Finds declared as ‘treasure’ by the Coroner become the property of the British Museum and you will be paid a percentage of their value. However, you need written permission from our Head of Parks and Open Spaces to use metal detectors in any open spaces owned or managed by us.

The AuditCheck function tests and documents detection in an automated process.
Scanning the garden also gives you a great opportunity to understand your detector properly. Depth indicators are notoriously inaccurate, so it’s always worth digging that bit deeper if nothing shows up.
Anything below that isn’t really considered a detector – it’s considered a toy. What makes one detector better than another (like cars) is the additional features and enhancements.
Batteries transmit electricity down the detector’s shaft via cables to the coil. Kids need a bit of discrimination control to find the good stuff or they get bored. Minelab have made the National Geographic Pro, which is a top quality brand, so it’s not the cheapest kids’ detector, but those really inexpensive ones are simply a waste of money. Reviewers say the target reading depth accuracy is around 8 inches for small objects like coins but if you want to go deeper the machine is perfectly capable – though its target reading accuracy lessens. This is a higher frequency than standard metal detectors that are looking for all metals.
Most of these machines will be PI and should be used in areas where gold is known to be found. All you need is to be hit by one wave while digging your hole, and the machine is toast if it’s not waterproof. So if you plan to hunt beaches where there’s lots of trash, go with a multi-frequency.
Another thing that you may want to consider when you shop for metal detectors online is the frequency range. Control panels and switches that are easy to find go a long way in making this possible.

Discrimination comes in handy because it allows you to filter out metals you don’t want to find, like soda can pull tabs and other trash.
This is what detectorists are talking about when they complain about ground mineralization. Often troughs and pockets in the ground collect a variety of objects. Always fill the search hole cleanly and remove any mess before moving on, but before you carry on your merry way, take a really slow and close sweep of the surrounding area.
I have enjoyed working with Michael, Daniel and their team at Detector Electroics Corp. hey anthony sorry but I don’t have any experience with White’s so I cant say. Would you consider The Garrett GTI2500 to be an out-dated machine?
