Metal Detectors NZ
Everybody loves buried treasure, even if pirates aren't your thing and you've never read Treasure Island. Metal detectors are essential to find metallic objects hidden from view. They can provide hours of fun for the kids or even profit for the serious hunter – although the chances of uncovering a Roman hoard or a Viking trove with metal are slim detectors in NZ.
Which Metal Detector is Right For Me?
The prices of metal detectors in NZ range from less than a hundred dollars to over ten thousand dollars, so it’s important to choose the correct metal detector for its intended purpose. The price essentially indicates the metal detector's sensitivity and, consequently, the size and depth of metals it can find.
- A metal detector for the kids is a great way to teach them about science and create a fun-filled, one-on-one event or party game. Metal detecting also teaches skills such as patience and following a systematic approach.
- If you plan on detecting at the beach, a waterproof coil is essential for detecting rings and other jewellery in the shallow surf. It can then also be used for prospecting in streams and ponds.
- Any good metal detector is suitable for gold because gold conducts electricity and will trigger the detector promptly. The guiding principle is that its frequency should be tuneable (to 14KHz for gold) with great sensitivity.
Nature Discoveries has many different metal detectors available, ranging from an easy-to-use kid’s metal detector to sophisticated machines capable of differentiation and data gathering, all perfect for looking for elusive treasures in the ground. We also encourage you to discuss any specific requirements with our staff before ordering to recommend the ideal model.
