Stop in at I believe its the Miners Depot in Q and they should be able to steer you onto a claim. There are several different clubs around Q. Wish we were going with you !

If you don't belong to the GPAA, you might look into joining that organization. They have properties all over the US that are open to members.

I've watched a handful of YouTube videos comparing various metal detectors designed for dry gold mining... looks fun.  Having just retired this past summer, the "to do list" is growing.  Have fun and good luck!
