What Do You Make Of These Piles?

 Yer right Paul. But I've never seen it stack rocks in neat little piles. My previous post is the only logical explanation.

All right! All right! I concede! The wind made the piles- - - - but the wind came from a dry washer.

Could have been a screen off point. Dirt transported to another process point. I do it all the time. That is what it looks like when I leave an area.

If not the above, then it is most definitely a polar bear den (on vacation).

Freds correct, those are rake piles....

That was my very first thought that popped into my mind when they first popped into my view.  It's funny how I didn't even see them the first time around when camping nearly right on the spot.  The second time around it was almost as if my subconsciousness noticed there was something odd about their organization throughout the surrounding area.  I think what caused me to miss them in the first place was that they had weathered to nearly flush with the surrounding dirt.  There were about 17 to 20 of them in a 100 sq ft area.  I found another area removed about 1/4 mile from them that looked very similar, but only had 5 to 6 rock piles--again, without tailings or digs.

So, if they truly happened to be rake piles, all from about the same time period, how would you choose to go about testing the area?

I would be in cruise mode around the edges of that area.

 

As the area looks shallow to me. I would do what I said before but I would use a coil of the elliptical type for coverage as the good size pieces will come up with little problems but the smaller bits will be easier to hear with the narrower width of a elliptical than round coil of the same size. Wish you luck, from what you have said it looks like the previous prospectors were chasing scattered gold. So cover a lot of ground around the workings.

      1) Anyone have any advice and Best settings for the Minelab Equinox 600 for relic hunting like civil war relics buttons stuff like that? 2) Also when coin shooting for silver coins and gold coins anyone have suggestions or find there conventional or unconventional ways and programs better to locate Silver and gold coins? Like notching out vdis, or running it in beach in a field similar to Neil Jones program? 3) Also best settings on the beach for jewelry?

      "The proper threshold on hot ground, any ground type for that matter, is a nice and high full sound, stable and rock solid threshold that cannot be wavered on that ground type.. Allowing the highest sensitivity they can muster. 
      Causing lovely repeatable dropouts in the threshold on deep signals on heavy ground."
      Hello All.
      I have an old Minelab GT16000, and in the process of searching for Coils, came across a post(above) by "argyle" that suggested a completely different Threshold setup for some of the early VLF detectors including mine.
      Just wondering if anyone has used this procedure, as it is different to the manufacturer's instruction?
      Cheers.

      It has come to my attention when using my Apple iPad mini (with latest update btw) accessing manufacturer’s main site I cannot access support pages on site.  A work around for folks is to do a google search.  For example doing google search for Simplex+ manual one will see a good site that will get them to their destination for access to needed data.  It has been reported the same thing happens with use of android cell phone.  I have put a thread together elsewhere here in order to notify marketing rep Dilek of this issue.  http://www.dankowskidetectors.com/discussions/read.php?2,172246

      I have located two gold mines that I have access to after much research.
      one mine about 4 ft tall in the side of a hill and has a nice pile of quartz rock tailings pile. rocks are about 12" wide. Should I remove all of the larger quartz rocks to get  down to the smaller rocks before I hunt with my 800 using a six inch coil?
      the other is in the side of a creek bank about 2 feet high. No sign of tailings pile, so I guess just hunt the creek with my Equinox 800 and 6" coil in front of the mine and down stream and on both sides of the creek in case they had their washer equipment set up at that location.
      both sites are rather remote so should not be much trash in the area.
      thanks for any help.

      (Update... im not taking the ctx3030 and instead I’m buying a equinox800 and practice with that and take it to the digstock event.
      there has been some very good advice offered I  the comments... things that as a newbie I wouldn’t have considered.)
       
      I’m recently retired and decided to start some new hobbies, metal detecting is one of them.
      i bought a CTX3030 used at a great price from the president of the Ohio Detectorist association. It included the stock coil and a 17 inch. I’m still learning how to use it and so I basically dig every signal I get.
      my question is this... I’m going to travel to Chazy NY for DigStock 2020 and will be hunting relics and coins... in open fields.
      should I use the CTX3030 or should I also invest in a Garrett ATX and deepseeker for this event or should I take both?
      thoughts?

      I saw one of these for sale for basically $200 + shipping. Is that a good deal? What's the typical resale price (Fair Market Value) for a machine like that?
       
      Thanks!
