  1. Day 3... The final day of the holiday extended weekend; back to work tomorrow.😞 on the bright side, it's only a 4-day work week.πŸ˜€ So I did leave the phone turned off and in the truck this time, but I put the 11” mono coil back on; that means no pictures of the digs today, just the final weigh-in. I decided to run in Auto+ sensitivity all day, and got used to doing occasional noise cancels, but there were a few times that the threshold just wouldn’t settle down enough for my liking, even when reducing the sensitivity to 7. In these instances, I would perform the reset procedure to reboot the machine to the factory presets. The audio was amazingly stable after each reset, even after changing the Sensitivity back to Auto+, and would last a few minutes before the EMI returned. This area is prone to bad EMI; it's random and intermittent, and I couldn’t manually tune it out with the GPZ 7000 either - just had to wait until it abated, then hunt until it returned, then wait, etc. The EMI issue was almost negligible when running the GPX 6000 at Rye Patch, so I know it's not the machine. Nevertheless, I was able to snag seven more bits of gold, including a 0.4 of a gram piece at 4 or 5 inches - the largest of the day - and the smallest of the day, a wee 0.05 of a gram. Also dug several trash targets. So in all for for the weekend, 16 pieces of gold in an area gridded several times with several machines, to me is more than just finding missed targets; the GPX 6000 has some serious magic going on under the hood. Oh, another cool thing I noticed is that, of the few hot rocks in the area, the 6k quickly tracks them out.πŸ™‚

  2. I have been dying to find a trime for quite a while and seriously loosing sleep on thinking about it. So it's July 5th and after a ton of weekend rain I called my buddy to see if he wanted to take a go somewhere. He wanted to take me to an old colonial cellar hole site that he and another friend hunted a lot. I did not have high hopes of a great hunt but it was better than sitting at home. This place was crazy weird with random broken/disappearing signals, which I soon found out was caused by some very strange sandstone that my detector and pointer would pick up on. So after 3 hours of crap signals and misc. doo-dads, I decided to change locations. I walked down range about 150 meters and proceeded to hit some new ground. Low and behold it was quite chatter free and insect free. I was hunting near a small blown over tree and saw a dig hole,so I drifted about 5 feet away and got THE first solid tone of the day a unwavering 19 on the 800. Well jeez louis, I don't care what it is. Expecting a copper button or such, I proceeded with the dig. The plug was a 0 but the hole was coming up hot. I scraped away 4 inches of dirt and the hole went blank. The pointer nailed it and out popped a what I thought was an aluminium snap button. I snatched it up gave it a rub and Holy S**T I found a Trime!!!! I consider myself a pretty tough guy, But I have to admit I shed a little tear. This is a coin I have been chasing for a long time. Well my poor close up vision and my death grip on the coin clouded my brain. I called my buddy over to look at my trime and he proceeded to tell me I did NOT repeat NOT find a Trime but a 1857 seated 1/2 dime. Well being in love with the trimes I was highly disappointed. I Have this seated coin on my bucket list but a little lower on the scale. My buddy thought I was nuts, maybe I am? Another hour and a half yielded a 1864 and 1865 indian head and some other cool doo dads for me, And my buddy rolled out with a beautiful 1874 shield nickle and 2 1864 indian heads. Happy yes, But I can't get the trime thing out of my head.

  3. Got into a very old beach this past weekend. Little surprised to see someone has been hammering the place fairly good. Looked like they were working a trough, "Low area" close to shore and maybe cherry picking? For there were several deep signals left ... So I dug all.. Was using the Fisher AQ PI.. One Gold Ring, and 8 more Silvers.. couple V Nickels and a transit toke from Washington DC. The wedding band is brass, the silver came up clean for this location and uncommon to find these dates, so that area I will be watching close. These troughs in time can slowly move into un-hunted areas.

