Learn what it takes to stake a claim.

Chris D’Angelo, a reporter for the Huffington Post, wondered what it took to stake a mineral claim on federal land. So he set out to find all the necessary steps.

The tracks of mule deer and cattle criss-cross a maze of red rock, cacti and parched-looking shrubs. The only signs of human life are the contrails from airlines overhead and the sound of an occasional car buzzing along State Route 95.

Found another gold site in Chicken, Alaska!

chickengoldcampThere’s tons of stuff to do at the Chicken Gold Camp and Outpost in Chicken, Alaska. Guests staying at the Chicken Gold Camp can pan or mine on all of our nearby claims for a daily fee. They allow use of pans, metal detectors, hand sluices, small suction dredges and high bankers (2.5″ max). Their rates are nominal, and you get to keep everything you find! They have had many 1oz nuggets found on their claims. Get you summer plans ready, it’s going to be a busy year in Alaska!

New Gold adventure in Colorado!

goldadventuresllcOk, this one is a little different but sounds very cool. It’s called Gold Adventures LLC.  Retired Air Force Colonel, Randy, will let you use his equipment; and will guide and instruct you for 1/2 to full day excursions. What?! Yeah, I know. Pretty dang cool. His prices are way crazy cheap, so be sure to book your summer trip quick before he fills up!

New Gold adventure on the EAST COAST!

NEPA - bruins-nuggetWhat!? East Coast?? Yeah, over in New England Jim and his buddies are teaching classes on how to pan and sluice for gold. And look at the size of the nuggets. Pretty good, if you ask me. I would love to see that in my pan!

They’re taking booking for next season, so be sure to reserve your spot early. I think I might have to take an East Coast trip next summer. Visit my daughter in Minnesota, and swing  on by New England for some GOLD!

Check out their info here.
