Gold Prospecting 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.

    • Ok Tom here is the story Like fishing just when you think you have the pattern figured out, made it pay for a while they change the rules.  I started up this hill for no good reason and got the signal thinking trash. I looked down and saw the sun baker piece just as you see it in the picture.  I have a theory and have made it pay many times "Gold is never alone" so I stayed it the same area and picked up 2 of her friends. Truly a good day with the weather, fall colors on and gold. Did you know when the Ocotillo  leaves turn yellow fall is here.
    • I agree petrified wood, it can't be Pet Rocks, none have collars on! Dan, I think you sometimes you just have fat fingers and can't get them off the submit button! LOL
    • So Don, what we are looking at goes more like this?
    • Aaron:  I was using a 9x14 Evo Coil by Nugget finder. I have used CoilTek in the past but they seem to have problems with falsing after banging them around a few years. My buddy was using a 15 round Evo coil He was shooting deeper than I was with it.  This is not to say the "stock" minelab coils are not good. They are very good. Best advice I can give is just boots on the ground. Learn your machine and the coil that is on it. Once you learn that, you can experiment with other coils as the budget fits. I like the Mono Coils in the Arizona desert. Seems to handle the ground better.  If you have any other questions....just ask. Tom H.  
    • Nice Tom 👍 Mind if I ask what cool you were using on your 5000? I'm working on learning mine but I did find a boot tac that was about 4-5 inches deep, with the stock DD.
