Gold Prospecting Forum Guidelines

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.

    • Don't give up. Get a new girlfriend if necessary. 
    • Sweet shiny stuff  . Is that one clean out , or a days of hard work ?  
    • Bob said to ask forgiveness and not permission.  To be clear I dont look for open ground to prospect. I look for the best ground to prospect and do what I need to do to get on it. That is often patented land and/or corporate claims. Lots of guys hyper focus on land status and finding "open" areas. My advice is to focus on inroads to the best areas. It is easier to find a spot you can work on excellent ground than it is to find gold on crappy ground.  The best areas are claimed. The guys who get the gold work those areas. If you want to be one of those guys you gotta work those areas too.  If you are just shaking a pan for a few colors then a club is the best bet.  Developing inroads to good ground will pay off much better than finding an unclaimed area. At least for a new guy. Someone who knows a district and has wide experience at finding gold may locate some unclaimed ground to work. But a newbie needs to learn to work gold on producing ground and then tackle the hinterlands. Again just my opinion. I have never found any gold and I probably don't even know what I am talking about. All I know about it I learned on the internet.    
    • I'm back everyone, I didn't find anything because i didn't even make it to the destination. But close. I enjoyed myself nonetheless. My girlfriend hated every bit of it, lol. She also slipped and fell on the GM1000, scraped herself up and now the GM1000 wobbles a hair. I wont even go into the complaining I heard about walking up the hills. 🙂 I got there at about 11:30am temp was about 75F. It was VERY close to highway 87. Decent dirt road to the place where we parked. Continuation to the destination needed a ATV which i didn't have. The walk to the destination is about 3750ft. The area seemed not so touched by man sorta speak. was quiet, saw a prospector come out on a ATV and rode past us. I started at the purple box. I ended up at the light blue box. (notice the white turn in the wash, i have a picture) The red box was my actual destination. I think i'm going to get a Honda Pioneer 500. I can't be spending my whole time walking to these claims. 🙂 Here below is what the new area looks like. I'm to new to determine if this location looks good, but i'm guessing it looks good.
