Our range of Garrett metal detectors works in tandem with many of our other tools, including: 

  • Sluice — Useful because the dense ores will sink to the bottom of the sluice while the current will carry away the lighter materials. This leaves behind a pile of concentrated gold at the end of the sluice.
  • Recovery tools — These are essential to the prospecting process. Using a metal detector is crucial, but you need a tool to recover the goods at the end of a successful day. That’s where our range comes in. 
  • Pin pointers — They help you determine the exact location of a target. This is especially helpful when you're trying to determine the size and shape of a target and its depth. These are small and lightweight, making them easy to carry around with you. They're also relatively inexpensive, so they're a good option for those on a budget.
  • Gold pans — This tool will help sift through soil to get to what you want as a prospector. It’s the perfect complementary tool to a metal detector, giving you everything you need to get started once you also have prospecting headphones. 
  • Headphones — Metal detectors need prospecting headphones for complete functionality. Our Garret line is perfect for seasoned and aspiring prospectors alike, whether you’re in a loud environment, can’t hear low noises, or just want something comfortable to wear.

The detector’s search coil receives the retransmitted field and alerts the user by producing a target response, this may be a vibration or sound combination. Some ground detectors are capable of discriminating between different object types, treasure which is an acceptable target or other objects which are not sought after such as nails, screws and bottle tops, and can be set to ignore unwanted targets.
