    Before & After

    Here`s a great example of how prospectors workings can change over time. This is a spot Boulder Dash and I dry washed, and a picture of the same spot 4 years later. Something to think about when your out prospecting.
  2. Got over to the Pala Chief & Ocean view mines for a little rock hounding, and even found a few things. Looking across the valley to the Tourmaline Queen Mine? One of the steep tailings .. My finds.... Triphane, Kunzite, Green Tourmaline etc. Cousin`s finds; she got some great gemmy pinks, and a big quartz crystal from the Oceanview Mine

    Pala Chief Mine

    Unfortunately it is a Fee Dig. You pay and they turn you loose on the large tailings of the Pala Chief Mine. San Diego County, CA

    Anyone know the name of this mine. Its in a fairly remote area of the Bradshaws.

    Quartz and Gold

    Boulder Dash is right is what he said. I know its hard advise to actually put to use on the ground but I have learned in the last couple years that detecting everything can be critical. As for the "Quartz" , well I wouldnt put a whole lot of faith in that, I would say Hematite is more of an indicator ( for me at least) than quartz has ever been. Ultimately though, I have given up on Key ground conditions because many many nuggets I have found have been in somewhat benign, and bland looking areas. Hunting everything is good advise.

    Be careful out there.

    I dont think its that stupid. Hes an outdoorsman, that had been prospecting his property, and likely for a while. Hes probably even been down the shaft before. I dont think stupid is a good characterization of the fellow when he was smart enough to let a friend know when to get concerned. That decision likely saved his life.

    Hi Patrick, Claim details will be tricky so I cant really respond to that question. However you can camp off Harquahalla Mine road that runs south of salome. There is gold out there, and thats not by a made up blanket statement of assumption. I have found gold down there. A great area Both Boulder dash and I have camped is just north east of Vicksburg on a road called desert mine road if I recall. You can get a camper in there no problem. The terrain in both the Salome and Vicksburg area are similar to Quartzsite....The gold is tough to come by, but it should be a peaceful camping experience.

    Gas Vac and new vortex separator

    Yep , that Vortex Separator should work just swell. Now you need everything to dry out a bit.

    That 24k may be your best decision yet... Good luck!

    Thought you were done prospecting? Are you going to have that machine at the outing?

    Possible Meteorite?

    No chance

    Advise please

    You may be better off asking what the most successful method of gold recovery is in Arizona. The popular vote will likely be the vote of people whom do not even know what they are doing.

    That`s a pretty bold statement. I would like to see it compared to a GM1000 on the smallest of pieces in hotter ground. Since they both seem to be on the same playing field. I want to love this new 24K because I absolutely can not stand the horrible ergonomics of the GM1000. The performance of the GM1000 is mind blowing but the design is absolute crap. Maybe its just me....

    Huh ?

    You have used the new Whites GMT 24K ?? Because that`s the new machine the OP appears to be talking about. I would be very interested in the performance of that new Whites 24K , because if it can equal the GM1000, I would get the GMT 24K. The gold bug II that "the Ace" is selling would also be a good deal. The new gold monster 1K has also proven itself as a great gold finder , especially in mineralized ground.

    The targets I dug today

    Well done Luke !!
  22. Agreed on the glass. If that were a natural mineral , it would be highly desirable.

    Hurricane Coming To AZ

    It could have been mine, because I bought floaties for it
