treasure Found from Gold Detectors

Guide: Treasure Found from Gold Detectors

Gold detectors from around the world engaged in powerful and rather successful treasure hunting experiences. And news channels are interested to cover the rarest and most interesting stories about such discoveries making it attractive for beginners to seek a deeper interest in this field. Here are some popular and recent examples published as news stories of treasure found from Gold detectors having so much emotional or economic value.


A Treasure Hunter found a gold grad ring from 1965

A man who is a chiropractor professionally and a treasure hunter as a hobbyist, found a graduation ring from 1965 in Killarney Lake, Fredericton. The ring had the year engraved on its side and the logo of the high school at the front, a school which was non existent at the time they found the ring. It was 10 karats gold ring of size 7, and the treasure hunter was determined o find the owner. He found the list of 10 female graduates and shortlisted to 4, then reached them out via social networking site. He found the owner of the ring and sent her via mail. Previously, he also found a wallet with 2 Canadian dollars and a student card, whose owner was also satisfactorily found. The treasure hunter finds peace in returning long lost items to their rightful owners.


Metal Detector Finds the Wedding Ring Lost in the 1970s

A resident of Tenessee Mr. Wesley WHite during an occasional visit to his mother in his senior care facility overheard that one of her fellows lost her wedding ring in her garden 50 years ago and could not find. Her son said she always missed her ring and how she was unable to find it. Mr. White decided he would fetch his gold detector and have a look around the location. He found the ring buried 5 inches under the ground in about 90 minutes and gave it back to her after 50 years. She happily expressed how the ring would be a family heirloom now and thanked Mr. WHie, a retired person and treasure hunting enthusiast for his tremendous efforts. 


Man Finds ‘Monster’ $69,000 Gold Nugget in Australia With Metal Detectors

A local treasure hunting hobbyist in Western Australia found a huge gold nugget of about 49 ounces or 1.4 kilograms about 18 inches below the ground. A local shop posted the image of the gold nugget in comparison to a regular-sized coin on their Facebook page. They were then contacted by the BBC news for an elaborate report. The particular town is famous for the gold deposits and many of the people are earning through gold prospecting as their primary mode of income. Others indulge in it as a hobby but also earn sufficiently. 



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. 

What Display of Gold Detectors Tell

When it comes to mechanical equipment collecting some kind of input from the environment, the method of their display of output also becomes very important. The quality, the material as well as the accuracy of output generated by metal detectors can predict their value to the users because sufficient information is provided in an understandable format becomes the key of the effectiveness of the equipment in question. Following are the available methods of display of gold detectors which can be found from beginner to professional level equipment and what exactly they can tell. 

Analog Gold Detectors

The most backward kind of option in some of the lighter variants and older models of gold detectors available include an analog display. It shares the least amount of information regarding the detection and is the least effective among all types. Basically, a needle is present in the middle of the lowest end of the scale. The scale may have divisions in numeric form or basic high low, where low determines the signals from far away or smaller objects whereas high or larger number characterizes strong signal from a relatively closer location or larger object. The needle deflects according to the magnetic field received by the recipient coil, if strong then towards the stronger pole and if less then towards the weakest pole of the circular or semi-circular scale.

Digital Gold Detectors

These are relatively modern display system having an LED (Light Emitting Diode) display where the system assigns numbers to certain metallic components to make sure it can clearly distinguish between ferrous and non-ferrous compounds. The numbers assigned to each group can be different and is usually in ranges as well where a certain range would determine the purest form of gold, whereas on the opposite end, the range would determine the pure iron or ferrous alloys. These digital displays are more practical as compared to analog and are seen very frequently in intermediate, advanced and deep seeking gold detectors. 

3D Graphical Gold Detectors

The most advanced form of display in gold detectors is when the display comprised of an LED backlit technology and the screen is able to show colorful graphs and can summarize the shape and size of the prospective object found or detected underground just by scanning it from the top. This output method used a different color to classify different type of metal and once again the colors can vary from model to model.
