The quality of metal detectors have improved considerably over the past decade, making metal detecting an exciting and growing hobby.

Gold Metal Detectors


Metal detecting for gold nuggets requires a completely different type of machine because of the highly mineralized soils that gold nuggets are found in. If you are serious about gold prospecting with a metal detector, then you want to invest in a gold-specific metal detector. While they will detect all types of metal, they are specifically designed for gold hunting.
