  1. Greed is an evil thing and I have lost what I thought were friends over gold/greed. What is amazing is guys like you and I want to help people become successful and my staff/I enjoy being around clients/friends when they dig their 1st gold. Sorry you had to go through that.
  2. Rick, When I 1st started detecting Rye Patch in the mid 90's, I was poor and many trips from Idaho, I'd carpool and pay half the gas. Life was simple back then with just the basics. I'd sleep on the ground on a tarp and toss a military wool blanket over me and all was good. Well about a yr later my old-timer friend Tom C. (since passes away) pulled out one of those night lights. It was amazing the amount of glowing scorpions scattering all around us. I bet we counted 15+ in a matter of 30' area and it was right there above the burn barrel. When I was a teenager out catfishing one n
  3. Some very good input and answers by a variety of seasoned/new detectorists. Yes most certainly with the price increase of gold around $2000 US, the Security is essential. We hear so many stories now of vehicles getting broken into, just to steal the detecting gear. Luckily we don't hear as many stories of actual houses getting broken into and their gold being stolen, but I know it happens. One of my NV buddies who was loved by many and a wealth of Northern Nevada knowledge had the most beautiful custom made bar in his house and the bar was designed to have built in display cases
  4. I get to share many more stories, photos and sometimes videos of amazing gold discoveries than the average person, mostly do to the fact I sell metal detectors and my customers are usually happy to share their Success stories. On occasion I get to see some finds that I can never show or share as the finder has asked that of me. Boy has there been some crazy amounts of gold being recovered with detectors still. Sure wish I could tell you all but I'd then piss off some of those who take me for my word and I'd prefer not to lose that friendship. My question is, what do you folks do wh
  5. Interesting rock and it sure made the NOX scream in the video. I found a couple graphite nodules in hears past tat read as non ferrous. At a site in Oregon, there are quite a few grey/black rocks that fool many detectors, even when ID'ing. The rusty tin tell you there was activity in the area back in the day and probably from another early prospector. Nice to see a piece of gold come home with you.
  6. They didn't provide details. It was actually found a few weeks ago but they were scared to show it off. Some folks clam up when something big is found and at times I don't blame them.
  7. One of my customers recently found a stunning: near 4 pound quartz boulder with just under 11 ozt of gold with his GPX-5000. Just goes to show you those multi thousand dollar treasures are still out there being dug up. Yes this came from the lower 48 states. Good luck everyone.
  8. 1 ounce day is pretty dang good and I know you worked hard to get them. Nice to see you on here Rob. Hopefully we'll have a good dinner together next time around (Australia).
  9. Glad to see you let the gold lady get her fix. Yes the CoilTek 10" Ellip Extreme coil on the SDC-2300 is very killer. Many of my customers have had great success. Smart of you to improvise for a scoop. Yes there are more scorpions in NV than most folks realize. Nice gold.
  10. GPZ-7000 is Mint Like new (Approx 10 hrs use) and was purchased May of this yr. Has a brand new 19" coil still in box. Transferable warranty is good until May 2023 which is 2 and a half years. Also join Lunk and my other Field Staff for 3 days of in depth gold detector training/camping with like minded people all wanting to learn their gold detectors., Nov. 6th - 8th at Rye Patch, NV or join Lunk this winter in AZ for a full 1 day 1 on 1. $6500 and I do not charge tax. PayPal or card add 3%. Personal Check/Cash is preferred or pick up in person. If you are prior US Milit
  11. Glenn, So glad you were able to get out there and score another highly collectible CO specimen piece. Your pics are so beautiful and those gold pieces are genuine gems. Hopefully the family who was video taping the crazy ATV rider, now realizes how dangerous they can be and life is just a second away from being gone. Thanks again for sharing.
  12. Mitchel, Buddy if we lived closer, I'd be out there with you. I get those silly thoughts on occasion and something just keeps pocking at me to go do it. Much of the time it is just to get out and nothing gets found, but on occasion those pokes to go, actually do put me on the gold. I've done well along the freeway near Dome Rock. Nice story, pics and yes you got gold.
  13. Norvic - You are correct my friend and we have all done it. Sometimes it's much worse of an afterwards hike to find it and other times, it's just a matter of turning around and walking 20 feet back to the truck to get it. The gold fever is for real and all of us on here are guilty. I'll be the 1st to admit it, but in reality, it is not just gold for me, I get that natural high from an old coin or relic just the same. Thanks for adding context. Geof_Junk - It's just amazing the items people lose and we find. I was called to find a radio for the Idaho Fish & Game that an offic
  14. I too seen the multiple posts of used SDC-2300's. My crystal ball tells me many things are coming and some better than others. One could only suspect the SDC-2400 to be released soon, but I doubt before Thanksgiving. Heck Steve, If I knew there was a new version SDC coming out, I'd most certainly not be taking units back in trade. I do feel honored that you think I might know something, but in reality it is you who we all watch, listen and admire. When you sold the last big gold detector (I think it was a year ago), everyone started dumping theirs and the rumors started. A
