  1. This is an old story going back to 2016 when the news hit local and international media outlets about a 18 ozt nugget found at Woods Creek in Tuolumne County, California. I tracked the nugget and finally found out that its on display at the Ironstone Winery in Murphys California. I took a trip up ole Hwy 49 and visited this winery and discovered that they have one hell of a museum with a great collection of local gold form the surrounding areas along with relics from the gold rush era. They also have many gold specimens and native gold jewelry for sale, I also noticed some 16 to 1 quartz gold specimen available. If you find yourself in the region, stop by and visit they also have a great lineup of country music bands and artist throughout the Summer . The outdoor gardens and premises are filled with old gold rush era mining equipment including stamp mills. Below is the picture of Woodies Wonder which is held in the main vault with the more famous 40 pound  Crown Jewel of Ironstone gold leaf specimen found in Jamestown..largest piece that came out of the lucky strike on Christmas day. Woodies Wonder contains 11.2 ozt of gold...

  2. The  so called ' media" is the great divider, they feed  division and hate especially in those not raised right. Those that control the media, images  set the agenda and influence the culture. They feed the hateful ideas some have....but anyways..just one persons opinion.  The media is a powerful tool...used to influence us all . Peace...

    Hi again everyone. I went ahead and bought my coils. after many hours of thinking and reading i decided to get 3 additional coils for my GPX. I should be set for life now :)

    You have it covered, don't even think about buying anymore, unless they go bad...od course. 

  4. Come to the California Sierras....many little towns along the old Motherlode hwy 49....electricians up here make good money..you can prospect part time. If you get your contractor's license you can ask and will get a easy 45 to 55 bucks per hour. Heck just as a handyman electrician doing service work you can command a great hourly rate. My family moved from Chicago..all my uncles are electricians, including myself....actually these days I spend all my time chasing that dream.... :) :barnie:detecting for gold. But reality is I'd make more pulling wire.  But like the rest said..and I agree, its a tough go at the gold game...but not impossible to average out 100 bucks a day throughout the year.

  5. " I don`t think that the consumer should have to jerry-rig a brand new product for that price."

    That's my whole point of this whole post...I shouldn't have to grind the tray in order for it to fit the box, or find the proper glue for the silk screen after 10 hours of use, or grind the dang screw heads that stick out and get caught on this and that. I don't see it as negative comment but constructive advice for the consumer with dollars in his or her pocket who may find my review helpful. I have bought a bunch of Keene products over a 30 year span...this one I don't care for in particular. The End.
