It blows the GPAA rag away, the GPAA advises people to enter old mines, magically turns "desert gold" into "mountain gold" and then back to "desert gold" all in the same year and also will give you directions to places that take you 80 miles out of your way to get to an easy spot
They also write articles about the "Bradshaw Mountains" and then put in mountain pictures with the disclaimer that the mountains in the picture may or may not be the Bradshaws WTF
The ICMJ publication is far superior to the GPAA publication

The GPAA is not a bad organization, they actually do a lot for prospectors, they are the only nationwide club / organization, and to be honest have brought many thousands of guys into this sport, through the TV programs on their TV channel.

I completely agree Chris

To get the ICMJ prospecting and mining Journal, you have to either:
1) Go to a prospecting shop, most will have it;
(pretty sure Travis' shop there in Phoenix has it)
2) Some rock shops carry it (some do, some dont);

No problem at all Fred, I have nothing against Chris or AZO.
Only met Chris once for about 5 seconds, seemed like a plesant fellow
I just don't like the fact AZO won't acknowledge the fact (stated by Minelab) that NuggetFinder coils can damage GP Extremes , seen it myself twice.
Minelab admitted the coil was the isuse to Jim P. and Laszlo
Yep I'm riding a dead horse into the ground but as a GP Extreme owner I think they should at least state this on their website

You can get the ICMJ at at Barnes & Noble book stores, I get mine from the libary book sales because someone donates them every month. There are others that have some gold stories and Eastern & Western Treasures has a special Gold & Silver issue every year. The links are:
http://forum.treasurenet.com/ This forum has sections on dredging ,panning & sluicing, just scroll down.
http://www.treasuren.../se=Silver-Gold You can get the current and past issues here.
Action Mining at one time Printed some very good practical mining magaizines, you can sometimes find back issues on eBay or online used magazine sellers.
ICMJ is the best , it used to be just the plain " California Mining Journal" and you can find back issues easily, even complete sets ( Don't I wish I owned a complete set) .
The best issue (In my opinion) that ICMJ ever printed in recent time is the one in the picture.
