Today I took my new detector to a local park and found 3 gold items in one hunt! I got a 14k claddagh ring, a 14k tiny woman's sapphire ring (maybe part of a 2 ring combo). I also got the badge and stone part of a class ring (no luck finding the rest of the ring yet).

Just curious as I have dug hundreds of low tones and never found gold, how many junk targets do you dig to get one gold ring?

man you wouldn't believe my junk bucket sometimes lol. One thing that helps me is that I have learned where the ring hotspots are in my town. I have spent 4 hours plus digging only canslaw and tabs and finding no gold. Today's hunt was about 3 hours and I dug about 100 holes with very little clad. This was an unusually productive hunt though. I would have to guess that the gold items have about 1000 junk targets in between them normally. I get this number because I usually get tired after about 100 holes and I find gold maybe every 10 hunts or so. If you watch the video you will see that I didn't cover much ground and my strategy for this hunt was obvious. I was searching a tight perimeter around the basketball court. I didn't even finish half of the court in those 3 hours.

Nice finds, maybe your ring got hit by the lawnmower the rest of it could be pretty far from where you found it.
