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.

Persistence pays off

GPZ 7000

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....

Got 8!

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.

3 Ounce nugget found at a depth of 2 feet with GPZ 7000

GPZ 7000

March 20, 2015 11:00am

Found last week on well worked ground with the GPZ 7000 by Gavin, a local prospector in Clermont, Australia at a depth of 2 feet.... weighed in at 3 ounces. 

"I was able to get this nugget with the GPZ 7000 because I was able to detect without as much powerline noise as the previous detectors. Thank you minelab!"

Gavin, Australia

Paid with gold

Now back to that first signal I got the day before. So my brother-in-law asks me 4 days later if I can give him directions to where I hit rock, he wanted to take my sister and their 2 young kids out for a play, and he would take a jackhammer out in case there was something there. I had to work I got home about 7:30 at night and their not home. About 8:15 my sister comes over with her phone and says "watch this". They are down around 2 feet and have put the 4500 together and are sticking it in the hole and it's screaming off its nut. I sad where is it and she said "it's still there, we had to leave it and come home". So now I panic, grab the in-law and drive back out there. It took about 10 more minutes of jackhammering and out came this chunk of ugly rock that was making the signal. After dollying it up we got 2 more ounces.
So after 10 minutes detecting and 2 hours digging, I now had 7.5 ounces, more than enough for the new GPZ 7000. Gotta love it when a plan comes together.

Second Day Hunt

GPZ 7000

My first day hunt I found two small nuggets learning my new GPZ. The second day hunt, armed with just a little bit more knowledge I hit another old spot and was rewarded with a fun day of detecting. The GPZ is the next generation from Minelab for us gold detectorist. It's early and I'm still in the learning curve...it works! Until the next hunt

Minelab GPZ 7000 - JP 1.jpg

20 gram flat piece at 23 inches measured, thought it was going to be many ounces. Had thunderstorms all about me and still got a clear signal even though there were a lot of lightening discharges.

Had Doubts But Not Any More

GPZ 7000

March 10, 2015 08:00am

This area has been hammered by us, with all the other machines, and large coils, this area has been camped on raked clean by others.
So for us, we now believe in this machine.

We would like to thank minelab , Bruce Candy and all the team for making this new detector
For us so that we can continue to enjoy this wonderful hobby!

These were the settings I used when we found the gold
