Guide:Difference Between Deep Seeking Detectors vs Professional Gold Detectors

Difference Between Deep Seeking Detectors vs Professional Gold Detectors

  1. Price

The deep seeking detectors start from 350,000 Pakistani rupees and have the highest range of 700,000 Pakistani rupees whereas the high end, most expensive gold detectors which lie in the professional detectors category start from 860,000 PKR and go as high as 4,800,000 PKR. 

  1. Hardware

The coils of deep seeking detectors have a diameter of 1-2 meters but the professional gold detectors are not based primarily on coils. They have sensors which are capable of gathering information about metallic compounds underneath the ground surface. Both deep seeking and professional level gold detectors have option of upgrability, built in pinpointers and both are heavy in weight. The professional level detectors weigh more than 20 and 30 kilograms depending on the hardware.  

  1. Technology

Coils are not a matter of importance in both of these because the deep seeking detectors are based on Pulse Induction Technology, whereas the Professional level detectors are based on magnetic radar technology also known as magnetic sensor technology. Multiple sensors present in the devices not only detect the presence of several metallic components but also the structure and cavities of the ground beneath the visible surface. 

  1. Specifications

The deep seeking detectors are acapable of 6-10 feet depth underground, but it is multiplied drastically in professional level detectors which are capable of going upto 10 to 50 feet which is very deep for such technology to work depending upon several environmental factors and soil conditions. 

  1. Output Mode

Both deep seeking and professional level detectors have digital displays for the information regarding output of the gold detector devices. The advanced option of 3D graphical display is availble in both of the categories in gold detectors making it very more helpful in analyzing and interpreting the results. 

  1. Warranty and Spare Parts

Warranty and spareparts are available by the guaranteed high quality manufacturing firms based in the countries with trusted technologies and can be claimed by contacting the official distribtors in buyer’s territory. Spareparts if required can also be obtained by placing an order through them.

Uses of Gold Detectors

[The Ultimate Guide] Uses of Gold Detectors

Gold detectors are being used for several decades now, but over the period of time as technology evolves, people find more than one way to use and incorporate such practical devices in their lives, no matter what their professional orientation is. Here are some of the uses of gold detectors:

Detection of Landmines

Modern explosive materials comprise of many metallic components which enhance their damage level as well as give the electrical force to ignite the explosion. Landmines are one of them and because they are usually rigged underground, and can be wired or wireless. But wireless technology fails to work in presence of security protocol jammers so wire based mines are more effective. This is where gold detectors become useful to pinpoint the exact location of the mines so the security crew could safely extract on 2-4 inch depth and diffuse it. 

Pipe Detection

Pipes which are not easily found especially when buried around constructed structures or underground, then gold detectors and metal detectors could be used to see where is a metallic gas piping or sewage system so the actions could be taken according to it to ensure safety and prevention for their damage before digging around them. 

Cables and wiring

When the surrounding area comprises of populated area having several residential, commercial or industrial setups, then it becomes more likely that detecting cables and wirings become crucial. Gold metal detectors can detect and differentiate between different forms of electrical wirings including copper, aluminium wires etc. 

Stolen or Lost Metal Objects

The objects which were lost or buried accidently underground or underwater can easily be found if they are made up of gold or other detectable metals. We have seen multiple cases where people lose their jewelry item, handheld electronic devices and so on in some area they cannot tell, and these detectors come in handy that time. 

Diamond and Precious Stones in Jewelry?

Breaking up the element of surprise, yes diamond and other precious and semi precious stones from jewelry can be detected from gold detectors. How you say? Because of the possibility that diamond or those lost stones are embedded in a metallic component which holds it together with the piece of jewelry. For example if it is a diamond ring, it would be embedded in a gold or platinum base. So gold detectors are able to pick up signals for them. 

Underwater lost metal

Not only the metal dispersed under the ground but the one which was dropped into the pond or well could also be detected using many advanced underwater gold detectors. Because they are designed to work specifically in an underwater environment and pick up the magnetic rays from the lost object efficiently. According to a recent report, lacs of jewelry items are lost yearly in Pakistan. 

