Video Of Live Dig - Raw Action And Emotions With The Old Heavy Minelab Gpz-7000


Recommended Posts


That was a very unusual piece of gold. Good to see the GPZ showing its grunt & raw power & depth. I am hoping the 17" coil on the 6000 can do similar, if there is any left at depth that previous machines & coils haven't already got. My experience so far with the 6000 it seems there aren't any bigger deeper ones left in my neck of the woods. That is with the 11" coil but I am waiting for a 17"  hoping I am wrong. Here is hoping. Wicked find that one Gerry. What has happened to it? Has to be a keeper for sure.

When stood up it looks like "Lady in a golden robe" and that's what he calls her.

That is one of the most odd shaped nuggets I think I’ve seen. Can anyone explain how it would end up that shape?

I'm not a geologist so I'll allow anyone with more knowledge than I to post an answer.  

I've been digging gold nuggets for 20_ years with a metal detector and never seem anything like it.

I have found some nice leaf gold, but much smaller in size.

I think it might show up at a gold show this next winter and or an auction house of fine gold specimens.  It's the biggest leaf gold piece I have ever seen.

The GPX-6000 will get bigger and deeper gold, we just have to quit going behind all the other older detectors as they don't miss big gold.  Good luck.

      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…
