#262343 Prospecting Drone

Posted by DolanDave on 12 December 2015 - 06:11 PM

I ran into a guy way out in the middle of nowhere, that was using a drone like yours to fly up and down some limestone cliffs in Nevada, looking for caves. I'm sure whatever he found in these caves he was either collecting or selling, as I asked him does he go into the caves he finds, and he says no, but I noticed there was climbing gear in his truck.

  Some good finds even if it is not gold. Finding old relics is a bonus. If we could only see the history behind those relics, when we touched them.... Thanks for sharing.

  There are a lot of topics on the tones. I have had both, but your right, usually large objects have low/high tone. I have even hit nuggets with this low/high tone, so dig everything.

#256930 Yelland, NV Hunt

Posted by DolanDave on 29 June 2015 - 01:16 PM

Just got back from a successful meteorite hunt with Richard Garcia to Yelland Dry Lake. Over 100 degrees made it a little sweaty. But having the quads sure helped, as there was hardly any wind, but riding, we were able to cool off a little. Richard with his great sense, out of the blue, pulls his quad to a spot, and says we need to hunt here, and it turned out to be a great spot. My AT&T cell had 3 bars on the lake, with 4G, but Richard had sprint and no cell.

Pics enclosed,

#256589 Dry Lakes

Posted by DolanDave on 16 June 2015 - 07:17 PM



I'm from Germany and coming to the Southwest US next week, basically for photography.

But I would really find one meteorite myself one day, even it is a small and common one.

I think the Southwest is one of the best places where I maybe could find one and I would like to spend 2-3 days for meteroite hunting.

I researched a lot and I think dry lakes are a good place to go. My only concern is that they might have been oversearched already.

I also know the area where the meteorite men found hundreds of small meteorites - I would be satisfied with one.

Do you think it still makes sense to go there? I know the location but it is 5 years ago.

How is the chance to find one - especially there?

I have perfect eyesight, magnet and I am willing to spend two full days in the heat.

Anyone been there recently?

Other hints?


Regards, Tom




  The meteorite men hunted Yelland Dry Lake in Nevada right next to Ely, NV. You can still find tons of meteorites there. Right now the weather there is 85 degrees, while its 105 in the deserts. If your headed there, good luck, the small town of Ely has lodging, gas, ect.

Nice battery pack Luke,

  There is also a timing mod that can be done on the Whites TDI along with tdi folded coils which make the machine run a lot better.

#254605 Water big shots asking you to ?

Posted by DolanDave on 26 April 2015 - 06:40 PM

I maintain instruments for waste water, which most of in Las Vegas goes to Golf Courses. These people and their familys that propose these things should be the first on the list to be the guinea pigs.

I have a question : The article says over 25 miles of tunnels, if those tunnels extend beyond the property lines on top, what are the laws on that? Do you have to get permission from other property owners to mine or even go beyond your property boundaries down below?
