    Finding GOLD
    Bearkat

    Have watched all your videos with the ATX, I know that some are disgruntled with the results and the test parameters, but I would like to thank you for taking the time to give us a unbiased comparison. Good health and good hunting

    While watching this video Al I was hoping you would think about sticking the discrimination to max so we could see if the signal changes. That might be too deep a target, but if you ever have that nugget out there again, bury it at 10 inches or so, do the max disc and let's see what happens to the signal. Thanks again...

    Yea Jim I think I had a brain fart out there. I should have done what you mentioned and also I should have switched that GPX 5000 in fine gold to see the signal get degraded a lot, as well as in enhanced mode. I might do one more ATX - GPX for an encore, Lol.

    Coming soon, the silver nugget test with just the ATX!

    Looking forward to that test. Say have you done a similar depth test but against the Infinium? Not suggesting you do that at all, just curious if you ever have... with that big gold piece... similar to lots of our silver in size... it made me think about it, that's all.

    Jim.

    Yea; I have that on my list also to test against the Infinium......justneed the snow to go away! I do know from using my Infinium that it got a nickle at 11-11.5" and the ATX hit a nickle, with room to spare, at 15"...I'm guessing it would be similar results with the big nugget.

    Your numbers are pretty close to what I get here with Infinium. So, 15" ATX depth looks to be quite an improvement. I think you did mention it in one of the earlier videos.

    These videos have served a purpose regardless of the ground minerals there. Certainly you've given everyone a pretty fair idea of how the ATX operates, relative ATX detection depths there, and the sensitivity to small gold. And the necessity of properly adjusting the GPX to the search conditions for best performance. Without your videos and discussions, most of us would absolutely be in the dark about the ATX, so you know we interested folks appreciate what you've done to date.

    That's it for now Al... thanks again for the above Infinium information... it is good to know.

    Thanks for your efforts Al. I enjoyed the videos.

    Thanks as well for your time spent in shooting the videos and for your obvious expenses incurred while making them.

    You have the heart to investigate, and the mind to be inquisitive--both admirable.

    All the best,

    Lanny
