    9" Round High Frequency Coil Or Elliptical?

    Ridge Runner I had the XP Deus for awhile but sold it. I actually miss it and wish I had kept it.

    9" Round High Frequency Coil Or Elliptical?

    Nobody is saying you "need" the x 35 to coin hunt.
  3. Sweeping his huge hand in front of the coil kind of makes the comparison in the second video worthless. At what point is it detecting the gold or just his hand?

    XP Orx For Gold Nugget Detecting?

    That is pretty much my thinking. I sold my XP last year but I had both HF coils and spent a fair amount of time using it as a gold detector. My biggest complaint was I really wished it could have had a smaller elliptical coil option. If the ORX was $200 cheaper I might be tempted to purchase one. But even at that price it would probably be third on my list of possibilities.
  5. Just curious if anyone has had an experience using a Fisher Gemini 3 or similar detector in prospecting trying to find an ore vein. Fisher Gemini-3 Two Box metal detector

    Montana Gold Nuggets

    That brought back memories that I had totally forgotten about. I stopped by his shop a couple times in the late 1980's or so, and was impressed with all the gold he had there, but never saw the big specimen. I think all he said at the time about the big specimen was it came from somewhere north of some point in Arizona. Can't remember if he told me that (because I know I asked) or if I read it in a magazine.

    White's Goldmaster 24K - New For 2018

    Well nuts. I was hoping they would be available before mid July. I sold my XP Deus and HF coils, guess I should have waited.

    Gerry, Can you say when you will be able to take orders?

    What Detector Would You Get?

    The Fisher Gold Bug 2 would be something else to consider for small gold. And if you have some time and can wait I think the new Whites detector coming out in a couple months looks promising.

    Minelab Warranty

    Outside of other risks, if a person purchased an unopened, never registered Minelab detector from a unauthorized dealer/party, say a pawn shop. Would Minelab cover warranty service without a receipt from an authorized dealer?

    Whats Wrong With This Gold Photo?

    No GPS data with the photo so I don’t know where to go.

    Brazilian Gold

    Ok. I was all set to spend money now, but guess I can wait. Till July at least. Hopefully something will be known by then.

    Brazilian Gold

    So if a guy was looking at buying a new gold detector for this summer should he maybe wait?

    The New Makro Kruzer Series!

    For the Kruzer and Multi Kruzer I saw a listing of coils on a dealer site: 5” DD (KR13) 7.5” x 4” DD (KR19) 9.5” x 5” DD (KR24) 11” x 7” DD (KR28) 15.5” x 14” DD (KR40) 7” Concentric (KR18C) “Coils for Makro Kruzer and Multi Kruzer. Not compatible with Gold Kruzer.”

    Claim Validity Question

    The claim could possibly be invalid. But from personal experience, I have had my county misfile my paperwork for 2 years in a row before I caught it and it appeared I hadn't filed my assessment. Actually have had the BLM do it once too on a location notice. So I would do a little more in-depth search if you were planing on filing on it just to be safe.
