Couple Of Days 12" Xing

Recommended Posts

Yeah, haven`t lost a pick for a few years, next one will have reflective & fluorescent tape on it, our current grass height being 3ft plus makes it difficult you could near walk over a bare pick and not notice but with the tape. But I`m heading back in a couple of days, and if I force myself to walk in there without my spare pick I`ll find it for sure, course there`s a bigger patch calling me there.

I just had an idea. You know those gps trackers (see pic below), like "Tile pro" and so on? What if you taped it onto the handle of your pick somewhere? Then if you "misplaced" it, you just track back to it. (I think it has a smartphone app that it works with.) Just a thought.

In my "back yard gold field", although I live in the tropics, am inland some 100miles at an altitude of 1800ft or 513metres, todays temp here at The Knob got down to 4.3 C to a max of 24.4 C, much colder down on creek & river flats. MN another unthought of feature of the tropics is we get viscous hail storms that sometimes leave inches of hail on the ground in our summer on hot days when the temps over 45C that`s what around 110F.

I am going soft no...……...

Yes you must be....couldnt handle a wee frost.:rolleyes: You need to take some cement & toughen up.? If you had a half decent detector & coil set up you should have been able to detect your pick. Don't get too soft & show too many photos :laugh: Just taking the piss...but I am sure you realised that.:biggrin:

Gezzzz....I haven't even tried the 12" spiral yet. I just can't take the 10 x 9 off since putting it on. It is doing the business for me.?

Nice finds Vic. Gotta love the X coils. 

Best of luck out there

If he told you Mitchel he would have to kill you.:laugh: Careful Norvic, he's trying to claim jump you.  It is winter downunder & Aussie does get frosts as well. Even in the WA desert.

      I have ordered a new size X-coil, it's a 12x8" X-Coil,  It's already in the post however it's delayed in shipping due to international shipping delays the world over.  Hopefully this coil arrives soon. I am very excited about it as I think it will be the perfect size for NZ.
      It's even in NZ's black and white colours.

      This should be good in our rocky terrain on small gold.

      There has been a lot of  talk lately about gold being found on or off bedrock, I've personally done well finding gold in soil, even my biggest bit to date has been in soil.  JW found this little soil ridge well up above bedrock, it's soil all the way to ground level 50 to 100 feet below along the top of the ridge, as you go down the sides of it the gold disappeared, oddly right at the top of this ridge has been a very productive spot for gold for us both.  We did a number of posts about it at the time last summer when we were going there on the bike ride of death along a little track with a big drop.
      Today I was given a couple of videos of more gold being found and again the gold was in soil so I thought I'd show you the videos.  Gold is where you find it 🙂 Rules don't seem to apply.
      These two videos are the 10" X-coil and filmed yesterday.
      This sort of thing is familiar to me, this is often how I have found gold, just in soil and oddly most of my biggest bits have been found the same way which I've often posted about in the past and they've been in spots hammered by everyone around here, so the likely reason I found them is nobody bothered to detect the soft loamy soil areas instead targeting mostly the bedrock.

      Here is the photo for the total of the day

      I was sent some photos overnight of some incredible finds with the GPX and an X-coil that forum member Elijah found.  I thought I'd put the photos up for people to see as they're pretty incredible, I really love the old coin, imagine the history that goes with an old coin like that, I can't even imagine how old it must be  It must have been a very wealthy person that lost it.  I would love to detect in locations that have ancient coins like this.  It looks like they just take a big nugget and stamp an image on it.

      It looks like a bird of some sort?



      And check out it's weight!!!!

      That coins heavy! I wonder what you could buy with it when it was used as currency.
      He also found this, I'm not sure what it could be, any ideas?  It's likely to be very ancient too.

      X-coils have made an absolute Monster of a coil for the GPZ 7000.    It was only a month or so ago the 26" X-coil was released for the GPX/QED, now a 25" has been made for the GPZ. 
      These coils were designed for Russia as they have a lot of big deep gold as well as old golden relics and coins.
      The new X-coil 25" GPZ coil is bundle wound like traditional Minelab coils and weighs less than the genuine Minelab GPZ 19" Coil at 1800 grams including skid plate.



      I am betting this would find some bigger deeper gold missed in Australia 🙂
