Forum Guidelines

There are just a few rules here and yup I do enforce them and keep an eye on things as best I can. Here are a few guidelines I'd like you to follow if you will be participating here. This forum is not moderated as heavily as the other sections so please do not enter or open a topic if you think you will be offended. If you are at least respond like an adult or we will remove your post as soon as brought to our attention.

Vulgar and abusive language is not welcome here! Heck a cuss word to get a point across is not so bad, but I think you know what I mean.

I will not host public arguments and pissing matches between individuals here so please just don't do it. When it happens the post most times will simply vanish into cyber space.

Political or Religious posts belong in "Off Topic" but surly you can find other forums that host those discussions if it is your thing, I don't think anyone cares if you are Conservative or Liberal when we are out hunting gold nuggets.

You may not use this forum to advertise any other dealer, store, or product without written permission by owner at any time. Used items are allowed in the classified section.

This forum is not responsible for anything said by it's members at any time. This is a public forum and will remain so and although I can and will occasionally zap "bad content" I don't do it often and so far have never permanently banned a person. Also opinions expressed here do not always represent the opinion of the forum's owner!

Guests are welcome to browse the forum and use the information provided by registered members, but you can not post yourself until you are a registered member.

That is pretty much it my fellow Nugget Shooters so enjoy the forum, keep it clean and play nice.

    • Terry, If he doesn't have the owner's/operation manual here's link to it from Garrett's website. https://garrett.com/sites/default/files/pdf/2020-12/GM3_Goldmaster_en.pdf
    • There is an old camp up there from back in the day. It is remote & I don't think anyone has ever done any detecting there but not sure. I didn't see any fresh signs of digging. 
    • I sent you an  email, Terry. I'm not surprised he needs some help. Then original GM's were a little disconcerting then first time you ground balanced. I thought mine was broken...LOL Had to watch a Gary Honan video to figure it out. I'll post a link to that video as soon as I find it. it was a big help. Jim
    • Mining is a lot of fun but it is not easy. It is hard work out in all kinds of weather and it's a dirty job. Hardly ever a day where something doesn't break or need work. I remember one day back in 2019 when we were testing an area on the Eastern Drift Mine from the journal. We were using a Heckler Fabrication trommel and loading with a skid steer. The digging chores were done with a mid size excavator. It was August & about 100 degrees and I headed up the mountain to shut down our 2 water pumps nearly half a mile away. Just laying that line and clearing a path for the layflat hose had been a monumental task. We had to put the pumps in series to get the water to the pond. Anyway, it was about 5:30 PM and we were shutting down for the day and dog tired. When I came back down the mountain  saw 2 of my partners up on the hopper of the trommel shaker that fed the barrel. They had rock bars and shovels. I knew this wasn't good. They had a massive jam up and we worked for nearly 2 hrs to free it up. This is the kind of thing that can happen. You always need someone who can weld and is a good mechanic. I've been soaking wet on the back of a feeder hopper with a rock bar keeping things from jamming up in 40 degree temps. It's no fun until you see the gold.
    • BTW, my wife recently read the 1936 journal out of the book. She got quite a kick out of it but said the ending was very sad. She was amazed I had written all of this. She knew I was writing it but never read any of it until now. She hasn't read any of the 1937 journal yet.
