Help-seeking Learning For Newcomers From China

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I am a treasure hunter from the Loess Plateau in northern China. I am very happy to come here to meet you. With my current simple experience, I cannot determine the use of a machine suitable for our local soil. I would like to ask all the experts to consult.  The pure loess plateau here is less mineralized, the soil layer is pure, and there are very few rocks. I am currently optimistic about the machines, Whites Spectra v3i, AKA SiGNUM MFD, mostly Xp35 and Minelab. I want to buy a deep  A good machine is mainly looking for silver coins and copper coins. I hope you can give excellent suggestions. In addition, I want to know if the depth of the Whites TDI SL pulse machine can exceed V3I and Aka. Please give excellent suggestions from friends who have used it.  I will be grateful for this, thank you all!

The Minelab Equinox 800 is a really great unit, and they are still in business. Whites has closed down but there are still some great units out there. The only problem with a Whites is going to be service if it breaks.

Good luck and good hunting.

Welcome, Zhangxiaotong!  That is interesting looking country.  Are those caves (natural or human excavated) or mines?  I hope whatever they are that they are safe, if you're going to detect inside them.

I can't really give you site specific advice.  The White's TDI/SL won't discriminate between different metals as well as the others so you will likely spend a lot of time digging trash if using it.  Typically PI's are used in highly mineralized ground where the IB/VLF detectors (others you mention) don't work well.  Thus the decision between PI and IB/VLF depends upon how mineralized (ferrous content) the ground is.

Thank you very much for your suggestion. The dwellings (cave dwellings) you mentioned are used for thousands of years in the Loess Plateau, and some people use them now. The pictures you see are probably ancient villages one or two hundred years ago. Those ancient cave dwellings are not  It's safe. It can only be detected in the yard. A deep detector is needed, because the ground has collapsed loess!  The soil layer is relatively thick, and there are ancient historical wars here. The history is one or two thousand years old, and there are many similar relics!

Any current well known model will do the job. The Equinox 800 and XP Deus are a couple very popular detectors that will handle most any task you desire. Beware excessive claims... anything advertised as working more than a half meter should be suspect, anything over two meters all buy impossible.

Welcome to the forums.

If the soil is mild any machine will do. I have a Makro Multi Kruzer that does very well with silver in particular even at 19khz. Nox 800 is also a great machine as many here use them. There are more coil options for the Nokta machines which may prove useful depending the area your searching.

Welcome Zhang,

    Great looking area there, you have to hunt! The detector suggestions are solid! But it would help to know what your price range is!

  I wish you much luck!!👍👍

Thank you very much for your professional reply and valuable information in the link, which has played a key role in my understanding of the detector. I think your answer is rigorous, because VLF and PI have technical limits, and have reached the depth limit in the 1990s. Later, only horizontal technologies such as double impedance and metal resolution have been developed. Do you have any comments on the characteristics of Bulgarian deep tech ground pioneer 4500 and golden mask deep Hunter Pro 5? Is the relationship between them and GPZ 7000 just suitable for searching for metal objects with different sizes?

      Sometimes while out detecting I wonder about the likelihood of digging into utility lines.  The obvious one is sprinkler heads or lines, but those I've encountered seem pretty sturdy, although if plastic there could be a problem.
      In my current park site I uncovered a Romex electrical line (not in a protective conduit) -- sample photo below.  It was only about 6 inches deep and my detector was picking up the copper wires inside.  Fortunately it turned out to be inactive although I don't think I broke through the insulation.  I just covered it back up and made a mental note since its signal could be picked up elsewhere along the line.

      Another, possibly bigger issue is what to say if someone approaches and asks (or tells...) you of their concern, whether that is for my safety or just of the utility line itself.  Of course they are supposed to be much deeper than I dig, but that assumes whoever buried it was knowledgeable and responsible.  For example, in front of my house along the public sidewalk there is a TV cable (merely electrically insulated) which has been pushed to the surface by a tree root.  I'm sure it wasn't buried more than a few inches originally.  Every time I mow I wonder if I'm going to cut it.
      I'd like to read about your experiences with this issue.

      I found this strange copper ring near a sand play pit in a park. The writing looks medieval. It is one word repeated inside and out of the ring and is gibberish to me. I wonder if it has a mystical meaning. The ring extention has been done very crudely and certainly not by a jeweller. Can anybody help with suggestions? Thanks!

      Been relic hunting and metal detecting for quite a few years...getting back into it after a hiatus for a few years (sometimes life gets in the way). What I like the most about the hobby is the historical research that goes into finding sites. Besides metal detecting, I also enjoy hunting for, and collecting, Native American artifacts as well as old bottles and marbles. Happy hunting!

      Hi all,
      I am Eric, I am 42 years old. I have been practicing metal detection for 25 years and gold panning for 18 years.
      I have 2 children who love to search for coins and gold with me.
      I live not far from Gaillac, a region known for its wine.
      I have an equinox 800 and one sluice box caledonan to look for gold in the river.

      Hey All,  Iv been trying to locate a Refiner here in the USA that can process a small batch of placer gold (2oz) and fabricate some 18/22k jewelry stock.     I am an amateur jeweler and have tried many times to smelt my hard earned gold into some usable material and have not had any luck thus far.     So, I know I can send it off to a refiner and get generic stock back but the point is to use my own gold for some special pieces.      I know someone else out there has gone down this road before, and i would so appreciate a lead on  a reputable refiner/fabricator.    
       
      cheers!

      I am new here on this forum. Name here is Bill, located in north county of S.D. I recently upgraded my equipment from a AT MAX to a Nox800...what a difference! Kinda dumb not spending the extra $ and getting it in the first place...but oh well. If you are out here nearby let's hook up and refill the change coffers! Well....you find the change and I will keep the gold!
