Welcome, Veisal!  You have a high quality metal detector manufacturer there in your country.  But the ML Equinox 800 is a great tool for finding native gold, so you're in good shape.  I hope you are successful and will be able to photo and post some of your upcoming finds.

Welcome to the forum and the 800 is a good detector for your area.

The 800 loves silver and will hit it hard, I know that from using my 800.

Good luck and please show us some of your finds when you come across them, we love pictures and the story behind them.

Hello, thank you all for the warm welcome.
The place where I look for native gold is this as rock geology is this, I searched for about 2 hours but found nothing, I will try again for more time searching in the same region ?

   From what little I know about finding native gold, (l'm more of a beach guy!) I see alot of good broken quartz deposits, and some iron deposits! Hopefully any gold there is large enough to be detectable!

   You would greatly benefit from the gold experts here, if you post under the more focused subject heading on the forum! There they can find, and assist you with any questions, or help locating the gold!🍀👍👍

Some things that I have done with my grandfather with a site like that was to get a 20 liter bucket full of material and use a pan to see if there is any color first.

If we found anything interesting we would go back and hit it hard with detectors and a recirculating sluice to get the gold. Your area may have some real fine gold that is not detectable with most detectors, so don't give up on that spot. Check in the cracks, at the bottom, and on each side to find where it may be.

Good luck.

      I just wanted to give a quick thank you to all of you who've welcomed me back this time after my departure a few years back.... it's been great to be back and I'm so happy to see how warm and accepting you've all been, granted half the members may have me on "user ignore" so don't even know I'm back.. LOL.. but thank you again and Steve, thank you for keeping such a tight ship and for welcoming me back so graciously and defending me from those who weren't keen. PS: I'm doing my best to stay non political and on topic, my dog's had to thwap me in the back of the head a couple times but I'm learning.... LOL
      You're all a great family, dysfunctional family at times yes (it's why I luv you all), but family it is. 🙂

      Hi Everyone, 
      I have been reading posts on these forums for quite awhile without posting, while looking for info on gold prospecting and metal detecting in general. This website has been a great resource even for a experienced prospector and detectorist like myself. I am looking forward future exchanges with all of the very interesting folks that contribute here.

      Hi everyone,
      Avid reader from France of this forum, which I consider to be the "best" in the world. I am happy to be part of this community.
      Passionate since childhood by detection, I mainly detect in fields and woods family (I am the son of farmer) I had the chance to try and have a lot of detectors.
      My favorite is the Sovereign which I find unbeatable in discrimination between aluminum and gold.
      Sorry if my English is approximate .

      Hi There everyone. 
      May have been a member many years ago but fade in and out of metal detecting but recently back at it.
      Looks like this site is chock full of informative folks and sure I'll have some questions.
      Have one question right off the bat regarding whether or not there's a printing tool for being able to print a particular thread I'm very interested in.
      If so I'm not seeing it.
      Or a way to save a particular thread?

      I've been prospecting with my shovel and high banker for many years, though I grew tired of hauling all that heavy gear around.  Always wanted a metal detector and now I have one.  Gerry has helped to outfit me with one of those GPZ 7000 rigs.
      I now live in Bozeman Montana, surrounded by some amazing geology, history and beautiful mountains.
      My objective is to get out and into the mountains, away from the crowds.  Currently researching the local mountains as I have found lots of quartz just off to the side of the trails, now I can go back and see of there is anything hidden within the dirt.
      I look forward to the adventures!

      Hi guys. New to this site but not new to chasing gold. Mostly detect for it these days. Name is Greg & I am in New Zealand. We have in the last couple of days gone into lockdown due to our first covid case in the community since february of this year. Has apparently come from across the ditch from the New South Wales outbreak in Australia. BUGGER. So locked down at home & cant go out for a detect. Beautiful day too.
      Look forward to "meeting" & hanging out with you all & see what you guys are finding & what gear you are using & what your thoughts are:) on it. Take care stay safe.
      Greg 🙂