Treasure, Coins and Gold Nuggets

Although this might seem like the prime purpose of gold detectors, people sometimes forget how important this use is. Because it can be a mean of earning money with so much potential as the objects buried underground hundreds of years ago are hard to claim by most of the people in today’s world.

In Geological Research

Detectors can reveal various rocks with ferrous compounds or metallic layers embedded in the sediments over the period of their formation. So some of those rocks would respond to the gold detectors and these can assist in geological research. 

[The Ultimate Guide] 6 Categories of Gold Detectors

For the ease of setting up a huge array of gold detector based products, besides categorizing them based on the levels at which they perform e.g. beginner, intermediate, advanced, deep seeking and professional etc. there is one more way. This list is according to the usage requirements of the buyer whether they would prefer to have one for gold nuggets only, one for coins and relics upto the most latest type showing data in 3D outputs. Take a look at the list to determine what are the six categories of gold detectors based on their mode of utility.   

  1.  Gold Detectors For Gold Nuggets

The gold nuggets are small metallic objects which can widely vary in shape and form as well as weight but can be considered the smallest detectable objects by gold detectors. The detectors which are equipped for gold nuggets are usually smaller in size and lighter in weight, with a small coil which is able to detect minute objects underground. The depth is very low and price point is also very basic. 

  1.  Gold Detectors For Coins and Relics

The gold detectors specializing in coins and relics are comparitively more heavier and have intermediate sized coils so they can detect bigger objects easily. That is the reason why some of them ignore very small objects. The depth is not very low because the coil size is increased and they are relatively more pricier than gold detectors for nuggets. 

  1.  Gold Detectors For Deep Seeking Purposes

When the buyers require something which can only be looked into with more advanced equipment having high depth possibilities, then deep seeking purposes are conveyed and such detectors are recommended. They are very heavy and a single person cannot carry it themselves. The depth is increased and many vital functions like ground balance, digital display etc. is present. 

  1.  Multipurpose Gold Detectors 

The gold detectors which are equipped to find small to large objects under varying depths all at the same time are called multipurpose detectors. They have several options to switch to and from in different cases as well as various interchangeable hardware attachment options are also present. 

  1.  Waterproof or Underwater Gold Detectors

The detectors which are specially designed to work in extreme weather conditions like when it is raining outside or when the users would like to check the presence of gold items under the surface of water. These type of detectors come in three variation, one the most basic form is when only the coil is waterproofed. The second one is where the hole detector including the coil, shaft and control unit is made waterproof or also known as weather proof. Last is the one which can be completely immersed below the water and it will not damage the machine or its detection functionality, these are underwater gold detectors.

  1.  3D Professional Gold Detectors

The Gold detectors which are well equipped with the most precise and best quality data output generation are 3D professional gold detectors. They have either a built in backlit digital display or can be connected to external devices through third party software which then helps generate various types of data in form of very intuitive and engaging 3D graphs. 

Which Gold Detector is Best to Buy

The gold detectors have a wide variety of models and variants which are specifically designed for a different usage situation so it becomes very crucial to decide which one will be perfect for your unique situation. However, for the ease of your decision to choose the Gold detector which is best to buy for you among all, we have classified the main requirements of your information about the unique situation into three heads, purpose, the requirement of discrimination and well as soil condition. And the purposes of buying are further classified into four sub-categories.

Purpose of Buying

The people, the area or the stories surrounding you might suggest some cues about how and why you will be requiring a new gold detector. Here are four basic reasons why you would want a detector:

  • Gold Nuggets

Gold nuggets are small chunks of gold which can be as small as the tip of a ballpoint pen and as huge as a handful. They are usually bigger than fine gold or powdered gold in particles which cannot be detected by metal detectors. 

  • Treasure Hunting

Treasure hunting includes looking for items which are usually bigger than gold nuggets and can have various sized objects including gold coins, gold relics, gold statues, etc. They are usually used at locations where you already have an idea about some buried objects.

