few guidelines I'd like you to follow if you will be participating here. This forum is not moderated as heavily as the other sections so please do not enter or open a topic if you think you will be offended. If you are at least respond like an adult or we will remove your post as soon as brought to our attention.

Vulgar and abusive language is not welcome here! Heck a cuss word to get a point across is not so bad, but I think you know what I mean.

I will not host public arguments and pissing matches between individuals here so please just don't do it. When it happens the post most times will simply vanish into cyber space.

Political or Religious posts belong in "Off Topic" but surly you can find other forums that host those discussions if it is your thing, I don't think anyone cares if you are Conservative or Liberal when we are out hunting gold nuggets.

You may not use this forum to advertise any other dealer, store, or product without written permission by owner at any time. Used items are allowed in the classified section.

This forum is not responsible for anything said by it's members at any time. This is a public forum and will remain so and although I can and will occasionally zap "bad content" I don't do it often and so far have never permanently banned a person. Also opinions expressed here do not always represent the opinion of the forum's owner!

Guests are welcome to browse the forum and use the information provided by registered members, but you can not post yourself until you are a registered member.

That is pretty much it my fellow Nugget Shooters so enjoy the forum, keep it clean and play nice.

    • In General, prospecting on UNCLAIMED BLM and National Forest land is lawful (1872 Mining Act), and allowed, (subject to applicable rules and regulations of those jurisdictional agencies) However, State land (State Trust Land) is closed to mineral entry, meaning no prospecting allowed. There may be individual exceptions to prospecting on State Trust Property (so I'm told) but a special application procedure is required which is costly and involves a somewhat lengthy process. (details may be obtained by contacting the agency of interest)
    • You need to learn the rules from the BLM. It is a bit more complicated than Skip presents it. In short if it is not claimed and there are no other restrictions then yes, you can pan and do small sampling.  State land is not public land like BLM. State land is private land and you generally can't prospect at all. Different States have different rules but the ones I am familiar with do not allow prospecting.  You asked a huge question. One that requires a lot more than a simple answer. A little research on these threads and some time spent on the subject is the only proper way to answer the question. Finding a spot is the key to finding gold. The land research and laws are as steep a learning curve for new guys as the prospecting techniques. Here is my best advice to a newbie. Don't look for "open ground" because you aren't going to find squat. Look for the most tightly held claims in the district and get as close as you can to that. It will be a pantload easier to get on real gold by meeting people and learning who is who in a district than trying to learn to prospect in an "open" area. I often ask forgiveness instead of permission. I have also noticed that the gold is a lot brighter on corporate land. And you will find many ounces of gold before you will find "open" ground worth working. Just my two cents. 
    • If the area is opened to mineral exploration, and not already claimed for either a lode or placer claim or any other mineral claim, you can do any kind of prospecting your heart desires, i.e. metal detecting, dry washing, sluicing, panning, magnetic imaging, divining rods, and even psychic readings, etc.

    • It is my understanding that ranchers can lease land for grazing. This keeps food on my plate so its a good thing ;) But can they restrict you from claims? If so how? Thanks for the answers and your time folks. I know I am dropping questions like a mad man.
