    Prospecting in Northern Utah

    I live in West Jordan.
    Well, I made a trip to California and came back with a blue bowl. lol I have used it a little in my backyard with dirt that came from California. I really want to put it to use. I just have no one to go with that knows of some places to pan for gold. I currently only have like 4-5 gold pans and a blue bowl. But I want to get a sluice eventually. I have a bounty hunter pioneer101 MD. (cheap I know, but it was a christmas present like 4-5 years ago lol)

    What I am trying to say, does anyone know of some good places to go and want to go with me? lol

    Re: Prospecting in Northern Utah

    You might want to look into joining the Utah Gold Prospectors club. They have several claims here in Utah and a couple in Idaho and one in NV. Check out their web site
    http://www.utahgold.org/

    There is also a club up North that meets in Ogden. It looks like they are updating their site but here is the link.

    Good luck and try to stay dry!

    Re: Prospecting in Northern Utah

    I recently bought the book "A Guide To Gold Panning In Utah" By Alan Chenworth.

    So locations are not my big concern anymore. So moreless I am just looking for someone to go prospecting with.

    I have looked into joining the clubs, Just waiting for some funds to join.

    Re: Prospecting in Northern Utah

    I should be getting a late Christmas present from my mom within the week. (sluice)

    I am willing to go almost anytime. There are a few places that I would like to go to.

    One is down by Delta area, the other is a public panning area.

    Never had much luck up A.F. Canyon

    A F Canyon would that be American Fork never been or pan that one, can you tell me more about it,
    don't lough but the firs place i hit with pans and sluice was at Willard bay or i should say east of it and yes i did fine color there,
    but remember that i did not have the know how to back then, and have not been there since, reason was we moved to Texas but now we are back i will hit it in spring with the know how should do a lot better.
    Were abouts in A F Canyon??

    Re: Prospecting in Northern Utah

    If you go up American Fork Canyon you will want to go all the way up to Mary Ellen Gulch. If you plan on using your sluice up there don't forget to get your sluice/dredging permit. You can get it online at http://www.waterrights.utah.gov/strmalt/rds.asp. So Drakien, where did you get your blue bowl? Was it at Pioneer Motherload Mining Supply in Auburn? That's my old home town. I sure wish that I lived back there since that's where you can find some serious placer deposits. You also might want to try going to Marysville, UT up Bullion Canyon. It might be kind of hard to get up there right now with all the snow though. Same thing with AF Canyon. A lot of the roads are even closed right now. But once the snow melts and the water levels drop down to below flood level I would be happy to go with you. If you don't mind road trips Just outside of Prescott, AZ is good on the outskirts of town close to the hills. Gold and silver flake is just sitting on the ground in the dirt. You can see it shining in the sunlight.

    Re: Prospecting in Northern Utah

    You do not need a permit to pan. Utah is very restrictive about using a sluice or dredge though. There are only a few places where they can be used. Good luck.

    Re: Prospecting in Northern Utah

    Yes rjwmam I did get it from Pioneer Mining. Those guys have a good knowledge! Gave me a good place to go panning not to far from there that proved to be a good location. I will have to check Bullion out sometime. I have heard that willard canyon had some decent gold.

    Prescott sounds like it would be a road trip worth taking!

    YES I have been to Willard and pan up there and got some color in the pass and plan trying some more soon. IF you can still get up there?

    Re: Prospecting in Northern Utah

    Last I knew you could still get up there. The only thing that you have to watch out for is the rock quarry. I wonder if there is enough water to run a sluice up there? If that is even legal
    Yes there is gold in Utah.

    I had a friend over in So. Cal.
    Who was working himself to a "frazzle"
    He was dry washing
    He was finding a little .... and..an occasional small nugget
    I lent him my "Gold Stringer" (MD)
    He started finding lots of nice nuggets
    Needless, to say, he's NOT! Doing any more dry washing
    Check out Your "101" for/on nuggets
    Do this by getting some lead "bee bees" (shotgun buckshot, etc)
    Scatter them on the ground
    See how your "101" works on them
    If detects them....
    Forget the "pan" ( As "U" Know, that's a lot of REAL! HARD! Back Breaking WORK!)
    Check those creeks for nuggets !
    One! Nugget makes up a LOT! of dust!
