Post some known details / suggestions or simply e-mail them to me so I can get all input rounded up for a WTHO Contact List update.

Detectors? Some might have a newer model they are comfortable with, VLF or a PI type. The two biggest nuggets I detected in California on a three-club outing were 5 dwt and 8 dwt. That was back in '88 and I was using a 13.77 kHz Compass Gold Scanner and got them at about 3" and 7" as a close guess.

Yes, Rye Patch has attracted searchers for decades and many newer detectors work at a higher-than-normal Frequency as with an Equinox 800 or the functional Garrett update of the White's 24K. If I were there today I would grab my 19 kHz Nokta Relic or 19 kHz Fisher F-19 Ltd. to chase those tiny nuggets. If I have the $$ I would buy a 24K, unless I had more $$$ and the Garrett Axiom was available.

Just one more way to have some fun, like trying to find an elusive old coin or trade token in an iron-cluttered ghost town.
