Detecting for GOLD NUGGETS
« on: November 13, 2006, 01:48:37 PM »
Well lets talk about detecting for gold nugget, I have been lucky and have found many, and continue to do so. First let me say, I have been detecting for about 20 years now, started off as a coin hunter, then went to beach and jewlery hunting, I got a Tessoro Lobo ST and was useing it manly for coins, one day I was in an old mining camp site and since I did not get any coins that day, I switched to the gold hunting all metal mode. Boy I'm glad I did. Within 10 minutes of doing that I found my first two nuggets, a 7.6 DWT and a #.2 DWT. Thats how I got started gold hunting with a detector and have given up all the other types of hunting. I don't know, its just something special about finding nuggets with a detector, not everyone can stick with long enough to be good at it. #1. You have to learn to dig junk, lots and lots of it. I Have one of the best gold detectors you can buy, a minelab, Mine is a 12 year old 2200sd, since then they have made improvemets and have made 4 different models based on the same detector. But if I get over gold I get it. I have found pounds since. Nugget hunting is the love of my life, it keep me going after having 5 heart attacks and 6 stents put in my heart. If you have questions, about gold detecting ask, I'll try my best to give you an answer. Thanks Grubstake

Interesdting topic Grubstake, one which catches interest with most all.

Ryan.... per your question, "What are your veiws on dowsing?"... In reply, personally, I have known about dowsing for more years than I care to remember, but primarily for locating water.  However, during this past weekend, I have had opportunity to see the real thing in action for locating gold.... and it works without question.  Strangely though, I was invited to check out the same material and No Go.... but when touched by this individual, the rods failed not in doing their work.  And don't I wish I were among the select few who are capable of this.  The person I speak of is also a member on this forum, so I will ask when in contact with him again, if he'd care to elaborate.

Any others, with such talents ?  Or views ?

But he with a chuckle replied
That maybe it couldn't but he wouldn't be one
Who'd say so until he had tried.

Dowsing??Now that fits into the paranormal category of hit and miss and 50-50 phenomena

I got the same rod tool and its only good on full moon days when gravity is highest in some areas

I am inquiring about these claims for sale. I know nothing about gold mining, but am serious about starting. Do I need any special type of permit to purchase a claim? If I were to purchase one is it mine till I want to sell?
What is the likelihood of retrieving any gold? And if I do indeed retrieve any is it all mine?
If I purchase a claim do I have to mine it?
Thank you for your time

Hi Jim.... and welcome to the Forum.

In that one or two questions unequivocally leads to many, best you either give me a call or drop your phone number my way so I can provide you with details about that which you ask.  My number is (604) 869-5511 or send an email to larryatgpex.ca.... using the appropriate "at" symbol, of course.

Hey Grubstake are you still around.  I am planing some metal detector work up near Quesnel Forks in 2008.  Are you still active and do you still use the Lobo?
