No idea, my tiny bit of gold wouldn't make my .01 scales do anything!
It was in a rock crevice so may not have been the original signal?? Suspect

This is the smallest bit I have found, dunno what it weighs as my scales are not sensitive enough to register it.
Was found with the following.
Detector:GPX 5000
Coil: Nugget finder 17" elip
Timing: Fine Gold
Rx Gain: 14
Stabilizer: 7
Depth: Was shallow almost surface.
Ground: High mineralization, fine Iron stone pebble wash.

.01 that would be small, I thought my .05 wouldn't be detectable, but it came with a signal, up till then the smallest has only been .2 nothing smaller would give a signal, I've played around with the settings a bit
