  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.
  11. Jim, It's good to hear from you also. All is well here. I hope all is well with you and yours. There's a little in the poke. LOL Best wishes! RSJ

  13. The truth about the Bureau of Land Management (video) http://politichicks.tv/column/bureau-land/
  14. I totally agree 100%. I love my country, but dislike the stinking govment. RSJ
  15. In any court of law, the jury can judge the law as well as the person on trial. (This is usually contrary to the judges instructions to the jury, which are usually lies.) If the law is an unjust law, the jury can find the defendent not guilty on those grounds. Think about it! RSJ P.S. You may not be able to own slaves, but you are a slave yourself to the Govment. The principle that the majority have a right to rule the minority, practically resolves all government into a mere contest between two bodies of men, as to which of them shall be masters, and which of them slaves; a contest, that -- however bloody -- can, in the nature of things, never be finally closed, so long as man refuses to be a slave.~Lysander Spooner Do you think that we want those laws to be observed? We want them broken. There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.” - Ayn Rand
  16. Letter Re: Cliven Bundy SupportPermalink | Print Dear Editor, I am writing to you today in support of Cliven Bundy. I attended Saturday's rally at the Bundy Ranch in support of this rancher and his family. It is true that his family history of ranching this land pre-dates the BLM. It is also true that the BLM has regulated approximately 52 ranchers out of this area of Nevada in the past several years. Mr. Bundy refused to give them anymore of his money, reasoning that why give them the funds to regulate against him to remove him from the land. The BLM has frequently used the tactics of endangered species to garner public support. It should be known that the desert tortoise reserve near Las Vegas has recently been closed, according to the BLM, due to lack of funding to support the tortoises. Many have been euthanized as they are considered un-adoptable. However, that same agency without funding for the tortoises has spent millions, I would guess, building a militarized compound outside the Bundy ranch, scrambling BLM personnel from neighboring states, and hiring outside contractors to rustle Mr. Bundy's cattle and corral them. They also hauled heavy equipment onto his property and broke up water lines and cisterns that the Bundy's had paid for themselves to water the cattle. These water supplies are also used by the wild animals that enjoy the same range land. The personal accounts of the family, as they told their story, was heartbreaking. This is the instance of one rancher and his family. We are all as vulnerable as they. The heavy hand of the federal government was never so visible as it has been this past week in Clark County, NV. I am proud of my fellow countrymen and women that gathered to stand with the Bundy family. Thankfully, the BLM pulled back and for now it appears peaceful at the Bundy ranch. I was proud to be present and take a stand for the Bundy family this past Saturday. - H.D. HJL Replies: It's good to see people exercising their rights. The battle will continue on and rumors abound, so people need to keep a close eye on what is happening. What I find surprising is that the main stream media hardly covered the event at all, even when it escalated. The alternative media and Internet have proved invaluable here, as it has abroad, in keeping the power in the hands of the people. This will not be the end of this situation, and other situations may crop up both here and across the country. The people need to stay vigilant to reign in the abuses.
