Hit the trail

Wow! The weather is great.The heavy rain always cleans years of debris from the slopes. The poppies are blazing orange and snakes are hungry.
Spring time and water falls off of iron mountain.I will be scraping around.

Are GPR's an imagining device ? Are GPS units position"detectors"
Are the use of dowsing rods.doodle bugs,and tossing the bones defined as verboten?
Would a "coin shooter " be stopped ?I hope not.

The largest gold nugget found in Arizona placers was in the Salt river.
Many sand,gravel,and cement operations had heavy metal recovery equip. in use .The big floods during the 80's filled in and wiped out the deep pits that searched for the pay streak.

banded cactus

I have seen a half dozen cactus banded . They all were banded on the main body.The markings were 3 and 5 bands.Areas with many banded cacti should be regarded as practice areas.Any time you come across cactus markers in groups or duplicated they could be just practice areas. Many did exist on the ea...

What is considered Treasure?

Ron, Could you answer a question or three about the "official" defination
of treasure.Could an ore body considered a trove? Will simple displacement of the ore from the lode be considered?Will concentrates be considered if processed by man but stored in the "mine" be considered a trove?
