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!

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
Saw an interesting Youtube video a bit ago. Guy took a lemon sized smooth quartz stone from a gold bearing river and crushed It using a steel mallet and t-shirt. As he broke it up, he checked for gold veins and found none, but panned out the crushed rock and found what appeared to be nearly 0.5 grams of nice gold flakes. Anyone else ever tried that with good results

2 Replies and 537 Views Fine stream gold extraction  537  2 Started by  sandman.mjm@gmail.com I found a decent amount of fine gold caught up in sand in a stream. I just got a blue bowl but cannot get the gold to settle properly. It keeps going over the edge of the center hole. My partner made a jig out of pvc but still needs work on getting it to work good. What is the best way to refine the fine gold out of the river sand Help is appreciated....thank you much. Michael

4 Replies and 1956 Views The gold was Supposed to be there according to the indicators.  1956  4 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...

1 Replies and 691 Views No Tips - No Tricks - Just a question  691  1 Started by  ipscone@msdsite.com hmmm... Gold has existed for millions of years. Waters where gold is found today, is almost never where it was millions of years ago. So, wouldn't it be reasonable to believe that most gold is not in most current waters That it exists where you'd likely never think to look Does that mean we have to think like a gold nugget (rock) :-)

16 Replies and 2263 Views GMT  2263  16 Started by  pyrography10178@yahoo.com I recently purchased a Whites GMT. It came with the 6'x9' Double D coil and a 8'x14' Sierra Gold Max coil.

2 Replies and 593 Views Docs Detecting  593  2 Started by  scubajimwood@gmail.com I read an interesting article on equipment and tools by Kevin Hoagland in GP Mag. He mentions Doc's Detecting as a source to order Bates boots and some other items. I tried the phone number on their website and just get an automated message that does not sound like a business. Does anyone do business with Docs and can you advise how I can contact them for an order Thank you.

2 Replies and 880 Views gold hog piglet flare  880  2 Started by  randy82271@gmail.com I bought the piglet flare a while back. No matter how i set it up i lose alot of dirt and water out of header box. Any suggestions on how to keep the dirt in the box. Ive tried all kind of angles and even turn water down to almost nothing. we usually shovel feed at a slow rate but no sooner than start dumping dirt starts coming off the back. It gets real bad if just dump a shovel and let it work down. Any ideas would be appreciated.

2 Replies and 23041 Views Gold Prospecting  23041  2 Started by  mulubishaj@gmail.com I am new to this forum but I have been reading a lot of what people have been posting. I have learnt a lot. I own a small company and we managed to acquire 2400 acres of land. Long story short, we have been finding rocks and geological deposits that point to the presence of gold and other mineral deposits in the land. I have collected samples and taken pictures of rocks, soil, land scape and I am hoping someone could look at them and help point me in the right direction.
