10 Replies and 8392 Views A beginner's question  8392  10 Started by I'm very new to using my Garrett AT Gold, or metal detecting in general for that matter, but I had an interesting thing occur that I'm hopeful someone might be able to explain. I was down at the Nancy's Gold claim and thought I would try out my metal detector.  There is some bedrock that is exposed on the claim and I wanted to swing over it to see if there might be anything in the cracks or in the area I could pick up.  I began getting some hits in the 90's plus, but there is only bed...

0 Replies and 4948 Views Garrett at pro  4948  0 Started by  Elliott Just got the at pro. I love it. It sure is a step up from the bounty Hunter I was working with before. So far I've only found trash with it, but only used it for a day in Phoenix. The ground here in Illinois is too frozen to dig. I'm heading back to Arizona next week though.

2 Replies and 6909 Views Detecting fine gold with a detector.  6909  2 Started by  Well, I have been told that you can't do it and in most cases that is true, but there is an exception that has worked for me. What makes it possible is that fine gold 'bunches' up on or under rocks in dry washes during the spring runoff from mountain deposits. I have used a  Surfmaster PI detector to locate find gold.  Method: Detect in the washes. When you get a faint signal, carefully pick up the rock and wipe it off IN A ZIPLOCK BAG.       &n...

5 Replies and 6615 Views Looking for a mentor  6615  5 Started by  rpontius I purchased a GPX5000 last year. I've been to a 3 day training seminar, and plan on attending one more this summer. I'd like to find someone who wouldn't mind sharing some knowledge (GPX has been a little intimidating). I'm more than happy to cover fuel expenses and what not in trade for some valuable field training. I'm located in Boise, Idaho and don't mind travelling, even to eastern Oregon if need be. I'm a good listener and very motivated to become proficient with a  GPX.

19 Replies and 12943 Views What's that sound?  12943  19 Started by Hi All, Thanks for reading. I am curious about what sounds you listen for on your detector when you are searching for nuggets I use a Fisher Gold Bug pro myself, but I am still searching for that first nugget. I thought maybe if other people can explain what sounds they listen for while nugget shooting that it will help other people like myself who is still learning.
