I should say before going out to an area to look for gold, check to be sure that it’s public or BLM land and that you are allowed to gold hunt in that area. It’s best to check with the local BLM office. Also, there are many active gold claims in these areas. You do not want to be claim jumping. So, do your research first, before heading out and be sure to stay off active claims and private land. Read more »
