Me and my wife are pretty new as well. First time out found a little gold just panning. The more the merrier. We just bought a keene sluice. So have very little knowledge. But if you would like to go, let us know. We pan up in cache valley area.

I am based in CO but will be in SLC for a weekend in may and a week around Independence Day. I would love to meet up either time in Northern Utah, probably that first week in July would be best as I can bring my Bazooka Goldtrap Prospector or Angus Mackirk Expedition then (driving over). I would really like to get a small sample of Utah gold to add to the gold I am gathering to make a ring for my wife (since her folks live in SLC)... And would love to meet fellow prospectors too!
If you are up for taking me to your second favorite spot*, please send me a private message or we could organize a group thing via this thread.
* I assume your first favorite spot might be your little secret!!

I just want you to know your posts are cool, I have been reading them because I have an Expedition and I'm looking into a bazooka and Utah has very fine gold, at least what I have researched and found is. I know this post is almost a year old but how often are you out in SLC? Also did you ever find enough gold for your wife's ring last year? I'm new to all this but i have got some gold.
I've gone up AF canyon up Mary Ellen Gulch, have you been up there? Do you plan on going there this year?
Have you had much luck in the Uintahs? I have tried the canyon up by Smith and Moorehouse with 0 success. Maybe I should try the Weber instead.
Has anyone tried a bazooka around here with success, the gold is so fine that I have found I would be concerned it would blow out of the box.

Have you tried way up American Fork canyon? Not in the Timpanogos cave area or you'll probably catch yourself some trouble. Keep heading up side canyons and gulches along the way and see what you can find. I did some panning there years ago and got bigger stuff than the powder in your bottle.
All the best,

I haven't tried Further East than that though.

Hi Brandon, Thanks for the encouragement on my posting habits...
Yes, I did get the ring made, I gave it to her on a special vacation trip in early November and she just loves it! I think I posted pics of it on here back in October.
I would strongly suggest the Bazooka Products for fine gold, they do a great job on the -50 mesh and smaller gold. We have a lot of that here in Metro Denver too. The fluid bed design does really well with fine gold and their products are quite well built. They've been a real game changer for a lot of prospectors here on tnet in recent years.
My in-laws live in the eastern foothills of SLC so I get over there a couple/few times a year. More these days since they can't travel as much to see us due to their advancing age (late 70's). I haven't done any prospecting in Utah yet but my sister-in-law found a really great book for me called A Guide to Gold Panning in Utah by Alan J. Chenworth. Definitely worth tracking down to give you lots of ideas on where to look. Here's the table of contents to give you a sense of the scope of it:
