Hello everyone,

I am new here to this forum.

Recently my home town at my home country,  prospectors started to discover Gold nuggets in large sizes at the surface without digging it, see the attached email

The creek and valleys are so large that you can not cover by using a  handheld detectors. I did some search and came across two other types.

One is using a drone metal detector although the product is not out yet https://www.treasurehunter3d.com/dronerover and the other is long distance detectors upto 2km and 30 meters deep http://www.megalocators.com/en/  or http://www.imagelocators.com/index.php/component/virtuemart/long-range-locators/x-finder-gold-detector-long-range-locator-detail?Itemid=0  vidoe is 

https://youtu.be/kv6EmzH34Ao

I couldn't find review on the performance on the long range detectors, did any of you use it? or whether these are legit products that work?

Thank you

If you want a long range locator save yourself a lot of money and make a set of dowsing rods. The link I am providing best sums up my thoughts on long range locators...

Interesting 1st post,i of course i hope i am totally wrong but rather than a request for information,this seems more biased towards a spam type 1st post.Seems very specific on the links and videos.

 

Just my personal opinion of course :smile:

As moderator I am well aware of these issues and prefer new members be given the benefit of the doubt unless I alone decide otherwise. Therefore if anyone does have concerns as regards this sort of thing a PM to me directly is more appropriate than challenging a new members veracity in public. The difference between a welcoming forum and one that is not is subtle at times but I lean in favor of giving people a break, and links are not going to hurt anyone here as far as I can tell.

He asked about the product at the links so feel free to offer honest opinions about that. That is the actual topic being discussed on this thread.

Thanks.

LRL and other such devices are always controversial...I know there is no scientific evidence to support these devices. Not everything that happens is fully documented...

However, I am with Steve just make some Dowsing Rods...they don't need to cost hardly anything.

Now go practice...have someone hide things.  If you can find them alone, without help; great! 

If not get a good gold detector and work your way to the gold...

You say the area is too large to cover with a detector...how are they finding the gold...?

Hi Fred,

Thank you for your comment.

There are a chain of large rocky mountains which are parallel to the  sea and is  around 80km away from the sea The valleys formed by running rain waters that comes from Mountains  is the place where the gold nuggets are found. This running water eventually enters the  sea. It is believed the main Gold ore is somewhere upstream but with such distance of 80km it is a large area.

Welcome to the forum! Sounds a great place to swing detectors to me, unless there is a modern day gold rush going on there and you're trying to beat the others to the gold.  I've seen those long range detectors claiming they find diamonds and all sorts of things, best to be avoided I think.  If they really worked, it would be a game changer... but the game hasn't changed since they hit the market :biggrin:

The chinese have come up with some real fancy ones, this one does Diamonds, Gold, Silver and Copper all for under 300 USD. it goes 800 meters range with 14 meter depth :laugh:

This one can detect up to 1km! and note on the unit, made in the USA

Yea, right! I believe you.

Avoid them at all costs.

Sounds good to me, start out detecting the smaller shallower creeks up higher and work your way into the larger ones. If the gold shed from high up in the mountains where those smaller creeks first flatten out, that will be a likely place to find the gold. Will probably take years with a PI or ZVT detector with coils to suit the environment, but if the golds there you`ll have a good time.

      In light of the recent release of the Minelab Equinox, and expected release of competitive products I've noticed various posts across the Internet of tests/reviews/comparisons of detectors on fresh and saltwater beaches with "Black Sand".  But there is only a 50/50 chance that the beach "Black Sand" you are looking at is iron bearing "Black Sand".  The other possibility is that it is plant matter that has decayed and been ground into fine powder by wind and wave action.  Those in areas where Bog Iron is produced or those Southern Red Clays have to deal with sands that are iron bearing but not necessarily Black in color.  Some of the hottest sands I've ever seen were Purple in color.  To know whether the "Black Sand" is the bad kind(iron bearing) you need to test it, a simple magnet can help or a detector with a ground type meter.   Unless a tester/reviewer has verified the black beach sand as iron bearing I would be skeptical of the results.

      Well,
      Just joined this wonderful forum. I was trying to decide on my first Detector and found a Deal I couldn't pass on MetalDetector.com. Took the plunge on a Fisher F70 bonus pack with 11" & 5" coils, Headset, carry bag and some other stuff. $475. I thought that was a good deal. Wasn't planning on spending that much on my first one so i hope it works good enough to find some nice small nuggets! We have a camping trip planned in Sept. in the Sierra Nevada's so I can't wait! Probably do some testing at or near home before the trip just to get a feel for it. Any tips on settings for around / in Streams? Here's a newbie question for you, if the coils are supposed to be waterproof, does that mean i can submerse them in shallow waters to detect? I'm hoping i can along the shores. REALLY itching for my Detector to get here now! Good Hunting! 😎

      Hey there peops, i have a Nokta Fors CoRe with  13x11web coil ,9x5web coil and a 4x4 coil, and i also have a pinpointer.
      I haven't found any gold with this machine,, but on a test nugget it does register/ give a signal.
      My question i ask is , can i fit other coils to the machine that will be better for finding small nuggets ??
    • By KOOPDOG50
      Hi , everyone ,, koopdog here, thanks for the add.
      I prospect for gold mostly and have found around 40 grammes, both by using a sluice in my creek and with a detector.
      I am currently using a Minelab SDC2300, and also own a Nokta Fors CoRe .
      I aim to learn tips and hints from more experienced hunters.
         Cheers .

      I would like to understand how Depth Detection works with the Nox (I assume same for other detectors) and discover tips for improving depth detection. I've only been detecting for 1 year, using a Garrett ACE 150 with a dig-it-all attitude essential for beginners. I've now moved to the awesome Nox 800 and want to be more discriminatory in my digging. The Ace depth detector always gave a reliable indication of depth, each spade accurate to 2". I'm not so sure about the NOX, it may be that because it is detecting at such great depth (I'm finding down to at least 15")  that more items seem to be >8" or maybe this is a weakness? Anyway it is a brilliant machine, by far the best choice for someone like me moving from beginner. 
      So a) what is the physics behind depth detection?. (timelag measurement?, phase change?)
      b) what tips for deducing depth? (I've picked up on the triple tone for items very close to the surface, is when the nox shows 5 spades and the item is 6"down I find annoying)

      Hi, I'm looking for tips about how to tackle high trash areas specifically when you get multiple varying signals in an area. Often I'm detecting in Orchards or pastures right next to farms that would have seen activity going back hundreds, maybe a thousand years. Or my back garden an ex-orchard in a rural village which over the years has been cultivated, had bonfires, lots of activity. In these areas I get many different signals all within a few inches of each other. Generally using P2 or F2, (I like 50 tones) and I prefer not to change any other settings, I dig out any stable solid figures/tones from say 7 onwards if they have no low tones/numbers when I test with All-metal mode. Having done that the remaining signals often are a mix of good signals, some good bouncing around, and negative signals. I'm trying to detect the "shape" of the signals, aiming to identify good positive signals that should be dug, but not sure about the rest. If I see a good solid signal say in the teens say with a -negative number when tested in all metal, should I dig in the hope of say a coin sitting over/next to ferrous, or should I leave alone? Often in the past, I've had a dig it all mentality to gain experience, but frankly in these areas that is not practical as I may just as dig randomly and see what's there with a pinpointer and not use a detector at all!
