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.

    • Thanks for the pics Desertpilot. I've got a bunch of Nell Murbarger's writings including Ghosts of the Adobe Walls. She pretty much created the whole thing of exploring "ghost" towns. Her trips through Mexico were downright inspiring. I doubt Desert Magazine would have survived without her exploring and writing. I highly recommend her stories for any explorer of the west.
    • I wish I had a crystal ball Luke. In a perfect world this virus wouldn't have happened, or at least it would have been confined in China.    
    • Hey Luke, Haha......nah I haven't considered writing a book. I'm a pretty poor writer but some of the old timer advice has been awesome in shortening the learning curve in my mining.   For anyone else whose into AZ mining history check out Ghosts of the Adobe Walls. Its a book written in the 60's but has allot of first hand accounts to events that happened in AZ mining camps. Most libraries are dumping their old books online so its pretty easy to find.   http://speccoll.library.arizona.edu/online-exhibits-dynamic/az100/items/show/222
    • Cool stuff Kevin.   Have you considered writing a book? Especially considering you've had conversations with some of the old miners. Thanks for posting the pics.
