  1. I have seen a lot of those meat bee underground paper nests this year in the Sierra Nevada mountains. The bears or some other animals digg them out at night and grub out on them!
  2. Free $50 even takes it home
  3. Maybe try the ebay thing? Some of the delicate type specie doesn't acid well and just turns into a mess of small pieces. Ive seen that happen to a few of my friends.
  4. California Motherload placer nugget exhibiting hopper crystalline structure (Chevron nugget) Unique specimen was sourced and mined in El Dorado County Weight is 0.5 Grams $50 plus shipping cost
  5. Those are just the little ones I threw back glad there's still some left. The claim RIP until the next minleab debuts.
  6. GeoJack, I detected some in the side feeders, back in the days before all the claims. Have fun!
  7. Good info Lotsaluck I found this page with more info: https://www.snakes.ngo/mohave/
  8. Minelab sdc2300 will scream on those all day long
  9. Half troy ounce sourced from California's historic El Dorado and Placer County- American River gold belt. 33 nuggets - Total weight: 15.65 grams $750 cash or paypal ok
  10. Happy Bday Grubstake, Thanks for the gold tips over the years! Wes
  11. God job Mitchel! I just got an equinox too and hope to get into the coin side of detecting a little more.
  12. No doubt, and they were right. The cemeteries are packed full from the collateral damage of our wheeled travel
  13. oh ya, looks super safe I cant imagine anyone ever getting hurt riding that
  14. Do it part time until you learn the ropes. Successful prospecting is a trade like any other. It takes time, a lot of research, fails, and days of disappointment before you get the golden results. And even when you think you know what your doing, the gold always dries up and you are starting all over. If you're up in the Trinity area, you're probably in one of the best places in CA to do it full time, once you learn the trade.
  15. Yep I see no problem with that amount of nuggets in 6 hours, or even triple that amount. When you're on a pocket, every time you put your coil down you're on another target. Dig, scratch, retrieve nugget, and onto the next one. Or to speed things up, once the sound in in your scoop or hand, toss that pile of dirt in a bucket and pan it out later. That speeds things up quite a bit.
