    Gold Prospecting & Bushwalking
  1. Forget about the setting and detectors just cover the ground. Cover it casually and spread out wide as the ground will allow. When you have done this , it is then time to ask for help providing you have not found any gold.
  2. Great Mate, it good to see gold with out having a magnifying glass to see it.

    Rye Patch ?

    Jen I hit a rock that I did not see 50 Km Off road one day. It took out 2 tyres and the front wheel alignment. Only had one spare so I see your point it not nice to get caught like that. When I got back I lent a couple of wheels and had to do a 500 Km round trip to get 4 new tyres more suited for situation.

    AT Gold coil ?

    Rohan Sadie that is in my collection I won when it was first released, It a great coil I don't use it much I'm not sure it is because I like his larger coils for patch hunting or because the wife has claimed it. Sadie has found thousands of small nuggets over the years mainly by her. I think it is hard to get the sadie of her than the gold. Note she not wearing High Heals
  5. You're dead right MATE. This is my second smallest "bottle" I have just found the little one.
  6. Tell your DAD that medical procedures are near miracle these days. I have had inner parts of my heart electrically burnt (Catheter ablation) and then Cryogenic frozen finally AV node severed for permanent ventricular pacing. Now I am fully dependent on a Pacemaker with built in defibrillator. I had a cardiac arrest with no heart beat for 22.5 minute thanks to Rapid CPR, I survived and can still walk a marathon, kayak solo many miles on flat water. In fact I would not know I had a cardiac arrest now except for the weight gain due to medication. They are a long way in front of Christian Barnard 1967 breakthrough.
  7. It is the way to go. Back in the 1980/81 we used to check aerial photo in the golden triangle for puddling dams and surfacing areas (striped of trees). This was one way of finding spots that others might not of found. I then used the mines department record and databases. This lead me to get all the pre 1950 gold mines and put them in my own database (google .......historical-gold-mines-in-google-earth) which I made available for Ozi gold prospector. As a hobby it has made my gold chasing well worth while.
  8. Did you chase the flies away mate. I have had to clap my hands in front of my face just to see where I was.

    Minelab SDC 2300 New Info 1/31/14

    Some folks though have to work with what they can access, and that may be areas where a patch may mean 1000 pieces of gold, all under a 1/2 gram. That's 16 oz not a bad small patch in this day and age. However I would feel like I'm playing with a toy with a 8" coil.
  11. Less than a week to go to the full announcement of the SDC-2300.
  12. Specked at 4 yards while sitting down for lunch. 5 dwt West Aust The last sunbaker I got on my second last day in West Aust late last July. It's weight was 28.5 grams

    New GPX Model

    I decided not to by a ML 5000 last season in Aust. and went with the old m/c (machine). This year I will not go at all unless the new m/c is released, for the Aust. winter season. Most of us oldtimers think that ML will miss the boat, if they don't release a break through Detector very soon. Rob replied Did you say you will be buying in June not july
  14. I hope the 5 ex wives you offered are in better shape than you. If not I think they would be a liability to Doc
  15. Well the best thing is you will not do that again. In the outback (Aus) as well as water you must take medication, GPS, Communication, and batteries and back-up. If you don't you sure can be in trouble.
