  1. I went out to an old farmhouse with ozzie today. Located on a ridge, made for strong wind and a cold cold rain. A lot of the soil around the house seemed like modern, terribly junk laden fill...pull tabs and broken bolts at 8 inches, etc. Equinox at 24 sense, disc off, recovery 3. Down to my last half hour and feeling a bit bummed....finally had a soft soft but repeatable high tone. Pinpoint could barely get it...low grunts mixed in, but everything was so faint it had to be dug. Dug a full shovel length plug. Pinpointer was fully in the hole and buzzing in center....Great sign...carefully cut again into the dirt and could see the silver edge...too wide for a dime... No complaints here! 1 reale, 1801, mexico mint Happy hunting, all!

  2. Yesterday I went on a detect and didn't get much until a little area on the beach where I found a chain. It didn't have a definitive sound but it looked like it could be silver (it's not). This made me check the area more thoroughly as I had nothing else going. I came up with another chain which is a bit of odd construction. This one would be a bracelet. And then as I was exiting this little area I got yet another chain but this one is rusting quickly. This is chain #2 During the mile back to the car I thought about how the ocean can be very fickle. No coins around these chains but 3 of them. I wanted a 4th because the rhyme and title to this post was already stuck in my brain. It didn't happen. I got the cheap ring instead of a chain. Today I was going to detect with the 800 headphones again as a result of a purchase from a forum member. I was glad to confirm to him that while they were sitting on his shelf uncharged they charged for me and also paired. Great. I was now on another beach but it was also sparse pickings. No coins to speak of and I got to one area where someone left their grid marks so I skipped that. When I headed in the other direction on a mid-line I got a small tone. When I lifted my scoop up I could see the balled up chain and I knew this one was silver. My 'line' was rescued and now I could post the title. This is chain #4. It is only 1.6g/.925. Searching the slope proved unproductive so I headed away from the beach to a dig out and found the costume ring which I think is old style but of no value. That was my beach hunting. The old costume ring. Later in the afternoon, I took my son to the park and one of the nannies said she needed my help. They normally give me help and advice so I wanted to know what I could do. She said she had lost her ring in the sand. The sunscreen had loosened the ring she bought in Peru that was 18k with some little diamonds. I had my detector in the car so I tried to find her ring. She didn't have a good idea where it came off so it was unsuccessful. While I was looking for her ring after she left I did find the 1.1 g/14k ring with a heart shaped amethyst! I don't find many rings in parks because I don't hunt them often. This should probably change. It is just good to get out.

  3. We caught a break in the 90+ temps in Yuma for one last trip. Ostensibly, it was to be a quick trip to the spot we found the bigger gold in Feb and to test the X-Coil 15" Concentric coil over the ground we had covered extensively with the X-Coil 17x12 and stock coil. It's about a 1/2 mile walk to the spot but I pulled up short to detect a wash we were about to cross. My friend with the Concentric coil went on to the target area. I am using the 7000 with stock coil while waiting for some re-work on my patch lead for the X-Coils. I had worked the lower sections of this particular wash back in Feb and found 6 little bits in one small area, the rest of the wash seemed barren. My goal was work the wash towards our target area just to get the machine warmed up and my listening skills tuned in. I was working pretty quick really looking for a sitting duck rather than slow and methodical because this wash hadn't produced too well. About 100 yds on, I hit a pretty good tone right up against the wash sidewall. I pulled out the bigger of non-specie gold in the picture. From there over about 20 yds I pulled 3 more small pieces then hit the smaller specie gold on an inside bend of the wash. I continued up the wash and found the bigger specie dead center of the wash down in the bedrock. I found 1 more tiny bit up on the bank, but then starting hitting a lot of trash targets so I turned around and reworked the wash for 0 nuggets. Because of the specie pieces I then started a circle on the hillsides all around the area for nothing. I put down my gear and walked to the target area to check on my friend with the Concentric coil. He had found 2 pieces in an area well detected on our previous trips and attributed it to the overall sensitivity of the Concentric on small targets. Because of the heat and short trip we had no opportunity to make any comparisons on undug targets. I worked my way back down the wash to the RZR, over areas I had covered in Feb. On the last bend I was picking my way down a slick rock slide area and waved my coil over some overburen covering a layer of bedrock above me. I got a faint tone and started pulling down the overburden and reached some decomposing granite bedrock. The target sound got better so I ended up busting out the bedrock trying to pick up the target down in a deep crack. As I got further down, the target got weaker and I thought I was pushing it deeper in the crack, so I busted out some more bedrock. I finally picked up a half a matchhead size nugget and thought that just couldn't be right. As good as the 7000 is on small gold, that just didn't seem right. I then waved over my spoils pile with all this overburden and busted up granite. Targets everywhere. The sun beating down on me and I'm on my knees sorting through the spoils trying to pinpoint tiny targets with a 14" coil. After about 1/2 hr, I got most of them, 6 matchhead size nuggets. If I had my handy NOX, I could have made short work of this mess, but maybe I'll go back for the crumbs next year. I'm moving to Reno in a couple weeks, I'll be a snowbird in Yuma next year.

