I posted this in the new members section, but thought i may get a few more eyes in this area. unsure if i can do that :S

Hey guys,

Longtime reader first time contributor. I have a gpx 5000 and have found a few nuggets here n there. I spent some time with Link and Kim from NFDU last year then due to a family reason had to sell my detector. Im back up and running now and am a little rusty. I went out to Hill End on Sunday fired up the old gpx and boy was the EMI terrible. She was singing like a choir group. I was in the middle of no where with no one around and I couldnt understand why it was all over the shop. Not a storm in sight. It drove me crazy. So i have to look over the settings and ensure everything is correct and give her another run through soon. Think ill call minelab and talk to them.

I went for a drive down the Bridle Track and geeze the river is nearly empty...... if anyone ever thought of going to get into spots that they couldnt before... now is your chance, shes all but dried up nearly at the crossing. I took some photos of the river and a video of a mountain we climbed in the 4X4 and ended up 800m above sea level looking over the whole of the valley. There was not a person in sight the whole trip. Ended up going out via the Root Hog Fire Trail, which on the other side of the river had diggings all nearby it as you come out. It was getting dark and wish i had a look at them a bit closer... has anyone else seen them?

Im hoping to head out to Ophir in the next 2 weeks, I hear it has been thrashed and am holding little luck to find any colour, but i guess its worth a try. I was hoping to take the quad down although id imagine its use is not allowed. I hear the best places to go are the ones people dont goto often. I wouldnt expect anyone to give away their spots but a direction or assistance in locating the elusive yellow stuff would be awesome.

Finally im based in Sydney. I wouldnt mind getting a mentor or someone to go out with.... even meeting a group of people to have a swing. im 27 the next gen in detecting i guess and would love to learn all about the things you guys have picked up.


Feel free to PM me or leave a message your input is greatly appreciated Smile

oops! Should pay a visit to SpecSavers, thought you said you are a "Bullshitist."

Welcome to the forum Goldhunter86, great hobby you are getting into, just be aware of the undesirables that lurk around here though. Wink
