Recommended Posts

I have been gold mining for numbers of years,panning,sniping.I have been detecting with a buddy that has a minelab 4000 and a whites goldmaster.Got lucky the goldmaster found 1.5 pennywieght nug.Needless to say got the fever again.Would like input on detectors that can handle high mineralization I live in the sierraneveda mountains there is fine gold to 6# nuggets.Can't afford something like a 5000gpx. what about a goldbug2 or sd 1200 ?

If you need a detector to handle hot soils then a PI is the way to go. A good used Minelab runs between 800.00 and 3000.00 depending on model and will out perform any VLF in the conditions you asked about. Be aware that though we now find smaller gold than you can imagine with the newer models the earlier models will need to be upgraded with an amp or mods to better hear the little stuff. A PI will ignore fine gold in the soil for the most part...
