It took me a few days of trying before I finally figured out that I should get off the desert floor and up into the dry washes of the mountains. Now I pretty much avoid areas where humans can live or camp, so if something "beeps" I know it is worth diggin' for. And for me, that is in the dry washes. If you get down lower most of the targets are foil, and while I did find an old bullet one time, I've dug enough foil to keep me out of the desert forever!
But it didn't take long for my White's GMT to find the nuggets up high! I've found a lot of these in and around Quartzsite. I found a 2.3 gram nugget I wrapped in a "nugget spider." The others range in size from tiny to an inch long! But the best part is that I keep finding them!Joe, Q, Arizona
The perfect metal detector to hunt in shallow waters, surf and deep water are metal detectors that are enclosed in a waterproof housing. Without the full protection of these encapsulated housings, no metal detector would be able to search in the water to recover those hundreds of thousands of coins, rings, and jewelry beyond the reach of a standard or All-Purpose metal detector and, water type detectors can be used on land with equal depth and sensitivity.
