  2. Finding Gold Nuggets with the Minelab SDC 2300 Click to View Video Can I beat @Two Toes with his own Metal Detector ? We head back to finish off a few spots we left from our last trip out. Gary found some good gravel so he decided to run it though his Sluice box while I was happy to use his Minelab SDC 2300 while he was busy sluicing !!!! Those targets that we left sure paid off !!! nothing like hearing a good sounding target sitting on bedrock . SG 041
  3. Hello All, Here we are again, a partner and I placering a dry creek bed. The process of placering is to remove all the overburden (rocks, gravel) and process or work the paypayer/bedrock. We are doing that by using rakes, shovels, crevice tools and then using metal detectors to scan the paylayer and bedrock for gold nuggets. This process is back breaking hard work, but can be very rewarding in the right locations. As you can see in this video, we hit a nice crevice that had a hidden beauty in it, a 3/4 ounce gold nugget. The nugget was wedged below the hardpack gravels and wedged in a bedrock crack. In this video we were using the Minelab GPZ 7000 metal detector, Garrett AT Pinpointer and several hand tools, including "Two Toes" nice crevice tool he shipped me. We have gotten a ton of use from this tool, very good on narrow bedrock cracks and holds up well. Contact Gary for more information, or visit his "Two Toes Youtube Channel. Thanks Gary!! Remember, the true treasure is the ability to get outdoors and enjoy your friendship with others that also enjoy this hobby. God Bless, Rob

  8. Well, part two and part three of my videos on the Gold Monster 1000 are now complete and up loaded for viewing. In part 2 I do a field demonstration of the GM 1000 in different soils, and in Part 3 I am giving hints and tips on how to get the best performance out of the GM1000, but a lot of that info applies to many VLFs, not just the GM1000. I also focus on the types of places that the GM1000 will perform best and make some suggestions to prospectors on how you can increase your chances to find gold. Doing these videos has been an educational experience and I will be doing more in the coming weeks on a variety of prospecting topics, not just metal detecting. Here is part 3, part two is below 3. Here is Part 2, a field demonstration of the Gold Monster 1000 and its capabilities:

  12. Made it out Sunday with a good friend to the hunting grounds. Had a blast hiking all over the place and digging everything from square nails to a rusted out pocket knife. We hit one spot and decided to do a bit of clearing and overburden removal, and agreed to split the finds. I gave a stump the old mule kick as my partner had a good feeling about what was under it. Cleared away some ground and bam he got a nice signal right where the stump was. Turned out to be a nice little 3.5 gram pc. Was first detected with a GPX4500 and a sadie coil, I put my new to me 5000 over it with the 11" mono and it sounded great!! Good luck to all and get some au under those coils!!
  13. I have the original camo back pack that my 2100 came with and a monster cord and a new 6 volt battery. Rob helped me hotrod my machine a year ago with the gold screamer and the best coil out at that time.My gold take had been sluffing off on the old patches but I knew it was still there.The next 2 days I hit my favorite patch and paid for the mods plus some. Hope someone out there has a real need for these items they're in excellent condition. Mike

  15. Hello All, This weekend a partner and I conducted field instructions for two new Minelab GPX-5000 customers. One customer was from the Phoenix area, other drove down from Lake Havasu City. After going over the detector and settings, both customers were out detecting. At the end of the day, Marvin from the Phoenix area ended up with two nuggets shown below. Chip & his wife didn't get lucky, but they had a great time. Thank you both for your business. Don't hesitate to get a hold of me if you have any questions. Sunday, my partner and I hit a new area not too far away. Within a few hours I scored 5 small nuggets with the Minelab GPX-5000. The ground was pretty hot, but managed to run Sensitive/Extra with Deep audio in this area. Check out the nuggets below. Overall it was a great weekend. The weather Sunday was awesome! Picture 1 - Chip displaying his new Minelab GPX-5000 in the Arizona goldfields Picture 2 - Marvin checking out a nugget he just scored, his first with the new Minelab GPX-5000 Picture 3 - Marvin showing off his two nuggets found in Arizona Picture 4 - Gold nuggets I found hunting a new location Take care, Rob Allison
  16. Hello All, This weekend, Chris & his Family drove all the way down from Barstow, California to pick up their new Minelab GPX-5000 & Minelab X-Terra 705 and to learn how to use them. It was great to finally put a face on Chris and several of his family members that also post on the forums. We all spent about an hour putting together the GPX-5000 and then spent some time going over the settings, timings and some basic tips/tricks to get started. Within a few hours, Chris scored several nuggets, both around 1/2 Dwt each. I can tell Chris was impressed with the performance of the Minelab GPX-5000, especially on small gold. Chris it was great meeting you and your family. Thanks a million for your business and making it down for field instructions. Looking forward to hearing about your success with the new detector in the Southern California desert regions. If you have any questions whatsoever, don't hesitate to call, email or post on the forums. Here are some pictures of Chris, his family and their finds in Arizona with Rob's Detector Sales. Talk with you soon, Rob Allison
