Hi

Has anybody use or own a Falcon Md 20 Goldtracker?

I was wondering on your thoughts or experiences using them on finding minute gold in quartz.

Cheers

Thanks Grubstake, answers my question.

I have a quartz reef assayed at 15gpt so i might be able to handpick some specimens.

Hi Hotrock,

I've used one on a reef and while it was great at picking out chunks of quartz with tiny gold, I found it far quicker and easier to just put the whole lot through a rock crusher and ball mill and recover it that way.

While good, it does miss a lot and also sounds off quite a lot on nothing, even on the salts in your hand.
