  1. I panned a few specks out of the Llano river at a fish camp south of the town of Llano a few years ago. Can't remember the name of the place. Some exposed bedrock in places. Bruce
  2. Soooo....underflow guy, would you happen to be connected to the manufacturer in any way? 1st post to promote a product
  3. It is inevitable that the dollar will be replaced as the worlds reserve currency. Hyper inflation WILL occur in the U.S. Holding physical gold as 5-10% of your portfolio is a wise and prudent play. I also suggest holding some cash in an offshore account in a strong foriegn currency.(i.e. German Duetsche Mark, Chinese Yuan) The stock market is bullish for now, so take some profit there but set relatively tight stop losses in case of a sudden collapse. This is my strategy for now. Bruce disclaimer: I am not a stock broker or analyst. These are only my opinions and I will not be held responsible
  4. Was this in the presidents voted down budget ?
  5. Hello Brian. . Here is a link to gold in Illinois. It does not cover your exact area but gives alot of insight to how it got to your region. http://www.isgs.illinois.edu/education/pdf-files/gold-poss.pdf B
  6. My comment was only to your reference to 43 CFR and the clause that removes holders of valid claims from said CFR's. 36 CFR contains similar language. Does your argument lie in Title 30 Chapter 2 Subsection 37 of the U.S.C.? If so, that pertains to perfecting patent on a claim and is there to prevent a claimant from paying the lower "placer" fee for known "lodes" or "viens" on the claim. The mining laws must be taken as a whole and not line for line or word for word.
  7. First of all, you have no "right" to prospect for minerals on ANY valid mining claim. A valid claim gives the claimant granted rights to ALL locatable minerals within his claim either discovered or undiscovered. Now lets look at the CFR that you posted above. CFR's are not laws. They are regulation and do not apply to lands open for mineral entry per the mining "laws" as set forth in Title 30 of the United States Code. [Code of Federal Regulations] [Title 43, Volume 1] [Revised as of October 1, 2002] From the U.S. Government Printing Office via GPO Access [CITE: 43CFR23.2] [Page 437] TITL
  8. In Belk v. Meagher, the supreme court says of the Mining Act of 1866: "(T)he locator of a mining claim has a possessory title thereto, and the right to the exclusive possession thereof. The words imply property. The right to the exclusive possession and enjoyment of a mining claim includes the right to work it, to extract the mineral therefrom, to the exclusive property in such mineral, and the right to defend such possession. The right to the exclusive possession and enjoyment of property, accompanied with the right to acquire the absolute title thereto, presupposes a grant, and the instrumen
  9. Where are you located in Indiana? I can point you in the right direction. It is important to hone your panning skills to catch some of the VERY small and flat glacial gold. I have found gold in Monroe, Morgan, Greene, Wabash, Knox, Daviess, Dubois, Owen, and Gibson counties
  10. Hello Urban, I'm not sure where you are in Indiana but I may be able to help. Here are some more places to study. http://igs.indiana.edu/Surficial/ http://www.in.gov/nrc/files/prospecting_navigable_waters.pdf http://www.iowagold.com/WHERE_TO_FIND_GOLD_USA_PAGES/indiana_gold.htm More to come Bruce
  11. Pretty steep angle. What happens when you flatten 'er out B
  12. I agree with buying a bag of cons to practice with. I think Randy's gold adventures has the best cons you can buy. I have no affiliation with this business, just alot of great reports on his product. Try the expert bag to sharpen your panning skills. I suggest panning your cons multiple times and as your panning improves so will your confidence. Here is a link to Randy's site. http://www.goldadventures.biz/ga_gold_cons_for_sale Good luck, B
  13. Chris, I know this is an old thread but I have a friend living over on sand mountain and on a recent visit to his place (a week ago) I couldn't help sticking a pan in the creek near his house. Here are the results of two small pans of material. (maybe a gallon) Gold is where you find it! https://picasaweb.google.com/112783734354032872402/MyPics?authkey=Gv1sRgCLvorqiGrpSe9wE&feat=directlink
