Anybody know of good locations for finding minerals, crystals, gold, etc.?
I was told there are ranches, in Alabama or Arkansas, where you could pay the rancher so much a day to dig on his property or an existing mine. I was wondering if there were any places like that in S. Az, S. Ca., or maybe S. New Mexico.
Any info. would be appreciated.
Thank you.

In and around the Quartzite area is pretty good for metal detecting for nuggets.
Join the Gold Prospecting Association, and they have reserved areas for prospecting, and detecting, not accessible to the general public.
They will also provide maps to local areas of interest.

I have a few books that have maps to good spots in AZ back at my parents in Chandler. I'll pick them up this weekend and could e-mail you some maps/info then if you like.

Thanks for the responses, and apologies for the delay in responding. My dad had to be taken to the hospital, so I've been driving back and forth to Tucson every day and haven't had much time to play on the net.
While it looks like he's going to be okay, my plans for a trip to play in the hills for a week, or so, will have to be indefinitely postponed.
