Finding gold in Thailand - it's not just a dream!

Metal detecting finds - 22g gold

I use many different coils with the GPX-4500, that day I was using 10 x 5 inch DD in normal mode. I have used this machine for about 3 years, I'm very impressed. I found a lot of gold, both small and large. 

That day we were looking in a Eucalyptus plantation where they had just uprooted all of the existing trees and were going to replant. It is a large area where they raise trees for paper production that we have permission to hunt in. We look for gold both day and night, a group of about 10 people. I was excited to come across this piece of gold which I found at a depth of about 30 cm, it weighs 22 g.

Dreams come true via a GPX 5000

Metal detector finds - gold

We were in Matabeleland region in the early hours of the day determined to search for the gold nuggets. Our first 15 steps as we followed the GPX 5000 with an 18 inch dish were drawn into attention by a heavy noise of a target signal, whose depth was less than a meter. 

We dug the target area and came across a solid 850g nugget. Wow we first shocked and puzzled because in our entire detecting job we had never seen such. The thought that came into the mind was to knock off from the hunt and celebrate the victory!!!

Metal detectorist finds gold nugget

Winner of Find of the Month - July, 2013

I have been detecting with Minelab for the last 2 years and have been very lucky. Today I found a 99 gram nugget and then another 21 grams through the rest of the day.

I am very blessed to be using Minelab. I wish all Zimbabweans could have the same Minelab so they can be as lucky as me.
