Hey NE what does MN look like

Do you have a current picture of The Triantiwontigong?  There may be some comparisons  ? 

Nice gold Norvic.  A small coil on a Z looks so out of place but also very enticing. 

 

 

Sorry Mitchel, just pulling your chain  ?

The Knob got down to 4.3 C to a max of 24.4 C,

Leave your knob alone. No wonder it got to 24.4 C ?? Hope you didn't get any splinters.

We had a high of 6 C today which is very mild for this time of the year. The ski fields can definitely do with some natural snow.

 Ah ha, NE you may have solved The Triantiwontigong mystery, if the missing picks are returned and placed at the base of The Knob in the next couple of days, matter will go no further. ? The Knob is a small granite knob about 50ft high, Missus & I named our refirement property after, what can one do with our cousins across the ditch, after we learnt em how to play cricket proper, provide them with top gold detectors etc

The Triantiwongigongolope is sort of OZs insect equivalent of USs Sasquatch, was included in a poem by legendary OZ poet CJ Dennis way back.      https://www.poemhunter.com/poem/the-triantiwontigongolope/

Norvic,

I didn't think you got 'weather' up there!  I was told that everyone had left Victoria (including NE's parents) for warmer parts north in trailers by the drove and would be gone for months.  (Those are the real claim jumpers.)

My second great surprise is that some Aussies would honor a poem with the long name of Triantiwontigongolope (not Triantiwongigongolope or Triantiwontigong) when it is impossible for most of the country to spell a contraction (they are -- they're) and instead just say and write there.   Your Kiwi cousins do much the same. (Your on your way now!)  haha  ?

I think I found your pick but just like the Triantiwontigongolope I resemble you may never see me return it to you.

Finally, I must admonish you guys about waking a sleeping Triantiwontigongolope as you don't know what you will get.

Mitchel

Your quiet write Mitchel. There currently in Clermont accordion to the latest police reports.  

JP had best be on the look out, he might loose some stock out of the shop.

I’ve stopped stocking them, first of all the orders would mostly get misplaced in transit and then the ones that did arrive would vanish off the shelves before I could provide them with owners reflective tape or otherwise?. I’m pretty certain they’ve been getting inside help from missing pens, hair combs and odd socks!!!?

Judging by our beach caravan parks up here in North QLD during winter, I suspect NE & Reg are the last winter inhabitants of Victoria. The others have brought the cold up here with them but not the rain, tis sunny and clear.

I think I owe you an apology MN, might be those Victorian Drop Bears that are the culprits, seems you are quiet write NE, JPs verified  they`ve hit Clermont too. Could be simply a cunning ploy, take our picks off us locals that stops us digging that lovely yellow stuff, more for them. Don`t know about Doohickies JP, but it might pay to stock up on Drop Bear repellant, tropical Aeroguard just has no effect.?

      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 🙂
