Beauty is judged by it's weight on gold and platinum rings right?

Nice finds!

Why is all the gold in California Ha Ha , I'm jealous, Northern California is not only beautiful but it has gold too!! I haven't found that wonderful color in about 2 years. It's kinda like fishing, If you don't fish for the fish your looking for you just might not find it. I think you just gave me the inspiration to focus on the yellow stuff. Great finds!!! and post some photo's of the scenery. It's been quite awhile since I've been there.

It also has the trash of >100.000 old timers  buried. Most places don't even have a clean area where you can put down your detector without your headset blowing off your ears. The GPZ is great in finding those beautiful sounding deep targets, which turn out not seldom to be large pieces of mining equipment junk left behind >>100 years ago. Of course, unearthing this junk will often take you > 2 feet of digging, which makes this even more fun. 

Don't get me wrong. I like it up here. The Sierra's are beautiful and there are spots where you find gold. But for the most part I use my SDC and focus on bedrock. My GPZ I use more in the desert (NV, Southern-CA, AZ). For really hopeless areas only the GM1000 with iron meter allows for some hunting fun.

The wife and I spent a night at a small town beach area back in mid Feb...we brought our detectors just for fun...not my first pick as it's cold and windy most of the time with not many people  but my wife likes these areas north of Petaluma as she grew up in that area...Lisa was learning her new Nox 800...she found a few coins and lots of trash...I got lucky as I did not expect to find a gold ring...at first I thought it was 10K but it acid tests 14K like it's stamped....not the prettiest ring but gold is gold....the little one is silver.... some lady and her 5 year old daughter were on their hands and knees watching as I sifted it out of the sand...they were as surprised as I was..

      Went back again to lake last week w the Tarsacci, managed to find another small child’s gold ring again. This one was down at least 6” and sounded very good. I’m getting a chest mount for my iPhone, so I promise my next video will be better!

      Seen a opening to get out today but just not the right spot for the "AQ' yet. Come winter I see the "AQ" getting a real good work out here. Today I took the excalibur for I was not sure what conditions I would be walking into. Working in close first nothing..... but Iron and trash..dug a few pieces and decided to go deep, still not a lot of targets. Slowly working my way deeper and parallel to the beach about 600 foot out...shoulder deep I got a couple nickels kind of shallow (2 scoops) then slowed to the snail's pace...Got another signal, broken but being I just got two nickels I'm going to dig all...3 scoops, maybe 12 inch's deep ..surprise...Gold.

      Both silver. Was using the Equinox 800 with 6" coil. Using Park 2, 2 tone, recovery 4, iron bias 0, and sensitivity 24. I like Gold mode too. 
      Not worth much, 2 earrings worth $0.50. Like finding 2 quarters lol. The stone is cz.  They are real jewelry though.

      I got out today for a low tide hunt and some needed exercise.  Conditions weren’t good but I was eager to give it a whirl. After an hour I got a 7-8 on the MDT8000 and this 10k ring popped out.  I haven’t tested the diamond chips yet. The rest of the hunt was uneventful but I had already achieved my goal so I was good to go. Thanks for reading and happy hunting.

      Out yesterday for the first time in a while. Went to a spot that has been Hammered so much by every water machine made... it really is hard to find anything good. I took a friend to this spot last year, his words.."I hate this place" I will never come back here again...And the reason is......... it's lacking targets of any kind other then shallow trash or fishing sinkers freshly lost......and being up a cove there is little to no sand movement. So if there is anything good it is going to be deep.
       
      Someone asked a few weeks ago about buoyancy I want to make a correction on something. Yesterdays hunt I took and let the AQ float on the surface in calm water...and this is without the cuff on my arm..the rear does sink fairly fast...needed to correct that information... Also the Nox really drives the AQ crazy..I could hear it coming like a helicopter off in the distant's..

      OK, Been in Oregon bout three years now.  First two years were spent on getting my house in order and new additional garage built.  Then came the Nox, waited on a list for months.  Kept myself busy with my old X-Terra 705 until the Nox arrived but did not go out as much as I should have.  Waiting for a new toy to arrive is not the thing to do, you lose your edge for hunting.  Fast forward now to the waiting list for the AQ limited.  This one is also driving me nuts.  I watch the email daily hoping it's coming soon and follow this website for AQ tidbits.  It's like the Nox all over again.  I haven't gone hunting with my trusted Tesoro Sandshark P.I.for two years now and that's just not acceptable.  Well today I jotted down a couple of pocket beaches I spotted driving up the coast a few months ago and decided to hit them at low tide.
      The first one I hunted with the Sandshark just at the waters edge where the water riverlets started to separate the mud.  This is where most of the coins settled out.  At high tide it's about three feet deep here.  No gold but good to hear those crisp coin tones and the sinker was about another 12" deep.  Decided to do the last beach with the Nox.  Went down the steps, out about fifteen feet to a used fire pit/burnt area.  First signal was a solid 12.  The ring couldn't have been there very long because it wasn't more than three inches deep in soft sand.  Nice 2.9 gram, not marked but acid tested 10K gold.  Fake diamonds with pearlescent type stones.  The gold is there, I just have to keep telling myself the will is there and get off my butt and quit watching my email.  What will happen will happen for a reason.  Persistence has always put gold and silver in the bag.  This was a good day!  GaryC/Oregon Coast
