How I Can Find Gold Rings With Nox 600

Recommended Posts

Hi to app.

I have a Nox 600 since 1 year and I used here in Italy to find everywhere  generally on beaches but not only.

I choosed to buy the 600 instead of the 800 version due to the fact that here I can't find native Gold but this is my opinion that for me Nox 800 was wasted.

I found just 4 Gold little items last year and I made a lot of work for that. I digged a lot on beaches and I digged from VDI 1 to VDI 29 in Beach 1 and 2 depending of near the sea or just in the Sand. As I remember 3 little rings  at VDI 6, 10 and 12.

Now what I want to ask you in your experience is:

Is it ok to stay with 600? Or could be very different for finding gold rings in the beach (my possibile gold items here are just rings and other little items on beach, no native gold nuggets...)

Is a good idea to change mi finding way to All Metal mode?

I used generally 5 tones. Do you advice me to start Learning the 50 tones in the way that I could choose to dig low ID (2 to 12) and be more helpful to find gold instead of tinfoil. Now the probability that from VDI 2 to 12 could be gold items la very low just looking at the target ID.

In your esperience with Equinox which trick or method you advise me most for the search for gold objects like rings or earrings or small objects on the beach?

Thank you very much. Every SUGGESTION is appreciated.

I would like to see a table of VDI made by you diggers  to compare it with mine on attachment related to findings here in Italy:

Define bad - If you want to find gold, you have to dig those. At least, that's the lesson I've learned... My last find was a 18k 1000€ ring, which came in at ID14 - while coinshooting, I'd normally wouldn't have digged that :wacko:

 

I've been 100s of hours on the beach in the last year, and only found 3 gold items. For me there are 3 main reasons for that:

- We have no tide and I only hunt the dry sand. Most of the good stuff is in the water.

- I didn't dig all those low numbers. Our beaches are relatively trash conterminated compared to some other beaches of fellow detectorists - that's why I simply can't dig all those low numbers in the summertime, If I wan't to collect some certain amount of clad.

- My beaches are very small, little to no hotels or big tourism, mostly local people. And.. germans don't seem to wear as much gold as other nationalities people :wink:

 

All in all I don't think another machine will suddenly increase your number of gold finds. You really have to find those well visited localtions and dig low numbers for small gold, A good portion of luck will also help :wink: Try to find the spots where heavy items settle (fishing weights for example) - most likely other heavy items will settle around that area.

No..... the 600 is a fine beach machine.  YES run in AM.... it dont chop signals.   But reduce your iron volume to 3... which will make it a soft back ground sound.   I believe you will find 50 tones will help you size the target better and help with iron/mineral falsing ID as well.   The thing you have to remember about foil OUT of the water...... it moves easily.   Those rises say in the dry sand .... you are going to get a lot of it there especially because  it will blow and concentrate there.   In the wet sand nearer the water .... you may get some can slaw but no so much foil like gum wrappers....... so if you dont dig the smaller digits i can assure you you WILL miss some small gold.   Its difficult to say why you may not be finding gold with machine...... but eliminate the you factor.  Keep that coil on the sand, over lap, listen more to mid conductor or for a tie even disc out a penny and above until you train your ear, and maybe slow down.   Also there maybe 100 bad to every 1 good target on the dry sand........ but that narrows as you move toward the water... and in the water 10 to 1 ratio.

* "bad" was error of typing on my smartphone,😀, It was at...

Yes, I'm agree with you. I have to try again and again also in the same places  and I will do next summer on the wet sand and first meters on the beach where we suppose to find more gold and silver items there.

Yes, I think so, I like my Nox 600 too. I agree on what you say. I have to dig also low ID from 1 cause little rings could have low ID of course.

I got  6 gold chains last year and several small pieces of gold......id HIGHLY recommend digging those 1 to 4 digits on the beach.... especially in the water or wet sand.

      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.

      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?

      What are peoples thoughts on Ferrite Choke's/Core Filters on coil cables?
      I noticed that with my QED detector a Ferrite Filter came with it to clip onto my coil right up the end where it plugs into the control box.  As I have a few coils I clipped one on each of them as I had a few of them laying around, I was a couple short so I'll have to buy some more to do every coil. 
      Seeing the QED uses them I was wondering why other detectors don't so I googled images of coils, Well it turns out they do...

      Above is a picture of a CTX 3030 coil, note at the end where the cable plugs into the detector is the Ferrite.
      And then the GPZ 7000 also has one, but Minelab did it the better way by putting it on the wires inside the control box.  This method would work better as the wires there aren't already shielded so the ferrite can work its magic better.

      Above is the Wiring Loom, C-Box Coil Connector for the GPZ.   This is the perfect method in my opinion, the wires loop around the ferrite to give the best results and there is a shield wire going down onto the connector.  This could possibly be a method the QED could use in future upgrades to give the best results as putting it over an already shielded wire would limit its effectiveness I would think.
      The filters probably do a better job at helping prevent EMI out of the detector than coming into it, but it would be interesting to know peoples thoughts on them.
      I'm going to order a few more clip on ones to put on my coils I use on the QED anyway as it must need them, these are the ones I'll get, simple clip ons...  5 for $2 🙂

      My detector has been having some problems lately. I have a teknetics liberator. The other night it was chirping periodically. In the morning it wouldn’t turn on. So I checked the connecting points and put a fresh battery in and the power button still didn’t work. When I put the battery in it would turn on automatically but then would turn off after a short time.
      Has anyone ever had experiences fixing this?

      Say I'm trout fishing today and find a 4" quartz seam loaded with visible gold (Googly 'gold in quartz and it's as good as anything on page 1). But, the land is already claimed by an armchair 'miner' that actually just uses it as loooong term camping/fishing/hunting space without campground antics and charges plus it's close to a deer layover area. Say I know this for sure since I met his grandkids and son years ago during hunting season and taught them how to snipe for gold on that very stream since the 'miner' was oblivious as to how.
      What would you do;
      Tell him?
      Wait for him to lapse his claim into abandonment or die?
