  1. "INTERESTING".......... It looked like the smoke (?) was like a cloud bank shifting from left to right across the wash as you where walking up toward your detector. Where those nuggets on bedrock, or just on hardpack???? The big one looked like it was almost a foot deep??? Yea, I got me a GoPro 7 and it works great,...........except today when I tried to use it and discovered that I had not charged the battery enough the last time Rrrrrrr
  2. Hey Luke,.... when you are walking up the wash videoing ...is that smoke that you are walking up toward,..or are you so high up that you are in a cloud??? Nice finds there...Gary
  3. Well, ....it turned out that the signal that I got on this video was just a chunk of iron stone-hot rock,...but the two nuggets pictured actually "did' come from this wash-location,..but at an earlier date "before" I actually started to consider videoing my ventures. If you like the video Subscribe to my YouTube Channel, and I will try to fumble-thru a few more to try to help anyone who may be trying to figure out "where" to look for gold nuggets.. Thanks for viewing,........Gary
  4. THANKS everyone for the comments, ...and for viewing my video. I am still experimenting trying to coordinate detecting and videoing . Thanks also to those who Subscribed to my YouTube channel . Gary
  5. I have been trying to upload a few video's, and this forum won't allow me to do so. It always comes back with: "1 file was larger than the maximum file size of 511MB, and was skipped"............What is up with that???????????? I know "Others" have uploaded lengthy-videos many times; I think mine is only about 5-minutes at the most. Do I need to upload from my YouTube Channel, or can I just upload from my computer at home???? Any help would be appreciated. Gary
  7. Well today I decided to prospect a bit differently, as opposed-to toting and swinging one of my metal detectors. The only tools that I brought and used was a pair of tweezers, a blow tube, my camera, and my "Eagle-eyes". I wanted to spot them with my naked-eyes (this maybe?? challenging for some). I hadn't been to this wash for months, since way before this winter came into the Prescott / lynx Creek area. Due to all the snow/rain storms over this winter all of the dirt roads have been too muddy-gumbo to travel on. I soon discovered that much of the (previous) exposed bedrock sections had been covered over with lite-weight sand and gravel; but there where still a few stretches still exposed. So, ....getting down on my hands and knees (with knee pads I might add), and slowly crawling along, I commenced to "Eye-Ball-Prospect" the remaining exposed bedrock for those elusive nuggets, and /or flakes. Well, as my photo's show I ended up with nine, the biggest being a little picker that I am sure my detector would have sounded off on had I swung the coil over it. One photo shows both tweezer ends pointing to two (very small) nuggets at one time. This little venture also assured me that there most likely are larger nuggets in the area to be detected. ...........On a side-note: Check out my YouTube Channel at: ARIZONA GOLD NUGGET VENTURES; click on the SUBSCRIBE button, and ring the bell to view some of my video's where I video and explain "Where" the most-likely places for gold nuggets would be out in the gold fields. Gary
  8. Nice looking gold Luke,....should have let me know and I could have brought in the Z-7000 to go real deep for ya. Maybe all these rains will help ya out as well. Gary
  9. Would you consider selling just the detector and upper shaft for $500.00??

      "Roger"-that,....My better-half informed me that I should sell my Z-7000 before getting another detector anyway.

