  1. I don't know about California, but I have been using this one for years with no problem. QUITCLAIM DEED MINING CLAIM.pdf
  2. 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/

  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Back say 20 to 30 years ago, it was common practice to leave a coin where we found a nugget with our detector.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. Yes, it's possible; but, unless you have a good knowledge of Geology and Minerals it will be like looking for a needle in a haystack. You will spend a lot of time and find nothing. If you want to find Gold, it's best to try and find what the old timers missed. Research the past Gold producing areas near you, and go from there.
  14. Here's one I used about 10 years ago when I was working/sampling some old mine dumps.
  15. JW thanks for the outstanding photos and story. Love your bikes. snakejim
  16. I received this email from White's a couple of days ago. Quote:" GOLDMASTER 24k AVAILABILITY Thanks for your patience as we launch the Goldmaster 24k. We had larger than expected pre-orders as well as some part-availability issues, so we are running about one week behind on launch. White's Electronics will begin shipping Goldmaster 24k's starting late the week of August 6th. We apologize for the delay.
  17. I agree with you Norm S., Steve has done a fine Job with his website over the years. I bought some equipment from his Store (Alaska Mining and Diving) in Anchorage Alaska in 1980, and have been a member on his forums for many years. Thanks Steve for all your hard work over the years and best wishes to you and yours in the future. Rattlesnake Jim Roswell, NM
  18. Dilek is taking care of my problem. Thanks for all your help.
