Gold Fever in Louisiana!!!

Hi All,

First post here.

My name is Gerald, I've got gold fever ever since I lived in Colorado. A few years back I had to move to Louisiana to care for my parents, I'm a member of the GPAA but there isn't anywhere in Louisiana to go prospecting! I'm looking for someplace in one of my neighboring states to go prospecting.
The mining guide is OK but I'm kind of looking for recommendations from people who have worked the claims and streams so I don't waste a lot of gas and time looking in the wrong areas. It doesn't matter to me if it is a GPAA claim or just a public area that allows basic prospecting (Sluice, shovel, and pan). I'm just itching from this fever and looking for the closest place that I can expect to find color in my pan.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Mail ordering concentrates to pan in my back yard is ok but doesn't compare to the real thing.

Thanks,

Gerald

Ok I'm kind of dense sometimes. Sorry I just posted this to an Alaska Prospecting forum. I never claimed to be the brightest bulb in the bunch......

Please disregard this post with my apologies.
Any directions to a Forum that would be appropriate to post this in would be appreciated.

Thanks again and sorry again,

Gerald

P.S.
Sometimes a Fever can make you do strange things......

Hey Gerald,
You may get an answer here, but the proper place for your post would be goldprospectors.org. That's the GPAA site. Got a big forum there with lots of folks from everywhere.
You did well by coming to this site though. The archives here have so much technical info on prospecting and mining. I feel much better off reading the wisdom of miners and real prospectors here than the opinions of wanna-be miners (like me) that I find on the GPAA site. While both sites are very good, I think more of the folks here know what they're talking about.
Good Luck,
Tom

Use the search function on this site. Keywords "mama's list". There is some gumumint documents on that neck of the woods. They are listed by state, no particular order. Say thanks to steppegold for posting them.

Very funny! When looking after "Louisiana Gold" with google, one gets much tabasco and lots of lost treasuries. Huckelberry Finn had also a say about that, if memory helps.

Good luck!

That's Thursday the 27th. Lots of good food, fun and always gold there to behold. I don't make the meeting much anymore myself because of my work, but it is well worth attending.

Thanks so much to everyone for all the great information and the kind words. I'm glad my I posted this here (even though I was suffering a case of brain lockup) the response has been great and I'm truly impressed and pleased with the kindness I have received from the members of this forum.

Thanks to you all.
