  1. Leave a tub of water open by your truck in the desert, or try a reciculating sluice, and you will learn how many bees there are quickly
  2. Gpx 5000 you can use 7.4v 8000 mah lithium. Is lightweight, plus you get much less emi. The remote control vehicle ones work well. Goldhound had a good post on this but I cant find it. There are many makes but they are like this https://www.amazon.com/HOOVO-Connector-Helicopter-Airplane-Quadcopter/dp/B07V5FZV2M/ref=mp_s_a_1_5?crid=N6PH1RPB8I3M&keywords=2s+traxxas+lipo+battery+10000mah+7.4v&qid=1683904030&sprefix=2s+tracxas+lipo+battery+10000+mah+7.4v%2Caps%2C225&sr=8-5
  3. I get tired of seeing this every couple of years. I have never known gold replenish except fly specs. I agree it is the 100 to 500 year flood when the water is 20-30 feet above normal that really has a chance of moving gold. The only real bonanza is removal of overburden making new areas accessible.
  4. Take a look at our teddy bear cholla...
  5. The training nowadays for most items is on youtube, like it or not
  6. Wonder if this has anything to do with the GPX sale a month or so ago?
  7. I agree, hunt outside the box. That is where there is real potential for good finds.
  8. Fartraveller, It may help a little to know what state you are considering. From your references/tools used you are in the southwest US correct? But there are a bunch of states that have 6000+ elevation. I am with Norvic - hunt ground where there are no big mines, more chance of nothing, but more chance of untouched spots. They are still there- old timers didnt have detectors, and older detectors cant handle ground modern ones can. Geology map will show the right ground
  9. Be careful of the temperatures for the next few months. They kill seasoned desert folk every year, including a couple of people i knew in last couple of years alone.
  10. So could you train it on a specific small square of geology where you know gold to be, and have it find similar
  11. Many find more, many find less. Few wish to divulge
  12. I have one of these too and they make a big difference. The other large difference was moving away from the big brick battery to lithium RC batteries. Once you get rid of the battery amplifier it is a whole lot quieter and you can run much hotter, which means better depth and higher stability setting
  13. You cant go wrong with the NF evolution series coils. Great depth on small stuff
