Yes sir I still have them. In fact I have 10 pairs of 9.5 size put back for myself in case they ever discontinue them. I never want to be without that boot.

No it was just a buried decomposing quartz reef. I dig crazy too when I'm not filming. But when I am trying to do instructional stuff I think it is important to go slow so both I and the viewer learns from the experience. I also like to have an accurate idea of just how deep the nugget really was.

Back in the days of the SD2100 and SD2200 if you had a nugget that sounded that loud it would have been a 1/2 ouncer. Now with these new fan dangled machines, 2 grammers sound like 1/2 ouncers.

Hi Doc,

Those are great videos, done from the first faint signal, to showing what can happen when you perform your search correctly.

I think all of us wonder how many of those faint signals we have swung our coils over, and passed them off as ground noise of some sort, salts from the critters, have actually been gold.

It may be that up there in the great computer "cloud" up there somewhere, there is a tally sheet for each of us, and when we cross over to the other side, we can see what could have been, in many ways.

I still am glad in an odd kind of way that I dug up that very faint signal, which, after digging what I would guess would be no less than 3 feet, to find a very nice galvanized pipe fitting. The downside to that is that I had to put all that dirt back in the hole, then try to move on. Had I not dug at that signal, I still would have been wondering just what I walked away from...

I noted the pick you used in the video, appears to be a "wingless walco", a mod that I had to do to my "serial killer walco" to cut down on the weight.

Yeah i remember my 1st target i got with my old 4k, i thought here we go i'm past 8" and its booming in, boy was i pissed
when out came a 22cal lead at just over a foot deep, but then it hit me! - WOW if this thing can pull that at that depth i'll have no
problems hittin the gold zone with it.

Pete

Cheers & Beers
