Good picking I'd say!  It helps to ignore a lot of stuff.

phrunt,

Just received the 6 inch coil for my new Eq. 800 and am anxious to try it out.  Here in Eastern Oregon the temperatures are finally dropping below 100 and we can get out more often.  Your little nugget proves the Equinox will work and I hope for us too!

Thanks for the replies 

Mitchel, it does that indeed!!

Goldrat, This guy came in at a #2 also just like most the birdshot and small lead I was digging.  Found it in someone's dig pile.

Phrunt, hope your right

Gary, I'm using the 6" it works for sure you should like it

I've got lots of time in on a GMT and I still love that macine but the 800 has got my enthusiasm up

Thanks all

Have to correct the record here.  That nuggie came in at a .1 not .01

As my daughter puts it........ I was confuzzled 🤪

Nugglorius,

Got two with my 800 yesterday using the 6 inch coil-so thanks.  The Equinox does not handle the hot rocks at all and maybe because I don't know what to do yet.  And it isn't as user friendly as the Gold Bug 2.  Very sensitive to gold at depth though.

Well done on finding the small gold nugget,although nuggets are nearly non existent here in the UK,but my 6'' coil is basically staying on the Equinox all the time.I rarely use the stock coil at all,only 2 coils that i basically use are the 6'' and the 15'' but only then on pasture sites.

      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.

      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.

      So got back out to my one nugget producing spot here in VA, this past Saturday.  Four of us in total went I was swinging the GPX4800 with the 15x12 commander mono coil, my buddy was swinging my equinox 800 with stock coil, and my two other friends (the ones who originially found this place), were swing the GPX5000 with a 11 commander DD coil.  
      In total i got 4 nice nuggets for the day, the GPX5000 got 2 and the equinox 800 unfortunately got skunked.  Biggest nugget was 2.3 grams, smallest was 6 grains.  I also got a steel ball that came from a civil war case shot shell.  
      All three detectors ready to go for the next days planned adventure.  

      Fording the high creek water to get to the detecting area.

      All the trash dug in the search for gold.  100+ pieces.  

       
      I got some good video footage so i should have a video up in the next few days.
