Just thought I'd share my finds from the first two outings with my new gpz. It should be said that the ground I'm searching in the second(second picture was my first time swingin my gpz) pic has been hit by every other detector under the sun. The grass is tall an dead, very tough conditions. The first  photo is in a new area I found with my gpx4000. Again, extremely tough area, heavily forested old diggins with sticks everywhere! The duff was about 3" thick, hot rocks were a serious issue with my 4000... all I can say is that I absolutely love my new machine! (The 1852 3¢ piece was found on my first trip out)

Hey Rockpile,

   I have to agree, I didn't realize I left that much gold behind at depth with my GPX 5000 and prior detectors.  I was a bit "concerned" about the real performance of the GPZ 7000, but it didn't take long to prove out to be a great detector, especially for depth and very crystalline or specimen gold.  I wish it was a few pounds lighter and a bit more ergonomic, but I guess you can't have everything! :lol:

Congrats on your recent success with your Minelab GPZ 7000.  Wishing you many more nuggets under the searchcoil.

Very cool finds, Rockpile.  I find that I have to move a little bit slower with the GPZ than I used to with the GPX5000.   But that could just be me.  

My method is to detect the area at a moderate pace and slow a little more with each indicator.   3 indicators and I am crawling.  But that is just my method so that I don't grow old trying to cover a few gullies :D