  6. Special thanks to Calabash digger for his reasearch on the pitch mode being good in iron , and His heads up on keeping the silencer at -1 so the target does not get masked in iron . well i used the pitch mode on the DEUS and kept the silencer @ -1 and it came thru for me , Got a good hit on many non ferrous targets today and some right next to iron . i was using the full tones but when i seen Calabash diggers VDs on the pitch mode i had to try that and it has proven to work very well the VDI on this target was 49 and 50 right where a 22 casing comes in or some foils . glad i dug it

  7. I had a chance to meet up with Jim in ma for a beach hunt. Always nice to detect with a fellow forum member. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hit me favorite beach for about 6 hours and had to adjust my thinking, since the bulldozers had mostly buried my silver area. Thanks Guys! ๐Ÿ˜ก So, I moved over to the clad section to at least get to dig some coins. The ratio of silver to clad leans heavily towards the clad. But there was some silver to be found, including the big silver. 71 coins in all (including silvers). Oddly enough, there was not a single zinc to ruin my day. โค๏ธ Average depth of targets was about 14โ€. Some different finds of the day were 2 round ball, one being a 69 caliber, the pistol brooch, a chain which looks too thin to be a pull for a light, but still may be. If it ends up testing positive for silver, then it is a neat design for a piece of jewelry. It was really nice to get out, and I was pleasantly surprised that it did not rain as predicted. Today we are covered with a bit more snow than the dusting I thought we were supposed to get. New England weather! ๐Ÿ™„

I have since replaced a second unit that I bought nonfunctional from a dealer! ML also replaced that one with a new pod! All under warranty! Obviously, I have NO complaints for their warranty service! They have been Stellar! Including three coil tab failures! The coils where replaced without issue!!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  11. Steve I can tell you sitting on that fence hurts . I have a friend wants me to buy a 6000 with his money and we hunt together with it . I personally donโ€™t see that honeymoon lasting too long with two guys on one 6000. I was telling my youngest son that Iโ€™d like to buy a Can Am Ryker motorcycle and he said do it. I said your mother would kill me and his reply was itโ€™s easier to ask forgiveness than get permission. Thatโ€™s another boy just like his dear old dad. Chuck

  12. I once got a 2 oz bit out of an erosion control trench about 50 meters below a mined quartz vein. This was back in the early 1980s and I was using the wife's detector. The nugget was visible in the trench and looked like an 1ยฝ inch steel nut. Her Whites 6000 had motion discrimination my detector did not. I tried the discrimination from min to max and it did not reject. When I pick it up I knew I had a good piece of gold. Back at caravan park I show it to a few professional prospector that I know. All of them said iron junk till I dropped it in their hand. Prior to it acid bath it could be dragged across the table with a super magnet but was unable to lift it up from the table. The gold looked pitted when cleaned and that is it in the photo below bottom right.

