    Dude your making things to difficult.. Your already in a known gold field where thousands of nuggets have been found. Your book title says it all; Follow The Drywashers. Stick to shallow ground and stay off those hill sides in Gold Basin. You have a vlf so dig everything. My first time at the Basin I scored a small handful of nuggets in and amongst the drywash workings. See you at the outing

    Hey Mitchel, while you were afield to the north I snagged a few down here in the desert of SoCal.

    In my opinion. "Books on prospecting will help you find gold. books on geology will help you find a lot more gold." AzNuggetBob

    The Costco Doctor One day, in line at the company cafeteria, Joe says to Mike behind him, "My elbow hurts like heck.I guss I'd better see a doctor." Listen, you don't have to spend that kind of money," Mike replies. "There's a diagnostic computer down at Costco. Just give it a urine sample, and the computer will tell you what's wrong and what to do about it. It takes ten seconds and costs ten dollars - a lot cheaper than a doctor." So, Joe deposits a urine sample in a small jar and takes it to Costco. He deposits ten dollars and the computer lights up and asks for the urine sample He pours the sample into the slot and waits. Ten seconds later, the computer ejects a printout: You have tennis elbow. Soak your arm in warm water and avoid heavy activity. It will improve in two weeks. Thank you for shopping @ Costco. That evening, while thinking how amazing this new technology was, Joe began wondering if the computer could be fooled. He mixed some tap water, a stool sample from his dog, urine samples from his wife and daughter, and a sperm sample from himself for good measure. Joe hurries back to Costco, eager to check the results. He deposits ten dollars, pours in his concoction, and awaits the results. The computer prints the following: 1. Your tap water is too hard. Get a water softener. (Aisle 9) 2. Your dog has ringworm. Bathe him with anti-fungal shampoo. (Aisle 7) 3. Your daughter has a cocaine habit. Get her into rehab. 4. Your wife is pregnant. Twins. They aren't yours. Get a lawyer. 5. If you don't stop playing with yourself, your elbow will never get better! Thank you for shopping @ Costco!

    I am reading "follow the drywashers" and "Fists full of gold" kiinda clutters my mind a bit, like an overload but working on it.

    I don't think your issue is knowing how to use the Monster. Rather.. it lies on finding a spot that has gold. I've said this many times before. Learning to use your detector is the easy part. Getting your coil over a piece of gold is the hard part and encompasses all facets of prospecting.

    Found a cool app on Google Play called AMS Meteor. American Meteor Society. I would imagine you can get it at the Apple App Store also. Just loaded with useful information for the night sky watcher. Wish I had this when I was out west. Not much use here in the big city with all the light pollution.

    Of these, one was snagged by my Gold Monster. The rest with the current "King of the Beasts".

    yes...yes... what BD said. My mistake when I first started was that I was working the deep washes. I have a GPZ now and I still stick to the shallows.

    Keep it simple, you're in the right area, you have the right tool and resources...the rest is up to you. Visualize one nugget by the end of the day's hunt..just one , dig all targets ..remember this is nothing but a numbers game. You dig enough targets and eventually one will turn up..its simple.

    Skip wish I could get the video on here. It's 10 minutes long could be the problem. The way he took those scissor looking things with wads of gauze on the end about 2 inches inside he would have found any gold in there. At one point he did pull out some stringy looking stuff. Then he squeezed a lot of the blood out. I did the same thing yesterday when I took the bandage off. All seems to be better tonight.

    Thank you NHrockhunter for the additional info. This is a hard nut to crack. Based on the photos and quick check on the geology of central NH, I think you have a heavily weathered piece of ultramafic dike rock. It fits the description in having a glassy matrix with small "needle" like crystals embedded in the matrix with mini/micro magnetite crystals. For a more exact ID, it would require either finding a geologist that is very familiar with the rocks of the area were this sample came from or giving it to a University willing to do a thin section analysis for you. If you get more info on the sample, please let us know. I would love to know exactly what it is.

    Rick, One way I know is: 1. Go to Search the Mineral Resources Data System , click on link, or go to https://mrdata.usgs.gov/mrds/find-mrds.php 2. Select your state from the list provided 3. Select 'gold' from the commodity list 4. Select Operation Type dropdown, Surface, Underground, Placer, ect. 5. Click on the 'search' button, The search will not show more than 10000 records. Enter only what you know, leave the other fields blank. At this point the search will occur and return a list of placer, Surface, or Underground Gold in the state. More importantly the screen will display a selection box that says, 'Choose Format'. Select Dropdown like google earth, and ‘Get Data’. Dave

    GPZ gets 40% more opal, I wish. One of the terrific members in my club donated that beauty for our veterans raffle and I had the lucky ticket:-)

    Have you been back to that spot where those guys found the six nuggets? The monster is no match for the SDC on small nuggets at depth, but it will find smaller stuff the SDC will have trouble hearing. Depth can also be made up for by raking or scraping off an inch or two of overburden. Sometimes it's a game of half inches. Don't let what happened at that spot discourage you. There is still gold there. If you're finding birdshot with the monster that's good, but keep in mind that the same sized piece of gold will not be as loud. You are in a gold bearing area, and you know of at least one spot where detectable gold has been found. They didn't get it all. The monster will find gold the SDC will struggle to hear. You should be running in all metal and digging everything. Recheck your holes. Your first 'nugget' might not be a trophy, but any gold found with a detector is a score and it counts.

    No it does not, if it is it is a defect..... The external speaker shuts off when headphones are plugged in. use of the wrong 1/8 to 1/4 adapter can cause issues as well if not stereo...

    This just shows that the techs at Minelab are great at circuitry, but are terrible at functional ,practical design. The Monster could have been packaged differently.
