Hi all.
I am new to this site and new to the world of prospecting, i have recently joined the GPAA and i am going to visit some friends in Pagosa Springs this May and was wondering if any one knows of a place to recreationaly pan around Pagosa?
So far all the research i have done shows nothing in the way of colors around Pagosa...is this true?
Is there a place close by Pagosa that i might check out?
I know there is some GPAA claims up around Idaho Springs that are supposed to be pretty good, but was looking for something closer to pagosa.
Any help would be greatly appreciated...not looking to stike it rich but wanting to have some fun and find some colors.

Thank You
Trunkhaus

Hi Trunkhaus, welcome to the world of prospecting and the CP website.
You have a great load of fun and learning ahead......and in the great outdoors.....SWEEEET! happy.gif

I'm not really aquainted with that area very well but I've heard tell there are folks finding gold in several areas that aren't too far from Pagosa springs.
There is a place called rattlesnake gulch west of Durango a bit that you might be able to check out. Sorry I don't have specifics but maybe someone else who's been there can give some tips soon.

The area north of Pagosa has a very interesting mining history too. Hopefully you have several places to check before you head out in May. wink.gif
Gunnison has some gold bearing areas that might not be all too far a drive for you either.

Have a great trip and make yourself right at home around the CP site.
