  1. Chet: Glad I ran into you last summer in NV. Your two-fisted MD technique using a GPZ 7000 in your right hand to detect a signal, then checking the target with an Equinox 800 in your left hand as a discriminator, was quite interesting. Judging from the nuggets you were finding, obviously it was working for you! I was particularly interested in the solar powered, battery operated refrigerator/freezer unit that you installed in the back of your SUV. That is the most useful and convenient way to have a steady supply of cold drinks that I have seen. With hot weather coming up soon here in AZ
  2. TYVEK HomeWrap 2 in. x 164 ft. Excellent tape for indoor/outdoor use, it is strong, weather resistant and will stay in place. TYVEK - HomeWrap Installation Tape, It is waterproof, impact resistant, conformable and is good for a range of temperatures variations. Highly recommended !
  3. https://www.detectorprospector.com/forums/topic/970-minelab-gpz-7000-a-super-vlf-saturable-soil-tips/ "CW means Continuous Wave and includes all technologies that do not have zero transmit periods (almost all technologies other than PI)." "The GPZ 7000 is most definitely not a pulse induction detector in that the detector is always transmitting into the ground"
  4. "I had to get them all first" Very Nice! I noticed a few nugs with quartz attached and was wondering if these came off of a vein pocket or just a scattered roundup?
  5. Red_desert, I was wondering if you were ever able to identify the tribe of the the Native male and female shown in the court ship ritual painting by James Ayers in your original post?
  6. So would the Silver Hawkers. Personally, I'm a little surprised it's as high as it is, given the price history of silver over the past few years. A silver dime (pre-1964), appears to be holding it's worth of a dollar or more at meltdown prices. To me, that makes them fun to find (along with quarters, halves and war nickles), and there seems to be quite a few still out there waiting to be found . . .
  7. Taking refuge in doubt and disbelief serves a useful purpose of calming fear of the unknown. This may be the reasoning behind the decision of governments that have previously hesitated in disclosing or confirming physical evidence of U.F.O.'s. It is much easier (and safer), to simply reject their existence than to grapple with unknowable and possibly foreboding explanations.
  8. Seem to be finally trending a little . . .
  9. He may be trying to close the deal, while playing what appears to be a traditional courting flute. Could that be the bride price/dowry grazing in the background? Unless he's good with the flute he may still be one pony short of a princess.
  10. Good eye Jack! Wonder what's inside?
  11. Jan 8, 2020 Gold slips; oil prices lose more than 1% Spot gold fell 0.2% to $1,562.81 per ounce. Oil prices also retreated on Tuesday, losing more than 1% before paring losses in the afternoon.
  12. The neutral term "administration" was used in the context of the likely hood of the price of gold spiking. I was supporting Chrisski's side of the discussion. There was no intent, and no mention, implied or otherwise, of politics.
  13. Didn't mean to hit a nerve Luke. Correct me if I'm wrong, but as you may recall, the prohibited subject that went off the rail was Politics. And, with respect, you seem to be missing the point entirely. The "flames" are not about the right to agree or disagree on a topic. It was the topic itself. You may have noticed that I didn't jump into the rapidly accelerating discussion that was clearly turning Political. I stayed out of it for good reason. For one thing, Skips admonishment/warning. That should have been enough of a reminder for anyone. And as far as Bill needing my help or anyone's
  14. Not blaming you Skip, I blame the one(s) who fan the flames and take advantage of your tolerance, and good nature, which intentionally disregards and disrespects Bill's edict IMO.
  15. The historical weaknesses in the hedge with regards to oil and gold prices doesn't seem to be there as a significant effect compared to previous administration policies. Deregulation and technological expansion of resource development etc, has been proven to contribute to a reasonable stability of the worlds oil market to the point of an all time glut as in in the recent past. Iran and the Emirates are considered to be much less of a factor in present and future global price of petroleum, even with instability in the region.
  16. H-2 Charlie, Thanks for your response. That sounds pretty consistent with what I have seen in a side by side comparison between the Gold Monster and the GB Pro. Greater sensitivity on smaller targets, (especially at increased depth) which does give the Monster a distinct advantage.
  17. Sorry if I didn't make the above inquiry clear. I was trying to understand why H-2 Charlie was glad he made the upgrade. Personally, I agree that the Monster is an upgrade over the GB Pro. But I was curious as to what circumstance in the field existed that would have caused the Monster to have succeeded, where the GB Pro would not have. I was interested in H-2 Charlie's opinion on the subject since it appeared to me that he seemed to be giving his new detector credit for the find and inferring that the old one wouldn't have found the nugget in question. It sounded like a learning opportunity
  18. Do you really think it was the Monster that made the difference in this find? And if so, why? If you had put the GB Pro coil over this nugget, do you think it would have detected it? If not why not? Just wondering . . . Thanks.
  19. "Iron Pyrite, a common iron sulfide also known as Fools Gold"
  20. Good price and a good detector for shallow gold and definitely useful as a niche detector along the lines of the Monster 1000 and Nox 800 (gold mode) with small coil IMO. In bedrock, Yavapai schist etc, it will produce. May not detect quite as deep as the other two, but very user friendly, turn on and go, light weight, Fisher durable, And, uses a single 9 volt battery.
