Hi Lee
Was using the 10x6
The ground is very mild where all this junk is.
Quartz and granite sand and green stone, with the odd hot rock
We had to pump the coil up and down now and again when it got a little noisy

It amazing how close to the junk targets it can get, and ping out a sound of interest
Not a bad little detector for that.

Well another day with the GM1000
My brother came over this afternoon and asked if he could have another go with the GM

Sensitivity set at 6 ... all metal mode... 10x6 coil
Working in the trashy area near camp
He found his first bit of gold today near our van
Near this 40 foot hole




We then left him to his detecting, and went back to a patch we are working.
we thought it's time to get back to camp, as we saw the sunset.. looks like another great day for tomorrow


Once back at camp Tony showed us how he went with the GM
He said he was having a ball going through the trash..  oh my you need patience for that here.. lol
The gold is on part of an old pocket knife.. 0.53 grams.

well i have one and i think its a very good entry level detector for a beginner,also simple to use,lightweight with an excellent battery.
having said that i have yet to find gold but am working on it.
found plenty of rubbish with it and a lot of coins,well suited to beach detecting i have found.
already thinking of a more expensive detector but the goldmonster has more than impressed me so far.......mark

Does it GB to wet beach sand.

Yeah I know you like it Jen and have found gold with it.

Although it Seems as though the Monster is not suited to Aussie high iron mineral ground.
     From what I have read on other forums, Some people in the States prefer the Whites GMT and the Gold bug Pro over the GM.
My GB Pro will not detect small gold of a few grams through iron rocks one or two cm thick but it will detect them on the surface of such rocks. On the other hand the old Scorpion Gold Stinger could do that.
     I guess it is a case of using the right tool for the job and existing mineral conditions.

If it can handle the wet salt then it will be great for light weight jewellery.
How many people can say that they have found a lot of gold chains at the beach? Not many I would say.
Most detectors VLF or PI have very poor response to gold chain. So a good high frequency wide range .Auto ground tracker will do well.

My old Whites V-sat is very good on gold chain in the dry sand as is the Gold bug pro and the GB has the advantage of being able to get down to the water line and still achieve good depth on chains, not just near surface stuff.

The lightest 18ct chain I have found with a VLF is 3.5g and 23 cm long. This was found with a Whites Spectrum XLT which pinged it with ease in dry sand at roughly 6 inches down.

Am keen to hear how the Gold monster performs on the beach.

GM1000 Beach finds

Post  rockhunter62 on Fri Oct 13, 2017 12:58 pm

Well folks I took the GM1000 down to one of our local beaches for a couple of hours this morning.



For the first lap I had the sensitivity set on 9 which gave me a lot of moaning and groaning and numerous indications on the bar scale. Soon learnt to ignore these and wait for the higher pitch signals. Found that when I swing the detector towards the water I would get more noise than swinging away from the water. I checked this by facing the other way as well. The closer that I worked to the water gave more noise. Working the drier sand was definitely the better option. Found bits of iron, d shackle, 20cent piece, bottle cap, bit of alloy and several stones. These stones are not quite as light on pumis and a bit darker in colour.

The next lap was in Auto plus sensitivity and about 95% of the noise and extraneous indications were eliminated. Found bottle cap, sinker, hook, trace, alloy, iron, washer, nut, stones and bit of wood with the 2 4" nails. Definitely more user friendly in this mode.

The deepest items were the sinker and 20 cent piece at about 15cm. One bottle cap (newer cleaner one) gave an iron signal while the older rusty one gave an alloy/gold indication. All the signals were a higher pitch.

I am no GM1000 guru and these findings are just what I have learnt this morning. Many more trips to the beach to learn more and then I will have to take it back out to try for gold again. I am not going to give up on it and after today I have more confidence in it's ability and mine. Very Happy

Cheers

Doug
