Stuart - Welcome to the Forum.

 

Could you please expand a bit on what it is exactly that you are seeking help on ? For example, the way of Life you speak about, I assume that you are referring to Prospecting ? And the dream ? 

 

Please be more specific if possible and I am sure that some of the members here will have a few words of advice.

 

Steve.

Thanks steve

 

Thank you for the update i hope i can cover every thing you have asked of here...

 

 

 

I am looking for help in Prospecting maybe being about to work along side a work force. Where i could work from the easy task's set for the day and work my way around getting to know how to do things.  

 

I dont know if i can ever be able to go at in by my self. But just knowing i can be a good effective team player to the man in charge would be good enuff for me to make my dream come alive.

 

I do know the basic of what you need to carry out prospecting. and when it comes to hands on working in all diffrent sorts of weather.

Also i am use to working long hours with little sleep.  

 

I know i am asking alot of some one as they have never met me or even spoken all i ask is a chance to prove to any one out there that there choice by giveing  me a chance wouldn't end up to be a mistake ... ;-)

stuart,

 

Welcome to the forum! :)

 

I am curious about a few things.

 

Are you currently residing in the US?

 

If you are not a resident, would you be planning on entering the US on a tourist visa or work visa?

 

What is your work experience?

 

What level of education have you attained?

 

All of these questions are relevant to anyone that might be in a position to bring an entry-level worker into their employ.

Stuart - Apologies for the slow response. Work ( Our Day Jobs ) keeps us all very busy sometimes. The Budget for next Summer has to be made usually during Winter for those of us who don't get enough Gold to give up our Day Jobs so we have to work to keep funding our Exploration / Prospecting. Prospecting can be an expensive exercise, depending of course on how large you want to make it. There is also an element of risk involved so are you willing to bet the House ?   

 

Firstly, it sounds like you really wan't to get involved in some form of Prospecting / Mining. I think you must realize of course that you're on a US-based Forum. Being in the UK leaves you at a bit of a disadvantage as the UK isn't known much for it's Mining opportunities apart from the fact that Coal used to be mined there for hundreds of years. Kurt makes a good suggestion above. Start by talking to more people who are actively involved in your passion. In addition to the group Kurt mentions, I was actually going to suggest joining the GPAA. ( Google it )

 

Geowizard also makes some good points and probably the most important being that you will find it extremely difficult to get a Work Visa to simply, with all due respect, come and play around at somebody's Placer Mine because you like Prospecting. Sorry to rain on your parade but the harsh reality is that it is just not that easy. Having said that, what I would further suggest is that it may be worth the cost, time and effort to book yourself in on one of the GPAA Prospecting Trips to get yourself better informed about how things work here. A Visa for that ( GPAA Trip ) is the same as a Holiday whereas a Work Visa to go and Work at a Placer or Hardrock Mine is very difficult unless of course you are a highly qualified specialist who cannot be found here.

 

Forgetting about the actual Prospecting or Mining for a moment, perhaps you need to look at your options first and foremost from a Geographical perspective given that the UK is so limited. i.e. Where am I going to look for the Gold ? Where has Gold been found in the past ? ( I am assuming that you want to Prospect / Mine for Gold ? ) Make yourself a List. Ask yourself, self, where can I actually go to turn my dream to reality ? If you're on a British Passport, which Countries on your Geographical List actually welcome British Nationals without too much paperwork ? I can think of several straight up. Ghana, Australia, Guyana and possibly even Canada. ( Commonwealth ) Process of elimination isn't it ? How do most Prospectors select an area to prospect ? We might start with a State Map for example whereas your Map is the Map of the World. Of the dozens of Countries in the World, try and get it down to a short-list of say 4-6. Remember, friendly to British Nationals. Preferably English-speaking.

 

Once you've done that, let me know then we move on.

 

Good luck.
