    sharp eye. i didnt want to brag about my new piece of equipment. sdc paid for itself in gold, so that is how i justified getting a 4500. what a machine. cant wait to go over some areas i did well with the sdc. went to the place i found that 1 ounce specimen, didnt find anymore gold, but 2 small nail fragments at incredible depth. i scoured that area with the sdc 10 times over. the gpx found 3 more targets in that small area. the 8 grammer was only an inch down, so any machine could have found it, but the half grammer was 7-8 inches under large cobble. pretty sure the sdc would have missed that one. sdc found these 4 pieces, only because it is easier to maneuver in the thick brush
    got the fever? dont scratch the itch.

    thats the ground to look for!!! i run mine in G-enhance-fixed-mono (mono coil of course) tweak the gain and stabilizer to suit. auto tune first, then ground balance. GB regularly, even if you cant hear it.

    Awesome gold!! If you don't mind me asking, are you on a mining claim, or just in open National Forest or BLM land? You give me hope that there are still good spots out there in CA for nugget shooting!

    all the gold i have found has been on unclaimed public land. there is still plenty of gold left for the next guy, we just have to look a little harder to find it

    So glad to hear that you're out there finding some of the "wild" gold on public land, none of that "pre-claimed" gold that's tied up all over North America.

    Nice to see you're learning how to use those detectors so well too.

    All the best,

    Lanny