  4. First time for the Big en in this field. With very little fresh drops last couple years the coins have been diminishing. First time I broke $3 in there this year. Only 2 shallow coins (same hole) the rest from about 5 to 7.5 inches. Trash is getting scarce too. I've taken everything out of this field threw the years Except Gold. Had to call the hunt, temp on the field got between 90 & 100. So not wanting to join the buried, I bailed. Pic shows today's hunts totals. $3.08 , 21 coins. no bling, little trash. Using a nice plug cutter and the Tarsacci 12". That 12 inch was hunting over old ground I've hunted with other machines including the Tarsacci with standard coil. So there's that.

  5. Bogene’s setting will will not completely eliminate EMI on the 7000, but they do help to some degree. I found the best way with the 6000 using the 11” Mono is to use Zero Threshold in Manual Sensitivity mode (2.5 second long press the Ground type button) and just keep lowering the sensitivity till the EMI stops breaking through. The 6000 still has pretty good performance on shallower gold even with the sensitivity on its lowest point. If the ground conditions are mild Auto+ has the ability to increase the detectors outright sensitivity much further than flat out manual mode, so in variable EMI areas the EMI will sound worse in Auto+ compared to full manual mode. If EMI is bad it might pay to just use Difficult mode rather than Normal, Normal is a combination of Difficult and Normal all at once whereas Difficult is a dedicated timing which even though offering less outright depth will help create less confusion in the target signal. Sensitivity to small gold even at depth will remain the same as all the small gold sensitivity/depth comes from the Difficult timing when in Normal anyway. If you find yourself continually performing EMI tuning then it is a good idea to fully reset the detector from time to time by holding in the power button at switch on, this clears everything back to factory default allowing you to start afresh. I also recommend giving the detector time to warm up from start up before doing another EMI tune too soon, you can tell when the detector is functioning properly when the threshold stops being dominant. Hope this helps JP

  7. Day two: The goldfields greeted me in the morning with sunny blue skies and a nice cool breeze. I was trying out the DD coil this time to see if it would mitigate the EMI issues I was having with the mono coil. Upon power-up, the GPX 6000 defaulted to the EMI Cancel mode, and I set the Sensitivity to Auto+. The threshold was very unstable, no better than when running the mono coil; I backed the sensitivity down to manual 7, but, although better, the threshold was still erratic. Performing a couple of noise cancels didn't seem to help much, either. Then it finally occurred to me to do a reset to the factory preset, and sure enough, the machine settled right down. Whew, thought there was a real problem there for a few.πŸ˜… The threshold still wasn’t ultra-smooth, as it is on a GPX-5000 with the Coil switch set to Cancel, but I guess like JP said, it's the price we have to pay for the incredible sensitivity of the GPX 6000. Swinging towards where I had left off the day before, I encountered a few trash targets, including a 22 casing buried at nearly a foot deep; the initial target response was very clean and quite obvious. Continuing along, I got another deep sounding target, and after digging down around 6 inches, the signal was out of the hole. Pinpointing with the left edge of the coil is required when using the DD coil in EMI Cancel mode, since the coil becomes a pseudo monoloop, where the left side of the coil is now operating as an 8” x 14” elliptical mono, and there is no sensitivity at all on the right side of the coil. A quick sift of the material with the scoop brought a sweet little 0.65 gram gold nugget to light! After digging a few more trash targets, I finally arrived at the spot where I had left off the day before, and almost immediately, a sweet mellow target response from my Avantree Torus wireless speaker had me once again blasting into a bedrock crevice. The target was around 4 or 5 inches deep: a quarter-gram nugget. Just a few feet away, another signal in a bedrock crevice, this time a thin, 0.15 of a gram piece at about the same depth. Not bad for a few hours on an old patch with new technology; covered gas for the trip and then some. Stay tuned for day 3...

