    White's MXT Pro

    I have and use a MXT Pro, it still is pretty much on top of the vlf pile for coin/jewelry for me, I have tried some of the latest machines and gone back to the MXT Pro every time so far. Most my park finds are in the first 5" of soil, not worried about the latest and greatest, its very good on gold jewelry due to the khz freq, even with the 5.3 eclipse coil I can hit 10" on a coin if needed. The gold mode works well down to about 2 grain wt nugget, is limited in depth due to vlf but is a decent gold machine in some areas. Very wide range of coils makes the MXT very versitile.

    Fisher Gold Bug 2

    This Gold Bug 2 is very effective on grain size gold to 3" depth, working the manual ground balance in alkali areas can be tedious, but overall I highly recommend this detector for tiny gold cleanup on patches.

    Dumb Question

    The GPX manual says not to remove or change coils with the control box on, or you could damage the circuit. I have heard of guys doing this and blowing something on the circuit board.

    What Is Your Wish List From White’s In 2019

    I would love to see a Hybrid dedicated nugget detector with auto setup, auto ground bal, vdi. A machine that will allow me to compete successfully against the zed for those half gram to 2 grammers to 17" depth.

    Info On AT Gold, Rye Patch

    In my opinion its not the right time of yr to be detecting rye patch. Weather is very iffy this time yr out there. Super low nighttime temps, etc.
  8. I think the new hybrids coming will have all the bells and whistles in one box and work well for whatever you might want to hunt for.
  9. This Dedicated VLF multi IQ nugget machine may be something I am looking for in my detector arsenal. I hope to see it soon! I hope it comes with both a dd and a concentric small coil.

    White’s What Have You Got For 2019

    Whites has some killer technology Carl M left them when he went to Fisher. I hope to see that technology for sale one of these days soon. They have had the patents quite a few yrs, and I think there are machines in prototype for about 3 yrs now in testing.

    Feel Like Selling My Machine....

    You need to be on known placers, areas where gold has been found before of detectible size. Even if its old beat up patches that is better than out hunting just anywhere. Takes much research sometimes to find a decent area to nugget hunt. Not many places have nuggets next to the surface in the ground. Old timer workings with tailing piles from drywashers is also a good area to search out. If it was easy everybody would be very successful at it. Its not easy. Also I would concentrate on more remote areas with less access to cut down on trash. Lode mines are not the best areas to be detecting as there is much metal scrap scattered around, and most if not all the gold will be deep in the ground in such spots unless there are some tailing piles with ore dug from the mine. Stick with known placer surface gold locations and the more remote the better to help with the trash situation. Placer areas will sometimes have large dozer scrapes where soil has been hauled off to process if it was mined. These type areas can contain gold.

    Goldmaster 24K

    I hope the new machine will work well for you, be sure to keep us updated on what you think of the machine as you hunt and get used to it. I like the fact that it has a package where you get both a dd elliptical and a concentric coil. I am used to that small concentric coil on my GB2. That multi point ground balance on the 24K sounds like it may smooth out the usual glitchyness of a vlf.

    Will Equinox Pave The Way?

    What I mean by gpz technology, in general is, hybrid technology.
  14. I wonder if Minelab will build a dedicated nugget detector in the style of the equinox, but with gpz type technology. This seems to be the way the CZX by Fisher is headed. I think the Equinox will open up many more machines in the same style eventually. I would hope for concentric and dd coils and more power in a lightweight dedicated nugget hunting package.

    Concentric Coil For Equinox 800?

    I am sure you all have seen the Whites double Coil package that comes with the new 24K, a dd elliptical and a concentric. If whites can do it, I am sure minelab could if they desired. There is a lot more than meets the eye about the properties of a concentric on a VLF. Edge sensitivity being number one to me, also spot on pinpointing unlike the long thin coils overlap line of a dd. The first thing my hunting buddies wanted to know about my new detector, does the 6" coil have edge sensitivity, I had to say no.
