More Tips on How to Find Gold with A Detector
September 2020 by Ray Mills
When detecting an area that has been cleaned to bedrock and you have new trees growing, always make sure you get your coil as close as possible to the tree. Why?
Down around 10 or 12 inches I hit a large cobble that appeared to be one type of hot rock for this area. I thought bad things about the new technology until I checked the rock.
...if you have a good, rich spot, hand-operated systems can produce some decent gold.
Our theory was that a dredge would collect far more material in a shorter period of time, leaving us with ounces of gold every day.
In some areas these channels were thousands of feet wide, and just figuring out where you are in some of these diggings is a challenge.
Hearty trees, shrubs and plants are a product of the soil conditions in which they grow, so it makes sense that roots near an ore deposit will take on nutrients containing metals if they are present.
After removing about six inches of dirt and cobbles, the sound was a bit more recognizable. I was now confident that there was a definite target and not just a ground noise.
The higher the sensitivity setting, the louder and sharper the signal from a gold nugget or other metal target.
