I'm brand new to gold prospecting and have wanted to check out some spots ever since I moved out here to NM for school 18yrs ago but never got around to it. Well now I have 2 boys 8yr and 6ry and a girl 4ry and really want to start doing some fun outdoors activities with them. So I figured why not try some day/weekend camping trips to the woods and do some panning / prospecting.
I'm about 1hr from Hillsboro and have heard its a good area, just don't know where to go...and I don't know anything about claim rules. So I don't want to get in trouble my 1st trip out.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
