Metal Detectors FAQ

Metal Detectors are used to detect metal, underground, under water, in walls or hidden compartments. Metal Detectors FAQ are merely abilities of each machine and the questions are obvious, “Can I afford the metal detectors abilities?” Most metal detectors are bought with the hopes of finding treasure. Treasure is defined as anything more valuable than dirt. The most valuable treasure commonly looked for is gold and silver with coins ranking as the number one searched for treasure. Metal detectors will find other metal coins, rings, assorted jewelry and occasionally the super cache of ancient Spanish treasure or war spoils.

Over 90% of all metal detectors will only locate metal NO DEEPER THAN 15 INCHES. Larger treasures (bigger than lost coins) are deeper than two feet. The Spanish King enacted a “King’s Code” for finding all New World Mines and stored treasure during the Indian expulsion of the Spanish and Jesuits from America (1767). It was the death penalty to store, by burying, any smelted gold or silver LESS THAN 30 feet deep! Only the most expensive sophisticated metal detectors will reach these depths.

Metal detectors for hobbyist make up the largest consumer group worldwide. Beach combing, coin shooting or park scouring usually produces results. Metal detectors are diverse and can be found to accommodate your preference of use. Discrimination is the key word for all metal detectors. If you can not discriminate between worthless bottle caps, scrap iron, soda cans and nails then you will be consumed by digging and not finding treasure.
There are three major metal detectors; Short range, medium range and long range. The short range, (most popular), metal detectors are the conventional arm brace held “coil on a stick” that is waved over the top of the ground covering only the area the size of the coil (circle)at a depth of 15 inches maximum. The cost from Wal-Mart starts at $59.00 and some sold by White’s metal detectors, Garrett Metal Detectors, Minelab metal detectors, Fisher Metal Detectors can exceed $7000.00.

There is a lot of confusion regarding metal detectors with on-board computers and screens that “allow you to see underground”. No current instrument developed and sold allows you to see underground! Metal detectors find anomalies underground via a frequency (generated or received) that can be revealed to you by an audible alert or a visual computer compilation that fits the profile of a program installed on the machine. Most of the time the “visual effects” of metal detectors proclaim a treasure that ends up being one of thousands of non-treasure anomalies such as; matrix, magnetized rock, ionic deposits (too small to see or harvest), voids or just plain trash. Some of the other short range detector manufacturers are: Bounty Hunter Metal Detectors, Teknetics Metal Detectors, MP digital metal detectors, Tesoro Logo Metal Detectors, Cobra Metal Detectors, Pioneer Metal Detectors, Titan metal detectors, Automax Precision Pinpointer Metal Detectors, Nautilus Metal Detectors, and DetectorPro Metal Detectors.

Medium Range Metal Detectors are usually another completely different genre of metal detectors than the short range detectors. Most of these metal detectors have a depth from a few inches to about 30 feet deep. These machines are called pulse induction detectors, ground penetrating radar detectors, frequency generating detectors, underground imaging detectors and usually start at several thousand dollars and go up to as much as $24,000.00. These more complex metal detectors are NOT designed to coin shoot (find small targets). The medium range detector is designed to find increased mass. The best size would be the size of a dinner plate or larger. (Which incidentally would be a very nice treasure!) The medium range metal detector does not have a conventional appearance that is readily recognized. These detectors can be held like a suitcase with cumbersome antennae hoops emanating to the front and rear at the same time, (2-Box), a perpendicular bar held on an arm brace, a meter square frame suspended from the shoulders of the operator, coils, and hand held pin-pointers that point strait down at the ground but remain in a 1 ½” tube.

Medium range detectors are usually used in combination with the long range metal detector to verify the presence of actual metal present.

Long range metal detectors find treasure from a distance greater than the surface of the ground down to the target. The appearance of the long range metal detector can range from the bizarre “ray guns” to the sophisticated mysterious briefcases. Long range metal detectors are searching for an ionic halo emanating from the buried target. This halo appears after the metal has been in the ground for about a year. Each ionic halo frequency is specific to the metal that is buried. Therefore these detectors concentrate on these minute trace signals to direct the operator to the target area. The best machines can locate hidden or buried treasure from miles away. Discrimination is the key again with this long range detector. Every buried metal emanates a “ghost” signal that can cause you NOT TO FIND THE TREASURE. Be sure your long range metal detectors can eliminate this ghost signal. A hair pulling frustration with long range detectors is “residuals”! Residual signal is the ionic halo left in the ground AFTER the metal has been dug up! The residual signal looks exactly like a real underground, buried precious metal signal… and can remain in the ground decades after the gold or silver has been dug up. Since the ground has been used since the beginning of time as a bank and holding vault, millions of holes have been dug to hide secret treasure. Each of the people that buried the gold or silver had intentions for the treasure that did not include you, the treasure hunter. The burier had full intentions to come back and dig up THEIR treasure. MOST OF THEM DID! Long range detectors can keep you busy full time… until you dig you never know if you are on a target that is a residual signal or standing on top of a gold treasure! Long range metal detectors can cost as much as $100,000. Only a FEW of the manufacturers of this type of metal detector have been able to produce a machine that will truly find buried gold or silver from a long range away… (Note: Dowsers claim to use rods, maps and pendulums to find treasure many miles away, and is known as “map dowsing”, we do not dispute this method, but this topic will not be covered in this article.)

More manufacturers: Accurate Locators Metal Detectors, JW fishers metal detectors, Lorenz pulse induction metal detectors, OKM metal detectors, pro 2 series locators Metal Detectors, Pulse star pro 2 metal detectors, Proton metal detectors, Scanmaster Metal Detectors, Fisher Commercial metal detectors.

AS gold climbs over $1,400 an Ounce there is a renewed interest in metal detectors. Silver is over $37 an ounce renewing the benefits of coin shooting. Silver coins are worth more than 30 times the face value of the coin! Rings, jewelry, chains, coins, silverware, gold flatware increase the odds that you will find valuable treasure with your metal detector.

It takes years of practice and volumes of information to maximize metal detecting. If there are too many unanswered questions for you to jump into the metal detectors gauntlet, and you have a treasure target that you are ready to retrieve, call Underground Discovery for a free consultation. For those who would prefer to find the treasure immediately, call or email Underground Discovery INC and have the experts bring the latest equipment to locate hidden or buried treasure.
