    More "GOLD" for the treasure chest

    Today was my last Island hunt,heading back to the mainland tomorrow.Had my best coin day Euro 73.90c on this beach.... coins were every where...not been hunted for some time, I was even finding oxidised coins in the dry sand...Most gold is out of Excal and my digging range... I did manage a 18k W/B and 9k pendant... Best Stainless Steel day and some silver rings and balled up chains.Click image for larger version.

    Thanks. I have flown out of Australia and SE Asia to Europe with detectors in my carryon luggage. The batteries I remove but leave in the same bag. My s/steel scoop I put in the hold luggage. Some of the time they want a closer look at the carryon, but I have never been refused or delayed.

    Thanks for the replies everyone! I detected for 220 hours on this trip, mostly in the water with Excal 10" and 8" coils. Most of the gold is too deep to recover. I was ending up with huge sand craters and just chasing collapsing side walls. Most of the gold came from rocky areas.
    Attachment 1866694Attachment 1866695 Just over 500 grams of silver... most has been in the water a long time. Click image for larger version.
