Just as a general idea, there is detectable gold in the wider Bagdad area, if that helps keep the spirits up for a little more exploration closer to home. 

I've had absolutely horrible and entirely regretable experience sharing specific areas with some people in Arizona, leaving a lot of areas I loved completely and utterly decimated. It's happened to others too, and there are a lot of people highly guarded about discussing areas in Arizona as a result of it. It's a shame because there are some amazing finds in the state that just never get seen at all now because of it all.

That's definitely a shame so I get your reluctance to share information on hard won areas after putting in the time and legwork to discovery. I wouldn't be surprised to find that attitude prevalent in other areas as well.

Steve H...I agree! I personally posted what club claim I found several nuggets on in the El Paso mountains. I had gone over and over the claims and did share the info. I even took a several friends in the club there. If they can be successful then I'm happy for them and would like to bring a big smile to their faces. One person had a GPX6000 and I knew he could get deeper than I could with my EQ800...so unless and until I pull the trigger on a 6000..best of luck to him. I have to say though that most times in life..not always, that I find how you treat people is reciprocated. The 6000 owner offered to split everything he found. he was not successful but he offered to go out together and let me get some hands-on-time with his 6000 and I am going to take him up on it.

That sounds like a win-win for both of you guys. I was thinking of doing something similar as I  have pretty much exhausted a small patch in the Bradshaws using my 5000. Having someone else go over the same ground with either a 6000 or a 7000 could be interesting and might convince me to upgrade at least to the 6000. Incidently I've had some success here with a drywasher and another operator has recovered a fair amount of fine gold using a GB2.

I have never done any prospecting in the El Paso mountains although I've passed through Randsburg  a time or two.  Sure seems like a hot (good) area to prospect so maybe one of these days.

If it is who I think it is, he's a good guy and trustworthy. I like your attitude aerospace gent...
