12 Replies and 14799 Views Getting Started (Metal Detecting)  14799  12 Started by  nuggetshooter@outlook.com GETTING STARTED Getting started metal detecting for gold nuggets is as easy as buying a metal detector and hitting the gold fields right Well the answer to that one can be yes or no. There are many detectors on the market designed for different fields of the metal detecting hobby, although there are a large number of professionals that metal detect for a living. To them nugget hunting, treasure hunting, etc. is much more than a hobby this is a living and full time business to many miners! &nb...

6 Replies and 13599 Views Fine gold trick  13599  6 Started by  frankn1937@hotmail.com   This is a little trick that I have used to pan fine gold.

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
Hi, I need to vent and ask for help. I'm in north Idaho, I belong to a local club with several claims, and this is my second summer prospecting. I research, I read everything I can get my hands on, I watch endless YouTube videos, I work hard and try to work smart when prospecting, but except for three small flakes I found my first day out last summer, I'm not finding anything. At all. Even in a creek where I know there's gold - I've seen it in others' pans - but it eludes me. I am so frustrate...

2 Replies and 6509 Views I need help on what types of equipment to use  6509  2 Started by  kyleclay@msn.com I need help on trying to determine what kind of equipment I can use or convert to for 25 dump truck loads of sapphire ore I have access to. I would like to go through about 20 five gallon buckets per day. Any advice will be helpful. Just to give you an idea of what I have already done, I used a screen to wash the material about two coffee cups at a time and it took me two days to go through 3 five gallon buckets.

8 Replies and 6392 Views Carrying nuggets in the field  6392  8 Started by  tpleibel@gmail.com I am unfortunately Diabetic. My own fault and genes but I have to test my blood several times a day. The little containers that the test strips come in are plastic and have a seal that makes them air and water tight. I carry one on my pocket to put any nuggets or interesting gems etc. in.  If you have friends that are diabetic, they will have lots of these laying around.  If not come ask me on a claim, I always carry about 10 or so in my supplies to share.
