Modern metal detectors such as the GPX series, GPZ7000 and SDC2300 will detect very small gold, which can be very difficult to recover, unless you have a plastic scoop. Also high frequency/high gain VLF gold detectors like the Eureka Gold, GMT, Fors Gold +, Gold Bug 2 etc. are so sensitive that they can pick up your hand, so a scoop is a necessity.
Save time and frustration, and get on to the next target.
This nugget scoop is perfectly suited for recovering small targets, but is also large enough for scooping out loose soil from deep holes when detecting or panning, or even use it down on the dry sand at the beach.
Pictures show various nuggets* recovered when using the scoop.
