  1. Hey Lucky, Next time you're up here i'd to take the booster out for a test drive. I tore my Koss headphone wire out of the plug this past trip, so I'm looking into other options. Jesse
  2. Here is today's finds. Jesse
  3. Thanks Rob and Lucky! I'm headed out the door to swing the 2300 for a few more hours today. Jesse
  4. Got out for a few hours yesterday to try my new SDC2300. I have to say I'm impressed with its ability to find gold in the worst ground. The nuggets range in weight from 0.09g to 0.8g. I'm looking forward to many more hunts with this new machine. Jesse
  5. Chris, it was nice to meet you for the first time in person today at the mining conference. I really enjoyed seeing your jar of nuggets from your recent trip to Australia. Hope to see you again, maybe in the field. Jesse P.S. If you ever want a tour of the lab let me know.
  6. Fake GPX4500

    Look at the pictures in the link. The front panel is totally jacked up. The 4500 has toggle switches on the front, not dials. Also the 15" SE coil never came with that kind of a sticker. Jesse

  9. Last weekend we spent saturday metal detecting and gold panning looking for some color. Sunday morning we decided to change tactics so we threw on our wet suits and masks, grabbed some screwdrivers, and jumped in the river. After about 3 hours I had a half dozen small flakes and by then my stepdad was a popsicle. He needed to get out and warm himself with an ice cold beer. Knowing that this river was slowly providing me with gold I kept at it. I continued to work the tight cracks and opening up the chunks of bedrock. After removing a nice, big slab and waiting for the dust to settle I found myself staring at the biggest chunk of gold I've ever found. I snatched up the nugget and jogged back to camp to show my find to my stepdad. At the beginning of the year I made a goal for myself: to find a pennyweight gold nugget. My next goal will be a 5 pennyweight nugget. Who knows when that day will come, it's kind of like a lightning strike. Good Luck in your hunting. Jesse
  10. Ragman, check out this website: http://geotemps.com I worked for them about 5 years ago as a geologist technician at the Midas Mine. Just a friendly reminder, mining is not for the faint of heart. Battling 115 lb jacklegs in 100+ degree temperature, and working rotating shifts that have you jumping from nights to days. My average workday was 15 hours long (12 working and 3 hrs traveling to and from the mine). Good Luck! Jesse
  11. Thanks guys. Yes Justin, those are old hard rock muck piles. Looks like the snow will be here in the morning. Time for some more research. Now if I can figure out how to run my GPX 4500.... Jesse
  12. Hi Guys, Had a great weekend. Found some nice pieces of gold in quartz and a very nice gold sponge. We crushed and panned about half of the quartz chunks from which we got signals. You can see by the pictures that these babies were loaded. It's too bad the weather's going to be getting nasty again here in Reno. Take care and happy hunting. Jesse
