“I was finding gold right and left as if this location had never seen detector before.”

“I was having a ‘Eureka Moment’, the whole experience was mind blowing. The GPZ 7000 was working some serious electronic magic. I have not found that many large chunks of gold that fast in very many years–1.6 ounces of gold in less than three hours! The GPZ was able to detect fine specimen gold at depths far exceeding what one of the best hot VLF detectors could attain in this soil.”

Successful day in Adelaide Goldfields

SDC 2300

February 08, 2015 08:00am

Had a lovely half day detecting in the Adelaide Goldfields today. In particular the Gumeracha Goldfields. Went to a spot I haven't detected before, and concentrated on areas just below a reef. There was quite a lot of bird lead shot. On the second or third signal, out popped this lovely 1.3 gram solid gold iron stone specimen. My second largest for this goldfield. Thanks again Minelab for creating such a beautiful machine in the SDC 2300. Have now found over 5 nuggets in South Australia and over 50 in Victoria.

133.9 Gram Nugget Found

GPX 5000

January 24, 2015 09:00am

I have been detecting for between 7-8 years now and I'm only the age of 16. Me and my father were working the banks and gullies running into a big creek in Far North Queensland Australia when I luckily uncovered this 133.9/4.79 Ounce gold nugget. It was just washing out from a layer of wash into a gully when I happened to stumble onto it. It was roughly 7 inches deep and gave off an enormous signal.

Best outing for some time

Best outing for some time.......Enjoy the read.
Where do I begin!

Let’s start with the 1st day- arrangements were made for two mates and I to catch up for some time way or as Jules called it  " Blokes time out" we all had many hours of driving each to get to the destination that none of us had been back to since the 4000 days, many years on we have GPX5000's now.

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.
