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

3 Replies and 1159 Views Fine stream gold extraction  1159  3 Started by 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 2406 Views The gold was Supposed to be there according to the indicators.  2406  4 Started by 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 1014 Views No Tips - No Tricks - Just a question  1014  1 Started by 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 2773 Views GMT  2773  16 Started by I recently purchased a Whites GMT. It came with the 6'x9' Double D coil and a 8'x14' Sierra Gold Max coil. I took it out to the gpaa claims in the Morristown area. Towards the end of my testing and it was getting hot. I put the big coil on. I got up on this hill overlooking a wash and started detecting. I got this positive zip zip sound. I scraped the loose gravel with my boot and still got a good signal. I scraped down another 2-2 1/2' and found a .04 gram flake of lead. I wish now I had starte...

2 Replies and 957 Views Docs Detecting  957  2 Started by 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 28758 Views Gold Prospecting  28758  2 Started by 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.
