White’s Electronics,

It has been a very long time since we have communicated and since I came to Sweet Home to do a little advertising. As a result of our acquaintance and the many stories I wrote to Gold & Treasure Hunter, the more recently G.P.A.A., I have extolled the blessed virtues of White’s gold hunting machines. I started out with a Goldmaster, and found many nuggets with it. Then in 1994 Melissa told me you were sending me a V-sat. that beautiful machine has nearly made me a legend around our winter home in Arizona. (Of course our little desert town has only a handful of residents.)

Then a couple winters ago my great old V-sat sniffed out an unbelievable piece of gold and embedded in quartz (2 ounces of gold) in an area not readily known for gold nuggets. Anyway, the story and pictures were published in the Nov./Dec. issue of G.P.A.A. Gold Prospectors. My specimen is also on the cover. Now here goes: Since I first fit a White’s gold machine in my hand I have never even considered another.

My friends use Fisher and Mine Lab, but nothing compares with my V-sat. Even I can’t believe how much gold I have uncovered with it, plus other treasures, because when I put on discriminate I find old gold camp coins. I still have almost all of my gold, although I’ve given quite a few of the larger nuggets away to loved ones on gold chains…. ‘course that’s when it was $300 and ounce. Now I am over 65 years old and have never slowed down, I’m finding gold where there shouldn’t be any, I parked my 40wd in the morning somewhere in the Arizona desert and with my V-sat, backpack and gun take off for some distant mountain. I nearly always go alone, it’s easier that way.

These are the greatest of times and my White’s detectors have helped build memories of magical places, or at times, snotty rattlesnakes. Every trip is a great adventure because I know my V-sat will find something rare and wonderful. Now, I could never part with my 1994 model.

Best regards,

Connie
