  1. Welp, I reckon to sell a sack of nuggets for one of these magic wands. But, I'm cornfused. Does Minelab keep, share, sell, store, trade or do some fantastical wonders with my data? Can I fliparoo a switch to turn off the GPS? Can I fliparoo a switch to stop GPS transmissions? Heck, I just dunno, Maybe one of you do or we can call Scooby Doo!
  2. When Chris Ralph and I were down in Phoenix I was fortunate that Chris lined up a dinner with Barry and Leigh, the brilliant couple behind the new non-profit educational organization, Land Matters. The website at http://www.mylandmatters.org/ is your constantly expanding source of land related information, including: Library - A Library full of free maps, guides, books, tutorials and reference materials. Maps - Interactive maps for your area of interest. More being added every week. Articles - Factual articles written by those in the know. Information that you can rely on. Resources
  3. Howdy, Please see the following website http://apeoid.com/kmz-kml-padus/ for KMZ / KML overlays of public land for Google Earth. I have been using a paid subscription for years. This information looks to be accurate and well done. Thanks, Rick

I mean, how you could find something like that and then not be able to find it again. In my mind there would be no way I could forget how to find something like that.

I was driving through a gold bearing area near me and saw an area I wanted to come back to with a metal detector. You know how it is when you have got the bug; geology takes on a new meani
  5. Last fall I ordered the North Fork American River edition of the FootPrints mapping software produced by Miner Diggins at http://www.minerdiggins.com/ I am far from expert with the software, but my stock in trade is research and I immediately saw the value in this series. In theory it is information I could find on my own for "free" but my time is valuable. Any shortcuts I can take when getting the information I need to go prospecting I am more than willing to invest in. I just ordered the Middle Fork American River, Gold Basin, North Bradshaws, East Bradshaws, and Black Canyon editions, all f
  6. This looks interesting. An app for Android devices for tracking your detecting and recording finds. The possibilities for prospecting are really huge. Here's a post regarding the app. Link deleted since Findmall update broke all old links Here's a link to the Android Play Store for the app. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.trib.app.tectotraklite The IOS version is a Kickstarter Project and I went ahead and pledged $5 hoping he gets it done - cause I don't have an Android phone.
