  1. I'm going to say agree with mike on the price range $1100 to $1300. Perhaps like low and slow said, the sources of new gold are getting harder to find, but I think demand for gold jewelry will go down as the four other precious metals (Platinum, palladium, iridium, and rhodium) become more popular in jewelry production. I've seen a bunch of wedding rings with the more recently married couples that are not made of gold, but other metals. Many jewelry companies are launching lines of those other than gold jewelry. I really also believe people are not investing in precious metals for times of trouble, but are switching to Bit Coin and other crypto currency or block exchange or whatever you call it. Although the dollar may be losing some headway in reserves, the price of gold is not really tied to the dollar, but an overall value. Traditionally, an ounce of gold could buy you a set of nice clothes and a really fun weekend, no matter when it was, and I believe it will hold the value the same way. Stock market is not really reacting to the tariff war, more like it realizes that there is trouble now but after both countries bluster and show their feathers, then they will come to some sort of agreement, almost as if the stock market sees this in the future.
  2. As much as I'd like to see him receive the bill, if he's using a carabiner that breaks and no back up and repelling with cowboy boots, I really doubt he could afford to pay for either the rescue or the hospital bill. If he was airlifted out, the helo ride alone is $1,000 per minute of flight time. The bill would disappear into debt collector purgatory never to be seen again. This would probably be a thing where the county spends thousands to prosecute the case and receives nothing in return. I'm really surprised there's not more of these accidents. I've been looking at old tailing piles by shafts and seen old 2 X 6s with Wal Mart Rope tossed down a 45° shaft. Lots of people enter them. It's got to be for adventure, because the mines weren't closed because they were making money hand over fist.
  3. Did not play for me. Could be my computer. Been having to open things in different browsers, Chrome, Edge, and Explorer. Usually that fixes these issues.

    Close to 4-Ounces!

    Nice Nuggets. It's pretty red. I wonder what the other metals are. Also Beat up like it traveled great distances. I hope its got some friends waiting to be found.
  5. Only time I wore and needed my gators and saw a rattler was the first time. I was walking before well before dawn and I think I kicked him walking. He scurried off rattling one direction and I scurried off just as fast the other direction. I had just bought the set when the week prior I was out detecting with my son and a rattler bit at his detector. Never needed them for snakes since, but the thorns do not penetrate.
  6. If that's a 0-30 PSI gauge, I may be able to use it. Looks the same size as the one that just broke on me.
  7. Apparently, you can enter a claim holders name in, and if the person has not paid, it will appear here with the amount owed. https://payp.blm.gov/epp-mc/search.do Just found out about this and I am thinking of adding this to my list of claims to look at. I don't think I will go out until the BLM officially closes the claim. They can be months late on updating the database, so the claim reflecting not paid only means that the BLM has processed the forms and check, it does not mean that person has not paid the current year unless the claim reflects closed. The BLM canbe months late. You can go onto LR2000 and find the claim is good through this year, or if the fees are paid, what's good about above, a single person can be listed and it can give you an idea about which may be dropping. There's a few people who have staked so many claims, that if I were to do that, it would take me a lifetime going to these places, just to get the markers up, never mind actually prove mineral exist. Sometimes these dropped claims are sold to a new owner who does not file for the following year and never filed the quit claim deed. That poor buyer often gets a second chance to buy the claim from the original seller for much neat the original price.
  8. Clay, as always I appreciate the research.
  9. Never could find a good answer on that, so I'm waiting on Clay's response. I do want to piggyback on that question: When a person buys an existing claim of greater than 20 acres, does it need a different person signing for each of the 20 acres? I believe the answer is a single person can purchase, but a single person filing on a 40 acre claim he bought told me the BLM was trying to take it away. I also have trouble finding one of the claims that has been bought without a signature for each of the 40 acres.
  10. That is a large amount of water moving and that drone has some range on it.
  11. For Sale: Gold Genie: $350 OBO Eliminator Reverse Helix Trommel: $3500 OBO PM for details. Located Central Arizona. West Valley.
  12. Now that is excitement. Other countries do not take as much interest in aviation safety as we do. One of the planes delivering supplies to us overseas was leaking some fuel out of the wing, so one of the crew steps out in shorts and flip flops while smoking a cigarette and puts a bucket under the wing to catch the fuel. Turned out modern AVGAS is not as explosive as the movies make it out, at least not that day.
  13. If you are going to get a PI, I recommend you go with the most expensive Minelab you can afford. Otherwise, you'll just be selling it in a few months to get a better one. Also, many better experts than me, but there will come a time, soon, where Minelab can't service the old ones if something goes wrong.
  14. Thanks Clay. After two months I've finally got LR2000 to work again by going to your link.
  15. Nice gold. In Arizona, I get almost as excited about seeing the water in the background as I do seeing the gold.
