The state sites are now active. The site features a calendar of events for the entire region and a map were people have found gold in our area. I also ported over a couple of my posts regarding gold in Minnesota and North Dakota.
The forum is also off to a good start thanks to support from the Minnesota Twin Cities prospectors. FORUM.UMWGOLD.COM
I started a new site for the Minnesota gold prospectors. Since a frame work needed to be built we decided to cover the entire Upper Midwest.
The forum will allow users around the area to communicate regarding prospecting in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, Iowa, and the UP of Michigan. We hope to grow a nice community for the region’s gold prospectors, hobbyist metal detectors, Treasure hunters and Rockhounds.
Each State also gets its own information site with a central area for scheduling across the upper Midwest.
Please click on the title of this post to join the forum.
The state sub-sites will come online as the content for each site becomes available. If you are affiliated with any of the regions prospector clubs and would like to contribute information please let me know here or on the forum. My user name is Moto or Ben depending on the site.
New post on how to find placer gold in Minnesota and other glaciated states in the Upper Midwest (Click on the Image Below). The post also provides information on the historical locations of gold discoveries in Minnesota past and present.
