  2. Hello all! I can not seem to find a copy to purchase of the 8th Edition of Jim Straight's Follow the Drywashers Vol 3. The Nuggetshooters Bible. I have the 6th Edition and I would like to see what has been updated and added since. I have heard there are over 40 new pages of material! The other book that I have been wanting to read is Larry Sallee's The Complete Unabridged Zip Zip! I just can not afford the $200 price tag on this book nor do any libraries have it. I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to let me borrow their copies. I would only need it for a couple weeks. I would pay for shipping both ways (PayPal friends), I could even put a deposit down or something. Would anyone be willing to give a hand? Thank you!

    Freshly dug GPZ nug!

    Matt, I think after he cleaned it up, the final weight was about 14.5-grams. I always round up when it comes to nuggets

    Freshly dug GPZ nug!

    Sweet nugget and congrats.
  7. Yes that's a nice reward for digging a two foot hole .
  8. So, a friend of mine sends me this photo in a text. He is out swinging his GPZ 7000 (with 14” coil) when he gets one of those sweet, low mellow signals that we are all on the hunt for. He digs down nearly two feet and breaks through a compacted gravel & rock layer that probably hasn’t seen daylight for many millions of years. And there waiting for him at the bottom was this beautiful half-ouncer!!! What’s even better, this was only the second target he dug that day! Not a bad way to kick off a morning. A big congratulations to this fellow. He and his partner are some of the best operators I know, and it’s a rare day when they get skunked. Thanks again for letting me share the photo.
  9. Great find. Tasty honey quartz.

    Some incredible stuff!

    Very cool finds.
  17. I have been getting some great photos lately from my customers. Check out this incredible handful of gold that was found not long ago by a customer with his Minelab. I have seen thousands of nuggets over the years, but I have to say that his “foil” nugget is by far one of the coolest. It almost looks fake, but he assured me that this is exactly how it came out of the ground. I have seen a few similar from Nevada, but nothing of this size. This would be a piece any collector would love to have. What an incredible find!!! I really appreciate all the wonderful photos, thank you so much for letting me share with everyone here.

    Chris, You might want to consider adding one of those "I'm not a robot" tests to your sign up (not sign-in) process. One of those that makes you pick the street signs or business building etc. The robots haven't figured those out yet and that will keep them out. Their a small pain for humans to do but sure keep non-humans out (so far). Mike

    Spam Attack

    Thanks Chris, I tried to get the message out that the attack was happening. I guess there will be a few of us that have many hundreds of Email from the forum notification system to delete. Glad you have got on top of them.

    GPZ7000 ... For Sale $6000

    Don't blame you Mike, my 7000 is in the closet and has been for weeks since replacing it with a 5000 and Evo coil.... so much more enjoyable to swing. Thanks for trying though Dakota.
  22. I wanted to say thanks to the members that reached out to let me know the forum had been invaded by spam. I was away from a computer this weekend and had no idea. When I logged on this morning I couldn't believe they managed to get up page after page of garbage. This time it really was Russian bots!!! ? I banned the accounts and believe I got all the spam deleted. Anyway, hopefully this won't happen again for a very long while. Thanks again you guys for keeping an eye on it.

    GPZ7000 ... For Sale $6000

    Got a harness for the detector ... my big problem is I don't like being tethered to a harness ... Up until this Fall I have been swinging the 7000 without 'benefit' of harness and bungee. At almost 70 years old now the shoulder doesn't want to do it for more than about 3 hours now ... I like to hunt 5-6 hours at a time! Just a heavy machine ... BUT a great gold getter!
