  1. Go up Shoemaker Canyon Rd.....and detect gullies feeding the East Fork, one in particular we named "Nugget Gulch" for obvious reasons....10 ounces came out of this gulch not far below the road. The thing to do is hike down to the small falls which is just past the halfway mark of the gully and work your way up..digging down to bedrock...pretty shallow at some spots, deeper in others...gold nuggets in cracks in bedrock. Once found 6 nice pickers in one small crack..with my Gold Master 2. Not to many people go up the road..this was in the early 90's. Camp Williams is on the other side of the river ...Follows Camp is a ghost town these days....only memories left . Joe Davison once owned the Camp, he welcomed all including us prosepctors and local misfits who lived in the nearby mobile park . Best way to start the morning was having breakfast and coffee at the Follows Camp restaurant before hitting the river and hills. These days, another generation of prosepctors still hike up the canyon searching for gold..among them one Kevin Brown has found some amazing pieces ....sniping the river and working old tertiary deposits. Bernie McGrath known to some as the unofficial mayor of Azusa Canyon passed away a few years ago...Some may remember him sniping and dredging the river ...great story teller....R.I.P. Bernie.
  2. It was an 8" dredge and had to jigs ...done by Keene....Just watch your fingers..
  3. Looking to buy a Keene 151 Box with riffle tray only. Thanks
  4. This specimen was passed down to a friend of mine whose grandpa gave it to his father and so on.....that's all I know. According to him one of his relatives did some prospecting back in the day. What's amazing is the weight of this wire gold specimen, thankfully it survived, imagine what was melted down....
  5. Yes I hear the aliens are on this forum, search for the best miners... Anunnaki ...to steal their Gold....
  6. Sorry, missed this one important detail, the total gold weight is 11 grams. The pin is gold and I would estimate the nugget at an easy 10 grams.
  7. Offering an incredible example of wire gold made into a stickpin sometime between 1850's to late 1800's. Wiregold specimens rarely come this size these days....a great collectible piece for any collection. All reasonable offers will be considered....p.m. for more information.
  8. Yup. I knew Jerry backin the 90's...we used to dredge the East Fork ...and shoot the chit at the Follows Camp restaurant. Jerry owned Azusa Gold, myself and I few friends from Burbank would go over to his shop and talk well shop...lol. Jerry new his stuff and was quiet but tough as a nail...he represented the prospecting community by going to Sacramento many times to fight for our rights. Here are two photos of me on Jerrys 8 inch dredge on the East Fork of the San Gabriel River , Azusa. The rig ended up in Marysville, California.
  9. I just want to know if they are documented or undocumented ALIENS.
  10. Update ....Just cleaned up the gold some....weight dropped to 5.78 grams...Price is 270.00 includes shipping 15 total pieces. p.m. if interested
  11. Welcome Craig, As a former Ventura County resident....I can recommend a few spots to hunt gold for you and your family that is close proximity to Ventura. Joining the GPAA is a good way to go....the Orange County 49ers club was a good experience for me also, they have some nice outings on their claims from Kern County to the Mojave, near Randsburg. The East Fork is another area i use to go and do some detecting and sluicing...welcome aboard and ask a lot of questions. Bills forum has one hell of a lot of talent and experience. Keene in Chatsworth is always anice drive to see the latest and greatest in prospecting/mining equipment and tools...
  12. Used but in great condition... 200.00 includes free shipping. Missing coil cover.. Description FOR MINELAB GPX SERIES METAL DETECTORS This is a classical 15 x 8 Elliptical Gold Coil now available in DD. Same operation as the 12.5″ DD, with the Elliptical shape to allowing you access to tighter areas. Another option for older machines that require DD coils. All Detech coils are made using the highest quality materials. The housings are made of UV protected material, their inside is covered with chopped-strand material for a better shock resistance. We use resins, which are “transparent” to the electromagnetic waves, and offer perfect shielding. The coils are water proof and operate in a wide temperature range.

  16. I tried using a solar panel running a small 12 volt pump for my highbanker and the ranger told me its a mechanical process of sucking water from river....California..the land of fruits and nuts..former hippies running our state , what do you expect...
