Filmed early 2014, I tried to find gold with a GPX 5000.
Unfortunately everywhere I tried to search had one thing in common, water! In the end I had to give up as the risk to the detector was just too great.
I found one small nugget on the beach as well as having good results panning at low tide.
I will return in 2015 armed with a SDC 2300, a detector that should be a killer in the jungles of Central America.
