Bob's talk is on September 19th in Downey, 8PM. His subject is a particular portion of the Dale Mining District called the Pinto Placers, from the earliest times down to the present. He has written up an article which will be distributed at the talk, in color with a map. He is one of the best speakers around and when he gets going, everyone listens. It ought to be a memorable night.

Diggitdawg: I've used the Falcon (and still have it). This detector has its virtues and vices and is a specialty item meant only to supplement other equipment. Its virtues are undeniable, but are applicable only to a very narrow spectrum. Its vices can be exasperating, as with any highly specialized tool, and require much patience to overcome. VIRTUES: Probe-like smallness; ultra sensitivity to the smallest gold; ability to distinguish certain types of common materials. VICES: Extremely finicky and difficult to maintain proper balance; sudden, annoying screeches that seem to blow my eardrums out; so sensitive that moving the probe is very awkward if only because of the falsing induced by the wire leading from the probe to the unit. In sum, it is one of those items I could live without, but I keep it because from time to time it is just the right thing for checking samples -- especially hard rock ore samples or suspicious small stones that a standard detector can't quite figure out.
