Have you guys thought of or are working on ( which I would imagine you are) developing a way to discrimate aluminum the way you can discriminate iron ?

There'd have to be an underlying theory to guide the work. I'm not aware of any such theory.
I'm working on stuff, but not that.

Do you think there will ever be an underlying theory. Or is that too far fetched at this point

If there was a way to eliminate aluminum from gold jewelry that would be a tremendous technological breakthrough. Until then I'm saving up for whatever Daves working on because I have a feeling it's gonna be something very special.

To discriminate between aluminum and silver would be tough I think. I run the F75 LTD. I find siver dollars at 93 TID. Also mason jar lids and numerous other non ferrous metals. How many times have you dug up can slaw thinking its a quarter lol. It would be sweet if fisher could do it!!!. HH rick in mi



I can dig it!!!
F75LTD

AT Pro
Garret pro pointer

Assigning aluminum the iron tone without affecting the tones of the good targets. Now I'd buy that detector in a heart beat.

Sorry, 2MT, your next detector won't have that feature. It'll snag your wallet some other way.8)

Hopefully that some other way is is getting rid of aluminum or it comes with a tall blond and a cold six pack. If that's the case then count me in. :clapping:

Approx 60% of gold rings lost are in the foil range of your detector. If you can eliminate everything but foil and only dig foil signals, you would have a better chance of finding gold without digging normal tabs. In the foil range usually are beaver tails, large foil,can slaw and gold rings.....Jack

....of course much gold would be altered to iron too. :unsure:
As is, any conductive target notched out is equal to iron.
(Dave you want to....snag more wallets--add Tetris or video poker to digital units--for hot or rainy days.....that would be a first! :rofl: add a lens with intensifier tube for night hunting with
a mode so that you can see ahead looking at the screen :nerd: )

I actually dug a six pack of Coors after July 4th

at High Island once, 16" deep---but no blonds or any women of any hair color I'd have associated with that day, at the beach.
(had there been, she would have been digging for me) :biggrin:
a lot of these,

....and none of these,

Should have drunk the six pack soon as you dug it V. They all look better at closing time

Not interested in Tetris, video poker, lens intensifiers or seeing ahead in the dark. . Was just a question to see if pursuing a way to identify aluminum, audio wise, forget the numbers, as dramatically as we can identify iron now, was in the works. But I take its not at this point. I made a similar post on another forum and got this response.
The conductivity of aluminum is the same as gold, etc. yet the density, emi signature is dramatically different. Can this be audibly reported.
That's it in a nutshell. :usaflag:
