Bought a Gold Monster from Bill yesterday. Went out today and did some dry washing. Check my tailings pile and found nothing, then I checked the hole, still nothing. Packed my gear up and decided to play around with the GM. So I start up the hill just out of the wash I was in and within 5 minutes the GM was indicating a good target. Scooped some dirt off the top and it is still in the ground, did another scoop and now the target is in the scoop. Looked through the dirt and found this little guy. 1 grain. It was around 1/2 inch down. Was using the 5 inch coil with 3/4 sensitivity in the shallow mode. Searched the area for another 15 minutes then had to get going. Thanks Bill for the great deal on the detector and the basic instructions.
