I know that the musketeer is a good relic hunters detector but I was wondering if anyone out there has used it for gold detection in gold fields? If so how did it go? would an excellerator 14" coil improve it in this situation? sorry these questions probably seem a bit silly to more experienced detectorists but i am just starting out and trying to learn about how it all works. Idea Cheers Travis

Travis . A metal detector is just a metal detector . It sends out a frequency and this frequency is some how reflected to the receiving coil . Now all material have their own frequency to which it will repond . So Gold has a different frequency a Silver  or Aluminum  .  That is why it is important to have a good discrimination of materials build into your detector . It takes quite a while to get accustomed to your detector . Once you have mastered these settings it is quite easy to detect whatever you are after .   Regards   Cornelius

again I have to thank you cornelius, This is basically the understanding I had of metal detectors. so theoretically it should do alright on the gold fields then?

Well, of course you can prospect for gold with the Advantage, but tou won't find the tiniest nuggets / flakes.

Gold detectors use to run higher frequencies. At least 15 Khz, but the closer to 100, the better.

If I'm right, the muskie runs 5 Khz, which gives excellent depth but less sensitivity to small objects.
