    A Few For The Zed, GB2 & GM1000

    Great story & photo's there JW, Man some of that gold is so small. You certainly had all the gold bases covered with your arsenal of detectors. Look forward to seeing some of your drone footage when you got your sh.t together. Lol ! Cheers Ashley

    My New Detecting Vehicle

    Nice prospecting rig there Steve, Only problem is you might just walk past it tucked behind a bush . Was it from the military vehicle auctions they had recently ? Cheers Ashley

    Ah ! .......... The Plot thickens ! Cheers Ashley
  10. Thanks beatup & Steve. Kiwijw : The apprentice bit was the first thing that popped in my mind after looking through the " Reg Wilson Collection post" and then i posted up this post. But i still consider myself an apprentice as i am always learning, learning, learning. mn90403, Thanks, "Those that have mastered", I wouldn't like to hazard a guess on their gold take and most would never divulge it, But "Those that have Mastered" to me means mastered their detector, Mastered reading the ground and their environment and the gold will come. Cheers Ashley
  11. Thank you Lunk, Dolan Dave, vanursepaul, bluthermal. Rockett : Used & tried a lot of settings as it was my first opportunity to try out the new Minelab update for the Zed, Factory settings work well but always try & see if you can get the Zed to run in Normal on the ground you are on. Jrbeatty : Yes was lot's of digging but i was lucky enough to find most of the gold in patches with only a small amount of rubbish targets, One patch of 31 small nuggies had 11 shotty pellets pretty much smack in the middle of the patch and no other rubbish anywhere. The 62 patch was only gold targets, did end up finding a boot tack about 20m away from the patch Cheers Ashley
  12. My Apprentership Tally for the 2017 Season in Western Australia, 715 pieces of gold, Biggest nugget was 10.87grams, smallest was 0.09grams. Biggest patch was 62 nuggies in an area not much bigger than my 14ft caravan. All found with the mighty Zed. Gold is sectioned in the photo as explained : Top section and the small pile at the 9 o’clock position was from my trip early in the season ( roughly 3 months ) for 458 pieces. Small pile at the 8 o’clock position and remainder of the gold on the right lower section was from the latter trip of just over a month golding for 257 pieces. 9 o’clock & 8 o’clock piles was the 62 patch found on my last day of the early trip and clean up on the first day of the latter trip ( best patch bit was a 6 grammer with a total patch weight of 37.56 grams ) Total weight comes in at 11ounces ( possibly a tad more when I crush the speccies ) Cheers Ashley

    I have the same type as Cabin Fever has ( Little bit longer legs ) from my Sovereign GT days, From memory i got them from someone in the USA. Just tried it on the Monster and it works a treat. Cheers Ashley
