Why Do I Need a Different Search Coil for Gold?

If you are someone who lives in an area that is known to have gold or if you are a gold prospector, you should definitely consider a gold detector search coil. While all search coils may seem the same, this is not true, as some are better designed for particular uses. Gold search coils are highly-sensitive to small objects and can pick up the smallest gold nuggets and gold flakes. If you have a machine that has a higher frequency, it is great for gold, so there is no reason that you should not consider investing in a gold metal detector coil. With that being said, there are several factors to keep in mind when picking out a search coil.

Which Features Do I Need?

There are some important factors to keep in mind when it comes to picking out the right gold search coil for you. One of the most important is the coil shape. Concentric, mono, and DD are three most popular for search coils designed for gold, and it is important to figure out which of these you like the most. DD search coils and Mono search coils are some of the most popular among gold prospectors, as you can cover a lot of ground and get a little more depth out of them. Another important factor in your decision should be the coil size. If you are someone who prospects in places where there are not a bunch of metal targets, consider a large coil. If you are someone who hunts in trashy, target-ridden places, consider a smaller coil so you can pick out the good from the bad. One final important factor is whether or not you want a waterproof coil. Many coils are only weatherproof and won’t be able to withstand being put clear underwater for long periods of time. At the end of the day, these factors should guide your purchase.
