Nokta FORS GOLD Standard Package Metal Detector

With its Extreme Sensitivity, it Will Find Nuggets that other Detectors Miss at Unmatched Depths!


For the Toughest Terrains

As all experienced gold prospectors know, gold fields in the world have tough ground conditions for detectors. These fields, most of the time, contain high amounts of iron minerals and hot rocks which cause false signals and negatively affect the performance of metal detectors. FORS Gold, thanks to its advanced settings designed to eliminate these minerals, works flawlessly even on the toughest terrains.

3 Search Modes

General Search
Sometimes referred to as the "All Metal" mode, this is the deepest mode of the device. Different than the other modes, this mode has a constant threshold sound in the background. You can search deeper by listening to the variations in this sound.

Discrimination (DI3)
This is the 3-tone discrimination mode. This mode is ideal to use in fields with different types of metals enabling you to search faster with audio discrimination.

Boost (BST)
It is the 2-tone discrimination mode. Developed for use in gold fields, this mode is deeper than DI3. It provides more depth for nugget searching and minimizes the effects of hot rocks.

Ground Tracking
Nokta FORS GOLD Tracking Along with automatic and manual ground balancing, FORS Gold also offers ground tracking which tracks the changes in ground and automatically adjusts the ground balance to suit. The visible or invisible changes in ground affects the detection depth as well as the discrimination ability of the device so you can improve the performance of the device by activating this feature on suitable ground.

Digital Target ID and ID Masking
Nokta FORS GOLD Target ID When FORS Gold detects a target, it displays the target ID on the screen and gives you an idea about what the target may be. ID Masking, on the other hand, enables you to search by ignoring unwanted targets. It provides ease of use by rejecting hot rocks and metals such as iron and foil.

Dual LCD Display & Graphical User Interface
Nokta FORS GOLD LCD Display FORS Gold has 2 LCD displays - one on the system box and one on the handle. Dual LCD display and graphical user interface let you easily adjust the settings and see all the information you need on the screens. Once you adjust your settings on the LCD panel located on the system box, you can follow most of the information on the display in the front. This way you don't need to go back and check the LCD panel constantly. This provides great comfort during searching.

Electronic Pinpointing and Depth Indicator
Nokta FORS GOLD Depth With FORS Gold, you can easily pinpoint a target with just the push of a button. As the target is approached in the pinpoint mode, the signal tone will get stronger and change in pitch and at the same time, the depth reading will appear on both screens. Pinpoint feature will save you digging time and enable you to reach your target faster.

Vibration Mode
Nokta FORS GOLD Vibration Mode With FORS Gold, you can easily pinpoint a target with just the push of a button. As the target is approached in the pinpoint mode, the signal tone will get stronger and change in pitch and at the same time, the depth reading will appear on both screens.

Very Capable Machine

Review by Casey D on June 11, 2015

Purchased the Nokta Fors Gold based on other good reviews on forums. I wondered if the gold version could still do well in parks, etc as a coin/jewelry hunter AND still do really well in the gold fields. I just got this a few days ago so I haven't hit the goldfields yet, but it does GREAT in parks. There are 3 general search modes - Boost (Gold fields), General (Gold Fields or....), and DI3 / Discrimination. Using DI3, I hit the local park and found it VERY capable as coin shooter. I was having a lot of fun with this machine, much more so than my erratic ATX and even my Elite 2200. The ground balance (and auto ground balance) work great, the built in pin pointer IS SPOT ON and gives depth (very surprised at how accurate the pin pointer is). There is a built in light (which came in handy because it got late) and worked fine. The discrimination feature works pretty good, just enough to know when to dig. I hit about 10 coins in about 20 minutes and relatively few pieces of trash.

What really got me excited was hitting hard on tiny tiny pieces of foil at 4 inches deep. My other detectors generally missed these, and if it can hit those, it will hit Gold. So far, very excited about my new machine, build quality, functionality, and overall "fun factor". Time will tell in the gold fields, but a few youtube videos show it very capable.

fors gold review

Review by California G on August 20, 2014

I aquired a Nokta fors gold. when I received it I was very impressed with the quality of the build. they did not cut any corners building this unit. it is very easy to use with a user friendly menu. I took the fors gold to one of my favorite goldfields. the area is very mineralized. I previously detected the area for months with a gold bug pro and found gold. This goldfield has been cleaned out the best that I could do with gold bug pro. when I used the Fors gold there, it came alive with many deeper targets than before. every target found with fors gold I then checked with gold bug pro with 10" coil, and it could not detect these signals. some where deeper gold. Fors gold ran very smooth in this area . overall I was very very impressed. I have the Fors gold pro package. it comes with 3 coils and other accessories, in a very well built suitcase that stores everything. all the coils and accessories worked very well also. glad I made the choice to get this detector.
