  1. This story is of a friend of mine, "Bob Ellithorpe" an equipment operator in Colorado. The rock is on display in the Denver Museum of Natural History and I have personally seen it on display! http://pagosasprings.com/the-summitville-141-oz-gold-boulder/

  3. I don't remember how many years ago that it was, but Minelab said to drag a chain to ground the detector from static build up. The reference might be found with some research? I do know the Aussies did drag a chain, but that was to mark where they had detected before.
  4. Is there anyone still hunting for meteorites in this area? I'm in Roswell and spoke to Skip Wilson (famous meteorite hunter in Portales, NM), years ago. I just never found time to go look myself.
  5. The good old days. I was a Minelab Dealer and Wilma Beaumont was the distributor near Las Vegas. My dealer cost was $2836.00 for an SD2000 in that first shipment to the US.
  6. I never met Jim in person, but had corresponded with him many times over the years. I have many of his books. He will be sorely missed.
  7. He did some work for me a couple of years ago. I have his phone number and tried to call him a while back, but he didn't answer the phone.
  8. I have an early TDI and It can use the MInelab coils. IF I buy it, i can check them both; one against the other with the same coil.
  9. What's it worth for a GP Extreme like new? A friend has one like new with 3 coils, 8"mono, 11DD, and 18"DD. Has a Hard case with it. He wants $600. Is it worth it? Thanks! Rattlesnake Jim
  10. Back say 20 to 30 years ago, it was common practice to leave a coin where we found a nugget with our detector.
  11. You might try this one, and it won't break the bank. https://www.detectorprospector.com/metal-detector-database/whites-tm-808-r38/ Download the manual to see how it works. It will not detect single coins, rings, small items, etc.
  12. Devilsrenegade, I have a friend there in Polson. It must not be too far away. Allthough it's a big lake? Best wishes and best of luck to you! snakejim
  13. Back in the early 1980's I repaired a Fisher Gemini Detector for Letha Guthrie. I also sold her group another detector. She was Doc Noss' stepdaughter(Ova Noss' daughter) and lived in Clovis New Mexico. They were trying to get congress or had just got an approval from congress to get into White sands missile range to look for Doc's treasure cave on Victorio Peak. A very interesting Lady and story.
