Bill & Linda's Prospecting Page

Recommended Posts

I have not even scratched the surface of this website link. All kinds of diverse articles and photos from all over the country. There are many photos of legends in the prospecting world. I tripped over this site years ago, forgot about it, and then found it again yesterday while doing research. Check it out at http://www.billandlindaprospecting.com/

Great Link Steve, lots of great information in just one place.  I sure do enjoy seeing photos of people mining and different parts of our beautiful country. It makes me want to leave my office and go find some gold!

Brian.

Bill and Linda's is loaded with lots of great stuff. We met him and his dog Coco several years ago out in Rye patch.  Before I found this forum, his was my go to prospecting site. I still look at it daily.

I and my wife met Bill at Gold Basin this last October and was helpful with tips on detecting and places or areas to hunt. Bill is one of the nicest and most friendliest people you could ever meet. I believe he stays at the local RV park in Meadview, AZ. for a few months every year.

      I have four books that I’m going to give away with all from 1972.
      All you have to do is just let me know that you want your name in the pot. I’ll put a number by your name and  then put the number only in the pot and draw a winner out.
      This comtest will end 9 June at 6 PM CST. I will ship free to your address.

      So I did a search and didn't find what I was after. What I would like to figure out is how to find old places to coin shoot. I guess parks would be a easy point to start.
      1. How to find the age of a place.
      2. How to find old places that might be abandoned or reused.
      3. General techniques of selecting a place to look for old coins.
       
      Example I live in Reno with Steve ( probably why I don't find good nuggets or coins). Steve got some great coins as of late and I can't find older than 70 decade. Now I could go to tahoe but that is a drive and I would like a few local spots to take my kids that like treasure hunting, that is what they call it. So I tried figuring it out, no dice. I don' mind doing the work, just need the formula.
      I was hoping that the veteran shooters had a method to their research and selection process.
      Thanks for the help.

      I’d said something about going to a Treasure Show this weekend and I’m back with a new book on Equinox Series Detector.
      I haven’t had a lot of time to read over it but did take time to scan it. With that said you want to know what I think of the book.        All I will say is spend the money to get a pirinted copy of the instruction manual for the Equinox. Then spend the time reading it and when you’re not sure about something read it over again.

      We are going to be moving to Tinker AFB, OK in June, but in the meantime, while still based on Eglin AFB, FL, I have been researching old, now demolished family housing areas to hunt before we leave.
      I have discovered a major housing area, where all the homes were built between 1955 and 1962. Still standing in 1969, but now demolished and open fields. Very easy to research using NETRonline Historic Aerials against current Google Satellite maps.
      The kicker of this area is that it is on-base, and due to very restricted access, these fields are very likey virgin for hunting. I expect a lot of silver, wheaties and more in the front areas of these homes, as well as the always-open fields behind the housing circles, where kids would play, and parties held. Only hunting them will prove out my theory, but I have four remaining weeks at Eglin to find what I can!
      Here are the Aerial vs. current satellite pics.  After we leave, I hope someone into MD'ing will be assigned to Eglin and find this post. (Of course, I hope I've already recovered ALL the silver!! LOL)

      I was going through my computer looking at different stuff that I had forgotten I had and I came across this shortcut to the archives of Gold Net Australia.   Gold Net Australia Online went from 1999 to 2002 and remarkably, it`s still there.  Probably not of great interest to people in the States, but if you enjoy reading about coil developement from 20 yrs ago, or accommodation, or a review of the GP Extreme,  or divining rods, or storys of big finds or just pictures of beaut nuggets, there might be something here of interest.