  9. Gotta get my RV ready for a trip to the beach, this month going to Emerald Isle for my annual "Wife's Birthday" trip. It was hot and humid this morning, the deer flies are nearing the end of their parasitic lifespan, so they were ravenous. Despite lots of bug spray they hit me over and over. The trick is to let 'em land and bite, they are reluctant to let go so you can kill them. Left quite a few in the dirt today. Unlike ticks, mosquitoes and chiggers, they don't leave an itchy welt. Went back to the hill for about 4 hours, it's not that big an area but I wanted to get one more dig in before spending the rest of the week doing chores. The hill is about 60 feet above the river, what is behind me is about the same size. There was a house here by old records. The evidence is brick and lots - lots - of nails and junk. Dug quite a bit of trash, some of it masking the good stuff. Didn't find much but it was surprising, due to the fact that I have been over this area a lot of times with the standard Equinox coil. Only dug 4 keepers. Silver plated spoon, 1930 wheat, 1936 dog tag and the biggest surprise, a gold plated mid 1800s to 1900s button (I think). Even the shank was plated, the back says "EXTRA RICH" and the company name. I should mention that it was a 12 in a pile of iron nails, the Coiltek 10x5 "sniffed" it out. I haven't found a button in a while so this made my day. It's the best gold plated button I have found. Next up: Beach Road Trip! πŸ˜€

  11. Based on the equipment I already own which I am completely happy with I'd spend $1 on a Lego metal detector to keep with the theme of the question and spend $7999 on buying gold nuggets πŸ™‚ That'd be more nuggets than any possible benefits of spending the money on another metal detector would ever find me in my life time!

  12. 'dogodog', keep at it and never give up hope. Site selection is the #1 key to success, but a close #2 are the following things: -> Be patient at all times. -> Use the best coil to handle the conditions. -> Work a site slowly and methodically. -> Covder a site well ... that means overlapping and scooting the coil in and around dense brush and debris. -> Usethe least amount if Discrimination you cantollerate. -> Remember, all visual TID is only a 'suggestion' or 'electronicly-generated' 'guess' of what made a beep ... recover all good and reasonably iffy Audio hits and take a look to know for sure. -> Pick the best detector you can afford for the types of sites and conditions you'll face, opt for the best coil for the task, then learn and master it well. I only have one 'bucket-luster' coin to find, but I wouldn't mind finding more of any early-era coin. I have been fortunate to have enjoyed this sport a long, long time and searched a number of very productive places, with 99% of those being "Out West" here in the USA. In over 56 years of very avid detecting, I have found a lot of older coins. Seated Liberty coins have outnumbered Barber coins about 30-35 to 1, Indian Head Cents used to be numerous, I would get about 5-7 'V' Nickles for every 3-4 Shield Nickels depending upon the location. Large cents, 2-Cent pieces, 'nickel-type' 3-Cent pieces, Half-Dimes and more. But in all this time, ONLY ONE Half-Cent, Flying Eagle Cent ... and ONLY ONE silver Trime. But I never give up trying, and neither should you. Monte

  16. Norvic/goldcatcher.... Thanks guys for the EMI and threshold info.... Today I moved into the other side of the canyon and wearing my Romeo slippers (no metal) and running lowest sense and sometimes higher a click or two I had little threshold crap and things were fairly stable today. When the treshold did go whackamo I'd turn down the sound and noticed damn near every time the very stable threshold would start to stray I'd hear a MF'ing plane overhead! I'd noticed this before but this is the first time I started looking for and listening to planes. Thought I was out in the middle of nowhere. One of my saying is "there's an idiot behind every bush nowdays" now I have to add "there's an idiot behind every cloud nowdays". Unless I get something substantial I'll probably quit the pics for awhile (?). Think everyone has a pretty good idea what the 6 does and how good it does it. That super sensitive sob will take some getting used to but on the flip side the benefits more than make up for that. Got in 4hrs today before the heat....biggest bit was .944g at 10-11" range and total for the 5 bits was 1.851gram..... PS....at the end of my hunt I'm headed towards the quad with the mini-monster, pick, and the 6. In my slippers I stumble on some scree and down I go. As I was going down I had enough geo-sense to sacrafice the pick and mini-monster taking a hard hit and kept the 6 from taking a hit. Get it...geo-sense...Oneguy cracked a funny, Oneguy cracked a funny.....enough of this!

