  1. Hi my name is Deven - new member here from Red Deer, Alberta. I'm into Prospecting/Relic Searching. Usually just when we are out camping, but I have made a couple trips to northern Ontario for some hard rock mining. I am into welding/fabrication etc. I built my own jaw crusher and rod mill. Currently in material collection stage of my wave table. I frequented a couple other forums over the past years. Looking to learn, and share whatever I can that will help the community.
  2. ๐Ÿ˜‡ Hi.... my name's Jennifer and some of you know me as "Feces Disturber".... but I promised Steve I'd tone it back a bit this time... You can find some of my previous posts under the user name "Guest" LOL..๐Ÿคฃ It's good to be back boyes n goyles... Jen
  3. Greetings! Last winter, I won a Barska Winbest Pro Edition in a church raffle. I wanted a metal detector when I was a kid, but Santa never came through. Since itโ€™s never too late to have a happy childhood, I looked forward to trying it out. This spring, my father was losing his battle with cancer. I needed something to get me out of the house and take my mind off the sad situation. So on May 13th I unboxed the detector, plugged in some old iPhone earbuds, and went detecting for the very first time in a local sports field. It was amazingly therapeutic! The weather was gorgeous and the process of learning to detect was a much-needed mental break. To make things even better, the very first target I dug was a penny! The rest of the hour I dug 9 pieces of trash. I figure the Detector Deities were watching over me that day. Had I found the trash first, I doubt I would have persevered long enough to find the penny. Iโ€™ve now been detecting 17 times in that park. I have never failed to find at least one coin. To date, I have found 8 quarters, 13 dimes, 6 nickels and 52 pennies. My father has since passed away, but I still find it a peaceful, relaxing pastime. A word about the Winbest. While I have nothing to compare it to, it does a fine job of detecting coins a few inches under turf. It is, however, very flimsy. The wires connected to the batteries, in particular, are just begging to be broken off. We will see which lasts longer: the detector or my enthusiasm for the hobby.
  4. I've long been a lurker here, and have learned a lot in the process (thanks to all for sharing your knowledge). And thanks to Steve for sharing his incredible wealth of knowledge. I live in southern NJ (close to the DE bay). Mostly I hunt old permissions - sites that date back 200+ years. For me it is more about the hunt than it is about the find. I like the unknown aspect of it - who lost it, how did it impact them, what was their life like, etc.. My user name is derived from a Louis L'Amour book - Tahts-a-dats-ago was a character in one of his books (I used to collect books by L'Amour). I mention that because people often ask where the moniker came from. My current machines: Makro multi Kruzer Nokta-Makro Anfibio (multi) Tesoro Compadre Garrett Apex XP ORX XP Deus Minelab Vanquish 440 (bought it for my wife) Best of luck to all
  5. Hello, just found this site and joined. Am just another somewhat humble metal detectin' pilgrim.
  6. Just checking in to say hello and explore. Cheers! -Tim
  7. We had a battle with Covid. We were very sick but we are well now with a few lingering side effects...Fatigue being the main one.
  8. new to the forum .. three years detecting .. still just a learner
  9. Hi folks, my name is Mario. I was encouraged by a member of a different MD site to also join this forum and announce that, as of June 2021, I have in my possession every remaining Tesoro part/accessory that was in the building. I will post in the classified when I become eligible to do so. I don't even own a metal detector, but I'm going to build one (or more) for myself. Thank you.
  10. Hi guys. New to this site but not new to chasing gold. Mostly detect for it these days. Name is Greg & I am in New Zealand. We have in the last couple of days gone into lockdown due to our first covid case in the community since february of this year. Has apparently come from across the ditch from the New South Wales outbreak in Australia. BUGGER. So locked down at home & cant go out for a detect. Beautiful day too. Look forward to "meeting" & hanging out with you all & see what you guys are finding & what gear you are using & what your thoughts are:) on it. Take care stay safe. Greg ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. My wife has had me building a deck and a couple of gates at the studio in Santa Clara, never built a deck before...kinda fun but been to damn hot the last couple of days. it's getting pretty close to done so I've got to head up to the mountains and do some hunting before she finds me another project.
