  5. Cool pic Rob. Yah, ever time I got to Quartzsite I look at the CRIT area and think "what a shame" They are doing nothing with the land. They could make some good money if they charged to let people detect on it. Tom H.

  14. NIce fat ones! WTG. Mon/Tues were perfect detecting conditions. Go geet some more. Tom H.
  15. Hey all: Went out today with Dave and Dad to my UBER secret wash Did a lot of hillside hunting trying to find where the gold may have been coming from but to no avail. I went back down into the main wash and got the 1.5 grammer at 10 inches on the bedrock. The 1 grammer was 50 or so yards below it and was only about 2 inches deep in the gravel. (Love how monsoons floods throw gold around!) It was a perfect day for detecting. Nice and cool and the good Lord blessed us with some gold! I had been over the area I found the 1.5 in about 10 times with my Coiltek 9x14. Was using the EVO 13x17 today and it made the difference. Only dug 40 ironstones to get these little buggers Good times. Tom H.
