Hitting the Hills with My GMT and 4x6 Coil

I went down to Sonora, CA. for 2 day trip to meet up with my friend to go out mining. We got out to the tailing piles and I turned on my GMT with my new 4x6 coil put my gain on 8, VSAT on 2 and threshold on a slight crackle. Within the first minute I got a nice zip zip, my first piece of gold then another one. My friend turned on his detector put it to the ground and it went off there was a piece right in front of him what luck.

GMT Doesn't Disappoint at Ganes Creek

I just got back from a great trip to Ganes Creek, AK... There were all brands of metal detectors there, but none found more nuggets than the White’s GMT. I found just under 2oz. It was my first trip to Ganes and I wasn't disappointed.

My GMT Rocks!

Days like the one I've just had are why I've loved detecting for more than 30 years. Already in love with my White’s Prizm 6T, I'd been promising myself a new White’s GMT for a while. I wanted something more geared to the goldfields over here in Australia. So I bought the GMT and am I glad I did. As well as finding gold it's also shown itself to be a great coin and relic finder.

GMT Works Great At Old Mine!
A friend of mine was telling me about a mine dump where he found a couple nuggets a couple of years ago. After asking a couple of times, he finely took me there last week. I worked next to the tailing pile and was blessed with my first nugget of the day. Within 20 minutes I found 2 more. While eating lunch I dropped the first nugget on the floorboard of the truck. I looked for 30 minutes but couldn't find it. I went back 2 days later to find my fourth nugget to replace the first one which I never found. All in all I thought it was a great two days....

White's GMT Metal Detector Finds Gold Nugget
"Last winter I met some folks that told me about Dome Rock in Quartzsite, Arizona, where the ground is covered with quartz and you can still find gold nuggets! So I bought my White's GMT last January from Kellyco and started hunting around Quartzsite - out in the desert -from January through the last part of March. It gets WAY too hot to stay in Arizona in the summer time, but when it's cooler I take my GMT with the DD search coil and my pinpointer out as far as possible. It took me a few days of trying before I finally figured out that I should get off the desert floor and up into the dry washes of the mountains. Now I pretty much avoid areas where humans can live or c...
