Great finds, the GPZ is a great unit, I saw first hand how dangerous it is to hunted ground in the right hands.    Lol

More likely weathering and erosion are the reason. 

Skill, knowledge & understanding by the operator plays a big factor. No matter what detector is used. Observation & imagination when out in the field are also key assets. IMHO.

Good luck out there

Edit:..... Yes weathering & erosion is 100% why the gold we find detecting is where it is, but after that,what I said is the contributing factor to actually finding it. More so when you go back to an area that has produced & find more. I guess the reason for that is that you know you have found gold there before so you go back with your best game cap on & really sharpen your senses,  get yourself fully mentally "ground balanced". Tune up your detector to as hot as you are comfortable with & then go beyond what you are comfortable with & learn to deal with it. Magic happens. Your ears & mind go to another level. Hit the ground low & slow. Bingo.....

Not in the situation being referred to but since you apparently know what it's all about I won't say any more.

      Hi all, I have been reading this excellent forum for a couple of years and recently  joined. I live in southern Victoria, Australia and have been detecting on and off for about 20 years and have had a little success but nothing to write home about, but I do enjoy the hobby. I currently own a GPZ7000. I think it is quite heavy but it is amazing the small pieces it can find.   This photo is what I have found so far in 2020.   I do quite a lot of trips away where I come home empty handed.   The piece in the middle is 4.92 grams and the total weight here is 6.01 grams. All these pieces were found around Talbot in central Victoria.    All the best.

      Made for another long 10hr day in the Arizona desert out my front door at 0430hrs  and searching dirt at 0700. After about an hour picked up a little 1.7g meteorite high up on one of the ridges and after a another couple hours finally scored a little .2g piece of goodness in a tailings pile on my way back to the Jeep, I raked down the remainder of the pile but nothing else except tiny bits of rusted tin. Drank a cup of coffee and munched a little trail mix while driving a couple miles to a new spot and after a few hours walking up a small wash I spooked a large jack rabbit he darted out a couple feet and then stopped looking at me about 10 feet away so I started talking to him asking where I might have some better luck. He seemed to understand we were at peace together and relaxed standing up and stretching as he listened to my query flopping his long ears side to side he sat back down and peered up the wash in the direction I was heading as if to say just a little farther up. I poured a small pool of water from my bottle on the ground in case he might be thirsty in thanks and continued on my way, my rabbit friend calmly watched as I took his advise Walking slowly swinging zed. After about 10 min in the middle of the wash next to a small bush I picked up a mellow hi lo tone and scored a slightly bigger .7g piece. It was now nearly 1700hrs and worn out from my long day I decided to call it and headed home for a long night of leg cramps from over doing it, but with a little bit of yellow to show for my efforts well worth the pain.

      I just got back home yesterday from wintering in Arizona and am now seemingly a prisoner in my own home due to the virus. I was able to go out detecting many times with only a few skunk days. The last day out, I found this specimen that is quite different from anything I had found before.

      Hey Guys,
         I had to social distance myself, so I decided on a trip back to the old placers.  Like always, digging tons of iron rubbish, this time I must of dug a dozen iron pick tips.  I'm sure they were using the tips to pry open crack and it would just snap off the tips.  I was working with my Minelab GPZ 7000 all day, moving rocks and racking sections of bedrock off.  I ended up with 6.2 Grams of the good stuff in 5 gold nuggets total.  
      I didn't get a picture of all the nuggets or a final shot, but here are a few I took during the earlier hours.  A few pieces wedged in the bedrock cracks.  
      Wishing and praying for health and wellness for you all during these crazy Coronavirus times. 
      Rob
