Recent finds in Nova Scotia with the Falcon MD20.
Check out these tiny pieces. Not big enough to set off a standard metal detector, but little pieces add up to big $$$. Just ask Dave in NS, he will tell you why the MD20 is his “go to” machine.
More Canadian gold found by Dave with the Falcon MD20.

Paul finds 1/2 ounce+ nugget!
Paul found this 1/2+ ounce nugget this past August while working a claim in central Arizona. The 5 smaller nuggets pictured were found in
the same area a short distance from the large one. The Falcon located and pinpointed the large nugget at a depth of 12 inches! Paul was
shocked and so was I. Generally speaking, I might expect the Falcon to pick up a beer can at 12 inches but not a half ounce nugget. And
since many larger detectors have been used in this area why hadn’t they found it?
After considering the factors, I suspect the nugget was setting on end and had an oxidation layer (halo) which was detected by the Falcon.
If it was setting on end, the oxidation layer might look like a distorted football setting on end. Since the oxidation layer and the nugget are electrically conductive, the target would appear larger than the nugget by itself. Of course once the nugget is dug up the oxidation layer is destroyed. That oxidation layer may have taken several millenium to form, so reproducing the conditions of this find is nearly impossible.
The oxidation layer (halo) effect is noticable in coins in a few years and in iron in a few months, but since gold does not oxidize very fast, it takes many years. Many nugget hunters will tell you that they quite often dig a respectable target only to lose it when they dig it up. The target by itself may be too small for their detector to locate. Having a Falcon handy makes locating nuggets easier and may locate those “lost” ones.
Remember most nuggets we find may have been setting right there waiting for us to find them for hundreds of thousands of years. Pretty awesome when you stop to think about it!
MD20 TAKES A LICKIN BUT KEEPS ON …
” Hello Falcon folks, While prospecting at a old lode mine the other day I set my backpack down to begin looking for quartz & gold rocks when a larger boulder from up above came rolling down and hit my backpack damaging my Falcon Metal Detector badly, and also damaging my camera to the point it will not work. Amazingly after taking out my Falcon detector, I turned it on, and it still worked and I went on to find 11 rocks with small amounts of gold in them. What a durable detector you guys make. After arriving home I opened up the detector to find only the plastic standoffs were broken.Thank you for making a great machine.” – Jerry (Calaveras County California)

NEW MEXICO GOLD
Hardrock produces using Falcon
Hardrock Will used to wonder if he would find gold. Now that he has a Falcon, he expects to find gold each time he goes out. Checking for small gold in material that would normally be tossed, Hardrock puts the Falcon through its paces. He says “Wires are falling out of that vein right and left. I love that wire gold.”
Nuggets found by Hardrock Will
These nuggets were found by Hardrock Will in New Mexico with the Falcon Gold Tracker. ‘Hardrock’ Will works an area where there is no water. He has found a narrow vein which has yielded some real pretty gold. While you would expect the nuggets in the picture to have been found with a ‘BIG $ DETECTOR’, not so. You could not find these nuggets in the location with a typical nugget detector.
Small gold found by the Falcon
Everyone likes to look at the big ones, but the real money is in the smaller pieces of gold. The Falcon finds small gold better than any detector on the market. We have the gold to prove it. Nothing hunts like a Falcon. Who says you have to go to Australia to find big nuggets? Who says you have to pay BIG $ to find gold with a detector? Obviously Will has found his fair share in New Mexico using his trusted FALCON detector. “One day I hit three pockets. Those Falcons are the best! “
