  1. Jason, I tried the lid test and it produced black streaks, that's a neat little test. Thanks Jim, Yes, it does have the properties of #289 (magnetite), It can attract the head of a pin. It also looks physically like #277 to me (hematite), from what I understand so far those 2 can go hand in hand. Well guys, I looks like I found my first magnetite rock! It is interesting. Thanks for the help and the great website. Tony Teixeira
  2. Here is a rock I found in a patch, being new to rocks I Googled to see if I could find something similar, but had no luck. This piece flys to my magnet and sticks well, it is heavier than other rocks it's size in that area and is the only one I found with my detector in that patch. Can anyone help identify? Thanks Tony Teixeira
  3. lol... That's real funny Steve! Tony
  4. I know this is Bigboy62's thread but it was something I was interested in for I too am looking for a lower end GPS, after reading Steve's suggestion on the Delorme GPS's I checked out the PN-20 and found it will suffice my needs, then when Boorx4, DigDeep and Herb said they like the PN-40, I figured Delorme must make decent handhelds so I bought the PN-20..... plus if Steve recommends it, I knew he did his homework. Now Coyoteslayer, if that Garmin could have wiped my butt I would have gone that route, yep, I would had. By the way the PN-20 with TOPO maps, street maps, 1 GB SD card and incl
  5. Bigboy62, I hear you, I too want something basic but with maps, but I also want to be able to import my data into Google Earth, I know Google Earth supports Garmin and a few Magellan devices but has anybody ever sucessfully converted the export data from a Delorme 20 and imported into Google.... I heard I could simply export your data to a .gpx file and open in Google Earth, can anyone verify? Thanks Tony Teixeira
  6. Heck, I will trade my BB's for your .43 anyday. You know I really need to get a Quad too, not as much to get me to places to hunt but so I can have fun riding when I get skunked. Congrats on that 1/2 ouncer...WOO HOO! Tony Teixeira
  7. Garimpo, Now that's funny! My coffee almost made it out my nose. Tony Teixeira
  8. Hey Guys, Everybody says I got fried! I tan up real fast but I did overdue it. I do know I had a great time, I always do! Sure it's always nice to find gold but I really just enjoy my time off from the every day hustle and bustle of working in the city and spending time with friends, meeting new people and "BS"ing. You know I am sure I passed over gold in the first patch but I made commitment to myself to only dig the sweet sounding targets with my DD coil and running discrimination, I know...I know, "dig all targets", but I had much fun playing and learning. I must congratulate you guys
  9. Cool looking TURD if I do say so myself! Tony Teixeira
  10. LL, That little dink at about 04:00 seems pretty small, running an 11 DD and picking up the small dinks is pretty impressive, what is the weight on the small one? NuggetSlayer, Are you playing with a DD these day's? Coils......we are talking coils! Tony Teixeira
  11. That sure deserves a BIG WOO HOO! I bet it was hard to stop detecting that day! ...just one more target... just one more target. Congrats! and thanks for sharing. Tony Teixeira
  12. LL, So you did pick up a 12x15DD, I have to admit I do love the Commander coils! Congrats to you and your buddy! See you when my control box comes back from Minelab. Tony Teixeira
  13. Rockpup, Call them up and have them email you a RS label, (Return Service) so you don't have to pay for shipping a second time for the same issue. Almost all reputable companies will do this, they will email you a shipping label and all you do is print it, slap it on the box and send it in. Tony Teixeira
  14. Uncle Ron, That sure makes you stop and wonder how that got there for sure, like the machined screw, are the threads SAE or METRIC? is the head slotted, philips, torx or allen? Maybe that will give a clue to the date.....????? As far as that aircraft hydraulic system gizzmo, would'nt that be something to have found the source that brought the jet down? That is some really neat finds. Hope you find and post more. Tony Teixeira
  15. On top of the nuggets I am finding, I am sure meeting a lot of awesome folks and learning quite a bit. El Dorado, Dakota Slim, Uncle Ron, frank c, bill-costa rica, richs, Hawkeye, John Hoser Oates, coyoteslayer and of course LuckyLundy; Thank you all for the CONGRATS! Tony Teixeira
  16. Let me tell you, the other day was one heck of a nugget hunting day, what could go WRONG did go wrong, what could go RIGHT did go right. Lucky Lundy invited me to come out nugget hunting and to droll over Steve's (El Dorado) monster nugget, let me tell you, that thing is unbelievable. I held the nugget, I turned and started towards the door with it then I heard "CLICK", Steve is very fast on the draw, I have no idea where that handgun came from. Well with today's hunt came another adventure and milestone for me, it all started when Lucky Lundy, Steve, Bob (LL's dad) and I ventured to th
  17. Just want to wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Today you too are a true 49er, CONGRATULATIONS! What better day is there to party and celebrate a birthday besides St.Patricks day? If you do decide to go nugget hunting today I hope you find the pot of gold!!!! Just let us know what coil you used. Take care! Tony
  18. Gary? Gary Busey? Is that you? Tony Teixeira
  19. Well my all time favorite coil is the Minelab Commander 8 inch mono. I really like the Commander 11" mono, I am sure El Dorado loves the 11" DD coil since he pulled out that small planet which he calls a nugget. Tony Teixeira
  20. I dont know if I should say HOLY CRAP or HAPPY BIRTHDAY, how about HAPPY CRAP! Geez Steve, You could not asked for a better birthday present! CONGRATS! Once again my hat goes off to Lucky Lundy, he has shared his knowledge, spent time with newbies to help develop their prospecting skills and has even invited many newbies and veterans alike to his patch knowing that everyone who enters the patch will walk away with a special keep sake nugget. I don't know anybody ....anybody at all who would share the wealth as Lucky has, he could have kept the patch all to himself but once aga
  21. Gary, On a serious side, what I would like to see on an upcoming GPX model is a control box with 2 system boards where you could toggle between your GPX board and another board like the E-Trac board so you have 2 systems in one unit, or how about the second board being a VLF board so you could toggle between PI and VLF. Who knows what technology will bring to the prospector in the following years, but I am sure it will be interesting. Take care! Tony Teixeira
  22. I want to share a story with you all that is SOOOOOO amazing that even I have a hard time still believing it: BUT IT'S TRUE! I had the opportunity to try out the new 5000 and it is nothing like you have ever seen, I am not supposed to discuss my findings but it is soooooooo amazing I just have to tell you! There is a new setting called "SENS SMOOTH EXTRA" this works in conjunction with the new SELECT control knob on the front, if you turn the knob clockwise till your threshold warbbles you will be in a new MODE called DIAMOND MODE...... yes, that's right you can now find DIAMONDS!!!! I cou
  23. Technology! It’s amazing! Check this out, this is what is coming down the technology pipe, for those who text message on their phones you can now speak into your phone and it will send it to the recipient as a text message, and if that was not enough now when the recipient receives this text message they can convert it to speech so they can hear it instead of reading it. It's amazing! Just think, one day you will be able to speak into a phone and the person on the other end will be able to hear you! :innocent0009: Tony Teixeira
  24. Those nuggets look like they have more character than the slug style, LOOKING GOOD! At least you have enough for another trip to the casinos. The weather looked the same all day at work, 4 walls and no windows in the server rooms, but others told me it looked nice outside as they feed me. lol Keep posting them nuggets! Tony
  25. It amazing to see how gold looks coming from different areas, those look awesome. I also like your control box cover, is that made out of leather? Tony Teixeira
