  1. What I grew up with Meat: Cut beef /venison quartering the grain into 1/8" - 1/4" strips. Marinade: 1 part Soy Sauce 3/4 part Red Wine (Carlo Rossi Burgundy/Chianti)... Rosemary, (rosemary should be the dominant one unless you don't like rosemary) Thyme, Oregano. Make enough to cover meat. Let marinade overnight. Remove from marinade and discard juice. Leave half the meat plain, Black Pepper the other half until it's too spicy for the kids, so you get some. Smoke until dry.
  2. Well, since the light/gravitational wave just reached us from the kilanova that happened 130 million years ago, if the gold was travelling at 99.99% the speed of light then it should arrive here in a mere 13,000 years. That should give me enough time to save up for a GPZ 7000...
  3. Also, if you're at all interested you should really watch/read this, fascinating. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/16/science/ligo-neutron-stars-collision.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=second-column-region&region=top-news&WT.nav=top-news
  4. Holy Moley, They actually detected gold and platinum being created in a neutron star kilonova! To say nothing about the human race's new found ability to detect gravitational waves, this is utterly astounding. It's a brave new world. https://www.yahoo.com/news/secret-gold-finally-found-precious-140000482.html Might be hard to drywash in zero g.
  5. I'm on this site at least one a week. I don't live near much coarse gold but I own a GB Pro. I love to read the site and dream about putting my detector over gold. Unfortunately I don't have much to post. However, I also follow the Oregon Gold Hunters forum. That site has devolved into a form where actual gold comes up in one of every 100 posts. The rest are political grumblings about how the good old days were the best and the government is out to get us. I can't read it anymore.
  6. Reno Chris, I find this very interesting. My limited knowledge of gold producing areas in the western US is that they are more generally related to intrusive igneous minerals. However basalt is extrusive. For the metamorphism to occur, morphing the basalt into greenstone, must the basalt have been subducted? Then, in almost an intrusive manner, be thrust back to the surface? It seems like a very specific set of conditions which could really help to narrow down a search area.
  7. As a novice who lives in an area that doesn't have a whole lot of gold (let alone nuggets), but who also has been stricken for years with a horrible case of gold fever, I want to say that I really appreciate this post. I know it's all about research, gold is where you find it, etc. But the fact of the matter is when you haven't found much gold, that shiny new detector calls out to you saying "I'll find it for you, I'm the best", even when you know better. Follow that up with a (fantastic forum which I love and read regularly) forum where the best and brightest compare notes you learn that, almost invariably (GBII), the best and brightest Nuggetshooters use the best and brightest detectors and that makes the call of the equipment ring ever louder. Plus, it's a hell of a lot easier to buy something different than to do something different. At the end of the day, if you're not finding gold you need to do something different, not buy something different. That is what I take from this post. And my opinion matters...
  8. You probably should have posted this in the 'Where does gold come from' thread...
  9. Thanks Guys! I will definitely check both these options out.
  10. I have a fearless little Jack Russel myself. He goes everywhere. I'm not so comfortable with him around snakes as is the fellow in the video, and him being on the losing end of a confrontation like this has concerned me for some time. So, I am wondering if anyone knows of a place to order 'dog snake bite kits'?
  11. Wow that little branch has some great fire @El Dorado! I hope I get something even close to that. Loving any tips about digging Opals or some open ground for nugget shooting in the area. Really appreciate everyone in this forum.
  12. Of Course you can come Adam! But only if you promise to ask 'Are we there yet?' a thousand times.
  13. Hi All, I'm putting together a trip with my (young) family to the Royal Peacock Opal Mine. There we will certainly unearth gobs of gem quality opal. But then what? Well I have a gold bug pro that I've gotten used to, and a powerful hankering to find myself a little gold. I am hoping you experts might be able to point me in the right direction to an area that would possibly give up some gold within a few hours of Denio NV. Any suggestions on maps I should find, or clubs I should contact/join would be greatly appreciated. Oh, how I long to post on this site with a picture of some gold I found. That is pure bucket list stuff for me.
  14. I'm implying that you should show me exactly where you dug both the coins and the specimen so that I can see it for myself. Then, I would be perfectly willing to vouch for you. And I assure you my opinion carries a lot of weight
  15. Sadly, this type of mentality doesn't get far in a democracy. Whether or not the BLM is in the wrong, if prospectors/miners can't band together we become just a bunch of disparate whines in the background. Meanwhile policy gets set around us.
