  1. Yes he did. He worked a mine east of Independence near Majourka canyon. He had painted a seascape on a rock outcrop. I was there once many years ago and found the painting and his diggings near the spring.
  2. I just received this email! American-Made White's Metal Detectors View this email in your browser Important Information from White's Electronics June 18, 2020 To our valued White's Dealers- This is a very difficult message to write, but the time has come for retirement from White's Electronics. We are suspending manufacturing operations at our Sweet Home facility while we re-evaluate the future of the company. It is never easy to make these decisions, however, we are faced with the reality of intense competition in the industry and ongoing counterfeit instruments coming from China. Lastly, there have been critical material shortages since the Covid 19 shutdown that we now find insurmountable. All of us here in Sweet Home are grateful for your service. We consider each you part of the White's extended family. Sincerely, Ken White American Made Metal Detectors since 1950 sales@whiteselectronics.com • 1-888-666-6121 Copyright © 2016.

  3. White's GM3 Goldmaster for sale $300 shipped to lower 48 states. Works as it should.
  4. Yes, he was a good friend. I went on many detecting trips with him. Spent some time at his home. He lived a few miles south of Coarsegold, which is about 50 miles north of Fresno. He had so many stories to tell. Miss him and the good times we had. RSJ
  5. Chuck, You can check out this link. Steve lists several detectors that are great on coins and gold both. http://www.detectorprospector.com/gold-prospecting-guides/steve-guide-gold-nugget-detectors.htm I have a Minelab X-Terra 705 and a Fisher Gold Bug Pro. Both do well on coins using the 10" elliptical coils.
  6. Charles Garret who along with his wife started Garret Metal detectors in 1964, Passed on 4/3/2015. Sad news indeed. First time I ever tried nugget hunting was at Quartzite with a Garrett Deepseeker. It worked, I found several nuggets.
  7. Thanks for the post, Jennifer! I enjoyed it very much. For those that didn't like it! Tough! Get a life!
  8. My guess is that both the coil and detector together are the new technology.

  10. The Forest Service (circus) is full of green weinies these days and they consider that it is their forest. Anything over pick and shovel and hand work they require a POA (Plan Of Operation). They get every agency involved that they can to delay and obstuct your mining. I requested copies in writing of the laws that give them this authority. They told me to request those through the "Freedom of Information Act" FOIA. This govment is way out of hand. I guess I should threaten to sue every one of these jerks individually for over stepping and abusing their authority. It's kind of like the IRS. They don't want to show the laws, because there really aren't any, just policies and codes.
