Just started my CTX3030 starts singing a sweet song: 18K & 18 grams! And a little further the chorus of the song even more acute: a silver coin, 1 Franc 1886 Leopold II Koning.

I think I have not finished to spend my free time on the waterfront of this canal!

I got an iffy signal but decided I was going to dig it anyway as I recall a previous signal on a previous dig I had a similar signal and turned out to be a very nice hammered so I dug this signal usually I am filming but with it being iffy decided not too then I found my target and was stunned to see what a beautiful coin I had found didn't know what it was but I turned my camera on and filmed it a little, I decided to take a picture of it and post it on Facebook for identification it wasn't until members started commenting that i knew then I had found a really nice coin, Everyone was so happy for me and I just couldn't believe it, 7 silvers I had that day and every one of them made it so wiry while my hands being numb.

My first big rally was at the Detecting Scotland dig near St Andrews. My 3rd hole dug I found a 13th century copper alloy seal matrix in amazing condition. I had to check with buddy what it was and was advised it was a once in a life time find. The matrix had a St Andrews cross so important to the area! My best day out digging in my short digging career!!!

a "nest" of targets

CTX 3030

Fortunately, the CTX3030 has a small coil CTX06 Smart Coil allowed me to properly locate and discriminate often multiple targets in the same hole with nails and aluminum waste.

Thank you to Minelab team for having created a such powerful and so sophisticated device, allowing me to fully satisfy my hobby!

Well what a morning found my best ever piece of gold jewellery . Went to a spot at the beach I Have been to many times before, I scored a few pre decimals and two gold rings one a small 18k band and the other a large 9k signet ring but the best find is a heavy gold chain stamped 999 which is pure gold, when I first saw it in the scoop I wad stoked but as soon as I picked it up i knew it was something special the weight is remarkable and that deep rich colour looked amazing.
Back at home it weighed 37.55 grams. Needless to say it is my find of a lifetime.
Thank you Minelab for producing such a great detector.

Oldies Rock

CTX 3030

December 29, 2014 08:00am

Rocky Beaches I normally avoid. Big Mistake. Having worked the sandy patches of a local Adelaide beach with no real luck except for a few $2 and $1's, I decided to try the rocky stretch further along. Immediately I recorded a solid 12.41 and there was my first Penny under a large round rock. An 1892, followed soon after by a 1917 One Florin - 2 Shillings. I knew this patch hadn't been worked before or at least not thoroughly as I pulled Sixpences, another Florin, Two 1950's shillings and some very old Victoria pennies which unfortunately the date was unreadable...Thanks to my 3030, it was a fun couple of hours before the tide came in. I'll be back there asap.. and finding more rocky beaches to explore..

My first year

CTX 3030

December 27, 2014 10:00am

It's not my first year detecting but it is my first year with a Minelab and of course, it is the first year made of gold!
I used my Minelab CTX 3030 searching in shallow water with very good results, i started to find gold very soon with my CTX. It is a powerful and immediately easy to use detector; easy to set, clear tones and very good in target separation.
