Roland moved South from Montreal 12 years ago and is now one of the top pros in the world. His detectors of choice are the Minelab CTX 3030 and Excalibur. His finds include (as shown) an $18,500 solitare (2nd from right) a $15000 Chanel piece (at left) a 90 gram 18k Russian chain (top left) and […]
Macro Racer Tips Wouldn’t have given much for what I though was left in this section of park but the Makro Racer came though. Won’t name names but I have worked it very hard many times. Makro Racer Tips: Really getting some accuracy now by: -looking for targets that have something left on the cross-sweep or […]
It’s 18k, 22.3 grams. The Makro Racer’s 14 kHz operating frequency is great on the small stuff and low conductors. Bet quite a few coin hunters missed this one.
Interchangable coils for the Minelab Sovereign / Minelab Excalibur. I’ve heard a lot of good things from top hunters about how stable the “blue tubes” Excaliburs are–especially for use with big coils. John at Minelab did a great job refurbishing this one for me that now has w/p connectors (Bulgin Mini Bucanneer) to run all […]
I’ve gotten good results with Coiltek WOT coil in different applications and wanted to have one available for the Minelab Excalibur but not have to use it all the time as they can be hard to swing in fast water. I also really like Mr. Goldmaster’s headphones which connect via an Ikalite plug. This is […]
Found down deep (20″+) with the Dual Field. Got this the same way as my big chain–by looking for the most solid material at the bottom of the slope.
Top Caribbean pro Roland (“The King”) Dalcourt has taught me a lot about hunting saltwater water sites. This picture shows him with a custom Minelab Excalibur modified for chest mount configuration. The cables are coiled to be out of the way and there’s a hanger for the phones for when he walks the beach. His 2014 finds […]
These are some local gold finds made with the Minelab Excalibur, Minelab Sovereign and a Whites Dual Field modded by my friend Bill Lahr that runs at 12 uSc. It’s one of the best optimised detectors I’ve ever used also has a great faint range. The conditions have been poor this year and I’ve had […]
This page is about finding gold jewelry with a metal detector at park, shoreline and water sites. Here’s some of my finds from about fifteen years of hard hunting. My main machines are: Minelab Excalibur II 1000 (MGM Phones) Minelab Excalibur “Blue Tubes” W/P connectors, 8,” 10″ and 15″ WOT coils Minelab Sovereign X2 , 8″ 10″ […]
