Freddy Dodge's Mine Rescue - A Must Watch Show For Anyone Thinking of Becoming a Gold Miner
As one of the country's top dealers of gold prospecting supplies, we get to visit with people with all levels of experience come in gold prospecting. We talk to people within the equipment industry, folks who have been operating large operations for many years, and those who are just not getting started learning about the process of pulling gold from the earth.
As a seller of gold prospecting equipment focusing primarily on the hobby prospecting and small scale mining we get a ton of calls from those who are just scratching the surface of prospecting or looking to step up their gold recovery efforts from a hobby to something that will actually pay off.
For some people gold fever sets in quickly and the desire to transition from a newbie to a small scale gold mining operation develops faster than a person's knowledge base to do it successfully. Imagine a person who goes out and starts panning for gold. They find a little color or stumble upon a few little "picker" sized pieces of gold. This is all it takes to get gold fever. The next thing you know this guy owns a claim in Colorado.
We get calls from customers in similar situations almost daily. They got the ground, now they need the equipment to extract the gold. Their next question, "What equipment do I need to get the gold?" And, trust me, this is a complicated topic.
This is why I like to tell people who are thinking of becoming a gold miner to start watching Freddy Dodge's Mine Rescue on Discovery Channel. This show...
XP Deus II Field Review - It Does Not Disappoint!
Our own Scrap Iron has been ranting and raving about how well the new XP Deus II metal detector is doing out in the field. He has been hunting extremely old Native American sites and finding all sorts of cool finds at extreme depths. However, we don't expect you to take the word of someone who sells these metal detectors. Instead take the word of one of our regular customers. He was one of the first recipients of the XP Deus II Metal Detector.
Terry G. from Kansas City shares his finds with us. Terry says:
"Hey Travis here are pictures of my first 6hr hunt with the Deus 2 on a hunted out civil war site here in Columbia, Tn. The site we were hunting was about three acres. I had stopped finding anything with the Equinox 800 & XP ORX. I had hunted several times with the At Max and Minelab E-Trac. I was using a modified General mode program and modified Relic program on the Deus 2. Just about all signals were very soft and deep, some were iffy. Top to right bullets, Enfield, 2 three ringers, one Williams Regulation and the rest Sharps. Part of a North Carolina Confederate spur I think. 4 buttons and a old barrel tap. Not a bad day."
Clearly those with tons of experience of using other metal detectors are very happy with the new Deus II.

Nokta Makro Legend Metal Detector Software Update
The new Nokta Makro Ledged metal detector has been log awaited, but is finally here! We are happy to say we have fulfilled all our back orders and now have a fair number of both the standard set up and the Legend Pro Pack.
News recently came out that they have already provided a new software update. This is good news. As a detector that is new to the market, there will certainly be bugs that need worked out. The good news is they seem to be on top of it....
