  1. Who cares .....Im still finding gold with old tech.
  2. Very Nice Tom !! Glad to see your pops getting around
  3. Shoe Goo for boots works very , very well for coil repairs. Otherwise, I`d say you got your moneys worth out of it.
  4. If you are new to dry washing, or a seasoned dry washer , I would shy away from that joke of a contraption. Its not " dustless" I assure you! Find a Keene 140 or 151 . Much simpler of a design, lighter weight, easier to set up etc. I guarantee, there is nothing special about the 160 except the high price, and the two machines I mentioned will do just as good at recovery ( if not better ) when running properly.
  5. About 8 ....The small ones 1/4 inch & under are more common, but the last boulder I was working on , had bigger garnets.
  6. I collected at this locality recently, and found a few ok specimens. There is some debate as to the chemical makeup of the garnets from here. Some say Spessartine and others list it as Almandine. Either way , they are so blood red that they appear to be black. My collecting was limited to using a sledge hammer on the Rhyolite, attempting to expose vugs with Garnets perched inside. The garnets all have attachment points and no free floaters were found. If you decide to collect here, be ware that the road is very rough in spots, and a 4x4 is highly recommended. Heres a couple specimens I found. The largest garnet is 1cm in width.
  7. Massive piece of ribbon gold ! Amazing find !!!
  8. I have a Placer and a Lode consecutive mining claims for sale in Arizona. They cover in total , about 3100 feet of gold bearing ( continual ) creek bed suitable for dry washing. Please contact me Via PM if interested. Serous inquiries only please. Adam
  9. 2 grams a day is totally doable in the right spot for dry washing. Didnt you buy a claim, and you havent found one gram on it yet?
  10. I hear ya man. Yesterday I climbed over a barbed wire fence. I got to the top with one leg over each side, achieving that perfect balance. I sat there for a minute to think about the predicament I was in. Looking down at the 1-1/2 foot fall was more than my mind could take. Not something I`d want to experience again. I`m glad you highlighted the dangers of this hobby.
  11. Looking at the photo, yes those appear to be Schorl Tourmaline crystals
  12. Its Goethite after pyrite. I remember there being a post about this a long time ago. The specimens posted are just heavily weathered, they had sharp crystal faces at one time.

  17. Hey , its to bad no one has responded to your post. You are in a perfect position ( being in Wittmann) for some great gold prospecting ! Welcome to the forum and I look forward to your future posts.....Even if no one else seems to care.
  18. Heck yeah you could! I know a guy that likes to video other peoples private nugget hunting areas without them knowing, then put them up on YouTube Maybe I should do that too
  19. Whats a part 107 license, and why does it matter? And BTW Bill when I click an add link , it doesent open a new window , rather it closes yours and jumps to the linked page.
  20. News Flash! You are not allowed to say Black Powder anymore
  21. Do not get lured into the idea you have to go and spend 800.00 on new coils to find gold. Your 11" & 14" mono will find gold if you get over the gold. You have to be over gold before you have any chance at finding it. As for your vlf`s .... The Fisher Gold Bug II and the Minelab Gold Monster 1000 are likely going to be your top choices for specimen gold ( i have not used the Whites 24K so I do not have an opinion on it, regarding specimens) The edge on specimen gold will go to the Fisher gold bug II .
  22. Out by Casa Grande Mountain I dumped two 5 gallon buckets of old self collected mineral specimens that I did not have room for any longer. Someday someone will find them, and will be confused as to where they came from.
  23. That gold is so sexy !! Thanks for sharing the awesome finds Dave !
  24. Yes, the Southwestern Prospectors & Miners Association ( http://www.spma-gold.org/pages/join.html ) is likely your best bet. They certainly did , and still may have several claims in the Potholes district. If I recall they used to have an outing there every November.....
