  4. Great Deal for anyone that is looking. It was purchased from us, Rob's Detector Sales if anyone has any questions about the unit or purchase.
  5. Hello All, Here is a great find from a customer and his wife that purchased a Minelab Equinox 800 recently. Read below -
  6. Hello All, It was unfortunate to hear a long time friend and customer passed away. His wife asked me to help sell his used Minelab GPZ 7000 and SDC 2300. They were both purchased from Rob's Detector Sales on 04-20-2015, so both units are out of warranty, but in great condition. The SDC 2300 was only used 4-5 times per his wife and I know he didn't get out much with the GPZ 7000 due to his declining health over the last couple of years. The Wife would like to make this a quick sale for both, so in respect of that we are not interested in haggling. These are firm prices and great deals for either unit. Used Minelab GPZ 7000 Metal Detector, serial # 92946541669 - $5500.00 Used Minelab SDC 2300 Metal Detector, serial # 52237854552 - $2000.00 Contact me at 623-362-1459 ASAP if you're interested in either unit. The wife mentioned she is also selling his brand new Polaris side by side and GMC Denali Truck. I will get more details on these items soon if anyone is interested. Thanks!

  8. Hey Guys, Ya, what a great find in the tailings.
  9. Hello All, I haven't been doing a whole bunch of prospecting and exploring this year and now it's getting a bit warm. Here are some small batches of gold from 4 different locations. Biggest nugget is aprox. 3/4 of an ounce on the bottom left batch.
  10. Hey Brownie, Yep I done it myself. I was lucky enough to just super glue it and allow it to set overnight. It corrected the problem. I'm not sure if my battery wasn't seated well or if it got bumped in the back of the truck. Either way, Yes I broke one before.

    Dinky Dinks

    Hey Rod, All gold if fun to find, especially when you're exploring new areas. Hope these dinks turn into a much larger patch.

    Rye Patch ?

    Hey Guys/Gals, I remember the days at Rye Patch, 20+ years ago when the roads were just as bad, if not worse. I have been with guys that had blowouts. I never had one in my vehicle, but I also drove slow on the roads and had BFG All Terrains. These are are some of my favorite and most reliable tires I have used. I'm running the KO2 version now on a heavier 2500 HD truck.

  16. Hello All, I have some cracks and crevices I have been blowing a good amount of fine gold out of and a few pickers here and there. I'm curious how much gold is there, so I want to dry vac the cracks and crevices up and run it through a drywasher. I have been using a gas powered Vac-Pac for years, but want to give the electric version a try. Any advice on a good Electric Vac and small Generator to power it? Brands and sizes would be appreciated if you have used this method. Thanks!

The Burro has a 4.5" wide x 2.5" Deep Blade, Strong 1/4" Steel 3" Spike. The Hermit has a Contoured 8" Wide x 3" Deep Blade, Strong 1/4" Steel 6" Spike.
  19. Hello All, It's been awhile since I have actually been out swinging. I decide to hit some old spots with the GPZ 7000. Man, talk about being out of shape, it's only been a few months. The detector seemed so damn heavy without a bungee. I ended up getting sun burned along with a bunch of sore muscles the next day. I can see how you loose detecting strength from not going out all the time. I used to swing the GPZ all day without a bungee with no problems, but the long downtime in between sure took it's toll. That all being said, I was lucky enough to dig enough faint targets for one of them to be this nice .88 ounce gold nugget at depth. I didn't get a measurement on depth, nor did I really care, but it was deep and faint. I also found two smaller dinks during the day along with a bunch of iron rubbish. Right at an ounce of gold with all three nuggets! It was a long awaited hunt for me.
  20. Hello All, Got just a small batch in for now of Nenad's new SteelPhase Audio Enhancers. Here is all the details on them below. The are $188.00 + Shipping/Handling in the US. You can order online by using this direct link - https://www.robsdetectors.com/steelphase-audio-enhancer-nenad/ Two prospectors got together and exchanged ideas about building a better audio enhancer. A collaboration between Pat O'Connell (electronics expert) aka SteelPat, and Nenad Lonic (ex Minelab) aka PhaseTech, and the steelPHASE Enhancer name was born. Field testing of various versions revealed different sound profiles (filters) would be beneficial on different detectors and different headphones, so it was logical to incorporate switchable filters into the final product. Very low noise circuitry for the clearest amplified sound allows you hear the faintest of target signals. Combining a rugged yet stylish case and high quality electronic components, the sP01 was born. Description The SteelPhase sP01 is a modern low noise audio enhancer, with built in LiPo battery for over 20 hrs use. Unique features include a Mode switch to accept stereo and mono wiring, and a 2 position Filter. Designed and tested by prospectors for prospectors, with very good results on the Minelab SDC2300*, GPZ7000 and GPX series. It works extremely well with headphones and external speakers alike. Perfectly suited to most detectors, but will provide excellent results particularly on gold detectors that have a faint signal response. Most detectors put out very clear audio, it’s usually the play back device that lets down the audio path. With the sP01, the Filter control allows you to control how much clarity you want coming through. When using stereo headphones, the Mode 2 position also opens up the audio, giving more clarity, with minimal background noise. Features Easy to use Rugged construction Compatible with most detectors Low background noise and hiss 3 selectable filter options 2 switchable output options Broad volume range for precise adjustment USB rechargeable LiPo battery Over 20hr run time High speed charge time Compact and lightweight Military grade components High quality aluminum enclosure Urethane coated pcb for corrosion resistance Professional grade plugs and cable Manufactured in Victoria, Australia Filter Switch This selects one of three different audio filtering options. Each filter has been designed to enhance the signal without boosting unwanted noise. The optimum setting will depend on detector setup and operators hearing preference. Mode Switch Position 1: Used for both stereo and mono wired operation. Position 2: Used for stereo wired headphones or stereo wired dual speakers only. Package Contents 1 x sP01 unit 1 x heavy duty, high quality audio cable, fitted with Amphenol 6.35mm audio plugs 1 x USB charge cable Instruction Booklet
  21. Hey Old Tom, It's great to get out, I sure wish I can do the same. Heck, I'm broke down at 45 🤢 Yes, still a lot of gold close by, you don't always have to hike many miles.

    Weaver Mining District - Seen a Sign

    Hey Mike, I was thinking it was probably three before, I just never really seen it. Normally there is a ton of cars and junk in front of that building, so it might of just been less visible before for me. Weaver seemed like a decent club and some decent claims for many years. Too bad these clubs can't stick around longer.
  23. Hello All, Forgot to mention some time ago I seen a Yellow "Weaver Mining District" sign on one of the shop in Congress, Arizona. It was the shop on the East side of the road, used to be Ed Gregory's old place. I wanted to stop in and see what it was all about. Not sure if it's something old, but I just never seen it there before. Wasn't sure if the Weaver Club was popping up one again. Anyone seen this or know anything about it?

    Nice day out

    Hey Tom, Thanks, we are all stuck working when this beautiful weather blew in ...... Sure wish I was out there swinging today or even tomorrow. Congrats on the nice gold nugget. Always fun to hit new washes or even re-visit areas you found gold prior.
  25. Hey Fred, No question about that, I'm getting older and can now feel it. It don't help when I take these long stretches of not detecting as my detecting strength weakens .....
