First hunt and Gold!

September 30, 2020 07:18PM
Shelly is a lady I have done some work for and through our conversations I discovered that she is an avid metal detector video watcher. She has a good knowledge of the basics and was asking about ground balancing, different frequencies and coil sizes. She has been wanting to learn how to detect but didn't know where to go so, I invited her along today for a couple of hours. We hit a spot were Cub Scouts have there gatherings and skill shops. There are lots of trees for shade and it well watered so the digging is easy - tree roots not withstanding.

I set the Racer 2 in 3 Tone with the 5X9 coil, showed her how to pinpoint and ground balance and off she went! She quickly got the hang of proper swinging and pinpointing and was having a ball. She decided to give the Simplex+ a try and on her way to the pavilion where the other detectors were, detecting as she went, she got another signal in the nickel range. She was disappointed to see a little kids ring, took a picture of it in the dirt and handed it to me for further inspection. "Shelly, this is no kids ring, in fact its 14K and is most likely a woman's pinky ring" She couldn't believe what she had found and neither could I. I have yet to find a gold ring, silver, yes but not gold.

I was working with the NOX 800 and was pleased to be able to find quarters, nickels and pennies with little effort. I found 3 stainless, kids mood rings and a $1 coin.

It was a fun hunt and I'm thrilled she had a good and very successful hunt. She will be joining the forum soon so as you always do, welcome and congratulate her on her great find.

Shelly was the 'gold getter' ... the Racer 2 simply helped her out. N/T
