Buy a Gold Detector Online
There are severalo ways of finding gold you can pan for it with a special gold panning dish. You have to dig up the dirt and swill it around in the dish wahing the dirt of the top leaving the gold to settle in the bottom.
You use to be able to find it in rivers or streams after the heavy rains.
This is the easiest and less back breaking. You move this detector back and forth across above the ground and when it starts beeping you start digging. Depending on the detector you have bought it may only detect a few inches under the surface.
Of course everything that causes it to beep may not be gold. It could be bottle tops, horseshoes, or metal of any description. If you are real lucky you may just find that elusive gold nugget.
What better way to make a few dollars these days with the great price of gold than fossicking for that elusive nugget. Not only can you find some nuggets, you could go down the beach or in fact any picnic area where people lose their precious rings, necklaces, watches or even money.
Buy a gold detector online and spend an hour or two early in the mornings or later in the evenings when other people have gone home. Friends of mine have lost wedding or engagement rings and they would have been lost forever if someone hadn’t seen their ad in the paper hoping that someone may have found them.
Ok, you are returning it to the owner, and you may not receive anything except a brilliant thank you. So what! It will be your good deed for the day and make a young couple really happy. On the other hand some people will be so relieved that they will offer you a reward. You never know your luck and if you hadn’t been out getting that needed exercise they would be very upset. So you are helping yourself and them.
It is very important to realize that you cannot fossick for gold on any National Parks, Aboriginal territory, cemeteries or in any town sites.
Types of Detectors
Detectors come in a variety of sizes and prices. If you really want to find something you need to buy something that can pick up metal at least a foot down under the surface. The deeper the probe the more you will find.
Yes you will also find old horse shoes, bottle tops, cans and many other worthless things. Then again you will find other worthwhile bits and pieces too.
