Nice piece today

Post  davsgold on Fri Jun 08, 2018 6:14 pm

Got this one today, bit of a drive after the rain and a bit of a wander through the hills, total weight is 14.15 grams and after the specific gravity test suggest there is about 8 grams of gold.  That one, plus 3 tiny bits for about another gram, so it was not that bad for a morning walk.

The mighty GPZ7000 and the standard 14" coil got this one.

Well done Dave, great find! How deep was it? Is there rock on the other side? From this side it looks like light ironstone coating.

Cheers,

Stan O

Thanks Stan, about 10" deep in the bank of an Ironstone type creek, fairly noisy sort of ground,been very near this one on a few occasions but just missed it. Shocked got it this time though. Very Happy

It has only been rinsed with water, and has the hematite/ironstone type stuff on the side you can see and a dirty looking quartz layer on the back side.

Thanks to deutran, Digginerup, Kon61gold and piston broke for the good wishes, just goes to show that a flogged area was not totally flogged, it maybe now, but I will have another look today, maybe even put the 19" coil on for a bit, as the ground/gravel is reasonably deep in places along this creek.

I was running in High Yield and Difficult as the ground is quite noisy and plenty of hot ironstone and some kind of a "Shale" stuff the rings like big deep one, and makes you dig to make sure.

Another nice one, not as big as the other one but nice just the same.  2.5 grams of yellow goodness, at least 12" deep in noisy ground.

Dig dig


End result 2.5 grams

Your right flyspecks, Veronica might have something to say about that. Laughing The red dirt has a few rain drops on it today, the weather has had a bit of a change come through today some showers and quite cool, I guess it was going to happen but I hope the showers head over east real quick.

A nice start for the day with this 4.25 gram piece, Very Happy  we ended the day with 22 nuggets for 8 grams in total so you probably realize that 21 of them were not that big. Laughing

G'day Pete

Thanks, and the settings were as follows.

B&Z booster with dual external speakers.

Use the ferrite in all the settings you want to use and then go to "Semi Auto" ground balance, this locks the ferrite and don't need to use it after that for that area.

Threshold = 27
Tone/Pitch = 38
Ground smoothing = patch
Audio smoothing was on high for this area
Sensitivity = 18
High yield and Difficult
Go very slow. Very Happy
