    [AZ] i'm planning my first hunt site location

    Hello everyone. I'm new here and have been studying about this new hobby for a month or so. Yesterday i ordered/received my first ever detector the Equinox 800 and added the 6 in. coil. (i'm*targeting*Gold)

    I've lived in AZ all my life and currently live in Queen Creek. I'm looking to make my first hunt near*Hayden, AZ, 75*miles SE of my home location.

    I also joined a prospecting club, The Roadrunner's Prospector's Club. My first hunt site will be on a RRPC claim.

    RRPC has 31 claims in this area. Below is a aerial view of what their claim areas look like. I'm hoping to head out there in a few weeks, It's going to be HOT!

    Welcome to Tnet! Good luck in your hunt. The Equinox is a great machine, although maybe not the best for nuggets compared to dedicated gold machines. It will depend on your site and the size of the nuggets. Have fun!

    The equinox 800 will stand on its own two feet when it comes to nugget shooting. Trust me on that one. Iíve been raking dredge tailings in central Az and have been finding gold with mine. Good luck prospecting.

    Thanks guys

    I used landmatters to get some interesting information. I took two screenshots. The purple box is claims from my club. The picture in my initial post was taken from here

    From what i'm seeing it looks like i might be in good shape for my first hunt

    I find a Gold Bug will find the tiny nuggets better, and a GPX or GPZ will find the 12+ inch deep nuggets better in most areas. The ground mineralization and amount/degree of hot rocks and other trash will play a big part in which will work the best.
