  1. Almost a pro, Afreakofnature. Once you ditch that scoop and just finger those nuggets out the dirt you'll be there But honestly a scoop is nice when I remember to bring it. Packs are necessary for the hike in spots, otherwise Im a gear minimalist myself.
  2. Fishing', The 7000, SDC, and now 6000 are all hyper sensitive detectors. You will be digging plenty of trash with any of these choices. Most of us know, If you want to work the heart of the trash pile they were never good choices to begin with. Find yourself the less trashy areas, and they will shine!
  3. Wasnt Steve gone to Alaska for like two months? Hopefully he left someone in charge, or it might be a wait.
  4. You're a lucky guy Rick! Myself and friends were all over the place for some days and nothing to show. Just saw some crumbs guys were picking up in the parking lot over by the mill. Fun times anyway!
  5. Hard to believe that was 9 years ago already. I remember hearing a double sonic boom blast when it came in.
  6. You might be happier slabbing it. If the gold isnt well connected, you might just end up with a pile of flakes after dissolving the quartz.
  7. 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!
  8. Free $50 even takes it home
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. Those are just the little ones I threw back glad there's still some left. The claim RIP until the next minleab debuts.
  12. GeoJack, I detected some in the side feeders, back in the days before all the claims. Have fun!
  13. Good info Lotsaluck I found this page with more info: https://www.snakes.ngo/mohave/
