XP Orx Finding An Arizona Nugget (.60 Gram)

Recommended Posts


I hope you wont take this the wrong way, but the comically bad technique,  filming and target recovery,  combined with the shaking hands with the first hint of gold made the whole video charming and enjoyable.  Well done!

I'm lucky I even recorded it..... It sounded like a good target and loud enough,  but if you pay attention I pulled a 22 cal. casing which was together in the same hole ..... I wont't be posting anymore it's too stressful and hoping there is really gold there .....

My collection is growing these were found within the last 30 days ..... I hunt locations on Google Earth Pro ...... and use the MRDS ..... 

MRDS describes metallic and nonmetallic mineral resources throughout the world (select Arizona). Included are deposit names, locations, commodities, deposit description, geologic characteristics, production, reserves, resources, and references. The Six dirty nuggets in my hand came out of the same hole......

You get what you put in, and be determined..... I have been driving from The Bradshaw mountains to Rio Verde, to Horseshoe dam, to Prescott, to Wickenburg, to Tucson........ Been to many places in the last month ....... and at some places found nothing, but scout the area and even if all you get is trash.... Keep going ...... I dug over 150 targets one day, but then bada bin bada bum ......Nuggies

Thanks Fox

      Ok.. I've encountered some really tough ground conditions in a lot of areas that I hunt regularly. We are talking the red dirt with little shiny particles all in it that also has iron mixed in.  My Teknetics T2 struggles in it. My ORX struggles but will fish things out if you can stand the machine gun blips. I keep reading that the Equinox is more suited to deal with this. Now, I tried an Equinox 600 and found it to also cut up on certain plots of land, and the particular one I had was really horrible in iron. The tones also played tricks on my ears and I found the bleepity bling like sounds to confuse my caveman brain. The ORX has been a decent detector for me, and helped me rehabilitate myself after a car accident this year. However the tones in it are so close together that my ears can not often discriminate high from mid tone. There is no way to adjust it.
      Let's fast forward to today. The Equinox 600 does not have the adjustability of the 800 concerning tones, or at least that is my understanding. I walked away from my Equinox 600 ticked off that I could not seemingly bond with it. In my mind there was a single thought - how much better would the 800 be? For those of you that have especially used the XP ORX or the Teknetics T2 and also used an Equinox 800 I'm asking you, does the Equinox 800 do better in contaminated soil than my current 2? It is possible I will trade the XP ORX towards the EQ800. Would that be a "step-up" in capabilities? I've always found this forum and the people here honest and fair with no BS. So I ask you, would it be worth the extra money, hassle and such to truly give the Equinox 800 a chance even though I had a 600 and it didn't quite suit me. It is entirely possible the 600 I had may have had a fault of some type for all I know. And what of depth with the EQ800 vs the XP ORX?
      Reaching out to everyone in the know.

      Hello all,
      My soon-to-be-fiancée and I are heading to Arizona in a few weeks. She's a Science teacher and loves ALL things space. I want to take her meteorite hunting but have NO clue where to start. For the folks whose ever been to Holbrook, I have a few questions:
      1. Are there metal detector rental places nearby? We're flying in from Florida so I'd like to purchase/rent when we get there.
      2. If we drive into Holbrook, are there maps telling you where to go hunt? I'll continue to look for GPS coordinates before I go. I've read folks talking about railroad tracks...
      3. Are metal detectors the best way to find something? Can you "drag a magnet" or use the naked eye?
      Thanks for any replies. ANY help will be much appreciated.
      -Bobbo

      Tried a new area for metal detecting last week, Nothing AZ, it lived up to its name. Spent 5 days and came up with Nothing. Lots of  quarts, black sand looks good but no gold.

      I find myself also using the Orx more and more.
      I'm finding it pretty equal with the Equinox. The Orx is better hunting gold jewelry in Gold modes. Gold Kruzer 2nd for gold jewelry. Equinox 3rd.
      It doesn't false either. Better in iron.
      It's becoming my main detector.
      Detectors I have:
      Equinox 800 w/ 11" and 6" coils
      XP Orx w/ 9" hf coil
      Gold Kruzer w/ 9.5x5.5 concentric, 9.5x5 dd, 4x7.5 dd coils
      Lobo STmodded w/ 8" and 5.75" concentric coils
