Coiltek Nox 10" Elliptical Coil Saves A Few. Is One Of The Finds Ivory?


Recommended Posts


Nice saves.. .So how was the depth for it's size compared to the 6", Gerry?  Were there any quirks (coil bump sensitivity, excessive falsing on small iron, etc.)

Also, what is the item about the size of a nickel and it has a star in the glass?

That hexagram or six-pointed star has been used by so many organizations/religions that it could be tough to tie it down.  However, since you are in Mormon Territory (right?) and they used it, that's my first guess.  Don't let Gary Drayton see it or he'll be digging there for Templar treasures.

I assume since you didn't show the back that it's not a button with metal loop.  Think it might have been afixed with an adhesive and subsequently gotten knocked loose?

What a fun winter day detecting! Thanks for sharing. Are those 5x10” coils now in stock? I can’t wait to get my hands on one. 

Not yet in stock, but I'll be getting some next week.  I've been a Minelab dealer for 20+ yrs and also using/selling CoilTek coils for just as long.  They promised to send me a test coil, but since it's still pretty much winter, I have not been able to chase any gold nuggets with it.  So the best opportunity now is try my luck at some local sites I know of for relics.

I have a list started for the coils and if you want on it, shoot me an email from www.gerrysdetectors.com

Looks like bone.

The video was very informative and I think you are correct, it's probably bone.  Not sure if a piece of carved ivory that has been dug up in dirt can still not show veining but at least I know what non dug bone looks like.  Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, Gerry. I’ll drop you a line. I have been using the 6” but definitely could use more coverage. The stock 11” picks up too much ground noise in many of my patches. I hope the 5x10 is the ticket.

I'm yearning to know that answer as well (depth), but I did not have a staff member there with me using his own EQ-800 and a 6" coil.  I was mainly hunting a very trashy site (old burn dump) and had my SENS turned down to 15 because depth was not my concern.  I wanted good target separation, which I did get.

I didn't get any falsing such as when a coil has a broken winding, but I was not prospecting and banging the coil like I d when Prospecting.  We still have snow in the hills around us, so the gold testing will have to wait.

Sorry I was not able to answer your questions and that will take time this summer when I am in the gold fields with staff and we are deliberately comparing and testing.

"La Vencedora" carved onto that bone or ivory roughly means "The Winner" in English.  Maybe it was originally given as a prize to somebody?  I look forward to future 10x5 coil reports. 😀

Come to think of it, "La Vencedora" could also be the brand name for that item.

      I am impressed with it. It will my main coil this summer lake hunting.
      I like the razors edge tone when detecting. It is fast as it goes over targets. Depth is very impressive in my mild ground.
      I hate to say but my Anfibio Multi is the backup detector to my Equinox 800. Even with the 5x10 coil.
      I look forward to seeing what Minelab has coming.

      Just wanted to update those still looking for the new NOX 15" round coil by Coiltek.
      I just received a shipment of coils and have them in stock ready to ship.
      My 1st hunt with the 15" round was quite silverish with an 8 silver day.
      Nothing extremely deep (Idaho soils) but most coins were in the 8 to 9" range.  I was able to lift the coil a couple inches off the ground and still get a repeatable signal.
      No it is not leaps of 6" inches on a coin size target, but I would think a buckle or cannon ball would be approx 6" deeper.
      Call Gerry's Detectors at 208-345-8898 to get one on its way to you.

      IMPORTANT UPDATE - Coiltek NOX COILS

      Since we launched the new NOX coils just 4 weeks ago on the 3rd of March 2021, we have received 1000’s of orders for the product, and these orders are continuing to grow each day.  We have never before experience such demand for a Coiltek product.

       We are naturally delighted to have such a positive response to the NOX product and we are grateful for your support. However, due to this unprecedented worldwide demand and the various impacts of COVID-19, deliveries are taking longer than usual.

      Be assured, our worldwide distributors and dealers are doing the best they can and we are keeping in close contact with them. They are being updated regularly on availability and stock quantities.
       
       We at Coiltek have a great production team and we are working around the clock to supply. Our commitment to quality and providing you with the best product possible is and will continue to be at the forefront. 

      Current delays can be up to 6-8 weeks. The best way to purchase a NOX coil is to contact your local Coiltek dealer and place an order.
      Again, thank you for your support and patience, we sincerely apologise for these delays.
      New Coil For Minelab Equinox from Coiltek

      Maybe something to think about. Bearing in mind I am probably going to get these new coils for the 23 and 7 myself, people should at least consider, a lot of people are saying something along the lines of "my detector is out of warranty anyway, so I`m not risking anything fitting these new coils", but, it is Minelabs policy to not repair any modified Minelab detector.    I daresay that if you were to send a out of warrenty 2300 or 7000 back to Minelab for repair and Minelab saw you were running a unsanctioned coil, they wont repair the detector.    You could end up with a 4K or 10K detector that all it`s good for is to fill it with concrete and use it as a anchor.
      Like I said, I am probably going to get the coils myself, but I will be doing it with the idea that if either detector fails I will probably have to throw it away, and that`s on me and no one else.
      I have no reason to suspect the coils are going to cause any damage and I wish Coiltek and davsgold nothing but success with these new coils.

      Where I preordered anticipated ship date is March 28.  Has anyone’s been shipped yet?, Does anyone have reliable information?   I’m only impatient when I’m waiting for something, lol

      It seems this coil would be nice for sticking between rocks  since it is more sensitive at the nose vs. the center of the 6'' coil.I think Simon did the  video and he thinks both have about the same sensitivity on that #9 shot.
