https://www.trailsoffroad.com/trails/2119-greaterville-road-fr-229 This is a relatively short well maintained dirt road that travels through some very scenic Ranch land and forest. This was once a thriving mining community which relied on hydraulic mining techniques to extract gold from the hills. (Think Clint Eastwood's 1985 Pale Rider which showed this technique) Unfortunately, this only worked in the spring and monsoon summer when water was available. The best part remaining of Greaterville is the cemetery, which is near the end of the trail. Not much remains of the old ghost town itself, and what there is, is on the gated-off private property.

The Radio mining claim is located in the highly coveted Cherry Mining District, which is known for producing native gold from small, hand worked mines over the last 250 years. The Radio Claim is made up of a shaft and adit and some small trench workings. Supporting the workings are the foundations of a small processing plant, which included some sort of hoist. There are also hand built walls and roads, and the remains of an old miners cabin which appears to have had a small smelter inside.

The Verde Combination claim is set in the high hills adjacent to the historic mining town of Jerome, Arizona. Much of Jerome and the surrounding mines is and has been private for many, many years. The area is known for its deposits of copper, silver, gold and lead. The Verde Combination was so named for the Verde Combination company who originally located the mines.

As a group of treasure hunters from the flatlands, we have to get creative finding treasure. Whether it is gold, old coins, or old relics, if it is considered treasure, we will hunt for it. Don't forget to check out our blog for more updated prospecting and treasure hunting information! www.highplainsprospectors.com/blog Although we live in an area almost void of gold, and we typically relic hunt, or shoot for jewelry and coins, prospecting is still one of our favorite treasure hunting activities...it's the ultimate treasure. We do get out periodically in the surrounding states to search for gold. But since we are based in Kansas, rich gold-bearing earth is not really in abundance. In fact, the largest piece of gold I have personally seen pulled out of the ground in this area is this piece called the "Little Kansas Picker" found in Northeastern Kansas. It was a relatively flat piece measuring in at about 5mm long. It is the first "picker" sized piece I have ever seen in Kansas. The fellow prospector that found this said it took him quite a while to find it and it is the largest he has seen around here as well. The largest piece I have found in this region is this large flake only about 45 minutes north of Kansas City. On the trip in this video, we decided to focus our efforts in Arizona. Arizona has produced over 16 million troy ounces of gold and is ranked among the top states for gold production. After doing a little research we decided to dial down to the Rich Hill area near Congress which has a famous gold prospecting and its mining history. Located within the Weaver mining district, the area is well known for its "Potato Patch" area where gold was once so plentiful it is said you could once pick up gold nuggets the size of potatoes on the bare surface of the ground. We arrived on Thursday afternoon and got checked into a nice little motel called the Sierra Vista Inn, located in Congress it is well maintained of and highly recommended. We would stay here the first night and get ready for the rest of our adventure which would take place out in the rugged desert. Prospecting methods and techniques can vary greatly from one location to another. Although we have access to a ton of Arizona mining claims through the Gold Prospectors Association of, and we would certainly visit some, we thought it would be best to spend at least a day or two with the pros to learn how to prospect this particular area. Our guide was Bob from Frontier Prospecting in Congress, AZ. Bob and the owner Mel have been prospecting in the area for ¬¬several years. Bob volunteers his time to helping people find gold and together they have several private mining claims which they have the exclusive right to mine for gold. They do this as well lease the claim out and give lessons on mining and metal detecting. After speaking to a few different outfitters we chose Frontier for their personalities, professionalism, and the fact they have properties that have turned out some pretty darn good nuggets! We only had a few hours of daylight (since Arizonans don't recognize daylight savings time). So, we decided to cruise over to the GPAA claim named "Lucky Linda", which had gained some notoriety as the place where the famous "Tongue Nugget" was found. This long tongue shaped nugget weighed in around 2 pounds! On our way we stopped into the Lost Dutchman's Miners Association camp (which is the sister organization of the Gold Prospectors Association). We visited a moment with the caretaker, double checked our route to Lucky Linda, and headed on down the road to find some gold. After only a short distance further, it was quite clear that this area was truly a gold producing area of the country. There were some serious mining operations set up. There were bulldozers, enormous excavators, and even water retention pits being set up to run full-scale mining operations. There were also small prospecting camps scattered along the hillsides for the weekend-warriors or hobby prospectors. It was really an eye opening experience to how integral mining has always been to this area. Once we arrived and found an area a little ways into the claim we geared up and started swingin' the sticks splitting up to cover a wider area. We were hunting with our Garrett AT Pros that evening. This machine is typically used for relic hunting, coin shooting, or jewelry hunting where as the AT Gold
There is no better place to learn how to prospect for gold first hand than at a GPAA Gold and Treasure show! and this video has everything you need to know about what goes on at the events. Dozens of vendors displaying hundreds of mining products as well as experts in the mining industry, including Jeff Williams, Dr. Tones 24k, Mike Pung, Chris Ralph, and Bill Southern, giving detailed seminars.

