In Conclusion......

In what may be the last chapter of this online guide, let me share with you the climax of my Explorer odyssey. Mark B. (Mr."find what the others missed), one of my hunting buddies, went to England with our close friend Randy G. to detect the ancient isles for some of its history. They did very well with the techniques and strategies outlined in this guide.

Here is Mark's story.

"It was the last day of the hunt with about 45 mintues left in the day, 4:46pm local time when I checked my watch, and I had been grid searching the whole day an area about 35-40 yards wide , starting at the furthest point and working my way back to the pickup point. I had covered approximately 250 yards when I came to the spot.
I was digging everything that wasn't iron, (I did dig a few of those just to be sure I was not missing anything), I was using the Explorer2 with the WOT coil Sunray X-1 probe. When I got the signal it sound just like a shotgun shell brass casing which Chris said to dig, Chris said to dig everything actually but those particularly as they sound like gold, and I had dug several,.at this point, I looked at the digital display and it read 11-02 which is a good possibilty of being gold. It was about four inch deep I didn't use my digger I just stuck my probe in the soft soil pulled it out and then slowly scooped the soil out with my hand and there she was,a little disc smaller than a nickel and larger than a penny.
At first I did not know what I had, it was caked up with mud but after I wiped that off and saw the gold I started to get excited I was looking at the reverse side which is plain then I turned it over and wiped that side off and saw the Horse I let out a laugh then a bigger Yahoo! Looking around I couldn't see any of my fellow hunters then I saw Dom from Australia off in the distance and then Randy further off. I decided I 'd show Randy first since he and I flew over together from L.A. He couldn't believe it with just around fortyfive minutes left to hunt I found my first gold coin and not just any gold coin a North Thames Celtic from 40 B.C. and according to the experts there are only 6 of these in known exsistence, 2 of which are in the British museum. Quite a trip for me. I'm waiting on the export license now hopefully that will be granted and I can show you personally.

Almost all the information detailed in the blog is from myself, my friends who I detect with and info culled from various forums and websites. Thank you all and HAPPY HUNTING! Bing Trinidad p.s. write to me at I do appreciate the occasional "hi, the blog helped".

Battery Chargers

If your going to use rechargeable batteries, save you money by investing in a good charger. Here are a couple thatll do the job. You know what they say, the right tool for the right job. Both will charge, peak detect, refresh, cycle, MONITOR CAPACITY and are editor's choice awardees from PC PHOTO and Outdoor Photography magazines. Git 'er done!

You'll need two of these La Crosse charger

or one of these MAHA 8 cell charger

For the more technically inclined, this will be more flexible Multiplex Multi Charger but will require a power supply and adapters/battery holders. It will charge even lithium batteries.

And for the best NIMH batteries around. The new ENELOOP cells from Sanyo will hold a charge indefinitely. Its 15% capacity loss per year is a technical miracle. ENELOOP by Sanyon

I am in no way connected with any of these online merchants. Happy New Year! /bing

p.s. the original wall charger will work, but if you dont want to be plagued by short rechargeable battery life, inconsistent performance and poor reliability, a first grade charger is the only way to go. Otherwise, buy alkaline.

Explorer 2 Vs Gold Bar

Have you ever wondered how a gold bar will register on the Explorer? Well I have. Curiosity finally killed the cat. I think I am the only one who has ever done this. you could call it a world wide premier. Enjoy! Posted by Picasa
Air testing is a divisive subject amongst metal detectorists. But, heck, I'm not crazy enough yet to bury this bar in a coin garden. Take it for what it is and I must say, the result was quite a surprise. I had thoerized that it would come in like a penny. Was I wrong! A 5oz 99.99% pure gold bar registers 00 Ferrous, 24 Conductivity (00-24)on the Explorer 2. The tone comes is as sweet and high as a Morgan dollar. Who knew?!? Posted by Picasa

Charles of NY puts up Explorer Tips!

The person who is most responsible for helping me learn the Minelab Explorer is Charles Keith of Upstate New York. He sent me an email early on giving me tips and tricks to get to know my machine. Most of that is outlined in one of the earlier chapters.

Charles recently put up his own site with a very extensive Explorer Tips department. Here is a link to his site. The tool bar on the top will take you to the tip sheet. When there, a new tool bar to the left will take you to the different tips.

Thank for sharing again Charles!
