  1. Hey Everyone; I just don't know what to do think about this video. I will be in the Philippines for several months when the travel ban is lifted. Taking my Nox with me. Found several youtube channels on metal detecting there and here is one that blows my mind. I know nada about metal detecting for gold, but based on my coin & relic experience, something about this video motivates me to post this for comments. From the user's coil control, depth of the nuggets, soil conditions....I pray it could be this easy. Watch this and please give me your thoughts.
  2. First time post here. I purchased a new Keene 6” dredge last year and got the 4gal reserve air tank. I’m thinking that this season my partner and I will both be in the water. One as a support rock mover and the other dredging. Last year we only ran one diver. If we add another airline we need to get a bigger reserve tank and that goes to the Keene 9gal. Anyone have experience with running two divers and is the 9gal mandatory? Can you run two small tanks if you split it right out of the compressor? Can I just have a stainless 9gal tank made locally without paying the Keene premium? here is a link to our channel and what we are all about. https://youtube.com/channel/UCoPsZnjywJ9hQjJ9r283w5g
  3. I've seen some crazy marketing videos for detectors over the years, it seems no brand is immune to it, their marketing people sometimes make videos that perhaps appeal to people new to detecting more than seasoned detector users. One that took me by surprise today was a new Minelab marketing video for the GPX 6000 that's doing the rounds on Facebook. In this video a Detect-spurt is using the GPX 6000 saying how great it is, he then finds what he describes as a faint target, a few scrapes of the dusty top soil and he's moved the target so he runs the coil over it, describing it now as a screaming target, his coil at this point is virtually touching the nugget by the looks of it. He's then down there using his hands to sort out the target from the dirt over the coil, and recovers and shows his piece of gold, then goes onto say that's what it's all about, coming back to ground that's been hammered and finding nuggets like that and holds up his half gram to a gram size nugget that he found virtually on the surface. With a detector capable of hitting absolutely tiny targets surely he'd be carrying a scoop to make recovery easier, but no, he's not. I'm not saying it's this guys fault, he's likely doing what the marketing people asked of him. I doubt there is a gold capable detector on the market that'd miss that nugget so I just don't see how that is hammered ground, most coin detectors would likely hit it. I'm puzzled to understand who their target market is with videos like this? It's certainly not people who currently detect for nuggets, so are they trying to bring in new customers that know nothing about detecting by selling them an $8000 AUD detector for their first detector? I don't know much about these new Detexpert's, but I prefer the good old fashioned educational marketing videos like the ones Nenad, JP and others used to do, that are meaningful to people who detect. Steve recently did Garrett 24k videos for their marketing, these were meaningful useful videos for people considering buying a 24k. I've never been much of a fan of marketing, but it seems like its on a downhill slope. The GPX 6000 is an awesome detector, it's a shame the marketing videos aren't showing what it's really capable of. I wish marketing people were also detector users so they'd be better at knowing how to market detectors to detector users. And to cleanse yourself from watching that terrible video, he's a better one from Nenad/Phasetech showing the GPX 6000 in a better way.
  4. I’d had keep Aaron’s videos on the Tarsacci that he had posted on this forum for everyone to view but now they say that the video is private . I don’t understand how it could have been posted on here and it shows different ones replying to it but video is gone now.. Aaron had made some great videos and everyone of them were all helpful. He was the only Tarsacci dealer that I know of that posted on here and had his own Tarsacci forum. We do have now Steve from Steve’s Rods came a dealer for the Tarsacci in December. Just maybe he will chime in sometime. Chuck
  5. I've lost count of the number of detecting videos I've watched where the user is cranking up the detectors sensitivity to very erratic levels. And in some of the testing videos, they are leaving multiple detectors on at the same time and they are all chattering away like crazy. Sure there are times where running your detector hot can be an advantage, but I can't help but think that when a person who's just thinking about taking up metal detecting, is lurking on YouTube and comes across video after video where the detectors are chatting away like crazy that they just get put off. I've even had the odd comment or two on some of my gold detecting videos, where to me the threshold was humming away beautifully, as if it was one with nature 😇 and I'll get a comment along the lines of...."nice one, but how do you deal with that annoying noise?". If that's what they are thinking after hearing a soft smooth hum, what would they think when they come across one of the detecting videos that sound like C-3PO after a case of Red Bull!??
