  1. I was wondering if XFR or fire assay would id the source of gold on my claim? My claim lies along the western flank of the Motherlode gold belt and it is enriched by several sources (most known). It would be nice to see if I can id the souce or see if there is any others. On another note, how do you turn off the underline?

  3. I taped a small nugget to the face of a credit card, non-metallic, as a drop target. After adjusting balance, threshold and sensitivity, I use the card at depth to check for signal strength.
  4. Dave, I located some used Thule cross bars and brackets. A bit pricey new. Found the inexpensive rack online. $89 if I remember correctly and they shorted me one bolt for the tiedowns and gave me about $40 credit. Need to seal the cross tubes as they are only tack welded and water weeps inside. You get a nice rust waterfall pattern on the side of the car when you get up to freeway speed and the vortex pull the water out. lol By the way, looking killer on the build. Very nice.
  5. Thanks Au, I forgot to look at my list. Inherited a few.
  6. At almost $28 an oz. aren't you shorting yourself a few bucks?
  7. This is what you are looking for (California pocket gold). I've plenty of quartz with the goldish stain but wouldn't consider it gold in any way.
  8. I think the state of Texas should help out those in California that want to live "Texas style" and help them move down there. Plenty of open space and they still put fertilizer plants right next to schools.
  9. Been tuning into this Dr. for over a year. Good info and presentation.
  10. Jeff, the wife and I both enjoy your videos as well as Gary's. You guys must have heard of the trick with tire chains and moving rocks right? Works much better than a simple chain. Keep up the good work.
  11. I have a stereo microscope for viewing samples and gold up close. Tiny piece but nice design.
  12. Statistics in my area, 51% in age group 18 to 49 are spreading the virus, 75% in age group over 65 are dying from it.
  13. Take it to your local vet and have it xrayed to see where the au is and how much. Continuity test as mentioned. HF or similar to remove quartz. Melt wax on areas you don't want the acid to eat to leave some natural rock attached.
  14. Got my second shot this morning at Mather VA in Sacramento. Wife's sister and husband in Mariposa went to Fresno and Livingston for theirs as the county was slow to respond. We are in El Dorado county and it is a joke. No information. I've registered three times to get the shots and it took me driving by the Senior Center in Placerville and seeing a sign out that got me to stop and go in to see what was going on. "They will call you" bs was still being disseminated but then one of the people there pulled out a blank clipboard sign up sheet for those who wanted to get on a list for missed appointments. Three hours later they called and had an opening for my wife. Done. Getting the vaccination isn't just about you, the "pan" in pandemic means it is global, save someone you may not even know. Get the shots.
  15. We only heard the fragment hitting each other overhead as it was breaking apart as it came down around us. Literally falling on our heads. The weird thing is the sound worked backwards from the direction of the fall. The wife saw the smoke, I didn't and her brother saw it from his location down by Mariposa. The wife only owned her 8.5 for a just over an hour or so before Ruben purchased it from her. Now Memorial Day weekend, we kicked ass and found a total of 8 fragments, and a few weekends later we finished walking the area and found the last 1 grammer.
  16. Here you go. https://www.space.com/27959-space-diamonds-meteorite-sutters-mill.html
  17. I looked this up after a confrontation under a small bridge. $500 fine and they can take your equipment for any prospecting/digging on the side of any county road / highway etc. This was El Dorado county, Calif. This includes bridges. Looked it up after speaking with CalTrans, Sheriff, CHP, DOT etc. Nobody knew anything.
  18. Wife and were watching this last night when this sequence came on. Laughed pretty hard. Soul.mp4
  19. Condolences on your loss. https://www.kitco.com/ shows current prices for precious metals. "Spot" price is the current offer price on the market. Do some research https://www.google.com/search?q=how+to+sell+silver+coins&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS767US767&oq=how+to+sell+silver+coins&aqs=chrome..69i57.7751j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 The more you know...
  20. 1915 gets it down the road nicely. Looking forward to seeing further post.
  21. Dave, where did you route the intake and exhaust for the heater? Thanks. Rick
  22. Dunno how I missed these post. Nice, very nice. I just installed one of the diesel heaters in our 1956 Terry 12 footer. Blast out the heat. Great placement of yours under the hood. Is that the 2kw or the bigger 5 to 8kw? I many borrow your placement for mine baja. Wife and I enjoy the backroads in the area and hope to have it out on the playa soon. (Middle Fork of the American River, Georgetown side.) Almost got into my first sand trap when we got going again in that same direction. I paid a bit more than you for this one, $1600 with a 1500 in it. Running fresh 1915, added 15" rims and tires, rack and other fitments.
