  1. Youtube has 6 videos by Jimmy Sierra going over the GMT
  2. Grumpy dog, why did you post on my Classified add if you were not going to make an offer? 

  3. Free to good home - 50+ years of GSA and AAPG bulletins http://arizonageology.blogspot.com/2016/05/free-to-good-home-50-years-of-gsa-and.html
  4. I new this was a touchy subject. This is a small community when you really look at it. I was just bored and thinking out loud in a computer age way. As to monetary worth. i do not know how many books I have purchased from good souls (some on these Forum) over the years. They in essence are doing what I suggested. Just not as specific. Glad to see the humor injected in this. I was grinning when I typed it. Thanks All
  5. I am sitting here doing research after detecting this morning. A crazy ideal came into my head. Probably because I get bored reading those reports, going thru magazine archives etc. I am sure this will start a firestorm and am hesitant to suggest it. Oh well here goes. Some of you who can no longer go in the field might make some good cash selling GPS coordinates to Patch locations. Now before you blow up,here me out. I would not think it right selling those that still have partners still hunting them. I am sure there are some that only one person knows of that keeps getting replenished with storms and such. Like one of Bills stories where a friend passed leaving Bill a "Box" when he cleaned out his trailer. Anyway, sometimes situations arise where people could use some folding money. This is one way to get it. I know whats coming. Find your own patches. Do your own research. i get that. But I am bored and sometimes cannot help but stir the pot a bit.
  6. Thanks for all the help. El Dorado, i did the Special balance as suggested. Andy, I pulled the Cover off just to make sure it was clean. Nugget108, Ahorton, that was the first thing I checked. They were OK as far as i could tell. I took it out and played with the Sensitive extra and Smooth settings. Better results. Tried the Gain 6 to 11. The adjusted the Stabilizer till the threshold was smooth. worked way better. Detected around, In a few spots i had to increase Tracking. Ran on Slow and extra Slow At the end of the hunt, I put it in High Mineral with factory settings. Everything worked today,just fine for the hot ground I was in. Found lots of trash, at least I cleaned it up a bit for the next detector. I still want to try the DD coil when it gets back from Minelab. Now i need to put some gold under it. McGump may have it right about the F-22s
  7. Anyone have settings that work well in the Little San Domingo wash area. I tried a spot today with tons of hot rocks and could not get the Machine to settle down.I would Ground Balance it , sometimes it would settle down, then go nuts when i start swinging (slow). Tried Tracking and Fixed. I changed timings, Lowered gain (6), adjusted stabilizer up and down, tried all three tracking speeds. Made adjustments one at a time. Tried high Mineral setting Salt, Sens Smooth, Normal etc. Checked connections etc. I have the Commander Mono coil that came with the 4500 package on it. Maybe the DD coil would be a better choice? I am new to the PI machine and would like to be able to work areas with hot rocks. I had no problems in the Rich Hill area. Thanks in advance.
  8. I got my State Trust Land permit online today https://land.az.gov/recreational-permit-portal Better than in person!
  9. Howdy Bill. Tim Hibbs here. 

    Thanks for a great forum with loads of info. I got out of prospecting 20 years ago to raise the family. They are out of the house and doing fine. Getting close to retirement and slowly back into enjoying the outdoors and finding some color. I belong to Road Runner and am joining GPAA again. If I see you out there, I will introduce myself and Thank You in person.

    Good Health to You.


  10. possible Info for field exploration. Some nice explanations for types of deposits. I do not claim to understand it. just passing it along. Landsat ETM+ and ASTER satellite imagery to remotely identify areas of potentially mineralized lithologies. http://data.nbmg.unr.edu/Public/CREG/StudentTheses/Cramer_DNWR_UNRMS2014.pdf
  11. Swamp, I am in California training. When I get home (this weekend) I will scan the maps and PM them to you.
  12. When I paid this year, I was told of some funds missing. Dan said A miner came up with the Claim fees for this year. The deal was for exclusive rights to part of a claim. Don't remember which one. I have it on the map. I checked and fees are paid though this year for claims on the map Dan gave me.I printed them out to have on hand when prospecting. I too hope they get it straightened out. Lots of fun to be had on those claims.It would be ashamed to loose them.
  13. Swamp The area (valley) is where the Cemetery is. You cannot drive to the Cemetery anymore, or the Claims in that area. I worked on many open pit mines in Arizona and Nevada. Once they get started, they do not care about claims or claim owners. They are looking at the bottom line. Insurance is bad enough without someone suing them for injury while crossing private active mining property. Then there is the curious that will walk up on heavy equipment while it is working. I do not hold a grudge against them. I am just trying to get to those claims as safe as possible. Maybe the users of the Claims in there will get together and clear a decent path. Until then I will hike it or catch a ride when I can. I have a Jeep, but will not tear it up for my hobby. I am in this for the fun and adventure. not the $$$. Although I would not mind finding a nice one or hitting the Lottery. Thanks for all the input. Good luck to all. P.S. if you see a green jeep parked at the dynamite shack area, I will be up in there somewhere. Say howdy if you see me detecting. Tim Hibbs
  14. I did not go up there (to Hot). Next trip, I will hike it and post it's condition. It looks rough from the main road. I will contact the County and see what recourse we have.If anyone has contact info of the patented land owners please post it. I would contact them to work out a solution. They may have had vandalism. I have had issues with Ranchers blaming everyone for the sins of a few. With this economy it has been an issue with our construction equipment.
