  1. Congratulations on the gold, where there is some, there is more! The desert is sure pretty in the spring. Thanks for sharing. Brian.
  2. Wes, do you have the ability to make them even wider at the hoe end, say 7"? I found having a large hoe works great in Nevada. Thanks, Brian.
  3. Nice chunks! Hope your luck continues in Australia.
  4. Nicely done JW. When do we get to see a picture of Simon's big nugget?
  5. Do you need it? If so, make sure you test it and make sure the battery will hold a charge if its original. My first Minelab was the Extreme, great machine. $600 is a fair price. Brian.
  6. Ok Sourdough, I didn't write down the GPS coordinates but I know I was in the Nevada desert as I remember seeing sage brush😊 The big one weighs 5.9 dwt and was down 11", wasn't a screamer as I was running very conservative settings but an obvious target through the smooth threshold. Brian.
  7. Phrunt, with the hot settings you were using on the 4500 and the Evo coil, im surprised you were unable to hear some of those targets. Can you go hotter, perhaps another timing? I would imagine with your mild ground you are a coil scrubber, i know i am :) The power of the 7000 and these new X coils are really amazing. Beautiful country you live in. Brian.
  8. I agree, the Volume on the 7000 can do wonders to the response of a target, however, for clarification, there is no Target Volume adjustment on the 7000, only the GPX has Target Volume. The 7000 has Volume and Volume Limit. Keep finding those lobster nuggets :) Brian.
  9. The gold is fantastic, but the boulder opal is absolutely beautiful. I would be interested in a smaller piece :) Thanks for sharing, Brian.
  10. Jin, it sounds like you have used conservative and hot settings on the GPZ with the same results. I think it may be time to scrap off the top 6 inches or more and recheck to see if there are any nuggets at depth. Brian.
  11. Hi afreakofnature, im in no way doubting your GPZ skills, but we have to start somewhere :) Did you verify that the GPS feature is in fact turned on? Its located in the settings menu, then click on the satellite and make sure it has either a check mark or check mark with a plus. I haven't had this issue, but hopefully its a simple fix. Brian.
  12. What a great video Gerry, lots of useful information, thanks for taking the time to create and share. Makes me wanna get out and find some gold. Brian.
  13. I initially thought Minelab would be introducing a new detector; however, based on the article it doesn't appear to be, as of now. Thanks for sharing. Brian.
  14. Selling my Makro Racer 2, as I have several detectors that I can’t swing all at once and it would be a shame for this machine to sit in a closet. As the original owner I can testify this machine has been well cared for and never used in or around water, although it can and apparently does quite well in wet sand. Some of the features and benefits of this detector are, Notch Filter, Iron Audio, Tone Break, iSAT, advanced discrimination ability and Deep mode. There are minor scratches/scuffing on the shaft, coil and housing, but the detector works just as good as if it were brand new. The screen has absolutely no visible scratches and is easy to see in any light. I’m asking $400.00 which includes the 5” DD coil and USPS shipping to the lower 48, USA only or a local pickup. Please pm me if you’re interested or would like to make an offer. I will ship after payment has been received (cash) or cleared (check). Thank you, Brian.
  15. Selling my Whites GMT “Goldmaster”, as I have several detectors that I can’t swing all at once and it would be a shame for this machine to sit in a closet. As the original owner I can testify this machine has been well cared for and never used in or around water, although it does have a waterproof search coil. The operating frequency is 48 KHz, which is ideal for finding gold in harsh ground. There are minor scratches/scuffing on the control box stickers, shaft and coil, but the detector and coil work just as good as if it were brand new. I’m asking $450.00 which includes the careful packing and USPS shipping to the lower 48, USA only, or a local pickup. Please pm me if you’re interested or would like to make an offer. I will ship after payment has been received(cash) or cleared (check). Thank you, Brian.
