    CTX 3030 gold chains.

    All three of these gold chains are recent water hunting finds from South Florida, I am hoping to get out tomorrow and add to the collection.

    Does the CTX 3030 pick up chains that don't have a big pendant or large clasp?

    I have found two small three inch pieces of a broken medium size gold chain with the CTX 3030 and 11 inch smart coil so I expect it will find gold chains without pendants. I will for sure post a gold chain without a pendant if I am lucky enough to find one.

    Thanks! I was curious since I know most machines pick up the clasps or pendants and have a hard time with just the links or rope. Good luck...not that you need it. You have the best luck!

    If these chains to remove the pendant, anchor and a big buckle CTX3030 / EXP / E-TRAK / EXCAL not be able to detect them.
    If this happens, even the depth is less than an inch!

    If it could pick up a chain I am surprised we haven't heard about that. It would be a very major selling point. Would be nice for Gary to make video picking up these small peaces of chain he has found.

    Just found this video. Looks like the 3030 can get medium size gold chain at an inch.

    did not pick this stuff up very well, and all of it was in a bag in a pile.
    THe old Stingray I had could do the job well on Salt water beaches... not the real fine chains but I dug a nice gold chain
    without a medalion, or clasp at night and did not realize it was 18k until I got home.
    I now use it as my test chain... no other machine I have found can do that...
    And another question is ... how does this work in the wet salt water sand ?

    Those blips, chirps and broken sounds would drive me crazy...do all Minelabs sound like that?

    So you say all of these were recent water finds, just to clarify, were they all 3 found with your CTX-3030?

    in a friendly forum, I probably said too much in the same topic ...
    because the subject is technically taken out of access ....

    theme created expressly to mislead the uninformed users about the gold chains and find them on the sea beaches.

    Hi yes sir, all three gold chains were found within the last 23 days with the CTX 3030 on three different hunts. The first one with the T-bar was found on May 25th all balled up in the rough surf, it sounded like a ball of aluminum sandwich wrap. The second one with the locket was found on May 29th in chest deep water, obviously an easy target . The third thinner one with the small anchor detected pendant was fanned out of the rocks on June 6th, so depth was not an issue. All three were posted separately on the day they were found.
    HH Gary.
