New 18" and 16.5" Mono

Off, out into the gold fields today to test the new closed design Mono coils 18" & 16.5".

Both of these coils performed faultlessly, running in Fine Gold, and Enhance.
Looked for some deep ground on areas previously detected.

These coils were both happy to be skidded on the ground, not suffering from bump at all,
And I deliberately looked for rocks and scrub to try them out.

These coils tested very sensitive to small gold.
I surprised myself with a 1 grammer, taken from about 160 mm!

Continued on covering some new ground. Both coils were easily ground balanced and running in fixed.
The occasional re balance over some patches of highly mineralized ground and then off again

Excellent stability, only needing to chase the manual tune up or down 1 or 2 numbers to settle the odd case of EMI.

Ended up with 97 grams of lead shot and muscat balls for the day!  Plenty of targets dug. Pity they weren't all gold.  :(
The largest muscat ball was 31.6 grams and the smallest shot was .3 all coming from varying depths

All in all, a great day and plenty of confidence with the new additions to the Detech range.

And I managed to pick up some nice test targets what a range of lead!!!
We will be doing some more testing at the test bed, where we can test known targets at set depths.

Stay tuned.

Testing Coils

Hi guys

Have been doing some testing of a range of Detech coils .
At a test area which provides easy testing of various size targets at different specified depths.

This area is set up with horizontally bored holes into the mineralized soil.
The best surprise came from the performance of the SEF. DD coils.

These coils were able to run in normal timing over this ground  very quietly, compared to mono coils which were noisy over patches of mineralization, which would drive you mad constantly balancing.

Mono coils had to be ran in special or enhance,to enable them to run quietly.

We were using a 13 oz target at 600 mm, it was hard to pick this out with a Mono but the SEF coil
Was a booming Dig Me signal.

Interesting what have we been walking over it makes you think.

Back to Victoria and the cold

Well back at Daisy Hill
Wow what a change in climate.

Still extracting spinifex from hands legs and other unmentionable areas youch.

Have been doing some interesting trials with the Detech SEF coils comparisons against the mono coils.

Stay tuned for some interesting finds.
