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.

    • Thanks for the comments "ALL"'.... Well adam I don't know that I would consider the foxtail grasses to be the "most dangerous" in my photo's, but I do agree that they not only hide a rattler "all-to-"Well"" when ya walk thru them; but I also do hate it when they hitch a ride in my socks, boots, and,... the cursed things really stick to my shoe laces  .....And you sure don't want to just pluck them off when you get home and just let them fly in the wind outside your door step, as they will start growing on your property  As for ruining my detecting day,....that "I" did myself by not taking a backup battery for my detector that day. UGH  I usually keep my batteries well charged after each days usage, but it is hard to tell when they start "not holding" that charge, or when they start loosing their charge too fast during detector usage.  So, thinking that I had a fully charged battery, I was working my way slowly up the wash, and had only use the battery about 2-hours when I began hearing that dreaded warning sound that the battery makes when it is almost dead, on it's last leg, and/or is dying, ...or about to die.  So, if I hear that sound (which I have heard once or twice in the past), the next sound that I hear would be from me saying:..."Oh Crap!!!"   I was glad though that the very first spot that morning that gave me the very first signal was the one nugget that I found (the 15-20 other signals where all lead slugs).  It was kind of cool (and not-usually-of-the-norm) to just turn the detector on, ground balance it and then the first spot I put the coil over gave me the signal of that nugget!!!,.........What a way to start a day.    So, Yes, I will be packing an extra (newer and charged) battery with me as backup from now on.  Gary
    • fredmason, Thanks. Yeah it is kind of , i'm trying to figure out what would be best for me. I think i got it narrowed down. 24k or GM1000
    • Thanks AllenJ, the 24k does indeed look nice, i'm liking it more than the rest. But than again the GM1000 will end up being cheaper because i'd have to buy the extra concentric coil for the 24k. Hmm... I sent a email to White's and they replied promptly to my inquiry about their TDI SL SE. My email said. Hello, I was wondering if your TDI SL special edition was comparable to minelab gpx-4500? They replied. Dear Garik Fox Thank you for your interest in White’s products. Yes, White’s TDI SL Special addition is comparable to all the high power pulse models. Typically, the TDI SL Special Addition is a fraction of the price, a fraction of the weight, and provides comparable performance. Sincerely Steve Howard White’s USA
    • I felt like I was being watched, now you know what wash I dropped into.  lol!
    • Garifox you should be completely confused and befuddled by now.  If money is a concern start small... If you must have the newest, brightest toy; go BIG! When I started in 1980 I had visions of big nuggets and great wealth...my first detected nugget came after many vain and false starts...the size of a grain of rice!!! What a thrill, what a memory!  I have done moderately well since, learned a lot and made many great friends. There in lies the real gold. good luck fred
