  1. Interesting. Looks like one can go too slow and miss a target. When one hears a faint target at normal speed and goes over it carefully and too slow you may walk away. Food for thought.
  2. Another nice feature of these coils is the center mount. When I had my ATX it was a PITA to keep pushing the front of the coil with my foot to level it. Nice improvement all around.
  3. I found it interesting watching the video from the perspective of a nugget hunter that one man's treasure is another man's trash. No offense to relic hunters intended.
  4. Lucky, no problem, you are packing a large medicine cabinet. ?
  5. Fred, this is what I suggest. Save all your files (documents, downloads, photos, etc) to a portable storage device. Buy a new PC based (Win 10) computer. It will be simpler for you to adapt to than an Apple. You can get a good computer for your needs for under $500. Let the computer geeks at Best Buy and Staples suggest models based on what you tell them you need. You basically just start over developing files and bookmarks as your needs demand. Throw the Studio 17 in an appropriate recycle bin. This is a pain in the ass, but ultimately better than trying to save your old computer. I have had good luck with HP computers.
  6. WTG Peg!! Anyone who can go to the Rye Patch and find that much gold has my respect. Great detecting.
  7. Ditto what Bob said.
  8. Dave, I watched 6 episodes on the link you provided. I found it entertaining. Lots of detecting, lots of nuggets. No big drama, no psycho's. Thanks for the link.
  9. Jen That nugget is a beauty! Jen / Strick This link gives you the historic composition of Canadian coins. You can see most of the coins since 2000 are plated steel. https://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.bcscta.ca/resources/hebden/chem/Coin%20Compositions.pdf&ved=0ahUKEwj85t_JuYjPAhUNzWMKHbKLB8MQFggmMAA&usg=AFQjCNEcGV3D2wgEF-j0ARHm68WBFAdWAw&sig2=YppwG8ZAGcuuVJdk3G6n3A
  10. Condor, Last October I put in 40 hrs of detector time on that area you mention above. Found one very small nugget. I am impressed with your results, and beyond impressed with Lucky's. I know it is more than luck.
  11. Tom, Great story, happy ending. Check this little fellow out for a companion on your adventures: https://www.amazon.com/Delorme-AG-009871-201-DeLorme-inReach-SE/dp/B00BX7TJ2O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1471363146&sr=8-1&keywords=In+reach Be careful out there.
  12. You guys are the smart ones. I am shame faced this morning and just an ass. Yeah, I should have known better regarding Troy oz. Thanks for the boot in the butt and schooling.
