Just in case you have not heard the news yet, the versatile waterproof CTX 3030 is more than just a master of discrimination on the beach and in the shallow water.

My Diary of our trip to Croatia 2013 - Part 1

December 06, 2013 08:49pm

In this 4 part blog series Gordon Heritage tells the story of his recent 8 day detecting trip to Croatia with fellow detectorist Steve Gaunt and Richard Lincoln. The main purpose of the trip was to see if Croatian rivers were worth detecting and to follow up on a medieval hoard site for missed coins. They were also there to promote metal detecting to local archaeologists and to show how detecting can be used for responsible recording of finds. 

In the opening part Gordon tells us about his trip to Croatia, meeting a few of the locals and getting ready for the detecting that layed ahead.

Maximizing your area - Part 2

March 05, 2013 10:09am

Even if you are not the talking type, there are so many other ways to get to the goodies. One is slower, but can really be helpful, and that is the library. Looking at old newspapers can tell of stories forgotten only a few weeks after they were written. Most small town papers kept all of the local stories worthy to research on the front page, with the rest of the paper open to National news or advertisements.

Maximizing your area - Part 1

February 15, 2013 03:47pm

Being successful at metal detecting can be a direct result of the area that you hunt, but it doesn't have to dictate how successful you can be. Whether you live in area known for Civil War relics, a highly occupied area where numerous coins are found, or rivers where gold is commonly found, the ability to maximize that area is what makes some hunters successful while others are not.

Three new X-TERRA coils from Coiltek

November 16, 2012 12:01pm

A little over a year ago, Minelab authorized Coiltek Manufacturing to produce the 15-inch All Terrain 7.5 kHz DD coil for the X-TERRA. Since its release, the medium frequency 15-inch X-TERRA coil has been proving its capabilities to coin-shooters and cache hunters across the globe. However, recognizing that there are many other forms of “treasure hunting”, Coiltek continued working with Minelab in an effort to develop additional coils for the X-TERRA lineup. These efforts have paid off in the form of three addition X-TERRA coils. They include a new 15-inch All Terrain Double-D at 3 kHz, a 15-inch All Terrain Double-D at 18.75 kHz and a small 6-inch Double-D at 3 kHz.

Which X-TERRA coil is best for me? - Part 4

July 11, 2012 10:16am


So where will you be hunting? Do you need a waterproof coil, or is water resistant enough?

According to Minelab, waterproof means it is submersible to one meter, making it ideal for shallow water hunting.

The X-TERRA coils that are considered waterproof include the 6-inch concentric at 7.5 kHz, the 6-inch Double-D at 18.75 kHz, the 9-inch concentric at 3 kHz, the 9-inch concentric at 7.5 kHz and the 9-inch concentric at 18.75 kHz.

CTX 3030 and the CTX 06 Smart Coil

May 25, 2012 05:12pm

My detecting has been taken to a whole new level by combining the 6-inch CTX 06 Smart Coil with the Minelab CTX 3030, a very lethal combination that I have aptly nicknamed “The Separator”.

It took some time to get used to swinging a 6-inch coil as you don’t cover much ground, a bit like painting a wall with an artist’s brush while concentrating very intently for the slightest signals. It is amazingly lethal due to the CTX 06 coil’s capability to move in between targets separating the ferrous from the non-ferrous with surgeon like precision

Which X-TERRA coil is best for me? - Part 3

April 13, 2012 04:10pm

There are several things to be considered when choosing a coil for your X-TERRA. In Part 1, I mentioned that larger coils detect larger targets deeper, small coils are more sensitive to smaller targets, concentric coils provide a more accurate TID, and Double-D coils separate targets better than comparably sized concentric coils.

The lure of the Gold Stater

March 30, 2012 04:32pm

In several of my blogs (and most of the interviews for MLOtv) the subject of gold Staters often arises. But what are gold staters?

Most European detectorists will know exactly what they are, but for the benefit of the rest of the world’s detecting community, this blog will cover a quick introduction to this fascinating coin group.
