  1. Great story and pictures. I love seeing cactus in the desert. In Northern Nevada, cactus is rare and a nice sight to see, although its typically less than a foot tall. If there is a road, Chet will get you there. We have not encountered a road yet, that we had to turn around. See ya in the gold fields. Brian.
  2. I strongly suggest you adjust as many settings as possible, this is the best way to learn what the gpz is capable of. Start by dumbing down the machine, and then slowly working in the opposite direction with the settings until you feel you have the optimum settings for the ground beneath the coil. This will take some time and loads of patience, but you will become more efficient as time goes by. The hard part is over, you found gold, now you just need to get it all. Have fun. Brian.
  3. Nicely done Chet. I haven't been mining in months, hopefully soon. Save some gold for me:) Brian.
  4. Chuck, if I remember correctly, you were going to send a letter to Whites, have you done that and have you received a response? Brian.
  5. Scott, is the kid hunt still happening as posted? Thanks, Brian.
  6. Fantastic find, finding gold at Rye Patch in the heat is tough! Brian.
  7. Paul, please let me know if that is what you have, as I'm still interested. Thanks, Brian.
  8. Depending on the ground your detecting, while using the Detech DD, you may be able to switch the timing to either Normal or Sensitive Extra for increased sensitivity and depth and you should try it on the 14x9 evo as well for kicks. Good Luck, Brian.
  9. Hi All, do you have a Detech 15" Ultimate Spiral DD coil that you want to sell? I'm looking for one in good condition to use on my 5000. Please pm me if you have one to sell. Thank you, Brian.
  10. I do want to upgrade my Racer 2 for a machine I can take into the lakes and rivers, this may be the one. Most importantly, thank you Dilek for being a contributor and a voice for you company. It certainly means a lot to me. Brian.
  11. Ground noise WILL mask a target, I have seen it! That's why I have changed my settings so that I listen to a threshold, an almost smooth threshold, which means I use settings that allow for this style of detecting. When able to, I hunt in HY/Normal, turning down my sensitivity and volume so that I have an almost smooth threshold. A friend of mine uses max settings and no threshold and is very successful. It comes down to personal preference. If your detector is making you crazy, then are you in the right mind to find gold, probably not. Of all the tips, tricks and procedures, I believe the most important setting is to have confidence in yourself and your equipment. Brian.
  12. Have you ever tried the Coin/Relic mode Simon? I would think that in your mild soils, this timing would give you the biggest bang. Let us know if you try it out and your thoughts please. Brian.
  13. Steve, when you say no ground balance, does this mean you don't have to depress the green button and pump the coil, or have I misunderstood? Thanks, Brian.
