    Freshly Dug GPZ Gold

    By the way.......here is a picture of my prospecting partner, Mike "yahoo" Garrard with just another "crumb". Does 20" qualify as deep or is that still shallow? Good hunting to all.

    Freshly Dug GPZ Gold

    Thank you, thank you! Yes please keep your 3000 and your slurs for your self.
  4. A big THANK YOU to Mike Furness for hosting the informal Gold Basin outing. We didn't have a large turnout, but we had a great time. Good food, (SUPER CHILI MIKE!) and good company in a beautiful area. The weather cooperated by turning cool Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Walt was the big winner of the gold finding tournament with first place in all three divisions - first nugget, largest nugget and most nuggets. Discussions with the professionals, Mike and Walt, provided us with an opportunity to pick up some valuable prospecting and detecting tips. Thanks again Mike.
  5. Will miss you Chris. We will do our best to find a couple of nuggets and post pictures of for you.
  6. Interesting information! I too am surprised at the number of 7000's. Better start saving my $ or sell some au. Thank you Steve.
  7. OK Mike.............I WILL CHIME IN Hey Chris, Please come on over for a couple of days. We would like to see you. Bring some extra pairs of Snake Guardz with you. With the Mojave Greens out you might sell a pair and save a life. If the obligations are business put it off. If the obligations are family family comes first! Hope to see you, Dick.
  8. Thanks for the pictures Walt. I agree with you about the greens. Apparently they are really out this year. Three of the Mohave Greens have been picked up right here in Boulder City within the last month or so. I haven't seen one in Gold Basin this year and don't want to. Wear those snake guardz and keep your eyes open wide!

    Saying Goodbye

    Very sorry to hear that Chris. We know what your family is going through.Give Maddy extra hugs and love.
  15. I find .44 cal Henry rim fires on one of my claims. They have the double firing pin marks. More reliable ignition on the old rim fires. Thx again
  16. Great post, thank you very much. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun.
  17. Hey Doc, I found a piece that looks like your mystery stuff but never tried to soak it. Will you post what ever you figure out please? Thanks, Dick.
  18. Thanks for your patience Doc, Fred, Chris, Mike, Adam and all the other rational people that post here. Sharing information both positive and negative is a good thing and I have learned a lot from the forum. I deleted a kyles name from my rant just to try and be polite but it backfired. What the heck...........sorry kyle here is what I wanted to post. WOW GUYS - Dont you think it's about time (for kyle) to quit whining about this and move on? Thanks again for your patience guys, Dick.
  19. WOW GUYS - Dont you think it's about time to quit whining about this and move on? My 2006 GPX4000 is pretty darn old and has found me a whole bunch of nuggets. A little while ago it started getting hard to ground balance. I called Minelab, talked to a tech and he said to send it in. Guess what.............Minelab put in a new circuit board (which was in stock) and I had it back right away, working great. Now if they had said sorry no parts, I would have complained some then moved on. I would have called Chris at Arizona Outback and bought a new Minelab. Please, if you hate Minelab go buy a Walmart detector then try to find nuggets with it! Or quit detecting altogether and just go to http.//www.ihateminelab.org every day and post your complaints there. REALLY SORRY for the rant but I get SO tired of the bashing. Let's get positive, cool weather is around the corner. Lets go get some nuggets.
  20. OK I will be there Lord willing and the creek don't rise. Will bring food & booze. Mike Garrard said he would be there too.
  21. One of us is right. Wanna bet a dollar? 8-)
  22. I don't think he gold look right for GB.
  23. I promise we will leave some nuggets for you. :-) :-)
