Has anyone on this forum been to Paradise Valley to detect? Any information from anyone that has been there would be helpful as I was debating trying it this summer now that Ganes is done but cannot find much information online.
Thanks, ezdave

Hi Dave,

Never been there. Everything I have heard is good with two exceptions. First, the area you detect is very small and second, you can only detect in a set number of hours. But despite these limitations Paradise Valley is about all there is going at this time by way of a location proven to have produced some very large gold nuggets for past visitors.

Found by Gale Herbertson at Paradise Valley (http://www.akpub.com/akttt/parad.html) in 2000 with a Minelab Explorer XS metal detector.
