Pictured is a quartz rock found
by "Die Hard" Tom Frank in the California Sierra Mountains at the
end of October 2001. It was only Tom's third time out hunting for
gold. Using a White's Goldmaster 3 he was working an area about fifty
feet from me. I had just pulled up the first small nugget of the day
with my new GMT and yelled at him that we were in a good spot. He
replied, "Dan you better take a look at this!" He was waving a hand
sized rock that he had found three feet from an old iron pipe sticking
out of the piles of rock. It had been laying on the surface of the
ground. I could see the glitter of gold from twenty feet away. We
don't know how much gold is inside the rock but there is at least
an ounce showing on the suface. We both LOVE our White's detectors!

For the past 16 years my wife
and I have been prospecting for gold with metal detectors on a regular
basis. This is not just for recreation, rather part of our business.
We have chosen White's Gold Master series for the past ten years as
our primary gold locator. Over the last few weeks we worked several
areas with different geography and soil conditions. After approximately
thirty hours between the two of us we unearthed 61 gold nuggets and
one small piece of gold on quartz matrix. My wife found 22 with the
GM3 and I, 39 with the new GMT. The largest is 9.9 pennyweight, just
shy of 1/2 ounce. These were my first outings with the GMT gold machine
and was pleased that with all of the new features that it was very
easy to learn. The auto tracking was faster than I expected and the
hot rock toggle prevented me from digging many targets. The visual
iron probability graph was a great help in deciding whether or not
to dig a questionable target. And the over all balance is not fatiguing
when putting long hours. My wife will also be using a GMT shortly
now that it has proven itself in the field.

Working the area where I found
this 3 oz. piece of gold in quartz was quite the challenge. This site
is not only highly mineralized but was also used as a dump in the
early 1900's. With the Iron I.D. on, and the V-Sat set at maximum
capacity, I was able to distinguish this piece of gold even though
it was inches away from a fragment of iron.

I can't believe how easy it
is to ground balance now with the GMT's Fast AutoTrac. I'm finding
gold in places that were impossible to hunt before. The GMT's Iron
I.D. "grunt" signals iron instantly. The bottom line is that I'm finding
a lot more gold, big and small, and having a lot more fun doing it.

My brother and I found these
nuggets in a creekbed in California with our Goldmaster . The largest
nugget is 3/4 of an ounce of fine California Gold.

My GM3 always read true to me.
The largest nugget there is almost a full ounce! I will never use
any other nugget machine because the GM has proved to be of top quality
and a proven GOLD HUNTING MACHINE!
