    My local Walmart carries Whink. They had it on the BOTTOM shelf until I told them how dangerous it was and that it DID NOT have any seal on it. Any little kid could open it up. They moved it up higher. And, it does work good on quartz samples.

    Of the 29 countries that I've been lucky enough to visit it's my firm belief that here in the USA we have more military hero's, past and present than any other country. THANK YOU VETS

    Thanks Tom I didn't think about box canyon. I think we will go there. That area is really nice. Thanks for the reminder! Thanks for the reply Chris you are right about the local lashes they will be hot! Prescott is way nicer than the valley.

    Hey Justin, I don't know if Lynx is running or not but it will be awful crowded with people this weekend. The last time we went we were run out by unruly campers. Just a thought consider Eugene Gulch, it has a creek and a waterfall there. Box Canyon above Wickenburg is a good place for kids also, and the water runs late into the summer. Try calling the ranger station for the area to see if water is running in the creeks. Old Tom

    Hey All.... With all you guys posting your recent finds, I decided to go out and find some gold of my own. I went out last night for a full moon hunt. Started off exploring some new areas, but ended up in a hammered gully that I like to call the 'Roadside Patch'. I've taken a few out of there in the past, and by the looks of the place, it's been worked pretty good with rock throws on each side of the gully. Because it's been hunted by myself and others, there's very little trash left, so when you get a signal, there's a good chance it's what you're looking for. This time around, I chose a spot where the gully crosses the road and flows over some exposed bedrock before dropping a foot or so and then turning and widening out. I used my Burro pick to clear the first few inches of rocks and gravel away and was just able to get a break in the threshold. A little more digging and the larger nugget on the top came to the surface. After finding the first one, I just expanded the scraped area to about 4'x4' and got another signal. Two targets in the hole this time. The second nugget was found first and then a large piece of lead (.38 cal) was also in the hole. With the bullet being so much larger than the nugget, I'm thinking that I detected the bullet and the nugget just happened to be there too.... ??? Anyways, it seems the lead, led me to the gold. No more to be found last night, but it's good to know that when you think a place has been picked over, there's still some gold hiding somewhere. Good luck out there. Luke

    Sierra Chemicals in Sacramento have gold chemicals. Must have a business license to purchase. I think it was about $65.00 gal/50% last time I checked. http://www.sierrachemicalcompany.com/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse&category_id=35&Itemid=2
