  1. Gpz7000, A Look Inside

    All of the older minelab units, minelab would spray paint the boards white, so no one could reverse engineer them. But I guess now since it's all microprocessor, they are not worried about it anymore. Thanks for showing video Jen... Dave

  3. Free Gold Basin and King Tut Garmin Topo

    Hey you guys, wow !!!! you pulled up some long ago stuff !!! Dont do those links, they no longer work. No sorry dont have the maps either.... But the best maps with land ownership info for the garmin is the onxmaps.com site. They cost money, but will cover the whole state you want. And best of all it tells if your on BLM, forest service, park service, private property lands... Dave
  4. Gold Basin Gold Specimens

    Thanks everyone !!! Hey Jen, I have used Muriatic before and just didnt have the same results.... :( , wish there was something more safe to use, but nothing compares , at least in my book to HF acid.... NEwbies... heck your an ol timer now , at least in my book, with some of the nice nuggets you have been getting.... Theres a lot more out there, just need more time , hehe... Dave
  5. Got out to Gold Basin recently, and did a morning hunt before the heat to try n get rid of some of the Summer gold addiction. A lot of water from the storms have exposed some nice washes, and I Ended up with a little over 16 grams of Specimen gold with ironstone..... ( Anyone have some Hydrofluoric Acid I could buy ???? ) I dont get to much of this ironstone mixed in with gold out there, mostly quartz, but hit a nice little patch of it. 2 meteorites to the right of the penny. The bees out in Gold Basin are out in full effect landing on you, wanting water, thirsty little guys. Sometimes I place a gold pan out with water, and when I come back from detecting, the whole pan is usually full of bees drinking. Stay Cool out there.....

  7. Google Earth Issues!

    Ron, Good to hear its working again for you... remember to regularly back up your google earth waypoints, ect to your email, memory card, ect... as I learned the hard way, once when my pc crashed, and I lost all my saved spots.... Also whats neat about google earth is you can download different overlays, such as topo's, surface ownership overlays, Fault lines, and its even neat to see different aerial overlays such as from bing, as they have different shading/ colors which allow you to see mines/ tailings that the colors in google earth will not show up on... Also setup a starting location for google earth, so when you first open google earth, it will zoom in to that location right away, just click view at top, and click on make this my start location. Just some tips to make it easier I hope... Dave.
