I was able to get out this past weekend for some detecting. I decided to revisit an old patch of mine here in Arizona that had given me at least 40 nuggets over the years. It was a good spot, but I had pounded it to death. My last visit with the GPX-4500 only produced three targets for me; all of which were bullets. I didn’t have much hope this trip, but I figured if I beat the brush and swung nice and slow, I should be able to squeak out a few more targets. Well, I got targets all right, and luckily a majority of them were yellow. The sensitivity of GPZ 7000 absolutely blows me away! I found myself scratching out tiny flakes of gold in the dirt around my old holes! I couldn’t believe it, but by the end of the day I had accumulated a nice handful of little gold. I hit 17 pieces for a total weight of 3.5-grams. I was happy that my trustee GPX didn’t pass over any nuggets of size, but it definitely proved that the technology inside the 7000 allows it to see gold in mineralized ground that other machines simply can’t. Here are a few photos of the gold, along with one that I believe are the remains of a good-sized snake. The only portion missing was the head; kinda neat.
A friend and customer of mine sent over these photos of a nice patch he got onto with the Minelab GPZ 7000. From what I understand this was the first gold he found with the machine. He spent quite a bit of time searching the hills without luck, then bingo he came upon this spot and made up for all those hours of swinging!!! Congratulations to this hard working prospector; your patience paid off!
Hi everyone, Some friends and customers of mine that purchased the Minelab GPZ 7000’s sent over these photos showing off some incredible gold they have recently come across. The monster of the group has been nicknamed the “King Nugget” and weighs just shy of 5-ounces! I’m not sure about the weights of the other pieces, but check out those gorgeous specimens. The ribbons of gold shine on that brilliant white quartz! These are some amazing finds and I really appreciate them letting me share them here on the forum. I am sworn to secrecy right now, so I can only say they were found in the far western US. I am fully confident there will be more nuggets in their future and hopefully I’ll be able to post those as well. Congratulations guys – keep up the good work!
