  1. Feeling bored in the cold. Anyone know when Aussie Gold Hunters season 7 starts??
  2. . . . where two guys wandered around the USA detecting relics and coins? They used Garrett's AT detectors I think back. They would locate/research historical homes and other locations of interest, then ask for permission to hunt. There was a different story every week I think. I always thought that historic wagon train trails would cough-up great finds. I would assume one could travel the same pathway, either by road or off-round, with proper research and planning. I would like watch those shows again. Billy
  3. This is for real so do not be afraid of tossing your hat in the ring. Raw TV has been involved in lots of stuff, including the original Gold Rush series. Pass it along to anyone who may be interested. Alan, you listening?
  4. So last week I'm watching Freddy Dodge's Gold Mining show and he calls his friend, a "nugget detecting Expert" to come check out a claim to see if there is any large gold to be found. She takes out her Garrett Apex and proceeds to find close to a 1/4 oz nugget. That's it, I'm selling all my other detectors and getting an Apex.🤣
  5. I'm starting a new thread (for an obvious reason -- change of topic), triggered by the following post: My question is specifically about this spinoff/version of the show. It's evolved into two related, semi-cooperative crews dredging McKinley Creek near the Northern end of the Alaska Panhandle. If somebody wants to bring up Todd Hoffman (oops, I just did), etc., well that's not what I'm hoping to read about. But it's a free world. I'm hoping some experienced dredgers will objectively critique.
  6. Join three groups of treasure hunters, armed with modern technology and newly uncovered clues, as they set out to find the lost treasure of notorious Prohibition-era gangster Dutch Schultz and solve an 85-year-old mystery. https://www.kcet.org/shows/secrets-of-the-dead/episodes/gangsters-gold?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=kcet m, ,
  7. https://www.pbs.org/video/gangsters-gold-pa78zu/ As part of their ongoing series (18th season?!) titled "Secrets of the Dead", PBS just released an episode on the (supposed) Dutch Schultz treasure. You can watch online (link above). In a nutshell, Schultz was a Prohibition and early Great Depression Era mobster/gangster in New York (city and upstate) who met his demise in 1935 when he bucked the syndicate and set out to assassinate a powerful federal government prosecutor -- Thomas Dewey (same guy who 'defeated', well almost, Harry Truman in the 1948 presidential election). Supposedly Schultz had hidden (possibly buried) a steel strongbox with several million $ (1935 dollars...) in diamonds, gold coins, paper currency, and WWI US government bonds. As is typical with PBS, the historical components of the show are well done. As far as the treasure search (and searchers)..., well, at least they don't keep talking about a curse. I'll call them 'optimistic' and leave it at that. (As we all know, treasure hunting isn't the proper activity of pessimists. ) Basically three pairs of treasure hunters are featured along with a couple freelance researchers (one of whom joins one of the teams near the end of the show). All teams have metal detectors. Also used is Ground Penetrating Radar; fortunately no hocus pocus snake oil LRL's -- take that Gary Drayton. I was able to recognize some -- Minelab Equinox, Garrett Treasure Hound (2 box), Garrett AT (one of the VLF models), White's Coinmaster or Treasuremaster. Two of the teams (boyfriend-girlfriend and father-daughter) admit to being amateurs and one team (two guys ~mid 40's?) call themselves professionals. Those familiar with treasure hunters in the NE USA may recognize the so-called pros, or not. (Let's just say I wasn't super impressed with their professionalism, but they are a lot better than those two brothers -- supposed professional miners -- from Arizona who had a show last year on cable looking for a different major lost treasure every week.) Spoiler alert: a find is made which would excite most of us, but whether or not it has anything to do with Schultz is just wishful speculation at this point. Bottom line, IMO, is that this is more/less typical of these kinds of shows. If you like them you'll like this and if you're a disser, well here's more ammo for you. Oh, and sorry to disapoint Simon, but the find was made with a Garrett.