  6. Yuba River Crevice Detecting for Gold Nuggets Me and Gary head back to Mother Yuba in search of Gold Nuggets and are joined by Tim from Blue lead Gold Productions. Let's Find some Gold on Mother Yuba !!! We are armed with the Minelab SDC 2300 and the White's Gold Master V-Sat that gives us both a Pulse Induction detector and a VLF detector. While me and Gary clear the boulders off Bedrock to detect Tim gets right to Sluicing with his Angus MacKirk Sluice box. The Yuba is known for it's small Gold so he should do pretty good !!! Moving those Boulders is hard work but that's what needs to happen to expose the Bedrock Crevices and get those Nuggets in our pockets !!! Yuba River Crevice Detecting for Gold Nuggets SG 047
  7. Hydraulic Pit Nugget Hunting Me and Gary ( Two Toes )head deep into the Sierra's in search of those elusive Gold Nuggets the Old timers missed. Yes I include Gary in with the Old Timers as he has Detected this spot before. Nugget Hunting in a Hydraulic pit isn't the easiest thing to do but it's one of the funnest and most rewarding ways of finding Gold. Watch as we pull those Gold Nuggets the old timers missed over a hundred years ago out of the ground !!!!! Gary finds a old Lead soldered painted Can is there Gold inside like the last one he found ? what did the Old timers us it for ? I find the missing Conglomerate piece from our last trip here lets see if it has Gold in it !!! Gary finds a Old Coin out in the pit . Plus Many many old square Nails !!!!! Thanks for watching I hope you enjoyed the adventure we sure had fun finding all the cool stuff and wondering what and how they used it. SG 052
  8. Bedrock detecting for Placer Gold Nuggets Me and Gary @Two Toes and Hugo head to the Hills in search of Gold Nuggets along the creek. Both Gary and Hugo are armed with there Minelab SDC 2300's and I'm using Gary's White's TDI on this trip. We dig up plenty of targets some good and some not so much. SG 049
  9. This guy just does wonderful videos. I cant help but learn whenever I watch. Clear and concise delivery every time... and he seems a likable guy as well. I was wishing he was one of my teachers when I was a kid... I woulda got more A's for sure lol So if I were giving out Oscars Gary would get Best XP Teacher of the year... strick
  10. Who has seen the videos of "Legend of Croc Gold" done in Bougainville Papua New Guinea and how did you get to see it (what links have you got to see it) I spent time there from Feb 1973 to Sep 1979 when I was young and fearless what a great and rewarding time it was for my family and self.
  11. Absolutely fantastic actually! I did a lot of filming. Will have a video posted within the next week. Cheers!
  12. I've found some movies featuring our great way of life.. some take the piss, some are downright porn and others are real tear jerkers.. all are cinematography at its finest.. Enjoy! 😁
  13. I started doing metal detecting videos a long time ago now, and I always wanted to make them informative, not too serious, but most of all real. Along the way there was some very "real" i.e. embarrassing moments, which unfortunately in the early days a lot of that footage just got binned. At some point I just laughed and started saving some of it. So I've done a compilation of the disappointing trash digs, bloopers and just plain bad camera work.
  14. Hello All, I have a lot of video footage and pictures from earlier this season, mostly around the Summer time. I'm just getting some free time to get some of the stuff uploaded and posted. I figured this would be a nice nugget to post and see right before the Thanksgiving weekend. This piece was found under about a foot of hardpack, caliche gravels. This particular gold nuggets, as seen in the video was wedged in a bedrock crack/crevice. Just makes you think how many years (hundreds, thousands?) this piece has been hiding there. The nugget was difficult to remove from hand tools as we didn't want to damage the piece not knowing the actual size or shape. We ended up using a Hammer Drill with a chisel bit to extract the gold nugget. The nugget ended up weighing right at 1/4 ounce solid. We also found another smaller one, about 1/2 Gram in the same crack prior to this piece. I dug the first smaller one out, but knew it was way too loud of a signal on the GPZ 7000 for it to be that small nugget. Low and behold, we scanned over the spot again and the signal was pretty much just as load as originally. Tool used were the Minelab GPZ 7000, Minelab GPX 6000, Garrett AT Pinpointer, hand tools, picks and the Hammer Drill. Here is a short video below of the gold nugget find and extraction. Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving. Thanks God we are able to enjoy such a wonderful hobby searching for gold. P.S. If you enjoy these video, Subscribe to our Nuggethunting channel to follow us.

