My Last Detect For 2016

Post  kiwijw on Tue Jan 03, 2017 4:09 am

Hi guys & gals, Mrs JW & I headed back to my last wee patch find. It was going to be a scorcher of a day. We had to do a bit of walking as we went in Mrs JW's car as I had done in a rear wheel bearing & axle oil seal in my 4 x 4 on my last return home from this spot, & at this time of the year I couldnt get any one to do the repair. Rolling Eyes. So rigged up with the Zed, 4500 & 11" Elite coil (as Mrs JW hinted that she might have a swing) & the Gold Bug 2 plus all the other paraphernalia. Rolling Eyes  We trudged off to the spot.

Mrs JW clearing the sheep & rabbit poo off her choosen spot to make her nest.



Settled in nicely & with sounds as well. Rock on Mrs JW V28



To start off I went over my previous back filled digs with the Gold Bug 2. I had come on to a few little glory holes. One coughed up about 20 bits of gold. So I figured there was going to be some tiny gold the Zed had missed. Well.... signals every where.





This just kept going on





And on



Mrs Jw ended up giving a detect a miss as she said it was too hot. So she just chilled out under her umbrella reading & listening to her sounds.

I broke out the Zed & hit on some more little glory holes. Getting multiple pieces out of the one hole









So between the Zed finding these little glory holes & the GB2 cleaning them out. I had a ball.

All up. 57 pieces



For a total of just 4.55 grams.  Rolling Eyes Still.....a good note to leave 2016 on



I am just about to head out for my first detect of 2017.

Cheers all. Hope 2017 is kind to you all.

Best of luck out there. T06

Thanks guys for the commentd. Yer Hoff the GB2 is a weapon on the tiny stuff. I thought the Zed was doing ok on the small stuff but the GB2 is in a leauge of its own when it comes to the tiny tiny stuff & it all adds up. Because I was getting multiple pieces of gold per hole I thought there would be some in the throw out pile that the Zed wasnt getting. The GB2 is great for pin pointing with too down in the tight holes & has a good discrimination. The Zed can be a b**tard to pin point with when down in a hole so the two work really good together. No gold is going to escape. T06 Cheers

Thanks Mike & GemQ. I guess being a builder keeps me in pretty good shape for my 57 years. So too walking the hills, but that is at my own pace.

Good luck out there
