  1. Anyone use it? How good is it on small gold? On coins? Thanks!
  2. You cannot observe stars making gold. THAT is a fact that is not open for debate. Local floods have occurred for centuries but I am speaking a global flood here. Global. And if gold was made in high mass stars, how would we have it?
  3. Anyone seen Bigfoot whilst detecting/prospect etc...? Just a fun topic to fill in time while the snow melts!
  4. So sure, sure, sure, a bunch of "religious junk", but valid. God created gold when he created the earth. There really isn't that much new gold being formed (there is gold formed in labs and by other weird ways) but its not being made. During the Flood, catastrophic plate tectonics reshaped and rebuilt the earth’s crust into multiple new continents with new mountains. At this time, gold returned to rocks near the earth’s surface. Though the details differ, the processes had a few things in common. Initially hot acid waters in deep crustal rocks dissolved the gold, and molten magma and volcanic waters carried it toward the surface . This hot material then entered into cracks in the rocks near the earth’s surface. As it cooled, the gold remained in place, either associated with certain large granite bodies (often with copper) or in veins and ore bodies. After these “primary gold deposits” were put in place, heavy rains and other natural forces eroded many of the rocks. Because gold is very heavy and resistant to corrosion, it settled out into what are called “placer deposits.” These secondary gold deposits include the gold particles found at Sutter’s Mill, which sparked the California gold rush in 1849. Most placer deposits formed at the end of the Flood when the retreating waters drastically eroded the landscape. Indeed, most of the Flood-generated primary and secondary deposits formed during the closing stages of the Flood, especially during the building of the Rockies, Andes, Himalayas, European Alps, and other related mountain ranges. To properly understand this oft-overlooked period of biblical history, let’s look more closely at perhaps the world’s most famous gold deposit—the Witwatersrand. Until recently the Witwatersrand sedimentary basin of South Africa accounted for about 40% of all known gold (and 45% of total gold production). Like a great sea reef rising gently above the surrounding landscape, the Witwatersrand is a ridge running some 60 miles (100 km) in a broad arc across South Africa’s interior. Among locals, it is known simply as “the reef” (or “rand” in Afrikaans). This is a massive placer deposit, similar to the ones described above but on a much bigger scale. Placers get their name because water transported the gold particles into their new place, mingled with silt and sometimes, as in this case, with pebbles too. But how did such a large “reef” appear? Secular geologists argue that the “Golden Arc” was once the edge of a huge inland lake, where gold-laden sediments settled for millions of years. But the Bible offers a much different answer—God’s separation of land and water on Day Three (Genesis 1:9–10). This was a dramatic event in earth history, as God built the pre-Flood supercontinent. It seems that all land was initially buried under the original globe-covering waters. Then as God raised the supercontinent above the ocean surface on Day Three, water rushed off the land and caused massive erosion, decimating many of the earlier primary gold deposits, concentrating it into placer deposits. Around 1,700 years later, the global Flood laid down new fossil-bearing layers atop these Creation Week deposits, and the mountain-building processes at the end of the Flood pushed some of these lower layers to the surface. So we have now seen the main periods of history when gold was deposited. A total of 65% of known, mineable gold deposits are in rocks associated with Creation Week. Less than 2% of known gold deposits were produced in the “post-Creation, pre-Flood” rocks. About 33% of the remaining known gold deposits lie in Flood-related rocks. That's what I believe, but you have your theories too. -Jonal
  5. Hello guys, New to the forum, but not metal detecting. However, I am new to nugget shooting. So my question is: What is the best gold detector for the money? My price range is $500-900. I am looking at AT GOLD, Whites GMT and a few others. So what, from personal experience, do you guys suggest? Thanks! Jonal
