  1. My training classes will have topics I cover in my book The Nugget Shooter's Field Guide as well as my new book I am currently writing, called Strategic Gold Detecting -The Art and Science of Gold Nugget Exploration and Recovery. There will be a lot of topics covered and will put guys on the path to finding gold consistently and will also benefit very experienced nugget hunters who have been doing this for years. You can go to my website https://goldseekeradventures.com to read more about it. Feel free to give me a call if you have questions. 1(406) 309-1009. -Reese Townes
  2. Coiltek 14x9 GoldHawk Mono coil for the Gpx 6000 for sale. Very good depth on small gold . It is very hot with excellent pinpointing ability. $300 plus shipping. Used just a few times over the course of 3 weeks. Call 1-(406) 309-1009 cell. Reese Townes
  3. The nugget was around 18" deep. Deep downin a bedrock crack. It took him over an hour to get it broke out of the crack. He was using the 11" mono.
  4. My buddy and claim partner got a hell of a nice score yesterday on our 2nd claim that we just purchased last week. Both of our claims have big gold.
  5. Dealers can't be testers for Minelab anymore from what I was told. Conflict of interest.
  6. I will pass. Holding out for the 8000.😁. Oh by the way a friend up here in Montana is selling his claim. Very rich claim with big gold nuggets. Fairly close to my claim but way richer than my claim. I will be putting some pics and more info on the classified section next Friday. This will be only for the serious buyers. $110,000. It has never been worked, except detecting a little while by him. Old timers never found this deposit.
  7. That was a good story of what happened to you General Mayhem. I got a really good visual of the incident. Where abouts are you from north of me?
  8. Didn't go detecting today. Instead I sorted out an ounce of gold and got it cleaned up with CLR. Sure came out pretty. This ounce is paying for my share of our new claim we are buying. Had a hell of a hail, thunder, rain storm an hour ago or more. Did a number on the road into the gulch.
  9. Got 6 small ones today. I am liking this coil. It is sensitive for sure. EMI wasn't too bad today. Even with EMI you know when you have a target. Even when it doesn't repeat both directions, and is incredibly faint, it will get the tiniest pieces of gold. If Coiltek is reading this, you really should bevel the bottom edge of your coils. It makes a huge difference, preventing coil from catching on everything.
  10. I know what you mean with camping in the back yard. The back yard at my son's mom's place had a black bear and cubs a month or two ago, right in town. The high river prevented her from getting her cubs across so she just hung out in the neighborhood till the fish and game got them back across the river. I had a good day. Lots of iron and wire and 1 nugget.
  11. I had to move my camp 50 feet because a miner/rancher was complaining about me camped where I was since May 22 to the BLM cops, so the nice cops came back and said just move 50 ft towards the creek and you will be good til end of September. Well that flying squirrel moved with me. πŸ˜†πŸ€£. He is active at night and has big eyes. He reminds me of something you would see in Australia. Check out the heart on the big nugget I got yesterday. I just noticed it last night. Back up today to get some more yellow metal 😊πŸͺ™. Y'all be good and have a great day.
  12. Im looking forward to getting the 7"x12.5" Nugget Finder and 10x16. It is crunch time with getting the gold before I head south at end of October. I have a goal of another 1 - 1.5 oz. This camping in griz territory is stressful. I have been camping amonst them since May 22 and all the critters I have had to deal with is annoying and taking a toll on my moral. Fly's trying to get into your ear canal constantly, mosquitos, silk worms, millers, centipedes, other types of worms, mice, a northern flying squirrel woke me up last night. It was on top of my tent at the peak 10' high chewing and scratching. I first thought it was a bear outside my tent getting into something, until I realized the noise was coming from the top of the tent. Then I smacked the roof panel of the tent with the broom and a couple minutes later you could hear it walking down the fabric and jumping back onto the tree behind the tent. It ate the screen mesh of one of my tent windows a month ago or so.
  13. Well "Smaug's Gold" my claim, has alot of EMI and there is no avoiding it. Some days are better than others. I will need to observe it over the next several days detecting with it. There is alot of smoke in the air up in these mountains and alot of airplane traffic. Might be that, might be solar flares. I don't know, but it is getting gold on ground 2-3 of us have pounded with 3 6000's using the 11" and 17". I suppose each coil they make could vary on how hot each one is. Perhaps I have a hot πŸ”₯ coil. I don't know if that is possible but I am liking it. It feels almost twice as heavy as the 11". I really love the Minelab 17" coil. It's gotten me alot of gold. I'll let y'all know if coming days it quiets down.
  14. Got my new Coiltek 9x14 mono GoldHawk yesterday and this morning I went up to my claim. I got a slow start getting onto gold and was thinking I may not like this coil. The last part of the day, I hit the first nugget, and I thought, it's about time. After that the nuggets just kept coming. It is noisier than the 11" and 17" Minelab coils and it falses alot. Tried several sensitivity settings and had to do a factory reset twice and noise cancel a few more times, but each time I passed over one, it heard it.
