Bill, Glad you are having a little success at Rye Patch with the GPX-5000 you purchased from me.  Those are pretty nice pieces as 99% of the bigger gold has been found.  

The new Promotion of a free 19" coil with purchase of GPZ-7000 is a great time to call me again. 

I'm down here now with Chet, DiggerBob,  Slowpoke,  Dave,  Matt and Rusty.

Chet let me run the X coils today and I see pros/cons.  We compared 5 targets today and my stock 7000 easily heard each signal.   4 of the 5 were gold nuggets. 

Again,  glad you had some 5000 success and thanks for kind words and sharing the story with photo.

I went to Rye Patch, NV last week and only had 9 hours of detecting with the GPX 5000. Got serious and followed some guidance from forum members and found 3 chevron nuggets (.6 gm, .3 gm and .3 gm) found 4" - 6" deep in heavily detected ground. Many thanks go out to Gerry with a great deal on the Minelab GPX 5000 and Rob's NF Evo 17 x 13 coil paired with the SteelPhase enhancer. Settings were: Gain 18 - 20, Deep, Sensitive Extra or Fine Gold, and a quiet Threshold so I could concentrate. Signals were obvious and clear, without the constant mineral & salt noise.  I also have a GPZ 7000, but trusted the reliable GPX for this short trip.:biggrin:

"Fine gold" in rye patch?  I always thought is was super quiet ground there  ? 

Nice job on the nuggets!

Nope, ground has the ability to drive you Nuts in the winter.

      Due to the high danger in entering the house with grains of sand and rusty materials when my woman is there, I keep my buttocks safe leaving any find that is not gold outside in the garden, inside a basket ...
      I do not remember how many hunts ago I left this pendant and other coins in the basket, perhaps distracted by the rings, much heavier ... Also it is rare to see pendants with red paint ... It seemed like costume jewelry. Anyway with my daughter yesterday afternoon, we rummaged in the basket and I showed her how many coins that I discard can return as new with a bit of hard work .. She immediately noticed and took the little heart and asked me if she could keep it ...
      I was surprised by the color, which I neglected to check well and with a lens I searched for the title engraving ..
      With great surprise this 2.3g pendant is 18K and at the current price it is a find of respect!
      I explained to my daughter that she will have a prize for this discovery, because I don't want her to wear gold at the age of 6 ...
      I was about to throw a good part of everything I collect and leave only coins to clean up and she saved something that I had not even noticed that I had recovered ...
      For the record, like an idiot I lost today's hunting session sleeping till late, after more than two weeks of decent waves stop and only 24 hours available before other waves arrive ... Too much wine and roasted meat last night ... Damned Italy

      Here are my last 2 gold finds with the NOX.  Was in Oregon over the 4th and as I always do I like to hunt areas most other have issues with, the old workings that has the iron trash.  These 2 finds are very different kinds of gold and pretty far apart, but yellow metal no less.  The large specimen is 3.96 ozt and the small nugget is 1.6 grams.
      Did anyone else get out for the 4th or recent hunts and add to their heavy metal collection?

      A short trip out to Tibooburra in far west NSW Australia,  we managed to get about 150 nano nuggets, for just over 12 grams, but hey it was fun and catching up with people we have meet over the years as well was great.
      The gold and some of the places along the way.
      10" and 12" spiral x-coils were used on the Zed

      Towns along the way

      Largest Gold Find in Idaho for 2020, you tell me.

      As some of you who have been on DP for quite a many years, you know one of my focuses of chasing gold is in tailing piles.   My biggest finds have all been in tailing piles and I feel most folks just don’t have the patience to get skunked for hours and sometimes days or weeks.  But the rewards can be very gratifying for those who are dedicated and don’t mind a few “0” nugget days.  Well since I’ve been training customers for 25 yrs, I see some of them actually taking that next step.  Hats off to them as I know how hard they truly hunt.
      This particular customer is most certainly there at the Advance Level.  He has found some amazing pieces of gold in years past with every gold detector he purchased from me.  But to pull off this one only took his 3rd trip out with a 3 week old Equinox 800.

      Total weight of this beauty is over a pound coming in at 14.68 ounce troy.  Specific gravity shows right at 3.6 ounces of heavy thick creamy rich yellow metal.  I swear this year has been fantastic for my customers and I can’t even hardly keep up with their finds. 

      If anyone has seen a bigger piece of gold come from Idaho this year with a detector please let us know.  Heck, I’d just as soon be happy with anyone showing us some Idaho gold.

      So my question to everyone is this:  Would you rather find a bunch of smaller nuggets or a single big rock “Idaho Golden Delicious”.   Do you feel this piece is worthy of a museum and how would one go about getting it into an Idaho museum without outright donating it?  Has anyone been through the process?

      Now that the river level is starting to drop, I have been panning some flood gold. This gold came from 10 gallons of classified material. It was panned with a Garrett Super sluice pan. The flakes are so thin they will float on water. Hope you enjoy, it was nice to be outside and getting some gold.
