I have been prospecting for about 8 years now. I as many before me started out panning for gold, found a little and was hooked. From that point I started to up my game buying some equipment. About 5 years ago I was in a local prospecting shop in central Arizona contemplating which new piece of equipment I was willing to invest in to find more gold.
I have been using Minelab detectors for many years. I started with the E-TRAC detector and now I work with the CTX 3030.Detecting is my hobby, which spends all my free time.
There is an area in Sonora, Mexico, where I was digging gold nuggets with my GPX-4500 detector from Minelab.
Since I purchased the GOLD MONSTER 1000 I now found well over 30 pieces of aussie gold, more than any other detector I owned.
I was at Doheney Beach the other day with my X-TERRA 705 Metal Detector. I was soon approached by a young couple from Sweden who said they were on their honeymoon. They told me the husband had lost his very expensive wedding band at the beach. Only thing was, they lost it at a beach about 5 miles up the coast in Laguna Beach.
I was out in the water detecting for a few hours . I got a few gold rings and plenty of junk. I got a signal 12:24 on my CTX 3030.
I went up in the hills to go metal detecting along a gold rush era creek and after digging many shot gun shells I got a good signal, I thought it might be an Indian Head Penny. I would have been happy with that, but no it was a 1.2 ounce Gold Nugget !
I was just walking mountains and i come a cross with these babies.
