Metal Detector Treasure Finds, Pictures and Stories
Excalibur II Pays For Itself!
Just a quick update on the new Excalibur II which I purchased on 3 April 2009. In short, the upgrade has been paid for in 3 weeks from the date I received the detector.
I have found 12 gold rings with the Excalibur II. The total weight found is 41 grams of 9kt and 20 grams of 18kt. With the current scrap gold price at ZAR 95 per gram of 9kt, that comes to ZAR 7,695. The upgrade from the Excalibur to the Excalibur II cost ZAR 5,700 so already I have made a profit of ZAR 2,000 just on the gold found!!
Three of the rings found were in wet sand, one in the surf and the other eight while I was diving on the South Coast. I have included a photo of the eight rings found while diving.
