LDMA Name Badges....  Are these still available?  If so, please provide a link.  

 

When my mining partner (spouse) and I joined up in June, we thought that a LDMA Name Badge would be easy to find and acquire.

     Brad, do you get the Pick & Shovel Gazette?  If so look under Miners Marketplace.  Or call Barry at 530-501-6009 or you can also try " Engraversintime.com " or e-mail " engraveit@netzero.net ".     Ron

- I second the Hermit Picks!
- A wide variety of CMS or K&J Rare Earth Neodymium Magnets (especially Countersunk for adding to Poles and Shafts)
- Snake Guardz in different colors.
- Estwing's Picks, Rocks Chisels, Rock and Crack Hammers, Pry Bars Etc.
- A set of Small Stone Chisels
- A set of 8" to 24" Heavy Duty Pry Bars
- 3 to 5 feet long "Plumber Spade" Pry Bars which are great for Mining. (Anyone who caught an episode of Prospectors, would have seen these commonly used)
- A MUST - This is the best, high quality rig, set-up for anyone who likes to keep their tools close or on them while Prospecting, Mining or Metal Detecting: The Camouflaged Mullet Buster Suspension Rig from Bucket Boss. Made of Mossy Oak rip stop 600D/poly fabric.
- The Estwings Harness Belt and Bags (great for Rock Hounding and Prospecting)
- A varity of Finds Bags, I have several different ones that I love. (Will return to list my favorites later)
- A wide varity of crevicing tools (Will return to list later)
- A good set of Tweezers and Surgical Picks designed for Gold Prospecting. (I can get the brands out there if needed)
- Field Magnifying Lupes
- Tool Bags heavy duty enough to carry everything to and from the field. (I have so many and sadly still haven't found anything I feel is perfect but I am currently using a Large Military Canvas Duffle Bag with Side Access Zippered)
- A framed Back Pack for tools (will list best choices when I return)
- Non-Metallic Tactical or Work Boots for Desert and Mountain Prospecting i.e. Bates makes some really good ones.
- Wet Suits and Water Waiters
- Many more Metal Detectors especially the most popular Nugget Shooting machines. (I will START with a Garrett ATX and add more later when I return.)

( I HAVE ALOT MORE BUT RAN OUT OF TIME - I WILL RETURN TO EDIT AND ADD)

I add to the Hermit Pick. I use mine detecting and digging to get paydirt to sluice and at hone to weed the garden. They are great all around tools.

I was going to edit my post, add details but maybe it's so old that my suggestions wouldn't be read by the powers that be... Not sure. Am I too late to the party? LOL

Shane, this party never stops!  It is never too late to add to the wish list.  Paul and GPAA staff are always looking to improve our experience with the right tools for the job!

I took a torsion bar from a Ford Ranger, cut in half.  Put a chisel tip on the cut ends.  Has the big hex head on the other ends.  Used for breaking open cracks in bedrock in conjunction with a 4 lb hammer or bigger. 

Something along those lines might be feasible.

How about the Minilab Gold Monster 1000? If you would offer it I would possibly buy it along with the original rotating pan machine. I'm sorry, I can't remember the name. The one that folds up and is easy to carry in a back pack.  











  If you can't offer these, do you know of anywhere I might be able to buy  one used?

Gloves, but really good flexible so you can dig with your hands and will last more than a couple of hours. I chew up gloves , sometimes 2 pair a day.

Would love to have and will be the first in line to get my hands on a current printed edition of the GPAA miners guide. It would be a much added asset to my current month-to-month GPAA membership.

There is a crevice tool that 2-Toes and others on U-tube uses, that I can't seem to find anywhere, I found something simular
but not the same as theirs, something of a long knife with an upwards curve to it and a strong handle, probably about 10"-14",
hopefully someone knows what I talking about,
Thanks all,
Sergio

Thanks Joseph,
I guess I should of thought of that, I thought maybe a supply store had them. I will contact him.
2-Toes vids are very informative, he knows his stuff.
Thanks again,

Ancient thread but I have a request, I would like to find (finally) a 2 screen set of classifiers that
A) is not plastic B) doesn't cost arm/leg C) Lasts
I am planning to run a Gold Cube this summer and need a no-nonsense solution for screening down.
I know the trommel is an option but I am partly doing this for my health and classifying is a big part
of that exercise plan. Classifying is one of the major points of using the Gold Cube so it's a requirement
in order to operate at it's potential. Any advice, recommendations or links to products appreciated.

BTW: I am new to this - I got my "experience" as a young man in the Superstitions - never had gold
fever or the "gold bug" but love the sound of gravel washing in my pan and the smell of bullshit around
a campfire. Hope to see you out there!

A Sawyer squeeze bag water purifier. Super light and easy to use. It's allowed me to stay in the field all day without lugging water. I've been using mine for years. Reverse it to unclog it and keep on finding gold!

Super fine screen sets 40 mesh to 200 mesh and not the 5 gallon pail size. Would be nice to screen the flower gold better for the miller table. I run a raptor flare with extension to get the flower in the area and its been difficult to find the smaller screens to to help the miller table along
