    Win A New Minelab

    I can't do this because I'm affiliated with Nugget Shooter ... BUT ... Most of you can! I strongly recommend entering this contest. Even if you already have too many detectors you can always donate the new one to a worthy cause ... for example you're local club when they are raising money to support an elementary school program to introduce students to prospecting. Just a thought! Good luck.

    Welcome Judy ... Many times folks post when they are headed to the Rye Patch so keep a look out there for that.

    Try staying in auto (#11) or auto plus (#12) on the sensitivity setting. If the ground will allow it hunt in all metal. Be aware that the detector does not like changing heights. In short if you lift the coil more than a couple inches ground balance it manually. Always follow the ground contours. And finally when you put your detector on the ground to dig a target be sure to ground balance before you start out again.
