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
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!
Those who take up the hobby of metal detecting and immediately love it, develop a passion for detecting like nothing else. They would rather hunt for treasure than do just about anything! Every hobbyist starts detecting for the same reason—to find valuable treasure. Whether it’s old relics, old coins, clad coins, lost jewelry or a treasure cache, every find is a conquest. There are hundreds of different metal detectors on the market today, and choosing the best one can be the most complicated thing about metal detecting. Many hobbyists want to find everything with their metal detector—coins, jewelry, caches, relics, beach treasures and gold nuggets. Typically, you would need two or three detectors to accomplish this. Unless, of course, you learned about an expert unit that has advanced all metal detection technology—the XP DEUS.
Real Finds. Real Performance.
Detectorists who use the Deus metal detector cannot say enough about the design. One reviewer raves, “Most amazing detector ever made. Lightweight and easy to use!”
If you want a true all-around metal detector, and there are few on the market that will do all aspects, many detectorists will point you to the XP DEUS wireless metal detector. You can find everything with the XP DEUS. Gold? Yes. Meteorites? Yes. Wet salt-water beach hunting? Yes. Antique jewelry, relics and coins? Of course! Wires that can get tangled? No. The XP DEUS comes with a wireless search coil, wireless remote control digital display and wireless audio headphones. It is truly a genius design because all three devices communicate with each other via a digital wireless radio signal developed specifically for metal detecting. You can control everything from the XP DEUS remote LCD display. Simply toggle through the menus to adjust the controls: audio response, iron level, multi tone, notch, discrimination and ground balance. Detectorists who use this unit cannot say enough about the design in XP DEUS product reviews. One reviewer raves, “Most amazing detector ever made. Lightweight and easy to use!” There are so many incredible features on this patented model—it’s really too many to list. See complete list of DEUS product details. The DEUS Starter Bundle includes the WS4 LCD Backphone Headphone & 9″ search Coil with Telescopic Pole. Holiday Sale Price $1199.
For those looking to get started in antique hunting, having the right tools will help you find relics buried in the ground.
Antiquing is a beloved pastime for many. It reminds us of the “good ol days.” Holding a piece of history in your hands is a great way to transport yourself to another time and space. For some, a tangible item might conjure up great childhood memories. In fact, it may even present the opportunity to share these memories with your loved ones. Not only that, collecting is fun! It brings people from many different places and experiences together in an environment where they can share their passions and learn from each other.
For many, antique hunting is something that’s done in a mall, at a show, online, at an antique shop, etc. But, did you know that in addition to these common places, antique items can also be found outdoors and even underground? Believe it or not, there are actually many items including antique toys, kitchen items, jewelry antiques, and more that can still be found underground and in other locations like old home sites and former garbage dumps. While treasure hunting like this isn’t nearly as easy as heading to the antique shop to search for treasures, it is incredibly rewarding and really will take your antiquing experience to a whole new level.
Having the right metal detector will make it easier for you to find hidden antiques and relics.
Antiquing this way is made possible by time spent in libraries, town offices, and other centers of local history speaking with others and searching for information on places that would make good dig sites, as well as the use of relic hunting metal detectors. These types of metal detectors can find metal collectibles and antiques of all kinds. But, not only that, they’ll also lead you to treasure digging spots where you’ll come across non metallic types of antiques, such as thimbles and marbles, in addition to the metal ones the detector will alert you to.
Choosing the best machine for metal detecting relics and antiques is important. However, the “right one” will be different for each person. As a result, the best advice is to do your research. Some of the features that are important to consider when choosing a relic hunting metal detector include whether or not you’ll be near water, your height, weight, and level of physical fitness, technological preferences, and, of course, your budget. That said, a good entry level relic hunting metal detector would be the Bounty Hunter Platinum a mid level model would be either the Tesoro Tejon or Fisher F75 LTD and at the top of the line is the XP DEUS.
Whatever model you choose, antique hunting with a metal detector is very exciting. Just like the antique mall, you never know what you might find; you might leave with great treasures, or, you might walk home empty handed. But, unlike in the shops, when you are actually the first one to find and unearth a beautiful treasure, the feeling is like no other; and neither is the profit!
Enjoy antique hunting on a whole new level and head out on your own search. Not only will you have a fantastic time, but, you’ll be doing the antiquing community a favor by locating and sharing these rare finds that would otherwise remain deep underground.

Well, the 2011 FMDAC Convention is in the history books after wrapping up this last weekend in Myrtle Beach, SC. Held at a great resort right on the beach, it was a time when old friends got reacquainted and new friendships were made which is really one of the best parts of any organized hunt or convention. I hate to date myself but I can remember the first FMDAC conventions in Atlantic City, NJ in the mid-1980’s . . . some 25+ years ago!
The size and attendance has fluctuated over the years and while the 2011 convention was

not one of the largest, it was well attended and I had the opportunity to talk with hunters from the New England and New York areas, Ohio, Michigan, Kansas, and California as well as most of the states in the Southeast. Tom Dankowski gave one of the seminars and was the keynote speaker at the banquet held Saturday night. His talk included an informative presentation on the preservation of history that he has performed for the town of Fort Meade, Florida and it showed how hobbyists and archeologists can work together to save history.
The hunt was held on the beach and the weather, while a tad chilly first thing in the morning, warmed up to a picture-perfect temperature at hunt time . . . . clear blue skies and the gentle crash of the waves created the ideal hunt environment. A kid’s hunt was held between the main hunts on Sunday and all of the participants had a super time . . . . most had never seen a detector before yet you could see the bug taking hold as they walked off the field holding detectors hunters attending the convention had loaned them and walked over to get their prizes that had been generously donated by the FMDAC and attendees.
Getting new people into the hobby is what will keep the hobby growing and hunts where kids get a chance to find coins including Wheat cents, Buffalo nickels, foreign coins and a few pieces of silver along with prize tokens, Matchbox cars and more will ignite a spark that might just blaze into a fire that remains a passion for life . . . . I started at age 6 and have never looked back!
One of the “hot topics” as people walked around the displays and dealer setups was the
Author Andy Sabisch represents XP Metal Detectors and MetalDetector.com at the FMDAC treasure hunt and convention in Myrtle Beach, SC.
introduction of the XP DEUS Metal Detector . . . . it generated a great deal of interest from all types of hunters from coin and beach to die-hard relic hunters. As the DEUS starts to get out in the field across the U.S., its unique features will garner more attention and if it performs as well as it does in the soils of Europe and the United Kingdom, one will start to see their popularity and usage grow.
The FMDAC is still going strong and the 2012 Convention is already in the planning stages . . . . this time it will move West and be held in Mesa, Arizona on the last weekend of September. It should be a great event as the FMDAC is looking at holding it in conjunction with the GPAA show to increase the number of attendees and grow membership. If you were not in Myrtle Beach this last weekend, you missed a great get together . . . . I hope to see you at a hunt or show in the future.
