Stop You're Whinging And Dig, We Have It Easy. :o)

Recommended Posts


yep, I well remember 2 hours digging through calcrete with two of us taking turns on the chisel and lump hammer.

Almost went through a box of bandaids with claret leaking from every finger.

The good thing with a signal in calcrete is you know it's gold. The lottery is how big

That's when I go back and get one if my Milwaukee battery powered rota hammers! I guess I got it even easier, now only if I had the time to swing.

 This detecting business is a lot of work. I can remember one time last year that the ground was so hard that I had to put a smaller bucket on the excavator.

You should have just put a bucket on Paul's back end...

Not necessary. Just convince him the target is a nugget (of any size) and an excavator would just get in the way.

      Anyone have any insight on this new machine from Nokta? Saw it advertised on a internet discount detector sales site (guess.....yep that's the one), kind of looks like a "futuristic GB2". Man this company never sleeps.

      Here's a video I shot at a friends farm permission in mid Feb 2016 using my Minelab X-Terra 705 metal detector. The day wasn't the best to start with, the minelab x-terra 705 was finding lots of trashy junk items in the field, I detected for over 2 hours with the minelab and nothing but trash was found, but typically just as I was starting to get sick of the trash and thinking of calling it a day, I started heading back to the car when coin after coin started popping out, finding 6 coins in literally the last 30 mins of detecting on the walk back to the car, it saved the day which would have otherwise been wrote off. Goes to show not to stop detecting until you're packing up as you never know what you might swing across.
