  5. Rye Patch ?

    Thanks Fred. I am checking out info on My Land Matters and i think i will send an e-mail to the Nevada BLM and see if i can buy any good maps of the area from them.
  6. Rye Patch ?

    Thank you for the thread info Steve. I will check it out.
  7. Rye Patch ?

    Thanks Strick. I plan on having two or three spares for the truck and one for the trailer. I am familiar with the heat as i am originally from Tucson, Az. Wasn't aware there were claims all over the place though.
  8. Rye Patch ?

    I have heard a lot about Rye Patch Nevada and now that we are retired the wife and i are thinking about taking a trip down there so i can do some detecting for nuggets? We have a 4x4 PU and small 18' camp trailer. Are there areas you can get to with a trailer and set up close to where you want to hunt. Is it even possible to get a trailer in there? Can anyone go and hunt? We are thinking about some time in May, weather in Oregon and over the passes permitting. Any chance some of you might be there and be willing to give a new comer some tips on nugget detecting. I have a Minelab GPX 4000, a Minelab Gold Monster 1000 and a Whites Gold Master V-sat. all of which i need a lot more experience with. Hope to see some of you there.
  9. Fair Price For GPX 4000

    Thanks Steve, that makes me feel better.
  10. Fair Price For GPX 4000

    I wasn't asking because i have one for sale. I was asking because i just bought one and wondered if it was a decent price, which was $1350
  11. Fair Price For GPX 4000

    Thank ya kindly for the response.
  12. What would be a Fair price for a nice GPX 4000 with control box cover, signal enhancer, 3 of the small batteries for use with enhancer and a charger, and 3 coils, a new 10" Commander DD, a 7"x14" Nugget finder mono, and a 6"x8" nugget finder mono? Thanks for any replies and info.
  13. AT Gold Coil ?

    Anyone use one of the Nel Snake or Cors Shrew 3.5"x 6.5" coils on your AT Gold and if so what do you think of it? Is it worth the money? Does it do anything the stock 5"x8" coil don't? Thanks for any input as i am thinking about getting one for the AT Gold i just bought.
  14. Thanks appreciate the input. For now i picked up a good deal on an AT Gold.
  15. It’s in excellent condition.  I only used it three times that I can think of.

      Thanks Wes. I am debating about what i want and am leaning towards a PI machine for nugget hunting. Good luck with the sale. That isn't a bad price.

      Your welcome and good luck on your search.  This little detector is on par with the Gold Bug Pro but is completely water proof which was why I got it.  I later came on to a little cash and was able to get the SDC 2300 for my creek and river detecting.  I do miss the discrimination this machine provides as the creeks and Rivers is where the junk collects.  It’s a trade off.  Every detector is like a different tool in the tool box.  Some are real good at one thing and others are good at a little bit of everything.

      I would love to get an SDC or Garrett ATX but can't even afford one at this time.  Maybe someday. Take care.