  13. Decided to make a day of detecting today. It was a pretty nice day so I first went back to the hill behind my house, but didn't search there. Instead I went down a ravine in the woods to a spot where there might have been some colonial activity. It was supposed to become a boat launch when my area was developed but it never happened, the road to it is almost impenetrable now. Hacked around for a bit but found so few iron signals I decided to move to the landing. The beavers were getting mad anyway, I could hear them slapping their tails against the ground. I was hoping to get a good low tide to hunt the beach but it never happened. Wind was wrong and the tide didn't go out much, so I went to Plan C which was to just randomly hack around the landing. It's starting to grow a low cover of poison ivy, so I hunted for the most part where it was sparse or not there. Didn't do too bad! Got a huge tack buckle, a small D buckle, old faucet handle, a 1990 quarter that I dug out of the gravel in the road, a 1900 IHP, a military service button (WW1) backmarked "The Art Metal Works Newark NJ", my first ever complete 17-18th century shoe buckle (extremely fragile), and the puzzle piece of the day - the other half of a belt buckle I found there a while back. If you've been reading my previous hunts, I cleaned up that tiny anvil I dug in Savannah: Kinda disappointed it doesn't have any maker marks on it, was hoping for "ACME" or something. ๐Ÿ˜€ A while back I dug a sheath out of the river, it was so packed with black river gunk I had wait a while for it to dry to get whatever was in it out. Turned out to be this knife, sad that it's completely gone, it would be worth about $250. It's a 70s Schrade Old Timer 25OT Hunter.

  14. ATX rules! The rock is olivine basalt. The green olivine is known as peridot in the gemstone form. Weight is usually due to heavy magnetite content (magnetic iron ore).

  15. The signal vanishes sometimes with the GPX too, usually if I don't take enough of sand away. I make sure it repeats just enough to peak my interests and then I dig a decent depth hole, at least 8" or more. If it's real then the signal should scream. That is where a spade does better than my scoop. But I'm on dry sand. I've done the wet slopes and it always caves in once you go past the water line. With a scoop, I can see where you would lose the signal. But you know it was there, so it is there. I wish they would scrape a trench for me. ๐Ÿ˜„ In the old days you could probably convince someone to do that during the off season. Throw a 20 at him and a six pack and your golden. ๐Ÿ˜† Nowadays, he would be fired and you would be banned from the beach. If I could bribe nature I would. Nobody does it better than a good old fashion Nor'easter. It's just a matter of location and opportunity. Good spots are getting harder to come by, so you have to be more creative in trying new ones. I have hunted cellar holes for about 10 + years before I did beaches. Before that I did parks, schools, picnic groves, etc.. Every time out, I looked for sections that others might not go into. I hiked a lot ๐Ÿ™„ I have over a hundreds large coppers, seated half dimes, trimes, some bust dimes, etc... all from cellar holes. Research is the key. You could be driving by an old field that may have been a carnival site 100 years ago. You just never know. Come on down, I'll put that GPX on you and turn you loose ๐Ÿ˜„ Just eat your Wheaties before you get here. That rig is heavy.

  16. So it seems the โ€œnew for meโ€ ATX gels with me well - probably the hundreds of hours with it back in 2014! Blessed with some more luck, hunts โ€˜3 and 4โ€™ generated (across two beaches in water) 8 more rings! 2 silver chains and a Pandora bracelet that was โ€œopenโ€ - managed to find 3 charms seperate, under water near the hole for the bracelet! Yesterdayโ€™s (3rd hunt) three gold all pretty average, older 9ct small rings, one with a split band. Today - hunt 4 - only a few coins but found as area of stripped beach (under water) beside a ton of hot rocks! Argh! Then an awesome 916 STM (22ct) Malaysian Ring! finally a strange โ€œhot rockโ€ that is VERY heavy for the size and glitters iron flecks? This glitters like crazy in the sun! Any ideas (sorry photos donโ€™t show the glitter!) rock on the ATX

  17. I live approximately 50km north of Holzhausen(Greifenstein). Right now I am using a 15" pan and my small DIY sluice box that is built from some scrap aluminum sheet metal and contoured plates which I printed with a 3D resin printer. I just drew a few different types of riffles into the plates and hoped that it might work. One question I have is if the DIY sluice box can concentrate gold and heavy grains at all or if I made some mistakes with those contours etc. Last time I took two neodymium magnets and placed them at the end of the sluice box in order to see if there is magnetite or any magnetic ore present in the material and it didn't took long until the magnet was completely covered. Therefore I would like to ask if this could mean that I am looking at the right spot if there is magnetic sand is present or could it mean that I am doing something wrong with the sluice box due to the fact that the magnetic stuff wasn't collected inside the riffles? Or could it be that the magnet thing could give me a false reading about the whole prospecting situation?

