  1. More on California paleo channels... The Tertiary Gravels of the Sierra Nevada of California 1911 USGS Professional Paper 73 by Waldemar Lindgren. A California geology classic. An account of the Tertiary formations of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the origin and distribution of the gold-bearing (auriferous) gravels.
  2. The fact that you can disc out target id numbers means the Gold Mode is not a classic all metal mode, but a very powerful "accept all items" discrimination mode. Add iron bias, recovery speed, etc - filters galore.

  4. Garrett already makes security scanners.... now add thermal imaging looking for high fevers among those passing through. https://garrett.com/security/smartscan-system
  5. Another vote for the steveg counterbalance rod....
  6. It would help to know which model you are talking about. Minelab uses a lot of different battery systems.
  7. As shown on the last page I picked up an Ames True Temper 2037400 46-Inch ash shovel replacement handle, which fit my hardware without needing shims. The handle tapers at the end, and I sawed the taper off so the bolts fit the thickest part of the handle. I do not think Brian did this above, and you can see the length difference in the u-bolt excess becasue of it. The u-bolts are too long but other than that the hardware supplied with mine is fine. I double bolted and used loctite, so not expecting issues there.
  8. and another detector loses its virginity - congratulations!

  10. Is this a new device? There are many counterfeit versions of the F75 in the market, so I hope you purchased from a legitimate seller.
  11. I love it when you guys make massively "all or nothing" type statements. The Impulse AQ is not perfect in salt. It is also not a "flop." Several people have reported issues with fast moving salt water. Others are not having the issue. What that means is there has been a problem, but the fact from my perspective is the jury is still out on what the issue may be. Is this all the units, or just a few? A single cause, or perhaps different things going on with different people? Questions get overlooked as everyone wants to make big declarations, about what does or does not work. Just beca
  12. It's not a matter of "allowed" or not. Nothing is being deleted, just relocated. I move all threads that are specific to a brand and model to the appropriate forum, and that includes Minelab posts. After about 6 pages, the only stuff that remains here are general prospecting and detecting stuff. So all the GPX 6000 threads will move to the Minelab forum when they go inactive long enough. All thread moves have a reference link for 30 days, so it's not like things move secretly. The White's thread in question started on the White's forum. I moved it here, then back, creating a cross link fo
  13. Don’t know, just quoting Willy, and Alexandre has said similar things. I suspect the old blue units were not sealed in a similar fashion, being true prototypes. Whatever, Just passing on what was said previously.