11.17.2012. Here's some scenes from the road, the old Vulture Mine in Wickenburg AZ. It's pretty much looks like an old west mining ghost town. This is high definition [HD] video footage for Youtube. I did a little gold nugget metal detecting in areas that weren't off limits. Wickenburg seems mostly a tourist town, not much prospecting going on today. Peace, Mark Allen Channel (4GUESTS.COM)

Beautiful day on shakedown cruise to Greaterville. Beeped for 30 minutes and dug some bullets, etc. I am dedicating this treasure hunting season to David Scott Lare "Jocko" whose noble service gives us the freedom to enjoy public lands, and to loving wives like Celia whose home front devotion keeps the soldiers fighting.

A cowboy singing - I've been here twice because this is one of my favorite old Gold Rush towns and it's very beautiful here. They keep the main drag blocked from vehicles - only pedestrians and horses are allowed. These original buildings are well preserved. The LDMA and GPAA has some claims down in the Stanislaus River but most of the gold from this area was gotten right in the heart of Columbia! I couldn't find any gold because of lack of water (the same problem that the old timers had so they had the water flumed in) but next time I come I'll take some buckets home or do some drywashing lol!

Short clip of a longer video I made in July of 2011 at the GPAA Claim Nancy's Gold in the Tahoe National Forest. Some heavy rains in 2012 buried the place I was digging with another 3 to 4 feet of overburden. I had finally made it to the bedrock surface and didn't get much of it cleaned before the river remodeled the area. The best tip here is to stay on bedrock. Even better if the bedrock has been locked up with overburden for a very long time. I used a steel pipe and Come-A-Long to get down there.

2032, the prophecies have caused riots and chaos. Detectives Marx and Durst are caught up in a mystery of body parts that are washing up on Gulfport’s shores. After some investigation, they discover records of missing limbs ignored by their predecessors and the forgotten people missing around the world. Their investigation leads them to a creepy stranger who is inquiring about a Double Eagle gold coin, the rarest coin on Earth. No one knows where this stranger comes from or why he is hot on the same trail as the Detectives. In the southwest of the Navajo Nation, Officer Ankti struggles with his own mystery. The land is changing and there are strange tracks leading into the abandoned mines. Elder Peta Ptaysanwee tries to help Ankti understand his spiritual heritage but he can’t see it. He is lost in his own land. But no one seems to be interested in the stranger or solving the loss limbs. All law enforcement agencies are caught up in cleaning up the city from the Camping prophecy hysteria. Chief of Police orders the two Detectives off the case, eventually suspending them. A mother of a lost son pleads with Detective Fiona Marx to find the killer and bring her justice. Two Detectives have to make a choice to go against their orders and chase the stranger across state lines, eventually to lead them into Arizona, in the Navajo Nation. Bodies are piling up across the southern United States and it compels the detectives to follow the clues into the heart of ancient Earth’s secrets that only the gods foretold. Will the stranger lead to the final answer about the murdered people through experimentation, the answers to the Double Eagle coin, the truth of Jenson’s followers, or bring them all to their doom?
