    Gold Bar Best Settings For Gold Prospecting - Fisher Gold Bug Pro

    Hi,

    I was happy to receive my Fisher Gold Bug Pro in the post today. I purchased this detector soley because of it's high ratings in regards to gold prospecting.

    Can anyone recommend me the best settings for detecting just gold? I.e. Set up: "Gain", "Ground Balance", "Disk Level", "Disk Mode", "Threshold" "GG Pin-Point" etc.

    Please note:- I am new to these arts.

    Thank you, :



    Rian

    I hope nobody minds me posting this twice but I think I posted under the wrong Thread. I have just joined the forum and am enjoying reading all the excellent advice especially about goldbugs. One thing I do not understand fully is the advice given to run the Goldbug pro with the gain at 11 o'clock position. I experimented with a tiny gold flake using the gain at full setting-ie about 6.30pm but the threshold just sounding and the flake came through much louder at full gain. What is the advantage of running at 11 o'clock position Which the owners manual also advises to start off with)? Any advice much appreciated.

    I start by ground balancing it at 11 or 12 oclock then turn it up as high as possible without interference or chatter in discriminate mode usually can run it at 100. I think they just suggest it as a starting point. Also for beginners to not get overwhelmed with ground noises.

    I have not found any gold prospecting, but whatever the gold you find, expect the lower conductivity id numbers.
    Gold should be found from id40-up to heavy gold items, like coins , which could be up way there, depending on the size
    of your object......
    ...so, basically, dig every signal in gold country...!!
    ...and yes, even the very small, quiet signals...it could be GOLD!
    Be patient, and you'll be rewarded!

    In the field you start with the gain lower as the higher the gain the more mineralization is picked up and the less stable the threshold. You can increase it based on the mineralization and your experience understanding the sounds the threshold is making. It takes a while to hear past the chatter and variance in the threshold at higher settings in comparison to target signals. Lower gain settings actually give a better target response when in mineralized areas. Bench tests mean nothing.
