  1. Those are beautiful gold nuggets. I really like the buttery colored rounded appearance.
  2. With the above post in mind, does anybody have any really good ideas on how to best lock/secure conex containers? I know a lot of people use them to store things. Most of the newer units come with the welded-on steel padlock covers. It would be nice to hear how others are locking them in addition to the padlock. I have seen crossbar locks that connects to the vertical locking bars like the link I have attached. Obviously if somebody wants to break in, they will regardless of how you secure the doors. Maybe a new thread on this subject? https://www.amazon.com/Equipment-Lock-HDCDL-Steel-Heavy/dp/B005CIGVWQ/ref=asc_df_B005CIGVWQ/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167148598996&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=51138861860413357&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9032424&hvtargid=pla-304941837333&psc=1
  3. Sorry to hear about your situation. Unfortunately you will probably never get most of your stuff back. Hope they can catch the bastards!
  4. I want this or something similar! Please include my name in the drawing!
  5. I bet that guy that posts youtube videos of himself giving the thumbs up for all those huge nuggets he finds lying on top of beds of sand used this detector to find his patches.
  6. That's a great project and results. Thanks for sharing. A quick bath in pool acid (muriatic) will clean up all the staining on your ingot. I pour a little bit into a plastic gold pan and swirl it around the ingot and it comes out bright and shiny. A gallon of the acid is only a couple dollars where I live.
  7. I wouldn't worry about not getting anything from Minelab. I bet White's would hook you up with a nice gift if you wrote up a story about the find and sent it to them. In my book you already won with that nugget!
  8. Testing a new lightweight Minelab super detector? Lol. Let the rumors begin!
  9. The gold is a bonus to spending time with your son, both enjoying your favorite hobby!
  10. Doc sells a compete carbon fiber shaft kit which is pretty nice and not terribly expensive. It includes 2 lower rods with the upper for $99.
  11. SDMiner-Thanks for the link to the knuckle protector! I just ordered one. Been needing something for a while now. Now I just need to find more time to get out and prospect!
  12. Great pictures and great gold finds! What a beautiful place to live.
  13. Hard work = nice gold! Sounds like a great place to spend time. Congrats on the gold.
  14. It would be noce to see what a days work would produce? Maybe since it's so remote you could stash the drywasher there so you don't have to haul it in and out? Very nice gold for an hour and a half!
