    Hard Rock Detecting

    I have a gold bearing quartz vein. So far all the gold I've seen has been very small, almost microscopic. There are mines close by with similar veins that have had rich specimen ore. I've only dug down about a foot on the surface so far, but am planning on digging deeper. I am going to use the quartz on some building projects I have in mind so would like to keep the fractured pieces large. I would like to run a detector over the pieces in case there was any larger gold hidden inside. I have a Nokia Fors Gold detector with a medium size coil. Would I be better off getting a smaller coil for my current detector or trading it off for a different model, or falcon, keeping in mind the quartz pieces would be 5 to 30 lbs. approximately. Any thoughts?

    Run the Nokta and see what happens. It's too much of a gamble to invest more money and then come up empty. There is more value in a well designed building project made from quartz.

    Just because you CAN do something, doesn't mean you SHOULD.
