Detecting A Train, What Detector Would You Use?

Recommended Posts


 I think your GPX wit a large coil would do very well. For a test, check out the response on a culvert buried in a roadway.

I would think your GPX and big coil would do the job.

Such a cool story! I agree that you should check out trying to find a culvert buried under a road, which shouldn't be a problem, and that will let you know about which coil works the best for a large, deep target. If it's only a meter down, I imagine your machine should shout back at you with a strong response.

On a different note, I remember speaking to a WWII veteran. He told me how after WWII was over, they dug huge trenches and pits by wartime runways and pushed planes into them, then set them on fire. However, he also told me of one pit where they just pushed the planes in and didn't burn them. Now, wouldn't that be something to find?

All the best,

Lanny

I can loan you a 25 inch Nugget Finder mono coil. At one meter deep you should have no problem. You will probably pick up a train in China. :laugh:

Thanks!!! 🙂 25" is damn huge, that'll do the job nicely.  We'll see what happens, seems like a fun mission, although If I find one I'll refuse to get my mug in the paper!

Simon steam locomotives are small potatoes.  Imagine the fun you could have with your very own tank ☺️

      Can I reduce the sensitivity of my GPX 5000 but still keep good depth. 
      I'll show you the problems I'm getting in this video

      In FNQ Australia, there are a number of properties you can go on & detect for gold. Most places are pay to detect & are well set up for camping with designated areas set aside for metal detecting, if you are fortunate enough to have access to private leases & cattle stations with gold bearing country even better again. Up until today, I had access to one of these private cattle stations to prospect on. Unfortunately I no longer have access, this is due to the fact there are still people doing the wrong thing while on these properties. The rubbish left behind at camp sites and open detector holes for cattle to break legs in is out of control. On top of that you got fence jumpers & poachers running a muck too. This is causing huge issues for for graziers forcing them to close the gates to everyone & in most cases getting access now, is nearly impossible. 
      I can't express in words how disappointing this is for us guys & girls who are doing the right thing, only to be told you can't detect at your favourite spot anymore because of w#%kers ruining it for everyone. So the quest for a new spot starts again....  Take only gold and memories & leave only foot prints. So we will all have somewhere to look for gold in the future!

      I was looking around the new Minelab website and I noticed they now say the Equinox is single frequency on Gold Modes, is this some sort of error or are new Equinox 800's coming without multi-IQ on their gold modes?  I found nothing wrong with MultiIQ Gold modes so I don't see why they'd change it.
      https://www.minelab.com/metal-detectors/equinox-800
      Detect Modes
      Equally adaptable for all target types and ground conditions:
      Park Field Beach Gold: Gold Mode operates the high single frequencies of either 20 kHz or 40 kHz to detect gold nuggets in mineralised soils.

      Used Cherry Pick settings from the Handbook for  a brief session in a local park.  Found a penny, the handle of a spoon.  If it ever was silver plated, that is long gone.  Then found a quarter-sized disk, a token of some sort.  It says "Where a kid can be a kid" on both sides and one side was stamped OTTS.ORG.  I  just tried that website and it is apparently closed.  There was a message to the effect to leave your contact info if you have any business with this site.
       
      Question:  is there something more than the Lesche Predator but less than a shovel -- a mini shovel, perhaps?
