  1. Do you X over the target. Remember it is not a cone under a DD coil it is more a plane coming down along the axis of the coil and the object could be anywhere along the edge. You have to start by moving your coil in a straight line (while swinging it back and forth) until you lose the signal and then run the coil at 90 degrees to your previous straight line you were moving on. The item should be under the front edge of the coil where the two lines had the last signal.

  2. Getting into this discussion a bit late but hadn't logged on in a while. I know some folks are saying typical granite but those photos look like it may be more likely what is called a diorite which would be mostly feldspar (and the feldspar can be fine grained not the typical blocky crystals), biotite, hornblende and pyroxene and actually very little quartz. Diorite sometimes does contain sulfides. IMHO. As we all know it is always tough to do geology by pictures.

  3. Another place to look at is in Lineville, AL called Alabama Gold Camp. East Central AL over towards the GA border. They have a campground at the site. equipment to rent so you can try highbankers or dredges, very friendly folks. check them out at their Yahoo Group. Would not go their expecting to get rich but you may find some of the gold stuff.

    You are too far north and the geology is wrong if my memory serves me right. Haven't been on the site here in a while so sorry for the delay in replying business and deer hunting was calling. The gold belt swings down through north central GA (Dahlonaga area) and over into east central AL. IF you don't know there is the Alabama Gold Camp in Lineville (they have a group on Yahoo), also there is the North Alabama Chapter of the GPAA that seems to be pretty active they also have a Yahoo Group. Alabama gold camp is on a small river and is good for dredging, sluicing, highbanking. They charge a daily fee and have campground onsite with equipment to rent and the folks seem to find gold there. I would suggest touching base with the NACGPAA (you don't need to be a member of GPAA to join) and seeing what they know about your area. FYI I live down in Randolph County part time and in Houston TX most of the time.



  5. I have been by there. it is about 20 miles from where my wife and I are building our retirement home. It has not been open that long. It is a nice section of stream with plenty of water for dredging or high banking. The owner of it digs out various areas along the creek for easy processing by high banking. He also has a camping area where you can park your trailer. No really large gold but if you work at it, there will be color in your pan. He will have rental dredges or so I understand. Also will have a small store for supplies. He was building the store when I was over there in November. met a couple from OK who were high banking and getting back some color.
