Nokta Makro Mini Hoard is the first totally waterproof metal detector for children. It will be a good device for children aged 4 to 14. From this article, you will find about its operation frequency, search coil, if it will work for beach hunting, can it detect bottle caps, and what makes this metal detector different from its elder brother – Nokta Makro Midi Hoard.
Metal detectors, like any other equipment, require a maximum of attention and proper care. If you don’t pay enough attention to these, your device may fail you at any moment.
When I took up metal detecting, I didn’t understand much, especially when I heard such words as discrimination, ground balance, mineralization, etc. I didn’t adjust the ground balance. I just turned the metal detector in and hurried to start treasure hunting.
Moreover, even sometime later, I was still using automatic manufacturer’s settings, and these were quite enough for me. Only when I became a more experienced digger, I started to see how important is proper setting and adjusting of the ground balance. This is the experience I’d like to share with you here.
Not all diggers know that Minelab belongs to the Codan Limited group of companies, which publish a financial report and a presentation for investors every year. The financial year of 2021 has already begun in Codan, and it will end in July 2021, so the company has published its plans. Among them, you can find a plan to release a new metal detector for gold prospecting – Minelab GPX 6000.
The article will tell you which metal detector is better for beach hunting and what you should take into account while selecting the device as well as why brackish water is a problem for beach hunting, what black sand is, what is wrong with gold chains and what VLF stands for.
