This Has To Be One Of The Best Videos I Have Seen In Awhile!

Recommended Posts

A lot of good gold was got from the pine plantation at Creswick back in the VLF days. Thanks for the memories, and best of luck finding all those ones we missed with the Garrets and Whites in the early 1980's. 😂

 My father introduced me to prospecting at a very young age. I can tell you from experience that this young man is doomed for a very rough life. I hope he enjoys his doom as much as I have.

The 1st part is boring...but what the heck, it's real and I to can take a few minutes trying to find a tiny nugget.  The small size of those nuggets are very impressive and he really does it well at the end when he scores a "monster" nice chunk of Au.  

I see the next JP in this young mans career as he gets better.. if he sticks to it.

Thanks for sharing.

Cool as can be, wish I had been introduced to detecting at an early age.

Cute video.  Wish my dad could have bought me a 6K detector when I was young, but when I was young you could buy a home for 6k.  If I had a place to hunt like that, I'd buy one in a heart beat!

      Early wet Weather in Northern Nevada, sure messed up a few of my hunts!  But, this last Hunt was called Rain or Shine!  Be there or miss out with the original hunting party.  We had half the amount of coils on the ground during this hunt and managed to find a few sweet spots of dinks to add to our pokes.  Rain on us with snow in the ground 200’ above us all 4-Days!  6000, Retune Button got a workout.  I kept the 11” Mono on.  Tried the DD for a few hours with no luck, don’t know if the ground and line I took was bad, but the guys behind me where finding nuggets…so back to the 11”.  My truck is out in the drive way in the wet Weather still loaded up with me gear!  Getting wet again to unload it, I can’t wait 🤨
      Until the next Hunt!

      Is there or has there been any comparison testing done in the field on depth with the 6000 vs the 7000 using the NF 12" Z-search coil.
      Thanks . . .

      I had something strange happen, today. I had my GPX 6000 battery fully charged and fresh off the charger.  It had completed its charge cycle and then trickle charged overnight.  I popped it in the detector and started detecting. Within five minutes the battery meter dropped from three bars to two bars.  If I turned off the detector and let it sit for a 5-10 minutes and then turned it back on, it would go back up to three bars for a short period of time before then going back to two bars. Has anyone else noticed this with theirs?

      as I already put in another post, I just bought a second-hand gpx 5000.  It comes with the comander 11 DD and 11Mono coils.  I would like if it is possible for a colleague to recommend a coil to complement the ones it brings.  Its use would be to search for coins.  I've been looking at the detech 15 inch DD ultra sensing.  If anyone has used it, what can you tell me about it?

      Hey all, still have a gpx 4000 I bought from AK M&D. Guess it's time for an upgrade. My Question is does the 4500 have enough improvements to justify the upgrade
    • By The_Stalker
      After reading all items available I am confused.  It's probably just me so I apologize if this is a dumb question.  In soil that has low mineralization which coil will go deeper and is more suitable, a DD coil or a mono coil of equal size?  Or in low mineralization does it not matter if you use a DD or a mono coil?
