    Where is your claim? Southern, Central, Northwest Arizona? What type of drywasher do you have? Recirculating sluice? Ever done this before?

    Close to mayer AZ. I have been gold prospecting for 2 years now, mostly dredging. This will be my first time drywashing. I was going to buy a keene 151 drywasher. It will be me and 3 other friends.

    Terry, Mayer is southeast of Prescott. Between Wickenburg and Prescott. I've been through there but no digging. It should be a good place for him. Hope he didn't get soaked for the claim. There are SO MANY coming up for claiming with only the cost of filing. Ok, I got bit recently.... but I'm not out thousands. THAT would be hard to swallow! I hope that works for you Mu50tang. Good luck. Let us know. (a PM would get TimC or me to come and help you out when you get here. We are less than an hour away) TTC

    I drove Hwy 93 last weekend between Kingman and Phx.... wow I like that out there! I grew up in Ariz, Flagstaff actually. That was the first time I had driven 93.... made me want to go out and buy a drywasher for sure!

    Before you spend too much money on a name, check out Bret Chilcott out of Chandler, AZ. - AZ Desert Gold He builds the machines for our school, and in my opinion they are the best at keeping the gold in the tray. We call the "Pocket Rockets," because they are compact, light and fast! I think you are a little above the trend in Mayer, but I hope I'm wrong. Big Gold!

    As you found out, the desert areas along that part of 93 are BEAUTIFUL! A rugged beauty the Flag forests don't have. Take care. TTC

    I I was looking at a map and did see the name of a creek running through it but the previous owner said there wasn't any water on the property. The owner did claim to have found some pickers and an occasional small nugget when they were using it, but who knows how much truth there is to that.

    There is an oft quoted saying that at the bottom of a gold mine is a liar. You will soon learn if the claim is worth it. TTC

    Incidently, you know you will pay maintainance fees every year, right? Per 20 acre piece, right? At (I believe) $140 per 20.... or file waivers. I don't think you got a patented claim. Did you do the filing with Feds and county? Just looking out for ya. TTC

    From what I've read here you're going to need a good respirator if you intend drywashing. Me, I'd bring enough water to run a recirculating sluice.

    Good luck to you! Just being outside in beautiful country is a reward in itself.

    They just passed that last year http://www.blm.gov/wo/st/en/info/new...7_27_2012.html
    Used to be one fee per claim now it's based on acreage.

    Yes, a bane to the big guy. A plus to us little guys! The big guys are dumping claims left and right! TTC
