  1. Gold Catcher, The Mojave Nugget was not found by Jim Straight, but by Ty Paulson. Jim Straight knew Ty Paulson, and was prospecting in and around the Randsburg, CA area at the same time. Jim Straight in the ICMJ November 2004 Volume 74 says Ty Paulson found the Mojave Nugget in Benson Gulch on the ridge to the right side of the gulch, which is part of the taft prospectors claim, just south of PCSC (Red Chispa) claim. There have been some pretty good size multi ounce nuggets pulled out from the Red Chispa Claim, and to this date still are every now and then. Dave
  2. Throw an audio amp on there, squeeze out a little more depth 😁
  3. Doc, Can you get a dealer in australia to carry your product? Ship a whole bunch at once to save on shipping?
  4. Great find Norm... I sold my 3030 also to get a NOX 800. I have found twice as much with the 800 than I did with my 3030... dave
  5. That is a nice find to the finder. Where he found that, numerous pieces like that have been found, not as big though, even by a forum member on this site. Thank you for sharing.. Dave
  6. Rasheede11, If no gold, that place looks great for meteorite hunting... Dave.
  7. River Rat, Im sure its a little pricey for these new detectors, I have stashed some dinero into the stock market about 2 weeks ago, gonna let that ride for a year, hopefully it will pay for it.. so far up 20 % in 2 weeks....keeping fingers crossed... 🙄
  8. Phrunt, If I remember I run detector volume about 8... Dave
  9. I have the Steelphase SP01 for my GPZ 7000. I love it... It sure quiets up the sounds from the detector, and only allows targets to get through, faint targets were passed through and amplified with no problem... Dave
  10. I was wondering if anyone has heard any new information on Minelabs new Metal Detector MF5 ? Im assuming MF5 would be 5 multi frequencys? Dont know could be wrong? If this topic has been discussed please delete... Picture is from US patent, Trademark website Thanks.. Dave
  11. Hi Geelong guy, I learned the hard way, metal detecting by myself in known gold area's till I found my first nugget about 1 year later.... Best advice, is to metal detect, drywash, or whatever way your hunting for gold, is to get out with an experienced person, whos willing to show and teach you. Wish I did that myself. If you offer to pay for gas, lunch ect... Im sure an experienced person in your area would be willing to take you under their wing for a little bit, most of the prospectors on here, and know are awesome guys !!! Take Care, Dave.
  12. 1515Art, I was also approached by a deputy and investigator looking for the same guy... Weird how they found me, their helicopter hovered 50 feet above me, till the deputy showed up.... Jason, glad the guy is dead.... sorry for your losses on all your stuff, it sucks, been there done that in Dolan (Stolen) Springs... Dave
  13. Gerry, You've got that NOX dialed in dude !!! Your killing it.... Here is a picture of my first gold found with the Equinox 800 when they first came out, I think this picture was April 8, 2018.... I never leave home without it... Dave
  14. Talk about stock, dump $2,000 into some stock like Royal Caribbean, Carnival Cruises, American Airlines, Delta, ect, and wait to sell the stock Fiscal year 2021, when minelab comes out with their new $10,000 detector, all the stocks will be back up by then.... Dave
  15. Flak, I also had an original production WM12 that took forever to charge. I ended up getting a new one, that doesnt take that long to charge, but those darn things are not cheap....☚ī¸ Dave
  16. The total price is auction fees right? It sold for $7250. Including total price of $ 8700 , thats a little over $83 a gram, that is pretty darn good..
  17. Now thats a great day 1515Art... congrats... That last pic with a little piece thats shiny, what is that, meteorite ?? , hard to tell from pic. Did it respond to detector and magnet different that the other meteorites??? Thanks, Dave
  18. Nice Nugget, with that selling price of $7250, it went for a little over $69 a gram at todays prices, not to bad..... Gold is steadily climbing. I believe once the economy gets back to normal, it will go back down. How many of you are selling ? Dave
  19. Hi everyone, Been real busy lately, but put together a video from last weekend coin, and relic hunting... let me know what you guys think?? Thank you... Dave
  20. 1 Ounce US Mint $50 American Eagle Gold coins are all sold out everywhere I look. On ebay they are selling above $1800 an ounce, close to $1900.
  21. A no skunk day in the Basin, is always a great day.... congrats on the gold and meteorite. Dave
  22. Sounds like a successful trip Mitchel.... thanks for the post. If you or anyone else has found small iron like meteorites in Gold Basin, that look and act just like a Franconia iron, do not toss them, thinking this is not a typical Gold Basin Meteorite, as they are a pretty rare type of stony iron meteorite called a Mesosiderite. Myself and others have been finding them over the years, and mapping them. They scream on the detector, and snap to a magnet just like a Franconia Iron. Jim Kriegh, the founder of Gold Basin meteorites found and classified the first one in Gold Basin, as you can see from the metbul. Dave
  23. They also found a large gold deposit in Goldfield, Nevada right under the highway, they are going to move the road to mine it.. https://pvtimes.com/news/stretch-of-u-s-95-being-moved-for-nevada-gold-mining-project-77459/
  24. I use onXMaps on my phone, its $100 per year, but allows up to 2 phones to use it, so me and a buddy split the cost $50 each for a year, and it covers 50 states... Also check out Gaia GPS , 1 year is $17 for basic, or $36/yr for the land ownership, offroad maps, and a lot more. https://www.gaiagps.com/membership/ Dave
  25. Chris, You had a great year.... congrats on all the gold you got and are still getting, but thats a different story 😉. I feel 2020 will be another great year for you dude !!!! Dave
