Hi steve and other members.

I just joined this forum and would like to introduce myself.

My name is Dale I live and prospect in Australia.

I have been prospecting for 16 years and have been a full time prospector for the last 6 years.

I also love treasure hunting and go to europe every second year to look for ancient coins and treasure, and also enjoy searching for treasure in Australia although there are no pre euopean settlement metallic artifacts.

I look forward to sharing my experience's with the members of this forum.

Best regards

Gold Hound

Dale,

 

Nice to see your post.  It is early in the morning here so a bit later when the sun is nearer to up you will get more response.

 

I'd like to hear more about England but of course about being a full time prospector for over 6 years.

 

Are you using the Zed now?

Hi Mitchel

I have not been to england but have looked in various other country's in europe

I have found well over 1000 ancient hammered coins and alot of ancient jewelry letter seal's and other stuff.

I love the thrill I get when I dig up somthing old, my three favorite pieces that i have found are an Aleksander the great Hercules lion head coin about 2600 yers old, a late Byzantine silver bracelet about 700 years old and a gold lion earring that is about 2600 also from Aleksander the great era.

My wife and I both own zeds now but are yet to swing them as I am currently injured.

Dale,

 

Nice relic finds.  What is your 'go to' relic machine?

 

Far North Queensland ... I've watched every minute but it took me several sits!  

 

You are expanding the 'known' gold zones in Australia for us.

 

Thanks.

      I am Domenico from little country Belgium. I'm a beach hunter, and have been reading this forum for ages....I decided to sign in to share my beach hunting experiences (since 1994), and especially because I'm enjoying my new equinox 800....It pays off on €-coins and jewelry...
      I am more interested in metal detectors than in finds, but with this Equinox, I'm in Paradise...
       
      See you on the forum !

      I had just returned from a trip to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. After poking around in some of the the many 1800's stone foundations found there, I became very interested in detecting again after lightly exploring it during my youth.  Given the island's history and location, I'm sure that there is a wealth of undiscovered booty to be had there still.
      I'm very glad to have found this site and it's wealth of good information. I eagerly look forward to learning all I can from everyone here.

      Hello to you all,
      Have been detecting for about 4 years/450 hours.  In the spring of 2017 I decided it was time for me to upgrade. Since then I pondered 3/4 detectors of different makes/models. After more than a year of watching and reading detectortests on the web, today I finally made my choice. Thanks to Steve's posts and the videos of "Calabash Digger" and this forum I've ordered today a Minelab Equinox 800 and registered an account on DetectorProspector.com.  
      Hope we all will be members of the "Minelab Equinox Fan Club" for a long time! 
      Greetings to all from a Dutchman, living in Belgium.

      Greetings to all.
      New member here from Michigan.
      I've been detecting for about the last 10 yrs.  I did my very first detecting as a kid with my father many yrs ago, 1969-70 ish with an old BFO machine.  Lots of silver in those days!
      I wish Michigan was a state where nugget hunting was a possibility!  I went out west and hunted tailings on Patented land as a guest, through a friend, and had a great time. I even bought a used GMT for the trip, with the intent of future trips west.  A couple Grandchildren later, and those intended nugget hunting trips may now be more of a hope than reality?
      I've been popping in for the last couple yrs and enjoyed reading about members nugget hunting adventures, and general information on gold detecting.  I figured it was time to join Steve's Forums.
