  1. Just snooping around in a new area, not expecting much, when I stumbled into this lump right in the middle of the wash. Not quite an overload signal on the 4500, but really loud. I am pretty sure a Walmart $99 detector would have found it. Maybe 6" down, and in the most obvious spot in the wash. I have no idea how the last 50 guys to walk up this wash missed it, but I'll take it! Most of the specimen is worn somewhat smooth, but one side clearly broke off something larger. The edge is so sharp and fragile that I broke a tiny piece of gold off with my tounge giving it the mouth-wash out of

  2. Here is one where I cut the 4” at a 45 and just rotate your cut and glue it back together. I reduce it to a 3” on the intake plus put bolts across to keep large rocks out . It’s not going to win a beauty contest but as long it works for you. Chuck

  3. Hi. Greenhorn, (kinda), here. Is there a fee for joining up on this website or forum? I would like to join up with y’all when you have a metal detecting outing for the new year 2021. My husband just gave me my early Christmas present today. I have a new Minelab Vanquish 440!!! 😱😍🥰😁😁

  4. Like all mining companies, they are paying claim fees. They also have employees who pay income taxes, property taxes and local and state sales taxes. The whole point of this thread is that some, including those proposing these royalties, think taking money away from one person and giving it to another (redistributing wealth) and creating layer upon layer of bureaucracy is how the US government should operate. Others think cutting taxes and regulations help businesses grow, innovate and create private sector jobs.

  7. Thanks! I found this in a group of flat rocks, on bedrock, but in relatively loose overburden. Most of the gold I find here is like that, just sitting there. Very few pieces have come out of what looks like ancient clay, or a deep crack. Regards, Kyle

  8. Very nice. The rest of it may still be on the bank slightly above. Good Luck I hope you find more!

  9. This is PVC going from a 4 to a 3”because most places you dredge will require it to be neck down to a 3” . This is fixed for a jet are suction nozzle. The dredge I make is nothing you’ve seen before but works great for me . Cheap to make but don’t get hollow core because solid core will last longer. If you’re getting it in 4foot they will have a sign above it saying what is what. Chuck

  13. Thanks Bob You just proved my point. Nothing is yours. You simply want a piece of someone else's pie, and you want to hire some bureaucrats to go get it for you. Nobody is asking for a cut of the wild game you take off public property. Nobody wants a piece of the bottles or cactuses you have collected and nobody has insisted that you go clean up the broken pieces of glass from the bottles you shot up out there in the NM outback although I think that would be a good idea.

  15. Thanks! There is a bench area (inside bend) a few feet up the wash from where I found this, so I will be going low and slow over that with the NF 17x13" for sure. Regards, Kyle

  22. No don't dump them in the river, you still don't know exactly what you have. If you do have any silver coins, here's a website that will tell you the value of the silver in the coins, A.K.A. "melt value"...but as I mentioned you will need to determine the dates on the coins to see if you have any "silver" coins dated 1964 or before, anything after that most likely only have face value. Look for the list of "silver coins value" http://www.coinflation.com/ That being said some silver coins may have much higher collector's value well above the "melt value". the following

  23. Lol.. don't dump them into a river. I'm sure they have value...but perhaps not as much as you expect. Just need to go out and see what kind of offers you get.

  24. The Sacagawea dollar coins are not gold, they are just regular coins just gold colored, they're only worth $1 each. Are you sure the "silver" coins are real silver, can you see any dates on them, most any coins dated after 1964 is not silver?

  25. Didn't you state you had some gold coins? Are those melted into the clumps as well?

  26. I would opt for a local purchase vs dealing with shipping shenanigans. If meeting a private party, do it at a local bank-not at home.

  27. Sorry, Terre, on the mixup. With no idea of where you are in the world it would be hard to rec'd a purchaser. Unless you really need the money, i would hold off. Keep you pile of booty. It should appreciate.

  28. Of course, polishing to remove the burn residue, is only to make them presentable to the shop to accept them as bullion. It does nothing to improve any numismatic value( if there is any.) In fact, if any of the coins are uncirculated, old, or rare, it decreases value. Do not polish those. Any coin dealers in your area, Mr. McPhail?

  29. You could tumble those coins with jewelry tumbling media and probably shine them up good. Anyone with a vibratory brass polishing machine and a charge of stainless steel media could do it in a couple hours. An old fashioned rock tumbler would do it too. I have tumbled some really deteriorated coins and it worked great. Im sure you could find someone close to you that does ammunition reloading that could throw them in with a load of brass and clean them right up. A sonic metal cleaner will do it too. There are special solutions for silver that get the job done fast. Lots of guys hav

  30. Condolences on your loss. https://www.kitco.com/ shows current prices for precious metals. "Spot" price is the current offer price on the market.

  31. You can leave them up. I really doubt the aluminum - baking soda method is going to work on those. Those are in horrific condition.

  32. https://www.everbritecoatings.com/silver_clean.htm#: It's known as the aluminium - baking soda method. Before you try this, you should leave the single silver coins alone since they could be worth silver spot plus thus worth more. It would be interesting to see if this method would work on clumps of coins. I've tried it before but not on clumps.

  33. Leave the "patina" on the whole coins. Sell the melt for spot(- margin) to a pawn shop or other.

  38. I had that happen to me i pulled off the side of 85 between Gila Bend and Buckeye to take a leak and looked down and saw a gold nugget when i picked it up you could see it was shaped like a butterfly , it was ground flat on the back side , near as i could tell maybe a piece of jewelry that fell off or out of a mount it was just under 1/4 oz.

  41. Just my two cents This would also pertain to culverts. They are particularly popular to mine. That said there is not a public right of way police. I would say that this would go pretty much un noticed by any public law enforcement agency unless perhaps you were tearing the place up.
