Hello, new hear an new to metal detecting. i havent actually purchased on yet, been researching which one to get and think ive narrowed it down to the Whites GMT. (soon as my tax return gets in im ordering it)
anyways, I am in Fairbanks and want to know of any good places to go find gold up here. im not really interested in coin or relic hunting, just gold. If anyone has any advice of places to go I would like to hear them. even if it requires a little flying, as i have an ultralite aircraft i plan on useing to get back into some untouched areas if i can.
i would lime to find a good area near here to learn my machine first though.
any thoughts? thanks ~Abe

Welcome Abe, Most Fbks. ground is deep and covered with Frozen Loess. Tailings piles or old dumps would be an option but need to have landowners permission.
