The club doesn't own any claims... more geared towards educating members on doing the proper research to find their own. We do have a couple members who are generous enough to host get togethers on their claims, mostly for lifetime members but occasionally opened up to annual members. Not aware of anything out in your neck of the woods.

I havent done any gold panning or sluicing at all, but i know there are several people who do go up there and have found some flakes. One thing to know in colorado is you wont be finding nuggets like you could in cali. Mostly fine flakes and dust. I would check streams aaround you for black sands. See if any rivers/streams have headwaters in gold producing areas. Gold has had millenia to erode and wash 50-100 miles.....an easy task. Southeast of you in baca county there was a copper mine that produced some gold out of sandstone they mined. Check sites like mindat for mine/resource locations, then be sure to research mineral rights to any area you plan on digging.

Welcome to the forum!

Im out here in Pueblo which is not too far from you. However, you're only going to find baculites, other types of ammonites, Inoceramus shell fossils and petrified wood in this area plus out there in Fowler. It just gets dustier out your way.

You can walk the Arkansas River (which runs past Fowler under the 167 bridge)


Attached Image


until the confluence with Fountain Creek in Pueblo and then head North.

Most of the water is really low right now. I don't know over the past 2 weeks however as I haven't been out since. Both waterways are low enough you can zigzag back and forth in shorts and only get the bottom wet but now it is cold as hell and I would only wear waders. You can find along this route lots of petrified wood; so much of it that you can take a 50 gallon trashcan and fill it up in an 8 hour day. I have found logs larger than 6 feet in length but I had no possible way of extracting it and when I went back the next time it was gone. (Bring a sledge to at least get a chunk if you can.)

Between Fowler and Pueblo I would imagine there would be increasingly less and less stuff to find. When you travel from the confluence Northwards, you find increasing amounts of goodies. I have a few pieces of polished, tumbled Smoky Quartz and Amazonite that I have found on the Fountain Creek exclusively under this bridge near Wal-Mart:

Right now they are doing some kind of sewer line work down that direction and are digging up a portion of the Fountain Creek South of that bridge. This is digging up goodies! It's a short jaunt but is worth it on these cold snowy days. It is effortless to walk the bank and not get wet, too.

Onward West toward Fremont -- you can go Northward toward Cripple Creek mining district on Phantom Canyon Road but after a recent flood there was a washout in the road there. You can get around it but there is a feeble attempt to block the road. Canon City -- when you get past the big turn after the Historic Prison on the Western side of Skyline Drive it starts to get mineralized. As you go outward past the Gold Mine Rock Shop:

There is some information for you, just a little bit!

Welcome to the forums and Club Jason! thumbsupsmileyanim.gif

There isn't very many opportunities on the plains for quartz crystals or gemstones per say but there is other minerals of interest near you. In fact I tried to go down your way last weekend but the snow kept me from going (here in Denver). If the weather holds I still plan to go this Saturday. I will be looking for petroglyphs and septerian nodules that have Calcite crystals sometimes with clear and well formed Barite crystals. I have not been down there yet but have a good idea of some public lands to start the search. I may throw out an invite in the protected forums for club members.