  21. I'm happy to say the 6000 really does exist. I picked one up yesterday from JP's shop, The Outback Prospector in Clermont. First impressions, well packed but not ridiculously entombed in plastic, nice and light. It takes a few hours to give the battery full initial charge so allow for that when you purchase one. Bluetooth headphones are nice quality and charged fairly quickly by USB from my laptop. Looking forward to using it in the paddock but need to wait a couple of days till my knee fixes itself.

  23. Thanks. The lack of zinc just shows that the ocean has cleansed whatever remained after all the detectors have swept the area, (after hours) during the beach season. They usually take a blind eye to detecting after the life guards go home. So the locals come out and look for the gold in and out of the water. As for the huge number of coins? Some say it is due to storms surging things back on to the shore. I'm not completely on board with that, as the coins are laying fairly close to the clay layer. I'm thinking storms and wind have removed enough sand for me to just be able to hear these targets. The GPX is heavy especially if I try the 18" coil on it. The 12 1/2" coil is all I can handle on a regular basis. A 14" coil would be perfect for depth I would think. ๐Ÿค” The weather is not usually an issue with me, as long as I am constantly moving and digging. The wind can sand blast your skin and eyes though. Helps rejuvenate those dead cells ๐Ÿ˜„. I'm pretty sure that I am the riff-raff on the beach ๐Ÿ˜†

  26. Hello, I am new to the gold prospecting topic. Unfortunately there are almost no forums or websites with gold prospecting related content in Germany due to the fact that areas where it is possible to find gold are relatively rare compared to the USA. Actually I am looking to pan some gold in the creeks near my village. I am just trying to find a tiny bit of gold in order to proof if the old "tales" in my village about the gold which was found in the small creeks of the so called "blackcreeksystem" (part to the Eder river) nearby are true or not. Due to the fact that I haven't been lucky so far, I am now looking to get some tips about how to do it right and how to improve my DIY equipment.

  28. Out detecting the other day and had a signal on the Monster that sounded like your typical hot rock but when I dug the hot rock out it didn't look like my typical hot rocks in this area? So I took the time to flip the rock over and ran the coil over the other side of the rock and the Monster said GOLD! So after some scraping I see nothing and I'm too busy hunting and throw the rock in my pouch to bust it open later at home. Needed to go into my pouch for something tonight and found the rock I'd already forgot about and scraped the piss outta it and saw nothing, ran coil over scrapings and the rock and still a gold signal but no sight of gold? Took rock inside and took the steel wool to it and finally saw the glint of a little gold so proceeded scrubbing cautiously and found the little flake. This guy almost got away. Moral of the story...if it sounds like gold you might want to pack it home for a THOROUGH check.....

  30. Summers here really suck and last summer we spent all our time on the road prospecting anyway. There's no way I could be cooped up in the heat. I only moved back to Yuma to provide logistics and support for my son to finish his college degree at the NAU extension. He's finished, got a great job and his own place, so my work here is done. I'll come back in the winter, my girlfriend and I both have family and friends here. When I get up there I'm going to put one of those trackers on Lundy and plot his movements by satellite to find all those secret patches.

XP's only real move is into multifrequency land but with ML on their fourth generation of multi and everyone else at the starting line, not seeing how anyone can keep up.

  36. Many times, I dig a few scoops of sand out of the hole, and the signal vanishes.....but I have to just trust I heard the ultra deep target before I started digging (trust it wasnโ€™t a false signal from salt/black sand deposit). My elliptical coil really comes in handy for those signals because I can point the toe of the coil down in the hole once I have dug deep enough and hope I hear the target getting more audible. I dig in wet, low tide sand and in dry, hard packed sand....digging deep holes in wet, saturated sand obviously causes your deep hole to begin to cave in on the sides....even digging in loose, dry sand, which turns into slightly moist compacted sand will create a cave in of the hole the deeper you dig....this causes one to have to widen the hole just to prevent cave-ins....Iโ€™m a short guy (5โ€™7โ€ on a good day), and I wish my legs were longer on some of the holes I dig because I struggle to keep my left leg on top of the surface while extending my right leg down in the hole to push down on the scoop to remove more sand. Many times, I just jump down in the hole (when it gets really deep) and push down on my scoop with both feet. ๐Ÿ˜…

