Yes, just run them in all metal mode and ground balance them.

Any dedicated gold machine is a good meteorite hunter. Of course you will also find any other bits of metal that you may swing over. For chrondrites do not use any level of discrimination. I would not use any D ever for meteorites.

The area you are in will likely have all types of rubbish from a few thousand years of occupation and war.

Good Luck

  Yes, you are right, there is everything ... even when it comes from the locality .., Meteority is for me a new theme, sometimes there is some hot-rock, and I always tried to eliminate them .. I'm interested now. ..

      Howdy from Montana Newbie,
      I am in the market for a GB Pro. Going to Arizona and escape these brutal Montana winters for 4 months. Have a buddy down there who is a snow bird also. He explores abandoned mine shafts and old mining operations.  Figured I might as well swing a detector while exploring the area. Amazon had a GB Pro 5" coil as "used with box damaged" for $470.00. I decided to pull the trigger and see what was in the box. The unit looked good...but...I could only find the single 1/4" headphone jack, need the 3.5mm jack for the headphones I am going to use. The manual stated this as well, only 1/4" jack. Didn't turn it on, just reboxed it and returned it immediately for full credit + $85.00 additional credit to buy a new unit with dual headphone jacks from Amazon at $549.00. Any thoughts? Thanks.

      Seeing you're new to detecting you probably don't know about the pitfalls yet, there are fakes, fakes of many of the best detectors, here is an example
       
      Whatever you do don't buy one, it won't work well for you.  Also if you're buying second hand Minelab are extremely helpful in verifying the detector you're buying is genuine, contact them about it! get the serial number off the seller, they can name the seller and where they purchased it from for you if it was a real one.
      I hope you purchased your Gold Bug Pro from a reputable dealer as it's also a highly faked detector.
      Here is a fake Gold Bug Pro for sale
       
      It looks like they're clearly made to be sold to the African market, note the Depar sticker on the shaft

      Since its origins in 1976, DEPAR has been, and still is, Middle East, Africa and Turkey leader in distributing quality metal detecting technologies for consumer with its experienced personnel and succesfull dealer network and serves as an authorized technical service.

      Ran across this while watching YouTube videos on gold prospecting:

      Had an outing with a good friend to a Local creek yesterday. We dug a huge hole and moved some big boulders and found the 1.3g right at the start of the process. Diligent detecting elsewhere in the creek produced the other two. The 1.7g was right at the start of a crevice that seems to run under a virgin bank... Might dig that out some time but there are some fridge size boulders in the way. Cheers for the fun day out buddy.

      So today I thought it was about time I took my 2.5 year old daughter out to my gold claim. The claim is in reasonably rugged country with steep slopes and dense vegetation. Most of the gold is found as small nuggets on or near bedrock. There was one spot I could think of that was within 100m of the road where a river bank had been washed out and bedrock was exposed. That said I knew I'd have to cut a bit of a track through the vegetation to get the little girl through.
      We got to our location after a bit of a scramble down a short but steep slope with the aid of a rope. Was a bit of a performance with a backpack on my back and carrying my daughter. I set her up on a grassy bank next to where I'd be digging and surrounded her with snacks with which to entertain herself. 
      As luck would have it I managed to uncover three small nuggets by clearing the gravels off the bedrock and detecting it. After about an hour she'd had enough and we clamberd back to my car.
      Needless to say, I'm very proud that she's now big and patient enough to take gold hunting!    
      Oh, we got 0.8g total. However in this case the memories (at least for me) are priceless.

      Hi Gals n Guys,
      First decent go with the Bug Pro fake today!
      Alot of trash. Bullet shell, lead, pot handle, square nails and plenty of tin.
      I ground balance to start with then from that point i keep an eye on it. Now, i run in all metal, gain at around 10-11 oclock, threshold only just buzzing.
      Mild steel trash can read around the 15-20 mark or around the 85-90 mark. I dig everything ATM to get a feel for it.
      If i was to detect gold, what would it read? With a really strong signal i switch over to discrimination to tey and ID.
      Have i got it right?
      Thanks guys.
      Al.
