Where is the best place to find a hoard

August 19, 2011 03:10pm

One of the things I’m often asked is; where is the best place to find a hoard? To answer this question you first need to understand why possessions were buried in the first place.

Looking at the hoards discovered in the United Kingdom, they seem to fall into two groups.

The first group consist of hoards buried in times of political calm. These tend to be random, concealed by individuals...

Three keys to putting your coil over a nugget

August 15, 2011 03:41pm

Last time I talked about some of the skills necessary to successfully find gold with a metal detector. Minelab makes some wonderfully powerful and well designed gold detectors, but of course no detector can find gold where there isn't gold already present in the ground to begin with. This post is about the art of prospecting - the skill necessary to get your detector’s coil over a nugget. In my personal opinion, it is this skill that makes the difference between successful prospectors and those who are not.

Prospecting with Iron Reject – GPX 5000 & GPX 4800

For this reason, it is usually best to recover all targets, especially when you are working a known gold producing patch. However, in real trashy areas, it can take days to dig out every bit of metal present, and it’s these spots that many operators walk away from. When used correctly, discrimination can allow you to detect these high-trash areas successfully.

August 05, 2011 02:37pm

The GPX 5000 metal detector has a Search Mode switch that is located on the front control panel at the top, just below the Threshold adjusting knob. The markings are: Deep, General and Custom. These are the names that Minelab decided to label them. The Search Modes could have been called 1,2 and 3, or any other sequence, but the function these Modes have are the important part. The factory presets for these are set so that Deep Mode can be utilised for...
