Sure glad no one scooped up my Gold when I had it for sale with the urge to use the funds to help buy a new camera lens.
What was I thinking....:shrug:

Did some more experimenting figuring out why I liked using the Gold in trashy school grounds.
You can actually disc out fairly larger sized foil, At max disc 5" iron nail I have here is no longer heard.

I do want the gold jewelry so my detector is set up in two tone as pictured.
SF on the dial indicates where Small Foil reports a low tone as small foil. Small thin gold rings still give a high tone.
In disc mode the small foil is disc'd out as are small iron nails.

How to ID trash can be a problem for most detectors, you end up digging it.
I have found the Vista Gold can give you some clues depending upon the depth of the target.


The secret is using the coils edge. All metal mode, 2 tone

Coil passes over
Small foil---- low tone. Use coil edge, again will give low tone

Iron nail gives double beep low tone. Using coil edge, single low tone.
Most iron will give a single low tone coil crosses over target as well as using the coils edge.

Canslaw gives a high tone. Using coil edge a double high tone

Good targets such gold, silver, copper, brass coins, etc. will give a high tone. Using coil edge high tone or a fainter high tone depending upon depth.


Canadian Clad Coins

$1 and $2 coins

Coil passes over them lying flat High Tone. Using coils edge, chopped high tone.

If buried on edge chopped high tone. Using coils edge high tone, exactly reverse of tones when lying flat in the ground.

Other clad denominations
Coil passes over them lying flat gives a high tone. Using coil edge, High low tone blend

All clad buried on edge, gives low tone. Using coils edge high tone, exactly reverse of tones when lying flat in the ground.
