  1. Hey Guys/Gals, It's been a bit since I posted anything. The forums are very slow, at least mine here. I have to get all you guys/gals more fired up to post more stuff so we all can learn from each other and share experiences. That being said, the COVID-19 really changed how we do stuff, let alone set out mass FEAR to the World. There is no doubt it's real, but I will just leave it there and talk about gold nuggets! I managed to get out recently and had a nice run of luck with the Minelab GPZ 7000. I rounded up over an ounce in one day working any old channel. All the go

  2. Hey Way2cool, Ok, I forgot in my 1 ounce story that I placed a goal of finding a 12 Troy Ounce gold nuggets (1 Pound). Yes, I did find a solid 13 ouncer. I guess I need to write a story about that and then my next goal of finding a multi-pounder ..... Good luck, right?

  3. General question about nugget detecting. I live in an area with lots of placer claims along the creek beds. There are general mountain peaks and ridges rising above the creeks. Would it be generally productive to go detecting for nuggets on the slope and ridges above known placer locations? I figure the placer gold has to have been washed downhill .... I suppose a lot would depend upon the size of the gold in the placer deposits. In other words, if it is very fine any uphill gold might be too small to detect. I'd appreciate your thoughts, Monel

  10. This isn't prospecting related (except that I can't seem to get away from work to go prospecting so this is what I've been doing to keep myself from going nutz watching all you guys find gold), but I've really REALLY gotten into cooking some killer bbq in the last few years. I've recently upgraded my equipment (after my old keg-style smoker rusted out ) and found a whole world of accessories that just have blown me away. The blog site is https://bbqheresy.wordpress.com/ and so far, I'm having a ball. Please keep in mind, the blog is in its infancy. I've got quite a ways to go to get it up

  11. Hi Rob, Just an FYI if I click on the online store tab at the top of the page it takes me to this. https://www.robsdetectors.com/ Which is OK but you need to update the story about the 12oz er. I did make it to the store.

  17. Hey Guys, Thanks for the Birthday wishes. I'm 48 now .... Sorry the forum has been so slow, I have been so damn busy and it's been pretty hard for most prospectors to be wondering around too much. Rob

  19. Ray: Sounds like you have seen quite a few pocket deposits in the Klamaths. Do you have any observations on the different kinds of pocket deposits? I know a tiny bet about gold in quartz veins in shale, and a little bit more about supergene enrichment below black shale, but not much else. Thanks

  20. It’s talk about seeing something at the latter part of October. The thing is will the 6000 be biting at the heels of the 7000 ? If that would be the case then the 7000 would have to take another step into the future. I’ll post more when Minelab calls me . haha Chuck

  21. I did a little experiment to see how effective the Gold SPOT™ Treasure Scoop Portable Gold Pan is for dry panning. This scoop was developed not only to be a more effective nugget recovery tool when using your metal detector but also as an effective tool when crevassing and sampling. This is useful when you are looking for deposits of small nuggets and flakes of gold in cracks in bedrock. So for this experiment, I mixed 1 gram of 14 mesh gold, that would be about 30 or so tiny nuggets and a half of a gram of 18 mesh gold which would be around 40- 45 little flakes total 1.5 grams with dirt and b
