I like the character of your gold more so than a lot of gold I have seen from Oz. Very nice lumps and I hope you find many more. ?

Coplaner concentric, that’s interesting. Just to be sure we are on the same page, do you mean a coil like the White’s Dual Field for the TDI where there are basically two coils, an smaller inner and a larger outer?

You make me jealous JR, I can't imagine the fun you're having detecting boulders that size.  I need a holiday house in your neck of the woods.

  I knew it I knew it I knew it! and the photos prove it! Australia is all flat ground covered in manicured grass with puffy white clouds above and gentle  cool breezes and just enough trees for taking a brief nap in the shade.  Australian gold should only be worth half of the same weight in Sierra Nevada gold.

 Mr. JRBeatty is right on when he advises to hang on to your GPXs. The GPZ is a good addition to the GPX series but not a replacement.

I can't believe the giant Detech concentric coil is only 1300 grams, about the same as my 12x15 Commander coil.. nuts!

      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.
