Gold Prospecting Equipment/Metal Detectors for Gold Nuggets

17 August 2014 - 06:33 PM

Hello All,

 

   Over the years I've had customer ask if I'm willing to trade quality gold nuggets (clean nugget gold) for gold prospecting equipment, searchcoils and metal detectors.  For the longest time I have stayed away from that market, as it's work for me to resale the gold trying to make a few bucks.  

 

Talking with a customer on the phone today, he said he was waiting to get his funds from the refinery and then he is going to purchase a new SDC 2300.  I asked him how much he was getting per ounce and he said 80% on gold that is .900 fine or better.  

 

If anyone is looking for a prospecting item, I would consider trading items/searchcoils or even maybe a detector if the gold was good quality.  I'm willing to give you 80% of current spot value for the gold nuggets towards any purchase.  This at least allows a customer to get the product(s) in their hands without having to hassle with selling gold. 

 

I would prefer to see the gold nuggets first hand before the trade.  I want to inspect for quality and purity (Yes I have access to a XFR Allow Tester). 

 

Just something to consider.

Short Hunt Saturday Evening

17 August 2014 - 04:43 PM

Hello All,

 

   Lately I haven't been able to swing the detector much due to the work load and business.  At the last minute Saturday afternoon I told myself I couldn't sit around anymore, needed to get out for a short hunt.  I loaded up the GPX 5000 and gear and headed to a spot to see what the recent Monsoon storms have done.  The particular spot was great many years ago and always a good producer after a good storm system. I guess it's getting to point the easy gold is gone and the storm not doing enough to move the overburden in the right spots.  

 

I did manage to dig a handful of iron rubbish, a few lead bullets and one Gram sized gold nugget shown below in a bedrock crack.  

 

Sometimes the exercise and the fact you're away from the stressful city life is worth the weight in gold.

Wanting Info on Holbrook Meteorite

16 August 2014 - 09:50 PM

Hello All,

 

   I might be up in the Holbrook, Arizona area for a few days in the near future and wanted to know if anyone could share information on the strewnfield.  I would to have a chance to find one of the small, Holbrook Meteorites, so any help on where to search and what method (magnetic cane vs. VLF metal detector)  is best would be appreciated.  

 

Thanks!
