  1. Not sure if anybody else has mentioned them but ‘Victorian gold hunters’ on YouTube are my regular favourite! Glen and Ant are a great combo and glen is really good at reading the old timers diggings👍
  2. Here’s a few crumbs from a day trip today for all the poor souls who own a 6000 like me… auto1 no threshold 11standard coil did the job and only 10 lead shot💪⚒️👨🏻‍🦯
  3. Great advice JP. I am guilty of focusing on those sweet shallow signals. Pesky buggers can get real frustrating after the first 20😃 thanks 👨🏻‍🦯⚒️👍
  4. Also my favourite at the moment is Victorian Gold Hunters on you tube. Bloody funny bloke and wealth of knowledge. Check them out
  5. Gold Hound your you tube vids are what what got me into detecting! Your vid’s portray the ultimate adventure for me. Thanks 👨🏻‍🦯⚒️💪👍
  6. Results from my day trip today. Standard coil auto 1 no threshold👨🏻‍🦯⚒️👍
  7. Some recent gold with the minelab standard 11 mono. If ground noise or emi is an issue I will generally run auto 1 no threshold. Give your ears and mind a break and let the detector work for you. Broke my pb twice that day👍
  8. Good video. Manual 1 sensitivity seems to work for this bloke. .
  9. Very interesting and thanks for the explanation 👍 yes I was running manual 1 and in difficult and still pinged 10 small bits for the day. The ground I detect is generally surfaced and shallow so I opted for a nice smooth stable threshold over depth. Funny my first 11 inch coil was faulty. Minelab sent me one back within the week. Great service. you will have yours paid off in no time 👍⚒️👨🏻‍🦯
  10. Hi I was running the 6000 with the 11 inch coil in sensitivity 1. 2 gold targets that I got that day had a really warbly sound on surface a sound I generally think is trash. Targets firmed up nice an inch or two down. had not heard that before in the auto or plus settings that I usually run. Gold was .5gm and round like shot. I know that the warbly sound is a good indicator of gold on the gpx 7000 from watching Chrissy on outback gold adventures. Has anybody else experienced a very warbly signal response from gold with the 6000. Thanks
  11. Perseverance is the key. I think I dug 30-40 shot all in a row before snagging a bit last weekend. Ended up having a good session with 9 or 10 bits from a 10m2 area. If there is lots of lead then the ground has not been detected all that effectively! Amazed at how smooth the DD coil runs. Like a different detector.👍👨🏻‍🦯
  12. My 11 mono coil was faulty out of the box. Struggled with it for a couple of trips (noisy/falling) before sending back to ML. They replaced the coil and the difference was night and day👍A couple more gold nugget posts from JP in this thread. Heading to a very soggy goldfield tomorrow 💪👨🏻‍🦯👍
  13. Great video Karelian! Thanks. What type of drone do you use? Video quality is great!
