My collection is growing these were found within the last 30 days ..... I hunt locations on Google Earth Pro ...... and use the MRDS ..... 

MRDS describes metallic and nonmetallic mineral resources throughout the world (select Arizona). Included are deposit names, locations, commodities, deposit description, geologic characteristics, production, reserves, resources, and references. The Six dirty nuggets in my hand came out of the same hole...... 

 

If you feel like starting a "how to" post on what that all means and how to do it I will be an interested party!

This was in Cave Creek ..... Take old mine road from Cave Creek....... Take it toward the mountains and start climbing to the top, it dead ends at a BLM claim that's locked but don't claim jump take the left side of the road and it will dead end where a mountain side collapsed....... Keep going on foot another 1.5 to two miles up until you reach the quartz vein..... Can't miss it .....

Man you need a pinPointer, You can dig much more with less time trying to find it.

Pin pointers are not that great for gold Nugs. Yes they can be used. They just dont react to small nugs very well. Now Australia type big hogs yep they find those.

Scoot,

Don't pay attention to nay sayers, you are doing a lot right!  Nice job on research and determination.  Well done and wishing you much success going forward>

We are not nay saying him. It is valuable help that if he follows he will keep adding to his growing stack of nuggets.

I would say the video would be a great video to show how not to retrieve a nug. A small nug say .10gram wont be found that way. Get a second scope. No dirt is dumped till both scopes are scanned. The scope with no beeps gets dumped in a single pile away from the hole. Some times you get two targets, one in each scope. Scan twice dump once lol.

I got my first target right away, the .22 cal casing and then after that I only had one target remaining (low signal)...... The Orx let's you know if there are more targets in the hole believe me, I kept scanning and heard something was still in the hole, I dug a hole before in Rio Verde Arizona and found (5) nuggets in the very large and deep hole they are the dirty ones in this picture (dirty ones on the right)......IMG_20191116_124705.thumb.jpg.6d46e9f434c2c21d071663d36d33ce56.jpg.......

      I’d have to say the Orx has been a successful venture for XP. But what comes next?  Their R&D must be working on a next generation detector, so what direction do you think they will go? An incremental change in existing technology or a whole new direction?  I haven’t a clue but I’m interested in what others think might be coming in the future, although right now I’m sure their focus is on getting their stock replenished after COVID

      I really enjoy the orx and all it's attributes. for me it is a no nonsense detector with excellent recovery speed and separation, a very clean and clear audio, selectable frequency and wireless everything. add to cart an update that would provide 4 tones and iron volume. oh yes it has great ergonomics too. thank you XP.

      Maybe this should be in the Detector Prospector section but wanted to keep the XP section alive.
      I was in Las Vegas last weekend and decided to swing over to the Gold Basin area and do a little metal detecting. There were 3 of us and we didn't find much. But we did manage to find some gold and meteorites. The ORX is turning out to be a pretty good machine. Not as deep on the really small stuff, like a Gold Monster would pick up but it's not far behind.

      I bought a house in meadview about 4 years ago.  Every couple months when I go there I try to get over to gold basin to do some detecting or drywashing.  It took me a couple years to find my first nugget out there and its been a couple of years since then and I havent found another.  I swing an SDC and I've read people have done pretty good out there with that model.  I find plenty of lead and boot tacks a inch or two down but not much deeper than that.   What settings are people using out there?  How deep down are people finding the gold?  Would I be better off with a  different model that can go deeper?  I'm not very confident in my abilities since I learned this machine on my own and have only found 2 pieces in the 4 years and dozens of times I've used it.  Any advice would be appreciated.

      This is an interesting little story about Mineral Park, Arizona.  It tells about a geologist who was told to find ore or be fired.  There is a bit of history about fine gold recovery also.

      Te dejo algunas imágenes del fin de semana de detección en la cordillera de los Andes, salieron unas pepitas de oro
