Some Gold Nugget Vdi Numbers

Recommended Posts


That was a lot of work!

Still looks like you can't be sure until you dig it...

I presume the DFX is the detector used?  Maybe you could do that again with the CTX...just kidding

I wonder what your nice specimen from last summer would show?  A foil VDI is what I would expect.

  • When using my ctx I mostly go by vdi numbers. Nugget shooting with a goldbug pro it's sound, and my gpz is a dig everything machine.

Stick, I noticed in your interests you like Water Boarding. Did you work for the CIA? I know sorry off topic but could not resist.

Steve, Great comparison. Thanks for the time you put into all of this.

Great chart Steve.  I have a 18k ring that rings higher then my other gold rings and I always wondered if it was because of the purity. I'm gonna test it today to make sure it's not a fake.  I've read that if I keep digging zinc penny numbers with the ctx (12.35 range) I might eventually get a big gold ring. It has not happened yet. Just for fun I ran my biggest gold nugget over the ctx and it did ring way up there.

Fish- classified info...maybe around the campfire one day.

      How does IB detectors compare to VLF and PI's? Worth trying to build one or just a waste of time?

      Published on Jan 19, 2019 - Just a quick video showing the benefits of the Vista Gold running at a higher kHz and using zero gain in highly mineralised soil Here are the videos, after further testing I can confirm that the 15 kHz hits stronger on deep silver in clean Non Mineralised Soil and both are exactly the same on the gold coin at depth in Non Mineralised Soil.
