This was just under 1 ounce, notice the bent over piece,it had a piece of gravel tucked inside.

GPX 5000 for sure. You can take it out of the box and find gold. I found a 2.05 oz Arizona gold nugget with factory presets. And last year it found over 3 oz of gold in Arizona in 2 weeks, detecting only on weekends.

Have you got the date yet?

Great News. Get healthy if you ain't got your health, you've got nothin'

Just a heads up for those of you that don't use a bungee or hipstick to help hold up that 5000 with a large coil. I thought I was indestructible and didn't need one of THOSE things. Well I had the dreaded rotator cuff surgery on my detector arm in mid January. Now after 14 weeks of physical therapy, they said if I am careful, I can detect with a bungee for an hour or less until this fall. Then its a gradual rebuilding of my arms ability to detect a full day. Take care of your shoulders.THIS SUCKS

It was doing that before I broke it. Largest nugget this year was a 1.3 oz ,but it also found a .9 oz and a .5 oz all in May. Dave

I had an accident and fell on my GPX 5000. I slid down a hill into a wash and landed on the detector. One of the back legs broke, which opened the side of the case around the rubber seal.It still worked after the crash, I found 3 small dinks and 2 that were about a pennyweight each. I sent it into the service center 2.5 weeks ago and got it back yesterday.That is impressive. I'll get it out next week and see if it works any better. Dave
Wow-- Lon got 2 today .GREAT JOB LON !!! Dave

The GPAA will have their annual Stanton event next month. I think it's the weekend of the 29th. If you are new, that is the place to meet other metal detectorists and attend their workshops. Good luck! Dave

I also have an MD 20 and use it almost every time I'm out. I've identified many pieces of gold buried inside a rock. I use a PI- Detector Pro pistol probe pinpointer and it works great with the Minelab 5000.I haven't tried the new Minelab. Dave

Frank And Terri- Congrats !!! What a team, those yellow rocks won't be able to hide with you both chasing them. Dave

Ron- Don't you hate it when that happens!!! I found a 2.2 oz. that a guy had just walked over. He left his footprint in the mud. Dave

Even if the economy tanks there will always be people with lots of eggs or tires or milk and they will take anything that they can trade with the other people at the top. Just make sure you can DEFEND your gold or eggs or tires or milk. Dave

Here in Arizona the Africanized bees are so bad, the fire dept can't get enough juice on the swarm without getting several stings and thats a 3-4" hose with a pump behind it. A spray can wouldn't help much.I'm usually hunting alone and don't want to try it against a swarm 4-5 feet wide coming right at me with BAD INTENTIONS written all over it. The survivors have hundreds of bees in their nose, ears and mouth when they are rescued. i just hope I won't ever have to find out. Dave

What a place to get a bite!! Did it catch you sleeping? Dave

John- That has been the rumor for a couple years. The mine is for sale and there was earnest money on the line last year. The potential buyer wasn't able to get it done in time, so we got to come back this year. We won't know until October/November if it is sold again. Hope not!! Dave
