    I'm going to try and get out to Az for a couple months this fall.

    Octave Up For Sale--Cheap!

    Don't have any photos. Gold specimens are somewhat difficult to photograph, even among the commercial photographers. They were sold long ago.

    Octave Up For Sale--Cheap!

    I brought this specimen from Ron at the LSD outing last year. Prepped,treated and sold for a tidy profit. Over 60 pieces similar to this were found in two separate patches years ago. The sizes range from a medium aspirin to a large egg. Half had quartz but the gold was thin in all of them. No "nuggets" to speak of. Four turned out really exquisite. I'm sure most of you have seen gem grade spider webbed turquoise. Picture spider webbed thin gold veins running through pure white quartz. Of course they were treated which bleached the quartz.

    It's Bill Southern's Birthday

    Belated Happy Birthday.
  5. I was in contact with Ron Ringsrud asking him about this case. They are lowly but surely knocking claimants off one by one. Maybe in couple years this will be resolved. By the way, the appraisal of $400,000,000 is ridiculous. No is going to pay anything close that that figure if it were ever to be sold, unless it's 200 years from now and inflation is 20%.

    Huge Aussie Nugget Found......

    Sure fooled me too. Have seen nuggets in just about every conceivable shape, even some "half" nuggets. ie... Some had a crystalline shape while the other sides were flat and looked as though it had been cast in a tufa mold... But they were real as I found a few like that as did others by the Eugene Mtns.

    New Reality show- Prospectors

    This is a link to some of the fantastic amazonite and smokey quartz specimens that the Dorris family found on the show. They're towards the bottom of the page. There's also some topaz which I think were also found on the show but can't remember who found those. Anyway, they are reairing the episode this Tuesday. http://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewtopic.php?p=28653&highlight=#28653 Steve

    New Reality show- Prospectors

    Both shows tonight deal with amazing finds of amazonite and smokey quartz. Some of those crystals are stunners. On a side note, there's yet another reality show called "Rock MY RV". In this one, they take an old RV and turn into one for a specific use. http://www.travelchannel.com/tv-shows/rock-my-rv-with-bret-michaels Someone should apply have theirs turned into a prospectors RV. One with 12 Minelab 5000's that can swivel out of the side,swinging and detecting automatically by use of a central console in the living room and well as a small backhoe built into the back. What else can they come up with??? A beer brewer in the kitchen? Any other ideas???
  10. Really nice nuggets!!! Steve

    El Dorado works his magic, again!

    Great work as usual... Wish I had something like that to give Steve to work on.

    Epic Drywashing & Detecting Trip

    Wow!! Congrats Adam. Did you hike in or fly in? You look like Rocketman. What a payday both of you had. Congrats again. Hopefully there's more in the area. Steve

    Jim Straight here

    Me and a buddy of mine from Idaho checked this area out years ago. It's all mostly patented or private property (in the form of ranches) with hardly any BLM acreage in the area. There's some but even that is all claimed up. It was difficult to get permission from anyone to hunt. Found out later they've had plenty claimjumpers in the past and the only way to hunt it is if you already knew someone in the area. Steve

    How much you selling them for Frank? I'm at wits end and will try anything. Can't seem to find a commercial pair that works for me.
