anyone have a coil recomendation for a gmt on Rich Hill


Recommended Posts

Not sure where OKC is (Oklahoma City?, Oakland County, CA?), but its rare that first time prospectors find gold. It can be done, and I am certainly not trying to discourage you, I just want to be realistic. The art of prospecting with a metal detector takes time and effort to learn, but if you put your mind to it, you can do it. Think of it like you are learning a new trade.

Are you a member of one of the clubs with land there at Rich Hill?

We live in Oklahoma City.

Not a member of any clubs yet, but we will probably join 24k after we get out there. we are going to try to come out next week if we can get some loose ends nailed down here.

We don't expect to find gold this year, more of a learning experance for us. I figure we will need all the help we can get , both people wise and equipment. With a whole lot of reading and research thrown in.

Learning a new trade requires study and hands on. Sounds like you both are heading in the right direction. I've never used the GMT but have friends that do. They all seem to be in agreement with Chris, the stock coil is a very good all around coil. Master it first and then you will know which ones to add to you collection. As for headphones, you will need to try them on. Each pair seem to work a little differently with each model of hearingaide. I personlly use Nugget Busters and single sided Rattlers. I have one ear that doesn't hear quite right so dual headphones sometimes throw me off balance. So experiment and see what works best for you.

If you ever come to So.Ca., drop me a PM and I'll see if we can't set something up for you. Be glad to help. I'm no expert by any means but I'm willing to teach you what I can. Metal detecting is new for me, been at it just over a year. Placer mining is my main taste but I hardrock mined for years(50 or so). Total cost: A cup of coffee.

Bill&Diana,

It would be a pleasure to meet you and go play in the dirt. It will start to get hot around here about mid-May so if you plan on coming this way at all, consider the heat factor.

Hi Bill&Diana

Another mining club you may want to get on with is Weaver Mining Company.You will find them on the right side of the road before you turn off to go to Stanton back up the hill. This is if you a coming from Congress.The cost 25 to 35 dollars and they have lots of claims but some say that they have been hit hard. I don't think any more than all the others but you have to remember its getting hotter so take alot of water when out.

I have a friend that lives in Bernice OK that I prospect with and he can show you some gold that he's found with my detector.If you want his name and number just PM me.

Chris is right you may be like me the first time I nugget hunted and went for three weeks no nugget but alot of trash. I say dig it all until you think you can trust your detector but I dig it all then I know what it is forsure.

There is not a lot of open land available for prospecting around Rich Hill that is not already claimed or is part of private or state land (also not available to prospect). To stay out of any trouble, be sure to join on of the clubs - 24 K or Weaver are both good choices.

Untill we figure out what we are doing, I think club land will be our safest choice.

The used sd2200d arived yesterday. Waiting on books and maps and the gmt.

Going out for new tires today, and start packing.
