Rumors Of Aussie Made GPZ Coils

Recommended Posts

A Minelab dealer down Geelong way put up the below post about an Aussie company starting to make GPZ coils.

Interesting timing, wonder if the Russian guys have forced Minelabs hand to allow a local 3rd party to make coils.

Here is the link to the facebook page https://www.facebook.com/luckystrikegold/

Not looking to start a fight here, just sharing info. I don't care what coils everyone wants to run lol

Brand new GPZ coil coming soon! ?

There is a rumour in the wind that an Australian company will soon be making GPZ 7000 coils.

At present there are only Russian made after market coils being made, so hold off and bag yourself a genuine Aussie made one. They will be cheaper than the Russian coils and, as always, very well made.

No photo description available.

Get'm both, get'm all!  Rumours be damned.  Finds and reports should be considered.

Thanks for posting the image from the FB page.  I would not have seen it because I don't FB.

Will be interesting to see if the coil connection is the same as the x-coil. (chip bypass & gpx plug)

Reading between the lines it looks like its Nuggetfinder releasing the coil.

Well now, that would be interesting.  You see, competition is a good thing.  Even if people do or do not like the Xcoils, it forces Minelab to react.  Everybody wins.

Possibly made by NuggetFinder!  Lets hope these ones are waterproof.

Mine lab will have a competitive response either with their own product or through one of the current coopetition companies (Coiltech, Nugget Finder). MineLab will also take action to protect their IP if needed.

MLs got their finger on the pulse no doubt, X coil & Coiltek SDC coils are probably just an annoyance to them. No massive $s to be made for a big company, but down here at the customer coal face some of us are having a ball. Buh...…... if X coil or whatever coils increases some of our yields, that`s the go for us. Off today for some more Xn………..

I was so busy on the x coil threads I did not notice this one was fully off the rails also. Guys, there is a report button... please use it or send me a PM. I don’t read every post every day anymore so please let me know when the insults start flying.

Anyway my apologies as this one really went south, with one member requesting his account be deleted as a result of action here and elsewhere.

This stops now. I don’t care if you are a five year member with 1000 posts, you better think real hard before hitting that post button. I am just going to ban offenders until this stops.

      COIL SAVERS
      Hey guys, I just got these in, they are a really simple and worthwhile upgrade  
      The “CoilSaver” washers serve to massively reduce coil ear and coil yoke wear by spacing them from each other to prevent them rubbing together  (see photos)
      These also make your coil tighter on the shaft (no floppy coil) and reduce the chance of snapping your coil ears off as the bolt will not need to be overly tensioned.
      They come in a pack of eight with two thicknesses so you can mix and match them depending on the wear of your equipment. (Four washers requires per shaft making two full sets
      Red washer x4 (3mm)
      Black washer x4 (2mm)
      These are currently available at www.detect-Ed.com and we do ship international very affordable but our US dealers will surely have them soon 👍

      I was curious if anyone has any knowledge on this.I have a older model spectrum that came with a 9.5" coil and I found a 6" deep scan coil.What is the depth difference between the two under the same conditions.By the way I am mostly a coin shooter.Thanks in advance for any information.

      I was wondering why I haven't seen this question anywhere. Does a bigger coil use more power?

      I came into possession of a Deltech 8x6 SEF Pro coil for a EDS Winner detector. Would this coil work on a MXT Tracker E-Series detector? I believe the frequency for the EDS Winner is somewhere around 28khz. New to the sport so looking to get educated.  Thanks.

      I was lucky enough to have a guy on here make contact with me offering his Elliptical for sale to me. Right now my money is on the way and by the end of next week it will be in my hands .
       I’m excited to give it a try on two lots almost down town that has lots of history.
       I’ll be posting my finds right here.

      Week 3 started off a little slow.  It rained for 2 days, then a day of sun, then a 3rd day of rain.  You just can't drive the Aussie tracks when they're wet.  The camp held up well in the rain, no significant leaks.  Fortunately, I brought audio books and a Kindle so we kept entertained.  
      All the clouds put our power grid to the test.  We had to use Paul's generator a couple times to top off the battery.  I'm including a photo of our power grid, looks like a soup sandwich. We're running about 200 watts of flexible solar panels into a 100amp hr Li-Ion battery.  With full sun running only the outback refrigerator, our battery stays fully charged.  At night with charging our equipment we drop about 1/4 of battery capacity.   We should have thought more about charging compatibility, as it stands we need 110AC for the laptop and 2way radios, cigarette lighter plugs for lights and USB for phones and GPS.  What a mess trying to keep it all functioning.  I had to rewire our cigarette lighter outlet bank, the wires fried somewhere along the line.  I'm ordering a backup tonight.  
      We took the time to go into town and do laundry and take hot showers at the Caravan Park.  I ran my clothes through twice, I think the Aussie red dirt may be permanent on some of my stuff.  
      We've been out doing real prospecting looking for new patches along the "line of strike".  We've been off the beaten path and as a precaution punch in the GPS coordinates of the truck.  Like Daniel Boone, I've never been lost, though a might bewildered a few times.  Just when I think I'm in unexplored territory, I find and old timer's campsite or dry-blower tailngs where he sampled the same zone.  Our only luck has been a few crumbs off old dry-blower zones.  Modern mechanized prospectors have often run a dozer over the old timer's tailings and scraped things to bedrock.  If there is some of original caprock left, we have a better chance of finding something.  
      Paul has been off on a frolic of his own.  We don't expect to see him for another week, in the meantime Trent sold the caravan Paul was using.  Paul is homeless, I hope he doesn't repo his pop-up trailer that we're using.  Trent is thinking about moving our half of Camp Yank about 60k to the south to detect a new area said to have good gold.  It will be a challenge dividing up the campsite necessities and we'll miss nightly entertainment of Paul's crazy stories.  
      Sunset from Downunder.  That's all for now.
