    Areas?

    Out of curiosity can you metal detect pretty much any where? Except someone's claim of course. But I saw someone detecting at a local park. And my friend said he does good in play grounds finding loose change. And for gold is it pretty much just blm or forestry land??

    Hey Taternut.

    As for metal detecting, you've got to do a little homework. But not too much.

    Check any posted rules at the park entrance. Or check online before venturing out.

    If metal detecting is not specifically prohibited, then go for it.

    Do not go one step further and contact the city clerk, police, etc. Because they don't know and will find a way to tell you, "no".

    Also, beaches ... a lot of fun. Another way to find gold. Notice when people come out of the surf, they naturally shake out their wet hands. Fingers shrivel a bit from the cooler water. Bye, bye bling from the finger. Learn to read the beach for the treasure line -- where the heavies fall. Awesome stuff.

    And as for the raw gold ... for me I joined a good club which has claims. And I live in the canyons -- and when I need a quick fix -- I go play where the roads are cut thru the hills. As I stand in front of a wall of layered dirt, I thank the civil engineers that dug ... down ... 30 feet ... for me.

    Traffic is slow on these boards due to the holiday. You'll prolly get some more responses, better tips, when folks return.

    I enjoy swinging through the deserts in the winter.Lots of public land, few people and beautiful weather. There is a book" Finding Gold in the Desert" and that is a good place to start. Northern Nevada may me closest to you, been hit hard by GPX's but should still be lots of crumbs left over for the GMT or GB PRO. I believe all the PIs still have a difficult time picking up the small quartz/gold specimens.

    Metal Detecting for Gold
    taternut,
    In our area, except for the National Recreation Areas, FS land is open to detecting. BLM and Bureau of Reclamation land is open. The Horsetown-Clear Creek Preserve is closed to metal detecting. As midnightmoon mentioned, be aware that people who don't know the law will sometimes automatically default to "no." I had this problem with the FS several months ago, so you might need to talk to a few different people. There is no law specifically prohibiting the use of metal detectors in public parks in our area, just fill in the holes and replace the grass plugs on top when you are finished. There are active claims on both BLM and FS land which you can look up at the county administrative building. I did this and recently got permission to detect on a large claim. Lastly, don't detect on private land without the owner's consent.
    When you go out, always bring a land status map with you and pay attention to where you are.

    The "Horsetown-Clear Creek Preserve" is a 27-acre recreation area along Clear Creek. Go to the BLM headquarters and buy the $3 map called "Surface Management Status 2005." They have many free maps as well.

    I work 12-10 :/ I think I'm going to just go up to swasy on Monday to try it out. Also I have a bunch of dredge equipment and a guy wants to trade my 10hp pump + hoses for a garret ultra gta 1000. From what I've read it's an older machine but it comes with headphones, a carrying bag, and a deep seeking coil. And I'm only asking 600 for the while dredge. I think I might do it so I have an extra so I can take friends out as well, plus free up some space in my garage

    Perfectly understandable. However I suggest that you do your utmost to schedule some time with Trinityau / Ray Mills as soon as mutually convenient. Ray is offering you a rare opportunity in the field to benefit from his nugget hunting expertise. That experience should be a tremendous help getting you off to a successful start in the hobby.

    Jim.
