Help from a friend got the results

After almost two years and nothing found, I realised I was high tone deaf and that my settings were too high. After a friend took me out to her patch, set me up and sent me out with the settings changed to suit, I found my first bit: 73g with a

A very lucky find in a well walked area

After searching for gold on some private property for several hours for no result, I thought I would go to a well worked area on common land that I’ve always had a feeling would hold a decent sized nugget. This area had given up many small nuggets up to 3g

Ran Like A Dream

I own a Minelab GP3500 and usually run DD coils. One day, when at a Minelab dealers shop in Ballarat, I was given the opportunity of taking the 11in Coiltek Elite for a test run. Another prospector was standing beside me and said “mate, those coils are too sensitive for your old GP3500, you will get nothing but ground noise” I was undeterred, I had heard how good these coils were, and Coiltek would not say they would suit a GP model just to get sales, so I was in I headed off to a patch that I had got some nuggets from and thought I had cleaned out.

Beginners Luck

I recently found an undetected patch of good gold nuggets in the Victorian Golden Triangle. Right by a track that people have driven over for years. Yes there is a fair amount of trash around, but it just looked too good. A few junk pieces and my first piece was over one gram and not too deep. I have been back twice and am over the ounce mark with the biggest up until last week being 8.6 grams. When my brother who has never detected for gold before saw this he needed to book a flight from NZ and come out and join our Dad and detect the patch.
