ALREADY KNEW THAT ! :smile: THANKS FOR THE PM doing good. Will have a video up of it hitting a gold earring and no other machine would tag it... except maybe the gold bug.

Would depend on the site hunting for jewelry.

Sites with a lot of tin,,Deus not a good choice.

My experiences.

Good! So thankful you are okay.
I have yet to find gold with mine. But here is a disclaimer: Maybe my coil never got over any gold. LOL!

I plan, on the near future, to go to a certain park that has loads of people going there.
I want to see if I can find any gold rings and other gold artifacts there. My plan is to disc out pesky pull tabs and up my chances of finding gold rings above that disc.
This way I will not waste so much time digging pull tabs.
I used to run disc on my Nautilus DMC IIb just to the point pull tabs didn't hit and got good and finding the gold. That was around 2004.

What would be your choice in such a scenario?

Tony, it may have been mentioned before, but you will have an uphill climb looking for gold if you notch out pull-tabs.

Pull tabs like gold rings do not land on one particular number. Could be 55, could be 81, could be 73, which do you notch?

You'll want to dig pull tabs, and other "round" sounding upper-mid tones. Look for that "pop".

Similar to real gold mining, finding gold requires patience and work, or a lot of luck. Sometimes all three.

Hunt the statistics, not the target specifically.

For the modern detectorist, silver is a byproduct of copper hunting.
Gold is a byproduct of aluminum hunting.

P.S. Don't associate gold with "nickle" as most do. Your nickels aren't nickle and nickel is magnetic, (That's why numbers bounce on nickle) so treat them as a separate class of target to avoid confusion.

Good luck.

The thing with gold is different gold 10k 14k 18k 22k in different weight so it will always hit with different numbers so I dig a lot of iffy numbers
As long as I don't get the iron grunt.

most parks will have the resident pulltab you know its the main one spot I been at its 68 all day and night long and I hear my head say you can leave that 68 you know what it is its a tab, and the other voice says the one you don't get down and get will be the gold ring :poke:

so the conundrum is which voice do we listen too :look:

all part of the fun :jump:

Indeed, some sites do have one particular tab more then others, it's a judgment call.

A few years back I was hunting a relic site that was getting scarce on high tones, so I let myself slip back into prospecting mode and started to dig some lower tones in this one area, at least I would get rid of some modern trash in hopes of unmasking something deeper.

At this site I started hitting one particular shape of beaver tail that hit on the exact same number, rock solid, shallowish round sound. After digging 8 or 9 of these in a row, I was starting to think about blowing them off, after all I knew exactly what I was digging. I was thinking this while I was digging a hole and started to encounter some mild roots, I was just about to pull shute on that hole, I wasn't going to dig roots for a pull tab, when BAM, I saw a 5 gram gold signet hanging from the grass roots of this plug.

The timing was amazing because i would have to change my turf hunting strategy going forward.
The bad news is that this meant there was a plethora of aluminum in my future. :surrender:

This is an older site that does not have the variety of newer "pry tabs", just an abundance of a specific ID beaver tail pull tab. To notch that would be to notch almost anything modern along with that particular ring.

In the end fun is the ultimate arbitrator.
If there is one specific ID causing you trouble, yet you have an abundance of other aluminum IDs, then in certain situations that may actually improve productivity. After all, every trash target avoided leaves room for another potential treasure target.

Looks like a gold sovereign

"There's no present like the time"

"A dog is better than me, for she has love and does not judge"

"Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most; That people are basically good; that honor, courage, and virtue mean everything; that power and money, money and power mean nothing; that good always triumphs over evil; and I want you to remember this, that love... true love never dies. You remember that. Doesn't matter if it's true or not. You see, a man should believe in those things, because those are the things worth believing in"

I bet you scoured the area after finding that sweet find!

Is a half sovereign about the size of our old $5.00 gold coin?
