Here are a couple more videos, these ones are much higher video quality so you can see the soil type better, it's very firm hard soil.  It reminds me of my backyard in Brisbane / Australia, I had the same colour firm soil with the patchy grass where virtually nothing would grow but weeds 🙂

Nice gold and videos, and it's good to see the small Gold Digger Picks ® in action over there, the ground looks quite hard more like what we're used to over here in Aussie, and I see the B&Z booster in there as well, good stuff.

cheers dave

What a dream 😍 that screaming loud sound on tiny bits...My diver dream right now is to have waterproofed amplifier!

And what a feeling to find gold in less obvious spots, also in a really vast area!

Must be really a joy for the soul.

Congratulations 🎉

The piece in that last vid is pretty gnarly.  

Vids are from Russia I believe Mitchel.

Did you hear the signal still present in the hole after the target was removed (last video), that is typical of deco ground, thats because the clay base layer is a different ground balance to the surface layer. I’d say by the look of the ground they would be suffering a lot from conductive signals which will explain why he’s using the smaller coil is such a wide open space.  By the look of things the ground is weathered green stones (meta-basalts, reddish chocolate coloured variety when weathered) which can be a real hassle to work when there is moisture about particularly with a dry top layer and damp base layer. 

It must frustrate them not being able to use the larger coils for coverage and depth in the deeper sections, you can never tell in uniform ground like that how deep the wash layer goes. Because the gold has weathered out in-situ a broken down reef or leader can go down quite some distance relative to the deco layer nearby, usually the nuggets get exposed to the environment in place with the country slowly washing away above one small sand sized particle at a time, because the old basalts are so uniform (similar to granite) they weather evenly hence the wide flat spaces similar to WA.

Yea, it is very mineralised soil that is all I know, an Equinox was tried and failed terribly, it was unusable.  These videos being much higher quality let you see what's going on a lot better than the previous videos.  It's pretty hard to capture a gold dig on video, I've tried so often but my gold to shotgun pellet ratio just makes it impossible and I give up, but I do love seeing gold dug on camera.

      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?

      Picked up my 10 inch x coil during the week, good to get out to my usual spot, picked up these in 2 hours detecting, really impressed with this coil.

      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.

      Last week I was training customers at Rye Patch so I missed out on the White's closing and all the comments, but I did make a little contribution (well deserved) in the White's Forum on DP. 
      When I returned I was overwhelmed with many emails, texts and pics of my customers recent finds. One thing about the CV-19 is it allows you to get outside and away from others.
      Also, what was interesting to me is the different kinds of gold and the states they came from.
      Here are some pictures of my customers Success, the detectors they used and the states they recently found their gold.  Hats off to you all for allowing me to share your success.
      This very interesting and highly collectible specimen piece was found in Idaho with an Equinox 800 (dang, how did I miss that one?)  Notice that is the stock 11" coil.

      The next 2 pics were found in NV with the NOX and stock 11" coil

      2 pics below of the same gold and were found in MT with EQ-800 and small 6" coil.

      Nice solid pieces.
       
      Then there is my customer in AZ with his GPZ-7000.  He has been doing really well this year with over a half pound.  The 3 pics are from 3 half day hunts in a row.  He ended up with about a half oz of gold.  He has a buddy come to visit and says I found some right here, why don't you head over there. 
      The 3+ ouncer below was found by his buddy who came to visit.  Ouch, that must be one heck of a friend. 

      Notice all those nuggets are pretty rough and have not traveled that far.  AZ still has good gold, just need to get a little farther away from the trails.
       
      Last is gold from a state most of us to not get to see.  Wyoming is not known for gold nuggets, but I do have a few customers who do pretty well.
      These pieces of gold are very solid and look to be hammered almost.  I'm no geologist but think maybe from glacial?

      I also noticed the dirt coloration is different than most places I hunt and find gold  , but I don't hunt WY, yet anyway.
       
      Part of the reason I enjoy gold is the natural and unique characters each piece and area provide.
      Heck, there is a really ornate specimen, some nice jeweler nuggets and some really cool collector rocks with gold.  Even the big 3 ounce chunk is quite interesting as the source must be pretty close.
