Picture on same page.

I would pay money to watch the enforcement of this picture.

So no more Divining?
Every single Dowser swears that they aren't moving the apparatus.
So clearly this makes for a powered piece of equipment.

Pinned the topic so it does not disappear.  Thanks for posting it Gemster  beers

Some of the pictures in it are more for aimed at mining. A bit sloppy in places.  They forgot a picture of a suction dredge nozzle.

So when I hit my 100 grams of gemstones in a day can I just stash the rest and come back the next day? 

It's a common problem I have!  ;D

If I stub my toe on a 1 kg gold nugget that's poking out of the ground, do I chip 50 gms off it and cover the rest up until the next day?

Asking for a friend.
