  1. I would check that dudes Loc notice at the county, sounds kinda shady. Nothing worse than claim flippers getting in the way of real miners. I had a bad experience with his type before and the word charlatan comes to mind. Maybe he is legit on this claim, but be very wary with anything they claim or say. Check his paperwork and confirm everything. LR2000, county recorder, you know the ropes... Thats a bummer I feel your pain!
  2. Darn you Sourdough and Roooster! Thats ma patch. Didnt take me more than a second to recognize that conspicuous landmark of a pine in the upper corner! 😁
  3. Nice coil, phrunt. Hopefully NF can do something similar.
  4. I'm also wishing for that small coil option. 12" is too close to the original coil size imo
  5. RIP Fred, until that day For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible
  6. Wow looks like digi gold trading $1730 today and heavy metal in the hand trending an additional $200. Prices moving fast up and down just like the world situation now. You just dont know what to expect day to day or even hour by hour.
  7. In the CA motherload belt there is a virtual continuous gold deposit some 200 plus miles long. Some creeks and hills have more gold than others, but basically there is some amount if you stay within or near the belt. Then there are some real hot spots the old timers worked hard which became famous. X's were marked on maps, reports written, and rumors still float about to this day how rich the area was. Well I aint never done very good in those so called hot spots. Its usually been some no name side job nearby that has no record or reports, and produces the goods.
  8. Yep I'd try the earplugs. Your hearing will be sharp when you arrive and not all droned out from the road noise.
  9. JP, I have been running almost those same settings on a patch here in CA Motherload, but I max sensitivity to 19. At the lower settings I just dont seem to hear the deep targets. Do you ever run your sensitivity up higher in Hy/Difficult? Just wondering why you prefer the lower setting. Thanks!
  10. Sounds like you pick it up around the 5 second mark, and then swinging over the target about 4 times.
  11. Hi Mitchel, You just need to live closer to the gold. Eventually you would get on a fresh patch. No need to struggle listening for whispers then. Thats the secret of most these consistent guys. They live on it, or near it, and get out every week hiking the hills. You are a great detector operator and more experienced than most.
  12. I had that yellow one and the teeth broke off. We were pretty aggressive though. I ended up with one made by red rooster with concave stamped teeth, which has held up very well.
  13. Looking for a gpx handle with a good ground balance button. I only need the green swx to be in good shape. My sdc2300 button popped off, and I believe the switch is the same. Let me know what ya have. Thanks!
