  1. Thanks for all the input, it has made for some real interesting reading!

    I gess what started this is I was thinking about All that volcanic cap in the area between Cordes and Black Canyon City. It must be covering up some good gold areas.

    When your self taught, you don't learn if you don't ask questions.


  2. Anyone know of a good example in AZ? Story in the Nov. issue of LT talks about the ancient rivers in CA and I really don't remember a topic about Az and ancient rivers. I saw a place in the Bradshaws But it was more of an up lifted creek, not very big.


  3. Hi All

    The end of prospecting as we know it is very close !! Sad but true !! Happy Huntin John B.

    Hey John, Could you explane the "as we know it" in your post as your pointy finger SEES it.

    Thanks, Bunk

  4. That is a good one for sure! It must be a remote location or it would not still be there.

    I found a 3 stamp on Lynx creek about 10 years ago that had burned down and all that was left was the iron. Was out that way last week and the only thing left now is the concrete foundation.


  5. I thought it was cool also, and I know the old timers looked for vegatation anomaleys to make some good strikes in days gone passed and I have heard of horse tail being something to look for when you are looking for gold.

    I was just trying to be funny. The new age forest service treats you like you commited murder if one blade of grass is harmed in the presuit of mining activities up here around Prescott.

    I found a spot last year that the scrub oak had been pruned a long time ago so it could be metel detected and I am sure if the forest service found this spot there would be an investagation as to who did it. I did find 3 small nuggets at this spot.


  6. I can see it all now... The forest service pulls me over with a load of horse tail in my Rhino and says whats up.. I tell them I figure I have about 1oz. of gold in this 500# of horse tail...

    I just hope JohnB will bring me some cigs while I am weaving baskets in the looney bin.. Oh never mind, they don't allow smoking in the looney bin any more!


  7. No bites,no gold and the tall grass was hard to deal with. I did have a good time and want to thank JohnB for taking the time to show me around. The weather was great. We had to leave earlyer than we planed due to family matters at home. Looking foward to next time!


  8. Anyone know of a Frys or Safeway on the e. side of town that I won't have to much trouble getting the great pumpkin and trailer into? [ 52' ]

    I will be stoping at triple T to get water. Thanks,


    Help me out here guys, thanks.


  9. John, I been taking vitiams all week that are garentied to build your blood up. Also been main lining Deep Woods Off with extra deet, should be all right!

    Does it look like any rain out that way? See you Sat.


  10. Bunk,

    The question is rather wide open............is it for your trailer? house? camper? :innocent0009:

    Is the safe to keep people honest & kids out ? - - - in otherwords a light steel lock box

    Or the monster weighs a ton , and would take a safe cracker to get into?


    Grubstake, Mr Glock must feel naked without its two buddies (two clips) :laught16: I couldn't help myself.....

    Steve, This will be for my new house in Riverside,AZ. As I am working shift work at the mine and am gone at all hours of the day and night I need to be able to keep not just my detectors but other valubles secure. I have been working on this place for the last 3 months and just got moved in last week.

    The last 2 days have been the first time I have been able to relax since I started this project, this house is 100 years old and nobody has lived in it for 15 years, quite a job!


  11. Bill, Hang in there! I been in the same boat kinda. New job, mother in law about to pass on, wife taking care of mother in law and not around to give me a hand remodeling 100 year old house. Not to mention brother and sister in law in the mitst of a nasty divorce that we are trying hard to stay out of.

    No nuggets since Nov.! Things gotta get better soon, I hope. Bunk

  12. Thanks for all the well wishes! My family is real good to me theese days. Tracy has been bugging me to get out and find a nugget as she has not seen a new one since thanksgiving just not much time lately with a new job and mama coming down on the W/E's. I do have a spot to check out today in the area of my wife's family ranch.

    John B, I don't know why you could not see the "Great Pumpkin" unless I was at work, I am right off the Hwy. just before the Mini mart, Horseshoe DR.

    Blake, I hear your father in law went to work for the new Carlotta mine up near Globe. And yes I have been to the area around the depot but need to explore it further.

    Largo, Yep still have the watch, would like to sell but can't find enough info to know what it is really worth, so I have not tried very hard.
