July Catch Up

Happy July Prospectors!

Over halfway through the year already! Hopefully you have been able to get out between nasty weather and find a few bits and pieces to keep the passion burning, and if not, there is always next time.



We are nearly at the release date for the new Coiltek Goldhawk GPX6000 range of coils! The release has been pushed back to the 28th of July, however pre-orders are still going strong and that means there is still time to get your name down if interested.

10×5”     = $549

9”            =$579

14×9”     =$609


Also, the Nugget Finder Xceed GPX6000 coils will be released sometime this month also. We do not have a date yet for those, but the 8×6” will not be available until August/September. For those that have requested to be updated, you will receive an email once we have the release date from Nugget Finder.

8×6”       =$609 (August/September)

July Gold Gag:

St. Peter has some bad news for an oil prospector who appeared at the pearly gates of heaven. “you’re qualified for admission,” said St. Peter, “but, as you can see, the section for oil prospectors is packed. There is no way to fit you in.” after a moment, the prospector asked to say just four words to the present occupants. That seemed harmless to St. Peter, so the prospector yelled, “Oil discovered in Hell!” Immediately, most of the oil prospectors stampeded out for the nether regions. Impressed, St. Peter invited the prospector to move in and get comfortable. The prospector paused, saying “No, I think I’ll go along with the rest of them. There might be some truth to that rumour after all.”
