My First Find

GPX 5000

August 19, 2015 08:00am

Have just found my first gold nuggets, on my second trip away with my Club, we set off for a 15 day detecting trip, to Wedderburn, Inglewood and the last 7 days at Kingower.
Wasn't too happy after 13 days of digging every target, with plenty of the usual, and even an old rusty rabbit trap, however had to get the positive cap back on and headed out again.
The last hour of a long day up came a little 0.2 g nugget, then i stepped onto an old digging heaps and a signal, 6/8" and then 10" and realised then it was back into the wall futher, Out came a 1.6 G.
Out to the same spot next moning and first 2 signals up came another 2 and totalled 2.5 g for my first finds.
Would like to thank Bernie Cooper and Greame Fuge for their assistance and advice for my second trip with the club, and the opportunity to travel with these people, Thhanks also to Minelab for this opportunity and my new found hobby at 67, recommend it!

My biggest nugget.

GPZ 7000

August 06, 2015 08:00am

 Finally it was in my hand and oh boy how rusty it looked, this flat piece of metal. I gave it a good wash and it looked like gold now but I still wasn’t convinced. Another wash and it now looked like a really good nugget of about 13 or 14 grams. I’ve never found a nugget over 13 grams and this looked like it might go half an ounce if I was lucky.

It gave me quite a surprise when I weighed it. 30.9 grams all up. It has some ironstone and a very small amount of quartz in it and after soaking in an acid bath for 2 days the final tally was 28.8 grams of beautiful shiny gold.

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.

GPZ 7000 Harvest

Eventually found 3 grams of gold at a depth of nearly 50 centimetres. My partner said there was no longer any gold left, but the GPZ 7000 certainly found it. Haha, thank you for my GPZ 7000, let me have a nice day, harvest a lot.

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.

GPZ 7000 gives me my first nugget

GPZ 7000

June 24, 2015 08:00am

That all changed last weekend. I had been detecting all day, trying a few different areas I had selected all to no avail. I set off to my final spot only to find a fallen tree over the forestry road. Not having a 4WD, I decided to try a spot I had seen on my drive in. It was almost time for me to leave as the sun was getting low but as usual I just had to give it one more go. I had only been in the spot about 10 minutes when a signal nearly blew my headphones off. I figured it was probably trash but I would have a look anyway. I had only dug down about 10cm and the 7000 was screaming. I got down all ready to remove a piece of iron when low and behold there was a yellow object looking up at me. My first though was it had to be a bit of gold foil. That soon changed when I picked it up! Gold! I finally had gold! It weighed in at 15.55 grams. Not bad for my first piece.
God I love my Zed!

minelab gold detector gpz finds gold.jpg

My latest finds in deep ground with GPX 7000, running General, sensitivity 15 & difficult. The ground has been done over with 4500 & 5000. You need to go really slow when looking for the deep stuff and dig the faintest signals, the biggest one sounded like ground noise at the start. GET A 7000.

The Power of Zed on Meteorites

GPZ 7000

May 14, 2015 08:00am
minelab gold detector gpz finds meteorites.jpg

It did not take long before I had set myself a new record for iron finds. What was really amazing was finding the smalls. I don't have a scale small enough to measure the weight of 80% of them. I know I ended up with 25 irons that weigh a total of 4.1 grams. The largest one at the top of the circle weighs .8 grams.

While diligently searching for several hours for the irons I was further rewarded with two much larger meteorites which are not normally found in this area. One find is 46.7 grams and the other is 114.4 grams.

18oz Golden Aussie Day

GPZ 7000

April 20, 2015 08:00am
minelab gpz gold detector finds gold cover map of australia.jpg

I stumbled on a patch picking up 12 solid nuggets ranging from 8g to 14g. As the sun was disappearing and a massive storm was approaching I could not pick them up fast enough as every step was a solid target. The lighting and rain set on by 6pm and forced me back to camp. 3 ounces in such a little time and knowing there was more was killing me. 65mm of rain that night and 80km wind gusts at one stage I thought I was have to pack camp up and get out otherwise I could be stuck for a week or 2. By 3am rain stopped and stars were out. 430am jumped on the quad and straight back into picking gold up. Total 18oz Golden Aussie Day.
