hi everybody, I'm new to the forum and in need of advice. I've been metal detecting with my dad since I was 10, mostly coins and relics. My dad has always wanted to go to Arizona and look for some gold. So next month I'm taking him for his birthday.I bought new detectors to give us a better chance at finding something. We will be staying at wickenburg, so anyplaces near there would be greatly appreciated.

Talon, just a wild question, are you and Frank Barnett son and father? If so he has been gathering info for a while..if not, The AAMD is a good and inexpensive place to start...they have ground you can get to and camp on without hassle...and some nice gold is found by the lucky/diligent...928-427-6344

good luck

Fred

thanks for the info fred and silver dog. I have a place to

Start now. Should I get an aftermarket coil for my sd2200? Or is the stock dd good enoph.

Yes you should. Use the 10x5 Joey Elliptical mono Search coil by coiltek and Lightweight Round Goldstalker Mono Search coil in 16" these are the only one that I would use. I also have the SD2200v2. Even the coil that comes with it is good. Yesterday I dug a hole 2 1/2' (not joking about the depth) just to find a 22 cal bullet with the stock coil.
