    I would guess it says 1916.

  4. Not much detectable gold around Casa Grande OFS. In Tucson the Desert Gold Diggers have several good claims to the south. You might consider calling them to see if anyone is planning a trip around that time. Typically their outings are earlier in the month. Cost to join is around $50 first year. If you are down that way much it might be worth joining just for the claims access. Barry

    Day 1 2cent Kinda Day..

    I would love to find a two or three cents piece!
  6. I have a Tesoro, love the machine but it isn't waterproof. I will look at the costs to build one and the time, might not be worth the aggravation.

    Problem With Equinox 600

    What about the pinpointer. Does anyone have a problem with the pinpointer not working right? I mean I Know how to pinpoint. I turn 90 degrees and go over the item. I believe it's something to do with my machine... Because sometimes it will say it's under the coil. 11" and it's not. It's way off... Like I'm getting kinda frustrated I even bought a EQX 600 and that's sad because i see other people who have problems and some who dont

    Help I.d

    When the Welsh miners played out the coal fields here they moved to Washington to mine coal over there and as you say named it after the place they had came from last. That makes us brethren lol What's the writing say on the object? Strick

    Free Target ID Cards

    You don't need to email or anything, just download the pdf and print. The whole "I will mail you something" thing was a year ago. I have edited Scott's original post to reflect this.

    Free Target ID Cards

    I have sent multiple messages and never heard from or received a copy. Glad someone is getting a response.
  12. Good for him, congratulations! Anyone know who won the December Find of the Month? Link? Edit. Found the link but they skipped December? Interesting the Find of the Month is administered out of the Dubai office?

    Vegas Here I Come !!

    Tom I have to say I'm pretty impressed with the 15" coil and I haven't in the past been that found of big coils as most of these sites are so trashy that they don't perform well, but this one is doing a great job, I think you'll like it (and it's pretty light). I'm sure it'll also be a great beach coil and deep silver turf coil as well.
  14. Thanks for watching. To be honest the 15" coil doesn't feel like a 15" coil when you're swinging it. I like that it's a 12"x15" and not a big round 15", I suspect that is why it's doing so well picking silver out of sea of nail environments. Good ground coverage and depth, and did I mention the silver bangs in pretty well with the 15" coil 😁 GL&HH, Cal
  15. As previously reported in the post: D’artagnon Jackson, Long Time Customer Of Doc, Scores First Beautiful Gold… Dar found a 1852 D gold U.S. dollar. I submitted the find to Minelab for their Finds of The Month January contest. Today Dartagnon received this email from Minelab. Congratulations D'artagnon! Doc
  16. Cool GS, count me in when it comes out.

    GPZ 7000 Now Coming With Free GPZ 19 Coil

    I wonder if all US dealers are offing this. So far I have only seen three offering this.

    GPZ 7000 Now Coming With Free GPZ 19 Coil

    As has been noted elsewhere one might expect some new GPZ 19 coils to be getting sold as used soon as people get this deal and then some of them may sell the big coil to help lower their "all in" price.

    Usefulness Of Fe304 Meters?

    A very simplistic way to look at it. For a couple decades people like me have been pounding the table for a detector "that detects as deep as a PI but discriminates like a good VLF". Note the wish is not for more depth - my holes are deep enough. And we are still wishing for that. I would settle for just accurate ferrous discrimination at this point, and nobody can even give me that simple request in the best VLF machines made so far.

    Strange Object

    I've got two updates: It is non-ferrous and the chief machinist where I work is going to check the metal with a hardness analyzer, what ever that is. Once I have a hardness value I'll be able to compare that to known metal hardness values. Just another bit of information. He has a complete machine shop at his home where he makes knives from steel. I'll update tomorrow.

    GPZ 7000 Now Coming With Free GPZ 19 Coil

    That’s a huge deal. Well done to the US dealers. Nothing on the Miners Den website here in Oz. A basic training day is about all you’ll get free.

    Headed For The Land Down Under

    The GPX battery is technically contained with in the device. I think they mean loose cells or packs. The GPX battery is fine to be shipped by air freight so should be ok to travel with.

    Usefulness Of Fe304 Meters?

    Unless you get Dave or Carl to say more everything known about CZX is here. I do enjoy everyone's enthusiasm in keeping the dream alive, but I just know too much I guess about the constraints inherent in the existing technology when it comes to max depth. What you guys really want is more targets revealed within the depth that has already been achieved, but I personally have no expectation of any more depth than can be attained with a GPX 5000. The GPZ 7000 did not increase max depth, it increased depth subjectively by revealing targets the GPX 5000 missed. Welcome to metal detecting philosophy 101. http://www.fisherlab.com/hobby/davejohnson/davejohnsonjohngardinerinterview.htm “Getting extra depth out of a VLF, multifrequency, or PI machine is very difficult, because these machines follow an inverse 6th power law relationship between signal voltage and depth. If everything else is maintained equal, doubling the depth requires 64 times as much signal. If this is done by increasing transmitter power, doubling depth requires 4,096 times as much battery drain. That’s the basic reason why depth increases come so slowly in this industry.” I expect more advances in signal analysis to continue to reveal targets missed up until now and that's about it. All the scuttlebutt I hear is about making machines that can equal the depth achieved by Minelab's best, not bettering it by some huge degree.

    Nice!
  25. Adrian Harris Published on Feb 17, 2019 - On our 4th dig at K C Rallys up comes a William 3rd silver hoard 51 in total well done Garry next step reporting the find to the Worcester FLO.
