     Hello White's,

I just spent two weeks detecting/prospecting/exploring in the outback of the Mother Lode country of California with my White's GMT. I am still learning the machine and was glad I had it with me as it was useful in my search for the yellow metal. I do a combination of old and new world prospecting and used the GMT to check my separated coarse and fine piles of dirt and then finish pan what the machine indicates is worthwhile. The included pictures show me with a 500' waterfall in the background in true wilderness country, the main river I was on and my gold pan with two lead bullets, four magnetic rocks, a dime for size and some gold "pickers" and fines. Without the detector I would never have seen the bullets, they indicate what size particles "could be" in the area and that's valuable information.

For my purposes it would be helpful to have the GMT control box and the screen more compact or removable from the handle. This would keep them safer in my backpack as well as facilitate more efficient use of the limited pack space and size which for this trip weighed 100 lbs going in and "only" about 70 lbs coming out. I'm still learning the controls on the machine and I'm pleased with the machines ability to blank out the background while leaving good targets easily detectable. I also enjoy using my 6000D Coinmaster as well as my XLT. Now, to find more time to use all of them!!

Regards,

Herb
