  3. Hi Bill, I will be attending alone for three days and two nights. Looking forward to seeing everybody.
  4. Sounds like a site with plenty of good potential.
  5. Yesterday
  6. If there is going to be an argument I want in on it.
  7. Prospecting in the East is not the same. The National Forests are not open to claims, and I doubt there are BLM lands. Its really getting to know the public land rules for the specific area you want, or hoping you can find a land owner in that area willing to let you prospect. Can't speak specifically to South Carolina, but in the Uwharrie National Forest in North Carolina, they allowed panning, but only in the creek, and I can't remember if hand tools were allowed. I do remember in the two years I lived in North Carolina, I never tried prospecting. Didn't take a trip to the gem mines neither. One of my cooworkers in NC was an avid relic hunter, mostly coins and rings. He was able to get permission from property owners to metal detect some old farms. The GPAA website shows no leased areas open to them in South Carolina, but in North Carolina has 9 mostly gem areas available. The GPAA chapter for South Carolina can be found at: https://www.goldprospectors.org/Community/AboutGPAAChapters
  8. Chris, There is gold in and around Aiken, albeit a little fine gold in the local streams, you'll find more northward, northwestward and northeastward from there, the closer you get to North Carolina and the better the gold, also there gold in north Georgia, you most likely will not find much if any detectable gold but you may get lucky since the gold detectors now-a-days can detect much smaller gold. Here are some images of the southern gold belts, I had more of these maps on my old computer but it died and I haven't tried to retrieve any of the images yet, and I can't find some of the ones now on the internet that I had on the old computer, if I find any more I'll post them.

  12. Got kin folk in Aiken.....all over that state.
  13. When I try to open I get a msg that says image blocked
  14. RD that pic is only a small part of the slave digs. some of their digs are small where they followed a vein but in that area it seems to go forever, especially when your inside the digs, there that were deep and the dirt piles are average four feet high. If three people with three detectors spent three days in those digs and found no gold their just flat lying. I have beeped the Eastern edge of those digs and found gold almost every day. About 1/2 mile to the right just out of the pic is where I found the 436 gr. That type of beeping is some of the hardest you can get into with the constant mounds of dirt, completely covered with trees and just plain brush. In the area after I got the 436 gr I slide off one of the mounds and broke two fingers on my left hand, the bones were sticking out. Good ole black electrical tape sure came in handy that day, taped the fingers up with the glove still on and headed home. The gold in that area is worth it!
  15. Looks more like the other feller is the one what started the argument.
  16. I'm not starting an argument. I'm merely stating a fact.

  19. I just did a search for south Carolina gold mines.... lots to read on the www
  20. What part of SC , used to live there in the early 70's
  21. Wondering if there is any notable gold bearing areas in South Carolina that anyone knows of? Looks like I will be moving back there in the next couple of months and I'm hoping to be able to continue my gold prospecting... as well as start doing some coin and relic hunting. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
  22. Because they are both ID sections, why start arguments on others threads?
  23. Last week
  24. Is the Gold Bug Pro with coils still available?
  25. Then why aren't you posting your hematite-magnetite finds in this section where they belong instead of the meteorite section?
