Newbie here--lives in Tempe and loves to hike in the desert. I have a metal detector and want to start prospecting but don't know where to go. Any information on exactly where would be a good place to prospect would be most appreciated.

Welcome ydnar

If you are looking for prospecting supplies on your side of town there is Promac Tresure in Apache Junction, he has a lot of good prospecting books and tools. He has moved west of his previous address a block or two but the phone number should be the same. I will attach it to the post (no I do not have any affiliation with them they just treated my wife and I right) :thumbsupanim .

Very Respectfully

I am assuming the former owner -Elaine Schrader retired and sold it to someone else.

Promack has moved from the old store into the old NAPA store 1 mile West of their old location.

I would say that Elaine did retire. It is an older couple who are members of Superstition Mountains club who own it now. They and their son run the place.

There is also, "A & B Prospecting" at 3929 East Main St. Mesa,AZ in the "GODFREY SQUARE" shopping ctr on the south side of East Main St. Between Val Vista and Greenfield. I would like to extend a hearty WELCOME to this hobby of prospecting. I am a menber of the Roadrunner Prospecting Club and lived here year round . PM me and maybe we can get together some weekend and get out to some claims. I have a metal detector, assorted pans, high banker, spiral wheel, and gas vac. So I can show you what I know and we can learned together. The Roadrunner have outing every 3rd Saturday of the month. Joining a club is probably the best way to go for getting access to claims, meeting peoples, and learning the hobby. Almost everybody will share their experiences and their opinion quite readily. Club menberships fees run anywhere from twenty bucks to a couple hundred bucks. I work a second shift, Monday through Friday. I am available most Sat, and Sunday.

More Au to you, Robert
