Hello, If anyone can help me with this question, please! I live in Mexico in a very old house, and i feel that the is some kind of treasure... So somebody loaned me a metal detector and i want to see if you have used one of those before. My questions are:
I have a Bounty Hunter Fortune Hunter
Do you know how deep it can detect??
Is it reliable to find real gold or silver??
how does the machine has to beep if detects any metal.
Does it beeps slowly or fast?? or depends??
when it is on all metal, does it mean that there could be some gold or silver??
or do i have to put it on discrimination in order to get the real stuff?
Well i hope some one can answer these few questions.

i am new at this..


thank you so much!

Do you know how deep it can detect??       That would depend on the size of the target. Metal Type and Ground conditions.

Is it reliable to find real gold or silver??     Yes it will detect Real Silver and Gold.

how does the machine has to beep if detects any metal.   It will sound with Low Tones for Junk , Iron and Discriminated Items.   High Tone for other targets.

Does it beeps slowly or fast?? or depends??    In Discrimination Mode Being a Motion based machine it depends on how fast you swing the detector.   

In All metal Mode, it give a continuous tone over target.


when it is on all metal, does it mean that there could be some gold or silver??     No!   All Metal Mode detects just that All and Any Metal Items it can.


or do i have to put it on discrimination in order to get the real stuff?  Discrimination Mode allows you to set the level and some types of metals to Ignore.



Best you Read the Manual.
