    One possibility is the data given on usgs website was taken before accurate longitude and latitude readings became readily available. These days just about any good gps unit will give accurate information. That same data may not have been available when the mine was originally listed.

    I am beginning to think the same, seems like these coordinates on this site are way off by at least a quarter mile if not more. 

  2. After reading the Mindata info on locations I  understand why they are not accurate

    Map Location Accuracy: The coordinates listed for many locations are general regional coordinates (not accurate) and should not be relied upon for locating localities (eg with a GPS).

    Map Scales: The maps scales shown below may be the scales of the original map data (eg 1:50000 Landranger Maps) and NOT the scale as they may appear on your screen. Not all map scales listed below may be available for every location, in some cases links may default to another scale - there may be only one scale available for some places. Many sites may share same data, but you can choose which you prefer to use.

    are you sure the batteries are the issue ??? Ill offer you $50 shipped for the 2 :200:

    Hi Mike, I am not really sure whats wrong with them, maybe an easy fix, maybe not. But with the 2 I am sure anyone with some electronic sense would make one work. The one I bought from a memberis charged full and green light is on. But when I switch  it on on my 4500 ML it makes the headphones squeal. 

    Not sure where you live , but shipping maybe a bit more do to the weight of the batteries. I would do 75.00.

  4. I Have these 2 batteries for the gpx series detectors. One was my old one and it stopped working, not sure why. I thought maybe the headphone jack was faulty so i took out the 4 screws and was going to replace the jack. I never did it but I did cut the 3 colored wires connected to the jack.  #2 I bought form a forum member for 250 bucks, but when I received it I tried it out and went faulty after on days use. #2 Charges fully, the charging lights go to full green, but when I hook it to my gpx and switch  it on all it does is squeal...so maybe an amp is out, not sure. I am no electronic whizz by far..but do know some members are and maybe you can use one to fix the other...not sure.  


    100 bucks plus shipping.

  5. Nice review Terry, what a great price for such an informative book on prospecting with a metal detector. Its a small price to pay to shorten the learning curve in this hobby of searching out those elusive nuggets. For me it took years and years out in the field observing different scenarios and environments, beginner's today   have the benefit of buying guides like this to help them out in the field. Anyone willing to spend good hard earned cash on a detector should buy this guide and have it in their collection as a reference. I have been detecting for 40 years and 30 for nuggets, I will order mine soon because even if I learn a few things I never knew it has the potential  to be worth its weight in GOLD. 



       I noticed you do not take Paypal...is there a way to pay with PayPal?

  7. After the 1970s, central banks bought into the idea that the U.S. dollar was the savior of the global financial system. When the 2008 financial crisis hit it became clearer that the dollar isn't as secure as was led. With huge debt, and trillions more printed every year, more nations are stocking up their gold reserves because of probable higher future  prices in gold. More nations are going away with the Petro-Dollar and using their own currency in exchange for resources like oil and natural gas. Heck India has even been buying Iranian oil with gold and rupees, Russia-China using national currencies  for mutual trade all this means the shift towards higher gold prices. Question is what will we do to stop this shift away from the dollar, because if things continue we may be looking at a major economic global depression or worse. Save your gold and silver.

    The question you asked has been asked thousand of times and the answer you got is the same answer given thousands of times

    Do not expect any help from anyone here, some have so many claims that they will never be able to check them all in their life time

    But to let someone on a claim oh no you might find a piece of gold and people are so greedy they do not let anyone on

    First do research for what or where they don't tell you, join a club and go on their claims where everyone goes because they got the advise

    Is there still gold on those claims of course but it's slim picks, you go to an outing on a claim they do not put you on a spot that they found gold

    They have the outing at spots they didn't find gold. Gold clubs are like every other club a click here and a click there, unless you can get in a click no one is going to help you. Years ago gold was more available but now club claims are picked over so you have to be lucky

    And most of YouTube's only show finding gold so you watch their channel so what else get money

    Good luck to you hope you find a few decent guys to hook up with they are like finding unclaimed land

    Want to have fun buy a jeep or ATV or a utv sandrail or Baja bug, groups with those will invite you along to old cabins log and stone day trips, over night trips and lots of old spots and they will help you with information on how to fix things on your machine even parts and they will pull you out if you break down

    Why no money no greed in most cases

    Good luck to you what ever you do
