  1. I purchased the 12 inch Nuggetfinder Z coil from Rob last week. I took the stock coil off and held the stock and Z coil in my arms held straight out. What a significant weight reduction on the new coil. I had a couple of hours free last Sunday. So I went up to a beaten patch of mine that I've found 100s of small nuggets in and a few bigger pieces. I found this nugget in 2 hours of looking. Not sure how I missed this with the stock coil, but I did. I had to have been over that spot dozens of times. Never heard anything there. But 1st pass with the Z coil it gave me a down low with a sli
  2. Had to laugh, was watching a old western few weeks ago. One of the guys in town built a shower that would continuously run. He gave the prettiest girl in town the honors of christening the shower. So all of the men in town waited outside the shower as the lady undressed and placed her undergarments on the hook outside the shower. When she took off her last piece, one of the men said" she's down to bedrock now boys" ๐Ÿ˜†
  3. So we support Minelab by purchasing their so called latest detecting technology. With the capability of doing software updates over your own computer. Then we are told their will be periodically updates to the GPZ 7000. There hasn't been one in 3 years now if I'm correct. So what's the use of even having that option if Minelab is going to hold out that technology for their future new flagship. Until Minelab comes out with. PI machine with discrimination, I'll just stick with my 7000. Why change, I'm already accustomed to the weight of it.
  4. I came across this years ago. If the link doesn't work, Look up Larry Garside from UNR. https://documentcloud.adobe.com/link/review?uri=urn:aaid:scds:US:b182eb24-c36f-4b98-a0ae-bcae2656145a
  5. Update: This is not fake gold news! I touched up the photo to show the striations of the nuggets. They are very unique. Especially for this location.
  6. I want to thank everyone for the tips and advice. Much appreciated. I took a try at making a homemade one out of ply and some fabric I had around. I'll see if it works.
  7. I got me a Gold Buddy Drywasher a few years ago from a friend. Never used it, now I have plans to use it, and can't find the insert that holds the Drywasher cloth under the riffles. If anyone has one and can shoot me a picture of it? And or any other ideas of what cloth to use? Much appreciated. I would have put this in the gold prospecting forum, but wanted to get some exposure on here first. Steve can move it or delete it after I get some help from you guys.
  8. Just saw this on Facebook. This is a changing of the guard moment in American metal detectors.
  9. Tom, I'm amazed you defected from Whites! Lol. Nice job on the nuggets.
  10. I guess the treasure has been found. https://www.oldsantafetradingco.com/

  12. I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of Fred. I thoroughly enjoyed him. His Chili Verde was famous. But I actually met Fred when I was 12 years old in Portola. We got new neighbors next to us. Fred's sister moved next to us. And Fred was doing drywall in Portola, staying with Rosemary. It wasn't until I joined WSPA, that Fred and I were talking at a outing dinner, he heard I was from Portola, and asked if I knew his sister, I said yes, she lived next door to me. I then remembered him. It was 35 years later. My condolences to the Mason family. ๐Ÿ™
  13. Rooster is quite upset at you. He even calls you Uncle Norm! And you forgot all of the essentials for a mining dog. Like milk bones, pizza, jerky, salami and both of your favorites, rice cakes. Let alone cheese and crackers. Roo is very sad right now.๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ•
