    Gonna Call It A Season.....

    Terrific photos and nice gold πŸ™‚
  3. If talking about gold prospecting only, I think the 7000 comes pretty close, but it doesn`t do it all, no discrimination and it wont get the small stuff like a 2300 can, but the 7000 gets good depth, amazing small stuff, and gold a GPX just cannot hear. A while ago, i got this speci at 6 or 7 inches and a 5000 can hear it at 2" max.

    A Photo For The Kiwis

    Yeh JW I think it`s ironstone staining. If I drop them in acid the`ll look clean but I`m not in any rush to do that. It`s funny you should mention that bit of trivia about the Endeavour. Only in the last week or so they have announced they think they have found the Endeavour on the bottom of Newport Harbour, Rhode Island https://www.sbs.com.au/news/captain-cook-s-hms-endeavour-may-have-been-found-in-us

    First Nugget With My New 5000

    Congratulations goldseeker getting your first gold with the 5000. You`re right, the 5000 is way hotter in fine gold than the 4000 was. The 4000 is a terrific detector on bigger gold but not in the hunt when it comes to the small stuff. Dave
  6. A mate of mine gave me a New Zealand 50 because I`ve been posting with American coins. I`ve not been out much in the last couple of weeks because of vehicle trouble but I got out a few times. These were all found on new ground away from diggings and I dug some sweet sounding targets but still nothing big. There is always tomorrow. This lot goes 1.58 grams πŸ™‚

    Went Back To New Spot

    That`s nice gold Chris, well done πŸ™‚
  8. Mate if you ever want to take your 19"coil on one of these trips you`ll have to build a little box trailer to tow it πŸ™‚ Terrific story and pictures JW and 3Β½ grams of gold . Well done

    Peg And Zed’s Big Adventure

    Peg that is terrific gold. I especially like that 3.9 grammer. It looks like it hasn`t traveled far. You could be near the mother lode with that one πŸ™‚

    A Β½ Ounce Of Small Stuff

    I found it one day when I was sailing on the good ship SS Ebay ☺️
  11. I`m still experimenting with cameras and this is a shot of the small stuff I have found over the last few months. I`m not looking for point oners but that`s what I`ve mainly been getting. I`ve dug plenty of deep holes, but unfortunately no deep gold, only deep rubbish. It`s a good thing this is just a hobby for me. πŸ™‚
  12. I was in the same boat as you Northeast. When I read "Come See The Elephant", my first thought was Rye Patch must be somewhere near this guy.

    Short Day Out

    A very nice piece Chris. πŸ™‚ Have you checked with a ohms meter if any of the bits of gold are connected?
  14. mate if you`ve got 250 bucks and can only get Minelab products grab the 8" commander. I thought it was a terrific coil. Dave
