So, I decided it was time to start learning how to find gold on the Deus. I know there are lots of strategies for this. However, I wanted to concentrate today’s hunt on using zero discrimination with full tones. I wanted to see if I could glean as much information hunting the mid range, as I could the high, ie silver. So, off I went to a somewhat old ball diamond.
I have found a super deep mercury dime here in the past, on the edges. I think the dirt has been moved. So, I put the sensitivity up pretty high, to capture deep mid tones. As I went, I easily noticed big pieces of “can slaw,” or aluminum cans that have been cut up by the mowers. I also noticed the iron. This area has a nice assortment. An old home used to be close by. In fact, in the lower field I have found a large cent in the past.
I really started honing in the mid tones, as you can see by the pic. There were a fair number of nickles. I got fooled by some foil lids, small pieces of aluminum, etc. Not too much though. Much better than other detectors I have done in the past. I also got a jumpy signal that turned out to be the nike ring. I’m assuming it’s copper.
All in all, a good result. I’ll keep learning hunt for gold. You have to keep learning and practicing in this hobby.
