  1. Mine lab should give us some performance data on nuggets in different soils. This marketing stuff is getting to be an embarrassment to MineLab. Have you signed up again this week to win a tee shirt?
  2. After I get my target out of the hole I pinpoint it with my coil. I always feel good when I get the target in my first scoop. I use this game to improve my pinpointing and recovery skills. The goal is to dig more targets and find more nuggets. Swing slowly, recover efficiently.
  3. A fantastic trip Lunk. This is an amazing feat on a strewn field where the Meteorite Men got nothing.
  4. Lunk, if you set up a trip and would consider additional people please let me know the details. Thank You, Randy
  5. The challenge of building a metal detector is optimizing signal to noise. The signal is usually improved by more power and different frequencies to “light up” the gold. Noise reduction is achieved through building “quiet” electronics so no noise is introduced into the system and managing the background noise. Minelab has been granted a patent for “modeling the ground”. The patent covers all possible mathematical algorithms including several examples given in the patent. This is a clever way of prohibiting competitors from integrating the ground signals into a map of the ground and subtracting

  7. Sara gave a wonderful presentation today. Thank you for letting us know about the event.
  8. Best wishes Norm for a speedy recovery.
  9. Lunk, Your knowledge, discipline and patience have yielded success again. Great way to start the year. Happy Golden New Year!
  10. Hi TG, Welcome to the forum. I have sent you a short txt. I metal detect and am a certified (but infrequent) diver. I love history and as a kid I cleaned boat bottoms and did a little wreck diving in Long Island Sound. Randy
  11. GB2. Reasons: My 1st nugget, most nuggets, analog tuning, few false signals and light weight. Still a viable afternoon machine on shallow ground when I am tired from swinging my GPZ and great for searching under bushes.
  12. Thank you Gerry, and I also need to thank you for getting me started. About five years ago I bumped into you at Rye Patch as you were about to start a class. You let me join. You, Lunk, Spencer and the team got me up to speed on how to use my GPZ giving me a great understanding of the settings and how to swing and listen. The detectors response to different types of nuggets was amazing. Each team member gave me different insights that have paid off. At that time the GM 1000 was just coming out, and I ordered one from you. This is the detector that found my nuggets in Salome, AZ. 😃
  13. Lunk, wonderful write up. Congrats on the Nevada patch last spring. That photo of your Mercury dime surrounded by beautiful gold nuggets is worthy of framing. The 19-inch coil is a beast, but you swing it like a precision instrument with remarkable results. Those tiny nuggets are fabulous finds with the “Big Rig”. I just got home from a day detecting north of Tom Wells. No nuggets today. New areas next week. There is a patch out there somewhere waiting for me. keep up the good work!
  14. Merrell's and Keen's have worked well for me. You can get either low-cut or high-cut versions.
