  1. Past hour
  2. That owl wash sure has been kind over the years. Glad you found something Tom.
  3. Right on! Tell us the story Tom H.
  4. Dang Guys , thats a great day !!! Way to go
  5. No , not quite certain. But bright pink minerals similar to that color are not all that common. Cobaltoan ? calcite, Smithsonite, fluorite, Rhodo , all come to mind but I have doubts.
  6. Today
  7. That would be Mike, he's around..but I'm here every day with my head on a swivel, but I usually let them go at it a bit to see if it they'll work it out or if it will truly get out of hand and feelings get hurt before I blow the timeout whistle.
  8. If you would stay in one spot for more than 3 days we would Tom H.
  9. I'll be serious with my comment because I'm going to give you credit for knowing if it was spray paint or not. I'm sorry i can't help you id the rock as I haven't the expertise and knowledge of those whom so far have kindly responded so kindly :~{{
  10. It was a really great day out with you Luke. Both of us got some gold!!!! Wanted to do a Vid. of the little one I was chipping out of bedrock as I knew it was gold...but alas...I forgot my camera. Grrrr. Mine came in at 1.9 gram. Great weather and good times. Tks for going. Tom
  11. Nice nuggets you guys.... Good job!!!
  12. Nuggets are good, sunbakers are better !! Congratulations !!
  13. It looks like an awesome day! I'm glad that the shirt worked it's magic on your day!
  14. Not sure if its granite but i love the red and green ones. Nice texture and turn out smooth. Does it have the sparkly veins in it?
  15. Swing by and pick me up next time.
  16. Curious if anyone has a clue where the blue comes from in this rock? Is it a mineral by itself? I'm not finding any info from MGS, no response from the Geological Society of MN Found in north central Minnesota. I appreciate any ideas and people's time on this. Thanks
  17. Hey all, It's been awhile, but the summer is on it's way out and great weather is here !! Met up with Tom early this morning in my driveway..... He insisted on driving and I didn't want to argue with such a nice guy. Tom is such a nice guy, that he took me out to one of his most coveted detecting spots. Many ounces found there in the past and with the recent rains, things had been stirred up a bit. Even though it's been detected thoroughly in the past, there was still the possibility for some good finds and we were both excited to hike in there. Upon arrival, Tom wanted to detect the lower portion, and I hiked up a bit further. Maybe not as far as I should have. I knew it was the place I was going to set my backpack down when I rounded the bend and viewed a nice stretch of bedrock poking up through the gravels. This area has very little trash, but lots of large iron stones. Every few steps or less, there's a target to dig. Usually a loud, black rock turns up. But good gold has been found here, so you gotta dig em all. My 4th target was a nice half gram nugget. About 20 feet away, I scored another. I went to get Tom and he poked around there for a bit before going on up ahead. A half an hour later, he comes back with a freshly dug nug he had pried out of the bedrock up around the corner. Perfect day so far, no skunks and still time to find more. So we did. My third nugget, the biggest and deepest of the day, was found under or right next to, a bologna sandwich-sized iron stone. I spent about 10 minutes digging and widening the hole so I could get the 15" EVO in there to better pinpoint the target. Then the iron stone came out of the hole. It sounded exactly like what I had been hearing when I passed it over the coil. But I wasn't done yet. Always check the hole for another target. I slid the coil back in there and it screamed. A 2+ gram nugget was my prize. When I met up with Tom a little later, he had another nugget under his belt so all was good. We talked and rested for a bit, and then detected for another hour or so, before starting the journey home. On the way out, I couldn't help but wonder if my detecting costume somehow played a role in today's finds. When I first purchased this shirt, the seller didn't exactly say it, but it seemed implied that the shirt possessed magical powers. The first couple times wearing it, I was worried that I got a dud. But these last two times, after enough dirt and sweat and some catclaw holes in the sleeves, it seems to be working as intended. If any of you can get ahold of one of these shirts, I'd highly recommend it. Thanks again Tom, maybe I'll drive next time. Luke
  18. If so, it would be nice if i could find some. But in all my years i have nothing like that and there's a bit of sedimentary where i live too.
  19. So where is that moderator person now to referee this one? When Bedrock Bob and stillweaver had a friendly banter on my post he swooped down faster than an owl to a rabbit to blow the timeout whistle!
  20. That is so cool. I think I'd be out in the field most of the time. Have a hard time tearing myself away when on the search for rocks!
  21. Yesterday
  22. Oh, that is the pain of success!
