  1. Great thread with a lot of helpful information Steve. Thank you, Mike
  2. GB, looking at the photos of the river, I believe he means 850 cubic feet per second. Mike
  3. Nice gold Sjmpainter. That looks like a pretty swift current to be doing any kind of dredging in. What's your weight belt setup? mike
  4. Hello From Germany - Silvanus

    Good to have you join the forum Silvanus. I'm on the west coast and don't have any experience with civil war relic hunting. I'm sure you'll hear from knowledgeable folks on the forum about your interests. We always like to see photos of fellow hunters finds. Take care Silvanus, Mike
  5. Ya, Kiwijw, I'm also wondering if you have processed any of the material on the bedrock. I see a stream close by in one of the photos. Mike
  6. Great job on the LeTrap Harry. I have the full length one. I like the aluminum frame you're using. I;m sure it stiffens it up quite a bit. Not to long ago I ordered and received a Gold Hog Stream Sluice. I really like this sluice. I run it in quite fast water and basically don't classify at all. Just toss aside larger rocks (+3") as I fill my buckets. It catches small gold really well while kicking out most of the black sand. Post some results Harry. Hope all is well for you with the fires. We are getting a lot of smoke and ash from the Chetco Bar fire just over the border, east of Brookings, Oregon. Mike
  7. The Loss Of My Forums

    Wow Jim, I'm sure sorry about your and our loss of these forums. I've been a user/contributor for many years. I hope all turns out well. Thanks for all your efforts Jim, Mike
  8. I came across a brand new (never used) Gold Bug 2 at a garage sale last weekend. I don't know the young man personally, but do know his father. Good honest man. I have the guys name number if anyone is interested. He paid $750.00 and is asking $500.00 for it. Located here is Crescent City, Ca. Mike
  9. Really cool Phoenix. Thanks for posting. Mike
  10. Know Thyne Enemy

    A really good job of straightening out this problem Klunker. Clay (Barry) thank you again for your input of true information. Mike
  11. Pocket Gold!!

    Wow, great hunting Harry. There's a lot of rough country in your neck of the woods. I'm sure you earned those beauties. Mike
  12. Garrett Z-Lynk

    Thanks guys,. You're right Steve, I very well could need the headphones without the Z-Lynk. That is a good idea John, Velcro strap it and yes GB, I have stretched out the cord a lot. I think I'll try these suggested fixes before I go the surgery and patch up route. Mike
  13. Garrett Z-Lynk

    I agree Steve. A question for you. My only problem with this setup so far is having to deal with the long headphone wire which is not needed any more. Would it be a reasonable task to simply cut out all the excess headphone cord and splice the remaining ends? Thanks Steve, Mike
  14. Garrett Z-Lynk

    I finally tried out the Z-Lynk, wireless detector to headphones system I bought from Chris over at Arizona Outback. I was working very steep ground in Northern California and am truly happy about the purchase. I'm a better prospector using this system. Being able to set the detector aside and concentrate on digging the target is much more appealing, even marginal targets. I was using the Z-Lynk with Calrad headphones and a Gold Bug 2. I didn't find anything but large and small square nails and spikes, but was in the right area. Try it, you'll like it, Mike
  15. Finding Pocket Gold

    Great thread. Yesterday and today I and about 40 other people, of all flavors, attended a metal detecting outing for hillside pocket/placer gold on a side hill side above the Klamath River just downstream of Happy Camp, Ca. The outing was a combined effort of Whites Electronics (metal detectors), Armadillo Mining Supply, Tom and Josh Bohmker, and The New49ers, on whose claim we were detecting. Although rainy, it was good fun and great lessons in metal detecting for gold. All who put this outing on are very good at what they do. As the topic of this thread is pocket gold hunting, I'd like to give a big shout out to Tom Bohmker and his son Josh as truly knowledgeable people on pocket gold and finding it. It was a pleasure to meet and learn from them. Tom does have quite a few good publications on the subject. All I found was a lot of old square nails. Mike
