More fun with the digging nuggets with the SDC 2300

Recommended Posts

I got out and did a little more prospecting with the SDC, and got 3 more nuggets, total weight 2.5 grams. The more I use this detector the happier I am with it. I took my brother in law out with me and with the external speaker gave him a few lessons in nugget detecting. there were a bunch of 22 brass shells at this one place, and I told him we needed to get these out of the way because they would block the detector from seeing smaller targets. Sure enough, we got them out of the way, and right in the middle of where they were was a fainter target. I told him that while larger nuggets would sound like those shells near the surface, most gold would sound like this fainter target. We dug it and it was the smallest of the three nuggets.

Hey Chris, It looks like the type of nuggets that the GPs might have trouble with in some cases. Rough and ragged nuggets always seemed to give a fainter signal than the solid ones.----Bob
