General Non-Firearms Discussion / Re: States vs Fed on land ownership

Agreed.  Though how to bring it about in the current political climate is an interesting problem.  Sounds like another issue for the Convention of the States.

It won't be done on the national level.  Too many people that live on the other side of the country that think they know what is best for the land in the Western states they have never even been to.

Done some dredging and sluiceboxing and drywashing here in Az.   Its great for moving and processing large amounts of mud and gravel and silt and stuff but you find the gold itself will take on characteristic shapes as it is washed along a stream bed.  For instance, all the flakes we pulled out of a hole in the bend of a creek looked almost identical in shape even though they varied somewhat in size.  Turned out the best way to separate them was to wash them gently over the gentle ridges of an 18" plastic pan.  Nothing else seemed to work worth a damn.

  Yep, got a good wide pan, no exchange for experience but done a ton of youtube on "how to" videos.

   The way I look at it, if I find something, AWESOME! but I'm just out to have a good time trying.   Should get a couple of flakes, as there has been some found before.

Probably some garnet up there too if you look hard enough.  Don't forget to bring a pan.  They can be indispensable when going for your "fines".

Well...old topic.  Well last year I never got around to it.

THIS year, I'm getting into gold prospecting  :cool

Going out solo for practice tomorrow.

And planning two weekends this summer with two other amateurs.  Going to "prospect", but will involve muzzle-loaders, "old west" guns, camping, beer, whiskey, good times by all.   

Made a home-made sluicebox, got a factory Angus Mackirk sluicebox, almost got a rockerbox built.

I'll be interested in it. evne if I don't find anything it isn't real important.   

  And in this particular creek I'm going to be watching for sapphires, I guess about 25 years ago a guy did some prospecting and found a bunch of tiny sapphires, but decent quality. 

I might try and invite myself out. LOL It's only a 14 hour drive, I could make it in a day  :rotfl
