In this video we make our fourth visit to the site of ‘Malaytown’, which dates from the 1880s. Some great relics and coins come to light once again on a site that has produced many relics in the past – ‘keep going back!’ Thanks for watching and subscribing. Colleen and Warren.
The new Garrett Pro-Pointer AT is much more sensitive than the original Pro-Pointer. Shown is a 0.15 gram nugget which the new detector easily isolated in ‘maximum’ sensitivity mode. The Pro-Pointer AT has a real ‘sweet spot’ on the shaft approximately 1-2cm from the tip (where the nugget is resting), ideal for sifting through excavated soil in a ‘sweeping’ motion to recover those tiny sub-grammers.
A short explanation of the Discrimination feature on the Garrett ATX, and how it will effect detection of low-conductivity targets at depth. Setting any level of discrimination advances the time delay that the detector will read the return pulse from a detected target. The return pulse on small, low conductive targets (such as small gold nuggets) quickly decays and setting any discrimination may result on the loss of detection of these targets. We hope you find this short video informative, and look forward to bringing you goldfields prospecting videos in the coming months. Happy Fossicking! Warren and Colleen.
