  1. Added A 500 GPH Bilge Pump To My Le' Trap Battery Operated Setup.

    I added one more bilge pump to my Le'Trap setup. It was previously running on just a Johnson 2200 GPH/7.5 Ah, which was enough to get the unit catching the gold. I added a 500 GPH/1.8Ah to increase the flow. What I gained was excellent exchange in all the riffles and the ability to run more feed...
  2. Ordered A 14” x 11” DD Reaper Searchcoil For The APEX And Tried It Out....."WOW"

    I am a great fan of the AT Series for general hunting needs in my local. I have always enjoyed it's sensitivity and ID/audio abilities. Someone suggested I try the Reaper coil on the APEX for similar results. Well, after about an hours worth of playing with the controls, changing frequencies...
  3. Got Out With The Le'Trap Today - Fossils and Gold!

    Finally got out with the Le'Trap today. Put in just under 4 hours. Picked up a plastic wagon at a garage sale a while back. Can handle up to 150 lbs. Ends up being a nice vehicle to haul my equipment around. And it's light too. Amongst my digs, I got a nice piece of dino bone and a fossil of...
  4. I Sure Am Enjoying The California Mini Sluice! Check It Out.......

    For such a small, light machine, it really bit the flower gold, even the tiniest of the tiniest. Heck, the whole unit fits inside a 5 gallon bucket disassembled, less the battery. I made a 3 minute video of it in action. .

  11. Purchased The California Mini Sluice Highbanker And Happy With It's Results

    Here's my first run with the California Mini Highbanker. I ran 2 x 5 gallon buckets 3/4 full of 10 mesh screened river gravel. Looks like those drop riffles hang on to the tiniest bits of flour gold. I am quite happy with this unit. It needs slow water flow. I ran it at around 3/4 flow on the...
  12. Finally, The River Dropped Enough To Get Some Gold

    I finally got access to the North Saskatchewan River this afternoon, as the river level was dropping this afternoon. I managed to dig some gravel out out the river's edge, while also washing roots. I was amazed at how much gold was in those roots. I would guess that about 25% of my gold was...
  13. I Went Back To My Roots To Get Gold (pun intended)

    My usual gold bearing river is still flooded, so I went back to my spot I hit recently for gold. I used my Mini Le'Trap and California mini sluice, and also metal detected the area. Here's a short video on today's adventure.
  14. There Was More Gold In The Grass Roots Then In The Gravel

    Due to a late snow melt in the mountains and above average rain in Edmonton, my favorite spots on a local river are still under 3-4 feet of water. I went to another another nearby river not affected with mountainous spring runoff, did some sampling, only to find 3-4 specs of gold per pan...

  16. Got Ring #3 Yesterday And Ring #4 Today Plus A Silver Coin

    Spent most of the day water detecting with my AT MAX. I dug up a good variety of targets. Lots of fishing stuff, vapes, coins, jewelry, junk and a gold (not) ring today. Below are the "BEST" of the day.
  17. Got My Second Ring Today With The AT Pro

    Out for about 4 hours this afternoon. Here's the finds!
  18. Got More Coins Today And A Ring!

    Out digging for coins today with the AT Pro, as the river is too high and too dangerous for prospecting. I thought I had a gold ring, but there is no stamp.
  19. Here's Last Weeks Gold Highbanking. The River Rose 8 Feet today

    Here is last weeks gold. The river just rose 6 feet today due to rain and snow pack melt in the mountains. Going to remain high, so I will be doing a lot of metal detecting.
  20. Out With The AT Pro Coin Shooting. Ordered A New Coil For the APEX

    Headed out this afternoon for a few hours to the river and park. Got some $$$ to go towards my annual gold coin. The Reaper coil is supposed to be real hot on Canadian coins according to a buddy who repairs metal detectors. So, I ordered one and it will be my go to land machine this summer...
