Today’s Finds With The Nox

Recommended Posts

Groundscanner and I detected today in a site that has been detected for years with numerous detectors. These finds were found in about a 3 hour timespan. We probably need to go back again. ? Looks like this machine makes the old sites new again.

That's quite a number of missed targets. I find the Nox does respond to targets that should have been found previously but weren't. Some of them at fairly shallow depths. A return trip is definitely in order.

      So got back out to my one nugget producing spot here in VA, this past Saturday.  Four of us in total went I was swinging the GPX4800 with the 15x12 commander mono coil, my buddy was swinging my equinox 800 with stock coil, and my two other friends (the ones who originially found this place), were swing the GPX5000 with a 11 commander DD coil.  
      In total i got 4 nice nuggets for the day, the GPX5000 got 2 and the equinox 800 unfortunately got skunked.  Biggest nugget was 2.3 grams, smallest was 6 grains.  I also got a steel ball that came from a civil war case shot shell.  
      All three detectors ready to go for the next days planned adventure.  

      Fording the high creek water to get to the detecting area.

      All the trash dug in the search for gold.  100+ pieces.  

      I got some good video footage so i should have a video up in the next few days.

      Hi All,
      Had a quick hunt today at an old home site. Currently a grassed park, there was a house on the site in the 1950's. I targeted the area that looked like a couple of clotheslines in the aerial. The aerial isn't of great quality so difficult to confirm. I ended up finding a couple of old lipstick tubes in the area which makes me think there may have been a couple of upturned pockets in the area (i.e. a clothesline or two). Unfortunately no coins or anything else of value...
      I'll be heading back there when I have grown my confidence with the machine.
      Cheers all

      A few finds that are copper pieces, A nice point, a rolled trade bead and an unfinished copper piece that was copper nuggets that had been joined by pounding together but not yet  a finished tool......I actually found the point in my front yard while testing a new MD...Copper nuggets were found in the Chititu area and were traded by the local natives to other tribes for toolmaking.. A friend found a small fishhook that was very interesting..

      I found this at the same place the 1899 Barber Dime came from, the old farm where I grew up in Wisconsin. It appears to be brass, and the thin strip of metal makes a "bwonggg" sound when plucked. Any guesses?
