  1. 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!



  2. 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


  3. 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!





    Oh, I think I found it here: http://www.dggs.alaska.gov/pubs/quad/livengood Yay google....

  4. So I have been offered to work a claim by a very friendly person, but I am unsure on how to locate the claim on the map. I have a ADL Number, And I located the region, but none of this information help me with google maps, or with the Alaska Mapper, Would anyone be willing to shed some light on how to view a claim on a map whether it be google maps or if i need to go buy a map book to match the regions.
