Hello Wayne! I would advise you to check out the local prospecting clubs like the RoadRunner's http://www.roadrunnergold.com These clubs offer you thousands of acres of claims to poke around on, all over the state. In Tucson, it's the Desert Gold Diggers http://www.desert-gold-diggers.org and out at Rich Hill, near Congress - where my company operates, you can join either the Weaver Mining District, or the Y Not club:

Weaver Mining District

PO Box 955

Congress, AZ 85332

Y NOT Prospectors Club

I wish you big nuggets, and when you get settled in look me up and let's have a beer! :thumbsupanim - Terry

Many years Steve ($35-annually), and they have some GREAT claims! I have pulled a lot of gold from the washes below Weaver and Rich Hills thanks to my membership in the club over the years. Call Tom and Maggie up, and go out and see them. Tell them Terry Soloman "Member 357," sent ya! :thumbsupanim

Terry.

I've never heard to the "Y Not" prospectors club. How long have they been in operation and what kind of claims do they have?

Steve

After the first week of June, these days I am either on the beach at Southampton, Long Island, in New York, or somewhere in Alaska running from bears and swatting at the state bird. My professionals in Arizona do some moonlight and early-morning prospecting though. You just need a good revolver, snake guards and a speaker system. Cheers! - Terry

You can use external speakers instead of headphones when detecting. Easier to hear rattlesnakes.

Time for gold nuggets? Wayne, Arizona gold nuggets are almost ninja-like in their ability to defy detection. :ph34r2: They require you to be trail-toughened, Cat-claw scratched and cactus pierced. :whaaaa: But, when you do sidestep the scorpion to avoid the rattlesnake perched precariously on the side of a desert wash while homing in on the sound of one, and then dig it out of Mother Earth – you’ll be a very proud Arizona Gold Prospector! :whoope: Dirty, dusty, scratched up and most likely bleeding, but Proud! :ROFL: - Terry

So watching for Rattlesnakes, wild pigs , all the plants that pick or stick you , is there time to look for the wiley little nugget !!

?
