  4. Yesterday
  5. Hi all! I bought this rock many years ago on a surf trip to morroco. The guy told me if I could guess what it was I could have it for free. I couldn't so I ended up buying it 😁 He reckoned it was a meteorite, I was sceptical but I liked the look of it. It is heavy and feels like it's metal. Any ideas on what it is? Thanks!
  6. Greetings, Its a boy! After 2 long days of hard labor, and under a stormy sky, the rebirth from the womb of mother earth finally came. At approx. 3:15 PM local time on Tuesday April 23, 2019 in southern Arizona, it arrived. Weighing in at 1.4 grams, with a pointy head, chunky body and a golden disposition, I decided to name this unique nuggie "Arrowhead" Along with its 2 earlier siblings, I reckon he can officially be called a patch nuggie. The delivery was rather uneventful as the soil blanket that covered him was only a few inches deep. The doctor (me) was extremely surprised due to the fact this "golden boy's" vocal rebirth scream was so loud that a butt ugly lead bullet was expected to be had. Arrowhead is so far the prettiest and heaviest nuggie found thus far with my Gold Monster 1000. Bigger and better ones will surely come to past. As our Australian friends like to say, "Its a Rippah!"
  7. Nice going! Easter Bunny left me some brown nuggets, but no gold! Regards, Kyle
  8. $40.48 is my estimation, course I could be wrong. OldTom
  9. Boy, don't they stink when you smoosh them? Gotta pick them up with a tissue or rag, or you'll be eating that smell for dinner. Old Tom
  10. When experimenting you will have a bit of an eye opener about the differences between timings and resulting depth differences especially with medium to larger coils on large targets. When I was testing this detector for Minelab before it's release we worked many hours with different coils and timings regarding target size and depth.... If you can find a natural deep non ferrous sounding target that is faint adjust your detector and listen to the target in different timings to get the best results. You can bury one on the edge of hearing it with the "fine gold" timings then try different timings and coils. Learning your machine completely is the key to finding toe deeper and missed nuggets. Minelab DID NOT and these timings and settings for no reason and learning them is the key as said.
  11. Thanks Bill, ill play around with Normal and see if i get better results.
  12. Yo all...Dodacious and I recently bought a motor home that we love but I'm too stove up in my back to be able to travel...So, reluctantly, we must sell it ... It is on Craigslist right now...Dodie and I agreed that we can give an extra discount to forum members to get a quicker sale...Some of you may have seen it at Bill's Quartzsite outing...Check it out HERE on Craigslist...Cheers, Unc
