My name is Ty, I'm a USAF Veteran and Prospector. I'm a full time student, which means I'm on break from school til the 17, when summer school starts up. I'm trying to find people in Fresno who want to go prospecting. I am an ex-carpenter. I work really hard, and for long periods of time. If you go out mining with me you WILL feel it for days afterward. I have all the equiptment to highbank except the truck. If you have a truck and are interested hit me up!

Please dont waste my time if your not a hard worker. I use to stand walls for a living, I'm a machine when I work, and I move a ton of material! I don't want a partner who watches me work or is tired after we've unloaded all my gear and cant make it the rest of the day.

I'm trying to find some gold! And I can spend all day in the sun doing it! Hope I don't sound mean, I'm just trying to weed out the people who are thinking of trying prospecting out for the first time with me. I'm not panning! I'm a small mining operation. I only pan when testing and clean up. All other times I'm a steam-shovel! And I have fun doing it!!

I thought guys would be coming out of the wood work when I made my post. Nobody wants to go prospecting? I guess I scared everybody with the hard work comment! Sure wish I lived in Elk Grove where the only hard worker lives! lol

Whats up Chuck?

Ty, almost all of our members are located in the east bay area (hence the East Bay in the title), so I doubt the lack of interest is due to the request for hard workers. :/


If you want to come up this way (anything north of Yosemite) to do some mining, I'm sure you'll get a better response.

Hello Ty,  first, welcome!  I keep wanting to post here but I get distracted easily. :)   You may want to hook up with a local GPAA chapter in Fresno,  the Central Valley Prospectors.   http://www.cvprospectors.org    Like Rich said,  we are hard workers, at least most of us.  ;)  If you are interested in making the trek, our next regularly scheduled meeting is tomorrow, June 6.  Details are in the welcome page.   Good luck and hope to meet you.

Yeah, I was just playing. My buddy Dale at California Sluice Box told me to get on here. He said you guys were a better club to be a part of.

CVP will kick you out if you miss a meeting. I have a family that comes first, you know what I mean?

I know I can't be the only member from Fresno! Or am I... lmao
