  1. Price dropped to $375 & Free Shipping in the USA. Thanks, Don
  2. I have a lightly used 25" Nugget Finder Advantage coil for sale. This coil is in excellent condition and has only been used a few times. It's the deepest coil I have ever owned for large gold! $425 and Free Shipping within the USA. Please email or call if interested. Thanks, Don Newell 206-755-8927 donnewell10@gmail.com

    ATX vs GPX

    I would like to see a big nugget test done with the ATX using a Mono coil. (Since DD Coils are known to lose 20% depth vs the same size mono)

    coils 12 X 19 or 18 inch round

    The 18" Round Mono will go a few inches (1-3") deeper than the 18.5" Elliptical Goldstalker coil on larger nuggets. I used to own both of these coils and compared them. Sold both of them because they were too large for my terrain and I picked up a lot of interference here. But way out in the wide open desert is probably a different story. -Don
  5. Your post made me think of this recent UK article I read. (Interesting Psychology of the Green Meanies) http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/7458105/Liars-cheats-thieves-the-terrible-truth-about-the-mean-greens.html Summary: Many of the Greens turn out to be greedy and even amoral or unethical misers in disguise. They don't want others making any profits or having any fun in life. They use the Green movement to show others that they are superior but it is all a fraud. I know of a person in my life who is exactly as they describe. Always pretending to be above everybody else and always TAKING away from others. He is constantly talking green products and business whether it makes business sense or not. His real motive is that he enjoys watching others fail and feel pain.

    Metal Detectors and Detecting

    Here is the Forest Service own policy (and the law) regarding metal detecting on public land. (PDF File) http://www.fs.fed.us/geology/For%20Web%20posting%20on%20Locatables%20page/Mineral%20and%20Rock%20Collecting%20on%20the%20National%20Forests.pdf

