Last Trip for 2014

SDC 2300

January 02, 2015 08:00am

The grand total for the trip so far is now 23 bits for a total weight of 27 grams. Not too bad for a couple hours work. I decided it was time to return back to camp for more fluids and some- thing to eat. After the evening meal I was planning what was to happen in the early morning before it got too hot but the wind picked up and was blowing a gale and the salt was getting blown off the lake straight into camp which made it pretty uncomfortable, so it was time to pack up and think about heading home. By the time I had packed up camp it was 2200hrs so I moved away from the area found a sheltered spot and got some rest. There will be another day that I will return to that area and use the SDC2300.

In November a friend and me went to the nubian eastern desert. After six days we had nearly an half ounce of nice nuggets in our pocket. Found with a GPX 5000 and X-TERRA 705.

Success in Brazil

GPX 5000

December 05, 2014 08:00am

Brasil, Mato Grosso, Mr. SJ bought a Metal Detector GPX 5000 four months ago, and right after had a success story, and he is being “Garimpeiro” for 8 months. He bought the Detector GPX 5000 and went to look for gold where other people had already worked with a GP Extreme and a SD2200 and he found other nuggets of good size, the biggest size was of 1.937Kg found at 0.9m and also found nuggets of less size of close to 0.1Grams, in this day he was already working for 2 hours and he was working alone.

Dig Everything

GPX 5000

November 28, 2014 08:00am

We moved onto another area that had many dig marks, this time I couldn’t even find a junk target. I was just about to call it a day when I waved the 5000 over a real loud “raspy” sounding target, in amongst reasonably fresh diggings, but even though it sounded like junk, I dig everything. I scraped the top and expected that the target would be a large rusty piece of steel, but no, the signal was still in the now hard ground. Digging down another 10 to 12 cm and the ground was very hard and when I saw the compacted river wash my heart rate started to elevate. Na, it couldn’t be! The target was now setting of my PRO-FIND 25 Pinpointer and it was still buried under the almost rock hard wash. Finally after digging for what seemed an eternity, I felt something heavy in my scoop, then caught a glimpse of shiny yellow, It couldn’t be… Yep, there it was and it turned out to be a 3.7 Ounce nugget around 30cm deep. It was on its own and I would guess that many had walked over it and left it thinking it was Junk.

Cobra Nugget !

minelab metal detector finds cobra shape gold.jpg

I have had my Minelab 4500 for a little over a year now. I wanted to share a find I made three months ago on a site I have been working for over a year. I took out my news Sadie coil and went over some ground I have worked many times before. The first 30 minutes I got this nice mellow soft signal. I dug down 10 " and uncovered a gorgeous 16.2 hopper crystalline specimen. The best part of it was it has a cobra on top. The head is very distinct and appears to be curled on top. This nugget is not my largest, but I would say the most unique.

Best decision ever

GPX 5000 Gold Prospecting Detector (LHS)

After 4 months and many hours in the bush with garrets atx, I decided to let her go today! And picked up a gpx5000 I couldn't be happier. After watching all the atx videos out there I was convinced I was getting a machine that could near match the gpx. the best thing about having the atx is that I appreciate the gpx more so than someone just getting the best straight away. Did I find gold today ? No I didn't but I found confidence in a machine Smile I did have all these other things I wanted to say but it's been a long day .. and thought I'd share some thoughts.

minelab best metal detector finds gold pay for trip.jpg

But what you can’t put a price on was the fun we had finding those elusive little nugglets out in the warm sun of the Corner Country. Nor can you put a price on the incredible scenery that can be found all around Tibooburra.
Some of our favourite scenery can be seen while driving the back track off the Cameron’s Corner Road to Nuggety Gully through to Tunnel Hill, it is a photographers dream. Our three weeks in the Corner Country was extremely enjoyable and thanks to the SDC2300 we found enough gold to pay for our trip, what more could we ask for?

Minelab SDC 2300

SDC 2300

September 08, 2014 08:00am

I have recently purchased a Minelab SDC 2300 from Pilbara Prospecting Supplies and left for a short trip to the Pilbara.   

I am writing because I am so impressed with the machine and its performance.

Within minutes of tuning and using it, I found my first small nugget of gold. As I hadn’t been prospecting for approximately 8 years I was quite surprised and thought someone had missed a piece.  

To my amazement, I found another 8 small nuggets within another 30 minutes. Obviously others had missed this little patch. I moved onto an area that I knew had been well worked, even with the Minelab 5000 series. To my amazement, I again started picking up small pieces of gold.  I thought to myself, this is some machine.

The SDC and Me

SDC 2300

August 21, 2014 09:00am

If you’re looking for a prospecting machine that can go anywhere, ignore hot rocks and hot ground while sniffing out the smallest of nuggets, then look no further. The SDC lives up to the hype and then some. This machine will become a staple in any prospectors tool set. I’ve nicknamed named mine “Ole Blue, The Skunk Chaser” because I have yet to get “skunked” while using it.
