Steve H. Garrett 24K Videos


Recommended Posts

Some more good news for people interested in buying the Garrett 24k, more coils are on their way from Nel, after next two months I assume means they'll be released in time for Christmas? 🙂 Maybe some Nel coils will be under the tree for me, especially the Snake.

Excellent news! I’d much prefer a Snake coil over the old White’s 4x6 DD with the added air space in the bottom, I was thinking of getting one of those and shaving the bottom off, but I’d rather have a NEL. Really good news, thanks Simon! 3.5” x 6.5”, just a perfect little coil for the 24K.

It clearly demonstrates the international reach Garrett has that Whites did not.  The 24k Whites version has been out for a couple of years, nothing out of Nel, Garrett releases it and instantly Nel is onboard with making coils for it and I loved how their response was "Of course" 🙂

Garrett releasing the 24k from an international perspective was an excellent move by Garrett. They're back in the game now and soon to be at the top for the dedicated prospecting VLF's I think.

I absolutely can not wait to get a Snake coil for the 24k, that combined with the Concentric 6" Garrett coil is the perfect combination for me and my detecting areas and I'll still have the 10x6" for ground coverage when necessary. Satisfied at last!

Backing up what Simon said, I just received my new Garrett Goldmaster 24k and was very happy to see that the box had labeling in four languages including Arabic. Same for the Quick Start Guide. Garrett is definitely serious about marketing and mass producing this excellent detector.

I always had a feeling that my original Whites 24k had either a control box or coil issue. It would overload easily, had some weird audio issues occasionally and was sometimes hard to ground balance. The Garrett version that I received and tested today had zero issues. I tested the Whites version and the Garrett 24K on the exact same targets that are buried in my yard including gold nugget targets. I could run the Garrett 24K at sensitivity of 8 with no issues. The Whites version would overload on sensitivity 4. The stock Whites coil was also very knock sensitive. This Garrett coil (which actually seems lighter as does the entire detector) had no knock sensitivity at all. Very impressed.

Looks like they're chasing the African and Middle Eastern market, very smart!  Thanks Jeff for the information.  Mine's just departed Los Angeles airport, hopefully next stop Auckland!  haha, right as I typed that an SMS came through from DHL saying it's cleared customs in Sydney, Australia, so next stop Sydney! Then Auckland.  close now... so very close....

Probably a bad coil, not unknown with White's. Garrett went through the machine, and I know they paid particular attention to the coils, so the Garrett 24K had an extra layer of vetting before it went into production.

Steve..from your comment I have the impression ,, that the sensitivity setting - works with the 24K goldmaster also as an RX Gain setting ... And you're right .. for a properly IB balanced coil it will work with even more sensitivity settings on really more mineralized terrain .. .without interfering overload ..

I would be interested in how much a change in the Threshold setting will also affect the sensitivity and range of the detector in practical detection at a lower and mid setting of Sensitivity / RxGain / ...

      We hit a Colonial site today that will be lost to development this week.  Sorry about the pics left the finds in my pouch. We are losing sites here at a very fast pace.

      Hello All,
          I have a lot of video footage and pictures from earlier this season, mostly around the Summer time.  I'm just getting some free time to get some of the stuff uploaded and posted.  I figured this would be a nice nugget to post and see right before the Thanksgiving weekend.  This piece was found under about a foot of hardpack, caliche gravels.  This particular gold nuggets, as seen in the video was wedged in a bedrock crack/crevice.  Just makes you think how many years (hundreds, thousands?) this piece has been hiding there.  
      The nugget was difficult to remove from hand tools as we didn't want to damage the piece not knowing the actual size or shape.  We ended up using a Hammer Drill with a chisel bit to extract the gold nugget.  
      The nugget ended up weighing right at 1/4 ounce solid.  We also found another smaller one, about 1/2 Gram in the same crack prior to this piece.  I dug the first smaller one out, but knew it was way too loud of a signal on the GPZ 7000 for it to be that small nugget.  Low and behold, we scanned over the spot again and the signal was pretty much just as load as originally.  
      Tool used were the Minelab GPZ 7000, Minelab GPX 6000, Garrett AT Pinpointer, hand tools, picks and the Hammer Drill.  
      Here is a short video below of the gold nugget find and extraction.  Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving.  Thanks God we are able to enjoy such a wonderful hobby searching for gold.

      Yuba River Crevice Detecting for Gold Nuggets 
      Me and Gary head back to Mother Yuba in search of Gold Nuggets and are joined by Tim from Blue lead Gold Productions.
      Let's Find some Gold on Mother Yuba !!!
      We are armed with the Minelab SDC 2300 and the White's Gold Master V-Sat that gives us both a Pulse Induction detector and a VLF detector.
      While me and Gary clear the boulders off Bedrock to detect Tim gets right to Sluicing with his Angus MacKirk Sluice box.
      The Yuba is known for it's small Gold so he should do pretty good !!!
      Moving those Boulders is hard work but that's what needs to happen to expose the Bedrock Crevices and get those Nuggets in our pockets !!!

      Hello All,
         Here is a short video of a very nice crack/crevice we found earlier this year during the Summer Monsoons.  Prior to this find, we were just weekend warriors placering various areas and metal detecting for nuggets finding a small handful of nuggets per day.  We were not finding anything to really write home about, just the common US nuggets from about a quarter gram and up to 3-4 grams.  
      Working one of these dry creeks, we were hitting a few nuggets in the cracks, but found one we decided to chase down deeper.  Normally we don't do this, as digging down several feet or more to bedrock can be a lot of work, especially if you don't recover anything.  We had a wild hair, so we decided to do so and this spot paid off very well.  As you can see in the video below, the crack started off with two amazing gold nuggets, one was 2.2 ounces solid (just a flat lump) and the other was 1.01 ounces.  The gold nuggets were almost side by side in the same crevice as shown.  
      We ended up finding 3-4 smaller gram sized nuggets in the same crevice, but the bedrock popped right up and the gold just disappeared.  It was a great moral boost for the Summer season, as it's normally pretty hot and nasty during the Summer Monsoons in the Southwestern US.  
      The tools we normally use are shovels, metal rake, crevice tools, metal detector(s) and pinpointer.  We were using the Minelab GPZ 7000 with the new Nugget Finder Z Search 12" coil in this video.  The pinpointer we typically use is the Garrett AT Pinpointer (Orange one).  
      Hope you all enjoy the video.  If you would like to follow us on Youtube, make sure you "Subscribe" to our channel to see all the new videos.  
      Wishing you all a Happy upcoming Thanksgiving and a wonderful prospecting season.  Hope you all have some lunkers under your coils this season! 
      Rob

      The weight is about the same as a T2se. Is the balance of a 24k similar to the T2se?
