    Got Gold ?

    Randall; the answer is yes and no...seriously! The thread at the top about gold is full of tips, reading and learning is great too....experience combined with all that is wonderful. So is a dash of luck. anyway, maybe Adam will share with us his general methods... fred

    Got the e-800

    Wow, no Minelab Approved charging device....they are very specific about the certifications they accept... Or get a Charger sold by Minelab. Ok, why not include it in the box and charge for it...easy and no worries about the warranty... I know most people probably have a dozen things that might work, I ain't one of them... oh well...I will shut my mouth and get in line---just had to get that out of my matrix. fred

    Which detector?

    I used a gb2 for several years and found many tiny nuggets with it. However, my fingers was constantly adjusting the ground-balance to suit the situation... My buddy Jeff bought a gm1000 and is much happier with it....I think it is a great detector and better than Minelab hoped for... In defense of opinions, I think Doc and Bill have the experience to speak on either detector-or both! fred

    Is this a flanged button tektite? Dig Find

    Mike, those are the only Known sites...it is a big and surprise filled world...not that I disagree...nor am I arguing with you. Moqui Marble...very interesting and once again proving how difficult identifying any object can be when using photos... fred

    Is this a flanged button tektite? Dig Find

    Maybe, question is, how did it get to there from OZ? It looks a lot like the tektites I have seen in OZ... fred

    Bug 2 or gold monster

    My buddy Jeff went out three times and got a piece each time....albeit they were very small....if I wanted a dedicated vlf gold hunter the Monster is the one...however, the gb2 is a worthy contender... remember 480 GRAINS to a troy OZ that means if you find 1/10 GRAIN bits you will need 4800 to get to an OZ...that is a lot of bits and pieces!
  13. or get a copy of Jonathan Porter's dvd on the 3500.... fred