  17. Day one... I headed to the hills this morning to beat the heat and log a few hours behind the control pod of Minelabs' latest offering, the exciting new GPX 6000. Hiking up and down the hills with this featherweight P.I. nugget detector is pure bliss after lugging the GPZ 7000 around for the past 6 years...has it been so long?! Armed with the 11-inch GPX mono coil, I targeted an old nugget patch that I had carefully gridded many times in the past with several detectors, including the GPX-5000, Gold Monster and GPZ 7000. With nearby power lines, operating at a Manual Sensitivity of 10 or Auto+ proved a bit too chattery and required excessive Noise Cancel delays that became rather irksome after awhile. Backing the Sensitivity to 7 smoothed things out considerably without any noticeable loss of performance, and if I got an iffy target response, a quick jump to 10 would provide a definitive yes or no. After digging a few trash targets, the first β€œnugget” that the GPX 6000 hit was a 0.04 of a gram surface screamer, and the next couple of nuggets were small and shallow; nothing surprising. But how did the Gold Monster miss these? Must not have got that little 5-inch Monster coil directly over them.πŸ€” It was the next 3 targets that really blew my mind, however... By late afternoon, the temps were soaring into the mid-90's, and despite a nice breeze, it was becoming a tad uncomfortable, and I was thinking about calling it a day. That was when the GPX 6000 sounded off with a sweet, mellow and deep sounding target response. A few scrapes with the pick exposed the underlying bedrock, and somewhere - in a crevice, no doubt - a golden treasure awaited to be uncovered...or so I hoped...could just as easily be a bit of square nail, a bullet or boot tack.πŸ˜’ Blasting a few inches into the bedrock with the pick got the target out - a nice little golden picker in the scoop. πŸ™‚ After backfilling the dig hole, just one swing of the detector revealed another soft, mellow hit a mere foot away. Same scenario: a small golden goody a few inches deep in a bedrock crevice. Then, about another 4 feet away, a faint response. Quickly jacking the Sensitivity from 7 to 10 brightened the signal a bit, so I began digging about 6 inches through a layer of gravels before hitting bedrock and a rather thick tree root. A little more pick work and pinpointing with the edge of the coil located the target in a crevice right next to the root. This one was deep; nearing the 12-inch mark, the target was finally out, and it was screaming off of the coil edge! A quick sift with the scoop uncovered a hefty 1.34 gram nugget. How the GPZ 7000 missed this beauty, I'll never know...it's a head scratcher.πŸ˜… Time to call it quits for the day on that high note, for sure! I'll be at it again tomorrow, this time with the GPX 14 DD coil in EMI Cancel Mode; should be able to run flat out in Auto+ Sensitivity with the threshold as smooth as glass.

  22. LOL, I tried going with just a screw driver for a day, but after running back to the car every few minutes for another tool, I decided that wasn't going to cut it. Then I went full assault pack, but that got me some funny looks, so I got the smallest pack I could find (6"x5") and crammed eveything into that. No weird looks since then. I just look like the eccentric old guy in the park with the weird waterbottle holder and funny looking walking stick! πŸ˜„

  23. Too bad we don't live closer because I'd provide you a shoulder to cry on..., and while you were occupied with that I'd relieve you of that silver 5-cent piece! I've yet to find any seated coin (nor any 3-cent pieces, nickel or silver). OK, I do feel bad for you and your friend because of the dates of your other finds. If you could have just added any of 1 thru 7 to that 1865 IHP you would have had a semi-key. And your friend's 1874 Shield was 5, 6, or 7 years too early for being one of the three key dates. Do I sound like someone who hasn't found even a silver Roosie in several weeks? πŸ˜ͺ

  28. Hi Everyone, Yes, I’m still around, but in Alaska doing last second preparations for departure. I just got a request from a vendor to ask people what they are looking for in a protective case for travel. Imagine a high end coin or gold prospecting detector that you want to take on a trip. What kind of case do you want? Stuff like hard shell or padded soft shell, size, accessories that need to be included (or not)? So design your perfect case, or show your own example you already have. Lots of us use gun cases or bow cases for example. This is your chance to have some input in the design process. My input is I do not use cases that look like they have valuable stuff inside. I do not like advertising my valuables to thieves. I go for non-descript, not something that screams β€œtake me.”

