    bounty hunter Prospector questions

    just picked up one of the today when i got off work, followed all of the directions, in fact i had my wife reading them to me, so i could be sure and set it up correctly. first tests involved a nail, assorted US coins. the detector responded with each contact, then i got to the good stuff, my small jar of gold stuff that i had gotten from 2 bags of paydirt...........and here is where the problem begins, the detector did not notice anything in the container of paydirt gold........................if this detector wont see my gold on the patio, its sure not gonna see it under the surface of the ground out at the claim.........this is probably and older model of detector but i would think it would (even by accident) notice the gold in the container.

    any suggestions for doing anything to make the detector work?

    my wife is planning on taking this detector back to big 5 wednesday, to get the slightly more expensive detector, this one was 99$ the other one is 129$ if it fails we will take it back as well.

    The Detector will only see the largest gold piece in the container and not the accumulated amount of gold. Most metal detectors are tuned to the silver/copper range and not to Gold. If you are looking for a detector for gold hunting you need to get a specialty one that has the right frequency for gold. Most gold tuned detectors start out in the 400-500$ range. But you can sometimes pick up used ones off ebay for much cheaper.

    You need to invest in a detector that will detect gold, I don't think they are in the $129 range.

    Did you try a gold ring more volume and bigger size if your looking for nuggets on your claim you might need a Better detector it going to cost you more than 99-129
