timing could not have been better!
This model is produced in the same chassis as their popular water hunting metal detector, the Garrett AT Pro. Don’t let the familiar design fool you! This new model in the AT series is a serious gold prospecting detector, packed with new features. The AT Gold is designed with ease of use in mind. This unit contains features that are sure to help even the novice treasure hunter strike gold! While complete details are shown on our Garrett AT Gold Metal Detector page on our website, here are the items that catch our eye.
An Adjustable Ground Balance Window
For the first time, users now have the capability to spread the ground balance setting. This allows you to effectively ground balance to a range of values. This is particularly helpful in reducing the effects of hot rocks and terra cotta.
A True Gold Prospecting Frequency
We were excited to see that Garrett chose an 18 kHz frequency for this new machine. This high frequency is perfectly suited to locate the tiniest gold nuggets. As an aside, this unit will also be ideal for locating gold jewelry, lead relics, bronze, copper, silver and brass targets.
Rugged All Terrain Design and Versatility
Like the AT Pro, the AT Gold is waterproof to 10 feet. This unit is ideal for prospecting in streams and river beds. Now you can bring your metal detector in to the toughest environments.
A New Gold Prospecting Search Coil
Garrett has done their homework and designed a small, sensitive new coil featuring the DD design. The 5”x8” PROformance search coil is the perfect complement to the new AT Gold. The design of this coil provides smooth operation in the mineralized ground conditions where gold is found.
The AT Gold is the first waterproof gold prospecting display with a full visual display. We are confident that this new model will send their competitors back to the drawing board. The AT Gold has a suggested list price of $799.95 and is available from MetalDetector.com at the discounted price of $679.96. The first shipments are expected to arrive in October, 2011.
