Metal Detector Training Classes with Chris Gholson

We are excited to announce that Arizona Outback will be kicking off our Metal Detecting & Gold Prospecting Training Classes this October 2019. These classes will be held in the goldfields of central Arizona in the Bradshaw Mountains on Private Mining Claims. This region is home to some of the richest gold-bearing ground in the entire state. Many thousands of nuggets have been found in these mountains over the years by metal detectorists, and many are still being found today.

The purpose of these classes is to provide the knowledge and hands-on training that is needed to increases a person's odds of finding gold with a detector. Some of the topics covered will include: Understanding the Detectors Controls, Ground Balancing, Proper Technique, Target Recovery, Pinpointing, Recognizing Geological Clues, Prospecting Safety, and Much More. Your host will be renowned prospector and author Chris Gholson, who has traveled the globe in search of gold with his detector. He has nearly 25 years experience and can cut your learning curve and put you on the fast track for success!

We can accommodate most all major brands of detectors, however we do specialize in Minelab. If you don't own your own metal detector that's not a problem - you are welcome to use ours! In fact, we have some of the most advanced detectors made by MINELAB Electronics on hand for those without their own equipment. Best of all, there's no extra charge for a day's rental! Also included in the price is a 3-day Claim Pass. This pass allows you to put your newfound knowledge to work and prospect on the claims for up to three days after your lesson. And of course you keep everything you find!
