NUGGET SHOOTER: Hunt like you mean it!

NUGGET SHOOTER: Hunt like you mean it!

Load up with know-how at Bill Southern’s detecting seminars

If there’s one ornament Bill Southern does not want to see hanging in your home this holiday season it’s a “closet ornament” in the form of a high-dollar metal detector. Think exercise equipment — a graveyard of barbells and fat-burning contraptions. The same can happen with prospecting equipment as dusty dredges get bogged down under car parts and Christmas decorations and metal detectors sit propped up next to umbrellas and folding chairs. The answer to keeping your expensive equipment out of the closet is education and a little bit of matchmaking, said Bill Southern, owner of Nugget Shooter in Morristown, Ariz.

Turbopan more than just spin

Turbopan more than just spin

Necessity, it has been said, is the mother of invention. But sometimes, the invention part can come years later, depending on when one can find the time to tinker and actually make it happen. So it was when Australian-born geologist Kim Hillier decided he would one day create a better gold pan. 
As a young man in his early twenties, Hillier had spent many hours test panning for an exploration company that was searching for alluvial and hard rock gold deposits in Australia.

A Prospector’s Paradise

A Prospector’s Paradise

The end of the road is just the beginning in Fairbanks

If adventure begins where the pavement ends, then driving from the Lower 48 to the end of the Alaska Highway has to be the ultimate road trip. And, what lies at the end of the road is a prospector’s paradise known as The Golden Heart City, about 100 miles shy of the Arctic Circle, where there is 24 hours of daylight on the summer solstice.

A FIELD TEST: NOKTA AU GOLD FINDER

A FIELD TEST: NOKTA AU GOLD FINDER

Versatility and precision at a higher frequency

When any company enters a crowded product space with a new product to compete with well-established brands, I always ask questions. I have to know if the new product is at least as good as the top dog or better. Does it really work? Does it meet a need? And, is it competitively priced? I have to say that, in this case, Nokta did the research. Their engineers took the time to ask questions of metal detectorists around the world and set out to create a high frequency analog VLF detector that meets their needs—the Nokta AU Gold Finder.

California State Parks seeks hands-and-pans-only rule on American River

Small-scale miners in California’s Mother Lode are watching history repeat itself as California State Parks tries to implement a hands-and-pans-only rule along the American River in Auburn, Calif.—again. “We’ve been through this rodeo before,” said Gold Prospectors Association of America River City Prospectors President Jim Hutchings, adding that the last time the state parks attempted this ban on other prospecting practices within the Auburn State Recreation Area, the gold miners crashed the parks’ system because it was so inundated with responses in protest.
