  1. Another great day at the beach, with a personal best in the number of silver coins in one day!

    I went back to the same beach as the one I posted about last week, and I was not disappointed! I arrived just after the peak of high tide, so I didn't have time to wait for low tide and hunt the areas where I previously found the silver jewelry and coins. However, there was an area of beach...
  2. A Simpleton Offers His Services

    You continue to make this claim but have presented no evidence that the Silver Chief ever produced a single ounce of silver. You have often quoted the 1883 Congressional report from the director of the U.S. mint but you neglect to mention that at that point in time the Silver Chief had not...

  4. Why don't I ever find any silver dimes?

    Hey 7up, don't lose faith. Those dimes are out there - maybe not a lot of them, but they're out there. If you're finding wheat pennies then you're in a location that has a chance at silver dimes. Although, 1950's sites are on the borderline of being silver-producing. (Meaning that there...
  5. A gold/silver necklace, an old fire hose coupling a dollar coin and a bucket lister

    It has been getting warmer so I headed out. It was 30 when I got to the campus 12 miles east where it is warmer, the sun was warm and at the end of the hunt it was 54 and I was shedding layers. The ground conditions were strange. Some good digging next to small rock hard patches of ground so...

  7. 2 silvers, a GF ring, flat buttons and a pile of pennies

    Hey GoDeep, here are some pictures of the field. The first one is taken from where you enter the field; all that wide open grass has been modified to make those sports fields. In the first picture all the silver coins have been coming from the far side of the field of view. The second picture...

  12. Arsenopyrite or oxidized silver specimen

    Hey there, I hammered this piece of quartz of a 2ft wide vein cutting through schist host rock. I was prospecting in a gold producing area near shear zones.

    Gidday Lilorphanannie Once again thanks for the very interesting story. From what I can determine many of earlier mines was incorporated into one mining complex so many of earlier mines go absorbed into one mining operation. A former small underground Ag-Au-Pb-Zn-Cu-Hg mine located in the...
