When you buy your metal detector, many people ask will it find Gold ?
Yes it will find valuable Gold coins and treasures, but you must also take into
consideration, it is designed to find metal.
Do you beat yourself up if you dig Iron, like so many metal detector users out
there, we all do it, just say oh well that's just the way it is.
If you have a professional metal detector like the XP ORX, you can easily tell
the difference between a rusty nail and a Gold Coin, however this is not an
exact science and on the odd occasion you will dig some unwanted iron and ask,
why did the detector fool me.
There are lots of reasons a detector sees iron targets as good targets, if you
are digging nails, them something is wrong with your machine or the way you have
If you are digging odd shaped iron, or round iron, then it is understandable as
these particular targets catch most machines out.
With a little patience and skill you can soon become confident with your metal
detector, but donít be complacent or over confident as many iron items will be
Why is the XP ORX a good choice of metal detector
The price is very attractive, plus it has a wide range of features, the biggest
bonus is the fact that you don't need to be a detecting expert to use this
machine, it finds Silver and Gold straight out of the bow with no adjustments.
It is common knowledge amongst professional detectorists that so many
important coin hoards have been found by people new to the metal detecting
hobby, and this is largely down to the fact that they investigate more
suspicious targets than the seasoned treasure hunter, because they are perhaps a
little over confident.
Cheap metal detectors will not reject iron as well as good detectors, the form
of adjustable target rejection is called discrimination. While using the XP ORX
I found most Iron was discriminated at level 7.
