  1. Congrats on a Great Find Eric....
  2. Hey everyone... Now weather is getting much better, I got a chance to visit a place I havent been to in a while. Franconia, AZ meteorite strewn field. I met up Saturday morning with a buddy Greg. Greg ended up getting the large complete crusted Chondrite and large iron meteorite on the right, I found the smaller 3 chondrites and irons on the left.... Franconia's always a fun place to visit. A lot of large basalt (hot rocks), .50 cal bullets, .30 cal bullets, wire, ect out there, but after an hour or 2 of adjusting my hearing to the tones, you start to hear the differences between trash
  3. Happy birthday Shep.... have a great day !!!
  4. Clay, I should have reworded that sorry... there really is no small repeater per say. But what you can do is either attach your phone to your drone, and send a text, then send the drone up as high as you can, hopefully it can send out the text, and receive texts if there is a tower its able to hit. Or attach your phone to the drone, then tether an old phone down below via bluetooth/ wifi to make data calls, or texts.. It beats hiking to the top of a hill or mountain... Dave
  5. Max, I have been using a drone for 2 years now. The technology is improving on each new release. I just recently purchased the new DJI Mavic Air 2, and love it. Flight time is 30 minutes, has a 4k camera, its range is a few miles, ect. Im using it more and more on sending it out to scout out prospecting locations to hunt. I ran into another prospector out near Ivanpah Nevada, and he was about to hike up a steep hill to get to some interesting looking mine workings almost at the top of the hill. I told him, I will send the drone to scout it out. When the drone flew up there, the mine was

  8. Thank you Bob, Its a nice area, very remote, all the times we have been there, have not run into or saw one person... Dave
  9. Hi Dakota, Thank you... No I didnt feel any. I did not get as far up near tonopah where some of the damage occured. The roads were good as of last weekend, at least to almost goldfield. They must have repaired the roads, as there were a lot of cars, trucks, rv's ect going north. Dave.
  10. Thanks Tom, were still kinda new to the area, only been at this place a half dozen times over the last 5 years, but think were gonna start getting out a lot more to the area... Man love your 1.25 oz piece, really nice !!! Dave
  11. Thank you Ol Tom.... I agree, those cicadas make some noise !!!
  12. Hi Au, Just correlated you to your youtube name MeGoldSeeker... Thanks for the input... I have seen these cicada nymphs before digging, but never knew what they were... Thank you for the info... Dave.
  13. Hey everyone, Me and Chris got out last weekend to do some prospecting on the outskirts of Goldfield, Nevada. We have been doing pretty well in this area, but there is also a lot of trash. We had to stick mostly to the sidebanks of the washes to get away from the trash. After digging a few huge holes for square nails, we got pretty tired fast...🥵 but pulled some nice gold out of the ground. Well until the next time, Dave

  15. Stillweaver, Yes once line of sight is lost your transmission is significantly reduced....
  16. Max, I use a drone a lot when out doing videos and prospecting, they come in pretty handy getting the lay of the land. Ill put a link in bottom to the video where I sent a drone down a mine shaft, but I had to get out, didnt want it crashing down the shaft. I just got a new drone, and love it. It is a DJI Mavic Air 2. It has a couple miles range in the open. DJI makes drones with sensors all around so it will not crash into a wall, tree, ect... I think the DJI Mavic 2 Pro would do pretty good going into mine tunnels, shafts, ect... with 360 degree sensors on it to avoid obsticles, and i
  17. Tom H, Some pretty cool stuff collected over the years, especially the bomber door... Were you ever able to get the GPS to work again, could have someones secret gold areas....:) Thanks for sharing.... Dave
  18. Adam... it sure is !!!! , me and Chris call it hybrid gold. In between regular looking gold and the Rye Patch chevron gold.... Dave
  19. Ron, Ive been out there one time and skunked. Some of the good areas that have float gold are claimed up. If I ever do, Ill post it.... Dave
  20. Thank you... There is a lot of places on the outskirts, hills, mountains, of Beatty, Goldfield, Tonopah Nevada. Tons of old mines, trash, artifacts, gold, ect.
  21. Hardtime, Thank you, no we turned off just before getting to Goldfield. I bet the mining companies are gonna get a lot of gold where that road use to go through, would love to see some of those specimens. If you or anyone else get a chance when in Goldfield, talk to Jon Aurich in Goldfield. He runs the Goldfield Historical Society, his gold specimens are out of this world, along with the artifacts... Dave
  22. Thank you Max, LukeJ, I agree it does get cold there in the winter... That would be neat to find a lamp.... There is tons of ground out there to explore.... Dave
  23. Hey everyone... Myself and a buddy Chris (bsumbdy) got out to an area on the outskirts of Goldfield Nevada last weekend. Had a blast, we found a few things to take back home.... Chris ended up getting 8 grams of gold nuggets, I found the old 1893 silver lined World Fair Spoon, and the 1902 -S- Barber Silver quarter. Also brought home a dinosaur for the backyard, named him Godzilla.. We were able to get a little higher up in the hills to get away from the 100 degree heat from down below.... We brought back some ore that sounded off on the detectors, but need to crush and see whats insi
  24. Love the heart shaped one Frank... great finds...
