Book Excerpt: “Developing Your Accuracy with the CTX 3030”

  Where there is not so much trash, open screen “audio methods” are more common. The idea is to examine a “composite” of a response’s features: consistency, tone, whether or not the cursor position is stable, target trace, and cross-sweep information. As a long time “reverse” hunter (acquiring signals in all metal and then checking […]

Book Excerpt: “Advanced Shoreline Analysis”

In previous books I’ve tried to teach hunters to understand the shoreline features that determine where gold will come to rest and be held. Learning about how these features operate is the difference between a focused, well thought-out hunt and relying on pure fluke. Let’s quickly define and clarify a few of these for later […]

Book Excerpt: “Where there’s one, there’s more.”

“Where there’s one, there’s more.” A top pro buddy of mine says this often. While there are certainly such things as “anomaly” finds, where you have ground that produces gold and silver consistently, there is always more to be found. These finds may be currently out of detector range. This is another important area of […]

Book Excerpt: “A Bit More About Target Classification”

37/ A Bit More about Target Classification I’ve mentioned target classification briefly in previous books—the process whereby objects are grouped within the strata based upon their weight and density. While I’ve always known this to be true–I didn’t know just how so–and how dramatically it affects your chances of finding some gold.  I also recognized […]

Book Excerpt: “Discriminate Problems”

8/ Discriminate Problems I find most of my stuff going in behind hunters who want to speed things up by relying on discriminate mode. The reason for this is because I’ve learned that any discriminate feature is basically at the mercy of conditions.  For example, there just isn’t a machine made that can consistently pick […]

Book Exerpt: “Understanding the Gold Signal”

21/ Understanding the Gold Signal Compared to the challenge of  finding gold jewelry at inland sites–coins are easy.  For one thing, as you go further up the conductivity scale, there are fewer targets–not so with the middle range.  Also, as the price of gold has risen, there is less around.  However, the amount of trash  […]

How I Hunt for Gold in the Water with the Minelab CTX 3030

The Sovereign and Excalibur were my first introduction to a kind of detector that has a heavily processed signal.  What I mean by that is that a lot of things happen in-between ground and headphone.  With this kind of machine, if your settings are correct–there’s a lot of benefits, but if you try to push […]

CTX3030 Scores Some Silver

Thought I would post this just to say what worked.  Obviously a ’66 quarter is nothing to run screaming with but here’s how I got it from a new park site.  First I looked for the old-growth trees.  Then I started hunting around them paying attention to the depth meter.  These readings were encouraging–showing targets […]
