  1. Hello family am new here n would like to know more about gold detectors i would like to purchase a Minelab Gpz 7000 gold detector so i would like some more details on the item please help
  2. I am fairly new to MD'ing. Mostly Myrtle Beach while on vacations. A little around home Clark County Ohio. I want to upgrade to something else from my DFX 300. Any suggestions that won't break the bank? Jim
  3. I had been detecting for over the 25 years with many good finds and good times. Went to many organized hunts, meetings and belonged to 2 clubs. Caught an autoimmune as well as a neck/head injury which has made me make some huge changes. Was a fishing guide for 22 years, gave that up, sold the boat, sold the truck, played in a band etc etc. Finally after 6 years the Drs all keep telling me "you need to get out and move around if only for a little while". I tried with my DFX 300 which was just bought prior to this, but it was to heavy to swing for me. Tried my regular DFX, the CZ20 with the belt
  4. Hello, I'm new to detecting but have been researching different gold prospecting techniques on and off for the last 7 years. I'm addicted to learning new things and felt it was time to stop lurking around here and join the fun. I live in the mountains of western North Carolina and am mostly interested in nugget hunting. This state was the biggest gold producer in the US until the California rush started. The gold around here is known for being very pretty with exceptionally high purity. I'm planning on buying my first detector this year, and hopefully it'll lead to some nice pics to share.
  5. Hello, everyone. My name’s Greg and I’m a metal detector in Catawba County NC. If anyone else is from the area I would love to meet up for a hunt. For your viewing pleasure, I’ve attached a nice little flat button I found yesterday at an early 1800s site I have permission on.
  6. Hello, I am Michael Vojnovich. I recently relocated to Rochester NY for work. I am looking to metal detect with someone or a group of people in this area as I have never been here before. My cell number is 262-914-3115 Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Mike
  7. Meet Shelby. As the newest member of our Customer Experience Team, Shelby has been with Kellyco for just over a year. She is a new detectorist that finds time to hunt in between raising a toddler and a new puppy. Shelby’s favorite find also comes from the Team’s participation in the annual Boy Scout hunt at Camp Lanoche in Paisley, Florida. As in Leilani’s Treasure Find story, the Kellyco team went out detecting to celebrate another successful year of helping the Scouts at their annual camp. Camp Lanoche was established in 1950 and has been used many times a year by a multitude of Boy Sc
  8. I am a retired police officer and took up detecting about 7 years ago. I started with the AT Pro and last summer switched to using a Minelab 600 and also a Simplex. I am looking forward to learning as I go along and also checking into the wealth of information on this site. Hope you all have a great day.
  9. Good morning from a currently misty part of the world . Waiting on my CTX 3030 to start indulging in my new hobby. Lucky to be in an area with plenty of beaches and Gympie gold fields 1 hour away. Into 4wd and camper trailing , so plenty of other areas on the list. Who says semi retirement has to be boring :-) Cheers Steveio
  10. Hello, New to the forum, just wanted to say hello before I started to ask questions here haha. Several years ago I bought a junker metal detector to test out the hobby, it died a couple years later now I'm back. Wondering how good Kellyco customer service is. Ordered a new MD from them and after 10 days of patiently waiting, I was sent what Is obviously a used machine. I paid for a new one so I'm a bit irritated about it. It's Sunday so I have to wait until tomorrow to call. I could have ordered one through Amazon, but thought I'd give them a try. Any issues with Kellyco before? Not
  11. Hi! I'm metal detecting for around 6 years now, started witch an ACE150 the got a Gold Bug Pro Clone. I'm from the south of Germany near lake constanze. Because metal detecting in germany is only fully legal in the state of bavaria (30km from me) i'm only metal detecting 4 or 5 times a year (and when i'm on holyday at the beach).
  12. Happy new year all. Hope we have a great year prospecting, mining and metal detecting. Thank you to all who contribute to this forum from around the world. Mike
  13. We average about a 100 inches a year so it is a bonus if we can go out this time of year .I have to do something about my goose egg silver count for year. How many of you have detectable ground today Good luck.
  14. My husband and I are Snowbirds for a few months near Yuma and looking for rules where we can metal detect - rules, tips and suggestions. Thanks Trudyoutdoors
  15. This is my third day home after spending the past 10 days in our Covid-19 Intensive care Unit. Touch and go for awhile but with oxygen for the next few weeks, the Doctors think a full recovery is in the future. Quite the wakeup call and despite all the mask wearing, sanitizing, and trying to stay home, my son, wife and myself all managed to get it within a day of each other. Wife & son have recovered and are doing fine. Let me tell you it's no joke. Take care, and I hope everyone has a better 2021. Tom
  16. Hi everyone, I'm Charlie from London. New to the prospecting game. Hoping to meet some awesome people on this forum! I was having a little trouble setting up my detector. I've got it lying flat on a table as the setup instructions suggest to do some initial testing. When in pinpoint mode it appears I am able to set it off with parts of my body. I don't have any metallic items on me. Is this normal? Is it possible for a metal detector to be set off by a person or is there something wrong with my detector? Cheers
  17. Been detecting since 1978 , back problems have slowed me down but still enjoy owning and dealing in used machines as a sideline . Current detectors include a Fisher 1265x , Minelab Explorer II , Nautilus DMC II , Nautilus Silver King and yet to be delivered Nokta Simplex and another Fisher 1266X . Enjoy Civil War relic hunting .
  18. Hello all. I'm brand new to metal detection and am interested in just finding interesting stuff and being outdoors. Also, I am an amateur astronomer and would like to find a few meteorites. This site looked interesting and secure so I joined.
  19. Hi all, I (we) are newly retired and setting up for life after covid.... We have been part time prospectors for many years, venturing ut when work permitted and sometimes when work did not permit. 90% of our time has been spent around the Kimberley and Pilbara regions, and whilst there are still patches to be found, the ground is hard on old limbs. We will be heading off in our new van in 21 hopefully to see what the rest of Australia has to offer. Hope to meet some of the Aussie prospectors out there in the never never, swap a few yarns, sip the odd whisky, and show a
  20. Glad to be aboard, will try to maintain the high level of content that I see from you all. All the best!
  21. Hello. I just got back into detecting after about a year away. I picked up a Nokta Makro Simplex system. I am looking forward to getting this system into the field and learning it. I have to say it seems to good to be true such a system with the positive reviews and features cost less than $350. We shall see though. Good to be here to see what others post.
  22. Won't be doing much detecting for the next few months here due to the ground being frozen 🙂 but hello and glad to be here. Not much gold prospecting around these parts, but we typically hit up the parks, fair grounds, freshwater beaches, and yards in the older neighborhoods instead. Nice to see an active detecting forum and looking forward to chatting with you all.
  23. U all, I'm 53 years old and from the northern part of Germany close to the dutch border. I start with metal detecting in 1981 with a C-Scope TR XXX detector. When i grow up the hobby stopped until 2018 but not the research for good prospection sites. Two years ago I bought a Minelab Equinox 800 and still discover the whole capabiltys of this sofisticated detector. I joined your forum with the aim to exchange and gain more expertise in advanced techniques and settings of my machine. I'm open minded and look forward to chat& share detection knowledge with you guys. regard
  24. So a big hello to everyone. I'm really new to all this, and have yet to do any detecting, I'm more into designing detectors than using them. I'm hoping to get feedback from the users here to help me refine my designs, I think I can develop some really useful and fun machines. I'm currently working on my first analog prototype, to be followed by a microprocessor controlled one. I'm integrating some features that I think are missing in most if not all the current designs, and am looking forward to hearing all your feedback, what you like, what you don't, what you can do without, etc. Don't know
