    Gold is Not Where You Find It

    AuSeeker, No doubt there is still gold but its not reachable with my 4500. Worked it to death....100X ....the small sub gram to 4 gram nuggets must be to deep. I have used every imaginable coil...the dirt is silent...Waiting for the next Minelab detector that can actually reach down and get those small deep ones . Been waiting to hear about the gpz 7000 and how its opening up all those worked out patches... But seems like it may have fell short....I could be wrong...perhaps everyone is just keeping silent.

    Newcomers beware

    Wyoprospector, Listen, we all had to start form nothing...I started with a simple pan , sluicing, drywashing, sniping ..and invested in a dredge or 2. Eventually some of us joined a club or two to be around others who enjoyed looking for gold. I know I did all of the above. In time...you get to meet some cool people...some of those will show you how to reduce your learning curve by offering great advice. If you are nice fellow some will actually show you where they found gold !! Bingo !Believe it or not...a phone call, a text, or private message usually won't get you what you want. But if you take the time and network.and allow people to get to know you ..you will be on gold I can guarantee you that 100%. Bill offers group outings...many members here on the forum attend and have a great time, unfortunately for me I can't leave as I have many obligations . But if you are hungry enough to find gold, you would have found the way my friend. Detecting for gold is the most difficult way to find gold and probably not suitable for 90% . Some are diggers....give em a shovel, pick and sluice and they will find gold. Some like many on this forum ..can wander for hours swinging that detector as if they're in a trance...digging trash and more trash and hoping that the next target will be gold, and if its not that day or the next if they keep on swinging that coil they will find it. Unfortunately success builds confidence, you have had no success...so you have no confidence. Here is some free advice..sell all your vlf's and buy a Minelab sdc from Bill...go to areas gold was previous found before and swing that coil and dig all targets. Good luck and may the gold gods shine upon you !

    Eye Popping Gold Discovery !!

    lol....yes for sure....digging deep holes is a pain..I have spent an hour on a few only to find....you guessed it.... trash. But as you all well know when your beepin in grounds that have produced gold nuggets....you got to dig them all...cause of the what if scenario... For me living close to the gold fields its a process of elimination....eventually the yellow will show itself.

    Here ya go,..."OMG!!"

    I have often wondered about marks on some of the nuggets I have found over the years....Knowing any marks on specimens and nuggets devalue the nugget or specimens to collectors. But....some of the marks actually look as if they were done long ago as they lack that bright shine of a fresh hit..scrape from the pick. Regardless....those old marks on the nuggets make them pretty cool ...and many probably were just missed and tossed by way of the end of the shovel !!
