Hey there John. My 7 year old daughter and I went panning on the Red Deer River for the first time yesterday. She found some gold and the two of us are very excited about the whole thing. The only problem is the flour gold recovery. Have not got a clue. Could you help out a fellow Albertan as to what you use to do such a great job with the seperation process? Thanks! Darren.

ArsenalFan,
The Scorpion isn't going to detect flour gold. If it's that fine, It would be best to gather the gold and sand/gravel around it and process it through a gold wheel. Google "gold wheel" to learn about it.
Good luck.

Hi John-Are their hot rocks in your area? If so, how do you search the black sand zones with them about? Thanks

Hi John- Question on this statement?

But, as in my case with only flour gold, I ground balance my machine, then run it just past the threshold of being stable.

What do you mean by "past the threshold of being stable"?

Thanks for your help

If you are calling that flour gold in your gold pan, my Gold bug 2 easily detects that size gold.

Garrett is still trying to sell the old technology, with the Scorpion.

Better off getting the new technilogy for about the same price.

Just as a side-note, detectors that can respond to a null are useful to search for stony meteorites. In fact, if you come across any odd-looking rocks that produce a null and don't resemble other rocks in the area, it may be worth a closer examination for other telltale signs.
