which will be on display for future generations.
Treasure hunting throughout the years have not only
reached treasures and artefacts deep underground,
but also delved into the depths of the very distant past.
For decades detectorists of all ages have been
searching fields, woodland and the beach and for many
years to come there will be amazing discoveries of how
life in ancient times were.
Lower frequencies yield the most success for deep
seeking. When it comes to aftermarket search coils for
Pulse Induction metal detectors your choice will be
based on the size of gold chunks you wish to find. Large
gold nuggets are best detected by larger sized search
coils. For small and dust-like pieces, a smaller search
coil may provide increased chances.

very first metal detector during World War I. Early
hobbyists realised that such equipment could perhaps
be used to recover historic artefacts and treasures.
Military units however were originally intended to find
quite large steel clad mines rather than small coins and
other relics. They were also heavy, unwieldy and used
large external power supplies due to the need to be
used in battlefield conditions.
The very first metal detector was similar in appearance
to the two box / twin box techology. In modern days
the advancement in technology, build quality and ease
of use has signifacntly improved the experience of
treasure and relic hunters.
professional detectorists throughout the years.
Amateur detector users simply strike it lucky with hoards
which are easy to locate and close to the surface due to
natural conditions exposing them closer to the surface
and advance users apply a metodical approach to
ensure success. Choosing the right search coil size and
frequency can yield a higher success ratio. There are
general rules of thumb as well as certain factors such as
the type of desired hoard, whether a gold, silver,
jewelery or mixed. Most important is experience and
understanding the metal detector settings, and how
detectors work. The soil condition also plays a role.

compared to any other available for the Minelab Pulse
Induction detector range and offers two modes of
operation: Mono Coil mode and Concentric Coil mode,
changeable by a toggle switch. This means the user will
have to search coils in one package. Mono coil for

required without the need to physically change to another
search coil. With the fastest ground coverage.
