  1. Butterfield Trail

    If a Indian had someone after him he’d run that horse until it fell out from under him . Then take time to eat some of it and that could have been raw . After that he’d take off running on foot. That’s the reason the Indian got away a good percentage of the time. The white man put a value on his horse but the Indian put a value on nothing. That was because he got it free. Chuck

    For what it’s worth. The Butterfield started out with horses but the Indians liked them too . That’s why they switch to mules . That stop the Indians from stealing because they didn’t like the mules . What you may not know is the Indians like to ride the horses but they like to eat them too . They didn’t like the taste of the mules. One old Chief went to one of Butterfield station and told them if they didn’t get some horses he was going to kill them all . Chuck

  9. Fix For The Gold Monster 1000

    Guys All I ever wanted was for my GM to work and what I see it is. I'd say this is the end of the story. Thanks to all. Chuck
  10. Fix For The Gold Monster 1000

    I think I said something about what the Tech said about the Ground Balance being off. Now looking at the GM it's no way of knowing this unless you got a port and that has got to be where the coil hooks up. If a change was made in the programming to correct my problem we'll never know it. The Tech just wave his hand over it and the sea parted. Giving me another coil was what you call a miss direction. I'm giving you a new coil but I'm over here fixing your trouble. If true I wish they just tell it like it is and don't blow smoke up my ( because I can't see good when they do that ). Chuck
  11. Fix For The Gold Monster 1000

    Well I got out today to do my testing on the GM 1000 I couldn't believe how well it ran from the time I turned it on. I tested both coils in the deep mode and could run both with the sensitivity set at 7 without any noise but had some noise started at 8. Then I put it in the gold mode and I could run the sensitivity up to 10 in both coils. I did kick it into the auto plus but that's a maybe. I did try to see if either coil would false but that was not to be. I guess what gets me it didn't run this good at home and I did have some falsing there. I plan on more testing before I make a trip to nugget country.I wasn't so interested in depth on this but will next time. If your detector isn't working correct you forget about anything else. Chuck PS I know this don't help with any trouble some are having but I just tell it like it is.
  12. Fix For The Gold Monster 1000

    Bhogg I plan on making that trip I was talking about tomorrow. I can't see anything will be better that before being nothing was done to the unit. I really hope it works great and I will give it my best. I will report all in what I done plus all the settings I used here. The area has lots of black sand and a high mineral content with a small amount of gold plus some silver. Sending me another 5 in. coil in my opinion don't constitute a fix when it shows the same trouble. Until Then Chuck
  13. Fix For The Gold Monster 1000

    Mike I do hope all goes well when I get where I need to do the testing on my GM. The question about the engineer I wish I could say I know something but I didn't hear another word about him. I'm not so sure that the Tech believed what I told him to be true. Just like the new small coil he sent me I think it was more to make me happy that something had been done. He was so sure of himself he didn't bother to open it and try it. I don't want to send it back so I'll give it my best to check it out . Like said before until then. Chuck
  14. Fix For The Gold Monster 1000

    Well this morning I got my GM 1000 back from the repair center. I put it together and didn't turn it on until I got outside. I was told nothing could be found in trouble with the unit but just maybe on the small coil when he bump it. I had put the small coil on and when I turn it on it was set at 10 on the sensitivity with it set on the gold mode also. When it came alive all I heard was snap crackle and pop. The only way it would settle down was with the sensitivity at 5 or 6 or auto- sensitivity. The way he had it set I got falsing on my carpet grass and the same if you bump it on a tree. You could see the new coil hadn't been taken out of the plastic bag and tested on my detector before being sent. I have a place I can go to about a hundred miles from home that is high mineral belt. Some gold has been found there but a very small amount. One guy did find a small gold nugget and a silver one also. I will get back with everyone after the testing I said I'd do. Until then. Chuck

    Hey Andy Why don't you come on over from Az. I'm more than willing to wait for and you look younger than myself so I let you drive. We can hunt back together. That sounds like more fun than I can stand. Us just let Minelab ship my GM back to me and forget what I said before about coming. The Best Chuck
