  1. LOL Doc is a master and very successful Detectorist. He's been a Minelab Dealer for years.
  2. Doc, you seem to come up with great ideas all the time. This one is superb.
  3. Since White's factory is shutting down, I spoke to Todd at the factory today, since I have a GMT there for repairs. They will still do repairs for the next 2 weeks; then, if you have a detector that needs repairs you will have to send it to: White’s East Service Center Centreville Electronics 9437 Main Street Manassas, VA 20110 (888) 645-0202 (703) 367-7999 Fax: (703) 367-0868 bobnpaul@centrevilleelectronics.net www.centrevilleelectronics.net I would still call the factory first, just to be safe! Best wishes to all! snakejim
  4. I just received this email! American-Made White's Metal Detectors View this email in your browser Important Information from White's Electronics June 18, 2020 To our valued White's Dealers- This is a very difficult message to write, but the time has come for retirement from White's Electronics. We are suspending manufacturing operations at our Sweet Home facility while we re-evaluate the future of the company. It is never easy to make these decisions, however, we are faced with the reality of intense competition in the industry and ongoing counterfeit instruments coming from China. Lastly, there have been critical material shortages since the Covid 19 shutdown that we now find insurmountable. All of us here in Sweet Home are grateful for your service. We consider each you part of the White's extended family. Sincerely, Ken White American Made Metal Detectors since 1950 sales@whiteselectronics.com • 1-888-666-6121 Copyright © 2016.

  5. White's GM3 Goldmaster for sale $300 shipped lower 48 states. Works as it should.
  6. Keith has been around for years. Check him out if you have an older detector that needs work or you need an extra coil. http://brokendetector.com/
  7. Neat area! I was there years ago. Have friends in Lander. I did find some nice gold. Nothing large, but I didn't throw it back. Larger coils will go deeper, but they lose sensitivity to the smallest pieces. Smaller coil finds the smaller bits, but don't go as deep.
  8. I have a claim with a small creek on it and I am going to use it as a "Historical Mining Classroom". I will be teaching anyone who has an interest in mining, the old timer's ways. I need to build a Rocker exactly like one of these in these photos.
  9. Dude, I think you are wrong. Maybe you should go do some research? Someone lied to you.
  10. Pro: It's an excellent detector for ease of use and good sensitivity. Perfect for covering a lot of ground such as relic hunting, meteorites, coins, nugget hunting, etc. Con: The larger 11" coil won't be very sensitive for the tiny pieces of gold.
  11. It's not so bad if there is a surviving spouse or other heir to the estate. A friend of mine had one of his partners die and can't find an heir. I assume he can pay the maintenance fee this year in lieu of doing the maintenance fee waiver? There is a process where you have to place an ad in the local newspaper and run it for a certain period of time, asking for someone to claim the estate. If "No show", then more "BS" follows.
  12. I have hunted them down each year to sign the waiver, and it's a bit of a pain. If one of them dies, it's a nightmare!
  13. You can't claim 40 acres yourself. You can only file a claim for 20. You can get 40 if you have a partner to claim the other 20. You can have up to 7 partners + yourself=8 x 20 acres=160 as one claim called an association placer claim. Sorry, but you have to take partners to get larger than a 20 acre claim.
  14. Here is a "Fisher" ad on page 33 in the 1990 Silver & Gold issue of Western & Eastern Treasure Magazine
