This is not my research. I found this on Facebook from an Aussie guy named Henry Clapton . Pretty interesting stuff.

BTW for those who are metrically challenged 1 centimeter = 7/16".

He states ---------------------------------------------

I chose the 10 x 6 coil as my primary coil and got started. I chose to do some basic tests on a patch of ground void of any metals. I used three sample gold nuggets as my test subjects. The smallest of these was a mixture of tiny nuggets making up one gram. I thought this will give the Gold Monster 1000 a good run for its money. I was mistaken. It hit the target every time with ease and accuracy. What made this test interesting is the fact that the nuggets in the bag were all very small.

I used the following: 

• 1 x 0.78 gram nugget 
• 1 x mixture of tiny nuggets, total weight 1 gram
• 1 x 1.79 gram nugget
My depth results were as follows:
 

Detect Mode 1 – (Gold, Iron reject)
• 1 gram bag of nuggets – Manual Sensitivity set at three quarters – 17cm
• 1 gram bag nuggets – Auto Sensitivity – 8cm
• 0.78 gram nugget - Manual Sensitivity set at three quarters – 17cm
• 0.78 gram nugget - Auto Sensitivity – 6cm
• 1.79 gram nugget – Manual Sensitivity set at three quarters – 22cm
• 1.79 gram nugget – Auto Sensitivity – 12cm

Detect Mode 2 – (Deep all-Metal)
• 1 gram bag of nuggets – Manual Sensitivity set at three quarters – 18cm
• 1 gram bag nuggets – Auto Sensitivity – 7cm
• 0.78 gram nugget - Manual Sensitivity set at three quarters – 17cm
• 0.78 gram nugget - Auto Sensitivity – 7cm
• 1.79 gram nugget – Manual Sensitivity set at three quarters – 25cm
• 1.79 gram nugget – Auto Sensitivity – 12cm

In conclusion, the Gold Monster 1000 is a super fast, sharp little machine. It’s extremely responsive and when used in its chosen environment I have no doubt it will perform its given task with ease. I enjoyed testing it immensely.

Disclaimer: Please note that my depth findings are by no way conclusive as there are many factors that will influence the detection of gold nuggets. My tests were conducted in a built up neighbourhood and in relatively compact and trash filled soil. Results may vary from user to user and area to area.

Rick ... Perseverance is the key ... or at least one of them ... it sounds like you have the right attitude ... only time before you get that coil over gold.

The Gold Bug 2 with Nugget Buster Head Phones screams over buckshot. immediately you know it is a nonferrous object. 

I hear say that the Monster is a display 24-bit processor that discriminates.

I can only add that the human brain is 100x the processor that a computer chip is and when your experienced brain hears the right sound it knows it's the right sound. 

Just saying
