More Than 110 Grams of Gold Found With My GPX 5000

hello to all!

I'm here to share another success story with my GPX 5000 with Coil 15 x 12" Elliptical Mono Commander and my PRO-FIND 25.

More or less in the middle of the second week of February 2014, was working in the same mine that a week before I found a 130 grams nugget, when I came across a soil with a lot of garbage, ( nail, cans, iron, etc. ... more gave me a hunch)

Then changed the configuration to high trash, and continued detecting, dig more than 20 ferrous objects came the first reward a nugget of 23.7 grams approximately 35 cm deep…

Soon after less than two meters away took a nugget of 6.5 grams, and in the same hole and 3 more nails and a piece of aluminium can, my detector reaches many deep targets, then in the same place, I noticed a sign so I dug about 10 centimeters and realized that target was too deep , then kept digging, digging roughly one meter deep, I saw it at the bottom of the hole my reward, a beautiful nugget 79.5 grams.

I am very satisfied with my GPX 5000 and its accessories, I recommend it to everyone.
