3 Ounce nugget found at a depth of 2 feet with GPZ 7000

GPZ 7000

March 20, 2015 11:00am

Found last week on well worked ground with the GPZ 7000 by Gavin, a local prospector in Clermont, Australia at a depth of 2 feet.... weighed in at 3 ounces. 

"I was able to get this nugget with the GPZ 7000 because I was able to detect without as much powerline noise as the previous detectors. Thank you minelab!"

Paid with gold

GPZ 7000

Now back to that first signal I got the day before. So my brother-in-law asks me 4 days later if I can give him directions to where I hit rock, he wanted to take my sister and their 2 young kids out for a play, and he would take a jackhammer out in case there was something there. I had to work I got home about 7:30 at night and their not home. About 8:15 my sister comes over with her phone and says "watch this". They are down around 2 feet and have put the 4500 together and are sticking it in the hole and it's screaming off its nut. I sad where is it and she said "it's still there, we had to leave it and come home". So now I panic, grab the in-law and drive back out there. It took about 10 more minutes of jackhammering and out came this chunk of ugly rock that was making the signal. After dollying it up we got 2 more ounces.
So after 10 minutes detecting and 2 hours digging, I now had 7.5 ounces, more than enough for the new GPZ 7000. Gotta love it when a plan comes together.

My once in a lifetime find

CTX 3030

minelab-detector-finds-1861-coin.jpg

With the cold weather finally breaking I decided to find some treasure! On a permission hunt in Gainesville VA, I found my best find yet. My heart was racing at what I thought was a gold coin, upon further investigating it turned out to be something even better. I found a 1861 cival war dog tag belonging to soldier John Vanderpool. Found in Gainesville near the second battle of Manassas where he was injured in the line of duty. His brother also enlisted the same day as john. However his brother Simon Vanderpool became a deserter, eventually caught and reassigned to a different reg. Even more interesting, you can read a deposition from John explaining the death of his tent mate that got shot in the groin and bleed to death. Below is a little more info I was able to dig up.

At long last the snow and ice cleared away and off I went on my first hunt for the year. Within 40 minutes of detecting I hit a strong 12-46 at 7" and there in the hole was a 1745 8 reale. After some patient cleaning you can see the end result, and some have said, " not a bad start to the year"

Texas Ranch Ringer

Safari

minelab-detector-finds-100yr-old-ring-safari.jpg

I grabbed my Safari with newfound knowledge and experience, and re-attacked my backyard. I wasn't more than 20 feet from my back patio, and that lovely high pitched silver tone rang from my Safari. I was curious and immediately pinpointed the target. Low and behold, about 5 inches under the surface was this amazing peridot birthstone ring. My heart raced. I quickly sprinted inside to wash up my treasure and have a closer look at it under a magnifying glass. It was slightly bent as if it's owner had undergone some calamity, we do get quite a few tornadoes in this area, but it was beautiful nonetheless. It's an incredibly beautiful green, and pure silver. I could see the initials JCD on the back and 26, which I assume is 1926. I intend to seek out our historical society and find out who owned this property originally, but I'm so glad I had my Safari that day.
