The Man From Bulgaria.

Well it's been a long time in the making, but with Marianne's hard work and persistence with our government departments.
We finally have our good friend Slavi here in Australia to do some gold hunting.

We've been nailing the usual feed of Nano gold, but the other day Slavi or Mr Slavi as I call him nailed a beautiful 12.5 gram nugget, these moments will be treasured by him and us just to see that look on his face.

Weve been testing other coils the new 6" mono and also I have a proto type 15x8 DD.
this coil came in very handy the other day after Slavi had picked up he's pride  and joy.

I slipped on the new DD coil, and worked with iron reject on to eliminate some of the iron Junk.
Well it paid off I nailed a 3 gram nugget. Still more work to do in this area.

Detech are going to send me an 8"DD coil for testing this will be handy for those tight places, and will give the older machines another option.

The testing continues with the 8" mono and the 6" mono selling well more developments to come stay tuned.

The 12.5 grammer.

Detech 8" Mono

Well this 8" coil is still amazing us,

Marianne hijacked the coil from me today and put it through its paces, and picked up 5 nuggets from an area we've both been working for years these nuggets should not have been there, or so we thought.

These nuggets were all dug at reasonable depth as seen in the photo.

This will be a great coil which will enable some colour for the day, if there is small gold around this coil will sniff it out!

The larger target on the coil is a small sprocket or gear I would think from an old time peace.

Another happy customer,always a great day when you find gold, even more satisfying when you thought it was all gone.

I've finally done it

Well this new 8 " round mono is truly amazing I've broken my record,
And managed to pull the smallest nugget I've ever detected.

Yep that's  right , your not seeing things it weighs a mere .026 of a gram.
Any one can find big gold,I'm sure the old timers would have been proud of this effort .

This new coil is so smooth and quiet in operation not to mention sensitive.

The new coil is listed on the website and now available.

Product testing

Well times have been busy with so many new and exciting products to test.
Testing of the new 18" mono open design coil as pictured above, has been very successful, resulting in recent listing on our site, This coil is still sensitive to sub gram nuggets and packs a punch on depth.

Totally new to Detech is the 8" mono show below, strong mount and robust construction, to handle the knocks and bumps when working an area hard to clean up those small nuggets left by others.

This coil will be listed very shortly and will be priced favorably to compete.

We've also been testing the Detech EDS Winner & the EDS Plus 2. Both of these are VLF machines.
Which have proven to be great contenders in this part of the market. The Winner is full auto ground balance , a true switch on and go machine, complete with nugget hunting settings and discrimination for coin shooting.
The EDS Plus 2 has manual ground balance in all metal mode, and an auto mode as well.
Managed to pick up 2 small speci's while testing.

Both of these machine will be listed on our web site soon,

Well stay tuned as Detech still have more new coils to come, a new mid sized elliptical mono  , and a large elliptical Mono.

Detech 15 x 8 Mono

Well had a chance to reacquaint my self with the 15 x 8 Mono , after some testing of other coils over the last few weeks.

With great reliable results and we still have more new coils to be added to the Detech line which suit the GPX,GP,SD, range of machines.

The 15 x8 Mono would still have to be one of the favourite coils to use great sensitivity and manoeuvrability .

These were a couple of finds for the day the smallest nugget is •05 of a gram the other was •15 of a gram both coming from some old workings.

The other items are buttons which still have some gold plating visible.

Nice historical items.

Stay tuned will soon be testing Detech VLF machines in the field.

Detecting trashy areas using Detech SEF

I found an area a couple of weeks ago and picked up a couple of small nuggets.
But the iron trash in the area was enough to make me walk away, it drove me nuts and some of the targets were deep and you have to dig until they're exposed.

This last weekend, I decided to give the SEF DD 15x12 coil a go, so back to the trashy area I went.
I set the machine up in soil timing normal, coil DD and iron reject set , and my day began.

The machine and coil were doing what they should with rejecting the iron.  For the first hour or  two I checked the targets, so I could see how reliable these setting were.  All targets that were rejected were iron, some targets needed to be exposed a little, allowing the iron reject to work, some small boot tacks fooled the GPX until they were in the scoop.

I was still picking up lead shot as a clear signal which gave the confidence that small nuggets would not be missed.

Nice feeling walking away from junk targets, some holes were still dug down until the reject took over.
Way better to dig a 300 mm hole than a 600mm hole!!!

So much of the trash was just beneath the surface.

The gold was there, I managed to pick up some small nuggets around .2 of a gram each.
Then the nugget in the photo, a nice 3 grammer came along, it was a loud clear signal , I'm sure it was left there, because it could easily have been mistaken for trash with a mono coil.

Great day out!  I'll certainly be doing more in the future with the SEF coil.   So easy to pin point with as well, not to mention the depth from this coil is impressive, also quiet and stable over this mineralized ground even running in normal timings and still sensitive enough to pick up the small ones.

I've got more areas in mind for this coil.....

Depth testing the 16.5 & 18 Detech closed design Mono coils

We took both coils out to the local test patch with some targets of known weight,
This area has high mineral content and would make it near impossible to run in Normal soil timing, without constantly rebalancing.

The targets selected were a 15 gram muscat ball, 31.6 gram muscat ball and a 13 oz lead target.
Both coils were run through the various soil timings, the best of these on this ground were, Enhance,
Fine Gold, & Sensitive Smooth.

If you could live with the speratic ground noise, these targets all boomed in normal, but this would surely drive you mad!

The 15 gram target was easily seen at the 300 mm depth with all three timings, the best and most positive response coming from Enhance, and Fine Gold.

It was a no brainier with the 31.6 gram target at 300mm. Tried this target at 600 with no response.

With the 13 oz target in place at 600 both coils could easerly see it in all of the above mentioned soil timings. Enhance and Fine Gold were the best again, providing great stability over the surrounding ground.

I was able to lift the coil approx 150 above the ground and still a positive response.

That's a deep hole to dig!

The only other test hole was at 1200 mm. This was well out of range for this size target.

All positive results with these coils, I just need to get out there and swing them over the ground.