  10. Hey Allen J,...Check out my YouTube Channel at: ARIZONA GOLD NUGGET VENTURES,... as maybe some of my "Where to look for gold" suggestions may be of help to you in your pursuit of those 1 Gram and larger nuggets. Gary
  11. Hey, nice looking nuggets Andy,....Three miles to get to these???? "WOW" Sounds like the day I had today, but I didn't find anything;...You may have to get you a "Burroooooo" ..........Gary
  12. Yea Doc,...over the years of being in "search-mode" for Arizona nuggets, added accessories like your cuff cover are but a luxury-item to me where in the past, comfort and padding has been overlooked in favor of get-tough-and get used-to-it. But I'm "Styl'n" now!!!! Gary
  13. Hey, COOL VIDEO!!! I like your Arizona-Title page, and how you merged up-beat music along with it (makes the viewer feel as though he is right along with you on your adventure)...pretty professional job. And as for the Gold,...it's kind of amazing just how much gold is left behind (for any number of human-error-reasons) by those who have swung the "many"--upgraded models of detectors over an area for many years, ....as they come to the conclusion that the area is worked out?!? HMmmmmm I just posted my very-first video as well, and I can see that compared to yours, there's a lot I will need to learn when it comes to special effects (having a creative title page, adding music. etc., etc.). But I am new to this UTUBE-thing, so it may take me a while. Good Job anyway. Gary
  14. I thought I'd try to upload one of my first video's on "Where" the "Most-likely"" places to locate Gold Nuggets with a metal detector can be found. This may, or may not work; ... if it does, let me know What you think of it,..............was it helpful for those who haven't quite found a nugget with a detector as yet??? Gary Ferret-Out.AVI
  15. Well, I installed Doc's(Doc's Detecting Supply) New Arm Cuff Cover on my detector today and took it out for a spin in one of the gold areas here in Arizona. I will say that it fits very snugly, is made of strong-durable material, with an adjustable arm strap, and is an added improvement (comfort-wise) to the worn-out cover that I was using. I don't know if any of you out there are like me, but I bought my Minelab GP-3000 new in 2004 and have never replaced the cover(as my photo's reflect). I have had to sew it up a couple of times over the years just to keep it from coming off. So, if the Arm Cuff Cover on your SD/GP/GPX detector is due for replacement due to it having very-little-to-no padding (as mine was) take a look at Doc's latest post entitled: FRESH OFF THE BOAT! Do you have an SD/GP/GPX? to get more specific details on this great addition (his photo's are much better than mine too ). "THANKS" Doc... Gary
  16. Hey Doc,...I'll try one of them out as well : "I have an SD/GP or GPX and I lay claim to Doc's new Nugget Stalkerâ„¢ Model #SPX Cuff Cover." I'll give it a good run over here in Arizona. Gary
  17. Was out yesterday hunting a wash that I have most-recently started calling, "Hammer-N-Chisel" wash ,....why??? because at least four of the nuggets that I have gotten out of it I have had to literally (and physically) hammer and chisel them right out of the semi-solid bedrock just to get to them!!!!! Each of these where down 4-6" deep within the bedrock itself, and as much as I had to chisel away at each spot, it didn't appear to me that they had drifted down to that spot to lodge themselves there. I believe that they were within the bedrock all along, and that the movement of boulders, rocks, and rushing flood waters over time had wore away enough of the bedrock for my coil to pickup a signal. Ironically, each of the four nugget-spots were right on the very edge of a bedrock waterfall (or within 4"-or-so) of the edge of it before it dropped off ( these were located at 4-different waterfalls, or bedrock-drop-offs). I also came across a 5th Hammer-N-Chisel situation yesterday as well that I was not even able to chip out due to the hardness of the solid bedrock!!! I chiseled like a maniac ( or like I was getting paid for it!?!) for what seemed like for ever, and got almost 3" of mixed hard rock out in chunks. All along I was chipping and scraping a blood-red rock material out,..but was getting nowhere with it. I hit my thumb once and the chisel became dull,............so it's still there. The nugget above the dime is the one I chiseled out,...the second photo shows a slight grayness in color (on the other side of the same nugget) from the bedrock that was "glued" to it. The other two nuggets (below it and to it's right) I dug up about 5' downstream of it on the same downward-sloping bedrock. This nugget that I chiseled out was an "Indicator Nugget", and I have found that it's most-always a good idea to detect (and/or uncover) the bedrock ( if it drops down under the overburden) 3-to-4 ft downstream of it to see if other nuggets have slipped down beyond-where that Indicator nugget was found,.......it has worked for me many times. Gary "YaHoooooooooooooo!!"
  18. Yea, I sorta overlooked mentioning that a hammer would also come in handy,...........well, I now have two hammers and two chisels ready to go ,.....I have two different backpacks that I use, depending if I also carry a shovel or not. Gary
  19. Well Hello Luke,... I think you're SD-2300 would have done well in this area,....I think it's a bit more sensitive to small nuggets than my 3000. Gary
