We are excited to announce that we will be hosting our first EVER Miners Depot Nugget Hunt. We are going to literally bury hundreds of nuggets worth THOUSANDS of dollars for your detecting pleasure. The nuggets will vary in size and some will be as large as a quarter ounce or maybe more.
There will be more activities such as product demonstrations, classes and more to be announced soon. We will even be giving away a Minelab Gold Monster 1000 to one lucky participant.
Here are the details so far:
Saturday, January 27, 2018 from 10AM to about 4PM
Location will be announced in the next couple of days but will be in Quartzsite, AZ and will be easy access.
The cost will be $100 per participant. We will provide a pizza lunch, water and soda. Spots will be limited, so we encourage you to register early.
We will begin taking registrations on December 1st.
The hunt field will be divided evenly into approximately 20x20 sections. Once first heat begins, each hunter will be allowed to hunt for a full hour in his or her section. Sections are determined at random and all sections will contain the same number of nuggets.
At the end of that hour, all hunters must exit the field for a mandatory break. At this time, each hunter will be asked to report how many pieces of gold they have recovered to know what is still left in the field. This info will be shared with the whole group prior to the restart.
During the break, we will also hold a raffle for a Minelab Gold Monster 1000 Metal Detector. All participants get one ticket and there will be no tickets sold.
Once the break is over, registrants will line up around the entire perimeter of the hunt field and we will signal the start of the last heat. All hunters may hunt the entire field for as long as they wish. After 1 hour (3:30PM), the hunt field will be open to the public.
