  1. Selling my Minelab GM1000 with extras. Bought new from Doc in February of 2019. Used but in very good condition. Just found out that my fiance and I are in a great position to buy our first home, so my hobbies have to take a seat on the back burner for quite some time while we save up for a down payment. This setup comes with the detector with the 2 coils, Doc's display and armrest cover, 2 plastic scoops, rechargeable battery, AA battery pack, all chargers and parts, Bunks hermit pick, Minelab carry bag, Minelab headphones for the GM1000, a pair of Monster brand headphones (not pictured), Doc's pick and scoop holder with belt, and some white electrical tape to seal out dirt between the coil and cover. Asking for $700. I'm willing to ship but you will be responsible for the shipping cost. I live in Southern California so I'm willing to meet within 50 miles of Rancho Cucamonga. I DO NOT USE PAYPAL.... but I do have Zelle or am willing to work out any other form of payment. PayPal screwed me out of almost $800, so I refuse to use them again. Cash on meeting is always accepted as well. Thank you for looking.
  2. Thank you. Thinking of dropping the price by $100 just to get rid of it. 😁
  3. I have a chance to pick up a SE Pro for $500 or but a new 800. Thoughts?
  4. I am selling a gently used Minelab GPX4500. It has both stock 11" coils, a 14x9 Goldstalker Blitz Mono coil, a NuggetFinder 8x6 Sadie Coil, extra lower shaft, black widow headphones, one of DOC's digging picks, plastic scoop, chargers, AZO Control Box cover, and a Minelab carry bag. Bought in April of 2019 and still has warranty left. Asking for $2000 or best offer for everything. Will post pictures later.
  5. Bill, thank you so much for the reply. Your words helped a great deal in my decision on which attachments to get. I will be headed out tomorrow to get some of the items as I want to use this camera during my training with Mike next weekend. Sorry we won't be able to meet up, though. Thinking we will spend the day Saturday training and then head to Quartzsite or somewhere else in the westerly direction on Sunday on our way home.
  6. Hello all, So, I just received a GoPro Hero 8 as an early Christmas gift and was wondering if some of you could share your techniques on using these cameras for detecting? I would like to use it to record my detecting adventures, but not too sure on where to mount it. For those of you that use them, do you wear them on your body (chest mount or headband)? Do you mount it on your detector shaft? If so, is there a specific attachment you use? Or do you just break it out when you dig up a target? This is my first GoPro ever so this is all new to me. Would love to hear any suggestions or opinions!
  7. I have decided to sell my drywasher in order to pick up a Equinox 800. This unit has been used less than 10 times and is in excellent condition and runs great. I have found that I don't enjoy throwing dirt into this thing as much as I used to. Really just want to focus on detecting. Asking for $750 or trade for a Equinox 800. If doing a trade I would appreciate if the machine was in excellent condition as well. I am also willing to add a little bit of cash to the deal if the 800 is brand new. I will be in the LSD/Wickenberg area on the 14th and 15th of December, so I can bring it with me on that weekend. I am located in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Contact me at chris_coffee@san.rr.com or 909-730-9220.

  9. Wondering if there is any notable gold bearing areas in South Carolina that anyone knows of? Looks like I will be moving back there in the next couple of months and I'm hoping to be able to continue my gold prospecting... as well as start doing some coin and relic hunting. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
  10. Wow, that's not very good now is it? My volume control doesn't work, limiter switch doesn't work, and one headphone cup is black and the other is green. Was able to get a hold of the main distributor for the US and he told me that there was definitely something not right about them. Thank you for the email address. Much appreciated.
  11. Does anyone know an actual way to contact DetectorPro for a warranty issue? I have called their number multiple times and left detailed voicemail messages, as well as several emails describing an issue I have with a brand new pair of Black Widow headphones, and have not received a single response in almost 2 wks time. Not sure if some are going to say that that's not enough time... that I should be more patient...but I feel even a short response acknowledging receipt of my complaint isn't too much to ask just so I know things are going to move forward. And just in case some are wondering, taking them back to the dealer really isn't an option since I bought them while on a detecting trip and the dealer is almost 300 miles away...lol. TIA
  12. Hi Boogfhu, It only has the one 11" round stock coil.
  13. Not much to look at, but this is my haul from my last few trips to Gold Basin. Haven't bothered weighing any of it, but I love the color...lol. The two pieces at 4 o'clock and 8 o'clock positions are quartz specimens with very small gold in them. Nothing big yet, but going to keep trying and digging! Still trying to figure out the 4500 settings. Grabbed a used Coiltek Goldstalker 14x9 Blitz coil and found the smallest guy in the pic with it. He is about half the size of a grain of rice. I know, I should have used a coin or something for size comparison...lol.
  14. That's the exact same two detectors I use, Unc. Wouldn't give up the GM1000 for anything. Still trying to get the settings right for the 4500.
  15. Hello everyone, a very good friend of mine has a complete Minelab SD2100 (the green one) set up that he is looking to get rid of, but has no clue what they are worth. So I figured I would ask the experts here what their thoughts are! He recently bought a GPZ7000 and wants to either sell his SD2100 or trade it for a new GM1000. He has all stock gear with it and an extra battery and everything functions perfectly. What are y'alls thoughts? Any and all suggestions/comments welcome. Thank you in advance.
  16. Thank you, Ron. Right about the time we figured out we were in the wrong place it was time for us to go. Ran across a couple of young guys with a broke down quad so we pulled them out of the river bottom and gave then some cold water. .After that, it was time to begin our 6 hour trip home. Jrdemaris gave us a hand with some directions, but the drive to the spot y'all are talking about was another 40 minutes from where we were and we just didn't have the time. There's always next time! 😉👍
  17. We hit the area south of the 10 near the Plamosa placers. Struck out. So decided to try to get to W'berg and the LSD Wash. Never hunted there before so went where we "thought" was the right place. WWAAYY OFF! Going east on the 60 wh turned right on W Gates Rd. Went down the road/hill until we crossed a wide waterway. Not sure that we were in the right place though. Thinking of hitting the other side of the 10 right now on the way back.
  18. Just saw your post with the number right now. Going to be making the call in a minute or two.
  19. Thank you for the reply. It doesn't really even have to be IN Wickenberg. Somewhere close would be fine as well. I didn't see a number, sir!
  20. So, on a whim, me and a friend decided to take a day trip to wickenberg from southern California to try and detect for some gold. At this point we are in Quartzsite and still a couple hours from wickenberg. We would be forever grateful if someone would give us a generalized DECENT area to detect. I know it's a lot to ask. We're not asking for secret spots (unless you WANT to give one up...lol), just somewhere with a pretty good chance of finding something yellow. Thank you in advance.
  21. How about this....I would like to trade this detector for a new set of Black Widow headphones and a new Minelab pinpointer.
