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.

X-TERRA 705 Gold Vs Eureka Gold

November 15, 2013 01:41pm

A question I am often asked is: “I’m looking to buy a detector, but unsure whether to get an X-TERRA 705 Gold or the Eureka Gold”. It’s actually a very good question, as it isn’t an easy one to answer as there are advantages to each machine. 
 
One of the main differences between these two units is that the Eureka Gold has three operating frequencies built in, 6.4, 20 & 60 kHz, whereas the X-TERRA 705 Gold operates on 18.75 kHz with its supplied 10x5” DD coil...

Pay Dirt DVD

November 01, 2013 03:56pm

G'day everyone!

For those who don’t know me already, my name is Gus James and I’m a Gold and Relic hunter! Getting into this passion at a young age, I have been able to grow and adapt my skills to maximize my results using Minelab’s amazing technology. Now having the world’s best metal detector technology is a great start, but there are certain things as operators we can do that will help track down and find more of what we are looking for!

A Tale of Greenstone Gold

October 09, 2013 10:10am

There are a number of different types of geologic settings that lead to the formation of gold nuggets. Some are rare, and some occur at many places around the world. One of the more common is associated with greenstone belts. Not every green colored rock is a greenstone, and what geologists are normally talking about with greenstone is a rock that once was black basalt on the ocean floor, but which has been subjected to the forces of heat and pressure that has changed the rock (metamorphic forces geologists call it).

CTX 17 Worth Its Weight In Gold Part II

September 25, 2013 09:00am

My last blog was about the advantages of using the CTX 17 while hunting on beaches and I must say that I am still pulling out some great finds, including a few more rings and heaps of silver coins (florins, shillings, sixpences etc.) that have been there for a long time. Next I will cover parks & ovals to discuss the advantages of using the CTX 17 and the Volume Gain feature for both shallow and deep targets. My settings this time, although similar to what I use on the beach have a few small variations.

CTX 17 Worth It's Weight In Gold

September 06, 2013 11:25am

Since writing my last article about the advantages of understanding the CTX 3030 to get the best out of it, I have spent many hours using the CTX 17 coil to see if adjusting the volume gain would make much difference. To my surprise and delight I have had some awesome results going over ground at the beach, parks and ovals that I had previously hunted with the CTX 11 coil.

Testing out the Minelab PRO-SWING 45

August 05, 2013 10:00am

One of the keys to success in metal detecting – whether you are hunting gold, relics or treasure - is that you need to keep at it. Success goes to those who are persistent and diligent in their efforts. The fellow who can only put in 3 hours each day will, in the long run, loose out to the fellow who is able to put in a full 8 hours or even more. It is especially true when you put in day after day of effort searching. You must not injure or wear yourself out.

The new Minelab PRO-SWING 45 harness

August 02, 2013 10:00am

If you own a GPX 4800, GPX 5000 or the new CTX 3030, you'll be interested in Minelab's new harness; the PRO-SWING 45.

All GPX models are supplied with a good quality harness, and the PRO-SWING 45 builds on this platform, taking it to a higher level.

The main inclusion with this harness is an integrated J-strut, designed to transfer the weight of the detector from your shoulder and neck, down to your hip...
