  1. That's unfortunate. What is it, something man made from a factory? Scott
  2. I also found a bunch of what I believe is Vesicular Basalt. There is about a 20ft radius of these rocks all over the ground along with Bedrock. I'm wondering if this would be a good spot to dig? Scot

  4. I also found a bunch of what I believe is Vesicular Basalt. There is about a 20ft radius of these rocks all over the ground. I'm wondering if this would be a better spot to dig? I can see the tops of bedrock also in this area. I will get a picture of this rock and post it.
  5. Yes, I understand between submersible and waterproof I stated the wrong word. I do mean submersible, there are a lot of streams that are less than a foot deep that I would like to detect. So putting a bag over just the coil and coil connection is not a bad idea either, just another protection barrier. The GB2 I was looking at comes with a 10" oval coil. Is this better for the 6 & 20khz setting and not going as deep? Is the 60khz used with larger than 10" to get deep penetration?
  6. I am just looking to put the coil and maybe a foot up the pole in the water not the control box. But your saying the connection wire that goes into the coil can't get wet?
  7. I'm going to go with the GB2. I looked and the Garrett Infinium but that would be better as a second detector and I can't really afford a second detector now. Does anyone know if the GB2 is waterproof?
  8. Thanks. I will take a look at those detectors. Scott
  9. I live in Massachusetts and the only gold in the North East is placer gold that was brought down form glaciers a long time ago. My question is which detector would be better to help me find placer gold? I'm reading that a lot of the gold around New England is in the form of flakes and/or small nuggets. I'm not sure if the ground is very mineralized or not and I know from my sampling many spots that there aren't alot of black sands like in the west. I do hit a lot of streams and rivers so something that is waterproof is better (I don't need to be going underwater with it but have the coil in the water). Thanks Scott
  10. Yes, all the bedrock is rounded at one end.
  11. New at Prospecting, but enjoy going out with the family looking for GOLD!

  12. Great news, found GOLD!!!!!!!!!!! The problem is there is no black sand and it is so small I was not noticing it but luckely I panned the dirt into another bigger bucket. I did have a few bigger flakes that I could pick out with tweezers. How am I going to get all these flakes out? I tried panning but most of the flakes were washing out when I got down to hardly anything in the pan. Also I remember the spot I got these from and I dug down in between two big bedrock pieces that were on a slope. I figured at some point in time when there was water going down between the rocks it had to be deeper in the ground. I only dug down about 30" and didn't hit bedrock bottom so I'm hoping that I will find bigger pieces. Scott
  13. The tops to the bedrock are rounded and sloping towards the river. Haven't seem much for other rocks because the ground is covered in leaves, branches and such. Here are a couple pictures I took this morning and took alot of samples from crevices. Will let you know if I find anything.
  14. Thanks, I appreciate it. I went out yesterday and took some samples from some cracks brought them home and didn't find any color. I'm going to go back today and shoot some video to show and see if you agree with my spots. I'm going to go deeper into the cracks and check some other spots also. The bedrock is up along and on top of the hillside that goes along the river which is about 50ft high and very steep. The bedrock extends probably 30ft on the top popping out all over the place and then there are houses and a road. So if this was an old river bank it was a looong time ago and if not then that is my question. Would there be any reason for gold to be here just because there is bedrock? Maybe with the video you will get a better picture. Scott
  15. Another newbie question. I found some bedrock that is not in a stream or near the edge, the bedrock is probably several hundred yards (if not farther) from the stream. Is there any gold found in these types of bedrock or should you only look at bedrock in or near water? Scott
