17' evolution and some gold

Recommended Posts

Hey all:
   Welp had to get a new coil and after talking with AJ and Mike F. about the evolution I decided to do it.

My old coiltek 14 elip was giving me fits with falsing and such. Doctered it up as much as I could but after 5 yrs of banging it around....it was tired.

Im loven it. It is a LOT more sensitive and seems to do a lot better on black sand and ironstone. 

It is a wee bit heaver than my old 14 elip, but exercise and a bungy will take care of that.

Went back into a area ive pounded and let others hit. I got more trash out of the main wash that I missed before. 

The small nails were 8" deep and the 3/4 X 3/4 piece of steel was at 1 1/2 feet deep...loved digging that one!

Now for the gold. They look like brothers :) But, they were actually up on the hill sides out of the main wash.

Two washes separating them. One was 3 feet up a 70 deg. slope and one was in a really small drainage that I never bothered to detect. 

Hit everything around up and down from where I found them. Just some loners.

A good friend and I went up there last week and he gave me all kinds of tips/hint/help/geology advice/ head exploding.......

Told me to hunt the one side of the wash. They are up there. But dang....hunting hillsides is hard!
Total in gold was 3 grams.

Enjoy!

Nice twins Tom :yesss:, a word of warning, detecting on the slopes will tend to make one of your legs shorter than the other, unless you rotate every other nugget, but even then eventually both of your legs will get so short that your butt will be dragging the ground :yikes:, it's a catch 22 type thing :idunno:,but on the bright side when that happens you won't have far to bend over to dig your targets!! :Diggin_a_hole:

Wow Tom, you're killing it out there.  And hillsides seem extra tough, though I always save time to try.  You've got the reason right there in poke. Great work!

Glad the new coil is working well for you Tom. Keep up the good work! Season is pretty much done for me ... in the mode to get the kayak ready for its voyage East to NH for the stripers and 3 largemouth bass tournies I will be competing in while there. Those tournies are kayak only ... going to win at least one of them this year! LOL!
