Some tibooburra gold

Post  Travelergold on Mon Aug 20, 2018 8:21 pm

Just thought we would share a story of our trip to tibooburra for a few days. We made trip with some other friends after both feeling bit better which worked well in case health turned sh!t.  Its amazing how being out enjoying yourself instead of bottled up at home going batty helps.
For the few days partial detecting I found 28 bits with 7000 for 2.7grams but Mrs TG did better with only 1 bit with 2300 for 3.5grams. (10" depth and screamed from surface)
Will get some pictures up when davesgold (thanking you) can post for us as we can't get ipad to post pics.
Also had a ground noise that had mates digging for more than a few hrs to fool us. 2 1/2 foot through cap rock/(might have well been concrete) and buggered 1 pick. Crowbar borrowed fared ok. Kept sounding like a real target and got stronger the deeper it went and was screaming in end. Only worked it out  it was ground noise when coil held stationary and  then went quiet. If we did same on real metal target the signal kept screaming.
Tibooburra is ok but we would both be more happy in WA. We are still finding gold and enjoying our country.

Congratulations to you both, good to hear you both still managed to get out detecting again

Ill health is a pain in the backside, but your right, fresh air and exploring around doing something, like detecting, can sure help, won’t cure it, but does help.
Sure beats being cooped up in the house.
Keep fighting travlergold.

Mrs TG, good to hear you are feeling better as well, the sdc2300 rocks hey?  cheers
Can’t wait for the pictures. bounce

Good going and well done on the gold TG.
That's a ripper getting a 3.5g nugget on the sdc.
Yes it's a great feeling being out in the bush.
Gee, the girls are outdoing the boys again, what's going on? Shocked

Hi TG.

Well done on you and the wife's finds.

Although I'm not too sure with your comment about assuming that deep signal in the cap rock was just ground noise, as you most likely know our detectors are motion detectors, this means if the coil is held motionless over a deep target, it should not make a noise.

This differs if you hold it steady above a metal target that is fairly close to the coil.

The only other thing I can imagine, is that if you were dipping the coil down into the hole while digging it, this will always increase a ground noise, giving you the idea you are on to a target.

When doing that, stop every now and again, and raise the coil to the level that you first heard the target, then sweep across it.
This will give you a true indication if it is a real signal or a ground noise, a metal target increases in volume as the soil is dug away.
Whereas a ground noise fades away when dug.

Try to sweep the coil at ground level firstly, until you are sure it is a definite metal target, then you can dip your coil in the hole all you like.

Cheers ozgold.

Ozgold, the signal was the same before we dug if coil was swept across at ground level. We have assumed was ground noise. We had same scenario a few times in WA but when dug deep signal disappeared. We may have left target but do not think so.
We had a ball as could only do so much. Jen, yes we never give up. Even constant chemo drugs and there mongrel side effects will not beat me.
