    In the IT world, we call that Whitelisting. If you have an Android Phone, you can turn on Do Not Disturb, then go to Allow Exceptions, Contacts Only.

    Started looking a panning too Hey, haven't been panning in a while since I was a member of the Weekend Gold Miners in upper GA many years ago. I've been in SC for about 6 months now. I did a little research and it seems that any chance of gold will be along the slate belt that runs from...

    Hey ajmets, I'm not sure if I ever replied to you, I don't remember getting a notification of your post... Anyway, I did almost no hunting last year, but I'd like to change that in 2017. Let me know if you'd still like to hook up to do Forest Park or any other spots come Spring time. Thanks, Jack
  6. Greenwich, Ct stops digging in park for $50,000 in gold in 1921

    Found a large metalic object near the water that seems to be a piece from some earth moving equipment. There was a larger target that I just dug near the edge of the signal, but it appears to be like metal garden type fencing, about 3 feet square. It didn't seem rusty, so assumed it was buried...

    This reminds me of all the times I've read about a carved stone being removed from a site and then they find out years later that it was a treasure marker. Then nobody can remember exactly where the stone was before it was moved.

    Metal detecting snow, hhhmmm, now why didn't I think of that. Oh, I know why, never mind. :-)
