  1. For the folks that have never been to Gold Basin, I made up these signs to help get you to camp. Remember this is dry camping and you must bring all your needs. also there is no fire wood to be had in the area, so if we all bring a little we should have pleanty. Make sure a respond to the poll as that is how we will plan for enough chow on Sat evening. So far the long range weather is looking real good, highs in the mid 80's and lows mid 50's, we are still a month out so this could change.


  2. Hi Reg, I remember that day well at the 24K and I was not able to hear those nuggets, must have been someone else. I was fairly new at that time and was running a 3500. I Was very surprised at not being able to hear them for the size they were.

    The things you learn along the way! Thanks everyone!


  3. Hey YF, I hunt the Bradshaws quite a bit in the summer months. PNF, generaly allows detecting as casual use. This is the PH# 928-443-8000. There are a lot of claims but both Roadrunners and GPAA have claims up this way. There is allways the public panning area below Lynx Lake. Trash, seems to be part of the charm of the Bradshaws, both moderen and old...Still pleanty of gold, you just have to work a little harder at it these days. Have you tried out around Rich Hill? The Weaver club is cheap to join and has some pretty good claims. Bill is throwing a outing at Gold Basin later this month, allways a lot of fun. Hope this helps.


  4. Hi all:) Real life intervened in '91 or so and sold all my stuff. I'm back with an sd2200 and a MXT...and having fun around Yuma. Havent found any gold yet but wondering WHY!!?? I ever gave it up. Been ghosting this forum awhile and seems like a good crew here...besides I wanna see the pics lol. Was very sorry to hear about Daryl of Reno prospectors supply passing on...he was my first mentor in metal detecting and and very patient with me when I asked for advice. This was back in the late 80's.

    Once you got the fever, you got it, welcome back! You could meet lots of the folks here on the forum if you were to host a campout/get together in the Yuma area. Allways liked the Yuma area.


  5. The thing with drywashing, you are not running the machine all day. Where we work, we have to throw a lot of rocks to work up some material to run. Even if you have bank run material, you have to stop and clean up often. We run ours on a real small car battery and it lasts for days.
