Nothing, Arizona

Recommended Posts

Tried a new area for metal detecting last week, Nothing AZ, it lived up to its name. Spent 5 days and came up with Nothing. Lots of  quarts, black sand looks good but no gold.

Well, that’s a bummer! You’re right, maybe that’s why it was named “Nothing” lol.

Being on the other side of the planet, I have never heard of Nothing AZ so I googled it.   Apparently this was on a town sign in Nothing.   It gave me a good laugh. 🙂
"Town of Nothing Arizona. Founded 1977. Elevation 3269ft.
The staunch citizens of Nothing are full of Hope, Faith, and Believe in the work ethic. Thru-the-years-these dedicated people had faith in Nothing, hoped for Nothing, worked at Nothing, for Nothing."

Ever heard of the song lyrics, "Nothing from nothing leaves nothing"? Could have been the tune you were humming as you left . . .

All the best,

Lanny

all the places I detected for nuggets should be calles "NOTHING" not just in AZ :laugh: but I'm not giving up.....comes next March I will be going back to AZ together with my friend Joe from CA. Hoping to find the spot called "EVERYTHING" (everything we dig is Gold!!!!!!!!!!!!!)  We are hoping for some help from the nice people at Stanton Camp and others who might read this and want to help a German nugget hunter to find his first piece of gold. AU2U all.

No big deal!

 I spent two weeks at a time and couldn’t carry out all the trash I found. But every target could have been a nugget.

 That’s why I’m not driving the thousand miles and staying home coin hunting.

 Oh boy how do I miss it. Nothing like a gold nugget coming out of the ground and you the first to ever see that nugget you now hold in your hand .

 The problem people are dropping coins out of their pockets everyday but that nugget is never replaced by another.

South East a few miles will put you on free milling gold.

      I am posting this here since there are folks on this forum from Arizona. I was wondering if anyone might have information like rules, regulations or possibly links to which agencies regulate and permit suction dredging. I know, there is not much water in AZ,  but there must be places that a person might find gold in streams.

      Does anyone have information on these silver boulders that were found in Arizona? They were on display at the Tucson Show this past February.

      Hello all,
      My soon-to-be-fiancée and I are heading to Arizona in a few weeks. She's a Science teacher and loves ALL things space. I want to take her meteorite hunting but have NO clue where to start. For the folks whose ever been to Holbrook, I have a few questions:
      1. Are there metal detector rental places nearby? We're flying in from Florida so I'd like to purchase/rent when we get there.
      2. If we drive into Holbrook, are there maps telling you where to go hunt? I'll continue to look for GPS coordinates before I go. I've read folks talking about railroad tracks...
      3. Are metal detectors the best way to find something? Can you "drag a magnet" or use the naked eye?
      Thanks for any replies. ANY help will be much appreciated.
      -Bobbo
