    Gold in Hawaii?

    In April I'm going to move to Hawaii Island of Oahu and was just wanted to ask the experts if the Hawaii islands would be worth doing any panning for gold. Thanks for the help

    don't try panning ,no placer gold-but get a good detector-the gold in hawaii is the best kind----------it's all stamped 10/14/18 kt.anda lot has diamonds and other gemstones already attached.if your really lucky some of them acually fit your finger right out of the sand!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8) 8) 8)

    RUN-don't walk to the beach closest to the most expensive resort you can find. In poor folks beaches(public) you find coins,cheap jewelry and toys. In rich folk beaches you find RIGHTEOUS HIGH GRADE JEWELRY. Proved this out many times in the OC years ago. Public Huntington beaches provide ok stuff but hit Laguna or Corona Del Mar and you make out by far better-go for the gold-tons a au 2 u 2 -John

    Re: Gold in Hawaii?

    Name of unit please--as salt water beaches are extremely hard to gb in as salt is a great conductor and causes trouble(wet especially) for cheaper units. Night time is crime time so go for early am and what is wrong with being the guy on the beach with the detector?? You ashamed of not being lazy??John

    Don't even think of trying out a cheap MD on the salt water beaches. They go off constantly on the salt.

    Re: Gold in Hawaii?

    umm that sucks, maybe i will just give the MD to my wife's little brother i think he would get more use out of it then me. the truth is i think i would get into it and my wife I'm sure would have fun digging for hidden treasure on the beach especially if she found something good.

    i was just looking at MD on eBay last night but might be hard to talk the wife into spending money on a real MD the one she bought and I'm embarrassed saying this it is a marsman metal detector professional grade $30.00 so yeah its cheap and being that guy well when i was stationd in hawaii the frist time we always made fun of the guys on the beach weaving in and out of all the people on the beach but i was young dumb and didnt have a care in the world but thought it would be lots of fun.

    What would be a good MD for someone starting out on salt water beaches in hawaii. I know my wife will be into it as soon as she finds something, she was all about looking for spear points till she didnt find anything and never wanted to go back.

    Re: Gold in Hawaii?

    We were just in Oahu. If you go to the beach over by the Hilton in Waikiki. Near the Army museum. Where the Atlantis submarine goes out. There are a ton of people hanging out and a lot of dry sand. Also I would assume Turtle Bay resort would be a great place to find jewelry. Going to Hawaii made me want a MD I must have drove my hubby crazy because when we got home he got me one for my b-day. Good luck!!
