Using the GPZ 7000 in High EMI conditions and Audio Smoothing

July 07, 2015 02:08pm

Recently I took a trip up north to spend a few days detecting with a good friend and Minelab dealer Peter Cragg at Gold City Detecting and his detecting mate with the aim to helping them obtain some hands-on field experience and instruction with the amazing new GPZ 7000 with its ZVT technology.

A Little GPZ Gold - Part 2

July 01, 2015 02:38pm

Following on from Part 1 of this blog which covered how I use a GPZ  with GPS to cover ground more effectively, I'd like to share some more techniques and detector settings I use for finding gold with my GPZ 7000.

A Little GPZ Gold - Part 1

July 01, 2015 02:05pm

This year has not been going exactly as I imagined it would. My stated goal for the year was to set a new record for days in the field detecting. So far however, it has been anything but that. No complaint - I have been devoting myself to visiting family and other things that took precedence over prospecting. Weather has also been a bit dodgy this spring leading me to sit out things a little waiting for better conditions.

My First Look at the GPZ 7000

June 29, 2015 11:19am

I was really eager to get my hands on the new GPZ 7000, as a lot of the functionality was borrowed from the CTX 3030, a machine I know well. I was particularly interested to see the improvements made to the CTX 3030 features and related products.

Using the "Dust Iron" Ferrite GB Aid for the GPZ 7000

June 01, 2015 10:00am

In Summary: If the ground is upsetting your detector due to saturation signals then use the "Dust Iron" Ferrite and the ‘Octopus’ sweep method at start-up and check the GB regularly. If the constant exposure of saturation signals and salt signals are still upsetting the ground balance where you can clearly hear the Ferrite when you are periodically checking, then I highly recommend you select Manual GB mode to prevent the saturation and salt signals adversely affecting the ground balance of your GPZ 7000.

The Warwick Wonder

May 01, 2015 08:39pm

Over the past weeks Aussie Digger (aka AD) has been sending me a steady flow of pictures of small nuggets up to 5 grams in size that he has been finding with the GPZ 7000. Well a man can only take so much of this and after getting an open invitation to come up any time I decided to bite the bullet, pack my GPZ 7000, head up and give it a go.

Eolian Gold Deposits

April 30, 2015 10:26pm

Eolian placers are a special type of residual gold deposit that prospectors should be interested in because the gold is shallow and richly concentrated - a condition well suited to exploitation with a metal detector.

My Method for Ground Balancing the GPZ 7000

April 20, 2015 07:49pm

After having spent quite some time with the testing and development of the GPZ 7000, and coming to grips with the new technology in this detector, I thought it would be great to share with you my ‘best’ method of getting up and running with all of the initial steps you need to carry out when turning on the unit and properly adjusting it to suit the conditions. While these steps are contained within the Field Guide and Instruction Manual, I have added a few practical tips of my own to help you out. So here they are:

A Growing Confidence

April 13, 2015 11:48pm

As I live in South Australia I often feel I was born in the wrong state when it comes to chasing gold. Friends of mine from all over Australia are always telling me about a patch they found and how much they got on the weekend etc. This always leaves me pondering how good it would be to live closer to where the high gold bearing areas are. When it comes to gold, South Australia has only produced a drop in the bucket compared to other states but if you put in the hard yards there are still some nice bits to be found. I recently went to a much hunted out area (because that’s all we have here) to see what the GPZ 7000 could find.

Gold Trip to Costa Rica (Part 1)

April 01, 2015 10:02pm

I have been travelling to Costa Rica for a few years now, taking a metal detector in my hand luggage in the hope to find some gold nuggets out in the jungles.

Over the years I’ve had reasonable success using the Minelab GPX 5000, last year finding 4 grams including a 1-gram nugget on my hotel’s beach. Okay, this is not the greatest of examples of success, but considering the challenging environment it’s not surprising I list this meager gold with pride.
