0 Replies and 470 Views Goldbug 2  470  0 Started by  jessicapersonett@yahoo.com I know it's been said many times before, but I want to say it again, when MD'ing you really need to go slow and low. I was at the Vulture Bait claim last week, NW area, using a Goldbug 2 with a 6' coil and I was amazed on how much small and tiny trash targets I found (over 200). I saw a few folks out there using PI detectors (not sure how they were doing) I know they will go deeper than the GB2 and they will pick up the small gold too. But the amount of small trash targets I found I still believ...

6 Replies and 3503 Views What is the best pinpointer for gold prospecting?  3503  6 Started by  fotakis1@yahoo.com 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

6 Replies and 19447 Views Want to buy  19447  6 Started by  rkaupas@hotmail.com Wanting a metal detector, I often hear Equinox 800 is best starter. 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)

0 Replies and 1406 Views Detector coil test using gold bug pro and x terra 70  1406  0 Started by  pyrography10178@yahoo.com So I designed a test to see where under my coils I was actually detecting using bird shot as an example taped to a card with target lines. I made two videos of the test using two different styles of coils to help gpaa members and others with their detecting. I set up both detectors for general detecting. If I was going to be in one spot I would set up my detector hotter or more sensitive. Here are the links. Just copy and paste onto your search bar. https://youtu.be/2ghFniLuRnM https://yout...

3 Replies and 19359 Views Burnt River, Oregon  19359  3 Started by  jessicapersonett@yahoo.com 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.

3 Replies and 15722 Views Search coils  15722  3 Started by  texsmith2412@gmail.com Hey all Got a coil question for you guys. I've always done well in hard hit areas with a 8 inch coil. 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...

I have been so focused on my usual relic hunting since my last nugget shooting adventure in the Arizona Gold Basin last November (2016) that I am thinking a break from it will be nice. Frankly, I haven't paid any attention to the GPAA since my last gold hunt that I am not sure what if any changes have taken place... Did we ever get an online Claims Guide Any changes to the Gold Basin Claims or any new claims in between Go...

2 Replies and 1884 Views Tnx Walt.  1884  2 Started by  terry_cieszki@yahoo.com Recently, I talked to Walt Eason about the inaccurate Lat/Lon at the ADK in the MG. I also found a claim jumper and family up there. Walt suggested I handle such encounters by allowing the jumper to look and if he likes what he finds, join the GPAA club. That is a genius stroke of salesmanship, Walt. That is how I will handle future meetings. Tnx.  ╦╦Ç
