    Did not go to Rawhide.

    So under the jewlers loop, it looks like it was in a trommel or something and got caught in a moving part or in between 2 moving parts. It has lines in the surface of it. So thin. Ill try to get dad to seend me a close up pic.

    Did not go to Rawhide.

    Hello all, Well we didn't go to Rawhide like planned. We decided to go hit our spot by lovelock just because we know the area. This trip was just my dad, my brother, my oldest son and myself. It was really cool having me, my dad and brother together again. It's been a long time since the 3 of us have been out chasing nuggets. Anyway, we got up there and about 2 hrs into it, dad banged the folded chunky one. Then I banged the 1.8 grammer about an hour later. Then dad found 2 more about a foot apart from each other. The one he found looks like someone hit it with a hammer. I know it wasn't naturally made that way lol. My brother and my son went nuggetless for the day but the weather was awesome and the long needed family time was great. Take care everyone. Dan

    Rawhide Nevada

    It's real interesting ground. Very heavy mineralization and decomposing quartz everywhere.

    Rawhide Nevada

    Yeah the town is gone. I have researched it quite a bit over the last few years but was just curious if anyone on here has detected it. The mine is active but in the closed status due to funds. The open pit sits right on the main placer area. There are outlying areas that I have been looking at and they look really good. I was down there at the geothermal plant for work a few months ago and there are drift mines all over that I never seen when we were poking around there in the past. I think that's where we will go for the day.

    Rawhide Nevada

    Thanks Andyy. I agree with ya. It's just not my stomping grounds anymore so I figured I would take the easy way out and cheat for some info lol. Guess I was just seeing if anyone has found any detectable gold.

    Rawhide Nevada

    Hello all, hope your staying cool. It's HOT!! I have a quick question. I was wondering if anyone on here has detected around Rawhide nv. I grew up in Fallon but we always headed to Lovelock and Winnemucca detecting. We tried it once or twice but that was when we really had no idea what we were doing. This weekend is my dads 60th birthday so we are headed down for 4 days to visit. We are thinking of trying Rawhide again on Friday since it is close and in the 90s. Any thoughts? Thanks everyone.

    Bacon wood knife scales

    Awesome job. Just apply the oil or whatever finish you go with on a normal basis. That's the thing about our environment we live in, very hard on wood handles because they dry out and crack. You probably knew that already. Beautiful knife bud.
