Metal Detecting Equipment and Training

I just added the Garrett AT Gold to the equipment list. I was looking for a machine that would perform really well on small gold items like diamond earrings and very small diamond pendants. The Minelab CTX 3030 manages well, but the prospecting (AT GOLD) hits these small items really well.

I purchased two small gold items from a local jewelry store for field testing and training purposes. The AT GOLD works amazingly well and should increase my recovery rate for these types of items.












Test Items























The New Garrett AT Gold
















First test run with the AT Gold at a nearby park






















The AT Gold picked out this small earring on its first test run along with some of the smallest specs of aluminum and other debris I have ever recovered.

My first impressions, the machine is awesome,  and it has already proven itself capable of finding micro specs of Au, Ag, and Pt.

Au: Gold

Ag: Silver

Pt: Platinum

    Great to know John as small diamond stud earrings are the hardest thing to find with most detectors!!!
    Thanks for the tip.
    Best, Chris

  2. Best of luck, John. I have read many favorable articles about this unit in comparisons with other ‘gold’ machines.

    Thanks John. I just got the AT Pro, and it works real well, but to be able to find the small stuff, that would be a good tool to have; next my list.
