3 Replies and 488 Views What is the best pinpointer for gold prospecting?  488  3 Started by  Fotakis1 I have a Garrett carrot and a Falcon MD-20.  I just bought a Nox 800 and I am looking for a pinpointer that is sensitive to small gold.  My Garrett carrot is horrible for small gold and I don't want to bring my Falcon as it's not practicle as a mobile pinpointer.  Are there other mobile pinpointers that are good for small gold

My lifestyle and desired usage: *Travel the States fulltime in an rv. *Enjoy gold prospecting (pan, sluicing, etc.) *Would like to be able to search campgrounds, fields and beaches -- gold, coins, relics, etc. * Desert, fresh water, salt water, woodland all equally desirable search goals. Can one unit do it all What would you recommend (crossposted to multiple forums)

3 Replies and 18103 Views Burnt River, Oregon  18103  3 Started by  gpp7060 I'm going to be heading to eastern Oregon in August to do some metal detecting. I have a 3 day pass for the LDMA Blue Bucket camp and I'm going to check out the 3 GPAA claims on Burnt river. I'll be using a Goldbug2 and I'll be looking for the real small gold. Has any one metal detected on the Blue Bucket camp or any of the GPAA claims on Burnt river. I've had a hard time finding any information or comments from people metal detecting these areas.

I generally use a 14 inch coiltek elite and switch to a 8 inch mono commander from mine lab.It really rocks in tight places and on small gold the bigger coils miss.When out last week I switched over to the 8 inch in an area that was really tight with rocks and brush and it freaked out on me. I put it off as interference or something inside the coil cover ( which has tape on the seam). I too...

That is how I will handle future meetings. Tnx.  ╦╦Ç
