Using the XY Screen
« on: February 27, 2017, 14:00 »
Just wondering if anybody has tested the reading on the xy screen with a gold nugget and lead shot, do they look the same or are they different enough to pick the difference ?
cheers Keith

I'm not in a position to check, but I'd imagine the difference in shape would make the ability to compare the 2 difficult. Happy to be proven wrong.

If anyone wants to send me some gold nuggets, I'd be happy to test it for you.

The hodograph is really only useful for deciphering between iron and non-ferrous, which is still good for visual discrimination during gold detecting or for relic hunting iron contaminated areas. 

Small lead sinker and 3.5 gram gold nugget both get a straight line angled into the top right and bottom left quadrant.  Rusty iron buckle makes the line go haywire.

The XY screen is a good tool to use when in p10 goldfields on the did or not to dig.
I slide across to p9 hot to confirm if I want to dig target.
Lead/gold/aluminium foil all read very same as shape of nugget orientation of target (flat foil or lead) still stooges me.
But it does delineate close to each other targets better.

XY not a gold tool.
Its designed to tell you if the item is of a single metal and uniform in shape.

Great in the park, at the beach etc, But not much good on gold as it just doesn't come in nice even shapes.

OZ is on the money, use 10 to get a signal and 9 to do an iron check on it. If its not iron dig it out.

Hope that helps Keith
