Nature's beauty.

Post  Axtyr on Wed May 09, 2018 9:24 am

G’day all.

I got out yesterday and it was another beautiful day. I hit the same 2 areas I did last week and got another 2 pieces.

It didn’t take long before the first piece was found, 0.25 gram and only a couple of inches deep and gave off a good signal.


The second piece was a new experience for me. I have read so many people talk about the “warble” in the signal when they get gold. Well this was the first time I had heard the warble after almost 3 years with this detector. This is the first time I was expecting to dig up a nugget, and I was expecting one with quite a few holes in it. What I got was this 1.1 gram solid slug, my first one over a gram for the year.


As I approached the car to go home I could see something around the car but couldn’t quite figure it out. I managed to open the boot without scaring him off and even got the camera out to take some photos. It looks like he wasn’t happy with himself and was trying to scare himself off. He made a bit of a mess of the door as well as the mirror. A nice little flame robin. I wish I’d had the larger telephoto lens to get a bit closer.
 

Regards Axtyr.

Nothing better than an experience like yours Axtyr. Nature at it's best now recorded for all to see.

Nice Axtyr,
Have you thought about putting on a protective film on your magic coil, it's starting to look like a prune.
You better do it soon, or I will report you to  C.A.C.A. ( Coil Abuse Centre Austalia) Twisted Evil Laughing

Slim, it looks that way because it has a plastic protective cover over it. Has been on it for over a year now but still working O.K.

My mistake, apologies.

Axtyr, I have to ask, the nuggets you have been putting up are generally small and all fitting the same size category. I'm just wondering are they roughly from the same area or are you just not on a run of slightly bigger ones yet. And trust me, I am not belittling the size, because I love every one of them, but would like you to start pulling in a larger different grade because you've earned it, maybe move a kilometre either way? What do you think the problem is? I'm sure you or anyone else will have a theory. All I can suggest is "move", don't get comfortable picking up the flysh*t..

I might be teaching grandma how to suck eggs here,and if that is the case, I'll apologise right now Axtyr. Cheers, Harry.

Slim, most of the pieces are from the Talbot area within about 2kms of each other, although I venture out to Maryborough and Amherst occasionally.
Last trip was to Kangaroo Flat for nothing, although I don't think I picked a very good spot. Tomorrow it will be the Whipstick. Lots of small pieces but I keep telling myself that there's a nice one coming up soon.

I haven't changed any of my settings on the 7000 since 2016 other than to suit the B&Z booster, and maybe tomorrow I will try the ground smoothing and ground balance settings to see if it makes a difference. I had completely forgotten about the semi-auto ability of the updated settings.

Regards Axtyr.
