  1. I have a SDC 2300 and a GPX 5000 and a Gold Monster. Each one has unique capabilities that can be used for hunting deeper gold, smaller gold, hunting in tight brush, underwater, hot ground etc. The first time I used my SDC I slipped on a small rock ledge and fell 5 feet cutting and banging up my legs. As I fell I threw the detector away from me to avoid falling on it. It ended up 15 feet away bouncing and scraping over the bed rock. I had that sick feeling when I retrieved it, but turned it on and it never skipped a beat. Worked perfectly. Again I try to pick my machines and match them to terrain and the size of gold and depth I will be detecting. I do go back over an area with my other machines when possible.
  2. Detech 32in Concentric is now being shipped. $1299.00 Creek Detector Sales 724 446 9433 Thanks, Rege
  3. I don`t think its legal to sell or export meteorites from Australia. 🙁 You are encouraged to give them to the govt, I don`t know if they pay you for it.
  4. Look up Henning nickles, no silver in them and no large mint mark either. Wish I could find one.
  5. Just more proof that gold was dropped from a passing space ship
  6. Excavator is the way to go. Get a sheet of woven steel mesh with 1in or 1/2in holes, depending on the smallest fossil you want to get. Dump dirt on screen, pressure wash and pick out the fossils and arrowheads that you will get. Rake stones off, start over. You might make a screen that dumps to save time. Sounds like a great time!
  7. Stepping into this thread late, so don`t know if what I say has already been said. Take two machines, if one go es on the fritz you have a back up. If you get on a patch use the 2300 to pick up the small easy gold quickly, all gold is good, don`t waste your time looking for the Welcome Stranger. Then go back over patch with the 7000 to get the deeper stuff, learn to grid, (drag a chain) it will pay benefits and you will leave less gold. In Vic the lead shot will drive you crazy, in WA more trash free areas. OZx4 Rege
  8. Hi Paul, Thanks for identifying the coins. It must have been very exciting when you found them. Were they in any type of container or bag? Do you still have them?
  9. Hi Paul, Good to hear from you. Looks like you are in a good area with lots of history. I too would be interested in learning what those silver coins are. They look to be hammered and some are struck off center. Did you find all of them at the same time? ?
  10. Looks lik e a shot dispenser for a muzzle loading shot gun.......
  11. ? Congrats on your claim Peg! You deserve all the gold you get through your perseverance and persistence. There`s a big one under one of them rocks ?
  12. phrunt..........Thank you, that was an exceptional movie! I will call Qantas and cancel my flight.
  13. phrunt.......really would like to view the movie after seeing the trailer but says unavailable in US. Will keep searching for a copy or venue where I can watch without going to NZ, which I might have to do........
  14. The ceramic piece with the wire through it was common for house wiring in the early 1900`s. It was also called "Knob and Tube wiring", a hole was drilled through the beam and the ceramic tube pushed through, then the wire fed through. If the wire was to be on top/below of the beam a Knob insulator was used which consisted of a ceramic cylinder with a groove around it for the wire and a hole that a nail went through to fasten to the wood. ........Gee wish I had a picture
  15. PG.....nice way to tweak your detector and get the most out of each coil...Go for it!
  16. Wow Steve! Looks like a good time on the river. I would like to try to liberate some of that concentrate on my Miller table. It could be the ticket to getting the gold out. We`ll talk later......
  17. Whites has notified Dealers of a new VLF Gold Detector. Gold Master 24K with XGB XGB means extreme ground balance. More to follow, getting late.
  18. They make an excellent set up for the GPX. I personally use one and have sold several to other gold hunters here and in Australia.
  19. Anderson Carbon Shafts now makes them for the Gold Monster and the Equinox. These are premium quality shafts, extremely light and strong. You can swing all day with these. I am expecting a shipment soon, please PM me if interested. Rege
  20. Combining cot + air/foam mattress works the best for me, it`s easier to get out of a cot than getting off the ground from an air mattress. The air mattress/foam pad helps to insulate the cold that creeps up through the cot
  21. Thank you Gold Seeker 4000! If that happens it will be a great assistance to those lost in this claim/not claimed morass that we are currently in. It also will be good for current claim owners to better show their boundaries. If it does happen I will buy a smart phone and pay an instructor to help me use it.
  22. Maybe some of you already know about this and have the phone to support it. I have one of the flip phones that nobody wants to steal, so it really amazes me. On his phone he dials up google earth map and it instantly it brings up the boundaries, acreage and name & address of the owner. It would be fantastic to have the same ap for claims, showing owner and boundaries, no more accidental trespassing.
