    Welcome from White Plains, New York! Your best choice - in my never humble opinion, would be a Prescott, Arizona made Tesoro Lobo Super Traq. My students and I have found pounds of nuggets and pickers with the LST. Good luck to you!

I would suggest investing in a Fischer Gold bug M-scope or Gold Bug 2. A little higher in price and more technical to operate, but with the M-scopes 19Khz freq or the Bug 2 at 74Khz you just miss that gold! M-scope can be found for under $300 and Bug 2 around $500- just seen one on E-bay go for $510. Minelabs Goldmonster 1000 is another great choice at about 14 Khz. Happy hunting
    the GB2 is actually 71 KHZ and the Gold Monster is 45 KHZ

    The Lobo Super Traq as Mr Soloman stated would be a great detector to look at even though I have not used one have seen one in use vary good detector I do use the GM 1000 quite often and they are vary sensitive to small non ferrous targets I.E (Aluminum,Lead,Brass and Gold to name a few)

    higher KHZ detectors for small non ferrous and lower KHZ for larger non ferrous for VLF detectors

    Thanks guys. Much appreciated. I'm just starting out so I'm learning about KHZ. There aren't very many claims around here but the Mines. I'm sure there is gold in the Gila and tributaries near it. But there are a few legends around and word of mouth stories passed down that I know of.

    ooxdreddx Tesoros also come with a lifetime warranty and from what I understand are vary good if coin hunting also the GM 1000 was built specifically for gold detecting I am not real sure as to how a GM 1000 would be if coin hunting I have never tried hunting coins with my GM 1000,that is why in my first reply to your post I suggested the X Terra 705 it is a great detector for coin hunting but it also has a dedicated prospecting mode which works great it also can run three different frequencies but you have to purchase different coils to do that, I was fortunate when I purchased my 705 I purchased a like new used 705 that came with three different coils one of each frequency the 705 can run, have been using it since 09 when I coin detect the 705 is my go to detector and I do use it when detecting for Gold but I also purchased the GM 1000 which is a High frequency detector 45 KHZ which makes it more sensitive to smaller non ferrous targets the 705 can run 18.75 KHZ,7.5 KHZ and 3KHZ but like I said you have to purchase a different coil for each frequency to do that but by being able to run three different frequencies it makes it a vary versatile detector

    Check out the ghost towns USA website. It breaks down each state by county & alphabetical order. If you hunt ghost towns you'll need a small coil on your machine and a lot of patience. They are filled with tons of rusty cans. Wander away from the main areas where everyone hunts. DON'T QUIT!!! Eventually you will find an old coin or a saloon token. Good luck, be safe, hunt hard.

    Here are a couple of resources you might find interesting as far as doing research for gold placer areas.
    https://pubs.usgs.gov/bul/1355/plate-1.pdf
    https://pubs.usgs.gov/bul/1355/report.pdf
    https://pubs.usgs.gov/bul/1348/plate-1.pdf
    https://pubs.usgs.gov/bul/1348/report.pdf

    One is a USGS report for AZ and the other for NM including the maps. If you live in Graham county you might want to consider poking around in NM.

    There are lots of gold prospecting areas in southern AZ. If you do a search for the old AZ gold bulletins on the internet you can find pdf copies that are free to download. There was a famous writer or painter that took out a large placer deposit near the San Francisco river in Greenlee county. When you read that story and do the math it would have been pretty substantial in todays dollars.

    I don't have a dedicated gold detector, but was seriously considering the LOBO Supertraq by Tesoro. I have a couple of Tesoros that don't have any issues after years of use. I don't think you could go wrong with the Tesoro Lobo since it could double as a coin shooter.

    Wish you the best!
