Small Nugget found after Field Instructions

03 February 2016 - 06:11 PM

Hello All, 


  Well the forums have been down.  Here is a small nugget, 2.6 Grams I found after field instructions last weekend.  Nothing impressive, but a few grams here and there add up.  


Found with the GPZ 7000. 



Forum Back Online - Going to be Updated Soon

03 February 2016 - 04:10 PM

Hello All,


   Received dozens of emails and phone calls that the forums went down last night.   I guess I never received an email notification that my credit card expired on file with them ......


You might see a small outage again on the forums, as I'm having them updated to the latest version.  Please let me know if you have any issues once the new version is installed.  


Thanks for all the head-ups when it went down. 


Great to be back online.

2016 Field Instructions Started, 4 Customers, 2 find gold!

31 January 2016 - 03:46 PM

Hello All,


   Well, it's that time of the year when customers start calling and scheduling their field instructions.  If you purchase a Pulse Induction metal detector (regardless of brand) from Rob's Detectors, we will take you out in the field for a day and train you on that unit for FREE.  This including a full day of training, conducted on private claims and you keep anything you find! 


If you're looking to get training on your unit and purchased elsewhere, we charge $300 for an entire day.  We treat you just like you purchased the unit from us! 


This weekend a trainer and I conducted field instructions with 4 customers.  Two of them had Minelab SDC 2300's, the others had GPX 5000's.  We broke into groups, spent a good portion of the day on instructions and then some detecting in the field.  Two of the customers found gold nuggets, the other two guys due their fair share of targets throughout the day.  Overall, the weather was awesome and everyone left with a big smile.  


Here is a short email from one of the customers -


Hey Rob,

Just a note to thank you very much for your training session on my detector and allowing us to detect on your claim.  I learned a lot about my detector as well as the most productive ways to find gold with the detector.
I didn't find any gold until after you left. I started detecting along the road and ended up down by the gate where I found a very small piece of gold under a bush. The piece was much smaller than the one from Alaska that I used to tune my "vlf" detector. It was  the best find I could hope for with my SDC, because, if I can find tiny pieces with it, I can find the larger ones.
Thanks again for spending the time to help us get started with our detectors. 




We promise if you purchase from us, we are going to spend the entire time with you, get you trained on your unit and hopefully you can walk away with a nugget to boot.  Beyond that, we offer unlimited support beyond the sale.  You can email, call, text or chat with us here on the forums for support.  


Here are a few pictures of the customers during the outing -

Recent Gold Nuggets from Various Placer Locations

25 January 2016 - 05:47 PM

Hello All,


   Haven't been out too much, but here are 5 small batches of gold nuggets from various placer locations here in Arizona.  All the gold was found with my Minelab GPZ 7000.  I also found one of the smallest nuggets to date with the GPZ shown below.  The piece is .6 grains (480 grains to a Troy ounce).  I'm pretty convinced the GPZ can find gold just as small as the SDC 2300 now with the settings I'm using.  The SDC just makes the pinpointing portion much easier with the small coil.
