  1. Where do you live, I am just outside of Kalispell?
  2. Thanks for all the comment guys............ I realy wish I could have a 7000 but just can't justify it because of where I live. I just am not able to get out much for detecting. However after a few trips with "Mugsy" who has one, I gotta say that I am very impressed with the number of smaller nuggets it produces. BTW Steve this is a little off topic but I discovered and maybe everyone else knows this but me, we found good sized nuggets in Alaska, (a place you are familiar with) that the 7000 found but were not detectable with a 4000 or 4500. These were NOT small nuggets. I was surpri

  4. Can anyone give me some feedback on a comparison between a GPX 4500 and GPX 5000....
  5. Anybody had modifications done to GPX 4500 by "Detector Mods"? reviews appreciated, wondering if it's worth the $2200.00.
  6. Panner...I do not have a dredge although I also like dredging, what are you referring to about Black Hills for a week?
  7. Looking for first hand info about Libby Creek in MT.. I am not interested in the public panning area, but looking for information about claims of GPAA and NWMGP, or other possibilities. I am mostly interested in detector prospecting but also enjoy highbanking. Does anyone know what folks find in the way of nuggets? Also size of claims, access, area camping opportunities for small RV's. Any and all information would be appreciated. I am considering joining a club if that is my only option to access claims but would like to get some feedback from anyone who has worked the area. I have gotten inf
  8. The addition of the new claims sound interesting, I don't know if one of them is the one Old Mugsy visited with Augie, but sounds like that was a great spot, sounded like neat trip just getting there. Just kidding about the "old" thing, actually I turn 60 today and can't even believe it, in my mind I am still 25 years old. The Four wheeler thing is not really a "must", as Betty says, there is lots of ground within walking distance and certainly you don't need one if you are into highbanking or dredging, (by the way dredging sounds like a great idea I love to do that). If that was what I was co
  9. I visited AKAU last summer, spent two weeks at the camp, and was joined by Keith, an OLD prospecting partner of mine. I spent a lot of time previously at Moore Creek and Ganes Creek, before they both shut down to "pay to mime" operations. Currently AKAU is probably your best bet for this type of Alaska experience. Of course I had a great time as usual, as I love to go to these type of places to play in the dirt, have fun with what is usually a great bunch of people, not have to bathe, and have the opportunity to detect on rich ground and maybe find some good gold. I was hesitant about the adve
  10. Thanks for sharing the info, looks like plenty to get me started. Unfortunately nothing in my back yard, I should have moved a bit south a bit!
  11. Recently moved to the Kalispell area, does anyone know anything about historical mining in this area, prospecting clubs, etc?
