Stick with any of the detectors listed at http://www.akmining.com/forums/showthread.php/13-Latest-Nugget-Detector-Recommendations-for-Alaska

In my opinion any detector that lacks a true all metal mode is not a nugget detector. The Ace 350 is a good little detector, and yes like any detector it can find gold if it is big enough and shallow enough. But stick to the units that give you the best chance. If the new prices are too high for you, get a used one.

Hey Steve, thanks for the advice! I was planning on using the detector on the dirt/gravel....that I shovel. Would this would eliminate the depth issue? If so,would it pick up grains or would that still be to small.
Price is an issue for sure, I was planning on using my Cabela dollars I've accumulated to purchase it.

Thanks for your time! really

The 350 will not hit the typical smaller gold. If it did it would be too sensitive for normal coin detecting.
