Nice find One Guy, haven't seen you over in our area this summer.

Thanx Steve and everyone else for the comments!!!!

Steve....I've been over "in your area" most all season.....maybe 35-40 times and have managed only 14 bits with detector and spent 6-7 days crack scratchin on the creek.  Have access to 2 of Daves' claims and one other private claim with 3 nuggs off one of Dave's.  Only got maybe 4 grams total.  Only been to Helena twice this season.  got a couple nuggs off one of the club claims.....

You doing any good this season????

Say what???  You know where I've spent most my time this year and I've only been to Helena twice this season and once last year when you showed me that drainage (I thank you for that).  Why do you make it look like I'm always riding your coat-tails when last weekend I showed up 5 hrs before you, meet a local prospector who shows me a nugget he just found and tells me directions to the spot. I tell him I got a bud coming a couple hrs behind me....he says that's fine but don't mention the spot to anyone else. It takes me 1.5 hrs. to find the spot, I find the above gold and show you.  Next day "I" load you up on my quad and take "YOU" to the spot and you say you'd never been there before!  I also got no credit for scoring US over 1000 acres of private that we can hunt anytime in same area?  Remember you wanted to go home because snow kept us out of X gulch this spring....I said "I didn't drive 200+ mi to turn around and go home".  I wanted to check out an area I seen on Google...you said there's a locked gate, I convinced you to follow, no gate what so ever, we continue, I see a farm house and stop, tell you I hate to do it but I'm gonna door knock and ask questions...we end up with 1030 acres we can hunt.

It goes both ways buddy....You scratch mine and vice -versa!  I wanted to set the record straight from my perspective...think about it.

Good luck in your endeavers

Oneuy, you clearly have misread what I was getting at. All I was was implying was I was trying to get you out of the one district and get you to explore other good districts. Thats all. Maybe with your new camper you will do more  exploring and research.

      Hi guys. Been really sick, still am kind of, recovered about 50%. But came back and saw some notifications. Two can't find. But, I reckon before I got sick I shot off at a member here and may have got it wrong. So, you know who you are and no hard feelings mate, my bad this time. To the Boss, Steve, same, my bad. Still not right though, real bad virus. Haven't felt like this in over 20 yrs. Got fed up of laying around coughing, sweating, nausea so got out. Felt great, kind of, short sessions though and glad to get home. But small wins regardless. 1st pic at the head of a deep lead in the very very last throw outs going up a mountainside. 2nd total virgin ground, very scattered, no rhyme or reason, been there before and it's like "toss a coin" direction you go.

      Found this little guy on my second hunt with the nox.  Just barely registers at .01g on the scale.  It rang clear at 2 inches deep.  I'm hunting in trashy hydraulic pits that have been hit hard with PI's and  VLF's but I think I'm the first equinox user.  I never thought I could remain sane hunting these areas but this machine changes everything.  Only iron I dug was the old burro shoe.......pretty cool!!
      Im in gold 2, sensitivity 18-20 the rest all stock settings.
      Thanks

      Dealing with some family issues me, my wife and a group of friends finally made a trip to the central Colorado mountain’s to search for gold specimens on tailing piles that have been productive in the past. Part of the group this was their first time using a detector searching for gold specimens. After a brief overview of the history and different areas to search, we spent some time setting up the different types of detectors to achieve the best results. We then took off in different directions with some partnering up with others for additional instruction. It didn’t take long for the 10,000+ foot altitude to begin taking its toll and the steep terrain limiting the area they wish to search as everyone was cautious for their well-being while detecting. The group detected for three days and four specimens were found.

      Here are a few pics showing the wire and leaf gold specimens as found and then cleaned:

      With yesterday being fathers day I went down to my claim with my dad. Targeted the same spot as last time where I got 3.2g in an hour. This time we spent almost 4hrs and did a huge amount of digging but only managed to find 1.2g. Including a little specimen, which is a bit more rare for that area.Such is life, golden day out with dad though.
