Hi steve and other members.

I just joined this forum and would like to introduce myself.

My name is Dale I live and prospect in Australia.

I have been prospecting for 16 years and have been a full time prospector for the last 6 years.

I also love treasure hunting and go to europe every second year to look for ancient coins and treasure, and also enjoy searching for treasure in Australia although there are no pre euopean settlement metallic artifacts.

I look forward to sharing my experience's with the members of this forum.

Best regards

Gold Hound

Dale,

 

Nice to see your post.  It is early in the morning here so a bit later when the sun is nearer to up you will get more response.

 

I'd like to hear more about England but of course about being a full time prospector for over 6 years.

 

Are you using the Zed now?

Hi Mitchel

I have not been to england but have looked in various other country's in europe

I have found well over 1000 ancient hammered coins and alot of ancient jewelry letter seal's and other stuff.

I love the thrill I get when I dig up somthing old, my three favorite pieces that i have found are an Aleksander the great Hercules lion head coin about 2600 yers old, a late Byzantine silver bracelet about 700 years old and a gold lion earring that is about 2600 also from Aleksander the great era.

My wife and I both own zeds now but are yet to swing them as I am currently injured.

Dale,

 

Nice relic finds.  What is your 'go to' relic machine?

 

Far North Queensland ... I've watched every minute but it took me several sits!  

 

You are expanding the 'known' gold zones in Australia for us.

 

Thanks.

      Just registered but have been browsing these forums for quite a while and it has helped me a lot. Only started detecting a year ago with a Garrett Euroace and I've really enjoyed my new hobby. Just recently decided to upgrade and I've ordered an Equinox 800. I'm looking forward to it arriving and then putting into practice what I've learned here. Many thanks for all the helpful information that you've all took the time to post.

      Hi all,
      I'm Ray in California. Just got interested in doing prospecting for recreation and enjoying the great outdoors.
      Not expecting to get rich, just thought it would be really cool for my wife and i to find some gold nuggets while
      we are camping anywhere near possible gold country. Looks like i found the right place with like minded folks
      that know a lot more than i do about it. I bought a starter pan kit and practiced a little on our last trip to Sequoia.
      Still have to master that, but i started thinking my chances would be better using a detector to narrow my digging areas.
      Happy Hunting!

      My first post after reading this fine forum's Nox thread a while.I've been an FBS user for over a decade with an Explorer II and a CTX,but at 68 I had to find a lighter unit for my shoulders sake.Got my 600 on Sat.,charged it and paired up my new avantree wireless and Sun. I went out to NYC park that has been a silver mine.I have found 569 silver coins here and my buds hundreds more since we have stumbled on to this park in 2009 however the silver has been drying up and my last 5 hunts have been skunks.I kept 600 settings in default park 1,only changing to 50 tone.My initial impression is it's a pleasure to swing such a light machine and i  could go all day with no pain.It is really fast  and being familiar with how numbers can bounce on Minelabs,I was able to call every coin before I dug it as a penny,dime,quarter.No deepies that I had missed before but I took it to the trashiest sites there( and NYC parks are the worst),I spot that I have pounded even with my 6" CTX coil,I managed to pop out a 47 Rosie(this a very eroded spot) at 1" and 08 Barber dime at 4"So far so good with the Nox.I will try other pounded parks in future hunts and see how it does but for $600 this thing seems like a real bargain.HH
