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.

      I have been experimenting with adjusting reactivity using wireless module only using version 5.2.  Some folks may not be aware version 5.2 allows for reactivity setting using wireless module.  As far as I can tell it does NOT allow silencer adjustment per se.  I have a video in the works and it will be up sometime in near future explaining.

      Every year some of us have an 'opportunity' to go to Australia and prospect for a few weeks.  Some of us pull the trigger and some of us don't. (I'm not talking 'Paul' type of trip where you outfit yourself for months.)
      Now is the time to book that type of trip.  I'm sure many Australians book trips also.
      Which tour has the 'best' three week or so, all in or tag along trip and to what part of Australia?  We'd be bringing our own detector, a 7000 and just want to get put on or near a gold patch or two.
      If you have been there and done that recently it would sure help to know your story.  Maybe this is the year to pull the trigger.
