  1. Thanks Mike. Congrats to your better half. Keep up the good work.
  2. Thanks for the memories Rob. A friend of mine was among the last group of people working the Goodman Mine. They were using his backhoe with a front end loader to move the material and another guy had a septic tank dump truck which they used to bring in water that they ran through a sluice into a settling pond. They moved a lot of material and were averaging an ounce a day the last time I was in there. *Some of the real old time drywashers (Banjo Bob for one) around there also said they averaged an ounce a day. The price of gold was way down back then but they were happy.
  3. Thanks Steve. I look forward to hearing more from you. I had hoped to be hearing reports from GM1000 dealers and a few owners by now but you are apparently our only hope at this point. I have owned a GB2, a GP Extreme and a GPX5000 but never had the chance to use a GPZ. I also have no experience with the GMT. If Minelab intends this to be an entry level machine that is simple to operate, the odds are that it will be most customers' first machine and many will be thinking big. I retired and sold all my detectors but may come out of retirement. If I do so, I need a detector. I know that many huge nuggets were found with Gold Bugs. I personally found a 58 gram slug at Rich Hill with my GB2 but I remember how difficult it was to detect there with a GB2 because of the hot ground. The price and features of the GM1000 have me interested. .
  4. Steve, can you give us a report on the GM1000's ability to indicate larger nuggets -- say 1/4 oz or better -- at depth? What kind of depth can we expect from this machine?
  5. Will Minelab be slashing prices on the GM1000 like they did with the GPX & Z? Just curious. Will they be available on 5/8?
  6. It's pretty hard to beat a 1993 to 1995 Foretravel diesel pusher that will tow your jeep, pickup or whatever. Mine has a stove reefer, microwave, 2 ac units, 2 furnaces, a 6.5 Kw generator, 40 gallon propane tank, an automatic leveling system. 100 gallons of fresh water and 50 gallon waste tanks. There's quite a few out there and they can be found at reasonable prices on Craigslist http://zoomthelist.com/

    Did the monsoons move a lot of dirt and gold this summer?
