Hi Ross
WELCOME to the forum..

Gee 11 kids... affraid 
I had my hands full with three.. I got married in 75..

Anyway you have a great machine to detect with.. And if you start finding tiny bits of junk and shot pellets.
You know you are doing the right thing..
Can't wait to hear of your first gold find..

P.s. Will ask the moderators about putting this in the new members section.. Ok..
My fault ... I think I confused you..  lol! 

Great post.. T06

Welcome to the forum Ross. A little research and persistence over any a gold bearing ground,will increase your chances of finding gold.Go over your manual several times till you get a reasonable understanding of what's what and how the 5000 performs,then practice experimenting on various targets. Always start in factory pre-set till you build up enough confidence in your machine,before proceeding to more advanced search techniques.

Cheers Kon. What a Face

G'day Ross and welcome to the forum,

You have the best detector that is on the market at the present time. The standard 11" mono is as good a coil you could possibly need and you should be able to find gold with it. I personally use the 14" NFA round coil on my GPX5000 and find it a very good all round coil. I mostly run my detector in the fine gold setting with this coil and find sub gram to multi gram nuggets with out any problems shallow/deep. Usually I run my detector near to Factory Presets depending how the conditions are then I may adjust the gain and stabiliser to suit. As Kon61 has said read and get an understanding of the manual which may take quite a few times until it sinks in. Hope this helps and good luck out there. Here is a link so have a read.

Good luck for tomorrow Ross and remember Go Low and Slow. Try to keep your coil close to the ground and move very slow while swinging your coil very slowly. Dig any slight change in the threshold that you hear and enjoy you time out there. Hope to hear of your finds when you get back.  Very Happy

Seeing you have got 11 KIDS the first I would suggest is stick with the 11" coil (or smaller) till you get to really know your machine.
