Minelab magic

X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack

January 30, 2014 10:00am

Thanks for the certificate, cap, and bottle opener much appreciated. The results are from two hunts down at a local beach. It was a cool afternoon so I decided to put in an hour and a half, sometimes I get this vibe when I'm just starting off that it will be a good hunt, and most of the time I get into a different mindset and the goods come up every few metres it’s a great feeling. A few people come up and ask me about the machine I'm using, I tell them it’s a Minelab made in Australia the model and if they are interested I give a bit of a demo with a coin with the backlight on it looks quite impressive especially with the pinpoint mode on, most of them walk away impressed. Anyway a big thank you to Minelab for their great support and keep up the good work and great products till next time happy hunting.

Video Success Story

Gold class ring found over 2000 miles away from its owner and returned 14 years later. Tracking her down wasn't easy but I managed to contact her via Skype and her reaction was priceless. This one took some leg work.

I bought a Safari off a friend a few weeks ago, it’s taken me a few days to get my head around the tones as I’ve been using a Minelab Sovereign Elite.

we went to an old World War II camp which is now a football and dog walking field, my son and I went for an hour, set the safari in conductive all metal mode as seen on the Minelab owner site, we had only been there 10 minutes and got a hit of 20-24 ID, I thought that sounded good and dug away and out popped a 1939 German eagle spange 2nd class badge and a few coins, we were well made up!!

Golden Superb Holiday Ring

CTX 3030

January 08, 2014 09:00am

This is my greatest find ever.

It all started in my vacation, I was at the Island Ameland in the Netherlands. Like other years I always take my detector with me. In earlier vacations my E-TRAC and this holiday my new CTX 3030. And when the kids sleep, I go out a couple of hours to detect, while my wife stays with the kids at home. Hmmm love my wife for doing this...

Unknown Jewelry

Explorer II

January 08, 2014 08:00am

These past days was very warm in my town and I decided to go out on the fields. After much junks and an hour of digging, my Explorer II gives a good signal, a signal that I have learned over the past 2 years since I owned the  Explorer II, that is for silver. So I start to dig and in the bottom of the pit I see a quite large silver thing... I was shocked… and extremely happy because it is my first jewelry. For two years since I owned the  Explorer II I have never found jewelry.

Rings N Things


December 27, 2013 09:00am

Having a few hours to spare was good on Friday avo but the tide was high but it was still a successful afternoon. After calibrating the machine me and my son started walking towards the water first signal I got was a good one not too deep I was a gold plated ring nice surprise. As we made our way across the beach got a few more signals mainly being old coins anyway another signal registering 20 on the X-TERRA came up digging it up revealed a nice silver ring with little stones on it.

Santa Does Exist

Excalibur 1000

December 25, 2013 09:00am

On Christmas Eve I received a call from my hunting buddy who asked me to look at a Craigslist post about a lost wedding ring with a reward. I keep up with most of them and try to help when I can. He said I'm certain that is the Tung. wedding ring you found a few days ago. I had to go check in my can that I throw those rings with little value to me. Sure enough it was the very same ring.

2013 Season


December 22, 2013 09:00am

Greetings adventurers!

That's another detecting season. Much has been extracted from the iron littered ground, found treasures and new friends. This season unearthed an ancient censer which I was indescribably happy. X-TERRA 705 is very good device. It pleased me and my birthday. Second censer (bucket) was found the day after. By the way, it's a tradition. After buying X-TERRA 705 a year ago, Aureus was found immediately. Wish you all have success in findings.  Best wishes for Christmas Minelab! Good luck!
