Ok I was just curious and I have been trying to find out without any luck so I am going to ask this question here......
Who owns the long John Latham magazine and lost treasure magazine copy rights?
What if I wrote a little article about metal detecting research or whatever and wanted to use an old article or story for a reference that was in one of these old magazines that are no longer in print.....how would I go about getting permission to use the old articles or the rights to use them??
Anyone know anything about this kind of stuff??

What do you do with this stuff from years of detecting. All the gold and silver & diamond jewelry was sent to a refinery and provided me a few thousand dollars spending money, Have a lot more jewelry that is not displayed as there isn't any more room. Hundreds and hundreds of keys and tokens. this is just some of my finds over the years. March box cars, civil war relics from VA. Guess I just leave it and let the kids sort it out.
For several years now I have been dragging my buddy to new places that I thought would be good spots to detect. We both have darn little to show for all our effort.
To make up for it, I got a well known nugget detectorist to take us into the field for some lessons. Here are three important take-aways from that trip:
1) High hills in old burn areas are great places to identify new nugget fields.
2) He showed us such an area where there were a great many very small-scale mining features that were invisible In Google Earth, yet the burn made them quite visible from a hilltop. Our guide said that based on his detecting experience, there were many more overlooked gold pieces to find here and in similar areas.
3) It can be easy to recognize the presence of hidden pockets in old burns by the discolored downhill soil these pockets shed. He said this was a common occurrence, and even if they have been mined historically, there were still gold pieces to be found in these places, but again I couldn't see a thing on Google Earth.
He's a great guy, he's very knowledgeable, and he's expensive. I don't have his permission to list his name here, but he may added it at some time.
EDIT: He said I can use his name. It's Ray Mills of Redding, California. His online name is AUTrinity.
I know just about any machine can be used for coin shooting. However sometimes one unit is better than another. So I have been kind of thinking, maybe I am thinking a little too much but I wanted to see what some of you use primarily for a coin shooting only metal detector??

Looking for recommendations on a reliable backpacker model for small nugget/hardrock detecting. likely will be charging it on portable solar for extended hikes.
I'll be in remote country over scree fields, rocks, peaks and creeks far from wheeled and motor transportation.
I have the Mine lab 5000, but it is a bit to heavy for my adventurous soul. the 5k works great around home country.
my grandkids broke one of the battery door push pin connectors to my amigo II, does anyone know where I could find a replacement one? It appears to be exactly like the one on my old whites goldmaster II. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank's to all that reply.
