These are from a week-long hunt with the CTX 3030.  Total is 1.55 ounces–26 grams of 18k.  I also used the CTX 3030 with the 17″ coil.  This coil got me down to gold that had been in the ground so long that it came out green.

Thought I would put up a picture of this great custom scoop that Chuck from Sunspot Tooling made for me.  It’s a 720i, extreme angle with an aluminum / wood travel handle and a Stout’s Backsaver grip.  This scoop has gotten me a lot of gold –even in digs that others have given up on.  […]

Minelab Excalibur Training Day

These guys are top notch pros and once they had the Minelab Excalibur basics down proceeded to recover gun parts from the nearby lake that allowed a murder case to proceed.   FYI, in police dive team slang a body in the water is called a “package.”  I like to think the picture resembles where you have […]

  Interchangable coils for the Minelab Sovereign / Minelab Excalibur.  I’ve heard a lot of good things from top hunters about how stable the “blue tubes” Excaliburs are–especially for use with big coils. John at Minelab did a great job refurbishing this one for me that now has w/p connectors (Bulgin Mini Bucanneer)  to run all […]

Minelab Excalibur 11 Modification

I’ve gotten good results with Coiltek WOT coil in different applications and wanted to have one available for the Minelab Excalibur but not have to use it all the time as they can be hard to swing in fast water.
