Detecting Lode Gold

Recommended Posts

I used my 7000 under ground and had good luck with the 19" coil. My old go to was the Vsat it was the spot on machine for rock for me. I'll be sticking to the 7000 from now on unless blasting caps were used then it's aluminum shards all over and you get tired of them really fast.

Good luck

I take it you mean I WOULDN'T bother with a Falcon.....

That surprises me as I have had damn good success with mine sampling quartz float for tiny gold particles. You did turn it on....didn't you? :biggrin:

Good luck out there

Are you going to follow me around spellchecking JW? If you are, at least grab a beer on your way back. 

The Falcon was as useless as the old 'Gold Spear' was. Compelety useless both of them.

You know argyle, I have a Falcon and find it useful for spot checking quartz specimens before sawing them in half. A limited use tool for sure. It may not have served your intended use but it serves mine.

Hello Argyle…. 

I have not used the Falcon for checking rock samples, but do have a basic understanding of how it is supposed to work. Would you kindly explain why the Falcon wouldn’t be good for spot checking small quartz samples? For example, is it the lack of penetration of the 300 kHz frequency (if memory serves) that disqualifies it in your view… or do you have other reasons? Thankyou...
