  • dave7238: Hello, I'm a new member to this forum. My name is Dave, and I live in Downey, close to the 5 and 605 interchange. I have a couple of years experience in prospecting, but have recently decided to become more involved. First step was to join the New 49er's in Northern California, but I'm also looking for prospecting partners in SoCal. I'm a rock and ice climber with a long resume' of climbs. So....if you're looking at a prospecting spot that's hard to access due to cliffs etc....I'm your guy! If anyone is interested in partnering, send me an e-mail. I do not do any metal detecting, but love working streams and banks. Hiking into locations is not a problem. 20 miles in a day is not unusual for me. Obviously that isn't a prospecting day, but the point is, I'm in shape to do most anything. I have a power sluice that I'm in the process of converting to a highbanker/dredge setup. Let's go prospecting!!

  • KevinR: Hello everyone I am new to this group I have been prospecting for just over a year now.. Just wondering when is the next outing? I did not see any for Oct. I did see the posting for the plp Oktoberfest but that was it.
