  1. I made it out this morning for a couple hours and scored my first 6000 gold out in Arizona, my smallest piece ever found with a detector weighing a massive .05gram. It gave a clear repeatable signal and was down about and inch or two sitting against a small rock... now I need to find the other 1000 of its cousins.

  2. Guys you know if you dig up all theses baby nuggets they will never have the opportunity to grow up to be big nuggets. Here’s what you need to do when you find one and that’s send me the GPS location that’s so I can go water them as needed. Chuck

  4. The closeup of the window into your rock is definitely showing metal flakes typical of the GB meteorites...great photo. Lots of the fragments have been broken and the fusion crust stripped away by mechanical weathering, leaving no obvious exterior characteristics of meteorites, so they can be difficult to recognize until the interior is exposed, showing the telltale nickel-iron flakes.

  5. Yep, tiny piece... still better that the trash that came with it, in defense of the 6000 every detector made has covered that area including my 7000 with the stock 14 and the nf z search coil pulling blanks the last couple times there. this is some of the trash and some hot rocks that were pretty deep I’m assuming they are probably iron stone but they seem to have visible metal not sure I’ve seen that outside of the GB meteorites but these just don’t look meteoritic to me. Anyway really tiny trash and some deep rocks to go with my tiny gold.

  6. 89 year old Ron Chester was stopped by the police around 2 a.m. and was asked where he was going at that time of night.Ron replied, "I'm on my way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on the human body, as well as smoking and staying out late."The officer asked, "Really? Who's giving that lecture at this time of night?"Ron replied, "That would be my wife.

  7. Tim’s 2021 North Yuba River Nugget Hunt Click here to view video The tribe has gathered for another year at the Third annual Tim's North Yuba River Nugget Hunt . The Weather was warm and the water was refreshing as the Prospectors searched for that elusive Gold. The River was a bit lower this year so it exposed new areas to work. as Todd aka "Topcat" has often declared "It's not all about the gold." it's the people we share this day with that make it so much fun for everyone. Follow along our journey into the happenings of Saturday July 24th 2021 at Tim's 2021 North Yuba River Nugget Hunt !!! There were many prospectors in attendance and I know I didn't get pictures or Video of everyone as they came and went thoughtout the day. There were plenty of Metal detector's running and Gold Pan's a panning and even a few sluice boxes running and showing that Yuba Gold dancing in the riffles. it was a great time spending the day in the Mother lode with friends old and new, finding Gold and sharing stories it's a shame we only do this once a year !!!!! Guess who found the most Gold this year ???? and the Biggest Nugget ???? This year we Gathered together at the end of the day to see who would Win 3 Grams of Tim's Gold. To see who won you will have to watch Tim's Video @blueleadgoldproductions

  10. This confirms my suspicion that the 6000 is one of the worse detectors out there for finding gold. Who wants a detector that can only find fly poop?! Me… Congratulations! The challenge has been made, and now the hunt is on!

  11. Sorry, but you are wrong. Judging something before trying it is like saying a duck can not swim without seeing it. I have simply told as well as showed my experiences so far and no one is forcing you to try or purchase one. If you owned one and were saying the same I may be paying attention, but.... Anyway it is cheaper than a bass boat. I have now found over 30 nuggets in the few weeks I have owned this detector and most are from areas worked with the machines you mentioned as well as other PI detectors and the gold was still there! But now it is mine and a couple are pretty darn nice ones. The 6000 will hear gold the 7000 missed and there are plenty of Aussie and US users showing just that at YouTube and elsewhere if you take the time to look. In the mid and small nugget range the 6000 hears what the GPZ 7000 could not and yes I own both and know this by experience. Discrimination on a PI is not doable with any accuracy on a PI detector and that is why it is not on this one or the 7000 due to the technology, they had a sort of discrimination on some early Minelab PIs but it was just a breaking threshold type and was not reliable and even discrimination on a VLF can cost you nuggets if using it while hunting. Cheers and good hunting, Bill
