  1. It is official and I'm (Gerry's Detectors on Boise, Idaho) accepting Pre Orders for the new White's 24K GMT. Contact me direct to get on the list as they are expecting to ship 1st week of next month (August). Yes I know this machine and have had success with it. Yes I have a 3 day Field Training on Gold Detectors next month at Sumpter, Oregon and my customers get a $150 discount on the class. If you are interested in trading in your detector, lets talk and see if we can make it happen and if not, no hard feelings. I highly recommend you get the $750 package as the small concentric coil is a killer on little nuggets, crystalline gold, and small specimens.
  2. Yes I can now share photos of the new 24K and some finds. To allow for future posts and knowledge, I'll start this one on the 1st couple times used. Earlier this year, I was in discussion with someone at White's and was told be ready for some testing. Sure enough it happened, I was off & running. The bad part was, no manual at the time, so trying to figure out a machine while standing on the side of an ore dump hillside was....heck yea...fun as hell. After all, who reads manuals right. So my 1st hunt goes like this. 2 hours and nothing but bullets and iron to show for myself. Now I know gold is in the area and I even know gold has been found here. I decide to do some testing on small, medium and large iron to get an idea of the readout on the screen. I see most iron reads more on the left and lower numbers. Good, I'll remember that for Hunt #2. Hunt #2 a couple weeks later (still no manual) puts me back at another crushed and decomposed granite hillside. This time I realize the numbers not to dig. 20 minutes into my swing and a clear but faint signal is heard. The ID is jumping back and forth (to me, means possible small nugget). Getting it into my cup and using the magnet proves to be nonferrous signal. Sure enough, my 1st 24K raw crystalline gold nugget (all of .4 grams anyway). No, I did not find any Monster 1pound chunks of gold, but in a short time with no manual, I did what I wanted and that was to find GOLD with the new 24K. The ability to learn a machine takes time and I prefer to be by myself. I also want to know what a detector does in a variety of field conditions and that involves time and travel. Time is such a limiting factor for me, as I also run a business and need to make sales of detectors to keep fuel in the truck to go back out and learn more. And once I get the manual in my hands, I'll learn much more. The photos are of my 1st 24K gold find. Yes I can start taking Pre Orders today, so call Gerry's Detectors in Boise, Idaho to get on the list. (If I do not answer, please leave a message). Update, yes I did get a manual and it made a world of difference with more gold and knowledge to share later.

    Pistol Dig & Help ID

    Anyone a Pistol Expert? I just dug this banger of a find. Minelab Equinox 800 sniffed it at only 10". Please share with your gun buddies and we'll get it figured out. It is one of my cooler Idaho digs. Oh, and if you have been lucky enough to have found a pistol or gun, please share story and photos on here.

    White's Goldmaster 24K - New For 2018

    I'll be taking Pre Orders on the new GM-24K this coming Monday, July 16th. I've been told I can not share any photos until then. But yes I can now say I have used it and like what I see so far. Realize I have not used it in all my areas, but have been able to recover two different types of gold at 2 different sites. Gerry's Metal Detectors at www.gerrysdetectors.com is best way to contact me on Monday. Hopefully I find a few more this weekend?
  10. I have a small supply of new in box EQ-600's & 800's and also have the Minelab 100% Waterproof headphones. No sales of the WP headphones alone until supplies get caught up. If you are interested in the detectors and or detectors with WP Phones, contact Gerry's Detectors in Idaho.

    Equinox 600 Hits Big Gold

    Stunning find. Your dad will remember the trip and find for the rest of his life. So glad to see people out there with their family enjoying this hobby.
  12. Nice video. The lack of gold recoveries is made up with the extra scenery provided. Your pin pointing is fine and the scoop/detector are also top notch equimpent. I don't hunt those big shallow beaches much as the targets are across a vass area and pull tabs seems to be in the shallows. I myself prefer deeper waist to chest deep water. I find less signals but the chances of gold usually go up. Either way, keep at it and glad to see you packing your trash out. When you get some Waterproof headphones, then you can go deeper. Good Luck.
  13. 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.

    White's Goldmaster 24K - New For 2018

    aufarmer, As soon as I get the word, I'll start taking orders. So far in the ground conditions I've run it's much smoother than other VLF gold detectors. White's engineering definitely designed a machine that will be loved by many. More depth, smoother operation, greater sensitivity, way easier operation (user friendly), better housing per weather conditions and offering it at a more competitive price (savings). Just so you know, I am recommending the 2 coil package for best savings.
