0 Replies and 1841 Views Detector coil test using gold bug pro and x terra 70  1841  0 Started by So I designed a test to see where under my coils I was actually detecting using bird shot as an example taped to a card with target lines. I made two videos of the test using two different styles of coils to help gpaa members and others with their detecting. I set up both detectors for general detecting. If I was going to be in one spot I would set up my detector hotter or more sensitive. Here are the links. Just copy and paste onto your search bar. https://yout...

3 Replies and 20607 Views Burnt River, Oregon  20607  3 Started by I'm going to be heading to eastern Oregon in August to do some metal detecting. I have a 3 day pass for the LDMA Blue Bucket camp and I'm going to check out the 3 GPAA claims on Burnt river. I'll be using a Goldbug2 and I'll be looking for the real small gold. Has any one metal detected on the Blue Bucket camp or any of the GPAA claims on Burnt river. I've had a hard time finding any information or comments from people metal detecting these areas.

3 Replies and 16395 Views Search coils  16395  3 Started by Hey all Got a coil question for you guys. I've always done well in hard hit areas with a 8 inch coil. I generally use a 14 inch coiltek elite and switch to a 8 inch mono commander from mine lab.It really rocks in tight places and on small gold the bigger coils miss.When out last week I switched over to the 8 inch in an area that was really tight with rocks and brush and it freaked out on me. I put it off as interference or something inside the coil cover ( which has tape on the seam). I too...

8 Replies and 18704 Views I am starting to get a fever again, GOLD FEVER that is...  18704  8 Started by So starting to think more and more of trying some nugget shooting again. I have been so focused on my usual relic hunting since my last nugget shooting adventure in the Arizona Gold Basin last November (2016) that I am thinking a break from it will be nice. Frankly, I haven't paid any attention to the GPAA since my last gold hunt that I am not sure what if any changes have taken place... Did we ever get an online Claims Guide Any changes to the Gold Basin Claims or any new claims in between Go...

2 Replies and 2363 Views Tnx Walt.  2363  2 Started by Recently, I talked to Walt Eason about the inaccurate Lat/Lon at the ADK in the MG. I also found a claim jumper and family up there. Walt suggested I handle such encounters by allowing the jumper to look and if he likes what he finds, join the GPAA club. That is a genius stroke of salesmanship, Walt. That is how I will handle future meetings. Tnx.  ╦╦Ç

3 Replies and 2376 Views Quartz vein  2376  3 Started by I use a Goldbug2 with a 5' coil and I'm finding a lot of small pieces of wire about the size of course hair, sizes from 1/8' long up to an inch long. I've found them in AZ on the Vulture Bait claim and in CA on the ADK claim. At first I figured it was just old timer trash, but last week I was MD the Vulture Bait claim and found an area of exposed mineralized quartz and the vein seemed to be full of this wire. Does anyone have any thoughts on this or is it just old t...

CA. a few weeks ago (found my first desert gold, 3 small pieces) is this a 40 or 160 acre claim In the MG it says 40 acres but here in claim info. it states 160 acres, not sure if they have ADK and 6 Feet under claims acres mixed up. 6 Feet Under in the MG says it's a 160 acres.