  37. Hi Raphis, It sounds like you were close to the water, or in the water for the holes to start filling up. I would never survive doing that. On my beach I have to use a short spade, due to the packed rocks. I did buy a nice Xtreme scoop but I'm saving it for the nicer, rock-less sand. I only used a TDI for a little bit on the projects I am on. It was a TDI SL, so I don't have enough experience on it to give you a good opinion. But GB off, if possible, is always a better choice from what I hear. It sounds like you know your machine well, so if you had it running good, you should get excellent depth on it. The only way I can compare it from here, is that I get a nice, (quiet) solid, repeatable signal from a silver dime at 15" It's usually a two way signal for the most part. From 16-18" it is a semi-repeatable signal, unstable at times, and not always reading well both directions. After 18" it is a cross between EMI and ground noise, just barely repeating enough of times to make you not walk away. I usually take a foot of sand away and it should read loudly if it is a real signal. So if your machine can copy what I do, or do even better, then you are getting comparable (or better) depth than I am. As for locals hunting with the TDI on beaches, they will never tell anyone about it. Competition steals you finds!๐Ÿ˜„ Thanks. Our beaches are fairly old and luckily, the level that the old coins sit at has always surpassed the new technology coming out.... until recently. Without the GPX (or probably any good PI), I would be posting just a few clad and zincs Technology and a beach that is cooperating is the key๐Ÿ‘ My beach is fairly long. I have hit 3 areas that have produced over 100 silvers each in the last 4 years or so. Also, a couple of small areas that have produced dozens of silvers. If the whole beach is capable of having the deep layers, it's just waiting for nature to remove enough sand in the right areas for me to have access to them. You just have to keep an eye out for those openings. I'll be back at that same clad area next week to see if the dozer didn't get to it, and if it still has more to give. Take it while you can. ๐Ÿ™‚ The ratio is skewed in a way. I always try and guess the target before I dig. I was averaging about 80% correct on iron id. So a 20% failure - mostly on short, heavy iron or small deep iron. The shallow iron breaks up the audio, so it's easy. The deep wires and long pieces show up by coil control (sizing). But I dig them all to get rid of them in the good areas. It's naturally easier to ID iron when they are spaced apart. I did pretty good calling the coins (about 90%), by sizing and softness of signal. The rest of the targets give odd signals which can be either deep iron or odd shapes (like crosses, studs, etc). If I wanted to discriminate by guessing, I would dig a lot less iron, but would lose some coins as well - generally dimes and in better areas that would be silver!

  38. Do you have an interpretation for that other than randomness? You sure do produce with that (heavy) PI. And every time I see a WL Half I feel both joy (for the finder) and a bit of pain (for me since it's my favorite all-time USA coin design, even more than the St. Gaudens $20). There's one out there with my name on it but as yet I haven't figured out where it is.... Good stuff, as always, and I doubt these 30's degree days bother you much after what you went through during the winter months. Besides, it keeps the riff-raff out of your way.

  41. Hi guys - I owned one of the first ATX units (actually 2 of them) and suffered from the coil cable issues. Despite that, these machines produced 100+ gold rings for me (in the space of 1 year). Garrett was awesome and replaced the coils but they failed again (and again) and eventually I sold the machines and focused on the CTX and EXCALs (modded) and later the Equinox. After selling the ATX I purchased the Whites BeachHunter TDI and to be honest, was less than impressed compared to my finds with the ATX of the past. I deeply missed the two-tone audio of the ATX and the 8โ€ mono in the water. It was a deep machine (the TDI) but I had become used to the ATX. I noticed my finds โ€˜dropping offโ€™ once the ATX was sold - and there was no โ€˜replacementโ€™ PI that was readily available...... So last week I came across a late 2018 ATX and picked that up for a very good price - shipping now! i will update you guys with regard the cable issue - I guess I am hoping the cable is in good nick and may be the later version? I missed the ATX - despite its known flaws. Roll on the courier! The forums are certainly quiet on the ATX nowadays

  46. Welcome to the forum and if someone here can help you I am sure that they will do so. What part of Germany are you from? Are you close to Holzhausen or are you closer to Gensungen? Start by taking samples of the area you want to check and classify it down and check for even the tiniest specks of gold in a pan. Then keep trying to find an area that will get you good colors in your pan. What type of equipment do you have, and what help are you looking for? Good luck and let us know what you need and where you live because it really helps us to provide you with the best ways to find the gold.
