  1. I remember back 3=5 years ago a post from someone that was near pyramid lake took a break from driving and detected a wash heading toward the lake. Got a faint signal and found a nugget under volcanic tuff flow about 6-10 in down. I might have the info all wrong but I remember that it was under a volcanic layer and wondered if this had any indicator about rye patch or anything in that area. I'm in NC killing some time for a hip replacement to heal, 2nd in 5 years, wonder if I'll every get back to Az, NV, Ca so I enjoy what you fellows are doing. Does anyone else remember the post I refered to and if so any follow up. Wyndham
  2. I've done what you have done in the past and hoped to find a better method but maybe there's not, too many variables
  3. Looks like my question ranks about the same is "How do you cut & polish Moose Jade" Oh well Wyndham
  4. Many years ago when I lived on Silver Peak, Nv, I started dabbling in polishing some turquoise rough into free form cabs and set them in some sterling pendants I made. That was then (1976) and since have gone into pottery back here in NC. I have started getting interested in doing some more pendants and cabs. I have no idea what to price(per gram or per piece) for a finished cab. If I buy some good hard turquoise rough for say $5-$10/gram( just an example) what do folks add as a markup to the finished cab,double rough gram price or 3x or ??? Thanks for any help, just looking to add some turquoise pendants to our potter jewelry that we do now Wyndham https://www.facebook.com/Wyndham-Brooke-Haven-Pottery-147683901943610/ .
  5. Got a question on greenstone. Is it similar to slate/ The reason I ask is because here in NC the gold is associated with the slate belt that runs N-S in the middle of the state. Quartsruns up through the slate and some is gold bearing also associated with Rhyolite veins. Just wo dering
  6. Jim, and all others here, you don't know how close I come to chucking it all, getting a 7000 amd do as Jim suggest.It's not that I have any material gain, just the contrary ,at almost 69 yrs old and one hip replaced and the slow economy, reality hits me like a cold shower, but the dream of tramping the area Jim talks about almost overcomes common sense. So i will think of all the places I used to know about, consider others that Jim has spoken of and enjoy the success of all that find and post those glimers of gold. BTW, my wife, is also a steadying rudder on my dream dingy. This post is a thank you to all that myself and I'm sure many others enjoy your stories of family, pets, sucesses and failures. Have a good Memorial Weekend Wyndham
  7. There must be other taxes before the per gal state and fed taxes, production, shipping, who knows how many along the way based on oil prices Wyndham
  8. Ok today gold is $1196, oil is $54-$56/ barrel. Do I get a better value by putting $2.27/gal gas in my car or waiting for gold to rise in price. For me gas is a better investment to make a living than playing in the gold futures market. I'm also a potter and fired a propane gas kiln which I just filled up at $1.26/ gal where a year ago I paid $2.56/gal I use about 100 gal per firing so I'm making more even if gold had stayed at last years prices. The government needs more $$$$. They are spending so fast that if the economy does not restart, I think there's a tipping point some in washington fear is about to hit after the first of the year. Our oin production from fracking has caused the price drop in oil, which on the one hand is good for us, but bad for taxes on gas and oil. So maybe the government wants to suppress the price of gold to keep the dollars in circulation instead of running to gold. It's as if you had several mines producing, you'd push the one that produced the best and trim expenses on the one that was breakeven or marginally producing a profit. The government is a crack addict for dollars and it will sell it's own people to get the money. Of cource I could be wrong and the USA is really Disneyland where everybody gets a free ride and the Big Rock Candy Mtn is in Washington, DC Money is only as real as people are willing to believe it is an gold is just a heavy burden if you can't trade it for food & water Just a thought after Christmas Wyndham
  9. From the looks of the models they're using, I'd say they want the Harley upscale yuppy market. "Lifestyle??????" Somebody in the company has sold them a marketing plan much like a ssalted claim. Just my o pin yun Wyndham
  10. That's some great info, looking forward to SC & NC when you get a chance Wyndham
  11. Just checking, this sounds like the Paiute indian massacre of the red haired giants that were holed up in a cave and smoked out when they tried to excape were killed. Maybe the Mormans found the cave and the giants. I like this,I'm in for....$2.28 in my pocket. Need to get there before the winter catches us and we have to hole up in a cave with gold and giants and the UN comes with black helicopters.... But thaat's another story. But then again, it could be real??? hmmm Wyndham
  12. Hey Chris, if you were to screen the DW fines, what would you guess the smallest would be, 40 mesh? 80 mesh? From the photo's they look mostly 20 mesh and bigger. You sorta gave me an idea, dangerous as that might be, that there's an alt method for reworking some places off the gold maps. Hey I'm back East and prospect over everyone's shoulders on the forum.Everytime I get on the forum, someone like you get's the fever going again. Thanks Wyndham
