    Gold from the caliche

    Way to go Chris. Digging through that caliche is a real chore.

  5. I agree! My personal experience is: I sold my 4000, bought a 4500 and a nugget finder evolution mono coil from AZO. That combination is lighter than a 7000 and performance in the field is almost as good.
  6. Interesting video, and very well done. Thank you for posting the link Jennifer.

  8. Congratulations! Your persistence sure paid off! That is a beautiful specimen.
  9. Sure beats the skunk! Nice specimen.
  10. GET OUT AND FIND SOMETHING! I’ll post a bunch of pictures and see if I can’t get something started. Here is crazy Bill in his AZO hat holding a 7+ ounce nugget. If he can find gold anyone can. Come on, Someone post a few goofy pictures.

    Early mining camp hunt

    That nickle looks great Chris. I have never found a US coin from the 1800's. I'd swap my next nugget for a find like that. ?
  12. My thanks also! I was being lazy and putting it off. It is done now, off to the post office in the morning. Certified and return receipt both.
  13. Wishes and prayers and fingers crossed. Most of all everyone safe!
  14. Hey there Chris, glad you and the family are home safe. Looks like Costa Rica was really a lot of fun. Thank you for the pictures.
