It's Not How Fast You Detect, It's How Well You Detect Fast

Recommended Posts

Saw a TV commercial this past memorial day weekend.  Had to do with mowing lawn. And thats what i was doing most of the weekend.  But my mind was definitely thinking about detecting for nuggets.  

But is got me thinking about detecting. Last season was my most productive. I did quite well. I finally got some rewards for all of my efforts. 

But while mowing and weedeating, thinking about how meticulous you have to be to make the yard look nice. Nice even rows while mowing. Even slow swings with the weedeater.

In principle, the same as swinging a detector. But wanting to up my game this season,  I know I have room for improvement.  I've done lot'sof research this past winter. And got some leads that look promising, but will see if they pan out in the field. 

I know my main thing I  want to improve on is hearing them faint signals. I feel I've been dismissing some as ground noise. I apologize for the rambling,  but had to get some of my thoughts down on print. 

Hopefully the snowpack will be down this weekend for me to get to some of my areas. Wishing everyone on the forum great success this season. Scott K.

      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.

      Hi all,
      I need some help. I want to buy a detector. But my budget is limited(say i can buy a garret 400i or a fisher gold bug 2). 
      For me the depth is important after that iron discriminatin comes. I wil use it for gold prospecting(!check the picure, with gold what i mean). The depth is around 3 or 4 feet. Can you give me some advises for getting a detector? What kind of detector can detect this kind of treasure?
      Thank you very much.

      I wanted to share some pics of my completed goldmaster 4b detector shaft swap. It was fairly easy and l was happy with the results. I think someone could do the same thing with the gmt if they wanted .

      I hit a site today that I had hunted many years ago and asked if it was still ok. I found this button. The color is golden in most areas. on the back of the button there is writing.
      It says "M.C. LILLEY & Co. O. COLUMBUS" best I can tell. I'm afraid to clean it too much for fear of damaging it. Found with my Teknetics T2SE and Cors Shrew in a very iron contaminated site. Also found old square nails too. While I will not tell specifically where I found this, the place was a Farm since 1854.
