  1. is it legal to detect in a colroado national forest?

    I should check into these forums more than every couple years, but you got to work your claims sometimes. To me the word prospect means with the intent to file a claim. You can rock collect in wilderness areas but you can not prospect as you can never file a claim.

  7. High Grade Silver
