  1. Hi Everyone, I have been reading posts on these forums for quite awhile without posting, while looking for info on gold prospecting and metal detecting in general. This website has been a great resource even for a experienced prospector and detectorist like myself. I am looking forward future exchanges with all of the very interesting folks that contribute here. Best, Michael
  2. I just wanted to give a quick thank you to all of you who've welcomed me back this time after my departure a few years back.... it's been great to be back and I'm so happy to see how warm and accepting you've all been, granted half the members may have me on "user ignore" so don't even know I'm back.. LOL.. but thank you again and Steve, thank you for keeping such a tight ship and for welcoming me back so graciously and defending me from those who weren't keen. PS: I'm doing my best to stay non political and on topic, my dog's had to thwap me in the back of the head a couple times but I'm learning.... LOL You're all a great family, dysfunctional family at times yes (it's why I luv you all), but family it is. πŸ™‚ Jen
  3. Hi everyone, Avid reader from France of this forum, which I consider to be the "best" in the world. I am happy to be part of this community. Passionate since childhood by detection, I mainly detect in fields and woods family (I am the son of farmer) I had the chance to try and have a lot of detectors. My favorite is the Sovereign which I find unbeatable in discrimination between aluminum and gold. Sorry if my English is approximate . Thanks.
  4. Hi There everyone. May have been a member many years ago but fade in and out of metal detecting but recently back at it. Looks like this site is chock full of informative folks and sure I'll have some questions. Have one question right off the bat regarding whether or not there's a printing tool for being able to print a particular thread I'm very interested in. If so I'm not seeing it. Or a way to save a particular thread? Thanks!!
  5. I've been prospecting with my shovel and high banker for many years, though I grew tired of hauling all that heavy gear around. Always wanted a metal detector and now I have one. Gerry has helped to outfit me with one of those GPZ 7000 rigs. I now live in Bozeman Montana, surrounded by some amazing geology, history and beautiful mountains. My objective is to get out and into the mountains, away from the crowds. Currently researching the local mountains as I have found lots of quartz just off to the side of the trails, now I can go back and see of there is anything hidden within the dirt. I look forward to the adventures!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. πŸ˜‡ 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..🀣 It's good to be back boyes n goyles... Jen
  9. 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 it’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. I’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.
  10. 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
  11. Hello, just found this site and joined. Am just another somewhat humble metal detectin' pilgrim.
  12. Just checking in to say hello and explore. Cheers! -Tim
  13. new to the forum .. three years detecting .. still just a learner
  14. 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.
  15. 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 πŸ™‚
  16. How ya doing y’all I’m from Ky and it’s simple ( I think I know where this is going to go but I’ll say it ) I’m looking for the best scrap GOLD detector for hunting for jewelry lost around old lake beaches and parks.

  17. I missed my daily DP Equinox fix. πŸ˜‰
  18. πŸ˜„ Didn't know where to post this but I'm finally able to log on here. I thought you guys banned me πŸ™ Don't know what happened, but glad it's back up for me. Thanks to whomever got the forum back up. πŸ‘ I really missed this place.
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. Hello from Cali! Im happy to be here and look forward to having many good conversations about metal detectors and treasure hunting πŸ˜ƒ
  22. Yup. 13 yr old! I started when I was 12, and I live in San Jose, Ca, but I am right now in Korea (with my Metal detector, of course.) Thank you in advanced for the welcomes! πŸ™‚ (my detectors are in my gear-used) Josh
  23. 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
  24. 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.
