    That machine will find the gold and silver if its over it. Just be patient and the more you
    use the machine the better you get at it and understanding it. My buddie in Fla hunts the
    dry sand with a CM Pro and finds a lot of jewelry with it. Good Luck Hunting.

    Yep... Everything the others said....you gotta get your coil over it and you have to become one with your machine...that takes some time and "practice, practice, practice". Sounds like you are doing the right thing by digging everything so that your brain can learn the results of all the beeps and noises it makes. One thing for sure, as you know your machine more and hit better and more productive spots (another skill you will learn if you keep at it) you will no doubt see the quality and quantity of your finds increase. Every hunt will become better than the last, for the most part, and you will forever be lost to this great hobby.

    pakman... Recognizing the reaction of your machine to a given target is very important. You can't find something that is not there, so location is probably the most important. Good luck and welcome to the forum... Mel

    I have a VX3 and I haven't been fourtunate enough to find any gold jewelry yet eithr. An old saying I've heard is "gold is where you find it."

    I have the same model (CM) and have managed to findd some silver with it in coin form and even found a ring recently. Not gold per say, perhaps gold clad (?) but still jewelry . I think what the others said about location is probably right as well as persistence aka stubborness .
