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.

  Good going.  If I could get out detecting more often I might be able to justify a 7000.  I’ll be down there this spring, hmmmm.

Yep, the GPX 7000 is too heavy 😒and too expensive 😪 but It sure does a great job of finding gold.😎

Hawkeye, looking forward to seeing you this spring. I will be sure to have a brand new 7000 strategically set out, just in case :D

Dick, I'm with you 100%. Such a phenomenal machine, but it's a boat anchor! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that maybe someday we will see the GPZ technology in a Gold Monster or Equinox housing.
