  3. Absolutely gorgeous country, I guarantee you will love the scenery. I've never prospected there though. Keep us posted on your trip, I'd love to hear how it goes.

    New Nugget Detectors (Lack Thereof)

    I have wondered the very same thing Steve. It seems like every month there is some newly designed gizmo coming out (sluices, fine gold recovery stuff, highbankers, etc.) but new gold detectors only show up once in a blue moon. With the huge interest in gold the past few years you'd think the major players would be cranking new models out more frequently. Would have to agree with your Minelab comments though. They are running the show on the PI's with no real competition, so I guess they can do what they want.
