    Beware Of Phony, Junk Metal Detectors

    "Why let the truth get in the way of a good story!!" Such hutzpah..? Great job on putting this character in his place Reno..! The Chinese are actually making fake gold coins in authentic looking PCGS holders and most everyone has seen the 60 minutes program of the painter that faked all those "Master" paintings... Why not fake a desirable metal detector..? Couldn't understand this person's desire to prove there was no such thing possible and with such "strength of opinion"...? (a detector "dealer"..?)

    Steve's Guide to Gold Nugget Detectors

    Great info... I was looking at the Fisher Gold Bug II, but the article sent me to the White's GMT... great resource.
  3. Very good info.... thanks to all posting help here. I can see it's a swamp of alligators, but the important thing is trying to show due-diligence goes a long way to mending broken fences. I tip my hat to those offering advice..! Dave G
  4. Appreciate the reply/link, but I'd gotten to the "introduction page" and the comment on the BLM website (disclaimer?) says it all... With all the mapping grids available, plus a good, collating, software program & using a government computer this could be made easier for the recreational prospector. "LR2000 is not simple, but it is very powerful. Please read the Report Summaries and the Report User Guide on LR2000 before you run a report." I guess the old saying "nothing good ever came easy" is the word of the day... (Back to school)

    The Art Of Dowsing

    (Just posted this same reply in "dowsing debunked" thread also) When a good buddy of mine told me his father-in-law was paying a local dowser $10,000 to find water on his ranch in Shandon, California (close to Paso Robles) due to the recent drought and wells being sucked dry by all the vineyards springing up like weeds; I laughed and asked him if he was serious... The family has farmed in the area for over 100 years and yes, he was serious... This dowser found an underground river on their property (this was 2 months ago) that has water coming from the Wasatch Range in Utah (per the isotope survey of the water... that one through me for a loop) Anyway, the water is coming up in gushers and the property value sky-rocketed, so go figure..?

  7. I'm sure I read an article in ICMJ about how to "suss-out" the BLM website to make sure you aren't on someone else's claim, but no amount of searches has been successful. I'm aware of the markers and have belonged to a number of mining clubs (canceled due to moving north to Oregon). I'm primarily a metal detector looking to shoot nuggets in California, Oregon, Nevada and Arizona. I know how to access the BLM website, but understanding how to check claim status to avoid trespass escapes me... (tried BLM "help page", but got lost... Thanks, Dave