  8. Hello all, The crew is off to a good start! Alot of new people and tech! Gary Drayton has a new and expensive toy to play with! I hope they find "it" this season!👍👍
  9. I watch a lot of adventure shows on cable TV and this past Sunday evening Discovery Channel had a 2 hour long one titled "Everest's Greatest Mystery". To set the background for this post, in 1924 two British climbers (one quite experienced -- George Mallory, and a novice climber -- Andrew Irvine) disappeared from the view of others (below) within a few hundred meters of the summit, never to be heard from again. It took 29 years until Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay accomplished and documented the supposed first human conquest of the summit, but questions remained. Did Mallory and Irvine actually reach the summit and succumb in their descent? In 1999 an expedition went to find Irvine, who carried the camera for the 1924 attempt, to hopefully determine if his photos would show that they reached the top. That expedition ironically failed to find Irvine's body, but Mallory's instead. Four experienced (each with multiple Everest trips) climbers from the USA were filmed in a spring 2019 expedition for this program. Their goal once again was to find Irvine and his camera. The weather in 2019 was particularly bad (12 climbers perished) and they spent over a month at base camp (17,000 ft = 5200 m) or above. Their ultimate trip lasted 3 consecutive days above 27,000 ft (8200 m), apparently shattering a record for most time consecutively at or above that altitude on Everest. Although they carried supplemental oxygen, for most of that time they had to conserve it and breathe the 33% (relative to sea level) dense air. At night the temperatures dipped to -20 F (-29 C) and although I don't recall the daytime temps I doubt they were much above 0 F (-18 C). Those are air temps, not windchills. (BTW, their high camps were set up by local guides who departed as soon as their task was complete.) I noticed a metal detector in the backpack of one of the expedition members, and he carried it all three days they searched near the summit. That's pretty amazing when you consider the conditions: 1) With so little oxygen, weight is critical. Even carrying an extra pound matters a lot; 2) At these temperatures I'm surprised a metal detector will even function; 3) The setup and operation had to be simple and any searching looking for just metal signal or not. The brain doesn't work well with low oxygen. As it turns out I never saw the detector being used, and I doubt it was. The climbers wore ice crampons but much of the terrain was windblown and thus rocky, not icy. Movement had to be delicate and anything held/carried in hand made it that much more dangerous. Also, without snow/ice cover there was nowhere for metal to hide. But that didn't stop the climber with the detector to bring it along every one of the three days they searched. He had to have considered it quite important. Oh, you may be wondering which detector he had with him: Garrett AT/Pro.
  10. Here is a good article in the Bendigo Advisor about two of the Aussie Gold Hunters on the show. https://www.bendigoadvertiser.com.au/story/6879688/bendigo-prospectors-unearth-two-gold-nuggets-on-television-show/ The Poseidon Crew joined the main cast of Aussie Gold Hunters this year. "It took a bit of convincing to be part of the show," Mr Shannon said. "Most prospectors don't generally like to divulge their finds freely, for obvious reasons. "What convinced me was to try help raise profile of prospecting in Victoria. We're in a bit of a struggle with regulations and in the industry is gradually being reduced. Hopefully being a part of show, showcases Victoria and what we can produce in terms of gold finds."
  11. I noticed last Night`s episode of Aussie Gold Hunters, are using the new Z search Coil on the GPZ 7000. Looks like it works well, if you can believe what you see, cheers sturt
  12. Friday night I stayed up until 11 PM to watch the second episode of Aussie Gold Hunters. I had to watch it with mostly volume off because of others sleeping but I'm glad I saw it. I had seen an ad during Parker's show that it was going to be on but I didn't see the first episode. It has been a rather hard show to track down but now I've found a link. https://www.discovery.com/shows/aussie-gold-hunters-2015 When I put this link up it says 2015! I thought it looked old. Here is a teaser for the new show: I guess I'll need to have Netflix, YouTube premium to see the new show.
