  1. Gold Bug Pro FS

    BUMP .... Christmas is fast approaching and there is probably someone on your 'Nice" list that deserves this great machine. If bought locally or visiting the area locally I will offer a free lesson to get you started on this great machine. IT WILL FIND GOLD!!! Buy it now and you will have to the end of February 2018 to collect on the lesson offer. For $500 you can't go wrong with this machine and a private lesson on proven gold bearing ground.

    BUMP! Christmas is coming ... this would make a great gift for the beginning prospector. If bought locally or visiting the area locally I will offer a free lesson to get you started on this great machine. IT WILL FIND GOLD!!! Buy it now and you will have to the end of February 2018 to collect on the lesson offer. For $200 you can't go wrong with this machine and a private lesson on proven gold bearing ground.
  3. FS: Minelab Pro-Find 25

    Jen ... Seems your pinpointer has gone the same way as my V-sat and GB Pro detectors. Both of mine are collecting dust without even an offer ... not even a low ball offer! I feel your pain!
  4. Funny how that happens a lot Gary. It wasn't a matter of sabotage but a break down in the system that caused the switch in this system. It happens my friend. Many of my posts have ended in a totally different subject from what I started. I really liked you idea to encourage sharing info and posts of successful hunts. I for one don't post many of my nugget finds. Just something I learned from a couple of my early mentors ... even those before I became addicted to gold ... back in my beach hunt days. I will try to post more finds in 2018 ... OK? We all learn a little from each other no matter our experience level when the details of the find are shared as well. That doesn't mean coordinates to the location but what type of soil and what drew you there is interesting info ... at least it is to me. One thing I have gained from others is a realization and personal results of finding more gold in Metamorphic rocks/soils than I have in Volcaniics(Basalt for example). That is not to say that one can't find gold in Volcanic material just that there seems to be less there or if in Basalt not all detectors can be worked there. Onward and upward from here!
  5. WOW! ... That brings back memories of my old IBM 25 PC . .. pile of 5" floppy discs and all!
  6. Good work and gold Moody ... Me thinks you are still in a good 'mood'! (sorry couldn't resist) The extra work digging the over burden is a sign of good things coming to you in the future! Keep up the good work. Oh ... And welcome to the madness on this forum!

    Hey Rick ... The idea as far as getting around in the desert is to stay verticle ... ! Heal quickly my friend!

    not the Nugget Shooter way!
  9. Anaconda mining

    As a regular investor ... mostly a trader as I usually don't keep anything more than about 30 days ... penny stocks just aren't worth my time. I'm sure if one has patience and a lot of time one could stumble across the next Amazon or Facebook ... I'm just not that patient!

    I find it hard to invest in the small miners. If you want to be in gold on the stock market be in the symbol 'GLD'.
  11. Two Seater or Single Seater?

    I have a 2012 Polaris RZR 800 ... comfortable, fast, nimble and a pleasure to ride over almost any terrain. And only 50" wide so it takes easily to all but the skinniest trails ... read that motorcycle/rokon trails. The one problem I have is capacity. It is just me and Max my black lab so the cockpit is full with people/dog/water/bowl/small cooler/tire jack. The 'bed' is odd shaped and small for all the gear I want when I venture well off road. Put a spare tire, survival gear and gas can in and the drywasher and related gear or the detector gear and accessaries have a hard time finding room to ride along. I have sometimes serious concerns and thoughts about finding an older Polaris Ranger 400 .... that's the two seater, smaller unit. I am looking at that because I know that the hight of the newer ones won't fit inside my 2001 21' Prowler Toy hauler without removing the stationary bunk bed which I only use for storage. I tried sleeping in that bunk once ... claustrophobic and hard for this old man to get out of bed 2-3 times per night down a precariously placed ladder! Anyway off subject. If I found someone willing to trade for a fair price a good working Ranger 400 and a few dollars for my RZR I would probably do the deal. The Ranger makes a much better prospecting rig than the RZR other than for speed and agility ... I have driven both extensively so know the limitations of both.
  12. AMERICA'S HERO'S ll......

    Great Post Don! Thanks.
  13. Cool video Doc ... I have watched a few different procedures over my lifetime. Always surprised how little bleeding takes place ... well in most procedures anyway. Get well my friend ... looking to see you back in the field after your recovery. Doc ... You being a Doc yourself ... don't try to second guess the Doc just because you are a Doc! Doc knows best ... The surgery Doc that is!

    Looks good Bill ... How long before you have them in stock?
