    Metal Detecting In Alaska, Recommended?

    Hey guys, Just wanted to say thanks for the advice about the metal detector, decided to get a Gold Bug Pro and I am really enjoying it.... can't wait to find that, oh so, elusive first nugget with it!

    Any Clue What This Is?

    Hey guys, I got my Gold Bug Pro out today for my first real day with it, decided to hit a place in Anchorage I thought would be a good test for it, After about an hour I found my first real hit that seemed interesting. Hopefully one of you can help me identify it. It's conduvtive, non-ferrous, and not malleable.. Thanks!

    Detector Purchase A Must.

    I was pinned against sort of this same thing today, I knew I wanted a Fisher Gold Bug,, But 2 or Pro was my question... I liked the power and the price for the Gold Bug 2, but I found it to be more advanced than I wanted for my first quality detector. I am a novice in every since of the word and I felt I would spend more time fidgeting with the knobs and doing a lot more guesswork than actually metal detecting. So I decided that even though this may be the better machine for finding small nuggets at larger depths, this was not the detector for me. So I decided on the Gold Bug Pro, which ended up coming with 2 coils, the 5" and 5" x 10" ... I liked the ability to identify the signals and depths visually VS no Display at all on the Gold Bug 2 Being a Noob, I think I made the right choice...lol
  5. So, I went down to the USGS and found that Livingood is available but in Open Files, so they don't keep them on file. I went and tried to pull the report for Arlis, but the section was missing. I assume someone already had them somewhere. I don't suppose any of you guys would have a copy ? If I find it first I'll post here that I found it! Thanks Cory Oh, I think I found it here: http://www.dggs.alaska.gov/pubs/quad/livengood Yay google....

    Sorry! Wasn't trying to junk up your thread, your completely right. I guess I got a little over excited about Geophysics, It really is such an exciting subject I guess I tend to over do it.

    Locating A Claim

    Do you guys know anything about the colorado creek trail at all? I found the claim but its about 5miles NE of the Elliot ... only way I can see out there is colorado creek trail, but it looks like it may cross over the creek.

    Locating A Claim

    Thanks Geo! Apparently I was overlooking it, Looking too many places and not focusing hard enough I guess!

    Keene 4" Deluxe Or Ultra Mini?

    Thanks for the advice! These are the kind of things I wouldn't know about til after they happened, so having a heads-up really helps.
