To be fair I have been deliberately targeting mullocks only. I have had a go on open ground and runs of shallow diggings but the GM appears to shine on Mullocks with white clay. You can really crank the sensitivity. It can be extremely noisy in other settings with river wash and pebbles etc. At least you have found colour and it won't be your last piece by a long shot, happy swinging!
Phil, I reckon it's the stones and pebbles for sure, I have operated my GM over water puddles and no issue.
Cheers GJ! You are right, mate. Definitely the stones and pebbles making it freak out. I did the hard reset, flicked it over to gold pinpoint only, but with sensitivity on 10 still (as I'm convinced it is better than any auto setting) and went back over a pile about half a foot under the water. This time, going extremely slowly, it was pinging on one particular rock. Came up with this bit of treasure. The GM is an awesome bit of kit! :Y: :Y:
Interesting to hear Phil, I haven't tried that setting yet. I have just been using all metal mode. I will definitely try it next time I head out. Is that rock a specie?
