More Finds With Eq800 In El Paso Mountains


Recommended Posts


That's a monster! Wow! well done.

Detectors like the GPX 5000 need a companion VLF to get the best results as they have their strong points, and their weak points which a VLF takes care of, it's not until the GPZ and now GPX 6000 that a VLF is far less necessary.

Well done.

I've used a 5000 in the El Pasos, a 7000 and my 800.  I've used the 800 the least but mostly with the 6 inch and all with limited success.  I've known others who have found and worked patches with GBs and Monsters.

On that piece that you show, what were the Nox Numbers?

If Pat doesn't meet up with you and his 5000 I could meet you there sometime.

Great looking nugget, you had some nice skills to obtain it I am sure.

One of these days I hope to get out west to find some of those pieces.

Good luck on your next hunt.

In the middle of Day 2 of Gerry McMullen's and assitants' 3 day class, he brings over a dozen gold specimens of many shapes, sizes, and compositions.  Then he takes the state-of-the-art detectors (including GPX, GPZ, and top IB/VLF's) to see which detectors sound off on which nuggets.  Best part of the lecture section of the class (but obviously not close to the one-on-one in-field instruction that follows).

Anyone who was paying attention during that demonstration won't be surprised at your experience with the GPX5k, nor the haul that Gerry and his expert assitants have made with that detector over the years.
