  1. Not Too Bad A Weekend

    Great job! I've been wondering when you were going to get that GPZ coil over some bigger gold! Chris
  2. I went out to Gold Basin last Sunday for a few hours. Covered lots of ground and was able to dig up 3 nuggets and a meteorite. Gold Basin is finally showing me some love. One was a nice 1.4 gram heart shape, and the other was a 2.5 gram specie. 4.2 g total. Chris
  3. Yeah, I always wonder about the planted gold. Regardless I have wondered how good I could do up there with the GPZ lol. Chris

    I'm watching, I like seeing people take chances, I like pondering the possibilities. I like seeing people succeed. I try not to get caught up in the sensationalization, be cause I figure that is created by the producers. "Gold Rush" is actually what got me into prospecting. Think what you want about the Hoffmans, but they took a shot and seem to be doing ok for themselves. Big risk knowing so little about mining and going for it. They all have messed up and overcome big mistakes, not an easy thing to do. I like seeing Parker kick their butt and Mature a little bit. I like seeing the big piles of gold lol. There are a few really good people on the show, as well as some characters. Such is life. Chris

    Thanks Chuck, Dave, and Mitchell. Mitchell, I'm actually not used to digging much trash lol. Yeah Steve I'm with you, I like seeing nuggets posted, it fires me up to go looking. Hope you get out soon. Let me know if you ever get down to Vegas. Chris

    Hi all, I want out yesterday to an area that has some gold , but also lots of trash....i dug a lot of trash. Deep nails were my nemesis with the GPZ, but I did manage to dog up these 5 nuggets. Largest was 2.7 grams. Thanks, Chris.

    Great adventure. You definitely need to thank your wife for prompting you to bring the detectors. Some good size pieces! Congratulations Chris
