Gold Detecting A Hundred Years From Now

Recommended Posts

Some may say that any detectable gold will be out of range of any detector by then. Well you have to remember every time it’s rain we have what we call soil erosion. It may not get to the point being like the Grand Canyon but where Rich Hill won’t be a hill anymore.

The 7000 in another century to us won’t be no more than a BFO does now. Like now we see new technology in a detector coming out that didn’t exist just a year ago.

I know I won’t see it and I’m sorry to say all reading this now won’t see it either.

The great thing is we have the 7000 now and all the new coin machines to hunt with. So us don’t worry about the rug rats that will come after us. Get out there and hunt and may those that come after us a hundred years from now earn what they find.

We talk about the "old-timers" but in 100 years we will be the old-timers. There will be footnotes about the "Electronic Gold Rush" of the late 20th and early 21st century - and we will be the ones that had a part of all that. Making history with every nugget dug!

(speaking from 100 years in the future)  Those old timers sure had it rough.. actually had to dig in the dirt to see what their target was and how big it was!  Couldn't imagin actually getting my hands dirty.  (ok.. now I sound like a snowflake.. lol!)

I want to look the part so that’s why I’m growing a long beard and hair. So a hundred years from now the’ll say my great great great Grandpa was a prospector.

only a face a mother could love.

GOSH :blink:....one hundred years from now. I really don't think I would want to be on the planet then. It sure won't be like we have had & experienced in our life times. Even the changes we are witnessing now & through our times.  I feel sorry for my childrens children, & there kids after them. But then again....what they are born into is all they will know. Except from what great grandad can tell them & show them photos & video....if they are still relevant... As to gold & ones ability to get out there in one hundred years from now. What will technology be.....will there be any gold left....will one be able to or allowed to look for it....will there still be a planet......?????  I shudder to think... :unsure: Live your life to the fullest. Get out there & enjoy what is there NOW, because one day...it wont be.

Good luck out there

Don't worry, they'll be living and detecting at the "lunar gold rush".

Next week I'm teaching fifth grade kids to pan for gold (gotta get my dredge cons processed some how;-).

I'll bet in a hundred years their kids will still be using a pan to find gold.

      The ads came from mags dating back to 66. I can say I remember them all. Just maybe you remember some if not all.

      This is what White’s had going for it in 1971 with their line of detectors. I had the 66 TR it being the one to your left. When I got it I just knew I’d never want another. ha

      So most of us have read about how during the war gold mining was not allowed since we needed to concentrate all our mining resources on useful industrial materials that could applied towards the war effort (iron, vanadium, uranium, tungsten, etc).
       
      But after visiting a number of old abandoned mines that ran during the war years I'm left wondering if some of these mines were actually still going after gold and reporting some minor tertiary commodity as their official "product" instead like iron.
       
      Has anyone ever run into the same feeling at certain mines? Is there there any documentation showing that this happened? I'm guessing no since it would have been illegal at the time, but I'm just curious. Were any mines ever caught mining gold when they should have been mining something else? Are there records from whatever dept monitored mines back then to make sure the miners were not going after gold?
