If you plan to do most of your hunting in and around salt water, you’ll need a specialty machine. For all purpose coin and jewelry hunting, stick to a single frequency VLF detector when first starting out. These are built more for salt water hunting and gold prospecting. This may be the biggest factor of them all, especially when you’ve never tried a metal detector. Different versions of metal detectors are available – as detector coils mounted below conveyors, directly integrated in conveyors or as fully enclosed detector coils with inlet dimensions up to 1,000 mm x 2,000 mm.
Control Box – the metal detector’s brain is located here alongside the power source. I always say your choice of metal detector is the best you can reasonably afford. High frequency simply provides better gold detection and a better chance of paying off your mortgage early. Whilst those machines can and do pick up gold, they aren’t as sensitive as a high-frequency machine, and you risk leaving that elusive nugget behind for someone else.
We have the best technical sales staff in the industry, we all have metal detectors and we all go metal detecting on a regular basis, combined we have over 60 years of metal detecting experience to help you the customer choose the right metal detector for your needs. Relying on 12 years of the experience in treasure hunting, we successfully tested the prototypes globally with metal detecting hobby groups. From finding coins at your local park, to prospecting for gold in Africa, or even clearing landmines in South East Asia, Minelab has a metal detector especially suited for the task at hand. While most metal detectors don’t give very accurate depth readings, the Titanium Camo fared the best in our tests and was an easy, fun metal detector to use.
Another example is when people try to use an entry level detector in areas like the pacific northwest where the soil is extremely mineralized. This one may sound obvious, but you’d be surprised how many people purchase a detector ‘completely blind’, so to speak, having never read a single review on the machine. Some folks think it’s silly to own a machine without a screen, while others are just fine with a Tesoro-type detector that features only knobs. Ground mineralization aside, there are a few other reasons why you might want to have additional coil sizes in your bag. When that happens, you’re forced to reduce your sensitivity, and thus reducing your depth.
All baggage, brief cases, purses, back-packs, sacks, baby carriers, patient gifts, etc., will be inspected for weapons by the assistant at the metal detection post. All visitors, patients and employees (whether off or on duty) must pass through the metal detectors each and every time they enter the building through the Main Lobby entrance and or Emergency Room entrance. Easy to carry and waterproof, it is ideal for use in many environments.
Don’t worry if you can’t afford a high-end Minelab right away; get an intro model and go find some stuff. Most new hobbyists tend to spend $150-$300 on their first detector. Anything below that isn’t really considered a detector – it’s considered a toy. What makes one detector better than another (like cars) is the additional features and enhancements.
All Metaldetectorshub.com detect metal – just like all cars drive down the road. There’s no quicker way to become frustrated with the hobby than buying a complicated detector you don’t understand. If no, then you’re probably going to want to start with an entry-level machine.
