  1. Just got back from our two week Az NV detecting trip. This year I concentrated on using my GPX4500 more using the stock 16" Mono Eliptical coil. We spent 1 week in Gold/ Lost Basin and 1 week in Pahrump. We stuck to the GSSN, GPAA and MPA claims. No gold in Arizona but plenty of trash kept us busy digging. Got 5 nuggets in Nevada on the GSSN claim. First one found first day of the trip in the first hour was 3.7 grams, about 2 inches under the surface.Got a 1.8, 1.5, .9, and a half grammer. This video shows our gold for the year and the last week we kept all the trash. We dug around 600 trash signals for the 2 nuggets found that week. Either it hadn't been hit that hard or people just throw their trash back down, hard to figure. Thanks Rob for all the help, I finally found the EMI problem, I didn't have the coil plug screwed in all the way, that was a noisy day in the fields.
  2. Thanks for the constructive criticism, running music while talking when its windy is a bad combination. Working on my video skills along with detecting skills. Hope to get as lucky as you did in the basin at end of the month- nice nugget!
  3. A few tiny nuggets found in the Black Hills with SDC that I got from Rob in Feb this year. I didn't know if the hills were a good fit for the minelabs as all the gold we have found the last few years was fine, flake, and smaller. I am having a longer learning curve on the GPX 4500 in these parts, but the 2300 found 3 a few weeks back. Bigger gold than ever came out of our sluices and pans. If anyone has any tips on South Dakota hunting, let me know. Thanks, Chris
