(A pencil eraser has also been suggested to me although I’ve not tried this). 2/ A good quality contact spray. When I went to charge my machine–there was no green charge light.  I’ve also had the problem of […]

My First Big Minelab Equinox Find: 34.9 gr. 18K Bracelet

Proceeds of a brutal trip–sick half the time. Bracelet is 18k 34.9 gr–a lunker. Also a couple of small bands one 22k and some silver. Kept at it though and had some luck with the Minelab Equinox–running in my 2 Tone “Pulse” mode. Also–I run at “19” Sens–seems to keep the audio more orderly–more of […]

Some Gold from the Last Few Years

Some Deep Coin Methods for the Equinox and Anfibio

Its unbelievable what these new super fast machines like the Equinox and Anfibio Multi can do at the old sites.   Anywhere you have old, original ground that’s produced before is worth “having another crack at” with one of these machines.  I’ve had good results with both by doing a couple of things: 1/ If I’m […]

The Early Days…

My first few gold finds (around 1981 with the Eagle 2–later XLT and CZ5), The signet “C” no less was my first gold– got with a buddy’s Garrett Deepseeker –state of the art at the time.  Then I bought the 6DB. The big sparkly white one  on the right also started it all.  Amazing with […]

Some Gold: Equinox, CTX and Excalibur / WOT

Still learning with the Equinox but getting better and better results.   About 8 of these are Equinox finds.  The high frequencies in the mix bring up a lot of ground noises and small micro conductors.  It’s a good consistency checker though especially when you learn to use the cross sweep.  Kind of wish that there […]

Securing Your Coils for Travel.

Seeing so many horror stories (and pictures) of damaged coils these day thought I would post this.   Even the trunk of a car can be a dangerous place for a coil with stuff being knocked around.  This is a good way to protect your coil once and for all.  Take a length of pool noodle […]
