  1. Real or fake?

    As reported on a British Columbia facebook page found panning in a creek. Fake or real?
  2. Buying it...

    Looking at this detector and also the ATX. Problem with the ATX is that apparently it was introduced over 10 years ago and I am wondering if there has been any upgrades or new tech put into the ATX since. The AT Pro on the other hand is new tech. Thanks in advance for your comments...
  3. Metal detecting washes

    I posted elsewhere about a project underway on a mining claim with my partner on Vancouver Island Canada. About 5000 ft up heavily forested (gravels, sand, sediments, soil) we are looking at washes (gold traps) that needs a detector to hit the 3 foot level (1m). We can reduce that depth my...
  4. Three feet down...

    I am involved in a mining claim project requiring a detector to reach 3 feet vicinity depth. The gold target is a cache of placer so a large target as opposed to pickers. I was told the ATX might be something to consider. Vancouver Island is the location...forested land, soils being mix of...
  5. Three feet deep?

    The gold detector I need is based on prospecting an existing, productive claim that could have "cache" placer or even small vein gold... in other words not pickers or flour gold but a good target. I am looking for a detector that might penetrate up to 3 feet. The location is Vancouver Island...
  6. Into a chamber

    Bit of a necessary absence...now retired, dusted off my Anfibio and am back aboard my sailing vessel seeking silver, gold coins from Sea Otter trade late 1700's to early 1800's. North Pacific Coast pretty much to myself as my ship is full liveaboard with woodstove....no commuting. A bit early...
  7. (boroscope, endoscope, snake camera) and any other names...

    I liveaboard (bucket list dream achieved) a sailboat in British Columbia sailing away the remnants of my allotted span. My interest has surged to use my 2 year old Anfibio for searching other treasures and not just packing my gold pan and pick. Reading some history lately of this historic and...
  8. West Coast black sand beaches

    What works? Seattle to Alaska along BC coast beaches have lots of Black Sands. I have a new Anfibio Multi that (so far) has not been able to function very well in mixed beach sands (usual light colored sands plus black sand interspersed). Any such thing as a discriminating PI? (I am...
  9. Macro Gold Racer - Salt water beach

    Will the MGR perform well at a salt water beach for coins and jewellery. Thanks
  10. Gold Racer

    I will be using my new Gold Racer on both dry creek beds and salt water beach estuaries. Just wondering if anyone has experience using the GR on wet salt water beaches and would have some advice about settings. Many thanks...
  11. Lac Seul Ontario

    Trip planned fish/hunt to this vast wilderness. I would love to have a reason to pack my gold racer along. Anyone familiar with the region? Any info much appreciated. Thanks
  12. update of macro headphones

    My order for macro headphones was refunded on explanation of an upgrade and therefore no supply which is news to me. Suggestions for next best bet for a gold racer. Thanks
  13. Macro Gold Racer

    ... had my new GR out in a steep valley/nice creek on Vancouver Island yesterday. Looked so good for gold I was expecting to see can can dancers. I could not get the GR to settle down no matter the setting. Lots of irregular threshold, chirping etc and the VDI jumping all over the scale. The...
  14. Gold Racer Question

    Hello.... just took delivery of the Gold Racer and have had several outings. No gold as yet but must say this is a pretty good coin detector. I realized right away the cheap headphones had to go. Makro does have wireless headphones but I am wondering if money is better spent on a different...
  15. Coastal north west prospecting

    Hello all... MDFG: So many great posts here; so much appreciated. Heading out soon to north BC coast. Picture attached of approximately the area of a late 18th century dust up (my research hopefully right) Brits vs natives. Targets are a brass item; Spanish silver coins; musket balls...
  16. North Coast British Columbia Reales

    Heading there to detect for reales at a long abandoned trading post. The trade was sea otter pelts for reales. Soils in this area are shallow over rugged coastal rock. I am thinking my gold bug 2 may not be the best bet for a detector. Any suggestions for a detector in these circumstances...
  17. Bucket List Oz

    Next year I plan to visit my daughter in Perth for 6 weeks. She asked about a bucket list wish for Oz. Told her a week or so trek across some wilderness outback swinging my TDI pro. So, I begin now to contemplate the prep list which I suspect would include taking the unit on a plane; Oz rules...
  18. On an island

    .... this afternoon off British Columbia coastal wilderness. No idea what it is... thanks
  19. Metal Detecting Coastal Mountains

    My "turf" is the British Columbia coast via sail typically from north Vancouver Island to Rupert spring to fall.... vast wilderness of fjords and island archipelagos which I seem to have mostly to myself. Uncountable creeks both visible and many that disappear just before entering the ocean...
  20. Spanish pieces of eight

    I will be working an old spanish outpost long gone from late in the 18th century that has had subsequent early 20th century logging use. My target is pieces of eight that my research suggests might be there. I expect to hit lots of old iron trash from this abandoned logging camp and therefore do...