  13. The famous Meteorite Men are together again! A new short film series starring Steve Arnold and produced by Geoffrey Notkin. Meet expert meteorite hunter Steve Arnold, one of the stars of TV's multi-award-winning Discovery Science series "Meteorite Men." In this exclusive YouTube series, Steve teaches you how to find fallen space rocks, and what equipment you will need out there in the field. Learn more by visiting Steve's official website: https://www.fireballsteve.com
  14. Parker has been put on to some Australian gold. They are great looking nuggets! We'll have to wait to see how he did it. https://www.tvshowsace.com/2019/11/04/gold-rush-parkers-trail-season-4-filming-in-australia/
  15. I just asked if it was going to play in the states. I think I know the answer. This season the hunt is bigger than ever with 20 episodes and seven teams of gold hunters - the largest number in the show’s history – embarking on the ultimate treasure quest across the country. These gold hungry crews are driven by the record-breaking price of Australian gold, the increasing number of nuggets being found lying very close to the surface and the unwavering belief that they too could strike it rich and land a monster nugget. https://tvblackbox.com.au/programs/2020/3/26/airdate-aussie-gold-hunters-returns-for-its-biggest-season-yet
  16. The local public TV station KCET has put together a series about gold in the Mojave Desert. I think there are only 3 parts and I have not watched the episodes yet but I have skimmed the online portions and they are fantastic. I've been to many of the places depicted and now I'll know a lot more about them when I make time to read and watch this history of my gold hunting areas. https://www.kcet.org/shows/artbound/desert-gold-part-i https://www.kcet.org/shows/artbound/desert-gold-part-ii https://www.kcet.org/shows/artbound/desert-gold-part-iii
  17. The TV just said Bering Sea Gold coming in September 17th if I heard correct on the date . I look to see what day that landed on and shows Tuesday. That can’t be correct because it’s always on Friday. Get back later when are If I hear it again. Chuck
  18. While season 1 is on Netflix here in America, they've yet to upload season 2..... much more enjoyable show (much more detector work) than the drama they show on our American versions. The first episode of season 2 can be found here:
  19. Editors Note: Split from Vanquish Thread Very true Reg, very few 'young'uns' are having a go....but a certain TV show is helping to a small degree I suspect. But from what Ive seen, the current 'instant gratification' generation doesnt have the patience or fortitude to spend time in the bush for more than half an hour...
  20. This season Aussie Gold Hunters hits a big one. If you don't want to know what that means then don't follow this link or read this thread! https://tvblackbox.com.au/page/2019/4/2/airdate-aussie-gold-hunters-strike-it-big-in-new-season
  21. Wednesday, November 14, 2018 - 10:15 A+E Networks® UK today announced the commission of a brand new series, River Hunters, from Hello Halo Productions for flagship channel HISTORY®. The 8x60’ series pairs US YouTube sensation Beau Ouimette, a river detectorist with over 30 years’ experience, with presenter and keen swimmer Rick Edwards, as they search the UK’s waterways for archaeological finds. River Hunters will see Rick and river-searching expert Beau, visit some of the most historically significant sites across Britain: covering iconic events and battles including Roman Briton, the Wars of the Roses, the Reformation and the English Civil War. Their searches of these unexplored rivers and waterways unearth treasures from the past which reveal how our various ancestors used to live. As the artefacts surface from under layers of silt and rocks, the duo will meet with local archaeologists and historians to unearth the stories and people behind the finds. Spanning each river’s layered past, the new series will offer a fresh perspective and even redefine our history as we know it. Using state-of-the-art technology, archive maps and contemporaneous accounts from the period, Beau and Rick perform the first underwater archeological digs in some of the most exciting and iconic historical sites in Britain, often in dangerous and fast-flowing water. River Hunters was commissioned by Dan Korn, VP of Programming for A+E Networks UK. Diana Carter, Commissioning Editor for A+E Networks UK, will executive produce the series for HISTORY. Dan Korn said: By delving into Britain’s unexplored waterways, this series offers a unique glimpse into the passages of history which shaped our Island Nation and the ways of life of the various invaders and occupiers down the centuries. Some of the artefacts are truly breathtaking and shed new light on the richness of British history, and Beau and Rick’s blossoming partnership over the course of the series is a delight to behold. Rick Edwards commented: I’m delighted that we’re able to put to bed the idea that it's just shopping trolleys and old bikes in the UK's rivers - we found some truly extraordinary artefacts, bringing whole new perspectives to the stories from our rich past. I also got very cold. Wendy Rattray, Managing Director of Hello Halo, developed the series with Head of Development Natalie Hill, who is also Executive Producer, with Julie Grant as Series Producer. Natalie Hill said: With rivers largely unexplored in the UK, but integral to our rich past, this is a unique opportunity to find treasures long forgotten and untouched – from discarded and lost items, to offerings to gods - each river will tell a tale never seen before. The new series will air on HISTORY in the UK in 2019. HISTORY is available on Sky, Virgin, BT and TalkTalk.
