    Ever wonder where your thoughts come from?

    Man exists to know and acknowledge and live by the Truth.
    His reward is eternal life.His punishment for failing to do
    so is death.

    A gold "chain" (bracelet, necklace) is a bad type of piece to use. Use a SOLID piece for measuring. Even a small piece is better than a large amount of chain. A good solid nugget is the best to use, even above a ring. TTC

    Terry is right: A gold chain is a difficult target for ANY detector (assuming your talking about a fine/thin gold chain, with teensy links). Sure a bigger "Mr. T" gold chain isn't a problem, but the tinsel thin ones are. The machine tries to see each individual link (since they're not connected as a single piece of gold). The same exact amount of weight of gold in a ring or something, would give a much better response.

    There are some fine chains that are so hard for standard coin/relic machines to hear, that you need a pulse or nugget machine to find them.
    Metal detecting is my one worldy vice!
