|Electronic Gold Prospecting|
"Nugget Hunting", "Nugget
Shooting" are common terms used amongst metal detector
enthusiasts to describe the art of prospecting for gold nuggets
with a metal detector. Nugget hunting is a field of gold
prospecting and mining, in which a prospector uses a specialized
electronic gold nugget detector to search for gold nuggets and
gold deposits near the ground's surface.
Do to the past rapid
advancements in computer technology, today's manufacturers are
able to tap into more advance digital technology and computer
technology to advance their metal detector technology. This has
resulted in advancements in many areas of metal detection
technologies including gold nugget detection. Electronic gold
prospecting has benefited and has become more popular. The gold
prospecting metal detector is an effective tool to discover
shallow gold nuggets, placer gold, pay streaks, reef gold, and
fine specimens in rivers, dry river beds, mines, beaches, and
old mine tailings to just mention a few.
There is gold yet to
be discovered on earth. One major key factor most people don't
think about when thinking about gold is the simple fact that the
historic "gold rushes" of the past where during a time when
technology was still relatively primitive. The "Old-Timer"
prospector of the gold rush days had to use the technology of
the day which was limited to human eye sight. The methods used
to enhance their eye sight detection were commonly a pick,
shovel, and gold pan. They also could have also used a dry wash
and screening method to help look though the rocks and dirt to
fine small gold pieces. All these methods where all manual hard
work. Gold recovery was low due to poor equipment design and
stress on the body and mine busting rock and shoveling heavy
dirt. Therefore, many of the gold bearing areas of the past gold
rush days have been left baring searched. The old timers gave up
in search of new "know" gold discoveries or simply gave up do to
health, lack of money to continue, etc. Today, these gold areas
are prime potentials for the modern electronic prospector.
To think the gold rush
days were the only time anyone could have found gold is foolish.
There is a very high potential for future gold discoveries
around the world and in places where gold was already recovered.
I have had this theory since the early days of my youthful
interest in gold mining and prospecting. I had done my research
reading books on the subject as well as visiting museums and old
gold towns of the gold rush days in western United States. The
best story that supports my theory is the story of the "Welcome
Stranger" gold nugget. The nugget was discovered at Moliagul,
Victoria, Australia by Deason & Oates many years after the area
was left by the gold rush miners and prospectors. The Welcome
Stranger is the world's largest natural gold nugget discovered.
A more recent fine is the
world's second largest natural gold nugget found in Western
Australia weighing 819 ounces (25.5 kgs) in 2000.
Gold is where you find it.
Simple fact of life. Gold is a basic element on earth and is
found throughout the earth. Gold has been found in 39 states of
the United States. If you are interested in finding gold without
to much research and luck, then look where gold has been found
before. Modern gold nugget metal detectors can now detect fine
pieces of gold down to the size of a pin's head.

Gold nuggets are rare natural
treasure not commonly discovered. Today many people are discovering the
pleasure of owning a gold nugget or starting a collection of
nuggets and crystal specimens discovered in different parts of the
world. Places rich in gold rush history add to the
appeal of gold nuggets recovered from those areas. Gold nugget jewelry has long been an attraction to many, being
that each piece is one-of-a-kind. Natural gold nuggets are formed by
nature and are uncommon occurrences on earth.
