‘nailed’ a solid little 12-gram slug ...

I hate it when those little ones get in the way!

Very nice video JP.  When does it get 'nice' in your area for prospectors to get some training?

Thanks for posting JP, it takes a lot of time to do vids. Great to see you have taken the time out mate.

Great instructional video. Thanks JP. I am impressed with my 19 coil and its depth capability but have yet to come to grips with the best settings for certain locations. I need to put the 19 on the stick and leave it on for a while...now the grass has been chewed down to a workable level in the places I detect. RDD

Haven't watched it yet due to limited and expensive service out here but looking forward to it.

Me having a thick head, sometimes things need to be watched a bunch of time before they sink in. So can it be downloaded for watching at your leisure or can you only watch it on line?

Hi MadTuna :biggrin:

if using Firefox there is a download video plugin that you can install to allow you to download. The video is on the main Minelab YouTube channel as well as you'll need to view it in a main Youtube page (not embedded in a web page like the forum) for the download option to display once installed in Firefox.

Thankyou Miss Jennifer.

Unfortunately I don't have Firefox. I'm not sure we have that over here, I have Telstra which is about the only one that works out where I am. (remote WA)

Cheers!

Firefox works ok with Telstra just gotta watch your usage as you know Telstra's always got a hand out, or in your pocket.  Open up a Yahoo mail account and download it from there next time your in town however I reckon you have good band width if you can see a video out bush madtuna :)

Another great contribution JP and Steve.  Got a bit of a kick in the last part of that vid watching JP dig like a honey badger and hearing the pitch of the detector shoot off like an angry humming bird. Hahh :)

Definitely pick on the clue advice he is giving about the super fine tuning of the gb by pumping the coil, by making the user button in manual.  He threw out this tidbit of information when the 7000 first came out. But it is the most important part of this video IMHO.

Good point Scott. I too have made the user button option to be able to switch to Manual tuning. It is a great way of making sure not to tune out a signal as you pinpoint and not throw out the GB while digging a target.

      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.

      Does Minelab limit transferring the warranty to several new owners, or can you just transfer the warranty once?? Talking about the 7000. 
        Also hearing from multiple sources Minelab doesn't really do repairs, they just mail new devices back to you if there is something wrong. ????

      Well I did it..... recent success in Gold Basin with my 5000 and Evo (some documented on here, some not) has allowed me to scrape together the pennies to buy my ultimate "significant other". 
      I'm now the proud owner of a ZED with 19" coil and to help save my back, I picked up an over the shoulder boulder holder Mac Daddy coil suspension rigging. Some of you may recall my looking at it at the Minelab conference here in Lost Wages (Las Vegas). I've tried it on, it's incredible, hopefully it doesn't sound off too much with all the aluminum, lord knows I've already dug enough aluminum cans with the Evo, I'll let you all know how it goes.
      Sooooo prepare for some dumb blond questions as I go forward with Zeddie.

      Do these GPZ19's normally false at the slightest tap of a rock? I'm not sure why they put a scuff plate on it, you cant scuff with this and it gets VERY tiring having to run it 6" off the deck, seems if this is normal your giving up depth... this is 100x worse than the piece of junk Goldstalker falsing one I had. All settings the same, with the GPZ14 on no falsing at all, nice and quite... 19 all but useless... is it so hot of a coil that you need to babysit and carry it above all rocks? If that's the case it's going in the classified section, perhaps it's defective...
      thx

      Still love my 5000 but it's sadly neglected as of late., the 7000 is just a beast!
      Walked onto another little run in a wash today in a totally new area. Scored 19 grams in nuggets plus two specimens. *
      Just belted the species and got 1.4 out of the little one and 4.6 out of the bigger one plus probably about another 3 or so grams in fines to be panned off.
