    Re: gem hunting in Utah?

    I plan on trying Mill Creek. It's on I70 east of the I15 junction. The other places I have tried I wasn't supposed to use a sluice. Mostly I've used it to run small amounts of rock that I sampled from different mines.

I guess if I joined a club I would find out that kind of information before I get myself a ticket.
    The permit is good for a year but it limits your activities to 45 days. Not sure how they would keep track of that. If your prospecting leads you to places that are not listed as part of the RD&S permit you can always submit a stream alteration permit and hope that it gets approved.

    Good place but be aware that most of the area is under claim.

    Re: gem hunting in Utah?

    Cool! Sounds good! I would enjoy going up that way.

    I made a trip to beaver dam wash with the UGPC today. I didnt have much luck, but there was one person that got a nice little piece about the size of rice. So there is gold! I just have yet to find it. :P lol

    How did the group operation do? I went with the UGPC last year to Notch Peak and worked the group dig and was somewhat disappointed.

    Re: gem hunting in Utah?

    They didn't find a good place to even bother setting up for a common.
    So they just spent the weekend looking for a place.

    Re: gem hunting in Utah?

    Sounds like a bummer. I am thinking hard about joining this club on its next meeting (next week). I wonder how much benefit i can get from it though I would hate to take the time and money to pack up and drive a distance only to wander around the desert for a couple of days. I will have to check the website and see where the next outing is. That may change my mind.

    Re: gem hunting in Utah?

    Yeah, I am sure i will join. the last couple days of decent weather has me thinking about detecting and panning. I think the next outing for the club is over Memorial weekend in Nevada. I will have to see what equipment will be needed to participate (ie; is there water there?).

    Re: gem hunting in Utah?

    They supply equipment for the common. So whatever you take is what you want. I am not sure on if there is water or not, that is something you could ask one of the main guys at a meeting. If Dave is there he should know. If the snow ever melts off the mountains we should hit up AF Canyon.
    Yes there is gold in Utah.
