The West Australian Adventure Video Blog - Part 1

November 24, 2011 04:06pm

Did I just say that out loud?’ I asked myself replacing the receiver of the telephone after talking long distance to Reno, Nevada where Chris Ralph, aka ‘Reno Chris’, the author of ‘Fists Full of Gold’ lives. Chris and I go back a reasonable distance after having met each other on a couple occasions when I was in Arizona doing lectures for ‘Arizona Outback’ and I instantly took a liking to the big friendly American with the ready smile and loud booming voice.

The Silver North Carolina Camp

November 16, 2011 09:46am

Metal detecting for American Civil War relics requires skill, the proper equipment, a good imagination, and permission to relic hunt on a property that has seen some kind of related activity. My level of skill is increasing every time I get out with Minelab’s incredible metal detectors, and my learning curve is definitely straightening out much faster when working with Bob Painter, aka “Relic Bob”...

Orange and Culpeper Virginia mineralization - Not as bad as people think

November 04, 2011 03:54pm

When the GPX 4800 and GPX 5000 metal detectors found their way onto the red clay fields of Virginia the results were outstanding in the way the detectors ignored some of the worst soils in the United States. We have seen targets come out of the ground at impressive depths and more importantly we have seen targets that were just below the surface in areas that were undetectable in the past.

There is however, one observation I made while hunting the area that I would like to pass along to those detecting in these soils...
