Awesome JW, you're crushing it! Not even a broken pick can slow you down now; you've become one with the Zed. WTG!

Can't imagine how many more you may have found if you hadn't broke your pick! Who was it that said " The harder you work, the luckier you get"

Love the pics and it looks like you are really cleaning up! I bet you will be finding a few more nuggets in that area before you are done. I'm jealous, well below freezing here and looking forward to those summer days again...

 Hi there Jen, Thank you & great to see you on here. This is a great site (just like another site I know.:smile:) Seeing this is your first post I will also be the first to give you your first "LIKE." & to welcome you aboard. Cheers Jen (big sis)

Thanks too ID desertman. I am sure that area hasnt seen the last of me yet. May even be today.....Stay warm....Cheers

Thanks DolanDave....

Squizz...Cheers mate. Looks & sounds like there is a lot of rain around. Both in Aussie & the States. That has its good & bad points. Bad...that you cant getarrow-10x10.png out, especially for a detect. But if it brings some pretty big floods then it should stir the gold up & deposit, re-deposit & replenish areas.

Good luck out there

JW :smile:

Well done JW, some fantastic bits of gold there. Have you ever tried panning the dirt you are digging out of the schist crevices to see if there's small gold in there with the nuggets?

      Got out Friday, and decided to use the good ol Boat Anchor 19 " coil on the ZED. After finding the Specimen Gold, and into it 2 hours, my Bungee broke, and I had to go to my backup bungee, and also switched back to the 14". I was using the High Yield Mode with the 19" coil, since the soils here are not to bad, and I seem to get a little more depth using the 19" with High Yield.

      I got out to Tarnagulla today for a detect and I got 2 little specimens and then I finished off the day with this beauty. I was using the 7000 with JP`s recommended conservitive settings and this sounded like a very deep target.  I was surprised when I moved it about 5" down.  What really excited me about this one was I did some testing and the 2300 can get it at about 8" and the 7000 can only get it at 6". That in itself told me there was a fair bit of gold in it. I suspect a 5000 would struggle to hear it.  This speci is predominately quartz but it has a thin layer of ironstone around it.  In the first 2 photos are the only two pieces that are readily visible but under high magnification there are at least 100 pinpoints of gold visible all around it.   I have no idea how much the ironstone mucks up the SG, but the sg for quartz says there is 28.649 grams of gold in this piece.   I`m not going to drop this one in acid till my mate waves his 5000 over it. I`m hoping there is going to be a heap of gold visible once the ironstone is gone.  cheers Dave

      So some of you may have seen my piece I put in the thread about 'What are your detecting goals' as I was happy I had reached the goal of getting a nugget over 1 gram (it's sad but you have to start somewhere ).
      Well 24 hours later and I've got another. 
      11 grams is the big one. 6 is the littler one. And 3 smallies which have been my standard fare.  
      Its been a beautiful weekend here in Northeast Victoria for Easter. These beauties have topped it off. 
      Happy Easter everyone.

      This is a specimen I got last week with the 7000 and 14" coil at about 5-6" and it readily sticks to a magnet. The total weight of this piece is 0.85 gram so there is not a hell of a lot of gold in it, and I figured the 19" coil would struggle to hear it, but with JP`s deep gold settings, the 19 can hear it about 4" away .  It should look good when it`s been acid cleaned.

      Hi all, just thought I would share my find for my first day detecting of 2017, nothing big, but it's a start  Cheers Dave.

      Today I went to an area that I recently gained access to.  I looked at imagery to see where the old workings are.  I picked a spot where a drag line and wash plant had been though.  As I was driving in I noticed a lot of the ground had all of the rocks racked off.  I figured who ever did it had to have found something.  So the tailings will have to wait.
      I decided to run the SDC 2300 over that ground.  After digging the 10th piece of shot I got another signal about a foot away from one I just dug.  It was real hard to pinpoint and find but the sun hit it right on the coil and I knew it was a little piece.  Finally I found a nugget in New Mexico.  Nothing like others recently on the forum but I was pretty jazzed.  My first desert piece.
