Meteorite hunting is a thrilling hobby, with falls being reported all the time. Here’s a question we often get: “Which metal detector best cancels out “hot rocks” without discriminating metallic iron?” A great question… since meteorites contain iron-nickel metal!  Seasoned meteorite hunters point to the XP DEUS as one of the best detectors for the task, because it is sensitive to both nickel and iron. Famed meteorite hunter Twink Monrad has located most of her meteorites using the XP DEUS’s exclusive “Goldfield setting.” Read her story Meteorite Hunting with my XP DEUS Detector.

“How to Use Metal Detectors to Find Meteorites

XP DEUS: the “Do it All” Wireless Detector: Proven in the Gold Fields

Finding gold in nature is comparable to finding a needle in a haystack. A metal detector will make both of these tasks easier! This is because “float” gold is very small, lodging in hollow places or behind boulders and other barriers to its downhill movement. Float is part of the ore that somehow breaks off from the mother lode and gets carried away by gravity, wind, water, earth movement or other acts of nature. It often gets covered by a surplus of rock and gravel that has washed on top of the gold ore. Prospectors who search old placer mining areas can use a metal detector to find any gold that was bypassed. In many cases, the use of a deep-seeking high-quality metal detector is the only way long-overlooked ore deposits and left behind gold can be found. In just minutes or hours, a gold detector can locate the same precious metal that took months and years to find with shovels and pans.

A Good Quality Instrument is an Investment

In the field with the XP DEUS metal detector

Look to the XP DEUS metal detector since “the quality of the metal detector you take into the gold fields will have a significant impact on whether you find gold or not.”

Without a doubt, the quality of the metal detector you take into the gold fields will have a significant impact on whether you find gold or not. There are sophisticated detectors solely designed to find gold. But not so fast! Before you purchase a gold-seeking metal detector, there’s an important question you should ask yourself, “Will I be using this detector to hunt only for gold?” Treasure is everywhere—and while gold may be the crown jewel, you can also uncover valuable old coins, priceless military relics, antiques, meteorites, buried treasure caches and so much more! There are truly universal metal detectors, such as the XP DEUS, that are spectacular instruments capable of finding just about everything. Many veteran detectorists urge newbies to investigate the benefits of purchasing a multi-purpose unit—so as to get the most their money can buy.

XP DEUS – Lightweight, Powerful and Deep Seeking

The XP DEUS Metal Detector is the world’s first wireless metal detector. It is equipped with a wireless search coil, wireless remote control digital display and wireless audio headphones. All three components communicate through a digital wireless radio signal; this eliminates the need for wires that can get tangled and compromised. What’s really unique is you control all of the detector functions with the headphones alone: ground balance, frequency, discrimination, sensitivity and custom programs. Similarly, the search coil operates independently. The XP search coil processes the target signal directly via a miniature digital circuit. This is state-of-the-art technology exclusive to XP DEUS. This detector is known for detecting gold nuggets at extreme depths and seeing gold mixed close to and among iron. It is also an expert at locating coins, relics and meteorites. Wet salt-water beach hunting is a breeze with the XP DEUS. Field tests give it the highest possible ratings. One customer found a 5.6 gram nugget within 10 minutes. This is the best example of a “do it all” detector available today!
