A few nice ones

Post  davsgold on Sun Aug 06, 2017 7:43 pm

Got a few nice ones in around the little ones over the last couple of days. Very Happy

11.5 gram at around 20" deep


3.6 gram at around 16" deep


3.74 gram under a big log which had to be moved and then just about 4" in the ground

G'day Annie, Pete Jen Mike and Bill

Thanks for your comments.

Yes the 19" coil ay, seems to work OK, Very Happy the 7000 has had the latest software update installed. So the settings are basically High Yield and Difficult ground smoothing off and using the semi auto tracking and sensitivity as much as you can for the ground and the day.

Yes it is bloody heavy and NO I didn't check for the 30% better. Laughing This piece of ground has been gone over by me and others with the 7000 and the 14" coil before and also the 4500's and 5000's with the elite 14" coiltecks etc. So I tend to think just on this info the 19" on the 7000 out performed by some sort of margin. Very Happy

Thanks for settings info Dave..It`s early days for me and the 7000,but yeah High Yield / Difficult works great and like you say other settings to suit ground / and operator...HY / General and HY / Difficult are very close on targets i`ve tested so far...but as always it pays to go back over the same productive ground with other settings...Sooner or later that 19 inch coil will pull a chunky nugget from the depths bounce Smile

Great nuggets Dave and Veronica. They remind me of burrendong nuggets. They are flat and one has a rolled over edge. I believe this is indicative of nuggets hammered in a big river in the past. (possibly no big river evidence being visible in the spot now) Could that be the case in the area your working?

Thanks Tributer, yes no see big river in the present landscape out here. Very Happy just flat drainage systems where the water goes now, yes one definitely is like the Burrendong nuggets, very flat and thin with rolled edges.

Good on you Dave,

I'm new to the 7000 so seeing someone pull something like that out of the ground is great. I'm used to getting horse nails at about 12 inches. I'm only borrowing but will purchase one in the near future.

Cheers

Hey flyspecks, mate your right it's great looking ground and best of all there is still a bit of gold in it and the occasional bigger one.

G'day Doug, the 7000 is a good friend you just need to get to know it very well, I've been using mine since they were released, but am only now getting to know the big 19" coil, and it's a big beast of a thing that can get results in the right places.

Thanks Kon, yes the 19" coil is not for use all day but on the odd occasion in the right ground it seems to work well. Very Happy

Thanks California, yes it can find some deep ones that seemed to be hidden by other combinations. I not sure I have the 19" beast mastered yet but I will continue working on that. Very Happy