    A Few Washington State Pieces

    Hello Jeff, Yes, I would also like to know what kind of detector and coil you were using to find these wire gold specimens? I know it is very difficult to find these. Thanks! Best Regards, Don
  8. FYI: This crap has now passed and is going to Obama for signature. In regards to fossil collecting, there was a provision for casual collecting but it is a very vague law that can criminalize most anybody especially when a Forest Ranger with a ticket quota comes along. There is even a provision for rewards for tattle tales! I am not too affected here in Washington State for the Wilderness areas but I feel sorry for people in other states that will now be shut out. -Don
  9. Hello Gary, I am not a legal expert so I can't say exactly if it is constitutional or legal to do what they are doing. But it sure seems like the mafia works in Washington D.C. If they don't get their way they lie, cheat, and steal to get it. And they don't really care how constitutional or legal it is because they no longer serve the people. On the surface it seems none of these restrictive laws we are seeing are constitutional as they are erasing people’s personal rights & freedoms. The USA was supposed to be a libertarian republic where everybody's rights were protected. Now, we have this left/right government model that thinks progress is passing laws that serve special interests and makes the people unhappy slaves. I think the current system of government is corporate & banker looting fascism. Thomas Jefferson Quote: ----------------------------- “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous than standing armies… if the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of currency… the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of their property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” ----------------------------- Best Regards, Don
  10. So, this S.22 bill failed and now the Senate has sneakily put S.22 back into bill HR 146 as an amendment. It has now passed the Senate and is going to the House next. What are the scumbags in Washington doing? I guess it might be illegal to pick up that fossil after all! (along with 2 Million Acres of new wilderness area, etc.) NEW HR 146 Details: http://dpc.senate.gov/dpcdoc.cfm?doc_name=lb-111-1-37 Land Grab Article: http://www.infowars.com/senate-passes-bill...es-in-9-states/ -Don
  11. The Obama Gun ban list has been released. http://www.infowars.com/obamas-gun-ban-list-is-out/ Unconstitutional as heck but that doesn't stop them even though they swore an oath to it. -Don
  12. Hello Propanner, I agree with you, the government is a whore for hire. I even heard it said the reason Government is shutting people out with Wilderness areas, etc. is because they have pledged the natural resources of these areas as collateral for USA debt to China and other countries. Farfetched? I worked in the manufacturing industry and was yelling and screaming the whole time it was being sent to China. Nobody really cared but they sure do now! This is probably going to be the same situation with mining down the road. (I owned an electronic component distribution company that had to be shut down because of manufacturing going to Asia.) The unions and people getting greedy is what caused everything being sent to China. You can pay somebody $200 per day in the USA or $1 (or less) a day in China. If somebody cuts off their finger in an American factory they sue for millions of dollars and the company goes out of business. In China if you cut off your finger you are fired. The American people did do some of it to themselves by being spoiled but our government has been lacking the common sense (or doesn't care) to do anything about it for a long time. Moving everything to China was to exploit its slave labor work force. I think this is one of the main reasons we are in a recession/depression now. The new USA service economy model doesn't work in the long run. I could go on and on but I don't want to hijack the thread any further. It is supposed to be focused on stopping the mining bill HR 666 I mean HR 699. Thanks, Don
  13. One thing to remember is that it is PUBLIC LAND managed by the Forest Service and BLM. PUBLIC LAND is for the People of the USA. Sometimes you will catch a Forest Ranger calling it "Forest Service Land" as this is what they are taught. They do not want miners on THEIR land. The miners where I mine always correct the Rangers when they say this and it causes them to take one step back. Even right now it takes forever to get a plan approved in my area. They can take years even though the law states they are supposed to respond within 30 or 60 days. (can't remember if it was 30 or 60) All I hear are miners complaining about lack of cooperation in getting their plans approved. If this law goes into effect I see only the rich & powerful getting their plans approved. All us little guys will probably never get anything approved or be just plain denied mining or prospecting rights. They are taking our rights and turning them into deniable privileges just as they are trying to do with many other rights like the 2nd Amendment for example. 2009 is going to be a bad year. (and 2010, 2011, 2012.......) I know that some of these politicians are just ignorant and don't understand how these laws they pass have serious unintended consequences. On the other hand, I think there is a large portion of government that is totally corrupt and even criminal. I bet Rahall is posing as an environmentalist while being bribed by some large special interest. There is probably a large mining company rubbing its hands together when it eliminates all its competitors with this bill and gets special treatment. Treasonous Scumbags! Best Regards, Don
  14. Hello Sawmill, Since most people are too lazy to read through even the summary of the bill I think they need a very clear picture painted for them. As it applies to us the small scale miner: What would this mean for metal detecting in the USA? And Dredging? Would it shut everything down with impossible to meet regulations for the small miner? Would it end the mining supply industry in the USA including all the current Minelab and other dealers businesses since customers will not be able to comply with this law? (I am not even going into the destructive effects on our economy this bill will have when we have to source most minerals from foreign countries.) I posted this on other forums as well but nobody paid attention. Instead they were gawking at small pieces of gold posted while their hobby is being shut down. If this passes they won't be posting much of those nuggets anymore. Even if they comply with this crazy law I doubt these guys will want to pay 8% of everything they find. Sometimes I think Americans deserve what they get for being so asleep. Can we wake people up or are we finished mining within a year or two? I hate how this country uses the left/right paradigm to abuse our freedoms. We are truly living under the tyranny of the majority instead of the Libertarian republic this country is supposed to be where all right & freedoms are protected. Every 4-8 years the public gets pissed and vote in the right and they remove freedoms on the right. Then in another 4-8 years the public gets pissed again and vote in the left and they remove freedoms on the left. The whole thing is a fraud to herd sheep. Soon, this system of manipulation leaves all American citizens in a virtual prison with no rights & freedoms at all. If this crap doesn't stop our children will one day be asking what it was like to be free. The only thing allowed will be to sit in front of your computer or T.V. and go to work as a slave for the system and it's taxes. No more mining for you slaves! Pay your taxes on every aspect of your life and enjoy it. Heck, the RFID chip in your hand would probably interfere with your detector anyway. Best Regards, Don

    SD detector interference / trick

    Hello Frank, Did you actually try this and notice a significant reduction in noise? Best Regards, Don
