  1. Battery Alternative For SDC 2300

    Looks good Wes, I just made a sleeve for the 18650 type, but havent been out with it yet.
  2. Early Minelab Gpz 7000 Issues?

    The main issue was the first release cost $10K! Otherwise they worked great!!!
  3. Definitely in need of a smaller coil for creek and bedrock hunting. Its no fun having to pack in 2 detectors.
  4. Rye Patch Claim Jumpers?

    Thats tough getting written permission these days. I know of a few big mining corporations that have no problem with casual use detecting on their land. Also a big timber co that I talked to, but for liability reasons they shy away from anything in writing in case someone is injured.
  5. Rye Patch Claim Jumpers?

    Im pretty sure that the odd sections there are BLM surface managed, but mineral rights are held by Newmont. Otherwise it would be solid claims on those sections. A few years ago a guy had a lease from them and dug up a bunch of the washes.
  6. Beautiful! I want a tour too :) Some nice pics here of the Colorado: https://collectorsedge.com/pages/the-colorado-quartz-mine-mariposa-county-california
  7. Nice collection of gold nuggets from the historic California Motherload country. Weight is 1/2 oz troy (15.55 grams) Priced at $45 per gram I would split and sell half or all Thanks, Wes
  8. Minelab Equinox Unveiled!

    I noticed in the vid that they have the boxes already made. That seems like a good indicator that the release may not be too far off, unless those were just one-offs for the show.
  9. Coil Cable Neatness Tip

    loose lips sink ships
  10. My sdc2300 is a simple machine too... and it loads my poke up! I'll be getting one of these!
  11. Claim Validity Question

    Thanks guys! Good post Clay, I appreciate that info!
  12. Claim Validity Question

    So if a Maintenance fee is paid to BLM, rather than the assessment work, nothing is required to be filed annual at the county level?
  13. Guys, what is the validity of claims not filed annually at the county level? I have seen a few claims that are current at BLM, but the owners do not file notices of intent to hold, or affidavits of assessment work at their local county recorders. My understanding was the county level recording is just as important as the BLM filing, yet some people seem to only file their annual renewals with BLM. What gives?
  14. Broke My Ferrite Ring

    Fred, not sure if re gluing effects performance, but if you get a new one, wrap with a bit of bubble wrap and tape to protect it, and you can continue to happily toss it on the ground. It works for me.
