  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Dude, I think you are wrong. Maybe you should go do some research? Someone lied to you.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. Here is a "Fisher" ad on page 33 in the 1990 Silver & Gold issue of Western & Eastern Treasure Magazine
  9. This story is of a friend of mine, "Bob Ellithorpe" an equipment operator in Colorado. The rock is on display in the Denver Museum of Natural History and I have personally seen it on display http://pagosasprings.com/the-summitville-141-oz-gold-boulder/
  10. The Roadrunner Prospector's club had several good claims years ago. I would imagine that they still do. https://www.roadrunnergold.com/ https://www.roadrunnergold.com/membership-information/
  11. You lucky gringo! Glad to see you are still around.
  12. Looking for a partner that would like to look for Meteorites near Roswell, New Mexico. There have been a lot of them found near Portales by a mailman., Skip Wilson. http://meteorite.unm.edu/meteorites/meteorite-museum/new-mexico-meteorites/
  13. Probably a hog nosed snake. They have a turned up nose that they use as a shovel to dig spade foot toads out of the dirt.
  14. Rattlesnake Jim or snakejim here. Been a few years since I was on this forum. Just signed up yesterday! It's neat to see the folks that I knew long ago are still around. Best wishes to you folks!
