Hoard Hunters - Metal Detectors for Finding deeper, larger targets

A few of the major metal detector manufacturers produce 'hoard hunting' metal detectors intended to locate larger targets at far greater depths than a conventional metal detector is capable of.

They are also of great use to battlefield diggers, gold prospectors and aviation archaeology enthusiasts.

'Two Box' Type Hoard Hunters

Fisher say that as well as detecting metal, the Gemini 3 can be used to detect caves and tunnels. Fisher have been producing two box detectors for as long as I can remember and I have heard nothing but good things about them.

Around $849
