  1. Clearing out some prospecting stuff...I have two great videos , one is Gold Panning by Don Robinson..one of the best videos on gold panning, long and well done. The other is on drywashing included is a Keene  Product This is a must-have tool for your pack! Not only is it used for metal detecting, dredging and dry washing, it's awesome for gardening around the house! Easily scours out bedrock and irregular surfaces. Has 5 independent spring steel rods pointing downward. By moving the sliding rod attached to the spring steel rods can regulate the width. The finger follow the irregular contour of bedrock and surfaces for ease of digging. It is also super light weighing under 8 ounces! The other is an underwater Jobe made Scope..brand new..never used items...75.00 Bucks includes shipping!

  2. Another Detech..15x8 Mono...has to be one of my favorite all time coils...found plenty of nuggets. Ran smooth...but over the years became touch sensitive...No coil cover..has crack on bottom. Perfect for a repair...and new coil cover. 60.00 includes shipping.

  3. Another one I have is this Detech  DD coil for the Gpx series ML detectors....goes deep. I sold it previously but it got smashed by usps..so it was returned. I sprayed some sealant on the various cracks and it fired up just find. So the black marks you see was my attempt at waterproofing it. The coil is to big for me...the cracks need to be resealed...but last time I used it it worked nice and ran smooth. I  hear the relic hunters back east like this coil, and like I said it goes deep. 100.00 includes shipping west of Colorado.

  4. I have this 17" Nuggetfinder Mono coil for sale 75.00... includes shipping. I have not used it in a few years....may work fine but as I recall it may be a bit touch sensitive.

    I good coil that's found plenty of nuggets years ago, it would be a good coil for someone who has the ability to make repairs. I know some of the guys on the forum do stuff like that. 

    Like I said, this coil may just work fine...no coil cover...but overall its in good shape.

  5. In the Sierra's they show up in early spring ..when it warms up a bit.  I have 2 feeders going..there are hundreds living in the nearby oak trees..swooping down like a f16..to the feeders. At times they buzz so close to me I wonder how the heck maneuver so fast and change directions instantly. 


  6. The so called loss of depth is insignificant in my opinion. You wouldn't believe how tiny some of my gold pieces are found at very good depth. Get yourself three coils....small like a sadie, a medium one like a 11" mono and a 16" to 18" . Cover the ground you hunt with all three and you will have it covered....enhanced works well in medium and hot ground..Crank up the gain and go very slow. Well thats my 2,3,4,5, bits. Good luck.

  7. Front panel.  

    General

    Enhanced Mode

    Fixed

    Mono if using mono coil...

     

    Back Panel....I usually run the Stab...2 -4 notches below my highest gain settings....If ground to hot, reduce gain. Don't over think it.  The more you use it the better understanding you will have. keep reading the owners manual. Watch some JP videos. Keep the coil low and swing slow if in a patch. Reground periodically if in hot ground.

  8. Mike,

    First congrats on the birth of your son...:ya:, your going to be an awesome dad, I do understand your concerns about California and its politics in that regard. As far as the gulch I have not been hunting that area in the past 3 years do to much activity in that area. I have a few spots I go between and have done fairly well...and as usual looking for new spots always.  If you choose Arizona, I am sure you will have plenty of opportunity to find new locations..and no poison oak...:ROFL: . At this moment its been raining and the terrain is rough and sticky, the clay is slippery and its easy to find oneself down the slippery slope. Glad to hear all is good with you... keep us posted on where you end up. 

    Oh by the way.....I hear Arizona is LOADED with Gold.....I know  with your skills you will do well.
