19 Replies and 25736 Views Finding gold in a stream with balloons  25736  19 Started by  charlotte49er Next time you're at Wally World add these items to your list.   Children's balloons, fishing line/string or twine & split shot lead sinkers. (Less than $5.00 total, and it will probably last you all season.) Find a spot in the creek where you want setup equipment then go up stream a bit. (Anywhere from 50' to a 50 yards depending on the stream.) Take about 3ft. of twine string fishing line. Stay away fro ribbon, it floats. (Actually you want about 1 1/2' longer than the stream is dee...

0 Replies and 1578 Views diamond prospecting  1578  0 Started by  rrhobdy Now that I am retired, I took up the hobby of diamond prospecting.  It uses the same equipment as gold prospecting and very easy to do in some of the most beautiful scenery there is.  If you want to start, try Crater of Diamonds first, where you will get to learn about diamonds.  Then read up on the internet on where there are diamonds to be found elsewhere in the USA.  I prefer Colorado and Wyoming which has a history of finds.  There is an old saying: ' If you want to ...

3 Replies and 12303 Views Panning practice at home  12303  3 Started by  17CCRAMER@GMAIL.COM My father taught me this. You get some dirt in your gold pan (a normal pan full ) then you put about 10-15 steel BBs into the dirt and mix it in. The steel BBs are not as heavy as gold but heavier than the dirt. Pan normally until you get your 'concentrates' and see how many BBs are left in the pan. This is a good way to see how much gold you are losing when panning also. My father was a professional gold miner for big companies in California and Nevada. His hobby was prospecting. If y...

5 Replies and 10773 Views weighing gold  10773  5 Started by  dsabbo@sbcglobal.net I have an old vial with a small amount of gold in it.  I would like to weigh the gold to see just how much is in there. I just bought a small digital scale but now I'm wondering just how to weigh only the gold. I can weight an empty vial, but not the amount of water unless it is still mixed in with the gold.  Now, somewhere and long ago, I read an article about just how to do this, but I can't remember where or when or how. Any suggestions as to how or where I might have read about th...

8 Replies and 14076 Views What Classifier Sizes  14076  8 Started by  civilian_again@yahoo.com I am looking at getting more classifiers. I have the 2 (1/2') and 8 (1/8') mesh classifiers by Keene. I am going to use a 100 for (Blue Bowl and Miller Table). What sizes do you feel are best to add before the 100 mesh or can I just go from the 8 straight to the 100  My concern is having to much to dig through, in the classifier, if I make a big jump like this. Thanks

First to those familiar with CB Radios TX Gain is more power out and RX Gain is receive, so this said all metal detectors currently used for the most part are VLF or PI and even ZVT, but all are ruled by their RF function in that if not set properly you will miss targets.