  • Underwater

The purpose of using gold detectors solely underwater to find and grab gold items from water bodies including lakes, canals, streams, ponds, or to some extent, sea, and ocean.

 

  • Multipurpose

This is the more generalized purpose where the buyer may not know what specifically he or she wants and requires versatile equipment which can work equally fine on gold nuggets, for treasure hunting or for underwater gold prospecting. 

Requirement of Discrimination

Depending upon the area where you will be conducting the gold detection process, if other metallic objects are frequently found as trash underneath the soil or recently a construction took place, then it would be better to go for a discrimination based gold detector. But if you are sure none of the problems would persist and the area is remote where the public access is not that frequent, then a detector without discrimination will also work and would be budget friendly. 

How is the Soil

The condition of soil whether it is highly mineralized having many metallic compounds embedded in the soil particles will also make it very difficult to a budget-friendly gold detector work on such soil without creating excessively annoying noise. But in that case, using a detector with the ground balance option available would make it easier to work by canceling out the magnetic field of the highly mineralized soil. 

Difference between Gold and Metal Detectors

 

AspectsGOLD DETECTORSMETAL DETECTORS
PurposeGold detectors have a sole purpose of detecting gold objects buried underground, distinguishing them from the other metallic compounds or completely ignoring them, because they are not precious. Metal detectors have the purpose of detecting the presence of metallic objects buried in a medium whether it is ground, water or otherwise to ensure it can be extracted or taken out of the system successfully.
Frequency RangeGold detectors are specifically designed to work with higher frequencies so that they will only respond to dense and precious metals with precision, and not ignore very close to surface gold nuggets. Metal detectors are very versatile and depending upon the usage requirement and size, they can work on several frequencies and the users have the flexibility to choose a suitable one.
UsesGold detectors are very specific type of metal detection instruments which are used for the purpose of finding treasures in form of gold coins, gold nuggets or relics statues and antiques below ground, underwater or for other multiple purposes. Metal detectors are used for all purposes where the metal is required to be separated from non metal items for example for security purposes in walk through gates, in the construction industry, in the retail sector, for physical research, in production of sensitive equipment etc.
DepthBecause of the nature of gold detectors working on a higher frequency, it is very difficult for them to work on very great depths in the ground and mostly work very close to the surface of Earth starting from one inch to a few meters.Because of the versatile nature of metal detectors, they are designed to focus on all or some of the specific class of metal objects, so they can have varying depth options from very less to very high as the frequency of them varies. 
DiscriminationIn gold detectors, the feature of discrimination is very important because only one metal is the center of attention which is Gold, so it must be separated from other metals during the detection process to avoid wastage of any time. Metal detectors can be equipped with discrimination or not depending upon how the buyer intends to use it. If they want to use it for the purpose of identifying metals from nonmetals then discrimination is not necessary. But if the user requires to classify the detected metal as a certain type e.g. iron copper, aluminum or gold, then discrimination in metal detection becomes helpful.
Coil SizeCoil size has a variety of options to choose from depending upon the user’s preference, as smaller coil size will be more helpful in detecting gold nuggets, but bigger coils will be more helpful to look for bigger gold items. Coil technology is pretty much the same in both, and size has a variety of options to choose from as well. It also depends on the user’s preference, as smaller coil size will be more helpful in detecting smaller items like in security, but bigger coils will be more helpful to look for metallic items for example in construction or research. 
Major DifferenceGold detectors are a type of metal detectors where the emphasis of the detection technology is to classify whether the metal is gold or other nonprecious metals, to target and mine gold from below the surface of ground or water. Metal Detectors are a major type of detection instrument which uses a specified set of technologies to classify different types of metals or metals in general in a specific location underground or underwater which is not visible otherwise. 

 

It can be safely concluded that every gold detector is a metal detector but every metal detector is not a gold detector.

What Are Gold Detectors?

