Quick hunt before football....


Recommended Posts

Decided to go to a spot I have been looking at trying the GPZ 7000 a few miles from home this morning before the Cardinal football game started at 10.00am Have hunted the area many times and found nuggets up to 3/4 ounce in the past. Most of the material is not much over a foot deep on top of Tuft bedrock and littered with ironstone, etc as well as hot basalt. First time I have felt the need to use the "High Yield" setting on the GPZ 7000 with the "Gain" at 6 as it is a noisy area, and though I only hunted a little over an hour I tagged 2 nuggets. One has enough magnetite in to be slightly magnetic. Going to have to go back and work the whole area in this setting, ran very stable and both were on the bedrock or almost at around 10 to 12 inches. Should not be any targets left at this spot since soil is so shallow :4chsmu1: was surprised....

Nothing beats finding nugs in a "worked out" area under ground one's already been over many times..

The supposition would be there's something to be said about the new machine with its expanded software..

Bill,

Good job. They look pretty nice to me.

Swamp,

There is a lot that beats finding small nuggets in a 'worked out' area but that is not where Bill went! haha :ROFL:

The Zed has expanded all of our hunting areas again and will open new and old.

What will be after the Zed for us? How deep can or will we go?

10-12 inces, I should probably just quit this detecting.

Honestly were, but was guessing (don't carry a ruler).... Not unusual for a 1 gram or so bit to be heard by the 7000 at that depth..... 5000 will hear some that deep as well in that size range.
