Late Afternoon Early Evening Detect

13 posts in this topic

Hi there orgone500, Thanks for dropping in & for your kind words. I have in other places where I have hit many multiple gold targets in a single hole dig with the detector. The end result was more gold weight in the panned gold than the detected gold. That has happened on quite a few occasions. Check out these pics

This was the start of it


The first piece


Going on down & more signals coming to light


2nd piece


At the end of the first days detected gold out of the hole


Covered the hole up with some flat slabs of schist at the end of the day. Was going to ba a week before we could get back


But back we did go. Took the Falcon MD 20 & there were signals all through the dug out dirt





Mrs JW even had a go at detecting a few bits



She scored the bigger bits detecting & the Falcon scored the others & some of the 2nd days panned gold as well


Time to load up the back pack with the digging dirt & cart to the nearest water hole which was not close

Mrs JW loading the pan ready for washing



This was typical of every pan



End of 2nd days panning


Had to cover the hole up again & return later



JW :)

Wow! That's some tasty corn flakes right there. from what I've read online the falcon MD20 would be the perfect tool for double checking for smaller gold in the crevices. Well done again and thank you for Sharing your photos.

      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.
