  1. I think I would leave it the way it is. there is always the option of cutting/ rock saw it/ cab it. but with so much ragged gold exposed that may not be the best option. I say leave it the way it is.. Very nice speci. AzNuggetBob
  2. I agree dig behind the dike. if you knock off a few inches of soil or a foot you may be surprised what you can detect. AzNuggetBob
  3. Jim P. I hope I've helped you out with some of my posts. I agree the net is the way to go these days. Back in the early 90’s when we made the video the net was in its infancy. It's all about advertising on the net these days. I agree, If you do it right it's free. (youtube) facebook, twitter, We poured a lot into advertising on that old video and it was old school advertising, and we still sold a bunch of them. I gave away some of them autographed as promotional items at gold shows with a detector purchase. Back then I was selling Fisher gold bugs on the side at gold shows and
  4. Thanks for your support way2cool-Jim P. I agree with you on a digital download version. But I don't own any interest in the video anymore. As a matter of fact I heard Ron Driscoll sold all the rights to some guy in N.Y. Ron was the original producer of it and got the whole thing rolling. But really I think it's time to make a new one anyway. I’ve learned a lot more about prospecting/nugget hunting/mining in the last 27 years since that video was made. AzNuggetBob
  5. Andyy I think I know what your saying. When I started using the larger NF coils. I had push the coil out as far as possible.I had to remove most all the metal on me. My big silver belt buckle with gold nuggets had to go. All the metal on my hunting harness had to go. If they come out with a new coil the gold fillings may be next. AzNuggetBob
  6. Rob I’ll tell ya back in the day (1990’s)we spent a lot producing our (VHS) gold nugget hunting video. Hi quality glossy color flyers we made for the prospecting shops, I've still got a stack of about 20 of them, mint condition. Even the art work on the VHS sleeves on the tapes. But that was back then. Most cell phones (especially Apple with their new three lens phones)have video quality as good or better than we paid the crew a hundred dollars an hour to shoot that video for us. Just sayin.

  7. Well Rob just keep making short videos and eventually you can patch them all together and make a full length video. That's what I'm thinking about doing. AzNuggetBob
  8. A newer machine and a larger coil helps especially if your going after them big deep suckers. and again, low and slow and with a big coil swing wide. If the target is not being completely passed over, doesn't work as well in auto tune, only fixed mode. AzNuggetBob
  9. Thanks fishing8046 I have always loved that avatar. Reminds me of when I was young. We are all learning here. Thanks for the thread. AzNuggetBob
  10. Oh BTW the specific gravity test doesn't factor in the iron, or other lessor metals lost in the chemical reduction, only a possible quartz and gold content. that may also help account for the weight loss in the total recovery. 🙂 just thought I'd mention that. AzNuggetBob
  11. A rock crusher works well but maybe that’s not the results you're looking for. Hydrofluoric acid works well, but it's expensive and very dangerous to breathe the fumes or get it on you. You should also consider the gold you see on the outside of your specimen may not be joined together. So when you melt it down with Hydrofluoric acid. I've burned down a few with it and ended up with a small pile of gold. it burns away the quartz but not the gold. Just put a multi-meter on the gold that is exposed and see if it is conductive/ connected throughout the specimen. You may be better off leaving
  12. You may want to consider getting a PI detector in that hot ground. I'm sure you would do better. The Whites Gold Master is high frequency hyper detector, about 48 kHz. as I recall. the Whites Gold Master is not good for hunting hot ground in general. but it will pick out some very small gold.

  13. Nice video Rob. a lot of good to know info in it. learning to read the old timers workings is the best part of working old diggings. AzNuggetBob
