8.09grams while testing the new 19 inch coil for 7000

Post  kevlorraine2 on Mon Nov 14, 2016 1:11 pm

talk about hitting the ground running .... i only had a hour to put together and test the new big coil, so went to where i had found some smalls in the throwout of a old timers dig.
after scraping aside four bits of surface rubbish tin, the sweet sound of gold was still there. after 14 inches a 8.09 was in my hand. Very Happy

i was in deep, normal, the same as i have been running for the last month with the 14inch. this 19in coil is quieter and with a sweet response that stayed the same with loudness, even when i lifted the coil six inches above the ground.

i have been joking that since the new 7000 came along i will have to live to be 87 to revisit all the spots that have produced gold, now i will have to revise that to about 97. What a Face

yes it picks up my pick about a foot closer to my face, and tends to pick up my rubbish bag if more than a couple of inches off the ground, (will have to empty that regularly).

WOW what a start, i dont feel like going out this arvo, might spoil the days high i am on cheers cheers cheers

What a great start! (Be still my beating heart) I just picked up my Zed 19" coil...... can't wait to try it out.  
The new coil is already causing me much anguish, I can't decide on whether to buy a Lamborghini or a Ferrari with all that gold I'm gonna find. scratch

There is a Ferrari  that has burnt out in Sydney a couple of days ago,  you should get that at a good price !

Do you like a "burnt yellow " colour ?

no goldchaser, i never thought to test the signal in other settings as i was too interested in clearing away the tin rubbish and then was surprised to hear this deep signal had become the dominate noise. i had to dig through about 10 inches of throw out soil, got to original ground level, and thought, heres the rubbish that has been covered over a hundred years ago, but then only a couple of more inches down, still in the original topsoil (colour told a story) the signal was out, it was practically a sunbaker before the oldtimer covered it over.

i never even got excited as i didnt get down to subsoil or rock bottom before it was out of the hole.

this one definately had my name on it Very Happy
