This is my opinion only and does not constitute advice of any type.
Gold miners typically head for mountains containing rocks and streams. They usually follow the rivers upstream sampling for gold all the way. The best way to start looking for gold is with a metal detector. When gold is found we look at the ravines or gullies on the sides of the river (always moving uphill) to follow the gold to its source, “The Mother Lode” Since erosion causes gold to travel down hillsides into creeks where it sinks and stays put until you find it. The Indians had a much simpler method, they worshipped their Thunder God. They would see where lightning strikes the ground scorching it black since gold is a superconductor making an excellent ground for lightning strikes. Gold is often found where sulfide minerals (like iron pyrite) have decomposed or oxidized in quartz veins. Volcanoes are typically excellent places to look for gold. #ApacheThunderGod

Minelab GOLD MONSTER 1000 Gold Detector Metal Detector
Minelab GOLD MONSTER 1000
Fully automatic operation
Extra sensitive 45 kHz VLF performance
2 search coils included
Easy quick start
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
Works on coins and gold nuggets. Discriminates between ferrous and non ferrous so you know if it is likely to be treasure or trash before you dig.
Waterproof search coil

With renewed interest in hobby treasure hunting focused upon old or “lost” gold mines such as the lost Dutchman goldmine a video camera drone quadcopter platform sure seems like the ideal tool since looking with my eyes is much easier than looking with my feet. The word on the street is that supposedly someone found an old Spanish saddle bag from the 1800’s laying on the desert floor near superstition mountain at apache junction in Arizona by a historical area known as the massacre site. The story goes that at some point in the 1800’s a group of gold miners leaving the lost Dutchman goldmine were attacked and massacred by a band of Apache Indians who had no use for the gold they were carrying and so left it where it lay on the desert floor for all these years. The internet is buzzing about someone finding one of those saddlebags and opening it to discover that it was full of gold. Many people believe that gold miners buried treasure all through and around superstition mountain because the lost Dutchman gold mine produced more gold than anyone could carry. Research indicates that superstition mountain is a volcano that has erupted five times. Many scientists believe that gold can form in lava flows and that if sulfur is present in the equation eight times more gold might be produced. Legend has it that the gold vein in the lost Dutchman goldmine is two feet thick in places and that it runs all the way through superstition mountain. A quadcopter video drone would be the perfect treasure hunting tool to survey the mountain sides as well as scour the desert floor while sitting in the shade of a patio umbrella. The hill sides are also said to be abundant in primitive cliff dwellings from some ancient or possibly even prehistoric people. There is no telling what kind of artifacts may have been left behind. I think it would be interesting to conduct video drone surveys (climbing to old cliff dwellings can be dangerous) and make youtube videos with the quadcopter video drone.
