  1. Does anyone have a reciever for a Romanian AK47 they don't want? How about a flat one even? I've been working on puting this thing together for a while, one piece at a time-now I just need a receiver. I can use even a flat since I built a jig-just need to see if it works!
  2. Any hard rock recreational miners out there? I'm curious as to how the hard rock pays out versus placer. I don't know much about it, but would be interested in whatever anyone has to say!
  3. Thanks for the great info-so far I am el skunko on gold with the GBII but I know it will roll around. So I have been using the iron descrim as a test....find a target in regular mode and switch on the iron descrim mode and hear what she has to say. Anyone tried this? I have dug everything and it has all been hot rocks and trash....but I wonder if there isn't some signal in the iron discrim mode that screams gold once you've found a hit to check like this. Too all you GPAA members-yuo can thank me because I have hauled off approximately 6 metric tons of lead bullets, casings, iron junk, ran
  4. So thinking of heading east of Black Canyon City-maybe squaw creek. Anyone familiar with this area? ! Al
  5. Thanks for the info! I'm going out again friday-think I'll test some of those theories! Al
  6. So I was out beeping the other day-not really familiar with the GB2- and hit a couple spots I was sure were nuggets...dug them up and there was nothing there! I ran the detector over the dirt I excavated and nothing! Anyone have this happen? I was running it in heavily mineralized ground and had turned on the iron discrim earlier-that is why I was sure they were nuggets both times....thought about them being smaller nuggets-but rejected that because I couldn't get a read on the backdirt. Any ideas? Thanks!
  7. Wow...well-I'll make sure to steer clear of state trust lands until I've done all my homework on that! Thanks!
  8. Just looking fer some gold! And anything else that comes along with it!

  9. Actually, proving the age of a projectile point is standard practice and quit easy-its all about finding them buried incontext with oth points and datable objects-called seriation. If you can couple seriation with hearths in the same levels-presto you can date how old that pintstyle is and this has been done for the vast majority of types out there. So we know Clovis points range from about 10500 to 12000 years ago. There are other methods as well, but they are more complex and this is foolproof.

  11. Just the other day I was swinging my arm some in the desert up north of phenix...I hear something heading towards me in the scrub and low and behold-it was a full grown EMU! Just out wandering around, probably got lost off of someones place!
  12. Anything ever happen with this? I once found 13 sticks of nitro-leaking tnt and burned it in place...worked fine-not even a pop!
  13. Interesting post! I saw someone mention that if it were on private land it would be OK to keep...not exactly! Artifacts on private land are OK to keep (legally speaking) but human remains are covered under an entirely different set of laws and never OK to keep (legally). But you'd have to let your conscience be your judge on that one!
  14. So-It seems Moore Gulch is mostly AZ State Trust Land, but the mineral rights are federal...so does this mean that I can prospect in that area? Does anyone know for sure what the situation is there or how that works?
  15. Interesting to be sure-I'll have to give it a shot and see what I can come up with. I found GPAA claims to buy high. Anyone had any experience with them?
