Wife and I went to NSW to meet our new Granddaughter. Was a wonderful stay as we not only met our new granddaughter but both our eldest sons and their families. 3 granddaughters now. we only stayed there for a few days and left for victoria to try out my new detector. A Minelab SDC2300.
It was my first real chance to find some gold. We were booked in to stay at Laanecoorie Park for 2 nights.
We arrived there at 17:45 and I was out detecting by 18:30. found My first piece of gold by 18:45.
I continued on for about another 30 minutes and although the sun was not down the Mozzies drove us away. So back to the camp. Laanecoorie is no luxury resort but is wonderfully quiet and away from the rat race. I will use this Caravan park often I think.
Up and at it again before 8am. by 8:30 I found my second piece. The size was amazing. Not because how big it was but more how small.
While it would be nice to find an ounce nugget I was just amazed how easy it was to find this one. Wow this thing is sensitive. Well I went the rest of the day finding shotgun pellets and bullets. But I did go home happy with my first gold found with a detector. I can only hope to put the coil over the right spot more often.
