People have been using metal detectors to find gold, platinum, silver and other precious metals for many decades. Metal detecting technology has advanced a lot over the years with manufacturers such as Garrett and XP leading the way in innovation. Not only are modern detectors more precise, manufacturers offer a variety of search coils to suit any terrain you may be hunting for gold or relics.
Since metal detectors work by sending radio waves below the surface of the ground and reading distortions in the signal when it returns to the coil, metal detectors detect all kinds of metals – not just gold. More sophisticated metal detectors and coils will provide a better reading for what is actually in the ground and can make really good guesses as to what the item might be, whether it's steel, iron, gold or silver. Quality metal detectors offer more sensitivity, higher operating frequencies and when paired with their right search coil, can handle heavily mineralized ground where gold is typically found. The better the detector, the better the detection!
Gold prospecting with a metal detector can be fun and rewarding yet challenging. The challenging part about using metal detectors for gold prospecting is that you will typically be digging up signals that you might not if you were hunting for coins or other relics. The reason for this is that gold comes in many different alloys, shapes and sizes. The same goes for gold jewelry which might range from a diamond ring to a small earring or a large men's ring. For best results, you’ll need to pair your gold detector with the right metal detecting accessories.
