There are a few basic rules that you need to consider first and foremost when detecting for gold. The first rule being, you need to dig everything. You can never know if a signal is gold just by listening to the response, particularly if the object is sizeable or close to the surface. These areas are often around old excavations where there is a lot of trash that has accumulated throughout the years.
If you are looking into getting a metal detector or thinking about prospecting for gold with a metal detector there are several factors showed by the audio that will permit you to make an educated judgment on the probability of the depth and scope of the object.
The depth and scope concludes the way the object works when it becomes visible to the transmit field of the detector. The lower the object, the softer the audio will be due to the weaker field coming off the object. To an extent you can tell if the object is deeper, by sweeping the detector in a skillful manner. This can be done in various ways, one of which is discovering the object right under the detector then moving back where there’s no signal before continuing to sweep cautiously moving forward into the target zone paying special consideration to how the detector responds.
