Comments From Youtube

I enjoyed your video's... Ive been mining in western WA for a year... not a lot of bed rock here or at least it is eight foot down to deep for me to dig...LOL so I been hitting gravel bars with not much luck but it is fun.. thanks for the vids I learned a lot..

That thing is a monster... Congrads.. How much did it weigh? I never new that a gold bug was so good. Im just trying to get into detecting. I live in Northern california and the old timers found a 54 lb nugget like 10 minuts from my house. so im trying to find some gold..

Buddy Replied:

That's a 3.2 gram nugget(50 grains) We have some good sized gold on the claim, it's just hard digging to get to it. You should be in some pretty good gold country in CA. When you get your detector, give a holler if you have any more questions on detecting or prospecting.

what coil are you using?

Is the gold bug hard to use?

what a ugly detector

Buddy Replied:

Well, my detector may be ugly, and the old guy running it may be even uglier, but that old detector has paid for itself a 1000 times over, so I guess I'll just keep on digging!!!

That is awsome. Im buying a gold bug. What do you think about the new one with the digital face? Kellycodetectors says its new for 2010...

Buddy Replied:

I have some paperwork on the new Gold Bug, and when our local prospecting shop gets one in, I'm going to check it out. If it performs as well as my original Gold Bug, and small coil is standard or at least an option, and it stands up under constant use, and is rugged enough to use as a mining tool, and not just some toy, then I would consider purchasing one.

awsome better than GMT. what's the operating freq. of the gold bug?

Buddy Replied:

It is 19.2khz.

no problem detecting that size of nugget. how about .05 gram, is it possible with gold bug?

Buddy Replied:

Through hours of practice of using a Gold Bug, I have found that the average person can find 4/100 gram pieces on a regular basis, especially when you board your material. When using my Gold Bug for serious prospecting, I can find gold down to 1/100 gram, which is about half the size of a pin-head!!

Lynx Creek, and surrounding area, located just out of Prescott, Arizona, was discovered around 1863-1864. The area was a major gold producer and is filled with interesting mining history. The area has a huge drainage system and each spring run-off and summer monsoon flooding has a tendency to move material around, replenishing small flakes & dust of gold. This makes the Lynx Creek Recreation area a perfect location for the novice prospector to get started. Try shaking out the grass roots and moss in your pan, or sweep the cracks in the bedrock. You are almost assured to find "color" and small flakes.
The gold at Lynx Creek is in the form of real thin small flakes, and there is plenty of "super dust", pin-point little pieces. This makes for an ideal place to perfect your panning techniques. I have always said, "If you can pan gold at Lynx Creek, you will be able to pan anywhere in the country". Good luck and Happy Hunting!
