  1. Have a stack of like new classifiers from 1/2" down to 100 mesh (gnat poop) in addition to a couple gold pans up for sale. I'll take $40 for everything. Call/text Gary @ 623-363-5333 if interested. I'm at 71st ave. & Union Hills in NW Glendale for P/U.
  2. Same guy that put the bear trap out there also put the egg out there. Suppose to be some sort of artsy fartsy BS about how all the illegals suffer when they illegally cross the border.
  3. Sporting clays and golf. I'll be back out detecting once summer is over. I can only feed a couple addictions at a time.
  4. Tom, judging by your photo, it appears to be a .50-70 benet primed cartridge.
  5. Holy Crap! That is some awesome gold! Good job Tom & Tom!
  6. What's the difference between a "hobby miner" and a "small miner"?
  7. Another good rant courtesy of Bill... nice wordsmithing. Just for s**ts and giggles, I pulled up some geology maps of the Barstow area and I could only find a couple places that would be of interest to me in prospecting. Given the communist state of CA, those areas I would prospect are probably off limits anyway. Glad I'm in AZ... I've got enough areas to prospect right in my own back yard to last me for a lifetime.
  8. That's kinda what I've been doing lately is prospecting on the fringes of known gold bearing areas hoping to find that wash or hill side that is still virgin. I haven't been at it all that long, so I've still got plenty to learn and still have to pay my dues so to speak. That's one of the major reasons I got a Rokon, just so I could get to those places where either nobody has been, or if they have, it's been a very long time. I'll find me something sooner or later. 90% of the fun I have is just getting out and exploring those "virgin" areas.
  9. Apparently "rich" by today's standards. I'm wondering where the Lynx creek, Cherry Creek, Oak Creek, Turkey Creek, Poland Creek, etc. etc. type placers are. Back in the day they were easily producing an OZ or better per ton. There's gotta be some rich ground still out there somewhere. I know the old timers were pretty thorough, but I don't think they got everything.
  10. At least you guys are making wages. Not a bad haul at all. I'm just wondering where in the hell did all the rich placers go. They still gotta be out there somewhere. Did the old timers really do that good of a job cleaning things up?
