  1. Autumn & Winter brings out the treasure shows in US (cable) TV. It's fun for me to try and figure out what detectors are being used. Here are a couple recent views. Disclaimer: as always, keep in mind that what you see isn't always the true story. TV producers like to exercise "poetic license" at the expense of veracity, even (especially?) when they label their shows "reality TV". Finding Escobar's Millions -- a brand new show airing right after the well known Gold Rush, Friday nights on Discovery Channel. Basically this is the travails of two ex-CIA agents combing Columbia looking for deceased drug lord Pablo Escobar's hidden spoils. On episode 1 (last week) they had some interesting things to say about a couple detectors they were using. The claim was that the 'hobby detector' (their words) would detect down to 10 inches (25 cm) whereas their professional detector would pick up at 10 ft (3 m). Well, the 'hobby detector' appeared to be a Fisher CZ3d. I would have thought the 'professional detector' would be a two box TR. I didn't recognize the device but it has the standard MD structure (coil on the end of the shaft). What caught my curiosity and skepticism was that the coil assembly was an OO (similar to DD) with each component coil being only about 6 inches in diameter! They had a designation/name for it but I don't remember what it was. It was something like XY-89 where 'XY' were two letter (not literally XY) and '89' was a two digit number (not 89). I think the the number was 61 or 62, but not at all sure about that. Does this description & name ring a bell with anyone? (Or if someone watched the show maybe you can fill in more details.) Ironically they spent most of their time using the hobby detector.... Curse of Oak Island -- season five began last evening on History Channel. Most of you are likely familiar with this one. On the 2 hour premier they had Gary Drayton back using his (sponsored?) CTX 3030 and a Minelab pinpointer (yellow and black -- I'm not tuned in on all their models). More interesting was a dive to the bottom of one of their deep holes where the diver was using what appeared to be a Garrett Carrot at a water depth of over 30 m (~100 ft). It definitely was orange, the right size, and clearly said 'Garrett' in black letters, just like on my Carrot. I think that is 10 times deeper than it's specked! Am I wrong on that? I suppose it could possibly be a special one-off unit made for them by Garrett. It was working at that depth during the dive. That would be crazy deep (very high pressure), even accounting for engineering safety margin, for such a device if it really is only recommended for 10 ft.
  2. While season 1 is on Netflix here in America, they've yet to upload season 2..... much more enjoyable show (much more detector work) than the drama they show on our American versions. The first episode of season 2 can be found here:
  3. https://press.discovery.com/us/dsc/programs/devils-canyon/ Tom B., is this the show you auditioned for last year?
  4. Some of you on this forum may never have seen any or all of the episodes of The Meteorite Men. I encourage you to go online and find the episodes and watch as many of them as you can find. This episode is about finding huge meteorites in Kansas. I remember watching it on TV the first time and a couple of times in repeat while they were still showing them a few years back. I remembered this episode because of a sled the boys built and drug across the ground to find some very valuable finds. I did not know them when they were putting together these shows but I have since met them in Tucson and been with many meteorite hunters (some of you are here)! I like this one because it shows some information about ALL meteorite strewn fields and some of the technology they used and still use to find meteorites. I'm sure they have some of the most recent Minelabs like I do which finds meteorites with ease if they are there. Mitchel
  5. Has anyone been watching the show Cooper's Treasure? http://www.discovery.com/tv-shows/coopers-treasure/about-coopers-treasure/ What do you think about its technology?
  6. http://areena.yle.fi/1-3812175 enjoys greate finds
  7. It was just a ad. about the Gold Rush TV show coming again. It will be back Oct. 14 on the Discovery channel at 9 PM EST and I think 8 PM CST. Chuck
  8. For what it's worth the new season of Bering Sea Gold Starts Friday August 26th on the Discovery Channel. I like the show but often the first in a continuing series is mostly a rehash of last years events where they milk the old film. Guess we will see. http://www.discovery.com/tv-shows/bering-sea-gold/
  9. I just received the following email..... Hello Steve, My name is Kate and I am a casting associate with Magilla Entertainment, a television production company based in NYC that specializes in non-scripted programming. I am reaching out because we are currently casting a new series for a major cable network about gold mining and prospecting. This series will feature men and women who head out into the wilderness to look for gold in some of the few locations that have been untouched by mining, and will follow them through their individual prospecting journey and process. Through my research on gold prospecting I came across the Detector Prospector website, and I was hoping you would be willing to share our flyer with your followers, friends, or with anyone you may personally know who might be interested in this opportunity! I have included the casting call below this message as well as our flyer, which you can feel free to share and post! If you have any questions about the project or our company, I would be happy to answer them, and I can be reached at 646-653-7292. Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing back from you regarding my inquiry. Best, Kate NOW CASTING GOLD MINERS AND GOLD PROSPECTORS Magilla Entertainment and a major cable network are now casting a new series about people searching for gold. We are looking for men and women of all ages with gold fever who have the knowledge and survival skills to go out alone, prospecting in the few locations left that have been untouched by big mining. Do you have a family history of prospecting and mining going back generations? Or have you only recently become interested in striking it rich? Have your friends been prospecting for years and you want in on the action? Perhaps you are the only one in your family to search for a golden payday and no one else in your life seems to understand. If you want to be considered or are interested in learning more, email us ASAP at castingdirector@magilla.tv along with your name, age, location, occupation, recent photo, phone number and any experience you have with prospecting and mining.

Great job Chris and Steve, you continue to make me proud to say I know you both..... Well done.... Made in America still rules :) PS: I again apologize if it's already been posted. Jennifer

  12. Aussie Gold Rush

    This TV show sounds interesting. Wonder if they got an Aussie Todd Hoffman for us all to take the piss out of? https://www.screenaustralia.gov.au/find-a-film/detail.aspx?tid=34231& "They’re the hard-core gold prospectors of Outback Australia and they’re on a mission to strike it rich! Whether it’s back-breaking work, extreme weather, mechanical breakdowns or cutthroat competition, prospecting is not for the faint-hearted. But our cast of gold hunters is tough, resourceful and ready for the challenge. Among them is husband and wife team Chris and Greg, the ‘Gold Gypsies’. 2 years ago they walked away from their Brisbane home and construction careers to chase their dream of striking it big, 4000km away. Having spent their life savings to set up their mining operation, the self-taught prospectors’ future rests on gold, for better or for worse… Meanwhile, best mates Vern and Leon, aka the Dirt Dogs, are running a gold operation in which they’ve sunk a million bucks into building what they claim is the ‘biggest dry blower in the universe’ affectionately known as ‘Goldzilla’. Having ploughed a fortune into their season plan, the Dogs are under massive pressure to unearth another, just to break even… Meanwhile, remote prospectors Henri and Kellie are going it alone. Armed with their high tech detectors, the best friends seek their fortune out in the farthest depths of the wild outback – where rival prospectors fear to tread. Follow their journeys and those of people they mingle with in the outback towns of the region, as we capture the daily drama, challenges and the sheer exhilaration of the hunt for AUSSIE GOLD! "
  13. This is for real so do not be afraid of tossing your hat in the ring. Raw TV has been involved in lots of stuff, including the original Gold Rush series. Pass it along to anyone who may be interested. Alan, you listening?
  14. Dredging under the ice is just not for everyone. I see they are running past shows now until tonight. Chuck Anders .
