GPZ 7000 - Field Success (USA)

GPZ 7000

GPZ 7000 - success story pictures-9grams.jpg

“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.”

Persistence Finally Paid Off!

minelab-metal-detector-finds-Draped Bust Combined.jpg

That site wasn't through producing either! About ten minutes after finding the large cent, I dug an 1806 draped bust half cent, which is a bucket list coin for me. Right as it was getting dark I also dug a fantastic Indian head penny that looks like it was taken straight from the mint in 1864 and dropped in that field. It's also an "L" variety, making it a semi-key date/variety worth somewhere between $250 and $350.

The moral of the story is that even a HEAVILY hunted site that's seen detectors for 30+ years can still yield fantastic finds if you're persistent and willing to work! I've hunted that site with two other brands of detector and found nothing but garbage. Thanks, Minelab!

Numerous finds with my Minelab X-TERRA 705 gold pack

X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack

January 04, 2015 08:00am

The Stories are all different for each pic. I got into metal detecting after learning about gold panning. I was working at harbor freight tools and decided to buy a cheap detector. Found a lot of change a 50cent piece, an 1892 barber dime. Then I decided I liked it so I bought my Minelab X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack. The pics shown are some stuff I've found. The first is a 10k gold plated wedding band I found in my neighbors yard 2 days after buying the Minelab. The next pic is stuff I Found in a campground field. I took my nieces and nephew out detecting that day they had a blast. My last picture is of a 50 cal bullet I believe that I found at the river.

Monster 1784 8 Reale


December 31, 2014 08:00am

At the bottom of the plug about 10 inches deep was this shiny bottom of a can….no it’s a continental dollar, no it’s a Spanish 8 Reale. It is a monster of a coin stuck to the bottom of the plug. Catching the remaining light of the setting sun, I was in disbelief as I read the date of 1784. I was thrilled as I raised it in the air and Mike from a distance could see this coin. Mike seemed to be as happy as me. He said this is one of his best days of detecting ever. I was glad he was having a great time.
