Our new Garrett ATX is getting plenty of use: Day 1 was our first trip to the beach with the ATX where we turn up a handful of modern 1 & 2 dollar coins, along with some silver jewellery. The very next day following a 3 hour drive to the west we are in the goldfields with the intention of running the ATX over an old gold nugget patch. Unfortunately the grass was so deep at that location that we had to scout around for a more suitable area to prospect. Here we experiment with the powerful non-motion mode and identification of iron targets. Please stay tuned for out continuing goldfields adventures with the ATX. Happy Hunting everyone!

This is a brief run through on the new Garrett ATX Extreme Pulse Induction metal detector. In this video we look at unpacking and deployment, coil changing, battery changing and general operation of the controls. The ATX was extensively tested in Australia in the world’s most challenging conditions for a metal detector – from the volcanic soil of North Queensland to the ironstones of the Western Australian goldfields. In these conditions the ATX performed smoothly and found small gold in areas that had previously been ‘flogged out’ by other PI detectors. We hope you enjoy this brief introduction to the ATX – we will be heading out to the goldfields in the coming weeks to bring you more videos of the ATX. Thanks for watching – Colleen and Warren.
We are pleased to announce that we have received our new Garrett ATX Extreme Pulse Induction detector courtesy of Garrett Australia. In the coming weeks we will be uploading videos featuring the ATX with our first video being an ‘unboxing’ and run through of the basic functions and controls. We will be then undertaking field trips utilizing the ATX for relic hunting in highly mineralized soils, and of course, prospecting in the goldfields. Happy Hunting! Colleen and Warren.
Thanks for having a look at our metal detecting website. In the coming weeks we have more WW2 relic hunts to be uploaded, plus a visit to a remote ghost town where we unearth an inordinate number of clock and watch parts! We always appreciate your comments and input to our videos – and hope that you continue to enjoy our outings in the Australian bush! Happy Hunting to you all! Colleen and Warren.
