  1. Miserable bastards!!! so sorry for your loss. fred
  2. The 3030 will find gold under the right conditions...do you live in Tanzania? look through the archives, if you have never been nugget hunting I would not jump until I tried it. fred
  3. When I started trying to find nuggets with a detector about 1980, I needed a test nugget. So I glued a half gram bit to a nice white pice of river run quartz.... laid it down, gold. Side down, of course ...got distracted by something.." never did find that gold. I wonder if someone else did.... bird shot will work for the small test piece fred
  4. Will we ever know the rest of this story? fred
  5. Very informative post, Simon....you seem to getting on top of things very well! we should all. Suffer with mild soil...so 😞 fred
  6. Dd do handle hot ground better, but he doesn’t have hot ground! the advantage for him would have been under or near power lines using his Minelab in cancel.... I have no clue about the qed...and dd fred
  7. Well done! reminds of an Oz friend that found several film containers full of gold...he had forgotten about them. fred
  8. Probably works so well they aren’t talking! fred
  9. Thanks, that is a long time for a gravel parking lot. your detector if shipped would be double boxed...if you bought it local and brand new there should not be scratches at all. Go back to the dealer if local.. .if you got it on the net?.?? read the on line manual, do the factory reset. Do the noise cancel. Select park 1 . push the horse shoe button...this will detect very small stuff.".. or fiind a detecting club and ask for help good luck
  10. Too many variables to answer that question...one possible is iron near or some other target. You will learn with experience! nice dime fred
  11. Another problem is that things are not always lost where they are noticed missing.like Steve said...a careful visual search of the parking lot is a priority...before too many cars go over it. search the clothes and house too. how long has this been lost? fred
  12. Where you been, Paul? Wilma and Chris were missing you.... how many lost nuggets....klunker?
  13. They asked me to return the. Detector module and would ship a new one on receipt of the original.....I did and they did. all is well
  14. Pretty cool results...are any of the platinum bits big enough to see well? fred
  15. JW, won't you please come home??? You've been gone toooooo long! and I miss the pic's fred
  16. Many people think age and experience equals wisdom and skill.... it ain't necessarily so... I know this from years of practice.... fred
  17. SIMPLIFY, Simplify, simplify....HDT..... fred
  18. Looks like hobby type necklace....too me. nice stuff. fred
  19. I hope that travel trailer floats...sorry, just could not resist. Steve has a guide section on this forum. As for friendly, sharing miners...they may be rare as big nuggets. Hopefully there are some in the neighborhood. fred
  20. Happy days!!! my 800 and WM came home and everything works correctly and simply. I took it to a park and through the factory preset programs, all is well thank you Minelab, excellent service! fred
  21. I use Sony , very similar to those Philips...everywhere except the beach! fred
