Just bought the NF 17x13 Evo coil for my 5000 and I am wondering what settings you hunters in Australia are using in mineralized to highly mineralized ground. Your thoughts will be much appreciated!! bounce Q08 Q32 V11 Thanks from the Idaho guy!!! P.M. me if you don't want to public post! What a Face

T24 Mate special/fine is your best bet .Veeeeery slow swing speed ,slow tracking ,and constant G/B . It also depends largely on your'' type'' of ground minerilisation . In my goldfield area ,some soil types are highly magnetic ,these newer type of coils ,mono's , are to'' sensitive ''even in fine gold ,so have had to revert back to DD's ,running in normal / deep ?,or my favourite sharp ! if the ground will allow me .

I am running mine in California...on med-to heavy mineralized soil....like hugh62 stated..Iam finding that a very, very slow swing speed helps with those tid bits down deep. I run a 4500 but you can apply pretty much similar settings on the 5000. I run mine in enhanced mode, stab low at 7-8, fixed mode, and I ground balance all the time. Here are three tid bits I found the other day 2 - at .19 grams at around 4 inches, the .23 gram 6-7 inches in some red clay. The signal I would have went right over if I did not have a stable threshold and very, very slow swing speed.GPX 5000 settings running a 17x13 Evo coil Evo_112GPX 5000 settings running a 17x13 Evo coil Evo_212
