  1. Hey everyone, just putting out an update on my book I'm writing on gold detecting. The title will be "The Nugget Shooters Field Guide". I am half way through the last chapter. There are 11 chapters with over 205 pages completed already and over 26,000 words with over 160 photos. Many of the photos will have color coded arrows, lines and circles denoting key points of interest which you can apply to your given area. This book will have info that can be applied anywhere in the world. Not just the U.S.. There are photos of California, Idaho, Montana, Arizona and Australia. Geology, tips, stategies, clues to look for, recognizing prime areas to detect that you may not have thought of, plus much more to help you find more gold, consistantly as well as info on hydro-shocking your gold/quartz specimens and cleaning your gold with acid. There will be info on an applied formula that I invented to find the earliest stages of a stream system to help you find new ground that can and most likely will have nuggets along gold bearing streams or rivers. This system or theory, called the "Townes Theory", has been confirmed to work by three geologists with The Idaho Geological Society and Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology. They each asked how I came up with this and I told them it just came to me one day while I was thinking heavily about former stages of streams. This book has info that I have learned and applied since 1980 when I first started detecting for gold. It is fully up to date. In just a couple weeks or less it will be sent to the proof reader and then to be put in final appealing book layout and cover designed. When this is complete it will be sent off to South korea to be printed as a 6x9 paperback book. There will also be info in book supplied by Chris Gholson of Arizona Outback, Nuggetfinder Coils, both are already input into the book and hopefully Rob Allison of Rob's Detectors. I will keep you all informed when it is back from the printer.
  2. Steve has listed many valuable USGS books, publications and other items for you to obtain or find in a library so you can see where gold was found..This makes decisions so much easier about areas you might be interested in.. One bit of advice that I learned from these publications and I have had most of them for years for I studied the ones I was interested in carefully ... I soon realized these old time geologists that traveled to these sites many times on horseback is this, they were very thorough in their investigations... The language they used to describe what they saw made me realize this was the info I needed to successfully use a Detector in that area.. These words that you are looking for are Coarse, Shotty, Rough, Nuggety Heavy Etc..These are areas that contain gold that can easily be found by a persistent hunter.. Good Luck, Good Hunting and Never give up.....
  3. I was reading a news story today and was shocked at what they use for Chaff. Small bits of aluminum foil are sprayed out over a large area to confuse radar. The Australian military shot out a massive amount of chaff over Sydney to hide a training exercise from foreign Radar. I would be greatly annoyed if chaff was deployed over any area where I detect. If you checked the weather radars for Sydney yesterday you could have been forgiven for expecting a patch of heavy rain just north of the city. But if you poked your head out the window, it was nothing but blue skies. All that action on the radar picture above is chaff, Sydney had clear skies on the day of the exercise. What appeared to be an ominous storm cloud rolling across the weather radar was actually a military aircraft tactic used to hide activity and confuse the enemy. Known as chaff, it’s a radar countermeasure in which aircraft or other military targets spread a cloud of small, thin pieces of aluminium, metallised glass fibre or plastic. The radar-jamming material either appears as a cluster of targets on radar screens or overwhelms the screen with hundreds of returns, or “false echoes”. https://www.news.com.au/technology/innovation/military/it-looks-like-rain-but-its-actually-secret-military-exercises/news-story/0bd86fdc0b62ded8c5a32d04d96d78eb And you think canslaw is bad! 🙂
