    GPX 6000

    Anyone considering a 6000? Curious to your thoughts on this new machine? I seen a video on what this thing is supposed to do and i was extremely impressed. It's main purpose for me will be locating big pieces of float copper. I currently am using my equinox 800. Deepest hunk so far was 3 1/2 ft deep. Iit was the size of a basketball.

    It looks really cool I saw the commercial on the Minelab Youtube Channel. Maybe one day I'll find a big enough gold nugget to pay for one.

    I ended up buying a new/used 5000 off a guy who never even used it. Still learning it but have found over a 150 hunks of float copper with it the first week. Biggest is only 60 pounder.

    what is the value of the native copper you are finding? is it a percentage of the melt weight or does it have intrinsic value ? Ive never heard of this before, very interesting. Ive always head people touting about how they sell their gold with quartz for full weight, but ive never been that fortunate, the buyers scoff at even the slightest quartz on my gold, and 85-90% is the best i can get even for big nuggets. I guess my question is, who buys your finds, and why are they buying them? Thanks, and pics please, ive never seen native copper, let alone a 60lb chunk of native copper.

    Gold with Quartz imbedded is considered " Specimen Gold " and is more desirable and valuable ! The buyer that scoff about the Quartz are wanting to buy it cheaply in my opinion ! For me , I'd pass on this kind of buyer !

    If you google "gold nuggets for sale" you will see examples of asking prices for natural gold nuggets. Those sellers likely acquired some of those nuggets from people like you, at similar prices you are receiving*, and are marking them up for their profit....they are middlemen. Find a way to sell directly to collectors and you can probably reap that extra profit.

    Good luck.

    *The prices you are getting is about the net spot value by weight of the gold after smelting, refining costs, etc. are deducted....But placer nuggets and some quartz gold are considered specimen quality by collectors in many instances thus warrent/demand a higher final sale price.

    Notify the Gold Prospector club's around you that you have gold for sale ! Gold Bay (Dave)is a good location / person to buy real gold nugget's ! He even has / had video's on how to see if the nugget is real or home made.

    its reasonable to assume they are making a profit off me, how much? i dont know. It is convenient to have a place to cash it in whenever Id like, and of course im not going to get top dollar given the circumstances, but it is worth it to me since i dont have to wait, deal with low ballers, get hammered with fees, lost packages in shipping (yes it happened).

    100% agree. I would only use an auction for something extraordinary...Like the butte nugget. I think it sold for like 400k. I wonder if the finder got 300k? I'm just throwing numbers out there but I'm sure the middle man isn't cheap. The local spot here is fair. Gold is usually never 24k pure. 80%-90% of spot works fine for me. I'm not finding multi-pound nuggets yet
