Idahogold… thankyou for sharing your experience with us. I can’t say which was more fascinating, the bacon and eggs for breakfast or finding elusive gold… both looked awfully good to me!!! 

I enjoyed the video’s relaxed atmosphere, and fully appreciated that newcomers to the hobby will certainly benefit from watching your gold recovery technique. It’s still quite a revelation to see the tiny gold that can be detected by the SDC 2300. Congratulations on finding gold, and otherwise for an entertaining and instructive video. :cool:

Jim.

Hi Idahogold…. I’ve been hunting silver for 30+ years in northeastern Ontario, and have written many articles about it, occasionally profiling the utility of different VLF and PI models in those environs. Some of these were posted to Steve’s former AMDS forum, and more recently to the TreasureNet forum. Here’s a link to an example entitled Electronic Prospecting in Silver Country if you wish to view it. 

http://www.treasurenet.com/forums/canada/282315-electronic-prospecting-silver-country.html

I’ve had a lot of unusual and enjoyable experiences, and sometimes managed to find good silver. It’s the entire package that interests me, hiking and exploring, photography, observing wildlife, campfire cookouts, and sleeping well outdoors. It’s been a privileged and altogether wonderful life through the pursuit of this hobby. In retrospect, I wouldn’t change anything even were it possible to do so.

For the present at least, my interest has turned to searching for non-detectable minerals such as the example depicted immediately below. In keeping with your comments, I’ve also added a multi-photo of silver.

Thanks for the nice reply, and hopefully we’ll have the chance to shoot the breeze again here. Incidentally, I quite enjoyed your post about the apparently not-so-elusive Sasquatch!!! It was an entertaining tale. Happy Trails. :smile:

Jim.

      We hit a plantation down in the low country and dug some relics. Heres a tip if your having problems in the iron cut the machine sensitivity back to 18 -20 and it will help a lot. I think some try to run it to hot in the iron and it causes all kinds of problems for them.

      The five cent piece is the smallest coin in circulation in Australia now and most of my photos where I have used a coin for scale I have used a 5 cent and the creature on the coin is the echidna.  In the 7 years I have lived in Victoria I have only ever seen maybe a dozen echidnas, but what makes this guy so special is this morning he was in my back yard.😯😯😯         The half grammer came from Cockatoo Bush a couple of years ago, but I have seen way more half grammers than echidnas. 🙂 Dave
