Feel free to add any of your essential tool(s) list that you think we should carry in the store. We are looking to beef up our inventory and get everyone more of the tools and products they need to bring home the gold!

1 Replies and 382 Views The gold was Supposed to be there according to the indicators.  382  1 Started by  guy@guydewhitney.org I just got back. A spot too far downstream from a gold source can have virtually all of the nice indicator rocks and amazing looking gravel bars and still not have an appreciable amount of gold because gold is 5 times heavier than anything else in the river except platinum. So there will be a bottom edge of nice prospects that fail to pan out If you have found wonderful indicators but little or no gold it would be well to work further and further upstream. Unless you reach a point where the i...

8 Replies and 10194 Views Gold Bug Pro  10194  8 Started by  worldavi@gate.net Just wondering if anyone that owns one of these ever had a problem as I did this weekend with mine. I was out in the fields Northern Nevada this weekend, battery was full, no power lines around anywhere and the machine just started going erratic, making a stuttering, spitting sound. Even after I shut it off and turned back on it just resumed acting crazy. It was doing this even with the coil off the ground 2 feet. So I quit using it, and about hour later I tried it again and it was fine. I can s...
