Trevor Ferraresso from Miners Den SA

Trevor has been working in the prospecting industry since 1996 when he was first employed by Minelab in Adelaide. Working with the warehouse team he quickly became hooked on the hobby of metal detecting and was soon trying out the latest machine at the time, the SD2100. He developed a sound knowledge of how the detectors worked, however he was not able to find his first piece of gold until the year 2000 when he went on a trip to the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

He continued to work within the industry and learning more about coils, as he joined the Coiltek business in late 1999. He continued to invest more time into studying how the detectors worked and how they performed in the field, especially with different coils and accessories.

It wasn’t long before he was fortunate enough to invest into the purchase of Coiltek (2007) and also Miners Den SA (2008) where he works closer than ever to customers and prospectors. Trevor says “I get great satisfaction in seeing people have fun in this hobby and enjoy promoting the lifestyle and rewards, which can be obtained when the work is put in”.

Miners Den Get DiscoveringTrevor has good knowledge of all the current Minelab metal detectors and many of the older units back to the XT17000 and early Sovereigns. Today his main detectors are the E-TRAC, X-TERRA 705 and the GPX 5000. All of which have brought him success out in the field.

Trevor says “I always make myself available to help people along the way and strongly believe that this hobby has a great future”.


Palmer 2013 - Another successful event!

May 23, 2013 12:53pm

The years in between these events seem to go very quickly as all of a sudden the event was on. Held on the first weekend of May each year, the Palmer Crystal and Craft Fair incorporating the South Australian Detecting Championships proves to continue to be one of Australia's most attended events with over 100 entrants for the detecting sessions. Many of them pre-entered and the rest turned up on the Sunday ready to enter and talk anything detecting related.

This year’s Palmer Crystal & Craft fair was a great success. Along with the many tailgaters and stall holders, there were plenty of detector enthusiasts for the Competition on Sunday. This year there were 131 participants for the competition which is around 20 more than last year!

The right gear and a positive attitude

September 23, 2011 02:51pm

Right from the first time I heard of metal detecting I was intrigued, but never thought I would be in it to the extent I am now! This is most certainly not a bad thing, just amazing at how certain journeys take you on a ride which gathers momentum and don’t seem to stop!

I had always seen the odd detectorist down at the beach and around the parks and wanted to give it a go

Large X-TERRA coil - The wait is over!

July 15, 2011 01:52pm

For several years I have been receiving regular emails from X-TERRA users asking, “When will Coiltek release a coil to suit my detector?”. We have listened to these requests and I am now pleased to announce that the wait is over!

In a collaborative effort with Minelab, we have produced a 15-inch ‘All Terrain’ X-TERRA 7.5 kHz (medium frequency) Double-D coil that is fully compatible with Minelab’s VFLEX technology.

Palmer Metal Detecting Championships

May 17, 2011 03:30pm

Palmer Crystal & Craft Fair and Metal Detecting Championship - April 29th, 30th & May 1st 2011.

Having attended many of the Palmer shows over the years, this years’ event was set up to be a great one due to the donation of a GPX 5000 metal detector from Minelab – a first in the events history! Each year there is excellent support from the public and the detecting community who attend the show and this year was no exception. There were over 100 detectorists who entered the 2 one hour sessions which makes it a fun filled day.
