3 Replies and 17939 Views Minelab GPX-5000  17939  3 Started by Let's say I have up to $4000 to spend. I am wondering if there is any reason NOT to buy a GPX-5000. I understand that it would not have the ability of tiny size detection of the GB2, or the depth of the GPZ, but those obvious limitations aside, any thoughts I would be using it everywhere but in water. Thanks!

Very fast signal response and an excellent detector in even the trashiest of areas. It's discrimination is unsurpassable. Well worth the 800$. And then to boot the stock coils is a little champ getting into those cracks and crevices. Lots of gold to be found with this detector. Always buy a new detector from a certified dealer so you know your getting a quality machine. I purchased mine on eBay for 800$. Then I purchased a pair...

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

10 Replies and 10947 Views Entry level Metal Detectors  10947  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 9819 Views Bedrock: target or hot  9819  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...

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.

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.
