Default Gold in quartz

Hello to all!
I have a question for you experienced detectorists. It has to do with finding gold embedded in Quartz.
How deep will the average metal detector detect gold in Quartz? I have a special spot I go that contains a lot of Quartz. The size of the Quartz I find varies from 5-30 inches in diameter; sometimes larger. I've waved my detector over most of this Quartz. I've never received a sound that alerted me that gold may be within. I've never crushed this Quartz down to smaller sizes. I want to avoid doing so whenever possible.
I appreciate anything that will better educate me on this subject.
Thank you! Tom (goodtom)
