    • I am in the same boat. I know the exact GPS coordinates. But how do you find out if someone has a active claim on the location? Secondary question is how does one find info on a OLD mine? Like mine history.
    • Those filed in the county in another name might have been sold, with a quit claim deed.  There’s many sets of ground claimed twice, after all the BLM and county are under no obligation to check to see if the land is free, nor will they resolve disputes. For me I get GPS cords by first getting the county filing and checking the map, and then going to land matters.org, turning on the PLSS and getting a pin point on where the corner is, like the NE 1/4 of the SW 1/4, just mouse over it.  When I get boots on ground, I’m nearly always within 30 yards of the marker when I get to the site.  There’s times where one marker may be missing. I’ve also put in corners where I checked out a new area for a claim to find markers where there was no claim, but found out by looking on the county website that the area had been claimed 20 years earlier, and since let go.  THere’s very few claims you can’t do this to, and there’s usually a reason like the claim would Vros into an adjacent county, or borders private property like a homestead. I looked a few miles East and South of the San Domingo North of Castle Hot Springs Road and there were many unclaimed sections where I was free to prospect.  I did not find any gold, but knew I was where no one had been recently with the amount of iron I was pulling out of the wash.
    • Cool story!!!  Keep it up Andy.
    • One of my absolute favorite strategies for strewn-fields (dry environments of course) is to attach some rare-earth magnets to the underside of my truck bed and drive, I pick up all sorts of random crap (plus a few tiny meteorite pieces). Please feel free to share your favorite strategies when searching a strewn-field!
    • Well now theres a new strewn field somewhere around wikieup ......I wanna go !