Introduction

The Earth’s surface and core both are blessed with numerous resources which human beings exploit to keep the system running. These resources include precious and semi-precious metals hidden in many different forms below the Earth’s crust. One of the many challenges for people is to locate these metals and do the efforts required to dig in and extract them. Due to the technological advancements, it is now possible to determine if metal lies or not underneath the surface, without even starting to dig in. The modern equipment dramatically decreases the cost by showing probabilities of metal existence under the surface and saves much time. The equipment designed to detect specifically the gold-based metal and metallic alloys under earth’s crust is known as Gold Detectors

Categories of Underground Gold

The Gold which is naturally existing below Earth’s crust could be classified into two major types:

Gold Nuggets

The accumulated pieces or chunks of gold metal varying in sizes starting from the size of ballpoint pen’s tip to various ounces formed under natural circumstances by Earth core’s temperature and pressure.

Fine Gold

The gold particles in powdered or dust form mixed with other non-valuable particles from soil, which are not detected by any radiation or contact with the gold detectors. Their size is so small they are unable to affect the detection mechanism of even the powerful metal detectors.  

Basic Types of Detectors

Based on the types of outputs they provide, Gold detectors could be classified into four basic types which are:

  • Analog Gold Detectors

Detectors having an analog output where a needle deflects between two points when in contact with the threshold size of a metallic object showing relatively inaccurate reading but still signifies the presence of the object in question. These types of detectors are mostly obsolete but can be found in very beginner level equipment where precision is not the goal. 

  • Digital Gold Detectors

A rather advanced form of output where the model and build of detector assigns a number to the precious metal and non-precious metallic compounds where the readings close to the largest possible number indicate the purest metals underneath the surface whereas the numbers in lower possible ranges mean irrelevant metallic compounds.

  • Sound Based Gold Detectors

The type of detectors which make a beeping sound when metal is detected within its range and no other relevant information is provided whether the metal is in which category or its distance from the surface etc. However, the sound is louder in case of proximity and fades when the distance increases, which is vague but still effective in some situations. This technology can be seen in handheld security detectors as well as walk through gates.

  • 3D Graphics Based Gold Detectors

These gold detectors present the information in the form of colorful graphical representations where each of the colors means a specific metal or metallic compound in terms of the object’s purity. 

Huge Gold Nugget Found!

Recently, an Australian treasure hunter found a ginormous gold nugget weighing 49 ounces and grossing up to $49,000 in value! Yes, treasure hunting is a thing and gold metal detectors facilitate hunting them out from deep down the Earth. 

How Gold Detectors Work

Basically, gold detectors receive direct current from the battery, convert it into alternating current, which creates a magnetic field. This magnetic field emits electronic waves (eddy current) into the ground which when absorbed by a metallic object, create its own magnetic field. This new magnetic field distorts the earlier magnetic field and sends current to the receiving coil, which shows the output of positive metal detection.

 

Frequency of Gold Detectors

Frequency means the number of electronic waves a detector throws into the ground. Each frequency range is sensitive to a different type of compound and depending on the model and brand, these frequencies can vary. However a general rule is, that higher frequency results in decreased depth, but it becomes more sensitive and detects when smaller objects. 

Elements of Gold Detectors

  1. Coil

The circular base of the metal detector having the arrangement of wires in it in which the current flows and generates a magnetic field is called coil.

  1. Shaft

The long structure giving support to the coil and including a grip to hold the detector which makes it easier to carry and move the equipment around easily. 

  1. Control Unit

The device attached to the coil which receives input from the operator and gives output about the object is the control unit. 

Technologies in Coil

  1. DD Coil

An advanced form of the coil where the wiring within the apparatus is divided into two semicircles making a D and inverted D connected. It helps differentiate the ferrous and non-ferrous compounds within the ground which makes it easier to distinguish between gold and trash.

  1. Mono Coil

A simpler coil having wires arranged in its circumference where the circle is tightly wound covering more depth than DD coil but has the disadvantage that it does not discriminate between ferrous and non-ferrous compounds.
