  1. Gotta love those bird shot targets too! Nice job on the gold!
  2. No such thing as ugly gold ... love them all! but then again I'm old and single and can't see as well as I used to!
  3. I rolled a rock out of the wash ... and out popped this little guy. Very translucent and had a body about an inch long! One of his kind nailed me a few years back ... glad there wasn't a repeat of his relatives effort! If I am not mistaken this is called a 'Little Brown' by some but its official name is a 'Bark Scorpion'.
  4. About 3 hours of raking and chipping out bedrock released these little fellas from their eons of bondage!
  5. Was thinking the same Dave ... albeit a bit older than you were at the time!
  6. Bump ... Both still available as of Monday morning!
  7. Selling my last 100 oz bar for $100 under whatever spot is for the day we agree to the exchange. You can see the serial number of the bar in the picture below. That is the actual bar that you would receive. Today the value as I write this it is $17.57/oz on Kitco averaging the bid and the ask. ... or $1757.00. If sold today I would sell it for $1657. If you are interested please PM me. Delivery would be made in person and for CASH ONLY!
  8. Did I miss a week? Not the date on your notice is 10/22/2019!
  9. Going being fluctuating a bit, high and low, between now and November ... November is when I really get going. Just have to pick and choose before the cooler weather stays here for the "season"!
  10. Good luck out there! And be careful!
  11. Happy Birthday Patrick ... Sorry I can't post what would out do what Frank posted ... this is a family forum after all! Make it a great day! And BTW ... where are you these days? PM me if you don't want to be found by the crowd!
  12. Good video ... But at about the 8:50 mark they called the GM1000 the GPZ7000 ... twice!
  13. Must say I had a very good day in one of Bill's favorite places. We got a little gold ... you will have to wait for the video Bill made to see his gold but here are my tiny pieces for your viewing pleasure. The gold season has begun!
  14. Garik ... One of the few RRPC claims(LSD as a whole not necessarily just Sando) I have spent a lot of time in. Were you there today or recently? That whole area should have decent gold. The key will be to look for the areas the old timers(old timer dry wash piles) played in as a starter.
  15. Nice nugget Tom! I just tried to edit out your trommel vid on top ... somehow couldn't find the resource to get rid of it for you. Maybe Skip can do it if he sees this if you still want the first video gone.
  16. That second song got me! Thanks for the post Ron and the reminder to live to the e you and 'D' soon.
  17. Good Luck on the new grounds! Ah ... Kinda old to have wisdom teeth removed ... we need all the thought process we can muster at our older age! Losing two storage units is going to cost in memory retention!
  18. Easy Boys ... I know it is all in fun right now .... BUT .... !
  19. Wyoming Digger ... GENERALLY speaking using a larger coil will give more depth but have somewhat less sensitivity to smaller gold at that increased depth and be more prone to false signals from hot rocks. Careful and correct ground balancing technique is key to the Gold Monster. However that being said ... If you suspect larger gold at depth than by all means use the larger coil. Don't be afraid to experiment with the GM1000.
