    Hello Panner, Living here in Michigan, I wanted to work around Juneau to find some good gold but, other Alaska miners say that Juneau was only a jump off point on the way to the gold fields north. How do you find the gold in the Juneau area? Thanks for any help. JOHN

    We’ve got a lot of claims in Rye Patch, NV. About 40 miles east of Lovelock out on the California Trail.

    We’re not in the area this week but if you decide to road trip a couple hours east of Reno we can hook you up with some ground. A friend of ours (a true local) let’s folks prospect for $20 a day. It’s a pretty sweet deal.

    They have been saying that for years. I have actually shown a guy off here a spot that was all good flour gold he said it was the best he’s seen. Glad I only showed him that spot. Lots of work here let me know when you’re in town I’ll show you the spot.

    Gold is definitely where you find it. I’m definitely not trying to rip that quote off .

    Well if you strike it good at the Rye Patch you can go loose it at the Nugget in Sparks or the butt huts in Dayton....lol

    Had a lot of good times in Juneau. Fell timber out on Chichagof Is. (sp?) in '84. When the job was over I flew into Juneau and worked on what we called "the spam can" in downtown Juneau kinda kitty corner to the capitol building. Red Dawg Saloon, Triangle Bar, Sportsman, etc. etc., probably still there. Enjoy your time down south and good luck in the Patch...!!!!!

    I heard people here just go down to places like rye patch or make the hour trip to California as it is so close from our town here. Never heard of one "in reno" per say, besides the specimen gold found nearby but it is all claimed land.
    If you want a chance try hunting under the bridges downtown I still see people hunting there often, the rumor says many men lose their wives in town due to the strip clubs, and off goes the ring!

    For those that haven't been here this is what the parking lot is like. You should see it after dark!

    First day I actually went there at night wasn’t as bad as I expected but I definitely got the breaking bad vibe.