  15. Hello All, Here is a short video of a very nice crack/crevice we found earlier this year during the Summer Monsoons. Prior to this find, we were just weekend warriors placering various areas and metal detecting for nuggets finding a small handful of nuggets per day. We were not finding anything to really write home about, just the common US nuggets from about a quarter gram and up to 3-4 grams. Working one of these dry creeks, we were hitting a few nuggets in the cracks, but found one we decided to chase down deeper. Normally we don't do this, as digging down several feet or more to bedrock can be a lot of work, especially if you don't recover anything. We had a wild hair, so we decided to do so and this spot paid off very well. As you can see in the video below, the crack started off with two amazing gold nuggets, one was 2.2 ounces solid (just a flat lump) and the other was 1.01 ounces. The gold nuggets were almost side by side in the same crevice as shown. We ended up finding 3-4 smaller gram sized nuggets in the same crevice, but the bedrock popped right up and the gold just disappeared. It was a great moral boost for the Summer season, as it's normally pretty hot and nasty during the Summer Monsoons in the Southwestern US. The tools we normally use are shovels, metal rake, crevice tools, metal detector(s) and pinpointer. We were using the Minelab GPZ 7000 with the new Nugget Finder Z Search 12" coil in this video. The pinpointer we typically use is the Garrett AT Pinpointer (Orange one). Hope you all enjoy the video. If you would like to follow us on Youtube, make sure you "Subscribe" to our channel to see all the new videos. Wishing you all a Happy upcoming Thanksgiving and a wonderful prospecting season. Hope you all have some lunkers under your coils this season! Rob
  16. The Fisher Gold Bug 2 has been around for decades and is well known as one of the most sensitive metal detectors on the market. It has been the gold nugget detector of choice for many over the years. There really has never been a Gold Bug 3 - though some have asked for it. Fisher has now updated the user interface of the GB2. However the features and the guts of the detector remain the same but the user will now have an easier time of operating the machine. It is still a manual ground balance machine, but I think its a good step forward toward making it easier to use. Don't ask me why all Fisher gold oriented detectors are called the Gold Bug. I have no idea. These new versions of the GB 2 are supposed to be available to dealers now. If you have any questions on it, I'll try and answer as best as I can. Anyway, I recently had one in the field and got to try it out. I did a video on it if you are interested in learning more. You can see the video at:
  17. Out for the first time in a couple weeks, Water was calm but up and it was good to get wet! After the big flood tides a week ago It was interesting to see the result. Not great but was able to score a couple keepers. One 14k Cameo ring and 4 Silvers.
  18. If any of my fellow "pee sitting down'ers" are looking for a GREAT Youtuber to watch, this gal is incredible, her pin pointing and target acquisition is mind blowing (demonstrated better in some of her earlier videos)... she's a star.. check her out.. (and anyone that swings a NF Z Search and dual speaker setup is golden in my book). Jen
  19. My first time out in a month, a lot has happened and now I am back to being a fulltime pirate. Water was was warm..70F with the 3mm wetsuit but the winds were up in the Chesapeake Bay this weekend............ Air temps were 54F so the wind chill was bad. Four hours hunt time, 7 Silver Washington's, 1 Mercury dime. One 7.49 gram 10k gold Class ring. Silver count is fairly good this year considering it's been a real down year.. (153) Next trip out will be with the drysuit.. getting to old for the cold.
  20. When I listened to the song the first time I really really liked it. (and still like) But today I saw the official Music Video and now I really like it more, depending to the scene with detectorist. 👀 👍😂 What do you think??
  21. I watched a couple of nice relic hunt videos last evening on Larry Hogston"s channel. It did well on some deep bullets in some bad ground.
  22. There is just something I like about this video in addition to some things I don't. I do think it is worth a watch in this new world of small gold.
  23. Hey Guys, Been getting a lot of questions on this method of digging, raking and metal detecting. Some have asked if you can do it anywhere and the answer would be Yes, but you might not find anything. I normally only use this method when we have found some nuggets concentrated in a small area, normally in a dry wash bottom. We have dug out nugget patches on the sides of the hills and benches also, but normally when mother nature does the work for you in the washes, you could have better luck in the right spots. We normally use two metal detectors, one for depth due to pockets and deeper crevices and a very sensitive detector like a VLF or now the GPX 6000. In our case we normally use the following tools - Minelab GPZ 7000 with the Nugget Finder Z Search coil 12" Minelab GPX 6000 Metal Detector with the 11" Mono coil Garrett AT Pinpointer (find this one to be the most sensitive to small gold) A couple of good digging picks, we use Apex and Doc's pick with super magnets Large metal rake with metal handle, any other rake is junk and will break quickly Plastic Scoops for recovery Small crevices tools like screwdrivers Plastic straw or narrow hose to blow out cracks/crevices Battery Powered Hammer Drill with Chisel Bit Also, whatever PPE, but we recommend eye glasses, good gloves and even hearing protection if you are using the hammer drill a bunch Hope you all enjoy. Keep in mind, this method has been using since the beginning of placer mining. It's not something we came up with, we just customized it with more modern day tools and technology to make it profitable in some areas to recover more gold. You can also add a good Drywasher and Vac-Pac to the mix if you want to work the gravels for smaller gold. In some areas you might be tossing out ounces of small gold you can't even see.
