    I've slowed down tremendously, but haven't quit.
    Right now I'm "wired for sound" for the next 30 days, doing the chest monitor B.S.
    I tried to raise a smile on ya with the kick the bucket !

    Frank, hope your ticker gets better dude !!! I hope you havent quit.... The nugget you just found is HUGE !!! Congrats...


  2. Congrats on your 4500... its a good machine. Lots to learn on it. I had a 2200, then upgraded to a 5000, now using a 7000. When I was hunting the Johnnie area near Pahrump in Nevada, using the 5000, I would use sensitive extra 99% of the time, fixed ground balance, search mode deep, use mono coils. There is more, but you adjust to your liking.  Good luck hope it finds you some good gold.

    Will any Blue tooth headset work with this one Dave?



      These are not bluetooth, so no.  There is the option to buy the transmitter and receiver so you can use your own headphones with a 1/4" headphone jack, or the company also sell their own transmitter, and headphones in which you have to use their headphone only.

  4. Bill,

      I have the Quest Wirefree Mate- Wireless Transmitter and Receiver. Its 2.4 Ghz Freq, not bluetooth,  and the latency is .06 seconds. I think the Equinox built in latency is .40 seconds.

    There are youtube videos on it... you have to order online, dont think bestbuy has them

  5. There is a strewn field map of the area, held by certain old time meteorite hunters. A lot of videos on the area were removed back in the day when the blm was threatening regulations/ taxing meteorites, and there was even a raid on a certain meteorite dealer. Since all that happened years ago, its been tight lipped since.

    WTG Dave.  Did you get meteorites too?

    I'm a bit fond of the area and so was Montana as this was near where he found his first nuggets.


    Thanks Mitchel,

      No meteorites, this area has never produced any meteorites that I know of. It's way away from Franconia area.


  7. Hey everyone,

       Got out Sunday to do some prospecting with my buddy Chris. We did a little research and decided to go to a new location east of Lake Havasu, AZ. 

      Upon detecting a wash, my detector hit a signal and nearly blasted my ears off. I looked down to find 2 dowsing rods laying in the wash. Right next to the dowsing rods were some pretty fresh looking nuggets just laying there as shown in the picture. The person dowsing must have thrown the rods down in disappointment upon seeing their newly found wealth these brought. 🤣😉.

      All in all it was a good day, with approx 1/4 ounce finds in a new area. 

    Until next time,
