2 Replies and 5340 Views Georgia Metal Detecting HELP  5340  2 Started by  peluffo Hi, I recently bought a Metal Detector, Can somebody tell me some places where actually we could use the metal detector in Georgia. I live in the Dunwoody area.  I was some days ago in the GPAA Gold Mine located in dahlonega but I thinks that is just for panning and not for use the Metal Detector. I'm new to this hobbie but I wish to use my new toy I really appreciate any help. I'm interested in gold, silver and any antique hunt. Thanks, Isilio

I will be taking my new Garrett AT Gold and Garrett ATX Deepseeker. I am very excited. I have all of the tools, a ton of 'research' knowledge but zero experience in Nugget Shooting and I have never been to the Gold Basin. I will be going alone, setting up my tent and camp area and begin shooting for some yellow stone... So there is the extent of my plan so far LOL... I have just over a month to have a much better plan. So I thought I would ...

10 Replies and 9223 Views Entry level Metal Detectors  9223  10 Started by  ScooterMcGavin Hello All,   I purchased a fisher F2 a little over a year ago and have loved using it. It has been a great first metal detector, easy to use, and very effective on many types of targets. It, however is ineffective at detecting gold. I have tested it a couple of times and it has failed in locating a small vial of gold (maybe a gram)  on the surface, or even a ring at depth beyond 2'.  I've been forced to realize I made the wrong choice in metal detectors if I am looking for someth...

3 Replies and 9067 Views Bedrock: target or hot  9067  3 Started by Noisy bedrock is always an issue when metal detecting, especially with a VLF. However, sometimes that noise you hear can be a target. You have to learn the characteristics of the bedrock you are working through trial and error and sometimes you just have to break some up to determine if the signal you are getting is just hot rock or a valid target. One useful way to check certain types of bedrock is with a magnet. Out here in Az. we have lots of bedrock in certain areas that is loaded with magne...

COULD IT BE A NEW METEOR CRATER DISCOVERY???  5860  4 Started by  Dixie_Desert_Digger Here is the story so far... So on one of my recent hunts I decided to hit a desert area that is void of any signs of historical activity or even recent activity for that matter. Anyway, I had quite the mishaps and my hunt went sour before I got any real time into it. Anyways, a couple nights later, I was on Google Earth digitally exploring the area again which I often do after having visited the area and getting to know it a bit. I was looking at the area searching closely for signs of old Wagon...

I have seen much to do with an old bump falsing issue as well as falsing at the end of a swing.

I did message Garrett and a few dealers on it. I am wondering if anyone has any 'recent' experience using a 'recent' version of the ATX and...
