Getting A Successful Start in Metal Detecting for Gold
March 2015 by Michael GreyshockOnce you have a detector, learn how to use it and get out in the field—you can’t find anything with it in your garage.
Some will doubt its value given the ultra-fine particle size… Some will become encouraged about not having to incur significant time and expense to break rock.
What I hope to do here is to give you some information that will help you, the reader, pick out locations that will be better for you to detect and give you a possibility of finding gold.
As a gold prospector for the past ten years, I thought that I had a fair understanding of the steps necessary to find gemstones.
I will have to admit, I actually was brought to tears just thinking about what I had just done. I knew the gold was there, but I never thought I would be so fortunate to find such a prize nugget.
…early last fall, I found my first gold-rich patch along a few crevices in the same river and found five grams of gold nuggets in one outing.
A gold prospector in central Victoria, Australia stumbled across an 87-ounce gold nugget in early February 2015, after his wife told him to head outside to get some air. He had given up smoking a few weeks prior and was getting a bit “grumpy,” she told him.
One prime example is an area that I have talked about in many of my articles. This is a very large area and I will actually describe its location again.
