Sunday's Hunt Detecting

Recommended Posts

Got out last Sunday in this wonderful weather we've been having lately, with my buddy Chris. We decided to hunt a new spot, as the old spots were petering out faster than the 5th hour of a Viagra. But this new spot I think is gonna be hour 1.....:nutty::arrowheadsmiley:

  Enclosing a pic....

Mucho Oro for Everyone....

Great looking Gold Dave, that is an interesting area where we were, cant wait to get back there. Funny how the gold gives off a "trashy" signal there. Also my giant deep nugget signal in the clay lol. Anyone have experience with red clay setting off the GPZ?

Thanks everyone....

Chris, that gold does give some choppy signal on the 7000. I did have clay hits on the 5000 a few years back, the mineralization of the clay gives the detector almost like a mellow zip, not quite as good as a nugget, but can still make you think you got something, I guess we learn the hard way with 5 foot craters in the ground....

Hey now, "that's some nice looking gold",... I'll bet it did make that 7000 react with a weird-sounding response.  I think Bill Southern and Uncle Ron have found nuggets that look much like that down around LSD here in Arizona.  They look sort of geothermal-formed??  Gary
