Using Google Earth and Other Maps
November 2012 by Chris RalphLast month, one of our readers requested an article regarding the possible use of Google Earth for prospecting research. It was a good idea, so here it is.
The story began in a southern Arizona mountain range...
What makes the difference between successful prospectors and those who struggle? It just seems like there are some guys who stumble on gold no matter what they do. Are they just lucky?
I have a bunch of ideas about what to do in the near term and then other thoughts about what things might look like a few months from now when I hope the situation will look a lot better.
A week later, a small team of us hit it again, and this time the gold really showed up.
Please note that new mining claims filed on or after September 1, 2019, will be subject to the new fee schedule.
We soon found that our discovery post and other claim markers were gone and replaced with new posts and a notice of location with an earlier date than had been on our notice of location.
