  1. A good friend, and one of the best treasure hunting partners I've ever had, Andrew, recently took up yet another hobby creating Silver Coin Rings. I sent him a 1921 Morgan Silver Dollar, and here is the beautiful ring he created for me - Wow! Thank you Andrew!!!

  2. So what about a recovery scoop and a pocket gold pan in one? I promised you that I would be giving you another surprise this week. I have always loved using a recovery scoop, but it sort of aggravated me that little pieces of gold would sometimes sneak out of the scoop when I was trying to sift dirt into my hand. This aggravation has been even more exacerbated by the introduction of machines like the Gold Monster that find such dinky pieces of gold that they can surf right on top of the dirt and be easily lost. I have always advocated that when you get the target into your scoop try t

  5. The most valuable gold claim is the one a big corporation thinks they have but is in dispute. It does not have to have any gold at all. If you can find a tiny sliver of land you can make a good argument about it is worth as much as a rich placer. Lots of guys make their living getting in the way of a big project. It is easier and much more profitable than mining. There are hundreds of claims filed in areas where large mining interests are proposing a mine. Most of them must be dealt with in some way before plans move forward. A guy is much more likely to sell a claim to a big co

  8. We did it with an old truck axle and a piece of drill pipe. It made a sweet crushed that was cheap and could run material faster than either of the motorized crushers we had available. They always seemed to break down after a few buckets and we spent more time fiddling with the equipment than we did crushing rock. I made a small pulverizer out of an old hydraulic jack and a big valve spring. You could smack it with a 3 lb sledge and the rod would pop back up. That made fine crushing faster after the rock was broken down to pea size and smaller. We just hit the various sorted piles a

  9. All done. As all of you reported it was a piece of cake. There was no pain and the procedure was quick. Got there at 9 pm, walked out at 11:15 and went right to lunch. The laser portion took only like a minute to do the scan of the eye, then it reshapes the eye, makes incisions where the doctor is going to insert the vacuum, and then slices and dices the actual lens into little squares that are then easily vacuumed out and the new lens is inserted and oriented to the proper alignment. After the laser portion, you are then taken to the operating room where they finish the procedure.

  11. Certainly looks like fossils. I’d say either coral or crinoid pieces. I’m no fossil expert though, so I could be wrong.

  12. I found this on a hike in far West Colorado around 8,000 ft elevation. I've hiked these mountains for years and never found a rock like this. Just wondering if anyone might know what it is. It's slightly bigger then a baseball and really heavy. Should I posish it? Thank you!!
