Thread For New Detectorist Using Deus And New Deus Users

Update: USING GOLD FIELD

Been out today on a old Roman site, very worked out for many years, believe me, finds here are very far and few between.....

however I searched using G/Field, lots of iron naturally, struggled initially, with the amount of feedback from iron contamination on this site,,,  however this program is relatively new to me, so persevere I did,, as the day went on things started to all click, what was the game changer was when I experimented with the XY Screen,, ( I've never been fan of this before) but it's extremely accurate using G/ Field!! Amazingly accurate information!!

My advice to anyone interested in trying G/Field is to have a try using the XY screen! I certainly was amazed with the accuracy!

By the end of the day I managed to find several Roman coins including 1silver Denarius!

All in all ,,,, very impressive!

settings below....( GB of 66 was grabbed early in the day and I never had to adjust for rest of the day, machine ran really stable on this GB number)

Elliptical coil

Disc...IAR 5

GB.... 66

reactivity ... 4

sens.... 95....

Audio Response.... 4

threshold...0

Frequency...74 KHz

XY Screen 

Hope this helps at least one person!!!!

regards

Dave.

Thanks for sharing Dave.

I mean this sincerely.

Nothing like having someone here who hunts the polluted sites to share info with results.

Thanks Tn for such well thought out posts. As a new Deus user it is incredibly helpful. I mainly hunt the beaches of SoCal and so far I go by the tones and just keep the remote in my pocket. Now I’m inspired to take it out and look at what it’s telling me.

Forgive me, but how does one get into X/Y from GF? Trying to save a custom program.

Hit the OPTION button,

go to CONFIGURATION,

then PROFILE, 

then XY.... set magnify to, five or six...by pressing down on the pinpoint button for a second or two,

Well, it's been a couple of weeks since my last post here.

 

So what's new with using the Gold Field program?

Here's  my thoughts since then.

(TNsharpshooter, I'll appreciate your thoughts on this)

Downside......

The Deus using Gold Field,,, will except good audio response, that's not necessarily a non ferrous target,,, even using IAR settings of 4 or 5!

Somehow,, maybe deep iron?,,, I'm not sure, will give a fantastic audio sound, but check the VDI and it registers as 00/01 ........

However in saying that,,, the majority iron, this program has no problems with telling the user that iron is under the coil!

I've come to the conclusion that Gold Field, just maybe, is unable to totally discriminate all ferrous targets, perhaps which are deep?

However,, since using this program I can't remember the last large piece of iron I've dug!,, in conjunction with the XY screen.

The most important thing is when using Gold Field ,, IMO,, is the XY screen it's vital!!! ,,,,, this is very accurate at telling the user of these false "audio signals ",, I've settled for the XY magnification of 4,, this does seem to have a better way of indicating targets, set too high, and the lines seem to go a bit crazy!

(Personally I think GF program, should be defaulted to showing the XY screen)

Obviously GB is vital when using G/F,  

Funnily enough today, I had ground sensitivity set on 6, and the top right box displayed virtually the same GB number that was grabbed using G/F ,,, this has given me huge encouragement with the new V4.1 update in respect of the new GB sensitivity feature!....

Personally I'm loving this program,, and it's definitely found me lots of excellent finds, from sites I honestly thought were searched out!

Message to all,,,,, give this a try,,, be patient,, it will take time to get your head into this program,,, and you may well be very surprised!

Regards 

Dave

      EDITED.........For a first timer just doing some experimental nugget hunting would it be worth a GPAA membership for access to the claims or just doing some research and hunting BLM land?  Will be in Phoenix visiting a friend after a work trip that ends in Vegas. I am entertaining renting a car instead of flying and trying my luck for nuggets along the way!  
      Thanks...Noah

      has any one air test the scuba tector on large objects ????? i like to know it max range ......i seen its worthless on very small targets ....whats it range on a helmet , rifle ,  truck size object ....the targets i look for  are 12 to 24 inches deep could the scuba tector in wet sand go this deep ???  or does it max out at 12" am guessing 2.5x the coil size like other pi detectors do ....

      any info or ideas  on what would find more nuggets ?????

      Seeing that most of the regular posters are experienced detector users, I'm a little curious what type of threshold  you prefer.
      I've noticed there seems to be 3 main choices for threshold.
      1. Running hot, detector sounds a little unstable but still a target stands out from the rest of the sounds.
      2. Running smooth and steady listening for any change in sound at all.
      3. Running close to, or actually silent with a target the only sound made excepting an occasional EMI burst.
      And second are you using headphones?
      I run my 7000 close to silent, and my discrimination detectors with a smooth threshold.
      I use headphones on everything.

      On my FB a few weeks ago I posted a photo of a thin metal tin rectangular in shape that had Chinese writing on it. Yes I know it is an opium tin, but what does the symbols say? Found these 3 at an old mining site with Equinox. Thanks for your help.

      Hi Everyone just wondering about Gold Nugget Settings?.
      I haven’t seen or heard  much about Settings for hunting small nuggets and also hunting them in highly mineralised soils?.
      Very interested to see how it’s going to compare against the Gold Monster, as it’s very sensitive on very Tiny bits.
      So if anyone’s been having some great success with it I’d love it if you could please share some settings and tips.
      Thanks Everyone for your time and help it’s greatly appreciated!!.
       Cheers All
