Saw it on Beyond Oak Island. Red, he said, was gold.
It showed on his screen red. He said, when they asked what the red was, "That's gold." I believe that little unit cost about 7k.There is no machine that tells you for sure it is gold as they work off conductivity and metals like aluminum and lead react the same or extremely similar to gold items.
Gold shows up red, on the screen.
they were probably using a GPR and even though it showed up in Red as others have stated its a probability it could be something else just as well as gold, I do not know how GPR's work but on some metal detectors have a probability meter on them, I will give an example using the GM 1000 (gold monster) made by mine lab it has a gold chance meter on it that gives you a probability of gold on one side (Non Ferrous targets) and a Iron meter on the other sideIt showed on his screen red. He said, when they asked what the red was, "That's gold." I believe that little unit cost about 7k.
The day they build a detector that can tell you exactly what a target actually is is the day every other detector will become obsolete LOL and I will be all in when and if that day comes but so will millions of others LOLHe might have said "that's gold" but it could just as well have been a pull tab. The technology doesn't exist in any detector, at any price, that can conclusively tell you what's under the soil. They only "see" conductivity.
