  10. MT Prof, Nice very nice. I was born in Butte in 1939, graduated MSM 1963. I sent you a PM.
  11. Please excuse me for lurking and popping up from time to time without properly introducing myself. I am retired and spend the winter months in Surprise, AZ. About 5 years ago a friend got me interesting in metal detecting. I'll have to admit that I have not yet found my first nugget, but I am learning a lot from reading posts on this forum, and spending more time with my detectors. After some initial loss of patience with the results of my detecting I spent most of my time drywashing. I was able to satisfy my fever with the drywashing gold for a few years, but now I want to refocus on det
  12. Very interesting comparison. I wonder what the difference in depth on both detectors would be on a smaller nugget, say 1/4 oz. At any rate the ATX is a very interesting detector. Nice to know if you passed your coil over a deep monster chances are good you'd hear it with the ATX.
  13. I am definitely impressed with that haul. Congrats!
  14. Nice. You are, indeed, one of the 10%. Congrats.
  15. A very eye-opening video. Looks like the pictures of the old gold rush days in the USA, everyone claiming a little patch of ground to dig.
  16. I was impressed with the ATX my friend recently purchased. Very smooth running machine. I particularly liked the way it folds down onto a compact carrying case. Now I wish Garrett would make a lighter weight dry land model.
  17. Regardless of what "sawmill" thinks, I have a good understanding of what one must do to prospect on public land. I am also in several clubs. I know exactly what I would do to find new areas. I was merely asking what others do to find new detecting spots. Maybe that is how I should have asked the question in the first place. Thanks to all who tried to be helpful. To "sawmill", have a Snickers.
  18. Bedrock, you are right about research. But, assume one has researched enough to know to be looking in areas where gold has been, and is being found. Has the knowledge base, through research and experience, to know what he/she is looking for. Knows that active claims cannot be prospected. So, either you determine what general area you want to explore and research the claim status of that area so you can explore unclaimed land, or explore an area and research the claim status of the area that looks good for future prospecting. Or you have the right to explore and prospect claimed lands. Wh
  19. I read threads on this forum and others where someone has done some driving/hiking to find a new spot to detect. Sometimes nuggets are found on these exploration trips. Sounds good. I, of course, wonder where these guys are going to find new areas that are not under claim, State lands, or private property. I have to assume they are exploring claims of clubs they are members of, their own claims, claims or private property they have permission to prospect, or unclaimed Federal public land. There are few maps available that accurately show current active claims, so what is the strategy used
