Lunk,

All of the reviews I have seen so far on the Monster have been about it going over 'worked out' patches or previously worked patches to test its sensitivity to small gold.  (Going to where gold has been found before.) That is ok, I guess.  When given the task of testing a new detector you can't just 'dial up' a new patch.

I've held one of the Monsters.  I would use it in places like where you went but also in more difficult to reach 'spots' just from a weight and ergonomic perspective.  Some places where we don't look for gold is because it is too difficult taking a heavy and big detector with us.  (I guess someone could have gone there with a GB2 or a Pro like Steve did on the Alaska tailing piles.)

This is what I wonder.  How does this detector react to a big piece of gold?  Big is a relative term but let's say anything over 5 grams.  Did you plant any test nuggets like that?

I found the Gold Monster 1000 to be extremely sensitive to a wide range of nugget sizes and types of gold, with a definite edge on depth in mineralized ground - for a VLF machine, anyway.

I should also add that when up close and personal with a large metal object, the Monster emits an overload alarm similar to that of the Fisher F75...a surprising feature that I was not expecting.

Thanks for the great review.  Can't wait to get my hands on one for searching dredge tailings here where I live in Idaho..

This post started out being called A Monster Month.

What I'm wondering if we will see the Monster this Month of May. Somebody out there knows more about my question than being said. Just like May 8th before that nobody knew nothing and I think this wholes true again.

Chuck, have you ever been tail-gated by some one that thinks pushing will speed you up?  You didn't speed up and he didn't get anywhere faster; just heartburn...

I sympathize with your being out of patience but....Minelab won't go any faster and you won't get there any quicker...don't Worry be Happy!

What you say I know is true and I'll leave it at that.

 I do want you to know that is a great article you wrote for ICMJ. It was well written and great to see a picture of you. You telling the finding of gold too made the story complete.

Thanks

Chuck
