  1. Hi my name is Boomer! I'm 3yrs old and my owner thinks i'm a american staff./sharpei. I want to go prospecting really bad with my owner, he likes to dig rocks and i like to smell them. I don't think he'll let me go because he thinks I will smell this plant called a cactus and my mouth will end up looking like a angry porcupine. I've begged to go... Occasionally I sneak inside this motorized human buggy. I also got crazy and found my own buggy.
  2. Does anyone bring their dog(s) with them out metal detecting? Since i'm so new to all this and my dog has never been outside off a leash yet i'm hesitant to take him with me. But i know he'd love every "sniff! How do you keep them away from cactus? I'm assuming you can't.
  3. Thank you Trevor, great information thank you.
  4. I was wondering why I haven't seen this question anywhere. Does a bigger coil use more power?
  5. Anyone remember the old Popular Science ads? I thought this was a good classic to share. Even though this ad pre-dates me by 6yrs, it puts a smile to my face
  6. Hello, I was wondering why i don't see any Nugget Finder 17x13 EVO spoked sold anywhere. Are these rare, has anyone used one? are they nice? Thanks.
  7. Hi everyone, I'm concerned my 5 x 1oz Gold eagles could be fake I inherited these from my mother. Her late husband purchased 30 of them. They pass the "ring" test. They pass the size test. They passed the magnet test. But...they don't pass the weight test... Around 19g ea. on all of them (real eagles weigh about 33g ea.). I'm probably going to take them to a local jeweler soon. My question is we probably know these are fake so is it worth melting these down to get what gold is in these out of them?
  8. I'm curious, how does one get the gold out of the "rock", Is it smelted by a 3rd party or is it easy to do at home? Or does it have more value leaving it in the quartz?
  9. Thanks Rob. It seems weird that Minelab doesn't make the best coils. You'd think they would be the best at it. I just don't want to hurt my GPX-5000 running a coil that Minelab didn't make. As you can tell im very OCD about things lol With that said i went ahead and ordered a Nugget Finder 12x9 and a Detech 15″ Ultimate Spiral DD I should be good for life now
  10. Thanks Rob. I appreciate the information, thanks guys. Im very excited to start my prospecting season. Im heading out on my first day September 18th. (RRPC-hayden, map 23) On a side note! I ordered a Nugget Finder 14x9 and a Detech 15″ Ultimate Spiral DD I should be set for life now, lol
