  1. Another one of our own has passed over the bar...

    Darren, Thanks for letting us know. OldMan Ed led many adventures in his years and shared some amazing stories. Here are some of the pictures from our trip to Cedar Island. We didn't find gold, but we will always treasure the memories. I lost touch with him over the last few years and spoke...
  2. Could this be a Lost Pyramid in the Jungles of Mexico?

    Parachute in but no way out? Maybe go in comando style and repel from the chopper and get picked back up later by chopper. But risky if we get stuck! LOL! Sounds fun.....
  3. Could this be a Lost Pyramid in the Jungles of Mexico?

    Thought I would post this here. Its been a long time since I have been on the forums, but a friend of mine found this possible pyramid in the jungles of Mexico a few years ago using Google Maps. From the aerial image it was certainly interesting in its shape alone but when we started looking at...
  4. Could this be a Lost Pyramid in the Jungles of Mexico?

    Thanks. It really is impressive when you start to look at all the alignments. The Pyramid of the Sun aligns with the Sunset on August the 13th, this one is angled opposite and aligns with the Sunrise on Aug 13th. As the video mention, that is the day the world began according to the early...
  5. Could this be a Lost Pyramid in the Jungles of Mexico?

    A friend of mine found this site a few years ago. From the aerial image it was certainly interesting in its shape alone but when we started looking at other images and topo maps, we started to see some alignments we couldn't just dismiss. Check it out and see what you think. We are talking with...
  6. SEVENTH ANNUAL TREASUREHUNTERS COOKOUT

    I am going to be driving back from Ft. Lauderdale that Saturday and will try to stop by. Will have the wife and son with me. Convincing the wife to let me stay a while will be the trick! Would love to see all you guys again! Robert
  7. Identifying the bronze cannon

    Okay, Did I miss something? Is that a pair of shoes over on the right side of the picture? What are these things...maybe a foot long?

  9. My Diy Fluid Bed Gold Trap Sluice

    Ah! Yes! Plans are already underway to add a suction nozzle to have the highbanker/dredge combo! You need a 12 year old to do all the shovelling for you like I did! He loves it! I am also redoing the manifold and adding a 1.5" output for the dredge. Robert
  10. Pumpless Highbanker

    You should use bigger pipe at the intake box and go down in size as you get closer to the highbanker. Depending on the height above the highbanker or what is considered the 'fall', you maybe surprised at how much pressure you can build up with this method. This is how they did hydrolic mining...
  11. My Diy Fluid Bed Gold Trap Sluice

    Not sure I undddddderrrrrstand.......The dirt isn't going to jump in the highbanker!
  12. My Diy Fluid Bed Gold Trap Sluice

    1/8"! Way too big for the size bed and inlet pipe. 16 holes, 3 rows per pipe and 3 pipes! Went up to 1" inlet and 1/16" holes. Robert
  13. My Diy Fluid Bed Gold Trap Sluice

    Thanks. There is a pressure gage and valve on the left side to make sure the pressure is not too high or too low. I try to keep it around 7 psi. Just enough to keep the bed fluid. This was one of the adjustments I made also. I had made the holes in the fluid bed tubes too big and pressure was...
  14. My Diy Fluid Bed Gold Trap Sluice

    Actually the Schmidt patent is a Utility Patent. At the time this one was filed, the terms were also changing, and according to the patent office it would be 17 years from Date of Patent or 20 Years from Patent filing, whichever is longer. The patent was filed in 1994 and would be good through...
  15. what is this

    pvet, Not knowing the surrounding bottom composition, size of the pile or much other input, I would probably say its a ballast pile. But its really hard to make that assumption with nothing else to go on a but a picture. Did you recover a sample? If so, we could possibly say ok, its river...
