There's Gold in Them There Hills! Metal Detecting for Gold

July 04, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 179

Gold prices continue to rise all over the world. Gold tends to remain constant and strong in hard economic times.

Metal detecting for gold is increasing in popularity. With the right metal detector and detecting coil you can find Gold in Them There Hills.

Go to your library and research gold producing areas where you live. The internet should have a vast amount of information on that subject as well. Hopefully you will be able to find areas that will be productive in your search. Map out your plan of attack and get started.

For gold nuggets use a metal detector that is programed to find very small nuggets, as well as a bit larger nuggets. Of course the larger the nugget, the deeper your detector will be able to read it, however, you also want to be able to detect the very small nuggets. Some as small as a match head. Some even smaller than that. The more nuggets you find whether they are small as dirt or as large as a baby tooth, the larger your ounce weight will be and the more money in your pocket.

Now what about search coils? Larger search coils will read deeper and produce a larger, better ground coverage. The smaller coils are good for smaller nuggets and more targeted reading in the more undesirable soil.

Metal detectors have advanced a great deal in the past 20-25 years. Two very important advances have been the advent of the VLF (very low frequency) detector and the PI (pulse induction) detector.

VLF metal detectors on the higher frequency end are able to find gold as well as other minerals in the soil. You need to tune your detector to filter out the interference of the other minerals. The PI detectors ignore the interfering minerals and find larger gold nuggets and deeper depths.

Most gold detectors have a feature to manually adjust the ground balance. By doing this you can adjust the detector to filter out most of the iron content in the ground. This is not hard to do and you can become adept at it after just a few times out. You want to produce a minimum of false ground signals.

You can buy the finest gold detector in the world, but if you don't do your research on where the gold could be, you can go out with your metal detector 'til the cows come home and you will probably come up short. Go to proven gold producing grounds. Do your research. As I said earlier, you can find information at your local library or on the internet.

As always, when you do find places to look for gold, get permission from the land owner, and be courteous when detecting and digging.
