  1. Went out today for the first time in about 5 months. WOW! What a awesome day! Just under 9 grams in 3 hrs. I hiked 3/4 mile up pizza wash and within 5 min I got the big one. It kept reversing the signal so I was not sure. I guess its just so solid it does that. The big one is 5 grams. Got the other two a little farther down the wash. Its always a good feeling when your digging and you get down to the red hardpack and then hit bedrock and the signal is still there. Good Lord really blessed me today But, my legs are shot! Need to get back in shape from the summer hibernation.

  2. This reminds me of a feller that came to an outing years ago with something similar, Shep had 2 huge nuggets and when the guy couldn't find them he said they were to close and to big BWAHAHAHA

  3. Found a 1.25 oz flat piece initially in that wash. Looked like a pizza to me! After that close to 5 oz in that wash. Just seems to never keep giving it up! All of them have some hematite on them. Wash is LOADED with banded ironstone so you are digging a lot of that also. But, when you know there is gold in it you just dig. Another nice thing is there is hardly any trash in it. Its a dream wash for sure. I can drive right up to the mouth of it and head in. Lots of people just drive right by it. I think once they start hitting the ironstone they give up.

Nothin is EZ if it were Everybody would do it πŸ˜‚πŸŽ―πŸ€  2 tenths of a gram sounded like an echoing πŸ’₯ explosion on twin speakers backpack harness, almost as loud as the rusted nails and other lead an debris detected Saturday.

  8. A few samples I found during hunting season near the edge of a known gold district. Found three spots I'd like to go back to next year and look around more.

  10. We seem to have everyone doubting this device works as advertised, they clearly showed that there was a buried pot of gold that this device detected in the cartoons and still ya'll doubt it will work, shame on ya'll!!! The only problem I have with this device is now is I have learn to how to properly pronounce words that I thought I knew how to pronounce!!

  11. I do think the rains helped. I could tell material was moved by a storm we had about 3 weeks ago. Not as much as one we had 2 yrs ago....that one blew out everything! So, if it moved 6 inches of gravel and put it somewhere else...it helped. Im using the 5000 in Fine gold with a 9x14 EVO coil. A VLF would be worthless in this wash with all the banded iron stone. I know there is more gold in there in the deeper areas. Im just not too into placering it out. Tom H.

  12. Well, thanks. One of those things, everytime that I'd cut her in the wind, I was taking a chance. Sundance was built to run, and she'd cover a lot of ground in an hour. As we got older, she didn't range out as far. But a mile is only 15 minutes for her. But, I had her in what I'd consider a "safe zone." We've spent a lot of time together and I will miss the little girl. Already do. But I'm puppy shopping. Here she is at my "Spring Camera".

  15. In the first picture, the 4 Quarters on the right don't count. I found those here at work. The rest of the coins I've dug, plus a few more. If you look at the top right of the first pic, I think that's a brass lid to a snuff box? It's hard to get the lighting right, but I was told the other little box thing might me a match box? The big glob of lead looking stuff, is I think linotype? It's harder than lead. In the second picture is the Dime, I found it the very first day that I had this new machine on the ground. Figured that was a good omen. 1913. It sounded good. The little thing on the left, I've been told it was a junk ring? It'll sparkle, but looks like it's missing stones or something? The little thing on the right, I'm not sure, but I think it was a tree ornament? Tiny little thing, someone missed it when the dragged the tree out of the house? Maybe. But that's most of everyting decent that I've found, recently. I've got a table full of junk, truckbed is full too. The 1946 Dime I found the other day, had it here at work showing it to some friends. It was a pretty coin. A guy asked me what I wanted for it. Told him that I wasn't going to sell it. Then asked if 46 meant anything special to him. That was the year he was born. So, I told him, it's all yours. He's a good friend, good customer and veteran, so that was a good deal.

  16. Mitch I went in to clinic Labor day thought I was having a reaction to a new med they put me on. They said no you have shingles ! Surprised the hell outta me. I was never aware of a vaccine for it. When I went to my primary care Dr. Couple weeks later to check up on it He told me about it said to wait till November. Yeah I'm not one for vaccines but if it prevents going thru that again and maybe worse I may do it.

  20. I think that cube is possibly limonite after pyrite. But honestly not sure. Either way found it to be pretty cool in it's own right.

  30. The blue staining looks like copper staining, probably chrsyocolla. I wonder what the black squares that appears you dislodged from the quartz. I've seen black tourmaline needles in a similar quarts rock, but this tourmaline erodes along with the quarts. This black square you have seems to be harder than the quartz and not eroding along with it. Quartz is a pretty hard rock, so that square must be harder.

  37. That hood ornament is from a 1955 Chevrolet, but the tail appears to be broken off or in this case possibly shot off , the 1955 has a long tail. We had numerous 1955, 1956, 1957 and 1958 Chevrolets when I was a youngster. Here's a photo of what the 1955 ornament would look like intact, a 1956 looks very similar but has a stubby tail and shorter wing fins. 1956

  40. These are very nice samples of the famous Texas Ironstone. The outer shell is Hematite, and the inner core is a mixture of Goethite and Limonite. This was extensively mined back in the late 1800s, and early 1900s as a source of iron. There are many USGS publication from the 1920s on the mines and the source of the Ironstones.

  41. Yep, know where you are in AZ, when beeping, parking or camping. Years ago I was camped on BLM land at LSD and someone called the sheriff on me. That person claimed I was either on private property or state land. My dog Nugget was just a pup then, but he was big. The sheriff came out and Nugget playfully jumped on him. The guy knew how to train dogs and as Nugget's paws were on his chest, he stepped on one of Nugget's back paws. Nugget let out a yelp and got the message. He never jumped on anyone again. Long story short, the sheriff got out his map and determined that I was indeed on BLM land. Then he said "Nice dog. Enjoy your stay." and left.
