Took me awhile

Post  slimpickens on Mon Dec 12, 2016 3:37 pm

But I finally found them........obvious good taste. Razz  Cool








Went detecting yesterday to a little gully area only 15 m x 80 m that I've done 3 times before, each time finding a specie or two. I was just meant to walk through to get to another gully but things change. I thought I had reamed the place, and all that was left was the odd loud piece of trash that i didn't bother to dig out. Out popped 3 species and a little nuggie. Why did I miss them on the last 3 trips? Especially the one top right which has over 2 grams of gold all through it, and was found at about 4 or 5 inches. Well here's my theory. Because it was a pleasant Sunday morning I really took my time, I mean dead slow, I really didn't want the session to end and Monique my lovely Zed, was humming. Also by using less sensitivity and lower volume the trash signals sounded a bit less "trashier" so I dug them up.






Weird one with 3 different types of stone attached. How can that be?






Cheers all, Harry.

Gday slim. I to have recently knocked back my sensitivity and volume to create a much more stable z. My finds have increased greatly as a result am using a bz which i van crank the volume up with i reckon it makes a difference.
Cheers
P.s. nice species

Very nice to see the gold formed in the species slim, well done on your finds. Those cats should be given an award for their stealth.

Good on you Slim. Yes......I took a page out of what JP said regarding being conservative with your settings on the Zed. I always ran my 4500 on the slightly ratty side with hot settings. But with the Zed this weekend just gone I wound the sensitivity down to 6 from 13 & threshold 25. Just to mellow it down a bit. Like you said it makes the signals not sound so much like trash. Although I am digging every thing to learn the sounds of the Zed. The other couple of weekends I was starting to walk away for signals that had moved after one or two light scrapes as I was getting sick of digging shoty pellets.  V41  The Zed does give such a positive signal hit......& on such small gold & pellets....grrrr. I haven't got confident leaving signals un-dug.....& probably never will  Rolling Eyes
So...do you think you passed up those signals in the past being very confident that they were junk....only to dig them when the Zed gave you the hits?? If so....you naughty boy.   T02  V04  V02 Now go to your room & write 100 times, I WILL DIG ALL SIGNALS.  lol!

Good luck out there

Thanks all.
JW, guilty as charged. Although the jury should take into consideration when considering sentencing, that my acute psychic abilities kick in when I'm about to drop from exhaustion and I'm able to distinguish between trash and gold nuggets 99% of the time, and in record time too.  Rolling Eyes   Laughing

Yes, you have look twice at some of those shotgun pellets, this one magically turned to gold right before my eyes, .082 gr.



i will dig all signals i will dig all signals i will dig all signals i will dig all signals i will dig all signals etc, etc Razz

Bute Speccies Harry! And kittens too! And go figure you can get the fancy heated cat bed for them laced with  catnip and they want to sleep in the box it came in?!    Regards Richard

Lol... 
one time I was emptying my jean pockets of all the trash
Of what I thought were shot pellets i had found while detecting
As i was showing Mike how much rubbish i had found


When Mike says.. " this one is gold"
So i gave him all my lead junk to check them from then on Very Happy
As I was throwing them all into a trash container. V32
They all looked like lead to me 
Need to have my glasses on .. me thinks! V01


Love the cats... lucky they cant open the cans Laughing

Phoenix, I was using the Z 14",  I got rid of the  Z 19" coil.
Thanks RRR, those kittens have decided to piss me right off till they settle in their plush basket, I think they're making fun of me.   Laughing Yesterday I found them sleeping in the aluminium fruit bowl! Razz
Jen, I never take my glasses with me, I think I should start carrying them.

I checked my records and discovered I hadn't done this little gully with the SDC, so... this morning went and found 2 more species with it.



This ones' a kinder surprise, no visible gold showing, but the pin pointer goes off on it good. I'll smash it up later today. It made a strong warbly noise
.

Smashed it! about .3 or .4 grams I'd say.





smashed the big one as well, .219 gr.

Also found this rubbish that the Zed somehow missed.

No worries phoenix. Yes the coup de gras was delivered expediently and cleanly, and it was disposed of ethically. No innocent third party was harmed in it's disposal. Q03 Q10

Hi Jen,

I think your right about the glasses, those "tins" that you said the kittens should not open are stubbies. What a Face

Cheers
