EQUIPMENT FOR SEARCHING GOLD NOMBES AND PRECIOUS STONES
Search for nuggets in the river by detector.
The independent search for gold nuggets and rare minerals can become not only an interesting hobby, but also a profitable business, if you thoroughly approach the matter by acquiring high-quality high-tech equipment, analyzing the geological maps of the deposits and drawing up a business plan. Then you can go on an exciting journey and return to a wealthy man. In short, the business idea is how to make big money quickly.

Citizens who have registered FLP (individual entrepreneur), who have a permit of self-governing bodies at the place of extraction and, among other established requirements, entered into a single register of miners, can engage in prospecting. Mineral production of FLP is allowed only by non-industrial methods.
Despite the fact that gold mining has been put on an industrial level for more than a century and annually amounts to about 3,000 tons, prospecting has not disappeared and even develops thanks to the advent of new technologies and devices.
The search for gold nuggets is not an easy task, which requires, first of all, the right choice of equipment. The prospector’s main tool is a metal detector. The modern market offers hundreds of models with different performance and cost.
An interesting fact: according to statistics, the most significant part of the nuggets mined by prospectors is small-sized gold of a size less than 1 mm. The largest gold nugget was mined more than a century and a half ago in Australia and weighed 72 kg.
IMPORTANT FUNCTIONS OF THE METAL DETECTOR FOR SEARCHING GOLD

The gold search detector can be universal or specialized. Each of the options is presented in a wide range of price categories, but for the effective search for a precious metal it must have the following functions:
Discrimination. Gold nuggets rarely exist in their pure form and are most often presented as an alloy with other metals. Cheap metal detectors may simply not “see” a valuable find because of a significant percentage of impurities, especially at a depth of more than 15 cm. That is why a wide range of discrimination is important in the device for fine-tuning and adjusting search parameters.
The degree of sensitivity to small objects. Large particles of gold start from 1 mm and are very insignificant objects that cannot be detected by cheap metal detectors. To detect the smallest particles of valuable rock, it is better to choose a coil with sensitivity to metal both in the ground and under water.
Ground tuning. Very rarely, gold nuggets occur in clean chernozem soil. Their bedding environment is a highly mineralized rock, which is able to reflect the signals of the metal detector, greatly complicating the search. In river mouths, salt sand often becomes an obstacle to search.
The cost of metal detectors to search for gold starts from 70 USD and ends within 2000-5000 USD, depending on the specification of the device and the range of its capabilities. Professional models work at a depth of up to 2 meters, are able to operate at different frequencies (up to 61 kHz) and cut off excess noise, have a wide discrimination range (up to 50 segments) and can detect even the smallest particles of gold.
In the process of searching for gold nuggets, prospectors often find precious gems that are inconspicuous at first glance without processing. Therefore, each prospector should take with him special UV flashlights. The search for minerals requires the right choice of location. The quantity of precious and semiprecious stones is so great that the environment of their occurrence can be very different: from hard rocks to muddy estuaries. The following minerals are the most popular for independent search:
Natural minerals with high transparency and bright colors are a rarity. Most often, they require careful processing and polishing to achieve the correct shape, rich color, remove impurities and eliminate defects.
Gemstone Search Equipment
Everyone knows the fact that all precious minerals fluoresce in the long-wave ultraviolet spectrum of light. Therefore, special UV miners with light wavelengths from 365 to 400 nanometers are specially designed for miners. The power of one lamp should exceed more than 5 watts. Such ultraviolet lights allow the prospector not only to find expensive gems, but also to analyze their group affiliation, features of mineral fluorescence, formation conditions and even the place of stone extraction.
Precious gems in nature often look inconspicuous, but after processing the minerals, their value can greatly surprise the seeker.
