Loving the GPX 5000

I've been working in a area called Jicarilla new Mexico looking for gold this town has a lot of gold history. I was working around some of the old or what is left of it when I got a hit. I dug about about 8 inches down and found 5 diver dollars, 1 liberty, 2 pennies and 56 buffalo nickels. Maybe I'll find some gold nuggets.

First 17 gm Nugget

Pushing my old SD 2000 for weeks in a known area in WA for only a 1.7gm piece to show for it. Got my new GPX 5000 and in 5 days had my first piece over 17 gm and out of the hard cement. Man have I become fit, this sucker goes deep. The old SD 2000 could hardly penetrate the cement but the GPX 5000 opens up plenty of previously untouched ground for me. Here`s a pic of the old SD and a new friend I made, plus of course the 17 gram piece. Cheers.
