  1. Well I have to say the damp ground helps a lot. I pulled a number of small pieces of small lead but also this 2.8 dwt out of a patch I have racked down.
  2. I gotta say the Badger claim sounded really good and I'm not surprised it sold so fast! The Hard rock mines are cool too is there any information on their production?
  3. Do you think when the ground is wet or damp your detector runs better. Can you go to a patch you have cleared and out pops another piece of gold?
  4. It took me 2 years to find my 1st piece of gold and another 2 years to understand what to look for. Best of luck!
  5. Very cool. I kind of like the square nails and just finding targets. It is an indication nobody else has been there
  6. Rob The nails, wedge and bullets don't look that old. When do you think it was last worked?

    I would be interested in trading the 2.36 specimen I posted a while back for the SDC2300

    I'm in no hurry I have had it since 2008 and enjoy having it sit on a shelf in my Kitchen.

      Sorry ... But decided to keep the SDC.

  8. Thanks Tom Any thought on cleaning it up would help too. I put it in white vinegar and salt. The result is what you see in the picture. I had a thought for the pendant idea that goes with your idea of a silver ribbon. I could cut it in half and mount each side to a dime or something similar maybe a little smaller. Thanks
  9. Thanks, Adam Do you have an example of what you're talking about? Here is a couple of more shots on a Dime for size reference
  10. It is 1.4 grams, so a little smaller than a dime. What would you use to make a pendant out of it? Here is a plain Jane from the same area
  11. I thought I would share this specimen I found the other day in an area that has probably had hundreds of detectors run across it. I was thinking it would be nice to drill an eye hook in it and make a pendant out of it.
  12. Rob I hunt the smaller VHF detectors and often times find small gold left behind by the GPX detectorist. The gold I find is generally too small for the PI GPX to hear or the target they were after were just that much bigger. Either way even though the VHF finds very small gold it leaves behind the gold that is even to small for it to heat. Beside weather has replenished your spot.
  13. That is some shapes that I have never seen in gold in Arizona. It looks like California gold to me due to the tumbled round river worn gold look. But what do I know just a guess
