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.

    • My advice for newbies is to always "learn to walk before you learn to run." Start with a good VLF, and determine whether nuggetshooting is really for you. To be honest about it, most people who buy a prospecting detector do so after seeing pictures of massive piles of nuggets, and they think nuggetshooting is easy. But it's not. As mentioned above, some folks search for years and find little or nothing.  If you find that nuggetshooting is not for you, sell your machine, and move on. Which is why I don't recommend a newbies' first machine to be highly expensive. In my own case, back in 1983 I bought a Garret A2b, and practiced for hours in my yard. And I read everything in print, which wasn't much. My first outing was with Jimmy Sierra and Woody Woodworth, two of nuggetshootings earliest icons. After three hard days of detecting, I found a raisin-sized piece. The first thing I said was not "Eureka," but "Well, it's about time!." Bottom line: buy a Goldmaster 24k with both the 10x6 AND 6.5, searchcoils, get a set of high performance headphones, a nugget cup, my book "Advanced Nuggetshooting with the Goldmaster 24k" , do your site-locating research, and go at it. Hope you do well. HH Jim
    • Adam ya need to wear yer snake guards , they will keep em out.  
    • I didn't even think of a PI detector until down the road. Just remember to invest wisely. Dont spend more than you have to. Also, most people keep their vlf machines when they bump up to a PI.  For me , I got the gold bug 2 for myself, the gm1000 came shortly after. Sdc2300 around 1 year later.  
    • Nice looking nuggets sir, congrats.
    • Gorgeous nuggets Luke. Congrats.