Although, have dug a Silver Kennedy half that some kid lost one time. About a half dozen pieces of Silver jewelry threw the years ,but a 158 coins this year and zero bling. Oh, yeah Wheaties arn't uncommon. It's just a nice field to hunt, stays mowed and hardly ever used.

  31. I loved those belts, used the web gear too. They use MOLLE now, possibly something even newer. The belt has a well padded Velcro - attached insert that makes it extremely comfortable and also serves to hold your tools in place if they just go around it rather than a MOLLE attachment in the loops. The price is what got me, they claim to be a Veteran owned company FWIW. $25 is cheap for a belt of that quality, most if not all of the reviews are glowing. 3 colors ! πŸ˜€ Sizing is important, I have 2 of them. One for when I'm wearing heavy clothes. Get the size closest to your belt, not the next one up. Each has 4" of leeway.

  34. My opinion is any of the above. Each machine will challenge you and on some days make life quite difficult. I wish I had the skill to use them to their true potential and push machines right to the limit. For me it’s more about learning, improvement in technique and the enjoyment of being out in the bush looking for that patch or piece that the ones who have gone there before have left behind. It’s about making the most out of an opportunity with the machine that’s in your hand.

  43. it was hard to pick which spot to go as we have fire closures going on right now. got to the patch at 5am. this is a well know area, club claim, and it has been pounded by a lot of people using every detector you can name. after a few minutes swinging it my first thoughts were where did all these new targets come from. i was getting used to the machine so it took about 2 hours to get on the first gold 1.1 grain. maybe an inch deep. next one .9 grain, nice signal. was 2 inches deep in tight bedrock. the 2.4 was found by my hunting buddy with the gm1000. at 10am i was soaked in sweat and hot. told my friend, take the 6 for a spin. he has been hunting less than a year and has never used a pi before. 5 minutes later he is calling me over. 3.4 grain at like 2 or 3 inches. still learning this detector as i have less then 4 hours on it but, i really like it. light weight. just the right amount of sensitivity. banging on the little bits with that 11 inch coil is amazing. deepest target was a little bit of wire @ 13 inches. one other thing. all the videos on this detector have it warbling really bad. i don't know if that is due to having the camera/phone on next to it or emi or what but mine was not that bad. i am very happy with the detector going to run over some new ground tomorrow, maybe some bigger bits and less trash on fresh ground. side note for Skookum. you and i worked the 2 pesos patch. we should get together for a hunt.

  47. Detectors are tools, and in the same way you dont want a crescent wrench to tighten a Phillips head screw, if you are tightening a bolt you dont want a screwdriver. VLFs are better choices for hard rock mine dumps, no question about it. On the other hand if I am detecting highly mineralized ground with deep gold, I am going to want a PI or the GPZ. No matter the work, you want to be using the right tool for the job. Here is some Nevada hard rock gold I detected with a VLF...

  50. Headed out at dark-thirty and got started at daylight for 5 hrs before the heat. Had a plan to stay on a road with my slippers on instead of my usual high top metal in boot work boots to see if the metal in the boots may have contributed to my terrible unstable threshold? Threshold acted better today but still goes whackamo but not as frequent....metal free boots will have to come soon. Todays 5 bits weighed a whopping .645g and as you can see the 6 gets the Monster sized tinys actually better and deeper than the Monster..no shit! I dug more of the tiniest wire bits today at greater depth that it still amazes me (and pisses me off)....anyways, very impressive on the tiniest stuff. Also tried the silent threshold but feel I need to hear the threshold for when the machine goes whackamo? I'll get it figured with more time....
