Up until now, there has always been a compromise between frequency and sensitivity when optimizing detector performance, because lower frequencies are more sensitive to larger gold nuggets and higher frequencies are more sensitive to smaller gold nuggets. When comparing detectors, the three curves in the diagram represent each detector s ability to find small gold nuggets of a certain size, at a maximum possible depth. Most detectors will find a very large nugget just beneath the surface, however a detector s sensitivity to gold determines how many smaller nuggets will ultimately be recovered in difficult noisy ground at greater depths. An 18 kHz detector will normally have a depth advantage on nuggets 1.0g over a basic mid-frequency detector, and a 71 kHz detector will have a depth advantage on nuggets 0.1g. The advanced GOLD MONSTER 1000 uses an intermediate 45 kHz frequency AND a high speed 24-bit signal processor. This primary combination greatly boosts sensitivity to gold beyond that of other single frequency VLF detectors over a wide range of nugget sizes, without introducing excess noise and false signals. The GOLD MONSTER 1000 also has improved ferrous non-ferrous discrimination and copes better with conductive salty soils than higher frequency detectors, making it the perfect choice to maximize your gold recovery Automatic noise cancel Digital electronics Auto ground balance Faster processor Automatic sensitivity
Customer reviewsGM 1000 is sensitive to small gold
My first three times out with the GM 1000 I found no oro. The last two times out I have found 5 pieces of oro including two very small pieces like a pen tip size. So I like that the GM 1000 is sensitive to small gold as that s what I have in southern NM. I would prefer more depth but as I plan to follow the dry washers, hit bed rock and mine dumps, depth is not an issue. The key things I have found, is knowing the detector through practice and putting it over some oro to find in the first place. Now that I am past that, I can find oro. There are some helpful videos on You Tube by some pros Chris Ralph and Nugett Shooter Journals that can gave me lots of helpful info, specifically on the GM 1000. Like machine limitations and how to use it. I recommend these videos. I am happy with my monster and can find oro with it.
