A Brief History: Falcon metal detectors have been available for over 12 years. The Falcon MD8 was first produced in Montrose, CO for the specific purpose of finding ultra fine gold and gold bearing material.
Currently produced in Mesa, AZ, the most popular Falcon model, the MD20, has become an industry standard for electronic probes of all kinds. Its high frequency of 300 kHz and unique electronic design have given it excellent ability to find super fine gold particles that other detectors and probes cannot find. The Falcon can find particles of gold barely visible with the human eye.
The Falcon’s superior ability to detect gold, silver, copper, platinum and other valuable metals in rock formations provide the prospector with a tool unavailable until now. Historically, tailings piles were created by miners selecting good ore from “worthless rocks” by sight alone. Millions of dollars of valuable ore were discarded because the miner couldn’t see the metal!! Those metals are still lying in those tailings piles waiting for someone with the electronic sight of a Falcon.
Falcon Metal Detectors is now announcing the newest member of the family, the MD20. With improved sensitivity and more power, the MD20 series of Falcons will give the modern prospector the ability to find gold in places never before detectable. Small enough to fit in you pocket and rugged enough to be used in the field, the MD20 will be a necessary tool for every serious prospector.
While designed with the gold prospector in mind, the Falcon has found many other metal detecting uses, such as:
