Found a 1/3 Ounce Gold Nugget at Depth with the GPZ 7000

16 March 2015 - 09:57 PM

Hello All,


   Finally found a decent one at depth, approx. 16-18 inches in highly mineralized soil with the new Minelab GPZ 7000.  I missed this bugger with the GPX 5000 a few years back.  The nugget weighed 1/3 ounce (7 dwts).  I found three other smaller ones at depth also before this discovery.   Hope you enjoyed.

Replacement GPZ/CTX Rechargeable Batteries

10 March 2015 - 01:11 PM

Hello All,


   Just got off the phone with Minelab Americas and accessories for the new GPZ 7000 won't be available until June.  :angry2:  Many have talked about extra batteries, as they would like to takes trips and have a spare.  Right now I got confirmation that the Minelab CTX 3030 Rechargeable Battery, part number 3011-0118 for $149.00 will work and will be a item for the GPZ when they are in stock.  


I snagged up all the last of these batteries, so if you need one, give us a call.   :P   I believe I have 10-12 in stock total, going to keep a few for myself.  This battery will last roughly 4 hours and is smaller and lighter.  


$155.00 and I will ship them US Priority Mail to your front door.  


Just a FYI. 

Customer GPZ 7000 Statement first day

09 March 2015 - 07:21 PM

Hello All,


   Here is one of my customers statements the first day out with his new GPZ 7000.  I can't mention names or location. 


Rob  All I can say is this is one hell of a machine. Most of these nuggets are at the 12-19 inch range. Hi Yield/Difficult/12 gain/ audio smoothing off.
The ground is still kind of frozen so I only can did so many targets. Not bad for three days. I have been over all of these with a 4500 and 16 nugget finder mono and more. One small piece (smaller than anything in the photo) I gave to my friend is not in the picture , but it was about 6 inches deep in very hot ground, loud and clear. A 4000 with a 14 nuggetfinder elliptical mono would not even hear it even when it was dug out. I am using the wireless and I unplugged my headphones to let him hear the nugget and it was very well defined.  Biggest is a half ounce. Total is 35.5 DWT  Sorry about the photos , I have not even cleaned the gold because I am busy digging.  This detector is top notch from the wireless , the battery and charger, to the carbon shaft to the audio and the impressive depth. The weight is not even an issue because I just press down on the ground anyway. I still don't even know the total capability of the detector.  Bruce Candy should not be doubted. Ever.