  15. Hello everyone and from me, a new member of the forum new in the search for native gold with a metal detector. My first metal detector is Minelab EQUINOX 800 with 11-inch and 6-inch coil A little about me: My name is Veisal, I am 35 years old, I am from Bulgaria, a country located in Europe

  18. Hello to all.... After using a variety of detectors since the late 80's (BountyHunter BFO, RedBaron, IB1OO / Whites 4900d to name a few) I moved up to a Whites MXT E-trac in 2002 from Rick at Desert Outfitters hoping to do a little nugget shooting... sadly life happened and I haven't used any of them for the last decade or so. I now have more free time for metal detecting and look forward to some nugget and meteorite hunting. It's nice to learn the MXT is still a contender. Before purchasing I called Jimmy Sierra for advice. He insisted it needed the 6x10 Eclipse DD and sent a free coupon. I also have the 5.3 eclipse in addition to the stock 9.50 coil, each on their own stems. I found this forum as a link on the Nugget Shooter forum while looking for information on my MXT. The above intro is posted there as well. Thanks to all. .....OneAcre
  19. Hello, I think I am supposed to share a bit about myself so you all know who you're talking to. I live in Southwest Washington and became a treasure hunter at a very young age, digging old outhouses and wells for bottles when I was a preteen, more than four decades ago. I recently took up treasure hunting on a trip to Alaska when I decided to buy a gold pan and see what I could find. That was about 5 years ago, and I have since gold prospected many states and purchased a gold monster 1000 a couple years ago which I've used successfully most recently in Puerto Rico. Several months ago My wife surprised me with my first general use metal detector, a Garrett 300, and last month I purchased an Equinox 800. I'm quite new to metal detecting and have a lot to learn. I've attached a few pictures of recent finds. I started a little YouTube channel to document my activity, and it's listed under golden pennies prospecting. Looking forward to connecting with all of you. Thanks for having me in the forum! Troy

    Hi all. Long time listner, first time poster. Rather than a rambling introduction I have a Question. It appears I am in the market for a new detector. I have an original Fisher Gold Bug in an honest "new condition", I love it and never thought I would part with it but.... do you think it would be an easy sell, or perhaps none wants these old antiques? What would be a fair price? Only reason for me to sell it would be to fund a Gold Bug DP....if I go that route, may go for the Minelab Vanquish 540 and keep the GB.....or maybe couple other detectors I'm mulling over. Said another way, make me an offer if interested.
  21. Hi Folks Just a quick hello to everyone on the forum. Itโ€™s good to be a part of your community. Iโ€™m another bloke from downunder that struggles with gold fever. I live on the south coast of New South Wales and try to get out for a play in the bush at least a couple of times every week. My toys include a 7, 6 and 2300. Hope to be able to learn from some of you wizards and contribute where ever I can. cheers Les
  22. Hello folks. A few days ago we (the wife, the dog and me) vacationed and my wife took some images. Hope you all can enjoy some days off this year to a place you can relax. All the Best to you all and stay safe and healthy.
  23. Good Day All, Have a Great Father's Day!๐Ÿ†๐Ÿป The only day of the year that we get a legitimate grief free day to detect! Well, some of us anyway!!๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฃ ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ“ฟ๐Ÿ€ ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
  24. Howdy Gents, First i wanna thank Steve,for birthin this baby,And all the rest of ya that have contributed info,as a fng with new found burnin fever to find Things,Which seems the Easy part,as ive got more questions now than when i started๐Ÿ˜ i had no hope of ever stumbling onto such a site as this. Ive been diggin only since Plandemic "Lockdowns" began. Im pretty sure this site is my best find yet๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ i started readin about 4.30 pm yest and finally got around to creating an account about 3.30am this morn. I hadnt hardly clicked verification email an started coffee when i lost internet. Damdest thing is im sure i learned more in those few hours then i couldve Ever learned on my own But,my initial goal was to figure out which detector was gonna give me biggest bang for buck,so what i learned,was as usual,what i Assumed was All wrong๐Ÿ˜ ive literally went from garret at max thru amfibio an nox 600 an back an forth thru the at pro an gold an considering Whites,when i stumbled onto F5 an that was dam near it,Then i saw the thread about Bounty Hunter 3300 for 99 bucks and Steve and several others musings on that subject. I was then considering just gitn a F5 with smaller coil an gitn another 4"coil for this here Canslaw poptop killer i already have and just learnin how to make it run or Bust๐Ÿ˜ im a greenhorn but i think now,but i digress๐Ÿคฃ that it would mebbe behoove me to mebbe just coupla more buttons or knobs to play with๐Ÿค” Dammedifiknow. Ok lifes short and ive got lots of mistakes yet to make so, Im gonna just shutup and listen as ive dug buckets of junk and few ihp,s few silvers an 1 buffalo bunches of brass an few pocketknives. Probably enuff half rotted stinkin lincolns to buy that 99 buck bounty hounter. My problem and naggin fear is Im missin and or leavin stuff because of such trashy areas. I do appreciate greatly Any knowledge yall care to share,i really would like a lil upgrade but i want to know how to use the things. Im very aware a 5grand machine same with rifle isnt gonna make Meat where there is none. I do think from amount of junk and age of some of it,theres more to b had? Im Brian and im situated in southern Mississippi not far from coast. Thanks,๐Ÿ˜ I Think,once again for mebbe feeding a new addiction. Fair winds Following seas my brothers from other mothers. Lets see where this adventure leads.โœŒ
  25. Hi Goldpanner Here. I created the UKGPA as firstly a forum where people could discuss Panning and also to meet up (We did have 2 great trips to France) and also to try and put forward a solid basis for discussion with the Authorities who wanted to limit or even ban panning. Due to ill Health I had to back away from the Forum and did indeed pass it over to Julie and Dave and they did a great job, untill certain people from other forums and those against panning etc decided to create havoc on it. Julie and Dave then simply shut it down as they were unable to control the scumbags. It was a quite active group with panning trips organised in the UK and also France and also a place where panners could get decent unbiased info and also by decent cheap equipment (including my Supersluice) So, after some serious health problems, including more recently two bouts of Covid I am once agin up on two legs and looking forwards to returning to Panning In France and Spain in 2022. If anyone wants to contact me I have a facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/gold.panner.1650/ and would be happy to chat with anyone, maybe even here. So good luck and good health to everyone detecting and panning
