Went back to MY spot yesterday and some b@%$#&d was detecting in MY area so I cruised passed pretending not to show any interest at all Evil or Very Mad Laughing Laughing Laughing .
That's the way the cookie crumbles.
I wasn't to worried as he was swing his detector at breakneck speed and about 4 inches off the ground Laughing Laughing
Back today for another go, snagged 3 bit's for .5 of a gm.
I'm still amazed with the elite coil, got a .2gmer down a measured 8 inches, a very iffy signal but a few scrapes and the signal improved cheers

Hi there moredeep. That is a good effort. Well done. What size Elite coil are you running? I loved my 14" & 11" Elite coils on my 4500. They were the last coils I was using on the 4500 before I got my Zed.

Best of luck out there

I'm still pinging some nice little nuggets from the same spot,8 today and 3 the other day[still waiting for that deep murmur]
Big fat juicy spiders are aplenty at the moment, I'm still amazed at their engineering skills by being able to attach a web to a blade of grass some distance away for structural support.
Not sure how they actual decide what to use, do they actual look around and think that's a good looking anchor point. Life's big question What a Face Question

Thanks phrunt,I think that's why I'm pinging these little tiddlers, solid little tackers as opposed to the flat/thin ones.
Some targets were very iffy, removing the leaf litter in the first scrape made them more obvious.
All in all a bit of fun cheers

2 tiddlers this arvo, a glorious day to be in the bush.
I noticed my furry little friends were on the move, they may have been getting too hot and decided to move to a cooler spot??
Once again I pondered the big questions in life, which caterpillar decided it was time to move on, and who decided to lead and and where to ?affraid  
Are they democratic and took a vote or are they lead by a grubby dictator Question Question Question Question Question Question
I need to concentrate more on my detecting Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

Twas another glorious day in the scrub.
I got a bit bored with the same old spot as it was dwindling out. I decided to take the treasure detector for a spin around an old mine/crusher site but no luck Sad
I cruised around the bush for a while rubber necking for some old diggings/reef working -no luck  Sad
I was wasting time and the arvo was running out so I went back to my boring old spot  and pinged 4 tiddlers including a speci [right hand side in pic ] ,a total of 1.2 grams, you could have knocked me down with a feather. What a Face plus a few other on different days.
moto- never say never cheers  Laughing  Laughing

I'm still managing to pull a few tiddlers from this one spot.
I went out a few days ago and some mongrel [very nice fellow prospector  Laughing  Laughing ] was standing next to his car surveying the area  V02
15 or so metres away from where he was standing was a little patch where I got a dozen little nuggs, so thanks to some very tidy hole filling and leaf litter covering in the past by meez I don't think he spotted my activities  cheers Pays to cover up
I casually cruised past and gave him a nod and kept going pretending to be TOTALLY UNINTERSTED  V01  as I got up the road I looked in my revision and saw him leave Laughing
So I did a slow bush blocky and returned to ping a few more. V11

Hi moredeep, This spot of yours. Are you going back over the same ground you have already detected with same detector, coil & settings? Just interested that if you are then what do you put it down to finding more gold that you must have missed on previous occasions?

Good luck out there

Hi JW, I'm pretty much a lazy old flart when it comes to detecting.
I rarely change my setting and I'm to lazy to grid/circle/chain.
My belief system in life is based on fate, I'm a happy wonderer in the bush V01 just gotta put the coil over it.
Que sera sera Very Happy V25

Hi moredeep, That could explain it then.  lol!  
Gridding is essential when on a bit of a gold patch to give yourself the best chance of getting all it has to offer. By just wandering around willy nilly with no set pattern spots will be missed & you will probably detect some same ground numerous times which wastes time when out there. By gridding you will cover the area you want & know what ground you have covered. Not trying to tell you how to suck eggs but you create your own fate/luck by being a bit more thorough when on the gold. It is hard enough to find in the first place so when on to a bit you need to give it your best effort. T25

Best of luck out there

I do intensify my wanderings to the areas where I find gold but sadly get distracted and wonder off like a lost dog Laughing Laughing Laughing
Gold is a gift from mother nature, if she hands me a chunk I say thanks and finish the day off with a coldy and toast those long gone.
Simple pleasures cheers

Another beautiful crispy day here in central vic.
Rugged up for for a detect and ventured to a new spot, after about 1/2 an hour I pinged this nice little 2.67gmer,so for the next hour
I circled, gridded, cross gridded, walked backwards and detected doing handstands but alas it was an orphan nugget Sad
The two other bits were from the other day cheers
Beer was niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice Laughing
