I've tried a few oddball things. The Gold Monster 1000 is a dedicated designed from the ground up gold prospecting machine. It can of course be pressed into service for other uses but like other ultrahot detectors it can actually be too sensitive to tiny items. That can be useful for hunting tot lots or a beach for micro jewelry but it does also mean every tiny bit of aluminum foil sings off loud and clear.

If a person owned one and wanted to give it a go for other uses, no harm done, but in my opinion very few people would want to buy a Gold Monster 1000 for anything other than gold prospecting.

Lunk, JP, Steve - during testing did any of you take any video of the GM in action on undug targets, speccies, etc?

I still have not been able to make myself go to the trouble yet of stopping and shooting videos. Frankly, it's just extra work

Ditto.
