GPZ 7000 the best ever

GPZ 7000

July 13, 2015 09:00am

I bought a Minelab GPZ 7000 in March from George who owns Miners Den in Cairns where you can get an excellent service and George will always try to help you when you need it . I would like to share my first experiences, for me it is a formidable detector and so easy to use , my first trip in the goldfields was in March for 10 days to test it and I could find many very deep specimens on an area I have previously detect with a return of 5 ounces of gold , a good start. I am retired so I have plenty of time, I am not a professional it is only a hobby , so far I spent around 7 weeks in the Queensland goldfields and run the Minelab 7000 only on pre-set factory settings and get gold nearly every day . I camp in the bush then I go detecting with a motor bike, for me it is so easy to set up this detector as I carry it in custom made bag and so quick to start compare to some I own before. I go slow and low and I have some excellent results to my level, I balance it very often and it pays and if the threshold is a bit noisy as soon I find a target, even a faint signal I will pick it up , it will cover the threshold sometimes a bit noisy but you need to be very attentive . I talked on the field with a few people who were using a GPZ 7000 and most of them are happy and for the one who was not convince yet I believe regarding what he said to me , is expectations are a lot to high , first of course you have to be on the gold and listen very carefully , with this one you can find some tiny nuggets with a very loud signal , some very deep specimens with a very clear signal , the deepest I found was 80 cm deep with 100g of very shiny gold showing through . So now for me we have to stop ignoring any signal because this detector is so responsive that we will walk away from gold. I think personally that it is the one to buy when you can afford it but we have to remember one thing this detector do not make gold it only help us more than ever . So far I found nearly half a kg of gold for 7 weeks of fun, with some very exciting moments when you dig so deep.
I would like to tell you how I am happy to own the new GPZ 7000 so functional and easy to adjust the settings and how you are lucky to have Minelab dealer like George in Cairns.

holed seated dollar

CTX 3030

July 12, 2015 08:00am

I have been using the CTX 3030 since October of 2014. This past week on July the 4th, I found my first seated coin a 1876 seated dime. I have been metal detecting for 4 years and a seated coin had been high on my wish list. I did not have to wait long for my second. A week later I found my second seated coin that is by far the best find of my life. We went to a home located on an 1840's gristmill. The Mill has been hunted many times by several others over the years. As I worked along a sidewalk I got a nice 12-43 signal that I thought was going to be a dime. I opened the plug and brushed back some loose soil and the coins rim appeared. To my delight I realized it was much too thick to be a dime as I pulled it from the earth I was shocked and amazed to see a silver dollar emerge from the hole. An 1869 seated dollar. The CTX has been an absolute amazing tool. The more versed I become with the machine the more success I have.

1844 church and 1854 bank of upper Canada token


July 08, 2015 12:00am

I recently got a new permission at an historic 1844 church. It was horrible conditions with a lot of iron and really noisy. But the Safari pulled through.

Come home with a 1854 Bank of Upper Canada half penny token, and a 1911 "godless" dime, so known for lacking the DEI GRAT on the obverse.

Dispelling 4800 "Relic Hunter" myth

GPX 4800

July 02, 2015 08:00am

After a few junk targets got a nice "mellow" signal, a bit of a scrape and things started getting louder and I was beginning to think large nail, piece of iron or??. Small picks and big coils on a GPX can NOT be recommended .... once past the 12" mark the target was out and on the 3rd or 4th scoop full something heavy fell into my palm ...... a nice dirty nugget that when cleaned indicated 21.6 gms.
GPX 4800 and 14" Elite had combined to give me my best nugget to date AND dispelled forever the unwarranted "Relic Hunter" tag that's so common when people refer to the GPX4800.

1913 choir medal


June 30, 2015 11:00am

I walked down to a local park not hoping to get anything special. I had been there for about 2 hours and hadn't found anything but junk. I got a 44 signal, dug down and at eight inches and got this amazing choir medal from 1913! I couldn't find any information on it as there were only 120 made (it says on the back). It was made in Newcastle (England). I have been metal detecting since I was 12 (2 years now) and this is for sure my best find so far. You may go for hours without anything good but don't give up because you might just find something amazing....
