Detech Detecting Coils

Ive Just gotten a shipment of Detech coils from the distributer to evaluate.
Some of you may have seen these coils before, they’ve become popular with the VLF users.

Here is the 18”x12” Mono and the 8” Mono with a few gold nuggets found by Rege Podraza in the Mariposa district in central California’s Mother Load.
This area is well know for its gold in highly mineralized ground and EMI. A great place to test any detector and coils.



GPX, GP, AND SD SERIES DETECTORS and the WHITES TDI line of detectors

All Detech coils are made using the highest quality materials. The housings are made of UV protected material, their inside is covered with chopped-strand material for a better shock resistance. We use resins, which are “transparent” to the electromagnetic waves, and offer perfect shielding. The coils are water proof and operate in a wide temperature range. The searchcoils are all equipped with an excellent fitting cover, (skid plate) and have a two year full warranty.

All Detech coils and accessories are shipped direct to you from the manufacturer POSTAGE FREE. Delivery usually takes 8-10 days.

Please enquire on shipments to Central and South America as there may be an additional postage fee.


Gold prospecting with the XP DEUS

First some links to success stories,

Thats my normal reaction when I here about a “new” metal detector. Im a hands on type that needs to see it to believe it. So when my good friend Merton told me about this new French detector, I was more then a bit skeptical. That is until I started researching the stories that were being shared on social media.

This is truly a revolutionary detector in more then one way. First it's totally wireless, the coil has no cable connecting it to a control box. No headphone cable to tangle or break.
Second with the computer in the coil the signal is processed faster allowing for precision and speed.

In my research I came across a couple of YouTube videos that demonstrated the XP DEUS's recovery speed and target separation. There is simply not another detector on the market today can match its performance at picking out good targets amongst the iron rubbish. Here’s a link to a great video that demonstrates this.

What makes is important for me is that I hunt coins and gold nuggets in the mining camps of the Old West, the sites covered with rusty tin cans, nails and wire. Having a metal detector that can ferret out the good targets from amongst the trash is worth its weight in gold!

XP Deus!
A technological breakthrough!
The XP Deus marks a technological breakthrough and is real innovation in metal detectors.

It's patented architecture is based on three elements: a coil, a remote control and a set of audio headphones, which are unique in that they communicate with each other via a digital radio link.

Through the incorporation components developed for leading-edge technologies, they use it achieves power, speed and precision, all in a lightweight compact design.
The search coil contains the essential components for processing the signal, which no longer need to be conveyed via wire link. The signal is digitalized and analyze directly at the source by ultra miniature digital circuit, this greatly improves the quality of the signal acquisition. The circuit, which is integrated in the detection had, process the information and send it to both the headphones and the remote control in real-time via a digital wireless radio link.

Full 5 year warranty!
Four frequencies 4 to shift kHz, 8 kHz, 12 kHz, 18 kHz plus the ability to shift each frequency plus or minus to eliminate interference from nearby detectors.
