  1. Finally was able to get out and detect for a weekend with a fellow forum member. He was only able to make it for one day verses my 2 days. We focused on hitting new areas looking for leader nuggets.. He was able to find one really nice piece. After that I spent many hard hours with no luck finding a patch. My first night by headlamp I headed to a old Bonevolent patch that we thought was worked out. Turns out we missed 3 chunky pieces. 2nd night hunt went to a different worked out patch and found 5 more chunky bits.. All the small stuff was just the gold monster 1000 being an amazing sensi

  2. Went down to the ballpark this afternoon. Not too bad. Tried to dig more low sounding targets. Got my first wheat cents, a 53 and a 54. Leads me to believe there is a good possibility of silver here. So far I've made 1 pass up the left field fence, starting at the outfield line. And across the back fence to center. Not a bad 2 hrs.

  3. I got out this weekend with some good friends. We hit all new area in an old spot with no luck. Then we decided to jump in the truck to an area we have never been. The area was worked hard by old timers who left lots of trash. Once tired of kicking hit rocks and digging their trash I got out of the washes and started pounding hillsides. The area is covered in "desert pavement" and one tiny piece of gold getting a tan. Good times were had by all!

  4. So after almost a 20 year hiatus, a new equinox found it's way to my home. Tomorrow will be the first month down, and has been a good learning experience. The biggest thing I've learned is I need to dig more trash signals to find the good stuff. The areas I have available to hunt get mowed with big 3 blade mowers and they turn aluminum cans into bits and pieces, so after digging a few I started cherry picking the high tones. This thing sure does like dimes. Nothing old as of yet, but also focused on learning the machine at this point. Park 2 GB auto Multi freq 50 tone

  5. Witching with copper rods worked for me one time. Had a leak in a 4 inch line and the water was coming up through a gopher hole about 12 feet from where I thought the line was. I had put the line in about 25 years ago. I thought the line ran under the middle of the road. After witching it I found it was about 8 ft away from the road middle. Dug down and found the line right where the rods crossed. I had forgotten I moved the road over when we put the vineyard in. Worked for me. Bob

  8. That is the most meteoritic looking specimen you have found to date! Cut a deeper window in it. I bet it is iron. And I bet it streaks metallic too. You need to get below the shale "crust" and get a better look at the inside. I think you have found your first meteor wrong Will! I can't guarantee that it is not a meteorite. I would bet a hundred bucks it isn't but I couldn't prove it wasnt. That is the problem with artifacts. They usually contain nickel just like a meteorite. And they are often in shapes that really look meteoritic. And they turn to shale just like an old hu

  10. Yup...the striations bother me. But I live in an extremely volcanic area, with a ton of various types, and forms of obsidian, and Ive seen similar rocks here. That said, who knows for sure. I'd like to see a break on that, though I'm not suggesting you do that...LOL Jim

  11. It is different then what you have posted here before but still not a meteorite. Looks like an old rusted piece of metal. You can use a magnet on it.

  17. I would like to give a big shout out to everyone here since I have been lurking these forums for awhile 😀. Bought a Gold Monster from Bill about a year ago and have been digging up a bunch of trash while learning to use it. Yesterday I found my first bit of shiny and thought I would stop in to say thanks for the inspiration 🍻.
