minelab super gold detector gpz 7000 finds gold in victoria aus.jpg

I have just returned from 2 days in the triangle and instead of the usual couple of grams of gold I came back with 3 beautiful specimens with a combined weight of over 25 grams.  They were found in a heavily detected area, in fact over the 2 days I frequently bumped into other detectors working the same patch, apparently without success.

One nugget in particular was right in the tree roots and was found whilst I was experimenting with normal soil setting which is far more sensitive but does pick up a lot of ground noise. Each time I detected a target I would switch to difficult soil setting to try and weed out what was a real target and what was ground noise. I swung the coil against a tree and got a clear signal and to my excitement when I switched back to difficult soil setting I got a faint wavering of the threshold that became louder as I dug.  It was so satisfying to see the 8 gram nugget sitting in my scoop, my persistence and experimenting with settings had paid off.

For me the goldfields really are re-opened with the release of the GPX 7000 which i now believe is a huge leap forward in technology....

minelab metal detector finds saxon treasure.jpg

Another great find, don't get me wrong I am out detecting often, but you also need to be armed with a good detector as it has proven its self-time and time again,

This was the first Saxon brooch I found and it’s my best up to now of a few,

E-TRAC finds Viking ring

minelab metal detector finds Viking gold ring 2.jpg

i carried on and thought what a good day i am having 10 minutes later a lovely sharp signal, (i only use two tone ferrous) i was detecting soft plough at the time, i put the spade into the ground and moved the soil out, after passing the soil over the coil it was in my hand, i opened my hand and could not believe my eyes, it’s only a very small ring, probably made for a young child, but another rare find i am very proud of.

minelab ctx detector finds spanish reale coin.jpg

I picked up in my hand, a completely encapsulated coin with only the shiny edges exposed. I knew from the location and the items previously found at the location it was going to be old. So 1st thing, I made sure not to rub it at all. I poured some water from my water bottle over the coin in my hand to reveal this beautiful 1773 Spanish One Real.

Just ten minutes later I dug a King George I Half Cent!

X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack

March 30, 2015 08:00am

after following the instructions I noticed that the field was quite iron infested-that's why there was no foot prints so played with the controls again and after a while got a signal which sounded a bit like iron but with not so deep so I decided to dig it I could not believe it the smallest cut quarter I have seen and my first one too! then came a tiny buckle of 1300-1600 which gave a cracking signal, then within 20 minutes a hammered of one of the Edwards-the detector seemed to sniff out these and ignore the iron-this detector seems to be better than my old one. I cannot sing the praises of the 705 any higher it is a fantastic detector and will recommend it to any serious detectorist looking for a new machine.

Lifelong dream find

GPX 5000

March 30, 2015 08:00am

When I checked the hole I still has the same signal and it sounded great. When I finally removed more dirt (down to about 10 inches) this gray looking coin was looking at me straight in the face. I jumped thinking it was a token or even better, a seated half dollar. Nope!!! None of the above, but instead turned out to be the most incredible find of my life. A union civil war soldiers pewter ID disc in awesome condition. The soldier's history was unimaginable for an ID disc, which included the 7 days war, Antietam, Bull Run and Fredricksburg. I am still on cloud 9 a weeks later. My most precious find, Thank you Minelabs, your detectors ROCK!!!!!!!!

Got 8!

GPZ 7000

March 27, 2015 04:00pm

I am on a roll.  Went out yesterday.  Got 8!!! Found 2 nuggets in the gully Miguel and I worked, but up on the side, then I found this new gully close by that looked untouched.  I got 6 more out of that gully with the crowning achievement being the last nugget that was 1.2 pennyweight at a depth of around 18 inches.  CRAZY!  It is the big sliver of gold in the picture and you can see the depth of the hole, with my coil in it.
