  1. There is a lot of political and economic uncertainty in the world today. I'm reading that a lot of people in foreign countries are already building up their purchases of gold and silver, for fear of uncertain times. Central Banks of foreign nations are also building up their inventory of gold. The Russian and Chinese governments have been purchasing gold hand over fist for many years now. What do they know that the average citizen doesn't? It will take a lot more time for the citizens of the USA to get their heads out of the sand and start purchasing their share. When this finally happens, physical gold will become scarcer and scarcer, then more and more people will begin to or try to buy it. The price will go into the stratosphere. Hedge fund managers are already encouraging it for portfolios. Personally, I am keeping my precious metals as a "rainy day" fund. When the crap hits the fan, I will be good. Remember this Golden Rule: " He who has the gold, makes the rules." Cheers,
  2. Ah, to be young again. I did 3 hours of yard work this morning here in Tucson and was totally trashed. Nice gold by the way. congratz
  3. Nice going. Keep up the good work!
  4. Hey Adam, In your other post of Theace 115, you said that you always find it hard to get gold nuggets. Sorry man! You make it look too easy. Nice looking "not very easy gold" Congratz!
  5. Hey Guys, After watching your videos of finding all those pickers I got to wondering. Have you taken any of that dirt you are digging out of those cracks and crevices home to pan???? You could be leaving behind lots of fine gold. If I were you, I would check out that dirt. Just a thought. Cheers
  6. Nice going you guys. It looks like you had a gonga of a weekend. Enjoyed watching your videos. Just love seeing other people finding gold nuggies. It is mighty nice to see the younger generation getting in to the prospecting game and doing pretty well at it too, I might add. It would have been nice for us old guard guys to have had the fancy metal detectors available to us back in the day. I remember starting out with an old BFO type metal detector. Good for coins but not much else. Congratz
  7. Nice going, that 2300 sounds like a bomb of a machine.
  8. Really nice piece you have there Adam, That reminded me of a time, long, long ago, when I was hunting gold at Gold Basin in a patch that had been pounded to death. I got a double blip signal under a bush. That could only mean one or two things. Either a nail or piece of wire. I thought about passing it up but decided to get it out of the way and try under the bush again. Well, the "nail" signal was actually a piece of wire gold, similar to the one you found. Go figure. Congratz,
  9. Greetings PG-Prospecting, I know Slippery Rock Univ. well. I went to Waynesburg College (now a university) Am from Uniontown, PA. Just had to move to Arizona so I could look for gold. Bob
  10. WoW!! I'm impressed. Really nice going. When I first read the heading i thought that you misspelled "Virgin" patch. I was told a long, long time ago, as a geology student in collage, that the Potomac River had gold in it. You must be in the same area. Again, Congratz.
  11. Thanks for the show and tell. I just love seeing gold, I just love holding gold, I just love finding gold. Hell! I just plain love gold. Congrats and well done.
  12. That is what they call a fist full of dollars. oops! Nuggets too. Congrats. Nice going
  13. Thanks to all who saw my posting and a special gratitude for all the kind words from the respondent. Thank you so much, it means a lot to me. After viewing this post, I was disappointed in the quality of the pictures shown. They were a little blurry so I took more care and photoed a few more. The new pictures look much more clearer (at least on my computer). We'll see what how the new photos look on this post. Cheers
  14. Greetings, Its a boy! After 2 long days of hard labor, and under a stormy sky, the rebirth from the womb of mother earth finally came. At approx. 3:15 PM local time on Tuesday April 23, 2019 in southern Arizona, it arrived. Weighing in at 1.4 grams, with a pointy head, chunky body and a golden disposition, I decided to name this unique nuggie "Arrowhead" Along with its 2 earlier siblings, I reckon he can officially be called a patch nuggie. The delivery was rather uneventful as the soil blanket that covered him was only a few inches deep. The doctor (me) was extremely surprised due to the fact this "golden boy's" vocal rebirth scream was so loud that a butt ugly lead bullet was expected to be had. Arrowhead is so far the prettiest and heaviest nuggie found thus far with my Gold Monster 1000. Bigger and better ones will surely come to past. As our Australian friends like to say, "Its a Rippah!"
  15. Hi you'all, Heck, I have had the "Monster" for two years now and am still trying to figure it out. I read any blogs and watch any u-tube videos about the gold monster, listening to what other users have learned and try to apply their ideas. I am getting there. I can pretty much tell hot rocks apart from ferric targets (re-training my ears) from my White's gold master 3 days. Lead bullets still sound louder than gold but that may be because it is usually closer to the surface. I heard from a video, that deeper gold can still show ferric on the scale and the best remedy for that is to just dig 2-3 inches of top soil off and the true nature of the target will begin to come through. Yesterday I took my monster for its weekly walk. Went to a small 3 foot wide wash that was very sandy and loaded with black sands. The local bed rock is biotite granite and nuggets have been found up stream (I for one have found one). I set the machine to auto 1 and after 15 to 20 seconds it finally settled down and became quiet. Upon the first bedrock exposure I hit a loud target that showed ferric. I really was curious as to what the target was. About 5-6 inches down I got the target in the scoop and finally on top of the coil. It was a bloody bullet (showing ferric). This was proof to me that highly mineralized ground can and will prevent the gold monster from giving an accurate reading of the target. I dug a lot of bloody lead yesterday and a few pieces of iron (rubbish as the Australians like to say) Yea! I still have that dreaded white stripped critter on my back. Two months of punishment for many years of good days. Cheers, Bob
