    Last Hunt, Bb Nugget, And Crushed Speci

    Chris you have been killing it lately out there. This skunk will get off my back soon ...😉. You got a lot more gold on that speci than I thought also... I was figuring 3 or 4 grams, congrats dude !!! Dave.

    Short Day Out

    That is a great looking piece Chris. Congrats on a nice find. If you do specific gravity test on it, let us know how much gold is in it.... Hope those nickels bring you good luck, When some prospectors find a gold nugget they leave behind a nickel in the hole to show appreciation or respect to the earth or God for their good luck. Here is a webpage about nickels... Dave
  4. Doc, Great story, thanks for sharing.... I enjoy reading your adventures... also like your new adjustable bungy design, will have to get one. Dave.
  5. Jim knows exactly where the Mojave Nugget was found out there.... hope he gives the pointy finger to someone 😉
  6. Those darn Vegas Chips ... 😉 , are you going on that private tour with Jim Straight near Randsburg? Bet you could find some nice little pieces there 😁
  7. Lunk, Thanks for the report, and congrats on the great gold with that 6" coil dude. I also got a 6" for my nox800, love the NOX compared to the CTX, which I used for years. It hits great on gold, and have found some nice old coins and artifacts in the desert with it also. Neat little trick I learned not to long ago, from the prospecting, park, and field modes, if you are getting an iffy signal, like nickels, or even trash, place the machine in all metal mode and pump coil above target, a trashy target will usually dip into the negative, as your gold and nickels will usually stay in the 1 and above.

    Mining In Film

    Mitchel, I remember that movie, good one. One of my favorite mining movie is the oldie but goodie Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Dave

    Managed To Find A Small Patch

    Chris, Good to see you got some good pieces out there. Congrats dude !!! Hope you get approved for the surgery on your appeal. It had been a while since a nice find like that. Until next time, Dave
  10. Some pretty cool finds from everyone, thanks for sharing. While using a GPZ 7000, I found a very nice condition Union Soldiers Infantry Button about 2 feet down, in the SW. Wish we could see the stories behind some of our finds.

    I'm Glad That I Didn't Sell It

    Glad you held on to it Mitchel, the 3030 is a good machine. I sold my 3030 to buy 2 Equinox 800 machines. I have found twice as much with the Nox, than I did with my 3030. Especially in high trash areas, old mining camps, where I could not run the 3030, with all the trash / iron. I also love how much the NOX is so much lighter... Dave

    Holbrook Arizona Meteorite Hunt

    I tried all settings... You cannot have any discrimination on, or it blanks them out. They are an L/LL . With discrimination off, the horseshoe mode, you can hear them... but cannot walk 2 feet without hitting trash out there...

    Holbrook Arizona Meteorite Hunt

    Richard got a nice 5 gram, and 2 gram piece, Eric got several 1 and 2 grams pieces. Mike (mikestang) and Robby went there 2 weeks before us, and got a nice 40 gram piece with other smaller ones also...
  14. Hey Mitchel, If youve seen Li Bofang facebook he has a lot of pics on it...... tons of meteorite and gold pictures and stories on facebook everyone shares... Dave.
