  1. Bates has tactical boots on Amazon.
  2. LOL Doc is a master and very successful Detectorist. He's been a Minelab Dealer for years.
  3. Doc, you seem to come up with great ideas all the time. This one is superb.
  4. 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
  5. I just received this email! American-Made White's Metal Detectors View this email in your browser
  6. White's GM3 Goldmaster for sale $300 shipped lower 48 states. Works as it should.
  7. 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/
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Dude, I think you are wrong. Maybe you should go do some research? Someone lied to you.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. Here is a "Fisher" ad on page 33 in the 1990 Silver & Gold issue of Western & Eastern Treasure Magazine
  16. 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/
  17. 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/
  18. 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/
  19. 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.
  20. 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!
  21. 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. .
  22. 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
  23. 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 t
  24. 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.
