sorry to derail the main point, Steve;

i was just commenting on an issue that affects a large percentage of people and seems to be ignored by manufacturers of all products.

The LEDs are certainly not anything I would depend on. Like you audio is my first filter when coin hunting; but nugget hunting I dig it all.

It says the machine makes a Low Tone for Positive Hotrocks and Iron? What about Cold Hotrocks? My Lobo makes a Boing Boing noise over them. Will this Nokta make the Boing noise too?

I am guessing that the Nokta AU Gold Finder was designed primarily for the African market but I could be wrong about that. The only retail outlet that I know of in the United States is Kellyco. Since it is a new detector and with only one retailer, most people will never have heard of or seen this detector. I have one but it sees little use as I usually toss my Gold Racer in the truck instead. I guess I may have to get more hours in with the Gold Finder and will make a point of doing that over the next month.

Now I know why so many people run red lights. Then the next time they'll sit through the green one.

Color blindness could sure be one of the reasons but I think most of it has to do more so being distracted.  We sit and sit at the light and as soon as our eyes move away from it that's the exact time when it changes.

      Last weekend I got to tag along with Josh and Tom Bohmker, and a few other knowledgable miners. The destination was the Briggs Pocket in Southern Oregon. This was not an easy hike for some of the crew, but we all made it out and back. We did have one guy fall down a steep slope, but Josh was able to catch him before he tumbled down to the bottom.
      The video tells some of the history of this famous pocket mine as well as how Josh and his family have used modern P.I. detectors to recover the gold left on the hillside by previous generations of miners. Of all types of metal detecting for gold, I would count pocket hunting as the most difficult - due to the terrain, research, and extensive geology knowledge required. It's something not many people have the patience for (me included), so I have to say I admire the gumption of the Bohmker family - they discovered the Briggs Pocket just two weeks before another party and have pulled a lot of gold out of their claim.
      The gold from the Briggs Pocket tends to be spongey and interwound with the host rock (quartz). I will post some journal excerpts at the bottom of this post in case you'd like to read some historical accounts as well. But here's the video:
      Every time I see Josh and Tom I learn so much about the geology of gold. Anyone who has an interest in pocket hunting might want to look them up. They do go on regular expeditions with folks, which I believe they run through their website.
      I thought you guys might like a virtual tour of the Briggs Pocket - since this forum is where I got started on my journey of searching for gold.
       
      HISTORICAL ACCOUNTS
      Briggs History:  (As recorded by the Mining Review, Salt Lake City, Utah bi monthly publication)
        June 30, 1904   Discovery of a mammoth pocket near the head waters of sucker creek, forty miles south of Grants Pass. The discovery was made by the two sons of David Briggs, while out hunting, and was purely accidental as they stumbled across it while trailing a deer. They have already brought in $6,000 from the pocket, and believe they will bring as much more before the glory hill is emptied. Much of the gold was in great slabs as big as a man's hand, and all of it came from a shallow cut, but three feet wide, three feet deep, and but six feet in length.    July 15th, 1904   The Rush is still on to the new Eldorado up in the siskiyous, beyond Holland, and on the Oregon California line. I took the fever and joined the caravan, mainly for the purpose of satisfying a curiosity, but not an idle one, for it is to severe a strain on a scribblers physical make up to climb twenty miles almost straight up just to see what is going on over the divide. ......................... We found about 100 men scattered about the head of Thompson and Indian creeks, a number of whom had taken up claims. A townsite has been surveyed, and the town will be know as "Goldenview City"  The strike made by Briggs has already taken out $25,000 in gold. Contented in the truth that want will never more drive them out of unbefitting toil, they are satisfied with the life of the mountains. Here is the freedom no other land can give, the genuine freedom of the western outer world. It was these mountains that gave up bountifully from their long hidden treasures. And they who were so fortunately endowed with not forget the giver. _ Dennis H Stovall     Records indicate that this was worked for two seasons, and there was a group that braved the winter and worked through. In the end, the strike led to a rush up there of over 2000 men, almost everything was claimed up, and many smaller strikes were made within the vicinity. I don't think the town of Goldenview ever came to pass. They (Briggs) sold the claim and staked a new claim not far away. A company from Chicago invested substantial money into developing the mine, but turned up nothing, or at least not enough to be profitable. By June of 2005, there was no more reports on the Briggs strike.
