  1. Hello All, Well I was able to get out for a few hours with my Daughter. We dug a bunch of rubbish with the Minelab Gold Monster and GPZ 7000. Towards the end of the day, I finally scored a very nice 1/3 ounce gold nugget. It weighed in at 7.8 Dwt's. I was pretty excited since it's been months since I have really been out metal detecting. Wishing you all a success hunt. Rob
  2. Hey Guys, Here is part 2 of working this old placer area here in Arizona. Man, it was warm out there, high humidity and high temps. If you enjoy the videos, please subscribe to our channel, click that LIKE button and right that BELL button.
  3. Hello All, We all know that it only takes one nice, big nugget to start a small modern day metal detecting gold rush. I'm sure the prospectors in Arizona remember the famous Stanton, Arizona "Tongue Nugget." This piece was around 28 ounces, not by far the biggest found, but sure started a gold rush down South of Stanton, Arizona. Other nuggets like the recent California "Butte Nugget" have re-sparked interest in metal detecting the California placers. There still are a lot of big nuggets being found, some being shown, others kept secret. Another place up at Rich Hill was the 24 Karat Gold club. This club would perform pushes with a large dozer in known gold patches. Hundreds of nuggets would be found after each push, and nuggets continued to be found in old pushes for years after as detector technology got better. Here are some of the nuggets I have recovered from some of the 24K pushes years ago - Pictured above is appox. 6 ounces of nice placer gold found by the webmaster using various Minelab metal detectors. It's still out there ....
  4. Hello All, Yesterday a partner and I decided to take advantage of the nice weather and get out and swing a bit. Luckily, it only sprinkled a few times, not enough to get us too wet. We both concentrated on a large section of exposed bedrock, but loaded with rubbish. After a long hunt, this is what we turned up. Biggest piece is over a Dwt and around 4 Dwt's total weight. We both were using Minelab GPX 5000's with Coiltek Elite Mono Searchoils. It's out there .....
  5. Hello All, I talk with a lot of customers daily, besides all the emails and PM's. One thing many guys talk about it finding those big gold nuggets. Well they are still out there, but the ratio is low compared to smaller gold. There are thousands of smaller nuggets under a few Dwt's compared to just one gold nugget over an ounce. Here is an example of over 200 nuggets, only 4 of them over 1/4 ounce in weight. The three larger ones are in the 1 to 2.50 ounce range, but take a look at all the dinks and smaller .5 - 1.5 Gram sizes. Just thought this would be a good conversation thread. Rob Allison
