First time with the GM

Recommended Posts

I picked up a used GM 1000 and was able to get out today for a few hours. First time defecting for gold and had a great time. Looking forward to the next time i can get away.  

I think I watched all of Bill's videos on the Gold Monster at least twice and was able to figure it quickly.  I think I'm going to watch them again. 

Found some lead and a small piece of gold.

Thanks everyone. 

So a question for the crowd. I was working the bed rock in a dry creek.  There a few spots with water and when I swung over them you get a signal.  Is that normal or can you turn the water out? Not sure if I explained that good enough. 

May rain so may get so more time to hunt.

Have you ever tried to dig a target under water?  Its the worst recovery effort ever.  With that said, you could try balancing over the water.

I spent 10 mins digging in a puddle to find out it was a false signal,  live and learn.

Congrats on the first nugget, and like Adam said try rebalancing above the water as it is a conductor and will give false signals sometimes.
