A Little Deeper, A Little Bigger, My Gpx-6000 Nugget


Recommended Posts


Hey Gerry,

  Great looking piece of gold and congrats on your first of many nuggets at depth to be found with the new Minelab GPX 6000.  I wish I had more free time to visit other State's goldfields, hopefully some day when I retire.  Speaking of retirements, what is the secret, "sell more detectors?"  :biggrin:

Thanks for sharing,

Rob

That's what Minelab wants us to do.  We talk them up, show them off,  post pics and videos so we can make a few bucks, but in reality they are the ones raking in for retirement.  Oh well, at least we make some money at what we love.

How do I post that video on here as I tried a few times?

It's best to upload it to YouTube and just paste the link to it on here and it will embed itself, I'd like to see the video Gerry.

That's a nice nugget.

Doing a job that's also your hobby and passion is almost as good as being retired and in some ways better as you have access to all of the latest gear!

      Had another good month hunting the low tide wet sand slopes at a few local beaches. Some large surf eroded out a few areas, lots of black sand and lots of targets! Spent half the time in "All-Metal" and half in "Tone Mode".  For me, tone mode comes in very handy when weeding out those annoying pesky tent stakes when there is an abundance of them on the beach. I ran stock settings for tone mode and it worked out great at one of the beaches I was working that was littered with tent stakes!  The find of the month was a nice 14k LeVian ring, the surprise find of the month was another gold tooth crown, which makes my 3rd for the year! Acid tested it and confirmed it's 18k. I see Compass found one recently too. You would think the cremation process would completely melt the crowns into blobs, I guess the heat doesn't reach that point? Anyway it was a fun month. I went out recently after the oil spill for a night time negative low tide hunt, beaches were pretty sanded in unfortunately. I did encounter some tar blobs on the beach, but I always wear muck boots when hunting the wet sand anyway so I had no issues with oil on my feet. I was surprised to see a surfer out in the night time waters and also someone walking their dog on the shore..
      So totals for the month were:
      10k - 2.1 grams
      14k - 15.7 grams
      18k Dental Gold - 4.1 grams
      925 - 3.65 oz
      Thanks for looking, GL & HH out there!

      A friend is here helping me while I recover from arm surgery…  I’m running the Kubota and we’re pushing in my front yard… within 100’ of my front door.  Well done Mark…
