General Detecting Chatter / Re: Biggest Myth - Minelab CTX 3030

You guys are right when you talk about a detectors "language".

In the last 11 years I've only ever used Excals in the water and thought I'd learnt everything there was to learn about them years ago.

And yet, every year I find I better understand what its trying to tell me.

I hope, but don't really expect to become truly fluent in Excaliburese on day.

 If you put two top rated hammers in 2 x carpenters hands to build a structure, does the quality of the structure depend more on the hammer or the carpenter?


;D ;D Don't need "top rated hammers" Dutchy...(you're talking to an x chippie mind you!!!!)....a cheap hammer in the hands of a good carpenter...that is where the expertise is revealed....blindfold Ringa with her "toy" Cibola, and I reckon she could match that video...She would be able to tell there was a 925 silver under those iron nails...even if no-one else could hear the subtle audio differences.;D...............................blindfold Ringa and give her a hammer....(any hammer...)...now that's a different story :o  ......      As you suggest...Time spent with a machine is the key to unlocking any detector's language

Anybody think to put a CTX  and a Deus  side by side over the same ground, and compare how they respond to the same targets?

Its been done hundreds of times I imagine. I think there would be a number of videos out there.  Similar to the Holden Ford debate.  Don't expect a straight answer.  If you put two top rated hammers in 2 x carpenters hands to build a structure, does the quality of the structure depend more on the hammer or the carpenter?

The key is getting a decent machine that works for you and actually put some time in (experience) to learn it. You should get to the level where that machine talks to you. If you don't know what I mean by that then spend more time with a machine until it does. Just my opinion and have fun at the end of the day.

When I used to live at Vaughan Springs I used to go trecking in the gullies out the back of the caravan park and there was an area that trail bike riders used to have a bit of fun at.  One section had a couple of humps along the trail that they used to jump over with a flat section between them. One particular year I went for a treck through the area and the spot in between the two humps was opened up with maybe a 15 foot drop large enough to drop a small car in.  I guess you just never really know whats under your feet sometimes.

Used Equipment for Sale or Wanted / Re: What is a Fisher Gold Bug 2 worth ?

I reckon $50 postage is a bit hopeful. 4.8lb shipping weight in a 22 x 12 x 6" box. Cheapest I can find works out to USD$68.50

There is a supposedly new one on ebay Australia at the moment however the sellers name and feedback score doesn't inspire confidence in the item's authenticity.

According to Wikipedia the very first recognized biomining system was published in 1951 by a Kenneth Temple PhD.

A great story. I wonder why the people concerned where never notified when they were supposed to be. Good to see the ring is home again.
