Popped My Zed Cherry Today

Recommended Posts

Great way to pop the ZED cherry with a couple golden ones (and a cold one of course).  So you get skunked on occasion?  That is why we enjoy those little ones so much when we do find gold.  Being able to continue even after the goose egg days is what separates most hunters.

Keep it up my friend and thanks for sharing.

Thank you Gerry. I hope this weekend will bear more fruit.

The first one is the hardest - glad to see you off to a good start with your new/used GPZ. :smile:

I plan to go out this weekend with maybe Brian. Maybe I can pickup some tips. 

There was several repeat signals I didn't dig because they didn't sound right. I dug several to find nothing after checking with the Nox. Went down to bedrock. I noticed there is a little more sharp a small size to target sounds. The kind I stopped digging where the broad and more mellow sounds. I am sure there might have been a real target. But I was trying to cover more on the claim picking off the good signals, saving the others for this weekend.

Stephen.....you MUST dig anything & everything that puts the slightest cough, fart, hiccup or blemish in the threshold. More so if it is repeatable.  That is just a MUST do.

Good luck out there

Nice going Stephen, great looking gold.  Sounds like there wont be much training going on, just finding nuggets :)

Brian.

      That speci I got a couple of weeks ago, I dropped it in Ali Brite about 5 days ago and it came up pretty good.   After it was cleaned the SG came down a fraction, it now sg`s at 2.082 grams gold 🙂

      About 3 or 4 years ago I ran a post about a specimen I got at Tarnagulla at about 6" with pretty well no visible gold, and the sg for quartz said there was maybe 1½ ozs of gold in it, but because there was rock other than quartz, I really don`t know how much gold there actually is.      At the time, I dropped it in acid and then promptly forgot about it till I came across it today.  😲               The main body of it is about half the size it started and there is now gold and gravel in the bottom of the jar.       I`ve taken this photo of the biggest bit remaining, renewed the acid and dropped it back in.         I wont forget it again (I hope).
      Sorry Mitchel, back to the dime   🙂

      I have been scanning 35 mm Slides and came across a guy now resting closer to the gold. He was a real gentle man.   He put a stop to my dredging when he let my wife wear his smaller 16 oz necklace. If I remember right that is a 30 plus oz in his hand. The third photo is my collection of coarse gold I dredged that year.

      Finally got the skunk of the Gold Monster!  All small stuff but I've been in such a drought this year I'm happy to detect any gold at all at this point.  The stuff on the right side of the pan is my oldest son's, he was using his Gold Bug II.  He turned over a boulder and found 19 pieces under it.

      The wife and I got out for a couple of hour detect today and about 1 hour in I got a really iffy signal with the 7000 and it sounded like it was down maybe a couple of inches.    I was really surprised when the hole started getting deeper and deeper and the target was still there. When I was down about 8" in hard ground I got the 2300 my better half was using so I could pinpoint cause I really couldn`t tell where in the hole it was and down about the 12" mark this piece popped out. Looking at it from the side it pretty well looks like a rock but all around the edges there are hundreds of tiny pinpoints of gold.                                                                                                                                   It sg`s at 2.1 grams gold and is my biggest piece in quite some time. 🙂

      Does every metal detector differentiate between junk metal and more valuable metals such as coins or gold? If yes, then how it does?
      Thanks in advance.
