The EQUINOX Series is the all-terrain multi-purpose detector that obsoletes all single frequency VLF detectors. Equally adaptable for all target types and ground conditions… just select your detecting location and go! The EQUINOX Series has been designed for the serious coin & treasure enthusiast looking to upgrade to a high performance detector, without the high […]
Testing for Gold Scratch the piece to be tested over the surface of the black stone provided, press well so as to leave a visible deposit, preferably a line of one to one-half inches long. Please note: For the most accurate testing it is recommended that you become familiar with comparative testing using standard gold […]

The depth that a metal detector can detect a target depends on a number of factors: Ground Mineralization: A target in low mineralized ground can be detected deeper than a target in highly mineralized ground. The level of ground mineralization has a significant influence on detection depth. Target Size: Large targets can be detected deeper […]
The best places to detect for gold nuggets are where gold has previously been found, and surrounding areas with similar geology. So again, do your research to find out about historic goldfields. Such as: Tailings from goldmine sites Old diggings (areas where prospectors dug for gold in the 1800s) In or near streams where gold […]
When detecting for coins, relics or jewelry, use your imagination – anywhere people are likely to have left things behind – you are likely to make good finds! Also, don’t forget the places right under your feet; you never know what you might dig up even in your own backyard. To help get you started […]
Once you’ve made the decision to buy a new metal detector and get home with it, you no doubt can’t wait to get started with some detecting. But where exactly should you start? You can take your detector with you practically anywhere – the opportunities are endless and limited only by your imagination. Finds can […]
Ground Balance is a variable setting that increases detection depth in mineralized ground. This ground may contain salts, such as in wet beach sand or fine iron particles, such as in red earth. These minerals respond to a detector’s transmit field in a similar way that a target does. Due to the much larger mass […]
What are DD coils? A Double-D coil has two overlapping wire windings in the shape of two D’s. The benefits of a Double-D coil are stability (especially in heavily mineralized ground), good depth, sensitivity and a very thorough search pattern requiring less overlap. When used with GPX detectors, Double-D coils (unlike Mono loop coils) are able […]
Metal detectors work by transmitting an electromagnetic field from the search coil into the ground. Any metal objects (targets) within the electromagnetic field will become energized and retransmit an electromagnetic field of their own. The detector’s search coil receives the retransmitted field and alerts the user by producing a target response. Minelab metal detectors are […]
The three most common types of coil windings are Concentric, Double-D (DD), and Monoloop. The difference between these coil types is the pattern the wire is wound within the coil. Concentric coil A Concentric coil has an inner circle and an outer circle wire winding. Its search pattern is cone shaped and can be useful […]
The most common coil shapes are the conventional solid Round coils, the Elliptical shaped coils and the Open-web coils. The main reason for the change in shape is to conform to a physical requirement, i.e. the elliptical coil can be pushed around bushes or between stony country easier than round coils. Open-web coils help cut […]
The size of a coil can influence the detection depth and sensitivity of a detector. The larger the search coil, the deeper it can detect larger metal items. However, it is more difficult to use in trashy areas with less depth to find small metal items. The smaller the diameter, the more sensitive it becomes, […]
