  1. Well, i just got back from a short hunt detecting a park! Funny thing is, i only got to detect for around 20 minutes, and had just about finished up on the second of two clad and penny coin spills, when a young man (late 20's-early 30's) approached me, and asked if i had found a set of keys while out! I told him i had just started, and asked him a few questions about what, when, and where they were lost! He told me his name; (his first name was the same as my daughter's) and he took down my number to swap info! I said i would keep an eye out; he thanked me, and walked to his car! After
  2. HELENA — The Prospector Shop in Helena is asking for the community to help to find some stolen gold nuggets. https://www.ktvh.com/news/helena-prospectors-shop-asking-for-help-finding-5-figures-worth-of-gold-nuggets
  3. Caught and killed. Mohave County sheriff just informed me this guy was responsible for the burglarly at my place in Gold Basin, he got in a shootout with a neighbor on another burglary. According to the deputy I just spoke with apparantly he was involved in 35+ burlaries and there in the Dolan/Gold Basin area at least 3 or 4 more people/safehouses involved in the ring as well. They recovered so much stolen stuff it filled a large warehouse, and they still have more. A prospector came up to my land this winter and told me their buddy just had their drywasher stolen in the 30 minutes they w
  4. Sorry for the off topic post, I just wanted to get this out there quickly and please delete if this shouldn't be here. I had a ton of stuff stolen in Arizona, not sure what exactly yet as I have to drive down now to find out. They abandoned my RV on the road since I sabotaged the wheels to prevent theft (after they dragged it 1000ft ruining my axles and drums), but took everything inside, and took a 40ft Conex worth of tools and gold prospecting equipment. So much stuff I'm not even sure what all was in it until I can do a full inventory. So, if anyone sees someone in NW Arizona trying to
  5. For those not following VaNursePaul's Facebook page we had a major theft at my house this morning. Paul had his travel trailer parked in my driveway and our detectors in his Toyota Sequoia parked next to the trailer. Sometime in the wee hours someone stole the Toyota parked right next to the trailer where Paul was sleeping. While we were making a police report they found the Toyota a mile away abandoned, no detectors. The homeowners policy only covers property stolen from my vehicle, not a visitor's vehicle. Paul is checking his renters policy, we're not too confident that the insurance c
  6. Posting this here just in case. Yes, it was old, just like me. It even took on some of my old age idiosyncrasies; it was heavy when full, started hard in the morning, ran intermittently depending on mood, took a lot of tinkering to get it to perform properly, created a lot of dust and its exhaust smelled bad. But it was a trusty old friend that was always there in a pinch. It’s ability to draw material and gold upward out of a crack was second to no other method. You may have guessed by now that I am talking about my trusty gas powered vacuum. It is the old original Vac Pack.
  7. I was reading an Aussie forum and was shocked to read the following, hits home pretty hard. Anyone have any ideas how to protect your gear when out swinging? Poor choice led to bad luck. IDAufinder Today at 6:02 am I haven't posted for quite some time but have been reading some very interesting posts so I thought I would share an ugly one. I had hoped to share some good news along with some pics of the finds I should have by now but I got bit by the nasty thief bug!! I finally had everything I needed to retire to the gold fields of the western U.S. an
  8. Heres another aspect to be aware of, at ten grand a pop these detectors are going to be tempting bait for thieves so best keep them locked up and not left in trucks outside at night. i wouldn't be surprised at someone being robbed at gun point of their gpz, especially in the remote desert areas some of you folks go to...
