Just got to Kalgoorlie today, few things to do, like shopping/supplies etc, get vehicle serviced, etc etc, then we will get some detecting.

And yes, I am looking forward to giving all the range of coils a good go.

You guys really earn your gold over there. I will never complain again about having to scramble over a few hillsides with rocks after seeing where you work. I can also see the x-coil is very good and that's exciting but there has to be a smart operator at the other end of the detector to put the coil in the right place.

This so true.  it's not the tools but the operator.

That was indeed a good day.  Some days I struggle mentally, I go thinking I'm not going to find anything, other days it's different and strangely the days I go all typed up thinking I'm going to find something I do.  It's happened a few times now.

The crazy green hot rocks at this spot seem to be a sign gold is nearby.  I've only been to one other place with a number of them and it's my favourite sluicing creek which also obviously has gold.  These green hot rocks and gold appear to live near each other.  If I ever see green rocks anywhere I know it's worthy of a nosy with my detectors.   I'm trying to take Reg's advice and learn the land and tie things all together.  Long way to go but a start ?

JW and his double digit nugget scores, it's become very regular lately. Sometimes I feel like I'm driving a VW beatle and JW's driving a Ferrari though but I'm sure a lot of it is down to operator skill levels. :biggrin:

I've been to that spot 3 times now, and found 3 nuggets there, although all on one day.  I prefer to average it out to one nugget a day ?

      Hi guys. Been really sick, still am kind of, recovered about 50%. But came back and saw some notifications. Two can't find. But, I reckon before I got sick I shot off at a member here and may have got it wrong. So, you know who you are and no hard feelings mate, my bad this time. To the Boss, Steve, same, my bad. Still not right though, real bad virus. Haven't felt like this in over 20 yrs. Got fed up of laying around coughing, sweating, nausea so got out. Felt great, kind of, short sessions though and glad to get home. But small wins regardless. 1st pic at the head of a deep lead in the very very last throw outs going up a mountainside. 2nd total virgin ground, very scattered, no rhyme or reason, been there before and it's like "toss a coin" direction you go.

      Found this little guy on my second hunt with the nox.  Just barely registers at .01g on the scale.  It rang clear at 2 inches deep.  I'm hunting in trashy hydraulic pits that have been hit hard with PI's and  VLF's but I think I'm the first equinox user.  I never thought I could remain sane hunting these areas but this machine changes everything.  Only iron I dug was the old burro shoe.......pretty cool!!
      Im in gold 2, sensitivity 18-20 the rest all stock settings.
      Thanks

      Dealing with some family issues me, my wife and a group of friends finally made a trip to the central Colorado mountain’s to search for gold specimens on tailing piles that have been productive in the past. Part of the group this was their first time using a detector searching for gold specimens. After a brief overview of the history and different areas to search, we spent some time setting up the different types of detectors to achieve the best results. We then took off in different directions with some partnering up with others for additional instruction. It didn’t take long for the 10,000+ foot altitude to begin taking its toll and the steep terrain limiting the area they wish to search as everyone was cautious for their well-being while detecting. The group detected for three days and four specimens were found.

      Here are a few pics showing the wire and leaf gold specimens as found and then cleaned:

      With yesterday being fathers day I went down to my claim with my dad. Targeted the same spot as last time where I got 3.2g in an hour. This time we spent almost 4hrs and did a huge amount of digging but only managed to find 1.2g. Including a little specimen, which is a bit more rare for that area.Such is life, golden day out with dad though.
