I'm Rob Allison, welcome to my Nuggethunting.com Website.  This site will continue to grow in the future.  My nugget, meteorite and gold prospecting experiences extend from Northern Alaska, down to the lower Southwestern deserts of Nevada, California, New Mexico, Arizona and ito Mexico.  Widespread amounts of placer, along with lode gold have been found in these regions, which is part of the western cordilleran.  I'm amazed at the amount of placer gold that is still lying around in various states.  Economic Geologist estimates that there are still thousands of ounces of placer gold nuggets lying within metal detector range.  This range can vary from a few inches, to several feet in depth.  Many of the newer technologies, such as Pulse Induction (MPS, DVT & SETA), can detect larger metallic objects at depths of 3-4 feet realistically. History states, large gold nuggets, over several hundred ounces, were once recovered in the early American gold rush days.  Without a doubt, all of these large gold nuggets have not been uncovered.   With the use of a good metal detector, electronic prospectors not only add another tool to their arsenal, but also can cover much more ground, in return only adding to your chances of a good find!  Metal detectorist often find small alluvial and eluvial gold nuggets today.  Metal detecting has become quite the popular hobby within the last several years.

"What is Nuggethunting?" 

     Metal detecting for gold nuggets is also referred to as "Nuggethunting" or "Nuggetshooting." Nuggethunting is a field of gold prospecting and mining, in which the hobbyist uses a metal detector to search for gold nuggets & deposits near the surface.  Since the recent technology advances in metal detectors and skyrocketing prices gold gold, electronic gold prospecting has become very popular within the last several years.  The metal detector is a tool that can now be used effectively to find shallow free-milling gold pockets and pay streaks within both dry placer and hardrock gold districts.  Remember, the old-timers couldn't see the gold, so they used methods such as dry washing and screening to speed up their recovery process in the arid desert regions of the Southwest. Unfortunately their recovery was low due to faulty equipment design and operational errors.  Therefore, today many of these areas have been left high and dry and are prime targets for today's electronic gold prospectors.

"Why a Metal Detector for gold?"

     For thousands of years mineralized quartz veins and exposed ore bodies have been shedding rich float before the old-timers ever discovered them.  Due to vast amounts of weathering, many of these veins have now weathered out and formed hillside (eluvial) and stream (alluvial) deposits.  Many of the hillsides around idle rich gold mines may be dotted with gold ore and nuggets.  Today's detector technology, including the new Pulse Induction (PI) units can find pieces of gold down to the size of a match head.  With the use of a quality metal detector, prospectors can now increase gold finds by covering more area in a shorter amount of time. 

    Due to a high specific gravity of gold and millions of years of erosion and concentration, gold nuggets found the lowest possible place to rest.  Most of the time, these areas were drainages, and the old-timers conducted most of their working within them.  They dug down and exposed the rich pay layers of gravel at or near bedrock.  In arid desert regions such as the Southwest, drywashers were used the most.  The old-timers processed these rich pay streaks of gravel through crude drywashers.  Due to inconsistent air flow, poor design and overloading resulted in poor recovery. Some reports say the old-timers lost more than 50% of the values they processed.

  Many of these drywasher tailing piles still contain sizable gold nuggets that can be recovered with modern day metal detectors. Many of the drywashers used half-inch minus hopper screens, so anything larger was discarded and formed coarse tailing piles.  Many of these drywasher spoil (tailing) piles are still waiting for a detectorist to find them!! 

As metal detector technology continues to strive, more and more gold will continue to be found.  Many of the newer Pulse Induction (DVT) Metal Detectors, such as the latest Minelab GPX 4800 & GPX 5000 open up old goldfields for new discoveries.

Minelab GPX 5000 Metal Detector, Learn more about it here ...

The GPX 5000 sets the new benchmark in gold detecting technology. With an amazing range of features and functions the GPX 5000 is not only superior to its predecessor, the GPX-4500, and is in a class of its own. Featuring Minelab's exclusive technologies, Multi Period Sensing (MPS), Dual Voltage Technology (DVT) and Smart Electronic Timing Alignment (SETA), the high performance GPX 5000 is capable of finding more gold than ever before. From sub-gram nuggets to the elusive 'retirement nugget' and everything in between, with the GPX 5000, you can find it.

New improved electronics, new Soil/Timings and an amazing range of features combined with the legendary GPX ability to ‘see through ground’ mineralization, gives you a significant Depth Advantage over other detectors.

Using unique features, functions and industry leading patented technology ensure the GPX detectors run smooth and quiet in even the most severe ground conditions, whilst still maintaining excellent depth and sensitivity to gold nuggets. Serious detectorists know that GPX detectors find gold much deeper than ANY other detector, in ALL ground conditions. That's why we are confident to say we have the GPX Depth Advantage.
With more Timings than ever before, the 8 Timings available on the GPX 5000 change the digital switching and processing of the electronics in the detector. Each Timing has been designed for optimum performance under certain conditions, so it is like having a different detector each time you select a new Timing.
