JP I don't think we could ask for much more than that. 

We can! JP feel free to send each member some of that beautiful gold popcorn you keep finding. Also keep on letting us enjoy your sold tech pointers.

It would surely have registered on my scale 🙂 You should see some of the small stuff that I find at times (BB size or smaller). Really fun to recover those with the 14 in coil...Thanks for sharing the pics. Very cool! Aussie land is just on a different level than anything we have here in the US.

Thanks Gold Catcher, been away for a while without the computer. I dont mind digging up.01 Gram pieces all day. Stuffed at the end of the day but a smile on the dial all the way back to camp, cheers sturt

Great job, that "little stuff " adds up quick!!


Hi Chris. This location was and still is flogged all Winter each year. The whole area would be probably 25 Acres. There is holes 12 inches to 18 inches deep in some locations. I have spent time all over this and eventually was my reason to change over from the 5000 to 7000 series in desperation that I was missing gold.  Nothing worse than turning up to the site and find holes in spots that you have already spent hours searching around. A couple of prospectors told me that it was cleaned years ago but each year I find pieces. Now I know if I setup the 7000 properly and dont rush over the ground, the 7000 seriously amazes me what it can find. The contribution from all people on this site is so important especially JP and other professional detecting persons, cheers sturt

      Only an Aussie could pull this one off!
      A true story from the Mount Isa in Queensland.

      Recently a routine Police patrol car parked outside a local neighbourhood pub.

      Late in the evening the officer noticed a man leaving the bar so intoxicated that he could barely walk.

      The man stumbled around the car park for a few minutes, with the officer
      quietly observing. After what seemed an eternity and trying his keys on five
      vehicles. The man managed to find his car, which he fell into.

      He was there for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the bar and drove off. Finally he started the car, switched the wipers on and off (it was a fine dry night). Then flicked the indicators on, then off, tooted the horn and then switched on the lights.

      He moved the vehicle forward a few cm, reversed a little and then remained
      stationary for a few more minutes as some more vehicles left. At last he pulled
      out of the car park and started to drive slowly down the road.

      The Police officer, having patiently waited all this time, now started up the patrol car, put on the flashing lights, promptly pulled the man over and carried out a random breathalyser test.

      To his amazement the breathalyser indicated no evidence of the man's intoxication.

      The Police officer said "I'll have to ask you to accompany me to the Police station - this breathalyser equipment must be broken."

      "I doubt it," said the man, "tonight I'm the designated decoy".
      Do you have a designated drive (not decoy) system in USA.

      I thought I'd take a closer look at which of Magnetic Island's old gold diggings are within the borders of the National Park.. The first image is a map of the island showing the National Park borders.. the second image is a Google Earth map showing the locations of the old gold diggings..
