yep, I well remember 2 hours digging through calcrete with two of us taking turns on the chisel and lump hammer.

Almost went through a box of bandaids with claret leaking from every finger.

The good thing with a signal in calcrete is you know it's gold. The lottery is how big

That's when I go back and get one if my Milwaukee battery powered rota hammers! I guess I got it even easier, now only if I had the time to swing.

 This detecting business is a lot of work. I can remember one time last year that the ground was so hard that I had to put a smaller bucket on the excavator.

Not necessary. Just convince him the target is a nugget (of any size) and an excavator would just get in the way.

      Greetings fellow prospectors! For a more than a year I have thought about doing up some Youtube videos on prospecting and I have finally gotten off my backside and done it! This is the first video of a 3 part set where I will be taking a look at Minelab's new Gold Monster 1000 nugget oriented metal detector. This part one video is an introductory discussion about its various features and settings. In the next couple weeks I will put up part 2 which will be on testing the GM1000 out in the field and then part 3 will cover some practical suggestions for prospectors on getting the most out of your Gold Monster 1000 and a discussion of some of the best kinds of places to use the GM1000. I will publish those other parts soon, but for now, here is the part 1 video. The quality here may not be perfect, but there is a lot of good information and content in this video. Additionally, now that I have the ball rolling you can expect other videos on different prospecting topics coming later once I have completed these 3. - Chris

      A nice overview of why some people like to go metal detecting. This is a bit of an experiment as an embedded Facebook video so let me know if it does not work for you.

      Published on Dec 19, 2016 - In this episode of Gold Trails, host Kevin Hoagland starts his adventure with a private tour of the White's Metal Detector factory in Sweethome Oregon. He then makes his way to a nearby GPAA Mining Claim in search of gold nuggets. Later in the show he tests his luck on the Oregon Coast with a prototype White's detector searching for treasure with the Metal Man!
