Video Of Live Dig - Raw Action And Emotions With Minelab Gpx-6000


Recommended Posts

Yes I finally did get a chance to hunt for larger gold with the GPX-6000.

This video has some quirks and I am sorry.  Shooting video is not my expertise as you can tell.  Error #1 and many of us do it.  Keep the phone Horizontal (left to right) to get full size viewing.  Error #2, be sure to have someone else shooting the video while holding camera Horizontal and not shaking as much.  Now for the bit of info that many of you may have missed in this video.  I won't reply with answer yet, but will give a hint "sound".

So yes a get a little excited and yes I mumble and stumble for words.  Heck I sometimes freeze up and slowly look around to make sure nobody sees it or me.  I have heard other do that as well, why?  What would you do?

It's funny how I get so excited over a find and sometimes it's not near the biggest I have recovered.  I guess because I set a goal for a trip to go and dig a nicer piece of gold than what I and most others in the US have been finding.  Then if it happens, the emotions release.  I'll tell you guys this about me and a select few who I hunt with.  Patience is tough for most detectorists and the average Joe (no pun intended) can't hang.  Let me rephrase that, the average Joe has not learned the patience game yet.  When I go to hunt bigger gold, I usually end up with nothing for 3 full days straight.  Heck, I've went 6 days, average 7 hr swing time = 40+hours and not 1 nugget to show for.  Then the next trip I could find 2 in the 1st day, but not often.  

Your turn will come Rob as I know your skill and patience are proven.

Thanks for the kudos guys.

Great video and thank you for sharing it with us.

That is a very nice nugget and I thought you were going to have a heart attack once you found it. Glad to see people still get excited when they find something nice, it just shows you that there is still a kid in each and everyone of us.

 

Good luck on your next hunt Gerry!

Nobody has chimed in yet on the video of something I thought to be of importance.  Maybe a few salty dogs already caught on and are waiting for newer non seasoned nugget hunters?  Interesting🤔?

Nice to see the kid in you is alive and well Gerry, that's another aspect of detecting that isn't talked about too much but I think it counts for a lot. Enthusiasm.

Nice find.

The face that big chunker was a high low and not a low high? 

Great find Gerry! Love the video!

      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?
