  1. Hey All....Just wanted everyone to know my Facebook account got hacked and lots of folks have gotten hacked ... Kevin H. sent me the link to the hacker and I think, with the help of Arctic Dave, the hacker has gotten caught ... Turns out the same person has hacked many many accounts ... Their hacked accounts always end with some version of the word "jewel"..... Think FB problems are getting worse ... Sure would like to find an alternative to communicate with friends ... Cheers, Unc If you get this: https://www.facebook.com/ron.long.731572 fref=jewel it isn't me...
  2. That was cool, Doc, watching you going through the same mumbly bump stuff I've gone through doing the same procedure ... The big problem I've run into is that the host rock was only partially quartz and the other part was unknown SG ... I hit one pocket that my weighing as you did said I should have had 2.5 OZT+ but when I sent it to a very reputable refiner it came back like 1.5 ozt ... So the big problem is knowing the actual SG of the host rock ...Cheers, Unc
  3. Napa, wine country, etc., is NOT Northern CA ... Go up to Siskiyou County, Scott Valley, Happy Camp and that direction...fewer folk and more gold! ... Cheers, Unc
  4. Amazing score...maybe re-weigh...Looks more than reported gold...Slicing and cabbing could be very productive!!!! Cheers, Unc

    Rock Springs...Richard D.

    That's the way he was when he and I and Larry (a propane truck driver who worked for me and was a regular beeping buddy of Richards) had breakfast there in the Rock Springs Cafe...He had a bottle in his jacket and was crying as he snuck drinks from the bottle...I had only met him a couple times before and hunted with him out around the rock cabin on the big bend at the Aqua Fria ... Larry is the one who told me about Richard's devastation over Floyd's passing.

    When I had my emergency 4x bypass, Dr. kicked me out on the 4th day...He said the hosp. is the worst place to try to recover...Freaked me out to leave but it worked out ok...I'm sure your Dad will be fine...Cheers, Unc

    Prayers Rob...Perhaps a 4x bypass...I had 1 20 years ago + they work! Thinking of your dad and mom and your family and you...Cheers, Unc
  12. Generally, most of the experienced detectorists, especially in AZ can read ground in pictures and have a pretty good idea of where the pic was taken...There's plenty good reasons not to expose such info ... Also Rob, Bill & Chris sponsor forums to attract business and to promote the overall concept of detecting ... These three forums have had a pretty solid and unified group of folks who have spread a heck of a lot of valuable knowledge that's pumped up the pokes of most of us... All three started in 2003 and have been going full speed since, but I will agree that in the past 4 or 5 years postings have slowed alot as less skilled prospectors have become more aggressive ... I personally quit posting alot because of that ... However, there's still a ton o knowledge being shared on the forums and will continue to be going forward...Cheers, Unc
  13. Glenn based his recovery system design on a Ross Box (out of Chillwack B.C) that we used over on the Salmon River area near Sawyers Bar ...He improved some of the hydraulics ...That was lots of fun back in the day! ... Cheers, Unc http://rmsross-public.sharepoint.com/products1/ross-box
  14. JJ...Glenn is my old mining partner and that op in the video was partially ours back in the day... We made bank in those days... Glory Days! Cheers, Unc
  15. Takes a while to build a client base for your gold...Spot would be downright stupid for that collector's item!!! Cheers, Unc
