  6. Coiltek mono elite 14" finds

    Nice gold! Hopefully your over a patch. That would be sweet Tom H.
  7. Hey all: Welp had to get a new coil and after talking with AJ and Mike F. about the evolution I decided to do it. My old coiltek 14 elip was giving me fits with falsing and such. Doctered it up as much as I could but after 5 yrs of banging it around....it was tired. Rob fixed me up with a good deal and I had it within 2 days THANKS!! Im loven it. It is a LOT more sensitive and seems to do a lot better on black sand and ironstone. It is a wee bit heaver than my old 14 elip, but exercise and a bungy will take care of that. Went back into a area ive pounded and let others hit. I got more trash out of the main wash that I missed before. The small nails were 8" deep and the 3/4 X 3/4 piece of steel was at 1 1/2 feet deep...loved digging that one! Now for the gold. They look like brothers But, they were actually up on the hill sides out of the main wash. Two washes separating them. One was 3 feet up a 70 deg. slope and one was in a really small drainage that I never bothered to detect. Hit everything around up and down from where I found them. Just some loners. A good friend and I went up there last week and he gave me all kinds of tips/hint/help/geology advice/ head exploding....... Told me to hunt the one side of the wash. They are up there. But dang....hunting hillsides is hard! Total in gold was 3 grams. Enjoy! Tom H.
