Great day to be looking for gold in AZ.

Recommended Posts

Wow! Talk about a perfect day for detecting? It was really nice out there. Hit an area we got two dinks from about 4 yrs ago. Wash got moved around a bit, and we were able to find this little fat guy. 1.2 grams. Not much of a story. Only down about 3 or 4 inches. It did give a very weird signal. Kind of a broken high/low.  Like a piece of small wire. Dont know why. Its fat and solid. Maybe the ground or something????

Yep Tom the ground likely and it could have simply near a hot rock, ground, black sand and on and on like you said. Having the savvy to stop and dig is a nice skill to own.

Thanks Bill.

 Yah, its was just a weird warble at first, after scraping with the boot a bit, it got more distinct, but still broken. Dig em all! :)

Kind of freaked me out when I saw it in the scoop. I was sure it was a wire brush bristle from the signal.

It is kind of cool how many of the odd signals are gold, even blanking where the signal is interrupted by a "null" Better dig..... Still an interruption of the threshold thus a signal with no sound....

Tom: Just for giggles maybe try suspending that Fatso from a thread and dangle it back and forth in front of a strong magnet.  See if there is any attraction at all.  If so, then likely there is some magnetite inside of it.  That may explain the weird response.  Just speculating...
