WTG Mike! You have answered the question on many minds. Were you using the Prospecting mode, with or without iron mask, sensitivity settings? Would love to know these things if you could list them. Also, how did the 70 react to the targets. Was it a high pitched whine or just a slight raise in the thresh hold. Also, what was the depth? I know it's a lot of questions, but I know many will be asking the same things.. Thanks in advanced.

Hi Richetts-I aws using the prospecting mode with the iron mask all the way up to 8-sensitivity set at 27-28-the X70 reacted with a slight raise in the treshold but when I got closer it got stronger as in the case with any targets-the depth was 2-4 inches-Thanks-Mike C...AZ

2"-4" on targets that small is great. I'd imagine you could get some serious depth on something in the 1/8oz range. I'm waiting to get my 5x10 DD coil to set up a test garden with lead shot/sinkers. Most of the ground in my neck of the woods is clay with a layer of black topsoil. And loaded with "clinkers". It should be a decent basis for testing gold abilities. Now if the glaciers had just left more nuggets instead of flakes and micro pickers, I would be really happy.

Hi Richetts-keep in mind that my settings might not work in your ground and also you stated test garden-lead shots-gold is more responsive to the beeper than lead will be-I have heard of glacier gold in the east-NH-ME-and where you live-out here most gold fields are in the hot desert- have fun and good luck-Thanks-Mike C...AZ

That is nice. I bet you did more than a happy dance. I would have had to change pants.
