Have You Ever Pissed Off Your Prospecting Partner?

Recommended Posts


Holly smackers that’s some specimens.  Is that Idaho Gold?  What left those tailing piles?

Nice pieces.....

Nothing wrong with the machine you were using to find those.... why change?

Gerry is in the habit of collecting metal detectors....LOTS of metal detectors. He has some good deals if you are ever looking. Nice story Gerry!

On more than one occasion I too have pissed off a mining partner. I just like when they come back and start getting in personal lives between you and your Spouse. It happened to me three times with the same person. Then it was over for good with that guy.

 I do have friends that I love to take with me detecting however I don't find anything when they go. Though I do find that they soon lose interest after digging a thousand boot tacks and square nails. 

I only go alone or with my wife now. I trust no one any longer. If it wasn't for her I wouldn't have half of what I have. She talked me into selling a dredge and buying my first minelab then a year later I got my ZED. I love them both more than they will ever know.

Yes those golden potatoes are from Iowa.

The pick is a custom job from an old leaf spring.  Been using it for 20+ years.

One of these days I just might quit using all the different detectors and stick to 1, NOT!!
