Hey everyone!
I am looking for a chart of ground balance numbers for the ATP and the meaning in regards to mineralization? Anyone have this on hand or can point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Very easy with the AT Pro the higher the GB number the higher the mineral content in the soil/sand. Here in upstate NY, the Hudson valley region I GB at 87-94 which is pretty high I think :)

Thank you Austin!
Is there a number that I need to question as to accuracy in tones? Meaning is the machine equally accurate at say 65 versus 94?

The lower the mineral content in the soil the better the detector should be able to do, Less "interference" for the machine to deal with and process while also looking for good signals. Just make sure to GB often so the machine knows what type of soil its in.
