Hey all,

I got a signal at the base of a big old tree in the golden triangle the other day. It was about 15 metres from some diggings and where I found a 1.5 gram nugget! I dug under said tree and into the root area,then discovered the signal was coming from above the roots, not in the ground.I waved my pinpointed across the tree bark but got no signal, yet the detector gives a strong signal. So is it a bullet embedded in the tree, or can gold be found inside a tree?

It could be a lead shot that has been grown around like this one I found after cutting it open. It was a dead branch on the ground though that set my detector off, with no outside signs of a bullet hole... yikes

G'day Dubbles.

If you're using a GPZ 7000 then it will likely be the tree root itself. They are notorious for it.
If not, it is possible that gold could be interspersed between the roots if the tree has grown over the piece of gold. I always check fallen trees with roots exposed. You just never know.

Regards Axtyr.

Shotgun pellet would be my bet. Is it possible though? Nothing's impossible.

I am thinking shotty too,but must be deep inside tree as I can't get a signal on my pinpointer!..my plan of attack is to roll my equinox over i in gold mode and compare the signal with lead and gold!
