  1. For those of you who might be interested the first annual Tonopah rock and antique bottle show is comming up on August 4th 5th and 6th.Those of you that are familiar with bottle shows know that they cover all of the bases and run the gamut as far as collectibles are concerned.It should be a great time for all and have something for everybody and could use the support of fellow collectors and enthusiast.
  2. For those members that don't get ICMJ's Prospecting and Mining Journal, it looks like ICMJ is planning a return of their Gold Show scheduled for the last weekend of next April. The location given is the Fair grounds in Nevada City, CA. I attended 3 of the earlier shows when it was held in Placerville, well worth the time even with the long drive.
  3. Seeing this post from yesterday reminded me there's a huge outdoor sporting equipment show in Nuremberg already started (today, 2 March 2023) and going through Sunday. Apparently metal detectors are a significant (for us anyway 😉) component. Hopefully we'll get more info on some of the hinted/promised soon-to-be releases. Anyone here going to attend?
  4. I will be at the Quartzite Gold Show selling books. I didn't want to say anything until now because I wanted to make sure I had the funds to get there when the time came. Getting this ounce of gold sold came just in time. Looking forward to meeting any of y'all there that is able to make it. I guess I will be giving a talk there as well. Feb 10-12.
  5. For decades the Gold Shows sponsored by the GPAA were the ultimate venue for persons interested in recreational gold mining. I had booths at a total of 136 Shows, sold lots of detectors, and made many friends, including many of you on this forum. Alas, the GPAA management has decided to discontinue the Shows. The end of an era...

  7. Garrett is going to be at Bass Pro Shop in Grapevine Tx. from 11 until 1 PM this Saturday 6 of Aug. They talking about a team but you can see it’s not any nugget team . I sent Garrett a message if they would have the Axiom I’d be there but I don’t believe I’ll hear back from them. Chuck

    Bone 29

    Hi all, Just wondering if any of you are attending BONE 29? I will be there Tuesday and part of Wed. for the natural hunts. I guess Brad from Green Mountain MD will be there. Love his channel. Should be a great time.
  9. The Quartzite Gold Show is February 11,12,13 and I will have a booth there selling my book. I will be in the section in the parking lot so I can camp out of my chuckwagon Taco and keep an eye on my rig at all times. If anyone is in the area, please stop by and say hello. It would be nice to meet anyone on here that is able to make it.
  10. Treasure show in Llano Texas in February 26 & 27 and its free to the public. Just maybe by then you can lay your hot little hands on one of the detectors that’s new to us . Chuck
  11. GPAA has the treasure shows lined up for 2022 . Hopefully they don’t get shot down but you can see below how they going to run . Chuck
  12. Here’s a look around Detectival Sept. 2021. This is an amazing location and I’m sure we are going to hear about some banner finds this year. btw: can’t tell Minelab is there can ya? Haha
  13. This Sunday at 2:30 PM PDT there will be a lecture. https://ucla.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJEqduyupj0vGd3S0_52FsbHTbPjYr0sZQUj
  14. The main detectors on display was Minelab, Garrett. Makro/Nokta and XP Deus. If you’re wondering about White’s I too was doing the same. One of the dealers always had a big line of White’s detectors but today it was all Minelab.. I may have missed it but I didn’t even a banner. Garrett at this show is always has a large display of their line of detectors. Makro/Nokta had a good showing of their detectors from more than one dealer. Two of their detectors was put up for a drawing tomorrow. I did see lots of old White’s. Garrett and Fisher from years past . Some of the White’s detectors I had used too but was history now. Minelab and Makro/Nokta have more going for them than some others . The sad part it shows in so many ways some may be falling bye the wayside. Chuck
  15. Does anyone know if the remaining gold Shows are being postponed due to this coronavirus stuff? I heard from Ray Mills that one of the shows was going to be postponed. I can't get ahold of anyone at the GPAA. Especially Kevin Highland.
  16. Spent a couple off hours looking at a bunch of gold and tools for prospecting.
  17. Was totally awesome. Nearly 2,000 attendees on Saturday, and they were in a buying mood. Maybe the current price of gold helped spur sales?. I totally sold out of Goldmaster 24k's by 2pm Saturday, and had to begin taking orders. It was great chatting with our esteemed colleague, Chris Ralph. I was plessed to see his dad looking so healthy. Also had a chance to spend some time with "Broken Arrow," you Southern California gold guys (and movie buffs) know whom I'm talking about. He's looking good. And Pete Pedersen was there, too, looking good for a 92 year old. Looking forward to seeing some of you at Phoenix. Drop by my booth, will also have GMX's available. HH Jim
  18. My thinking to have a really great gold show you need to be in gold country to start with. It’s a long drive for me from San Antonio to Phoenix but I’m going to do my best to make it. It’s just a more exciting time had there than others I’ve made . Chris do you think maybe you will be there and Steve too ? I was there once before and had the pleasure of meeting you both and hope to get that opportunity again. Chuck
  19. Recently the GPAA has had six shows per year, four in the US West in the Spring and two in the US East in Autumn. This year they are changing that pattern, with eleven shows all in the first five months of 2020. I haven't read their intentions but I'm sure Kevin Hoagland and crew will be explaining the strategy in their publications. I've gotta think it's good for everyone involved. I've only attended two so far but with 11 on the calendar I'll be disappointed if I can't find a way to make my third this year. Open to the public for a nominal fee ($5 ahead of time and $10 at the door).
  20. I get an email from the UCLA Meteorite Collection which is on the UCLA campus in Los Angeles. I've attended a number of their lectures in a small lecture room which is usually attended by less than 50 people. You have the ability to ask lots of questions and see the meteorites on display in the gallery. The November lecture and link to the website is here: https://meteorites.ucla.edu/events/ The January lecture is going to be of importance because they will be discussing one of the largest stony meteorites ever found. Here is the preview: Advance notice of the next lecture Title: "A coming out party for a large stony meteorite" Lecturers: Dr. Peter Utas, a physician meteorite collector, and Dr. Alan Rubin of UCLA When: 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, 26 January 2020 Large iron meteorites are common, big stones are rare. Our atmosphere presents a formidable barrier to large rocks, efficiently transforming boulders into pebbles. But a few survive the fiery plunge. Peter reviews the roster of these great intruders, with a short description of several, and introduces a rare survivor, NWA XXXX, the 15th largest surviving stone. Discovered five years ago, in Mali or Mauritania, this flight-marked 205-kilogram specimen was largely buried, the soil-line still clearly visible. Rubin describes the analysis and classification of chondritic stones; naked eye examination of hand specimens gives important clues, but quantitative techniques are needed to avoid being misled. Hand samples of chondrites will be available for examination by attendees. Admission Free and open to the public.
  21. Hello i was wondering if anyone here will be attending the show in chattanooga on july 27th and 28th?
  22. Dang, I was planning on getting a booth to demo the Sweep Jig. Can't find any mention of the Boise show on the 'net. Jim
  23. Anyone going? I’ll probably make it up there for a bit this weekend. My goal is to do all the panning at all the stations I can and get as much advice as possible from anyone who’ll give it out. ? Oh, and I’m also going to win all the door prizes. This will be my first GPAA event I’m attending - anything in particular I should make sure to see? -Julie
  24. The Las Vegas GPAA Gold and Treasure show was always the "big event" of the year for this organization, and something I looked forward too attending as well. Yeh I know there are show dates in other places but there's no place like Vegas! What's up with this organization anyways.......any idea? I haven't been a member in a long time.
  25. https://quartzsitegoldshowcom.wordpress.com/ This is a really good show put on every year in Quartzsite, Arizona, so if you’re in the area, check it out!
