I suggest you invest in Chris Ralph's book...Fists Full of Gold....it is a comprehensive overview that answers many of the questions you have that can be answered...there are way too many variables to answer some of your questions...

You need to do some serious research, join a local club and get a taste of reality before you buy a claim...my Grandfather said "gold mines and meant for selling" and he was to my knownledge a honest man...many people selling claims are wolves feeding on the lambs of the world...buyer beware!

Chris Fred speaks the truth.

Also you can make yourself money without owning a claim.

Some clubs you can join have very productive grounds it just takes some knowledge and perserverance to accomplish your goals.

Basic knowledge is what you need first.

Read Read and then Read some more, joining a club that has active outing schedules will get you rolling for hands on experience and will also answer some of the questions you will have from reading and research.

Welcome, good luck an Hapy Huntn
