  1. Jim, I found this magazine article a few minutes ago. I remember meeting you in the Dale District about 1988. Here's a link to a pdf file of Desert Magazine 1976. There is an article starting on page 28 that I think you would enjoy reading. Sure brings out some good memories. http://mydesertmagazine.com/files/197602-DesertMagazine-1976-February.pdf Best wishes to you and all the forums members. Rattlesnake Jim New Mexico P.S. We found some nice nuggets thereabouts.
  2. Very nice! You had a great day!
  3. Bill, as you stated; knowledge is power. Doing one's homework and research is the key to being successful. Jim Straight is a virtual encyclopedia of knowledge on mineral deposits and mining, and I thank him for sharing his knowledge with us. .
  4. Jim, thanks for the undeserved complement. I don't get on the forums as often as I used to. But, I do enjoy reading the posts and helping folks when I can. RSJ
  5. Nice work! They should sell easily.
  6. Hi Jim! I was re-reading your book "Successful Drywashing" last night. It was nice to see photos of some of the old timers that I had met over the years. I'll never forget meeting ole Dowie Critenden out in the Dale District back about 1988. I was with Woody Woodworth and Jack Ward. Dowie had his little dry washer with him. Time sure seems to go by faster as we get older. Re-reading your book "Advanced Prospecting and Detecting for Hard Rock Gold", hoping to glean some info from it to aid in my search for overlooked veins and pockets here in New Mexico. I hope you are doing well. Best wishes to you and yours! Jim Sumrow aka:Rattlesnake Jim or snakejim Roswell, NM
  7. Charles Garret who along with his wife started Garret Metal detectors in 1964, Passed on 4/3/2015. Sad news indeed. First time I ever tried nugget hunting was at Quartzite with a Garrett Deepseeker. It worked, I found several nuggets.
  8. Sorry to hear of your loss. There are some darn sorry folks out there.
  9. Chris, that wire gold sure is pretty. Keep up the good work. RSJ
  10. Read the manual again and again. In the prospecting mode with the tracking on, it should be running smooth. You may need to reset the programs back to factory settings. See pages 46 and 47 in the manual.
  11. It's alive! I'm glad you are still around John B. I hope all is well with you and yours. Rattlesnake Jim Roswell, NM