  13. Thanks, I was looking to make one myself. I ssaw they upgraded to heat hardend hammers. Did you go with hammers are stayed with the trucking chain? If you went with the hammers, how did you attach them to the shaft? Anything else I might want to look out for. Thanks Wyndham
  14. I saw this rock flailer/hammer mill on you tube the other day as well as several homemade ones, one powered by a chainsaw. Just wondering if anyone has tried any of these and what the general opinion. Even thought the one in the video is a $4,000 comercial unit, others have made their own . Just wondering, Wyndham
  15. Mike, you might take a few low to medium value coins to a coin show and gague the reaction of the dealers you talk to. This would be a way of learning what the dealer say, how they respond to your inquiries, etc. If you belive silver will go up 20 to 50% In a few years hold on to what you have, you have a built in hedge and if inflation hits like it did with 20% interest, you are sitting fine. You might trade numistic value for gold or silver bullion, locking in collector profit. Just a few thoughts Wyndham
  16. If we had a fair and just government, the feds should have been paid $20x10 =$200 which was the true value of the coins in 1933. The face value of the coins should have been the issue not the collectable price or at the most the current gold price/oz. Wyndham
  17. Ok, it's taken me about 6 to 8 months of not looking at this forum and a stout dose of liquid meds to rid me of gold fever......until today. It's back and that vid of the gold and the black sand did me in. That first post made me google "Mormon Treasure" and that was another relaps. Well, I guess I'll sell everything, including my neigbor's dog( he used to be mine till I tried to train him to sniff out gold nuggets and he left me for my neigbor who lets him be a regular coon dog) and go find a treasure somewhere in AZ. Like Jim S. I've got a new hip but can't bend down too much, so I guess I'll get my wife to do the diggen and I'll do the beepen I haven't told her that part yet, I maybe should wait til later. If you don't hear back from me, she said no... with my fav fryen pan. Good luck please get the gold before i get there, gold fever is too big a burden for folks like me. Wyndham
  18. It's been about 20 yeas ago, I was camped out near prisoner lake(I think that right) a few miles down from Flaggstaff. The first evening i hear a pack of Cototes come by yiping and barking to one another. The best i could translate was something like "Do you see that tent, it wasn't there last night. Who would ever pitch a tent right where we walk every night" "Yea these tourist are going to drive me crazy, well lets go and let him get some sleep" That was the only night I heard them but I saw them walk by on my last night there. Wyndham
  19. Hey Jim, it's going to take a little time but I bet you already feel years better. I had a hip replaced in Dec that I had needed for 4 years earlier. Just be carefull not to over extend or bend in the wrong way and pop that puppy out of the socket. I had a good Doc and good hospital care. Take some time and go carefully. Good luck Wyndham
  20. Just a thought. We need a really BIG Political Dog that will fight for our rights and tear down the eco groups bent on destroying citizens rights to use our own fed, state and private lands. I doubt the current Repub canidates even know what's happening in this country. Where's a president with balls? Wyndham
  21. Have a friend that had their site hacked and all their banking info and $$$ stolen. I was on their biz mailing list and got almost the same email. Bad news all around. If anyone knows Gary, maybe call him and have him check his banking acct and cc's. Don't email because his acct may be hacked. Wyndham
  22. hey thanks for the meteoritical bulletin, had a chance to see some local places as well as those out west. Easy to get the bug thinking about all those places I used to visit with those dry lake beds near Tonapah NV. Thanks again for the links. Wyndham
  23. I've got a chance to get back out west maybe after the first of the year. I've got a gold bug detector so if i go I could use a ref book . paper back would be great. Any thoughts. I would likely try gold basin or where ever It looked promising. I might have a month or so and o=work out of AZ BUT.......I live in NC so east coast areas might work out in the spring before the snakes come out. I've heard of a large meteorite found near here, Asheboro NC but it was a door stop for 20 yrs and no one knows where the strewn field might be. It now is in the museum at state capital, I believe. Thanks for any help. Wyndham
  24. Hey I'd be happy with any of these and a place to get out and roam around. From my POV any of you guys have it great to be able to get out and go. Anyway like Mike sez, it's all really good campfire talk.If you want more, buy more. If you can't deal with what you have. I've got a GB and i can find shoe tacks with the best. Reg may remember from other forums that I tend to come up with some off the wall questions. This goes for all detectors. How about an app for Ipad/Android/etc that takes the output from the signal or somewhere along the signal path and does some digital signal processing to a visual on the screen. Later Wyndham
  25. Hey Reg are these coils water proof for streams and wading at the beach in salt water? Wyndham
