  1. Andyy,.... I know nothing about your specific detector. If it is a VLF and you are having trouble with the highly mineralized ground, I would suggest to turn down the gain/sensitivity and see if it will smooth out a bit for you.

Adam, my friend and I have discussed taking the time to move an area of overburden in the wash and we probably will at some point. If I'm not mistaken, you and boulder dash have some videos on YouTube...? I'm a big fan. Azblackbird, gold or not, I still enjoy getting out for the expe
  5. Hello everyone! This is the first gold prospecting forum I have joined and this will be my first post. Entitled: Download and decompress.... My name is Luke. I live in Phoenix, and a 39 year 'native' of Arizona. I've spent countless hours reading the posts here and anywhere else where people with valuable experience so generously share their hard won wisdom. Thank you for that. A few years back I bought a Goldmaster V/sat on Craigslist for $325 and it came with a sluice and old version of the Fox gold spiral. Pretty good deal... I went up to the Cow Creek area a few times.
