If You Found A Gold Nugget In The Last Year, What Detector(s) Did You

Recommended Posts

If You Found A Gold Nugget In The Last Year, What Detector(s) Did You Find It With?

 

This is an informal survey, just out of curiosity. For those of you who have been out prospecting in the last year (back to Sept 2014) and actually have found gold nuggets, what detector or detectors did you find the gold with? The poll is not meant to prove anything. I am just wondering what detectors are most commonly in use now for finding gold nuggets by those who are actually finding the gold.

 

I am posting this on the most of the active US forums so please do not post your answer in more than one place. In a week I will compile all the answers from all the forums and post the results back to each one. Thanks in advance for you participation.

 

I own a number of units but so far in the last year my gold was found with the Minelab GPZ 7000, SDC 2300, and a few nuggets in trashy areas with the Makro Racer.

GPX 4000 with 14" nugget finder elliptical mono and Fischer Gold Bug 2 w/ 6" coil

 

If I had a GPZ I would be finding even more nuggets for sure : )

Tom ... :) ... You're not supposed to let the new machine out early ... it's still in development and this is just the prototype! B):rolleyes:

Adam ... Slip of the finger! And my number '2' key on the laptop sticks a lot! Corrected to read SDC2300!
